Hey all, I get a daily newsletter from http://www.healthybitchdaily.com/. It is part of the Skinny bisque enterprise. Yes I know how some of you feel about the Skinny bisque girls. But I thought I would share this one, because it makes total sense and I dig it. This newsletter is geared towards women, but I am not posting for those reasons. I just thought it was interesting information for everyone to know about.


Quote:
Let's talk about sex, baby.

More specifically, let's chat about the grand finale, girl to girl, mano-a-vag-O. You know, the part some guys race to faster than TMZ can post a celebrity sex tape. It's like you're not even there ...

"O" Yes

Just in case you thought orgasms had no lasting benefits beyond putting you to sleep, think again. It turns out that there is mounting evidence—pun intended—that orgasms have more than a few health benefits that will last longer than the Big O itself.

What Can "O" Do For You?

Let’s get men out of the way first. You may have heard them reference their biological need to alleviate DSB (Deadly Sperm Blockage). While many of us thought this was just a pathetic story to get us to put out, for the record, men who have more orgasms have a reduced risk of prostate cancer and longer lifespan.

Good for them. But what about us?

Before we get to the good stuff, let us remind you that we're not saying you should go on a Samantha-style bender, with whomever or whatever you can find. The health benefits listed below accrue most effectively for those in healthy, monogamous relationships—as well as parties of one.

Bust a Mood

Orgasms release endorphins and even more importantly, oxytocin, which causes that euphoric, satisfied feeling you get afterwards. These hormones literally lift your mood and in turn, fight depression.

Our sex expert, Lou Paget, author of the book The Big O says that oxytocin is released from the nerve cells in the hypothalmus into the bloodstream, which has been shown to result in a reduction of stress for 39 percent of women who report masturbating for relaxation. Oxytocin is also the bonding neurohormone that creates the powerful connection with a great lover, leading to a feeling of stability and connectedness.

Another perk: Oxytocin is also released through snuggling and close body contact with someone you love. Now, if only you could remember that when he leaves his wet towel on the bed ...

Sleep it off. The release of oxytocin and endorphins during sex acts as a natural tranquilizer and contributes to the urge to drift off to sleep post-O, even for those who struggle with insomnia.

Heart yourself. All that activity leading up to an orgasm increases breathing and heart rate, and releases a whole host of heart and circulatory builders via hormones like adrenaline, noradrenaline, prolactin, DHEA, and testosterone—all of which have valuable cardio-protective effects. Once orgasm is achieved, oxytocin is released, which lowers blood pressure.

Increase your orgasms, lose weight. Orgasms can help you drop pounds by releasing phenetylamine—a chemical that is known to curb appetite—and seratonin, which has a calming effect on cravings for junk food.

Fight pain. The magic of endorphins and the release of corticosteroids can decrease the sensation of pain, providing short-term relief for menstrual cramps, migraines, back pain or arthritis. So next time you have a headache, try seducing your man instead of asking him to run out and buy you some aspirin. You’ll both feel better.

I'm offended by the heteronormative slut-shaming language, not that I'm surprised considering the source, but I'll say cheers to more orgasms!

Agreed on all counts.

I'm offended by all of the above. I'm going to continue doing whichever consenting guys I like. I also don't require health benefits as an excuse. Also note: If I have a migraine, I'm probably also bleeding profusely. Ibuprofen works for heavy bleeding; magical penis does not.

I am offended by both of these as well. How are orgasms of less cardiovascular benefit because you're having them with a casual, as opposed to monogamous, partner?

I too like to get men out of the way first. forking men, in the way. Get out of my way. Why are you in my way??

I think this is funnier if reading the 'Big O' as Oreos. "O" yes, wink wink tee hee.

oreos definitely release endorphins. and i would definitely shove a man out of the way to get to them.

if you're having sex to lose weight, you should seriously consider what's up. orgasm because it's god damn awesome and you feel like having sex, not because it has health benefits. and it's no one else's business whether it's in a monogamous relationship, on a sex binge ala Samantha or because you're masturbating.

i feel like people should have sex because they want to have sex. and that should really be the only reason.

I would think the chocolate and sugar in Oreos would make you wide awake.

I always eat Oreos because I want to, not because I feel pressured by the men who won't get out of the damn way or society.
