10 Ways Daily Sex Improves Your Health and Your Life
As a professional speaker and certified life coach people always ask me a variety of questions for their personal and professional growth. Lately, I’ve been getting many questions regarding sex. Now, many of you have read my memoir, HERE I STAND, so you know why I would be considered an expert when it comes to this subject. For those of you who haven’t read my book, all I have to say – go buy a copy and read it. I’m kidding.
All I can say is a guy I was dating once called me the “Tony Robbins of Sex,” and if you don’t know who Tony Robbins is stop right now and google his name so you can understand why that reference is such an honor.
We’re all adults here and we all engage in sex, hopefully, we all do. So, don’t be shy, read on.
Daily Sex Equals Health
You know the saying: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Well, forget that nonsense. It’s sex that keeps the doctor away because having intercourse has many health benefits. Sex isn’t just for pleasure, even though that is a good reason to have it. However, there are numerous benefits to getting your freak on daily.
When you engage in sex your body produces a chemical called dopamine, which produces endorphins, or “happiness hormones” along with oxytocin, a hormone released during sex or while hugging, holding hands, cuddling, or kissing. These hormones increase even more when you have an emotional closeness with the person you’re having sex with.
In fact, several doctors and sexual health professionals have suggested that it is beneficial to have sex every day, if you can.
If you’re stressed about anything in life, sex will help. If you are burdened with difficult issues, people, circumstances, sex is the key. If you’re having health issues, sex is the answer.
By lowering your stress level you reduce your risk of getting sick with the common cold or diseases, e.g. cancer, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, along with depression, chronic pain and migraines.
Stress can also affect one’s ability to perform sexually especially if a guy can’t get an erection or a woman isn’t lubricated enough, which for both men and women that could lead to problems achieving an orgasm.
Sex as stress management is effective because during the time you’re involved in making love you aren’t thinking about whatever is worrying you and stress lowers over that period of time. So increase foreplay before you jump into action. The longer you can go the better. This is also true if you masturbate. A solo act helps reduce stress and makes you feel better overall. So if you can’t wait for your guy or gal to get home, handle your business.
If you do it right, meaning you work up a good sweat with a partner, you will burn tons of energy and calories, because making love is a physical activity. During intercourse or if you do any form of cardio conditioning or lift weights, your body goes through the same physiological changes – a workout is a workout. When your breathing rises blood pumps through your body and the amount of oxygen in your cells increases. Also, like exercising, making love increases stamina and gives you better, stronger orgasms.
Better yet hit the gym, then hit the sheets to get fit and have fun. Don’t shower before you engage in the nasty, which makes sex even hotter.
If you want to know what the secret is to the fountain of youth, forget spending thousands of dollars on vitamins, plastic surgery, Botox, just have lots of sex. If you make love just three times a week that will make you look ten years younger. Imagine what having daily sex will do for you.
“It’s good for you to have good sex,” says David Weeks, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, whose study on the effects of sex on aging appears in his book, Secrets of the Superyoung.
According to Amy Levine, sex coach and founder of Ignite Your Pleasure, “sexual intercourse boosts our immune system, prevents stagnation, allows us to feel more alive and sweat out toxins from our pores.”
Sex also helps clear up acne and makes your skin glow and keeps your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance, especially as you get older.
According to the National Vital Statistics Report heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. In fact 1 in 4 people die daily from heart disease, which amounts to roughly 610,000 people. Every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack.
One way to improve your heart and lessen your chances of getting heart disease is through exercise, and sex is a form of exercise. You have better sexual performance when your heart is strong because it improves your cardio conditioning which is involved if you have a rigorous sexual encounter. If you want to develop more stamina and power in the bedroom, you have to get your heart right. Doing cardio conditioning workouts will carry over into the bedroom or any room during sex.
5. Ladies, Stronger Pelvic Muscles
Since sex involves several muscles in the body it can definitely help you develop stronger pelvic muscles, which is great for when you engage in sexual positions where you have to squat, e.g cowgirl.
Another benefit of having regular sex is you’ll have stronger bowel function, regulated mensural cycles, and bladder control, which is good for avoiding incontinence. This becomes a problem for roughly 30% of women, especially as they age.
Also, according to the National Health Service (NHS) when you strengthen your pelvic muscles you have better orgasms.

- Guys, Protect Your Prostate
Guys, especially those over 40 years old, if you want to guard against erectile dysfunction (the result of poor blood circulation) or impotence sex is the answer. Through frequent sexual activity men ejaculate and that is what helps rid the body of toxins. According to a study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, “men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) during intercourse or by self-stimulation, were less likely to get prostate cancer.
To boost your libido make sure you get in at least 30 minutes a day of heart pumping, sweat-breaking exercise.
Also, men the more sex you have the more testosterone you will produce, and it is testosterone that makes you horny.
- Mental Health
Like exercise, sex, whether with a partner or by masturbation, helps people reduce stress and anxiety and increase happiness, which has an overall psychological and emotional benefit for a healthier life.
- Improves Your Mood
Who can possibly remain in a negative state of mind after going a round or two under the sheets with a man or woman who knows how to work it out? As you’re relaxing in the afterglow, close your eyes and savor the feeling, think of nothing but how good you feel at the moment.
Making love also improves your mood if you’re dealing with pain, like a headache. Don’t use that as an excuse not to enjoy sex, because, ladies, every time you have an orgasm, endorphins release which reduces aches and pains.
“Orgasm can block pain,” says Barry R. Komisaruk, PhD, a distinguished service professor at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. “We’ve found that vaginal stimulation can block chronic back and leg pain and many women have told us that genital self-stimulation can reduce menstrual cramps arthritic pain, and in some cases even headache.”
Sleep Much Better
If you want to increase post-coital relaxation, which means how calm you feel after any great form of exercise, then sex it up. If you have trouble sleeping, sex could be the cure. You’ll be tired afterwards, become lethargic, and drift off to sleep.
“After orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, which is responsible for the feelings of relaxation and sleepiness” after sex, says Sheenie Ambardar, MD, a psychiatrist in West Hollywood, CA.
Ever heard of the word dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)? It is a hormone that is released when a man or woman has an orgasm, which helps prolong your life by improving immunity, memory, brain function, and repairs tissue. As people age their level of DHEA significantly drop, which results in many men and women taking DHEA supplements. However, having more sex is a better way to go.
When you are fit and healthy, have a strong heart, toned muscles, increased circulation of oxygen these are some of the factors that add years to your life.
Having sex daily is the best medicine one could ask for. It is far better than any prescription drug. However, trying to have sex every day may be unrealistic for a number of reasons, especially if someone isn’t in a relationship or doesn’t just want to “hook up.” In that case, the next best thing is masturbation. Brush off those sex toys and gels and erotic videos.
Having sex daily is one thing. Having good sex is something else, which will be discussed in another article.
** A special note – This article isn’t to say men and women should be out in the world having unprotected or unsafe sex just to reap health benefits. If you are engaging in sex it is important to know the sex status and history of the person you choose to have sex with. If you don’t know, use condoms. Safety first.
