Pleasure Gels to Enhance Sex & Orgasm

Benefits of Sex – The Chemical Rewards of Sex & Orgasm

We all know that sex is toe-curlingly, sheet-bitingly, swooningly fantastic but did you know that the benefits of sex go beyond simply feeling good?

Read on to understand why  “Use it or loose it” is the maxim we should all go by.

Whether alone with a trusty vibrator or together with your “for now” or forever partner, the benefits regular sex are emotional, physical and chemical.

Benefits of endorphines – the natural pain-killers released during  sex

The blissed out feeling you get after a great sex session is down to the endorphins that are released – a surge of up to 200% from the first kiss to the last caress.

Endorphins are natural pain-killers. If you’ve got a bad back or killer cramps, its best to retire to bed, not with a damp flannel, but with your lover or favourite sex toy (or both!) as pain can feel as much as 70% reduced after getting your rocks off.

Endorphins are also natural stress-busters so if things are getting on top of you, let an orgasm do its magic and you’ll feel instantly soothed in more ways that one. </p>

Benefits of DHEA

Orgasm triggers the release of DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), a natural steroid hormone with lots of amazing properties; it improves brain & cardiovascular function, helps balance & boost the immune system, helps bone-growth and tissue-repair.

DHEA keeps your skin healthy and supple and even said to process the fountain of youth: One study showed that women who have sex four to five times a week looked up to 10 years younger.

Benefits of Oestrogen –  released when you orgasm.

Research suggests that women who orgasm regularly (at least weekly) have higher levels of oestrogen in their blood leading to a healthier cardiovascular system, lower bad cholesterol, higher good cholesterol, better bone density, suppler skin and a harmonious menstrual cycle.

The calorie-burning benefits of sex

Regular orgasms can help keep you slim as well as beautiful. How many calories you burn off depends on the kind of sex you are having; an energetic sex session 3 times a week can burn off 7,500 calories, or 1kg of body fat loss per year.

But what if you’re not physically able to have chandelier-swinging sex? Or prefer more leisurely lovemaking? Simply getting turned-on will keep the pounds off as arousal triggers the body’s production of phenetylamine, a natural amphetamine that controls appetite.

 Benefits of Serotonin – the natural feel-good molecule

Serotonin levels in the brain also increase during sex. Dubbed the feel-good neurotransmitter or happy molecule, serotonine promotes a sense of well-being by balancing moods, aiding sleep and calming anxiety.

Serotonin even believed to help calm the cravings of addicts trying to kick a drug, drink or nicotine addiction.

 

Benefits of Oxytocin – the bonding hormone

Sex keeps us feeling connected with the help of the “bonding hormone”, Oxytocin.

Released at orgasm, Oxytocin is believed to help strengthen feelings intimacy and trust.

Oxytocin is also a great reason to have sex even if you’re not really in the mood as regular release of this desire-enhancing chemical will help you get your mojo back.

So, there you have it.  Sex and orgasm just doesn’t just feel good but it also does you good – rewarding you with a huge amount of physical, emotional and chemical benefits, so what are you waiting for?! Go forth and help yourself to some natural highs of a quickie or leisurely sex session…
