Sex makes you beautiful. Its true, not just a cliché. But the question is why? Why does enjoyable, consensual sex make you even more beautiful?
When I was a teenager, I had the belief that one can only “get” sex if they were beautiful, or at least good-looking. This belief system guided my sex life, or lack of it well into my my thirties. If I had known that not only do regular-looking people have sex, but that sex makes you beautiful, who knows what would have happened? The possibilities would have been limitless.
It is clear that sex makes you beautiful and healthier. The reasons why are not always obvious, no matter how many “experts” claim otherwise. It is also clear that healthy sex makes you beautiful just because you are happier and connecting with another person. We know that connecting with other people is essential to our health and wellbeing. Besides, orgasms are so much fun!

10 Reasons Sex Makes You Beautiful
“Sex is the consummate beauty enhancer. It puts all other products and procedures to shame. Here are 10 reasons to incorporate orgasms into your beauty routine:
1. Sex makes you glow.
Your hair gets shinier and your skin becomes luminous. Estrogen, which contributes to healthier hair and skin, increases production in women who have frequent sex. You’ll also produce more collagen, which keeps skin supple and firm.
2. Youth is beauty and beauty is youth.
Frequent sex makes you look younger. While I’d argue that youth itself isn’t necessarily the heart of beauty, I’d say that “youth-full-ness” is. People who have sex three or more times a week look tend to look younger.
3. Orgasms are the ultimate antidepressant.
You release serotonin and DHEA at climax. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood and makes you feel content, happy and hopeful. DHEA has antidepressant effects and boosts immunity. Sex helps you to look and feel radiantly beautiful.
4. Orgasms and sexual activity release pheromones.
Pheromones make you more attractive to the opposite sex. The more sex you have, the more sex people want to have with you. Wear orgasms instead of perfume.
5. It’s natural breast enhancement.
Breasts swell up to 25% during sex, according to Dr. Michael Roizen, Dr. Oz’s pal. Nipple height increases one half inch. Have a big night out and are in need of a push-up bra? Spend another 20 minutes “getting ready” with your partner and then hit the town. Considering other methods of growth? Spend more time in bed instead.
6. Sex reduces stress.
A huge dose of oxytocin is released at the point of orgasm. Oxytocin wipes out cortisol, the major stress hormone. Most of us in urban life exist with high cortisol. Plenty of sex will unfurl your brow and leave you in a state of bliss.
7. Orgasms flatten your belly.
Having increased cortisol in your system contributes to that “paunch” around your belly. Again, our friend oxytocin lowers cortisol. Those last 5-10 pounds you can’t seem to lose around your belly? Orgasm them away.
8. You’ll become a better person.
All the feel-good chemicals released in the ascent to orgasm, at orgasm and in afterglow, elevate you. Dopamine increases your drive and ambition. Oxytocin makes you more relaxed, kind, patient and loving. Testosterone will make you perform better at work. Endorphins will reduce your stress and leave you feeling elated. What better all around panacea is there than an orgasm?
9. Sex improves overall well-being.
Sex isn’t just good for the belly, it’s good for your whole body. Your heart rate and blood pressure double, and a vigorous sex session can be the equivalent calorie burn of a strong power yoga class. Plus, orgasms induce the production of phenylethylamine. This brilliant compound increases happiness, confidence, focus AND curbs appetite.
10. It will ignite your confidence.
People who know what they want are attractive. Studies have shown that sex and meditation light up similar areas in the brain. The same benefits you’d expect to receive with meditation also come along with great sex: you feel in tune with yourself and the world around you, your inner guidance is strengthened, you feel calmer, more creative and able to tackle problems with a clear head.
All through an orgasm.
An orgasm a day, or at least several a week, not only can have miraculous health benefits, but it will also leave you smokin’ hot.”

SEX ADDS YEARS TO YOUR LIFE !
ACTIVE SEX LIFE
LACK OF INTIMACY AND BONDING
“The Flashing Images above are designed to provide a “Mental Image” of what takes place when your brain’s Pleasure Pathway is stimulated by activities associated with feeling good. Science now believes positive stimulation of your built in reward system can add many quality years to your life. Few activities stimulate our pleasure pathway more than Sexual Intercourse………..
Science has concluded our Pleasure Pathway plays a much greater role in our lives than just the survival of the species. It is now believed this Reward System has to be sufficiently stimulated as often as daily, if we are to feel, function and perform to our maximum potential. We don’t have to become “Thrill Seekers” to stimulate our Reward System. Even the wise use of the basic necessities of life, such as eating, drinking and physical exercise stimulate our “Pleasure Pathway.” But staying sexually active has its own set of rewards because you receive so many benefits from one activity. According to recent studies frequent orgasms, at least 100 per year, can increase Life Expectancy by 3 to 8 years.
Regular sexual activity is so beneficial to our health it is amazing how seldom it is discussed within this context. It lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol, and increases circulation. It raises the heartbeat from 70 to 150 beats per minute. Some studies have found that people who indulge in regular sex are half as likely to have heart attacks and strokes than those who don’t have sex at all. Every muscle in the body is worked and toned during sex, particularly the pelvis, buttocks, stomach and arms. Thirty minutes of sex can burn as many as 200 calories. There is substantial evidence it reduces food cravings, helps control your appetite and assists your body in absorbing the nutrients from food more easily. It boosts immunity, aids in tissue repair, increases cognition, reduces stress, improves sleep, promotes strong bones and one study found that regular orgasms even dramatically reduces the incidence of the common cold.
The intimacy and bonding you receive from remaining sexually active are more vital to your long term health than most people think. If you want to live a long and healthy life your biggest enemies are loneliness and boredom. Touch is necessary for all mammals to thrive, babies and animals that are deprived of physical touch rarely develop normally. Frequent touching is one way we enhance each others self esteem and nothing will help you live longer than a strong and vital sense of self worth.”

Enjoy Sex, Live Longer
“Research has linked regular, pleasurable sex to multiple health benefits, including:
- Pain relief. Women report in numerous studies that sexual activity helps with relief of chronic pain, such as back pain and headaches, and that they have a higher threshold of pain when they engage in sex regularly. One reason is the increase of the feel-good endorphin hormones, the body’s natural painkiller, brought on by sexual arousal and orgasm.
- Fighting flu and colds. Sex also increases your levels of immunoglobulin A (lgA), the cell protein that fights viral infections and helps you ward off colds and flu. A study of Pennsylvania college students showed that those who engaged in sexual activity once or twice a week had 30 percent higher levels of lgA than students who were abstinent.” By Cleveland Clinic Wellness/360-5.com
SEX May Make ProstaTe CANCER LESS LIKELY
“Going for the gusto may help ward off prostate cancer.
Men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer during one study, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
You don’t need a partner to reap this benefit: Sexual intercourse, nocturnal emission, and masturbation were all part of the equation.
It’s not clear that sex was the only reason that mattered in that study. Lots of factors affect cancer risk. But more sex won’t hurt.” Except The perks of sex extend well beyond the bedroom.” By Kara Mayer Robinson Reviewed by Michael W. Smith, MD WebMD Feature
