Some scientific studies suggest that a loving relationship, physical touch and sex can bring health benefits such as lower blood pressure or even fewer colds.

2. Sex counts as excercise. It uses about five calories per minute, four more calories than watching TV. Get busy and build a natural muscles.
3. It helps fot figh prostate cancer. It is said by one study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Men who ejaculated frequently were less likely to get prostate cancer (and yes, even the masturbation counts).
4. Sexually active people take fewer sick days. Looks like the sex is part of human immune system (in some way).
5. Sex is great for stress management. These two things are linked in few ways. Have you ever wondered how much truth there was to the idea that a healthy sex life works nicely as a stress salve?
6. Happy feeling. Sexual activity releases endorphins and other feel-good hormones.
7. Sex can actually make it easier to fall asleep. Plus, having an orgasm releases a hormone called prolactin, which makes you feel relaxed and sleepy. All of that leads up to a nice sleeping.

Sex therapists have long recommended that women do Kegel exercises (flexing the muscles in your pelvic floor) throughout the day, but also during sex. Why? Not only can the exercises help increase pleasure, they also strengthen the muscles associated with incontinence.
10. Fewer colds. People who have sex were found to have higher levels of an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA), according to researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania. These antibodies help combat diseases and keep the body safe from colds and flu.
