2) Orgasms Help With Mental Health & Stress

In recent times pretty much everyone is battling to maintain their Mental Health. The current generation is suffering from a lot of stress usually due to work pressure. When an individual is under a stressful condition, a hormone called cortisol is released.

Cortisol is a hormone that regulates your body’s response to stress and it is essential that the cortisol levels of the body stay stable as too less or too much of it harms the body.

When someone orgasms, the brain releases feel-good hormones such as oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine, etc. which will reduce stress and result in improved mood, and helps relieve stress.

3) It Helps Keep Skin Healthy and Glowing

Healthy and glowing skin is something many women dream to have but due to all the stress, hormonal changes, and Menstruation, this dream sadly fails to come true. Well, there is something that might help!

There are multiple reasons why sexual arousal or orgasm in simple words can help get healthy and glowing skin. It has been found that having an orgasm raises estrogen levels in females. Now, Estrogen helps in the prevention of skin aging in several ways.

An increase in Estrogen helps prevent the decrease in collagen which is one of the most important proteins in the body and helps maintain skin thickness and, at the same time makes the skin resistant to wrinkles.

At the same time, it helps prevent breakouts as during orgasm the oxytocin released by the body, decreases the amount of cortisol (stress hormone) hence, any woman who is into regular sexual activity is less likely to break out.

There is a good increase in the blood flow during sex, which means that the blood cells carrying oxygen also increase. When the amount of oxygen in your body increases it leads to more production of collagen which helps keep the skin healthy and glow! This is usually referred to as “post-sex glow”.

4) It Increases Brain Activity

It is no news to us that when there is sexual stimulation it tends to increase blood flow in the whole body and that includes the brain as well. The blood flow in the brain increases drastically while engaging in a kind of sexual activity which results in increased brain activity.

Having an orgasm of any kind stimulates the brain the same way as when you have your favorite dessert or hear your favorite song. Thus, having sex before sleep leads to better sleep.

5) Orgasms Boost Immunity

It has been studied that when women reach orgasm certain components of the immune system get activated. Some studies indicated that regular orgasms had a positive impact and increased the number of white blood cells in the body.

At the same time during female orgasm, a hormone known as DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) is released which helps balance the immune system and assists in keeping the bones and muscles healthy.

7) Orgasms Could Boost Fertility

When a woman experiences orgasm, the uterus goes through multiple reflexive muscle contractions, and according to a theory, these involuntary contractions in the uterus create a sort of vacuum that helps pull the sperm inside the egg more swiftly.

However, there is not a lot of scientific evidence to back this theory it won’t hurt to give it a try!

8) Orgasms Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor Muscles

These are the muscles that can be found at the bottom of the pelvis supporting the organs like the uterus and bladder in women. A woman must have strong pelvic floor muscles as if they are weakened it can lead to leakage of urine and some other very problematic issues. Kegel exercises are types of exercises that help women make their pelvic floor stronger.

When a woman undergoes any kind of sexual arousal or orgasm the same muscles that get worked during Kegel exercise start getting worked up which leads to stronger pelvic floor muscles. a recent study argued that regular orgasms would result in a stronger pelvic floor.

9) It Tends to Improve Sleep

By far the best benefit of orgasm is that it helps you get better sleep. After any sexual activity, the hormone prolactin is released. Prolactin is a hormone that is primarily responsible for lactation but once released post sex helps sleep quicker. At the same time release of oxytocin helps to get a peaceful sleep.

Many people in the current times suffer from sleeping disorders such as insomnia, and narcolepsy, and engaging in any kind of sexual practice could help fight it.
