Research of the X -rated variety indicates that the more time spent between the sheets is time very well spent.
It’s estimated that half an hour of sex burns 144 calories – the equivalent of an easy-paced 30 minutes on a stationary bike. In addition to cardio, a recent study found that oxytocin, a chemical in the brain released during sex, lowers the stress chemical cortisol and may signal your body to stop storing fat in your midsection. An additional benefit is that sexual activity reduces snacking.
Burnt calories and a better body aren’t the only benefits of sex. Across multiple studies, researchers have found a connection between sex and increased neurogenesis in the hippocampus. In laymen’s terms, the findings suggest that more sex means better memory, greater learning capabilities and increased analytical thinking.
Svelte, smart and stress-free.
I wish you all the best,
