Answer: HELL YEAH!!
Here’s how …
Exercising does facilitate a huge boost in the sex life and drive on psychological and physiological levels.
For those of us doing it right, sex is an intense physical activity that requires strength and endurance. Exercising increase both of these while allowing for greater flexibility and an increase blood flow to the genital areas for both men and women. The increase in blow flow to these areas allows for an overall feeling of increased arousal and can help with erectile dysfunction (for men). Those who exercise see an increase in the frequency of sex, orgasms and sexual function. Women who exercise are more quickly aroused and can experience orgasm faster and with more intensity.
Exercise also releases more testosterone in the body for both sexes. In men, this causes and increase in sexual urges, better bone density, increase mass and strength and more frequent erections!!!!! In women, this causes a heightened sexual arousal, a boost in energy, stronger bone and muscle density and more frequent sex!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I had to include all of those exclamation marks. Testosterone also serves other functions such as reducing fatigue and depression, two things that go against sex.
We also get a surge of adrenaline and endorphin when we exercise. These chemicals give a feeling of pleasure, increase sexual arousal and orgasm in women and reduce stress.
For those who feel uncomfortable with their bodies, exercise allows for a better sexier you, which ultimately allows for more confidence and an overall feeling of being sexy. As we know, a big part of sex is about that feeling - how sexy we feel about ourselves. A sexier leaner body allows us to be more comfortable which, of course, leads to better and more relaxed sex.
So with all the other obvious health benefits of exercise, aren’t you happy that sex is included on that list?
Eat. Workout. Be awesome. - Then … have sex!
