Orgasms: They're Healthy For You!

Orgasms: They're Healthy For You!

“An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away”

Since we all needed a reason to masturbate or bonk even more, lets delve into why you need more orgasms in your life! Didn’t you know? They’re good for you!

Read more about how that big-O is much MUCH more than just a wonderful feeling, and more importantly how it plays a major role in maintaining our mental health, physical health, appearance, and overall well-being. Like all good things, they cum (pun-intended) with substance!


They Are Nature’s Stress-Relief:

As anybody who has ever been rendered mute or comatose by sex or masturbation can attest, orgasms have some seriously sedating powers. That’s because climaxing triggers surges of oxytocin and prolactin, which are powerful relaxant hormones, and combined with the endorphins released during sex, can leave you leave you in a far more relaxed state.


They Are Good For Your Heart and Immunity:

Orgasms lower your cortisol levels, which is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself. Elevated levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, have been linked to everything from suppressed immunity to heart disease.


They Increase Intimacy and Confidence:

You can thank oxytocin for this one too! The ‘cuddle hormone’ surges after orgasm, deepening your bond to the person who just gave you that orgasm. And if the person who just gave you that orgasm is yourself, all the better, grow your sexual confidence with the rewards you deserve!


They Make You Prettier:

“Are you wearing make-up?” No, I just had an orgasm this morning.

HGH doesn’t just make you tall or super-strong – it also makes you good looking! The human growth hormone, which is released during orgasm (who knew?), also stimulates collagen and aids in giving your skin, hair, and nails a lovely glow, and appearing more supple.

They Keep You In Shape - Where It Counts:

Pilates? No thanks.  Kegels however….

When you have an orgasm, the muscles in your pelvic region contract and release in synchronisation with the pulses of your body, in turn toning and strengthening the pelvic floor. And as all women know or will eventually come to experience, the pelvic floor is pretty important, and is essential for everything from core strength to bladder control. Use kegel balls during masturbation to see even more improvement as the muscles are forced to clench around a weight object!


Orgasms Are Brain Fuel, Ask the Experts:

Orgasms increase blood flow to all parts of the brain, whereas most activities only increase blood flow to certain areas of the brain. As Nan Wise a certified sex therapist, neuroscientist, author of book Why Good Sex Matters, stated "We found that orgasm increased blood flow to so many brain regions, that the brain lighted up like a Christmas tree. Increased blood flow means that the brain is getting a wonderful and nutritious workout."

Now we’re not 100% sure how they conducted this experiment, however, where do I sign up?


They are Great For Pain Relief… Or At Least Getting Pain Off Your Mind:

Out of Panadol?  Never fear, and let your body naturally-recover in the best way possible. The post-orgasm oxytocin and endorphin surge can relieve pain. And some research has found that even thinking about sex gets the gears turning, and  can relieve pain – the good times really do outweigh the bad!

Next-time I’m at the mercy of an unforgiving headache – I might just have to whip out my trusty womanizer! I mean… what’s the worst that can happen?


And Last But Not Least, They Feel… Orgasmic:

Okay, you probably knew that, but it just seemed wrong not to mention it. Orgasm because it feels great! That’s why we do it after all!


Final Thoughts

Now we’re sure there are many more reasons out there for people to orgasm, some of them might even be quite personal to yourself. However, all orgasms are valid, and they are truly a human right!
