When Doctor Penis suggests that it’s time to engage in sexual activity, most men would do well to heed the call. After all, Doctor Penis is not only, well, a penis, but he also understands that indoor sports offer some unique sexual health benefits. Even if most men already find sex to be intensely enjoyable, it’s encouraging to know that proper penis care and usage can be a great long-term health investment: one that will outlast the pleasure of an orgasm.
So what are some of these benefits, Doctor Penis?
A Fitter Body.
Having regular sex can be a fantastic full body workout for any man. Plenty of guys will work themselves into a healthy sweat with all the vigorous thrusting that accompanies sex, increasing their heart rates, and burning some spare calories in the process. Granted, sexual exercise alone will only burn about five calories per minute, but depending on the amount of sexual activity that any given man enjoys in his day-to-day routine, those calories can add up quickly. Plus, maintaining all those positions will often strengthen various muscles groups – including some that most men don’t even think to train at the gym.
A Stronger Immune System.
Studies have shown that people who have sex regularly take fewer sick days, suggesting that healthy sexual activity can do wonders for the average man’s immune system. Of course, sex should be supplemented with eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of sleep, and using proper protection when engaging in erotic play. But rest assured, all those orgasms could offer extra protection come cold season.
Decreased Blood Pressure and Heart Attack Risk.
Sexual intercourse can have a positive effect on a person’s blood pressure, leading to a lower systolic reading -the reading that measures the pressure in the arteries as the heart beats.
By reducing blood pressure and boosting the heart rate, an active sex life can also lessen the risk of suffering a heart attack. This is especially true for men. Sexual activity increases the production of testosterone, which plays an important role in keeping the heart healthy and decreasing the risk of osteoporosis.
Lowered Prostate Cancer Risk.
The Journal of the American Medical Association published a report which argued that men who ejaculate 21 times or more each month have a substantially lower risk of developing prostate cancer. The type of sexual activity that precedes these ejaculations doesn’t matter: intercourse, oral sex, masturbation, and even wet dreams qualify. The bottom line is, keeping those pipes clean may be the key to maintaining a healthy prostate.
Improved Outlook and Mood.
Stress and tension are among the most serious health problems faced by men of modern society. Sex, especially sex that builds to an orgasm, can be an effective release valve for stress and tension. It can also help many men sleep better at night by releasing a soothing hormone called prolactin into the body. That’s why squeezing in some great sexual play – with or without a partner – the night before a big presentation at work or a long trip can put many men on pathways to success.
