The 'Was it good for you?' Infographic uses a double entendre title to cheekily inform us of the health benefits of sex. The infographic offers a benefit for each body part – from your brain to your heart to your hands – yes, you’re hands. For instance, sex lowers blood pressure and stress, decreases your risk for breast cancer, and boosts the bodies Oxytocin’s level (which are responsible for increased generosity between people who are emotionally engaged with one another.)
Sex is an activity that not only feels great in the moment, but also has long-lasting health benefits. You can rest easy after knowing that you’ve burned some calories, reduced your risk for obesity and heart disease, and kept yourself looking young. And don’t let your migraine discourage you – sex releases endorphins, which can help combat your headache.
