Need extra motivation in sticking to that better body New Year’s resolution? Just consider all of the sexual benefits that come from regular, moderate exercise. In striving for 30 to 60 minutes per day of bike riding, roller blading, yoga, swimming, jogging… you can realize any of these libido boosters that make for better sex:
Improved blood flow
Both guys and gals experience better blood flow to the genitals since exercise enhances your arteries’ ability to dilate. This means more natural lubrication for her and bigger, firmer, more reliable erections for him.
More effective weight control
Sexercise helps you to burn more calories, enabling you to slim down while shaping up. Losing weight can have you feeling sexier and more attractive, acting as an aphrodisiac with the energy you’re putting out there. Warning: You could attract more potential partners! Better yet, you could be even more interested in sex!
Better heart health
Exercise contributes to cholesterol control, changing its mix to fewer low-density lipoproteins (LDL), aka bad cholesterol and more high-density lipoproteins (HDL), the good cholesterol. The result: fewer deposits in your pudendal arteries, which make for better blood flow during sexual arousal.
Regular, moderate exercise can increase libido in both men and women in boosting testosterone, the hormone that fuels your sex drive.
What better way to have the energy for sex than to get some zzzz’s than a good snooze? Exercise is one of the best natural sleep promoters around, helping you to get the shut eye you need for much more stimulating waking hours.
Exercise can be as beneficial as medication when it comes to countering mild to moderate depression. So take on this sex killer in capitalizing on the smile-inducing effects of aerobic exercise.
In releasing endorphins, your body’s mood-elevating compounds, exercise acts as a major stress reliever. With stress a major cause of sexual problems, countering stress can have you more relaxed for sex and more readily bouncing back when stress has you stressed out.
Easier menstrual cycles
Being physically active reduces symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome and menstruation, like cramping. The endorphins released during physical activity also decrease the discomforts of menopause.
Last, but certainly not least, having stronger pelvic floor muscles, in particular, can have you experiencing more pleasure during climax. With orgasm largely fueled by PC (pubbococcygeus) muscle contractions, a stronger PC makes for a more forceful contraction, making your orgasms more intense.
