  • Having sex gives your pelvic floor a workout.
  • It’s good for your heart, reducing your risk of having a fatal heart attack.
  • It releases a hormone that helps balance your immune system.
  • Sexual activity improves blood flow, leaving your skin glowing.
  • An enthusiastic session can burn up to 1000 kilojoules.
