Sex can improve your overall well-being in various ways, including;

Regular sex can boost your immune by stimulating the production of certain antibodies that ward off viruses, bacteria, and germs that trigger illnesses.

Sex is a form of pelvic floor workout in women, strengthening the bladder and improving its efficiency.

Orgasming during sex triggers the release of the happy hormones dopamine and oxytocin. These chemicals can aid in lowering stress, elevating mood, increasing self-esteem, and boosting mental clarity for a happier life.

Sex is also good for your health; it stabilizes heart rates, reduces blood pressure, and risks heart attacks by regulating testosterone and estrogen hormones.

It can aid in inhibiting leg and back pain by blocking the pain receptors with the feel-good chemicals released.
