Frequently Asked Sexual Health Questions

1.
Can exercise increase your sex stamina?

Exercise can benefit your sex life in multiple ways. Exercise can increase the hormone testosterone, which is a primary driver of libido in men and women and erectile function in men. Exercise also supports blood flow and keeps arteries in good health. Adequate and ample blood flow to the genital region is important for both men and women for healthy sexual function. Finally, strengthening certain muscle groups, such as the pelvic floor, abdomen and upper body can help with endurance and performance.

2.
What are the health benefits of sex?

Sex is not only enjoyable, but good for your health. Sex is great for reducing stress levels, and it counts as exercise. This may be why it is linked with lower blood pressure and lower risk of heart attack. Frequent sex also boosts levels of a critical antibody called IgA, which is part of our first defense in our mucous membranes against colds and flus. Healthy sexual relationships can also contribute to our sense of well-being and human connection.

3.
What foods are good for sex drive?

It’s said that what’s “good for the heart is good for sex.” Sex, after all, is a form of exercise and healthy sexual function requires healthy blood vessels. In fact, the Mediterranean diet, which emphasizes foods that contain healthy fats like those found in fish and unprocessed plant-based foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, has been linked to better erectile function. There are also foods that, although lacking formal studies, are traditionally associated with increased libido. Some of these foods are oysters, dark chocolate, pomegranate and pumpkin seeds.
