The very mention of female orgasm is enough to raise curious interest from even the most prim of company. Indeed female orgasm has been the subject of fascination for centuries. Whilst many women do not reliably experience an orgasm during intercourse and it is not necessary for a woman to climax in order to become pregnant, there is no dispute over the benefits and pleasure that female orgasm hold.
So, here are five benefits of female orgasm you may not have considered:
Increase your Pain Threshold
Having an orgasm produces a pain-blocking affect, so you won’t be as sensitive to pain, indeed research conducted by Komisaruk and Whipple show how orgasm can dull pain.
Improve your Immune System
Prevent coughs and sneezes by having more orgasms – well it’s more fun than cold powders. Past research has shown that achieving an orgasm boosts your immune system, and a 1999 study of college students showed that those who had sex once or twice a week had immunoglobulin levels that were 30% higher than those who were abstinent or has sex more infrequently. You could be forgiven for thinking that more intimacy would increase the risk of catching colds, but the deep relaxing and uplifting effects of intimacy have been shown to have many health benefits.
Increase Relaxation and Stress Reduction
In good relationships, lovemaking can be deeply relaxing and also supportive. Many studies show that deep relaxation stimulates the immune system and helps to contribute to good health and longevity.
Improve your Menstrual Cycle
It can help your menstrual cycle. If you are constantly battling with painful or irregular periods then you might be interested to learn that a 2007 Planned Parenthood report reported that several studies have linked regular sex (meaning once or twice a non-menstruating week )to more regular periods, along with relief from menstrual cramps and PMS.
Scientific research shows that people who regularly have good sex are happier. According to a study in the Journal of Psychosomatic Research, which studied 4,000 women in the U.S. and examined their mood, sexuality, and menstrual cycle, strong links existed between sexual interest and an overall sense of well-being. And those who had higher senses of well-being also had a stronger sex drive and overall higher quality of life.
