You can never know everything about sex, even though you think about yourself as a total sexpert. It does not matter when you started your sexual life or how many partners you had, because even though you might be an expert in sex positions, there are some interesting facts you probably did not know about sex, so here are some examples.
Sex helps you reduce stress
There is no need to read any researches to agree to the fact that sex comes with some physical benefits, but it is important to know that it comes with some health benefits as well. Getting busy helps you reduce stress, lower blood pressure and calm nerves. It is the best way to get rid of stress before a big presentation at work for instance.
Great choice for when you are sick too
Many studies show that engaging in sexual intercourse when being sick can actually boost the immune system when feeling a little under the weather. However, this does not mean that you have to neglect taking pills prescribed by your doctor, having some hot soup and sleeping a lot to get better quicker.
Semen is quite low in calories
In case you were wondering, it only contains 36 calories in a teaspoon. According to scientists, semen is composed of amino acids, fructose, citric acid, enzymes and water.
Condoms do not affect pleasure that much
Many people claim that their sexual pleasure is affected when using a condom, but truth is there are some studies that show this is actually not true. Both men and women enjoy sex as much when using condoms as they do when they are not using them. In fact, there are certain types of condoms, those pleasure-enhancing creations that can actually make sex better.
Traveling and one-night stands go hand in hand
Numerous men and women claim that traveling is the perfect time for having one-night stands and this is also what many researches present. More than 50% of men and nearly 40% of women have had at least one such experience while traveling.
Nipplegasms do exist
You should add this to your list of those crazy orgasms, because it is proven to actually exist. Nipple stimulation results into the release of oxytocin, which eventually leads to causing those vaginal and uterine contractions that are associated with orgasm. Automatically, blood flow in the genital area increases and makes some (lucky) women have orgasm.
Sex can help women have cycles that are more regular
Believe it or not, sex can actually help women who have period trouble, because it can actually make cycles more regular, especially if the sexual intercourse is happening at least once a week. As a result, sex should definitely be included on the list of cures women should try.
It may be a cure for headaches
When having headaches, most people’s first instinct is to reach for that pain reliever. However, before making that step, you should think about a more natural approach, that is sex. One research shows that more than 50% of people suffering from migraine reported that sex was of great help for them to ease their pain.
