Sex is an activity for which Nature has fully equipped and prepared us. Unlike eating or drinking, it's hard to take to excess. You rarely see reports of copulation fatalities in the evening news. Once you've taken the necessary precautions against STDs and unwanted pregnancy, it's undoubtedly one of the most healthy and invigorating activities you could think of.

For many people, the problem is that monotony has set in through years of dull and unimaginative sex without any attempt at variation or adventure. However, with a bit of planning and initiative, you can quickly expand your sexual horizons with toys, new techniques, and erotica. It has numerous effects that have been scientifically proven beneficial to our health.

It keeps your immune system humming.

Tests have shown that people who have regular sex have more robust immune systems and are at less risk from disease and infection. This becomes more important as one age, and aging can weaken disease resistance. The sexual act helps your system generate antibodies against bacteria and viral infections.

It boosts your libido.

Sex thrives on itself. The more you do it, the more appetite you have for it. Adventurousness and experimentation are healthy. Sites like are invaluable for diversifying your sexual life and exploring the possibilities offered by innovative sex toys and accessories.

It lowers blood pressure.

Research has shown a positive correlation between regular sex and healthy blood pressure. Hypertension (high blood pressure) causes countless problems, including strokes and cognitive impairment.

It improves sleep

It has been scientifically shown that people who have frequent sex sleep better than those who don't. Among other reasons, this is because of hormones released during sexual activity. Oxytocin and prolactin cause people to feel relaxed and drowsy. Sex raises estrogen levels in women, which aids deep sleep. 

It lowers heart attack risk.

Again, this results from hormones released during the act, which reduce stress. The lowering of the blood pressure further decreases the chance of heart attack.

So, having established the therapeutic effects of love-making, it's just a matter of finding the right person and finding better and more pleasurable ways to interact with him or her. It's a super-healthy alternative to eating, drinking, or drug use as a source of sensual pleasure. It gives the benefits one gets from many therapeutic or recreational drugs without the health risks.
