Having a healthy sex life is an important way to stay healthy! Here is a Baker’s Dozen list of reasons why:

- Healthy sex improves your sense of smell! Sex creates a surge of a hormone called prolactin to surge throughout your body. This causes stem cells in the brain to develop new neurons in the brain's olfactory bulb, which is your brain’s smell center.

- Healthy sex reduces your risk of heart disease. In a 2001 the Queens University found that having sex three or more times a week, reduced men’s risk of heart attack or stroke by half!

- Healthy Sex is the perfect Sport. Sex boosts production of testosterone, which leads to stronger bones and muscles. Men's Health magazine has gone so far as to call the bed the single greatest piece of exercise equipment ever invented. It stretches and tones just about every muscle in the body and could be as beneficial or more than swimming.

- Healthy Sex is an instant cure for mild depression. It releases the chemical endorphin into the bloodstream that gives you a sense of euphoria and well-being.

- Healthy Sex is a great pain reliever. Levels of the hormone oxytocin surge to five times their normal level right before you orgasm. The surge of oxytocin releases endorphins, which alleviate the pain of everything from headache, arthritis, and even migraines.

- Healthy Sex improves your immune system. Wilkes University in Pennsylvania says people that have sex once or twice a week show a thirty percent higher level of an antibody called immunoglobulin A, which is known to boost the immune system.

- Healthy Sex helps keep the prostate healthy. Some urologists believe they see a relationship between infrequency of ejaculation and cancer of the prostate. Be careful with this one guys. Having sex with multiple partners can, all by itself, raise a man's risk of cancer by up to 40%. That's because he runs an increased risk of contracting sexual infections. You are better off doing it solo if you don’t have a monogamous partner. A study recently published by the British Journal of Urology International asserts that men in their 20s can reduce their chance of getting prostate cancer by ejaculating more than five times a week by third.

- Healthy Sex is the perfect beauty treatment. Scientific tests find that when woman make love they produce amounts of the hormone estrogen, which make hair shiny and skin smooth. For both men and women, it reduces your chances of suffering dermatitis, skin rashes, and blemishes due to the sweat that’s produced when you’re engaging in it. It cleanses your pores and makes your skin glowing.

- Healthy Sex helps you breathe better. Sex is a natural antihistamine which helps combat asthma and hay fever.

- Healthy Sex helps your intimate relationship. Taking time to create wonderful sexual experiences for your partner increases your emotional, mental, and spiritual bonds with them. Don’t forget those same benefits can be applied to yourself!

All of these great things going for sex and it’s fun and feels SO good. So, put sex at the top of your priority list of your Daily Things to Do. Remember to keep it healthy though by using safe sex practices or maintaining a monogamous relationship.
