However, here is a caveat. Bad sex can give you more reasons to worry. "Those who are not happy with
their performance end up with more stress than before," says Dr Prakash Kothari, founder advisor to
World Association for Sexual Health. The best way in this scenario is to just enjoy lying with your loved
one in the uninhibited state and share some sweet nothings.
AVOID PROSTATE ISSUES

PROBLEMS related to prostate are one of the few disorders specific to male species. From prostate
cancer to enlargement of the gland, the problems are not only tough to diagnose but also difficult to treat.
However, studies show indulgence in regular sex can help ward off these problems.
According to a research published in the British Journal of Urology International, frequent ejaculations,
especially in 20- something men, may reduce the risk of prostate cancer later in life. Another study
reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that frequent ejaculations, 21 or more a
month, were linked to lower prostate cancer risk in older men, as well.
The risk of prostate gland enlargement also reduces for men who go for regular sex. "Sexual act has been
shown to be a good way to prevent enlargement of prostate gland because with regular ejaculation of
semen, the congested blood and infection are also washed out. Masturbation helps in a similar manner
because it also involves ejaculation of the semen," says Dr Kothari.

RELIEVES PAIN
IF YOU think sex is painful, this one might come as a
surprise.
Experts say sex actually relieves pain from problems
like migraine and even arthritis. Immediately before you
reach orgasm, level of hormone oxytocin rises by five
times resulting in release of endorphins.
Endorphins are chemicals which relieve pain with no
side effects.

Those having migraine attacks can also get comfort


because pressure in the brain's blood vessels is
lowered when you complete the sexual act.
For women, regular sex increases estrogen production and lessens the symptoms of premenstrual
syndrome. "If a woman has pain, discomfort or backache during their menses, sex can be helpful because
congestion of blood is reduced. Among women who experience orgasm, pain or discomfort reduces by
half," says Dr Kothari.
So now whenever your woman feigns a headache to avoid intimacy, tell her that it is a good enough
reason to have sex.
USE IT OR LOSE IT

ANOTHER good reason to have regular sex is to maintain the optimum balance of sex hormones in the
body. "Sexual activity and hormones are interlinked. While hormones are required to maintain a good sex
life, abstinence can lead to fall in their optimal levels. These hormones are also essential to maintain a
healthy body. It has been unequivocally established that people with lower levels of testosterone tend to
suffer from depression and poor muscle mass. They are also at greater risk of memory loss and
osteoporosis," says Dr Wadia.
In women, sex hormone estrogen offers protection against heart disease and in the long run, it can be
beneficial against Alzheimer's disease and osteoporosis.
If all these benefits fail to convince you still, here’s the deal breaker: A 10- year research carried on 1,000
middle- aged men at Queens University in Ireland showed that sex on a regular basis increases the human
lifespan.
For the same age and health, those who had orgasms more frequently had half the death rate of men who
did not have such frequent orgasms.
This could be due to the culminating effects of stress reduction, protection against heart attack and
prostate cancer besides benefits in face of osteoporosis.
Frequent ejaculations, especially in 20-something men may reduce the risk of prostate cancer and
enlargement of prostate gland later in life.
