This is for real: having sex will make you look younger. It may sound like wishful thinking, but having sex has health benefits that actually make you look better. So in case you didn't already have a good reason to be having sex, here are a few more.
Sex Will Make You Look Younger
Researchers have studied the correlation between youth and sex, and the more sex you have the younger you appear. Dr. David Weeks, the former head of old age psychology at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Britain, studied people who appeared 5 to 7 years younger than their age. The conclusion: they were having 50% more sex than their less youthful looking contemporaries.
Doing it for Your Health
Dr. Weeks concluded that the more sex you have, the more feel good chemical endorphins are released, leading to better sleep and less anxiety. This in turn results in reduced stress and a better overall completion.
Additionally, engaging in physical activity, like sex, improves your circulation and results in the release of human growth hormones that improve skin elasticity.
Having sex is only second to physical and mental activity for retaining youth. Regular sex (with a partner that make you feel secure and happy) is crucial for being healthy and looking good. This is not to say that if you're going solo you can't reap the benefits- masturbation also provides the same flood of endorphins that can keep you feeling and looking great. So whether solo or with a partner, go have some fun.
