1.Even just thinking about sex Improves your cognitive abilities. Dutch researcher Jens Förster found that the release offered by sexual gratification can promote brain growth. Even those who just had sex on their mind performed better on critical thinking exercises. Princeton University research also has showed that sex can stimulate the brain.

3) Sex stimulates the immune system. Wilkes University researchers in Pennsylvania found that those who have sex once or twice a week enjoy greater levels of an antibody named immunoglobulin A (IgA) than those who have sex less often. So the next time you feel a cold coming on? Have sex.

4) Sex reduces heart disease. Research shows that men who have sex at least twice a week can cut their risk of heart disease in half.

5) Sex offers pain relief. Not only do studies show that sex can reduce headache pain, but Dr. George E. Erlich, an arthritis specialist in Philadelphia, found that 70 percent of arthritis sufferers reported less arthritis pain after sex. Sexual arousal stimulates the adrenal glands to produce more cortisone, which reduces the inflammation that causes pain in joints.

The love making being discussed here is strictly for married lovers while the singles can read and learn how to improve their love life’s after marriage!
