Exercise Makes You Feel Sexy
A big part of s*x is feeling sexy. People who exercise have an improved body image over people who do not exercise.
Being more comfortable with your body leads to better and more relaxed s*x. A study showed that more physically fit men and women rated their own s*xual desirability higher than less active men and women the same age. Eighty percent of men and 60% of females who exercised two to three times weekly rated their own s*xual desirability as above average. As the number of days of exercise per week increased, so did the ratings of s*xual desirability.
Exercise Improves s*xual Performance
Another study showed that men and women who were more physically fit rated their own s*xual performance higher. Among people who exercised four to five days per week, 88% of the women and 69% of the men reported their own s*xual performance as above average or much above average. The reason for this could simply be an increase in confidence because of an improved body image, or a physiological reason (such as better circulation and blood flow).
Exercise Means More s*x
People who exercise more have more s*x. The reason for this is complicated. People who exercise more are generally healthier, younger and have more attractive bodies than the non-exercisers. Frequent exercisers may also be more physically-oriented people who seek out activities and sensations.
Whatever the case, research does show that the more a person exercises, the more s*x he or she tends to have.
Exercise Helps s*xual Aging
Sixty-year-olds who exercise frequently report having the same amount of s*x and s*xual pleasure as people decades younger. One study examined the s*xual frequency and satisfaction ratings of swimmers aged 60 and found that they were the same as those 20 years younger. If you exercise a lot, your “s*xual age” will be years younger than your chronological age.
Reduces Erectile Dysfunction
There is a saying in the erectile dysfunction world that “man-hood health is heart health.” Erectile dysfunction is often caused . circulatory problems. In order to have an erection, the man-hood must swell with blood. Blocked arteries, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular issues can interfere with that process. Exercise keeps the heart and arteries healthy, reducing the risk of erectile dysfunction. Researchers looked at men over the age of 50 and found that those who were physically active reported better erections and a 30% lower risk of impotence than men who were inactive.
Exercise releases endorphins that give a feeling of pleasure. The classic “runner’s high” is an example.
In a “runner’s high,” a seasoned runner may experience a feeling of bliss and contentment during exercise caused . a release of endorphins. Your s*x drive and feelings of s*xual pleasure also use an endorphin release system. Each time you exercise (or have s*x), your body releases these endorphins. The more frequent and intense the releases, the easier it is for s*xual arousal and pleasure in the future. In fact, studies have shown that women who frequently exercise become aroused more quickly and are able to reach an climax faster and more intensely.
Exercise Adds Options
If you are physically fit, you may have more options for s*x.
s*x itself is an intense physical activity requiring strength and endurance. As you exercise, both your strength and endurance will increase, opening the possibility for more varied s*xual positions that require greater physical control.
The Bottom Line
If better health isn’t enough motivation to get you to the gym or out for a run, maybe better s*x will be. Use the information > to inspire yourself to increase your fitness and just watch what may happen to your s*x life.
