Sex might be one of those slightly taboo subjects, but it really doesn’t need to be. Because getting down and dirty with your partner is an important part of most healthy relationships. It provides an intimate connection between the two of you, as well as providing numerous health benefits...And it gives your whole body a good workout!
Sex actually has many of the health benefits associated with general exercise, including stimulating your respiratory, cardiovascular and lymphatic systems. It also has the added benefit of helping balance your testosterone and oestrogen levels which is important in maintaining a healthy heart!
Being intimate with your partner has also been proven to help lower your resting blood pressure, support your immune health by enhancing your immune globulin A, and regulating and improving sleeping patterns.
It also happens to be a fantastic way of relieving stress and tension!
Sex is a part of life, and let’s be honest, it’s quite fun! So if you are looking for a way to expand on your weekly workouts (and spice up your sex life!), why not consider adding some more adventurous positions that will test your strength and stamina?
