Orgasm Hard To Add Years To Your Life

by DailyHealthPost Editorial

For men, specifically, studies have indicated that having sex and orgasms more frequently may lower the risk of eventually developing prostate cancer.

Sex is also a fairly aerobic exercise, and can help burn calories while also exercising the heart muscle and improving blood flow.

This may be one of the reasons that sex has been so thoroughly linked to a reduction in heart disease and cardiac events.

Beyond that, sex and orgasms are both great stress relievers. Both lower blood pressure and help you sleep better, and sex can even help to reduce levels of pain.

Add to that the hormonal shifts that come from sex and orgasm that might have any number of effects, and there’s a very long list of biological reasons why sex is good for your body.

Defining a Causal Relationship

It’s incredibly difficult to link orgasms, specifically, to longevity. After all, sex and orgasms don’t happen in a vacuum (although your mileage may vary) – when you factor in potential relationships, mental and physical health, quality of life, and other similar variables, it becomes impossible to tell which way the causality goes.

Do healthy people have more orgasms? Are they healthy because they have so many orgasms? Or are they in good health and having satisfying sex due to a relationship that may have an additional effect on their longevity? But all that said, it certainly can’t hurt to try!

What other factors do you think might contribute to the relationship between more sex and longer life?
