Wondering if you will have to have a facelift sometime in the future to fight the effects of time? Well, the answer to anti-aging isn't surgery, it's sex. That is now a scientific fact. Could this be the cure for the sexless marriage?
It sounds like the ultimate motivation to me - having sex could keep you beautiful!?!? Even when you don't feel like it, just think about that benefit -- Staying hot for years longer than you thought possible. Researchers in England have found that older men and women that have an active sex life look five to seven years younger than other people their age. Basically, getting busy is not the fountain of youth. Amazing right?
How is this possible, you wonder? Well scientists say the endorphins released during sex are crucial to preserving your youth. It works by releasing human growth hormone, which can keep the skin elastic and consequently less likely to wrinkle. Another great perk? It can help burn fat and release a chemical that helps boos the immune system. Talk about great reason to have sex!
We've all made excuses at some point or another about why we can't or won't tonight. I'm too tired. I've had a long day. The kids drove me nuts and I'm too frazzled. Those who have been married a long time no that the frequency definitely drops off at some point. Many couples have to schedule alone time to make sure they even have sex. Well, imagine if having sex meant you could stay more radiant and more beautiful. I bet that would inspire millions of folks to get between the sheets.
Will you have more sex to stay young looking?
