5 Reasons to Have Sex Today!

  • 4 of 5


4. Sex decreases aging. “Use it or lose it” has never been more applicable. Regular sex releases a plethora of “happy” chemicals into your bloodstream, including testosterone. As we age, our testosterone levels decrease. Sex is a wonderful way to build your reserves back up, helping build new bones and muscles while putting a youthful glow on your face. According to a study by Dr. David Weeks, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Scotland and co-author of Superyoung, men and women who reported having sex an average of four times per week looked approximately 10 years younger than they really were.

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 ?? :)
