Do you know what day it is? It’s everyone’s favorite holiday. Today is *drum roll please* National Orgasm Day.
It’s time to get in the holiday spirit folks, and really there is only one way to celebrate. Well, multiple ways, but they will all (hopefully) lead to the same happy ending. And if you are thinking to yourself, “But I am so busy…I don’t have time for this”, we have nice reasons why you should push a few things around to participate in the orgasmic festivities.
It turns out that orgasms have lots of added benefits, besides putting you in a good mood. If you need more convincing, please read on:
1. You will have a better night’s rest
If you have trouble getting a good night’s sleep, an orgasm can help. When you orgasm your body releases endorphins that are shown to have a sedative effect. What a great way to unwind.
2. They boost your immune system
Research has shown that sex and orgasms are a great way to combat the common cold due to the rise of antibodies. Forget about apples, an orgasm a day….
3. Orgasms relieve stress
This should be kind of obvious. Orgasms cause you to release oxytocin which improves your mood and makes you happy. Plus, you release tension. A more fun alternative to yoga?
4. They boost your self-esteem
Of course having one orgasm won’t solve all your confidence issues, but studies have show that regular orgasms increase young people’s self-esteem.
5. They burn calories
Orgasms can burn anywhere from 60 to 100 calories. And if your orgasms are a result of really intense, sweaty sex, you probably can skip cardio all together.
6. They help clear your skin
There are many ways sex and orgasms can improve your skin’s overall look and feel. One major way is by reducing your hormone levels which aids clear skin. And if stress is causing your breakouts please refer back to number three.
7. They help you focus
Ok, sure there are scientific reasons that support this but also it is kind of common sense. If you are distracted thinking about sex, allowing yourself to scratch that itch will help your mind move on and get back to work.
8. You just might live longer
Multiple studies have shown that frequent orgasms lead to longer lives. Consider the above benefits to orgasms, almost all of these things make you healthier. Additionally, sex gets your heart rate up, which improves blood pressure. So while you are working to achieve orgasm, you are also working at lowering your chances of heart disease. Look at you, multi-tasking.
9. Orgasms are a great time and you deserve it
Simple as that. You work hard, treat yourself.
Now if only we had the day off from work to celebrate…
