5 Reasons to Have Sex Today!

  • 2 of 5

2. Sex burns calories. Oh yeah, forget those fad diets and get busy gettin’ busy. A mere 30-minutes of sex burns 90 calories and while that may not sound impressive, at an average of three times a week, you’re burning 5 pounds in a year! Or, according to Forbes magazine, having sex just twice a week for a year will burn off the equivalent of seven huge spaghetti dinners. Seconds, anyone?

Yogic sciences declare that "Bhramcharya" (celibacy) is one of the top five principles to attain "samadhi" - Or Nirvana Or moksha. So Sure there is no doubt that sex has many wonderful benefits.

But a serious Yogic lifestyle (which includes Bhramcharya Or celibacy) is what can get people to experience the true sense of Oragsm - after the union with the universe which is considered the ultimate union. That is the ultimate goal in any case... so why bother with small time plays at all ?? :)
