Everyone knows that sex is enjoyable. More than that, there are many other benefits to sex beyond just the fact that it is fun. One is that it can help with a fever. Sex works as a natural antihistamine that combats fever and even asthma.
There is a lengthy list of other health benefits as well. Women’s bodies produce more estrogen when they’re having sex making their hair shinier and their skin softer. Sex also burns calories and strengthens muscles.
It also sharpens senses and acts as a natural painkiller. Levels of the hormone oxytocin rise and release a deluge of endorphins. These endorphins calm pain that results from any number of maladies, from migraines to arthritis.
