Science Says You Should Be Having Sex Every Day!

I don’t know about you, but I was never any good at science in school. For me, I simply didn’t understand it and found the subject very boring. Of course, everyone else is different, but science was one of my worst subjects. Maybe if I’d have known about all the cool things that science has proven back then, like why sex is good for you, I might have viewed it a little differently.

Young couple in love

There have been many scientific studies throughout the years to point out that all of the stigma around sex is wrong. It isn’t going to turn you into a sexual deviant, and it can actually be healthy for you. In fact, there are many studies that suggest we should be having sex pretty much every single day, so we take a look at just what the benefits of daily sex are.

Young, fit, and confident

After you’ve read about how sex can keep you looking young, fit, and confident, you might not want to bother reading any more. We know that we don’t, but it seems that one of the best side effects of having regular sex is that it changes the way you look a little.

Your face seems to be more relaxed with less wrinkles when you get to enjoy regular good sex, as a study by David Weeks, the Scottish researcher and clinical neuropsychologist discovered. In Weeks’ research, he asked people to guess the ages of around 3,500 European and American women and men to find out if sex really changed the way that others see us.

He found that those having regular sex not only appeared to look younger than the control group having less sex, but the women seemed much more comfortable and confident in their own skin, making them appear to be sexier.

Fight the common cold

Need another excuse? Here’s a great one. Having regular sex actually decreases your chances of catching a cold, as your body is better equipped to fight it. Imagine never having to deal with a sniffle or coughing fit at work again, all because you get great sex each night. How amazing would that be?

It was researchers at the Wilkes University in Pennysylvania who discovered this amazing fact. Through their studies, they noticed that the people have sex at least twice a week had more antigens like immunoglobulin A in their body.

It might sound complicated, but the immunoglobulin A antigen basically helps your body fight things like the common cold and the flu virus, and if that is what happens from just two nights of sex a week, imagine how much healthier and fitter you’d be having sex every single day? This is your health we are talking about after all. It just makes sense. Okay, so we don’t know if that is how it actually works, but you should try it and let us know how you do anyway, just to be on the safe side…

De-stresses you

How many times have you come home from a really stressful day at work, feeling very angry, and wanted nothing more than to let off steam? The best thing about sex is that it gives you the perfect way to do this and is a hell of a lot of fun too… but did you know it can actually help you with stress in the long run too?

In 2005, a study was conducted to see how sex changed the way we react to stress, and how we handle it in the future. They discovered that those having regular sex not only were a lot more relaxed in tense situations, but that they also had a lot lower blood pressure than those who weren’t having regular sex.

Not sure what that means? It basically suggested that sex is a good way to improve our ability to handle the difficult situations that we face every day, and that by having regular sex we are giving ourselves a healthy outlet for our anger and something fun to look forward to.

Can make you more intelligent

This is perhaps one of my favourite excuses to have sex, and that is because the findings of the study have been backed up by many different universities eager to see if it is true. As put bluntly by the Cosmopolitan website: “sex can actually make you a super genius”.

The two universities eager to look into how sex can change our way of thinking were the University of Maryland in America and also the Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea. Their studies led to them testing on mice and rats and discovering that, as the 2005 study suggested, those having sex were less stressed.

So we already know this, but they also found that, as stress can make it difficult for you to focus, the lack of stress actually made you a much more intelligent thinker and better able to tackle problem-solving challenges. Yes, sex makes you brainy. Who knew?

Lowers risk of cancer

If you aren’t yet convinced that you should be booking in that time every day to go and have sex (and really, do you need the excuse?) then you will be on this next point. Not only can it help you de-stress, fight the cold, and seem sexier to others, but it can actually lower the risk of prostate cancer in men.

The Harvard Medical School discovered that those men who ejaculated more actually reduced their risk of developing prostate cancer by a whopping 22%. That is huge, and while they do say ejaculate, sex covers that. You can actually fuck and keep cancer at bay!

Have you heard about any other miracle studies that you think we should talk about, or are you too busy calling up your favourite sex lady to arrange a night of passion to de-stress?
