According to the expert, the importance of sex is difficult to overestimate. It improves physical health, calms the nervous system, relieves stress and prolongs youth. Scientists have shown that those people who indulge in intimate pleasures more often have lower levels of cortisol, which provokes anxiety. In addition, the senses of partners are tuned in a special way in preparation for intercourse, which helps to lay the foundation for a strong relationship. Moreover, not only contact itself has a positive effect on a person, but also foreplay that gives pleasure. Sex has a positive effect on the protective properties of the immune system. As proved by experts at Wilkes University, just one intercourse per week increases the level of immunoglobulin A (IgA) by 30%. As a result, a person becomes less susceptible to infections, viruses and pathogenic bacteria.
During sex, many muscles in the body are activated, including the pelvic floor. This is a kind of prevention of constipation and urinary incontinence. In addition, regular sex helps to lose weight, strengthens the heart, improves sleep quality, relieves pain, positively affects the brain and fights old age.
