Yes, besides being enjoyable, sex is good for your physical and mental health – say the researchers. We are all probably aware that sex sessions are capable of burning a few calories but the extent to which a healthy sex life can have on your overall health and well-being is actually quite impressive.

When we look at the science behind this research we can see that a lot of beneficial hormones are released during or after sex, for example, endorphins and oxytocin are released during sex, and these feel-good hormones activate pleasure centres in the brain that create feelings of intimacy and relaxation. Furthermore, after sex, the relaxation-inducing hormone prolactin is released, which can help people to nod off more quickly.
