It’s good for your health! Did you miss your workout or don’t have time for the gym? Well, you can make up for it in the bedroom. The act alone increases your heart rate and gets your blood flowing. The more vigorous and active you are, the better, as you could easily burn upwards of 200 calories. If you thought that was good news, another added bonus comes in the form of having shorter, lighter menstrual cycles with less intense cramping. According to Women’s Health, the increased number of uterine contractions during an orgasm helps to expel blood and tissue more quickly which ends your period faster!” It also helps lower blood pressure and is one of the top methods for relieving stress!
