So we know sex is fun, but is it necessary? The answer is simply, yes.
According to researchers, making love could be one of the few pleasures in life that is genuinely good for you.
Not only does sex boost your mood, but frequent lovemaking also boosts levels of immunoglobulin, key immune cells that fight infection. There is also growing evidence to show it not only boosts your physical well-being, but increases longevity.
A flurry of small studies suggests sex is as good for your health as vitamin D and broccoli. A healthy sex life not only relieves stress, improves sleep and burns calories; it can also reduce pain, ease depression, strengthen blood vessels, boost the immune system and lower the risk of prostate and breast cancer.
So go on, make love and live a long and healthy life.
