You likely know that having a healthy sex life improves your romantic relationship. But, were you aware that frequent sex not only helps you to form a better connection with your partner, but it improves your overall health, as well? It's just one of the many reasons why every couple should orgasm once a day.

According to the Huffington Post, research suggests that regular orgasms can contribute to a healthier life. The operative word here is orgasm, meaning that it is not just about having sex. The true health benefits come from reaching completion.

It may not be surprising to learn that there are a number of women who don't find it necessary to orgasm every time they have sex. They may be too tired, not feeling emotionally connected, or don't have the time or energy to work at it in every instance. Because it is difficult for some women to orgasm during a "quickie", many wives and girlfriends will sacrifice their own orgasm if they are limited for time. However, once you learn how your life can improve by having frequent orgasms, you might decide to forgo that school of thought and embrace the idea that more is definitely better.

Need more convincing? Here are some benefits that may encourage you to orgasm as often as often as possible.

1. Orgasms Improve Your Libido


The more often you have sex, the more often you will want to have sex. Northwestern University’s assistant clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology Lauren Streicher told WebMD that,“having sex will make sex better and will improve your libido.” So more sex leads to. . . more sex. Nice!

2. Orgasms Help You Sleep


If you are having a hard time getting sleep, an orgasm may help. Not only will the sex tire you out, but Self Magazine reports that orgasms release endorphins that have a sedative effect.

3. Orgasms Can Alleviate Pain


Nurse practitioner Lisa Stern told Woman's Day that there is evidence that "orgasms can relieve all kinds of pain—including pain from arthritis, pain after surgery and even pain during childbirth." Better than taking a bunch of aspirins, right?

4. Orgasm Can Help You Live Longer


Dr. Howard Friedman, author of The Longevity Project, wrote in an article for Psychology Today that found women who achieved orgasm more frequently during intercourse tended to live longer than women who did not.

5. Orgasms Are Good For Your Brain


Huffington Post recently reported on Rutgers researchers Barry Komisaruk and Nan Wise who observed female subjects masturbating while lying in a MRI machine. They discovered that when the females reached orgasm, there was an increase in blood flow, nutrients and oxygen to travel to the brain.

6. Orgasms Relieve Stress


The release of oxytocin after an orgasm can make a person more relaxed, according to a Self magazine interview with Lou Paget, author of The Big O. Paget also reports that women see a decrease in blood pressure after an orgasm.

7. Orgasms Can Regulate Your Period


Everyday Health reports, that women who have sex at least once a week tend to have more regular cycles than women who rarely or never have sex. Sounds good to me.
