Your immune system suffers
Seems like having sex provides some key benefits to our health, but when we’re not rolling around in the sheets with our partner, are we actually more susceptible to illness? Apparently we are. According to the Mayo Clinic, each time a man or woman is aroused the DHEA, or Dehydroepiandrosterone, hormone is released. This hormone gives your immune system a bit of a boost, helping your body to fight against bacteria, viruses, and other pretty nasty germs. No orgasm, no benefits however, so better put your guy or gal to work if you’re lucky enough to be having regular sex.
