Get Your Sexy On [Infographic]

Want to boost your health and spirits? Go have an orgasm! Immediately before an orgasm, oxytocin levels surge to five times their normal level. Oxytocin releases endorphins and corticosteroids, which alleviates arthritis, chronic back pain, migraines, and menstrual cramps. Men in their 20s can reduce their chance of developing prostate cancer by one-third by ejacuating more than five times a week, according to the British Journal of Urology International.

When was the last time you had sex? Increased frequency of sexual intercourse correlated with a decrease in breast cancer in a study of women who had never given birth. Sex can help you get fitter—one sexual encounter burns about 200 calories, which is same as running 15 minutes on the treadmill. Women will be especially pleased to learn that regular sex leads to shiny hair, a glowing complexion, and bright eyes as a result of the hormone DHEA.

As you can imagine, when our relationships go through a slump, our health deteriorates. An argument with your partner that lasts for half an hour can slow your body’s ability to heal by at least a day. Do you tend to agree with this? Do you feel a natural high immediately after sex?
