Sexual activity has positive effects on hormones, immune function, endorphins, and muscle strengthening; even if the effect is just a big smile on your face, sex does the body good.Sex and aging

Getting older isn’t all bad news. In fact, when it comes to having sex, you can be ageless, because sexual satisfaction is still possible at any age. Although age-related changes may necessitate some adjustments, where there’s a will there’s a way. For both men and women, physiological changes to the body make having sex a different experience as you age, but different doesn’t mean worse; it just means adapting. After you understand what to expect sexually as you age, you’ll see that sexual pleasure and intimacy don’t have to fade along with the color of your hair. 

Benefits of healthy sexual activity

Healthy sexual activity has many health benefits.  Regular and enthusiastic sex offers a host of measurable physiological advantages, probably more than anyone even knows. Sexual activity has positive effects on hormones, immune function, endorphins, and muscle strengthening; even if the effect is just a big smile on your face, sex does the body good.Take a look at these examples of what sex can do for the body:

  • You live longer. Men who reported the highest frequency of orgasm live longer than men who had less-frequent orgasms.
  • You have a reduced risk of heart disease. Research shows that men who had sex three or more times a week reduced their risk of heart attack or stroke by half.
  • You can get some exercise. A regular bout of sex burns around 50 calories—about the same as walking 15 minutes on a treadmill. The pulse rate in a person who’s aroused rises from about 70 beats per minute to 150. However, don’t substitute sex for other forms of exercise. You would have to engage in sexual activity for many hours to achieve the same aerobic benefits as other options.
  • You experience a sense of well-being. Levels of the hormone oxytocin increase during intercourse and in turn releases endorphins, which can give a sense of well-being and can even reduce pain because of the action of the endorphins and the pain receptors.
  • You get sick less. People who have sex weekly have higher levels of an immune system when fighting infections.
