My prescription: sex!

Few days ago, I got this email from my doctors, in response to one our my previous complain related to sex problems.

Hell Chanel,

I understand your frustration, and I must say that a romp in the sack can improve short-term brain function and long-term psychological health, thanks to the release of pleasure hormones, say British researchers. And I also want you to rest assure that the benefits don’t stop there. Having sex with Jason twice a week will:

  • Bolster your immune system

You may also experience a spike in immunoglobulin A, an antibody that can fight off respiratory and stomach infections.

  • Cut your prostate cancer risk.

The more you ejaculate, the more carcinogens you’ll flush out of your sex gland, say Australian researchers.
Halve your risk of fatal heart attack

Having sex twice per week will also causes a surge in testosterone, a hormone that helps protect both hearts from stress.

  • Sex twice per week will ignite your fat burners

During a passionate bout of sex, you’ll both use 143 muscles and torch as many kilojoules as during a 15-minute jog.

  • De-stress your mind

After orgasm, your body releases oxytocin, a hormone that acts as a natural anti-anxiety drug.

You like sex with the lights on. She prefers the dark. Can you compromise?

It’s a common story. Compromise with strategic lighting. Here are some ideas from Mouithsone Magazine, an award-winning love and relationships magazine.

Use lamplight

It’s not as harsh as overhead lighting and makes naked skin look better.

Light a candle

…or put that lamp behind an irregular object, like a plant. You’ll create oddly shaped shadows, making the lighting unthreatening and part of the fun.
Use a lowwatt, amber-hued bulb

“Amber neutralises the blues of blemishes and tired eyes, and gives skin a warm, soft, creamy look,” says Royalle.
