Reaching orgasm releases oxytocin, a powerful hormone known to lower cortisol concentrations which counteract anxiety and depression. Take your mind away from daily pressures and focus on a sexy fantasy and enjoy some escapism.
Revel in the feel-good hormones throughout the day and let you mind wander back to your morning antics.
YOU’LL LOOK AS GOOD AS YOU FEEL
Ditch the shiny hair and complexion pills and reach for the lube. Heard of post coital glow? This is down to the increase in DHEA levels in the body and that magic oxytocin. Those fantastic feel-good hormones also lower inflammation and spots; plus the increase in blood flow increases the level of water transferred to your skin, making your hair gorgeous and glowy!
Squeeze in a morning session and reap the rewards during your day.
In the evening
After a long day at the office, sex may not be top of your to-do list but by making the time for an evening encounter, you can reap many rewards.
IT HELPS YOU TO DE-STRESS
