Knowing all of you, we hardly need to give you a reason to have loads of sex. But just in case you missed the memo that sex is fucking awesome, here are 10 reasons to do the dirty on the daily.
Having sex every day is like having a shot of pure confidence with your morning coffee. The knowledge that someone is not just willing but literally dripping with arousal at the thought of your hot naked body does more than most pep talks ever could.
Plus, you get to spend the rest of the day walking around feeling like a total stud/sexy minx. Win.
It’s hard to be angry with someone when they’re completely naked and on top of you. That skin-to-skin contact does wonders for the intimacy of a relationship, so say goodbye to the kinks in your connection and say hello to the kinky instead.
3. Something for you
Many of us are guilty of spending the whole day on other people. Whether that’s at work, looking after family, checking up on friends or running errands to help others, this habit is great for you as a humanitarian, but doesn’t often leave time for yourself.
Including sexy time in your everyday routine ensures that you at least get to spend some of your day entirely devoted to your own enjoyment.
4. Sleep aid
If you’re having sex at nighttime right before you head to bed, it can be a huge help in getting off to sleep.
As your body calms down and relaxes after the intense physical activity and orgasm, you’ll quickly feel the tiredness set in and will be more inclined to nod off and enter a deep sleep (hopefully complete with dream replays of the steamy action).
5. Greater sex drive
The more sex you have, the more you want. And there’s nothing wrong with that. There’s a reliable way to increase your stamina and libido - practice, practice, practice.
Every day there are stressful situations popping up at work, at home, with your family and your friends. Sex, on the other hand, is a fabulous stress-fighting exercise that can help balance out anything from a bad hair day to a bad day at work. It gives you a natural hit of dopamine and endorphins, which are the drugs that leave you feeling like you’re looking through at the world with rose-tinted glasses all the time.
7. Flexibility like a pretzel
You might not be one for yoga, but having sex every day might help you improve your flexibility. All those stretching muscles and strengthening core exercises build up over time, especially if you’re trying out impressive positions.
Spend an hour kissing and you’ll burn about 65 calories. Spend an hour having sex and your calorie burn will be in the hundreds.
We’re recommended to get a good 30 minutes of solid exercise five days per week at minimum, so would you rather be sweating up a storm on the treadmill or between the sheets?
9. Ward off colds and flu
Move over vitamin C, sex is on the menu and it can work wonders for your immune system.
Plus, if you refer back to point 6, stress can reduce the strength of your immune system, so fighting stress and building your immune system with sex serves a double helping of cold-fighting goodness.
10. Because why not?
Seriously, why shouldn’t we all be having sex every day? It’s healthy, damn fun, and definitely a habit worth developing!
