Don’t blush—because it's time to get busy. A slew of studies suggest that having sex offers distinct health benefits.
1) Anxiety management
Researchers from the University of the West of Scotland found that sexually active men and women had significantly lower blood pressure when faced with stressful situations such as public speaking.
2) Migraine relief
A study published in the journal Cephalalgia found that sex might benefit those with intense headaches. Out of about 100 people who suffered from migraines, 60 percent reported that their pain levels improved after having sex with their partner.
3) Improved immunity
In a study involving 112 people, those who had sex one to two times per week had significantly higher saliva levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA), antibodies that fight bacteria, viruses, and toxins.
