We know that moderate sport, combined with a caloric deficit, will make us lose weight. It’s no use killing yourself in the gym and then eating seven donuts when you get home and a bag of chips with ham, but if we combine a healthy diet with exercise and there is a difference between what is consumed and what is spent, we will lose weight.
Research from the University of California collected in the book by James White and Peter Kent The best sex of your life, came to the conclusion that lPeople who practiced some type of cardiovascular sport had up to 30% more sexual intercourse than those who did not exercise. And what’s more, they managed to reach orgasm 26% more times.
Don’t think we’re talking about a one-hour spinning class where you sweat as if every drop of water in your body was going to escape through your skin. We talk about cardio as moderate physical activity: skating, swimming, running, cycling, walking fast, doing an elliptical… Nothing excessive, but very effective judging by the study.
Why cardio improves your sex life
Sex is also physical activity. In fact we found postures with which we burn almost as many calories as in a pilates class. It is true that sex is not a substitute for the gym, but as in any physical activity, our body is going to exercise. Our muscle strength and endurance is compromised during sex, especially the abdominal and lower back area. If we do cardio, the core area is also strengthened and when we later have sex, our resistance will be greater.
We will last longer in different positions and we will get less tired. In fact, at a cardiovascular level, a healthy heart helps in sex in this regard. Breathing control will make it easier for us to maintain the rhythm and prolong the effort as explained by the sports experts from Vitónicaachieving sexual relations that last longer and are more pleasant.
In the words of the sexologist Mamen Jiménez, “during physical exercise we secrete endorphins, increases the production of testosterone and makes us stay in good physical shape”. And also, doing sports is a way to increase sexual desire because increases our self-esteem. We look better, more agile, and even prettier and that translates into an increase in the desire for sex.
Let us also think that doing moderate cardio helps performance in bed, increases stamina and makes us have more pleasure because A well-toned pelvic floor will always give us more powerful orgasms, according to experts..
Perhaps practicing sports is not the panacea to have more sex, but it can greatly improve our sexual life. Science word.
