When was the last time you were in a doctor’s office, and you were recommended a healthy dose of orgasms? In fact, you can ever recall a time when you received such a prescription?
No, didn’t think so. Instead, we are provided with rather contrasting guidance.
Bad headache? Take an aspirin. Struggling to drift off at night? Take a sleeping pill, perhaps combined with some pain relief for the tension you’re feeling in your neck. Tricky digestive system? Grab some more pills. And then a few more, if the first few don’t work.
But what if we could overcome these mild yet persistent health ailments with something far more natural - something we didn’t have to pay for, and that we have unlimited access to at any time of the day or night?
The wonder tonic I am describing here, is the orgasm. As simple and incredible as it may seem, female sexual organs may hold more medicinal magic than we might have realized.
Despite it being a far more discussed topic socially now, amazingly the female orgasm is still somewhat of a taboo subject in most medical consultation rooms. As this article will share with you, this is particularly frustrating considering the proven health benefits this simple, natural function can provide.
Kelley Kitely, a women’s wellbeing expert, shares that she refers to the female orgasm being “a natural function as vital to our daily health, as brushing our teeth and staying hydrated.” She believes it should be as integral to our daily routine and for very good reason.
Here are the 5 health benefits of the female orgasm that you need to know about;
Increase your libido. In a world where stress is the number one cause of lowered libido, masturbation can make a very real difference to those suffering from the loss of interest to sex. Described as the ‘feed forward’ mechanism, experts have discovered that people who sexually stimulates themselves more regularly can create a higher sexual appetite for themselves through touch and play.
Have a healthy heart. Get that cardio in! Depending on the style and mode of your sexual stimulation activities you can get your heart going and any activity that works the heart muscle is a very good thing indeed. Even if you choose to just lay back and let it happen with some visual stimulation and the help of some toys, the rise of your heart rate from the orgasm alone is still very beneficial to your overall well-being. Beats the gym, right?
Work that pelvic floor! For the mamas out there, you’ll be very acquainted with the drawbacks of a weak pelvic floor. But for all women, working those muscles are vital to bladder control and pelvic muscle health. Oh, and did you know that your orgasms could be stronger if these tiny muscles gain in strength? Well, that’s enough reason in itself…
Regulate your menstrual cycle. Get your flow benefits. Regular orgasms translate to more regular menstrual cycles, according to research studies. This can be a huge help for those that struggle with irregular cycles or other problems with their cycle. Added to which the pain-relieving benefits of orgasms and the release of endorphins can be a girl’s best friend during her special time of the month. What’s not to love?
Sex Toy’s can be a great training buddy. Internal toys such as dildos increase blood flow to the vagina during stimulation, and have the added benefit of helping the internal muscles to expand and maintain elasticity. Just another reason to add some new toys to the box…
Build up your confidence. For anyone that’s currently on the modern dating scene, you may know the nerve wrecking moments pre-meet up into your first date. Why not release some tension and give yourself a natural, organic boost ahead before heading out? Giving yourself an orgasm can be a fantastic boost to your confidence and you’ll feel like a boss! Give it a try, it might surprise you how much an orgasm can contribute to positive mental health.
Give yourself some brain food. If you’re sick of Sudoko but conscious of your brain health, allow your South to aide your North (as it were) and join the many women who are turning to having orgasms for the benefits of their cognition. Studies have found in recent years that cognitive tests done on women who had regularly been having orgasms, their memories and verbal fluencies had improved even a modest benefit to memory recall. Which means you’ll be able to reminisce on the best orgasms of your life with all the more detail!
Gentlemen, if you have read this far, you may be applauded. Well done for taking such interest in the female experience. Perhaps for the benefit of your current partner, or with a curiosity for the women you have sexual experiences with as a whole. For whatever reason, you’re very welcome here. And the women in your life will certainly thank you also!
Ladies, here’s the thing. There’s a lot going on in the world right now. Perhaps your own world is a little hectic also. But above all, your health and wellbeing is extremely important and shouldn’t be forgotten. And when your route to better mental and physical fitness is found in the joys of the orgasm - what’s not to love?
Enjoy your orgasms as much as you enjoy life, and the rest will take care of itself. What better motto, for your week ahead?
Happy orgasming, ladies! Strictly for the medical benefits, of course…
