Having an orgasm isn’t just great for the bedroom, it comes with so many health benefits.
In fact, reaching the big-O on a daily basis could promise a whole host of qualities in your life.
The sexperts at Hot Octopuss have shared their science-backed health reasons for daily orgasms.
Now it means there’s simply no reason for you to put off some kinky fun in the bedroom anymore!
From fighting off infections to improving sleep quality, you’ll be amazed at what a daily boost of “Vitamin O” could do to you.
So now that we’ve got your attention, here are 9 reasons why daily orgasms are great for you.
1. Fights off infections
There’s plenty of research to suggest that regular sexual activity helps boost your immune system.
A survey of college students in 2004 found that those having frequent fun between the sheets had 30% more immunoglobulin A.
2. Less risk of prostate cancer
A study of 50,000 men from US’s National Cancer Institute found those ejaculating more were less likely of developing the disease.
While no one is certain why this is, it’s thought that regular ejaculation might clear old semen out of the penis.
3. Delays menopause and reduce symptoms
A study found that women in their 40s and 50s who were active in bed at least were less likely to have been through menopause.
Regular orgasms will keep your vagina healthy by increasing blood flow and lubrication to the area.
If you’re finding yourself slow or less sensitive, which is common around menopause, then try an ergonomically designed bullet vibe.
4. Great for your mental health
There’s a lot of research to suggest that orgasms help relieve stress.
Partnered sex releases oxytocin, a hormone that promotes relaxation and a sense of trust and connection.
It also reduces the levels of the stress hormone cortisol in your body.
So next time you want a brain boost, go on and get into the bedroom now!
5. Orgasms improve work performance
Psychologists have been known to suggest “masturbation breaks” at work as a way of reducing stress and improving productivity.
According to life coach Dr Cliff Arnall, a masturbation policy might result in “more focus, less aggression and higher productivity”.
6. Orgasms may help you live longer
Scientists announced in 2011 that a study suggested that women who orgasm regularly during sex live longer than those who don’t.
But sadly, there hasn’t been enough research to say for sure.
However, research in the past has found a link between regular, satisfying sex, improved health and longer lifespan.
7. Orgasms can help manage pain
Research has shown that pain tolerance goes up when you get jiggy, that’s why migraines and headaches reduce during sex.
It’s due to the endorphins that are released during some kinky fun.
And the same goes for women who suffer from period cramps as sex is one of the best ways of tackling the pain without pills.

8. Improves sleep quality
There are many reasons why reaching the big-O may lead directly to getting more sleep.
Firstly, the sleep-inducing hormone prolactin is produced during orgasm.
Also oxytocin is released which is responsible for relaxing that makes a good night’s sleep more likely.
In addition, energetic sex can help tire out your body and get your ready for bedtime.
9. It’s a great workout
Exercise that raises your heart rate (like sex) is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
The heart rate during orgasm is approximately the same as when you’re climbing a flight of stairs.
