We exercise to help our bodies look their best on the outside. But regular physical activity is also important for proper circulation and function of everything on the inside. If you want to experience exceptional bedroom calisthenics, practice increasing your daily activity and move your body. It will get you ready for a dazzling horizontal lambada in more ways than you’d expect. That’s the fact that exercise can promote sexual health is step #9 in the 10 Steps to Sexy.
The link between exercise and sexual satisfaction
Aerobic activity revs up hormones while reducing stress. This is going to help keep you in prime condition. In fact, a study by the University of California on sedentary men demonstrated that around three hours of exercise per week offered improved sexual function. Other studies on both men and women have demonstrated greater sexual activity among those who engage in regular physical activity. One study on the impact of exercise on women discovered that increased physical activity even led to greater sexual satisfaction.
Physical activity is especially important for men
Regular activity is also proven to reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction. Because exercise opens up the arteries and helps blood flow to the heart, it’s also helping blood flow to the sexual organs. It may be a benefit you ever thought of when you got your heart thumping but if your heart is throbbing, so are your loins! The benefits of exercise not only extend to sexual pleasure but also improve fertility. A British study in 2017 demonstrated that men who engaged in moderate, physical activity, (15 hours per week), had greater sperm counts than their sedentary counterparts.
We’re not suggesting that you have to join a gym. But take an honest look at your daily movement and take measures to move your body every day. You won’t just feel better at the end of the day, you’ll feel better in bed.
