5 Health Benefits Of Orgasms
The “big O”, “getting off”, the “grand finale” – we all have our own name for the beloved orgasm but no matter what you call her, we’re here to pull back the veil on this often bashfully discussed topic to tell you just how important orgasms can be to your overall health. That's right – orgasms aren't just a fun way to spend a Friday night. There are some serious health benefits to orgasming and these five might just surprise (& impress!) you.
1. Orgasms Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Feeling stressed or anxious? An orgasm may be just what the doctor ordered. When you climax, your brain releases a flood of feel-good chemicals like endorphins and oxytocin that can help reduce stress and anxiety and leave you feeling happy and relaxed. Stress? What Stress?
2. Orgasms Improve Heart Health
Who knew!? Climaxing also gives your heart some extra TLC. Studies have shown that orgasms can improve circulation and lower blood pressure, which can even help reduce the risk of heart disease. So, get your heart pumping for all the right reasons!
3. Orgasms Boost The Immune System
Need another excuse to have more sex when traveling or during flu season? We’re kinda joking but not really! When you orgasm, your body releases a hormone called DHEA which has been shown to strengthen the immune system. So go ahead and get it on wherever you are, it's good for your health!
4. Orgasms Relieve Pain
When you climax, your body releases endorphins (a.k.a. those feel-good chemicals) which are essentially natural painkillers. So if a headache, period cramps, or other painful woes are bringing you down, reach for your vibrator and Panty Dropper…and skip the other pain meds.
5. Orgasms Improve Sleep
Last but definitely not least, orgasms can help you get those good zzz’s. When you orgasm, your body releases a hormone called prolactin, which can help you feel relaxed and…you guessed it, sleepy. I’m sure you know the feeling after a good session under the sheets. This release (pun intended) can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, so that you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
So in case you needed one more reason (or five) to get busy, there you have it! From reducing stress and anxiety to improving heart health, boosting immunity, relieving pain, and improving sleep, orgasms are more than just a guilty pleasure. So go ahead, get freaky, and reap the health benefits of a good orgasm. Your body (and your partner) will thank you for it.
Need a little help “getting there”? Introducing a sensation serum like Panty Dropper is a great way to naturally enhance clitoral pleasure, intensify climax, boost blood flow and heighten your senses.
