29. Sex is good for a woman’s heart
A study indicates that women who enjoy a couple of lovemaking sessions each week stand a smaller chance of developing heart disease. That’s in comparison with their counterparts who have sex only once a month. While men didn’t form part of this study, it’s easy to predict that the results would be the same.
No one is quite sure why this is the case. We do know that raising one’s heart rate is good exercise for the heart. The heart is a powerful muscle that needs strength to pump blood through the body.
It’s likely the biweekly workout is just what the heart needs to keep it in top form. Once a month, it would appear, isn’t enough to make your heart stronger. A stronger heart works better and lasts longer. Such a heart is less prone to deterioration and disease.
If you’ve been looking for a good reason to hop between the sheets with your partner more regularly, do it for your heart. After all, you don’t want to have a heart attack, do you?
