If you’re eating well and exercising regularly, it’s now time to scale a brand new level of health by indulging in a bit of self-love. We reveal five fun facts you didn’t know about the big ‘O’.


Relax and rejuvenate
Stop splurging on foot spas and express massages. Instead, fill your bath tub with hot water, add a few drops of essential oil and help yourself. Orgasms release feel-good hormones, which are sure to calm you down after a hectic day and help you sleep better.

Relieves pain

Having a headache? Stop popping a disprin. Oxytocins will give you a flood of endorphins which can cure everything from migraine pain to killer cramps.

I’m a woman!

So what if your couch potato boyfriend fails to make you climax, your long-distance lover is not a phone sex person or you’re just single? Get under the sheets, slip into your fantasy world and let the magic ensue. Achieving those big ‘O’s will not only make you more confident, but also help you master those moves.

Like old wine
Well, honey. Now that’s one reason you’d want to grow up—orgasms get better with age. According to a study by David Weeks, a clinical neuropsychologist at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, reaching an orgasm four times a week can take as many as 10 years off your face. You don’t need those anti-ageing creams anymore, do you?

Have a good day
They’re indeed the best way to begin your mornings. I’m assuming they burn calories, since the heart rate increases, and they also induce a sense of positivity and boost your mood. The perfect way to beat those Monday blues!
