5 Reasons to Get Naked Tonight

Better sleep. A sexier physique. Stronger immunity. Sound like the effects of the latest wonder drug? Nope, it's just the many physical benefits of having a satisfying sexual relationship.

And all this time you were just making love because it was fun! If you're looking for more reasons to get romantic, consider the following:

Sexual Healing Stat #1: You're getting a good workout.

Regular sex - which burns approximately 150 calories in a half-hour -- is regular exercise. You'll have all the same benefits of spending that time in the gym, including improved circulation, lower cholesterol and the release of feel-good endorphins.

Sexual Healing Stat #2: You won't get sick.

According to research by Dr. Carl Charnetski, professor of psychology at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, PA, and co-author of Feeling Good is Good For You, people who reported one or two sexual episodes per week enjoyed higher levels of Immunoglobin A, the antibody that helps fend off illness.

Sexual Healing Stat #3: You'll feel happier.

In addition to the obvious boost in satisfaction, feeling secure in your relationship leads to a greater sense of well-being. Women, in particular, may see even more benefits. Researchers at the State University of New York at Albany found that women who regularly came into contact with semen were significantly less depressed than those who didn't get a dose of those potent sex hormones and natural opiates.

Sexual Healing Stat #4: You'll reduce stress.

People who get it on regularly report that they handle stress better. The release of climax will get even the most anxious lover totally relaxed, and you know you'll sleep better.

Sexual Healing Statt #5: You'll live longer (and look younger!).

A British study of 1,000 men found that those who had at least two orgasms per week had half the death rate of those who indulged less than once a month. Sex can make you look longer, too, according to research finding that men and women who reported having sex an average of four times per week looked approximately 10 years younger than they really were.
