You want to live a happy, healthy, and long life don’t you?  I know I do. If you want those things then have more sex.  You and your husband will thank me for it.

Here’s why I say this.  For a lot of women sex may not be on your list of how you’d like to spend your night. Especially, after you’ve spent all day with kids hanging off your arms, or working 9-5.  Sleep is what’s on your mind. I know.  I’ve been there.   Of course we are doing a great thing when we have sex with our hubbies -tightening the bonds of our marriage, being one (yada yada).  

Besides all of those great things, sex really does a body good!

Just think, sex can keep you fit, and it can help you shed the extra weight.  The older you get the slower your metabolism runs.  By the time you are 35 years old your body burns 100 less calories per day than your 25 year old counterpart.  Having sex is similar to a High Intensity Interval Workout (HIIT).  You may have seen an infomercial for a workout called Insanity. These folks go HARD.  It’s an interval workout where you exercise at an intense level for a certain amount of time, followed up by a less intense period, then back to intense again.  Well, what does that sound like to you?  Sex!!!  My husband and I call it Sexercise.

 Studies show that interval training for just 15 minutes a few times a week can produce better results than someone running an hour on a treadmill. This type of workout burns more fat than jogging. Not only that, it helps speed up your metabolism! The best part is that you only need your hubby, and no gym membership or extra equipment is required.  

How many calories can you burn having sex?  You can burn at least 80-300 calories depending on how long and intense your time is with you man.   A well timed quickie can help get rid of those love handles (…if you know what I mean).

In addition, sex helps you relieve stress, and studies show it has helped relieve depression.  It also boosts the immune system, helping you avoid nasty colds and other sickness.  Sex can improve your PMS symptoms (hallelujah), arthritis pain, and headaches.  Once your husband finds out about that last one you may need to lose the “Honey I have a headache” line you’ve been using.  

Being too tired for sex is probably the number one excuse (besides having a headache) that a woman gives when she doesn’t want to have sex.  You may want to stop using that one too. Research shows that oxytocin which is released when you have an orgasm helps you to sleep better.  Sleep not only helps you prepare for the next day, it also helps you get to a healthy weight. 

So next time you think of telling your honey “not tonight” just think of all the benefits of sex you’ll be missing out on.  You can sleep better, get fit, and increase your metabolism in just 20 minutes of sexercise. (wink)
