200 Orgasms for Better Health - But Who's Counting?
February 20, 2011
An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away? A prescription for pleasure? The titles for this section practically wrote themselves when we read about a recent study from Duke University that found a clear correlation between a healthy sex life and looking and feeling up to six years younger. A key point of this research is that this physiological fountain of youth can be attained by having over 200 orgasms a year; truly a bit of science we can get behind!
Among the benefits to be expected from this magic number:
A bolstered immune system - sexual activity boosts your body's amount of immunoglobin A, an enzyme that increases your body's resilience to illnesses like colds and the flu.
An improved appearance – the same endorphins that help to boost intimacy also keep your skin supple and improve your complexion, while the act of sex itself is an excellent calorie burner!
More refreshing sleep patterns – the drop in blood pressure and the release of natural sedatives that occur after having an orgasm can lead to sleep, and regulate your sleeping patterns.
Of course, to reach this target of 200 orgasms you don't even need a partner. When it comes to doing the job right, sometimes you've got to do it yourself -- and adding a sensual massager to the equation won't hurt your chances for pleasure!
One way your personal massager is of huge benefit is to help you reach what is known as the 'orgasmic plateau' ("I can see my orgasm from here!"). This is a stage of arousal where orgasm is imminent - and is very important, especially for women who have difficulty reaching orgasm.
So next time you feel like enjoying yourself, take extra peace of mind from the fact that the benefits go beyond pleasure, and you're doing your health a good service as well.
