November is Movember, a time to raise awareness of men’s health issues. Sometimes referred to as “No Shave November,” many men grow their facial hair and wear blue ribbons to help people understand the importance of learning about prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide prevention.
At FunLove.com, we celebrate Movember with our male staffers, customers, and friends. Considering our background, we do our part to help people understand how a satisfying sex life contributes to men’s health. Whether you’re with a partner or self-pleasuring, regular sexual activity can improve mental and physical health. Learn more about the benefits of sex on men’s health in this Movember blog.
Regular Sex Improves Your Physical Health
There are so many physical benefits to having sex regularly. Good sex increases your heart rate, burns calories, and exercises muscles. Additionally, the brain releases numerous hormones after an orgasm, which contribute to many facets of men’s health. In fact, a Planned Parenthood study showed that men that have at least 2 orgasms a week have a 50 percent lower mortality risk than those who do not.
Numerous studies have also shown that regular sex helps:
- Lower blood pressure
- Boost your immune system
- Lower the risk of heart attack
- Assist with pain management
- Lower the risk of prostate cancer
- Improve sleep
These are all fantastic benefits that can be achieved by having sex or masturbating regularly. FunLove.com understands that pleasuring yourself the same way over and over again can get boring. That’s one of the reasons why we carried a wide range of male masturbators. Whether you’re buying for yourself or for a friend, a quality male sex toy can help spice things up while simulaneously improving physical health.
The Mental Health Benefits of Sex
Having an orgasm releases many hormones that make you feel good and also reduces cortisol levels, the hormone most associated with stress. In addition to helping reduce stress, regular orgasms help decrease feelings of loneliness and despair—two frequent contributors to male suicide.
While the release of endorphins and the temporary feeling of ecstasy aren’t long term solutions to any ongoing mental issues, they can be an integral component of everyday happiness.
Although the mental benefits of sex vary from person to person and may not be as obvious as the physical benefits, they are no less important. Reducing stress and improving mood are important facets of a healthy lifestyle. Furthermore, regular sex with a partner can improve intimacy and prevent the mental causes of erectile dysfunction.
If you or a friend are looking for ways to improve sexual performance and improve mental health, FunLove.com has a number of excellent supplements that can improve libido and performance. If you’re not sure what kind of supplements are right for you, our guide on male enhancers has your answers.
Use Movember to Check Male Health
Men should get regular checkups, although many do not. In those cases, FunLove.com urges you to use Movember to check on men’s health issues. Men should check their testicles monthly for any signs of testicular cancer. This is very easy to do once you know what to look for. If you’re unfamiliar with the technique and warning signs, please consult this Mayo Clinic guide.
Depending on other health conditions, prostate exams should start around age 40 or 50. As always, check with your physician to see if you have a higher risk of prostate cancer than normal. It’s suggested that most middle-aged men get prostate exams every two to four years. According to the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), prostate cancer is the second-most common type of cancer among men. Early deduction is vital for successful treatment.
