Hair eRazor explains Have Sex and Lose Weight

sexy costumes for halloween costume partiesI know you may find this headline hard to believe, but it’s been proven, sex burns a lot of calories and makes you lose weight.  Scientists from the University of Quebec ran a study to see how many calories were burned during sex.  Twenty one couples were asked to have sex once a week, and to not change their sexual routine in any way.  Results showed,  Men burned 4.1 calories per minute, and women burned 3.1 calories per minute.  This is equal to the same number of calories burned while cycling, using a treadmill, or playing doubles tennis.  The participants said their relationships were stronger, and they felt way better after sex, than when going to the gym!  Now turn your love making sessions into marathons!  Add the Hair eRazor to groom each other, our Sinsational Lube for body to body massages or try a new position that works a different muscle group, and watch the pounds and inches come off!  And sex has other health benefits, too.

1. Helps Keep Your Immune System Humming

“Sexually active people take fewer sick days,” says Yvonne K. Fulbright, PhD a sexual health expert.

People who have sex have higher levels of what defends your body against germs, viruses, and other intruders. Researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania found that college students who had sex once or twice a week had higher levels of the a certain antibody compared to students who had sex less often.

You should still do all the other things that make your immune system happy, such as:

  • Eat right.
  • Stay active.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Keep up with your vaccinations.
  • Use a condom if you don’t know both of your STD statuses.

2. Boosts Your Libido

Longing for a more lively sex life? “Having sex will make sex better and will improve your libido,” says Lauren Streicher, MD. She is an assistant clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.

For women, having sex ups vaginal lubrication, blood flow, and elasticity, she says, all of which make sex feel better and help you crave more of it.

3. Improves Women’s Bladder Control

A strong pelvic floor is important for avoiding incontinence, something that will affect about 30% of women at some point in their lives.

Good sex is like a workout for your pelvic floor muscles. When you have an orgasm, it causes contractions in those muscles, which strengthens them.

4. Lowers Your Blood Pressure

Research suggests a link between sex and lower blood pressure, says Joseph J. Pinzone, MD. He is CEO and medical director of Amai Wellness.

“There have been many studies,” he says. “One landmark study found that sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure.” That’s the first number on your blood pressure test.

5. Counts as ExerciseIt won’t replace the treadmill, but it counts for something.

Sex uses about five calories per minute. It gives you a one-two punch: It bumps up your heart rate and uses various muscles.

So get busy! You may even want to clear your schedule to make time for it on a regular basis.  “Like with exercise, consistency helps maximize the benefits,” Pinzone says.
