5 Reasons to Have Sex Today!

5. Sex is great for depression. “The release from orgasm does much to calm people. It helps with sleep, and that is whether we talk about solo sex or sex with a partner,” says Jennifer Bass, the head of information services at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction in Bloomington, Ind., in a recent MSNBC article. Researchers believe that sex helps the brain produce serotonin which, in turn, prompts new neurons to grow. Most chemical, antidepressant medications, like Zoloft, work to increase serotonin levels. These drugs take three to four weeks to begin working–about the same amount of time required for new neurons to form. One reason these drugs could be an effective treatment is because they increase cell growth–just as sex does.

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 ?? :)
