Here’s why you need to have an orgasm

Yeah, it’s pleasurable, alright! But orgasms are needed for more than just reaching the climax of your bedroom actions. Here are a few benefits of orgasms you didn’t know about.

Honestly, the fact that orgasm is a climax alone should be able to convince you to have one today. But if you’re not convinced, there’s a list of reasons that’ll make you believe in them. Orgasms are an essential part of any physical intimacy routine, Glamour spoke to Nan Wise, a certified sex therapist, and neuroscientist. Wise said:

The brain manufactures and releases substances called neurotransmitters and neuropeptides during sexual stimulation and orgasm. These substances are wonderful for your overall physical and emotional wellbeing.

Bye bye breakouts

Who knew this was even possible? However, orgasms release oxytocin and decrease cortisol in your body. So, if you’re experiencing regular orgasms, you’re less likely to break out. It also gives you a radiant flush as it increases blood and oxygen flow to your face.

Better Sleep

Good sex = good sleep! One of the most incredible benefits of having orgasms is that it helps you sleep better and soundly. Prolactin hormones rush into our body post sex and it helps us sleep quicker and the release of oxytocin and vasopressin during orgasm facilitates deep sleep.

Brain Workout

Brain workout is as essential as a physical workout and orgasms do the trick for you in this case. Wise studied the effects of orgasm on the brain and the results are exceptional. Wise confirmed:

We found that orgasm increased blood flow to so many brain regions, that the brain lit up like a Christmas tree. Increased blood flow means that the brain is getting a wonderful and nutritious workout.

Other body benefits

The list of benefits of orgasms seems to be never-ending, but here’s a try:

  • The improvement in brain circulation promotes healthier hair.
