Whether you're trapped in a relationship--kidding--or are currently rolling solo, having an orgasm every day should always make it to the top of your to-do list.
While, yes, it is true that it is one of the most pleasurable experiences a human being can have, orgasm itself brings with it a host of other delicious and delectable benefits.
While this may initially appear to be one sore chore, the benefits you'll receive definitely outweigh any complaints you'll hear from your partner (or any callouses that begin forming on your hand.)
So, without further ado, here are eight sexy reasons to give your body the daily blast it needs:
1. It's Pleasurable and Fun
Well, I'll be damned. Who couldn't have seen this one coming. On a real note, though, have you ever heard someone complaining about an orgasm they had? Probably not. A quick trip to O-Town is guaranteed to turn any frown upside down, so why wouldn't you want to do it more?
2. You're Perform Better on the Job
A recent study revealed that men and women feel more engaged and perform better at their jobs if they have had an orgasm within the last 24 hours.
If you're looking for that secret hack to add a little more, "pep in your step," while working hard, having a good ol' roll in the hay or rubbing one out may perhaps be that secret sauce you've been searching for.
3. Your Heart Will Thank you
While hitting the treadmill or mounting the stationary bike is a noble feat for our bodies, it isn't always fun to do.
But you know what is fun? Having an orgasm.
The British National Health Service (NHS) said, "anything that exercises your heart is good for you...sexual arousal sends the heart rate higher and the number of beats per minute reaches its peak during orgasm."
And if we didn't already need more reasons to choke the chicken, science has got our backs (and cocks) once again.
4. It Lowers Your Stress Levels
In our modern environment, cortisol levels are at an all-time high. Cortisol, if you don't know, is the stress hormone. It courses through your veins when your schedule is busting at the seams! It is even released when someone drinks coffee!
Now, couple that with all the daily activities one has to manage, it's no wonder we're a stressed-out bunch.
The good news? There's a cure. And it's Au natural.
Even better. It's free. And right between your legs.
Giving yourself the "Big O" releases a flood of hormones, painkilling endorphins, and yummy neurotransmitters into the brain, giving you the pleasure you've been craving.
This "soup," if you will, accounts for that warm and lovey-dovey feeling you'll have after the fact, alongside increased feelings of trust, self-esteem, and optimism.
The perfect prescription for the stressed out somebody.
5. Your Sleep Will Improve
Post-orgasm the body will begin to emit a concoction of humanly ingredients (hormones) that make you want to pass out into that infamous naked and cuddly slumber with your special someone.
Nothing wrong if it's just your vibrating wand or hand though.
In Barry Komisaruk and Beverly Whipple's book The Orgasm Answer Guide, they even reference a study where 32% of women reported masturbating prior to bedtime to help them fall asleep faster.
6. You'll Have a Stronger Immune System
The British National Health Service reported that a study conducted in Pennsylvania discovered that students who had sex between one and two times per week had higher levels of an illness-fighting substance than their "not getting laid" counterparts.
The 'Immunoglobulin A' was 30% higher in those who were actively engaging in regular sex than their fellow students who had to endure a dry spell.
7. You're Less Likely to Have a Side Piece
Now, first let me say that there is NEVER a good reason to cheat. However, a study in 2013 found that women who frequently fake orgasm in bed and are therefore unable to get sexual gratification from their partner, are significantly more likely to cheat.
So no, this does NOT mean you should cheat.
But if you're not getting sexual gratification in your relationship, then leave. No need for dishonesty. It's that simple.
8. It Protects Your Prostate
As if we needed another reason to talk about prostates on this website.
A study carried out by Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women Hospital found that men who had 21 pulsating (ok, I added that word) orgasms or more per month significantly reduced their risk of contracting prostate cancer by just over 22%!
So next time you stick a toy up your ass or you want to drag your partner into the bedroom, remember, it's for your health!
So there you have it.
No matter how booked you are today, don't forget to squeeze in a little me-time. It isn't just for fun, it's for your health!
