While you may have heard that regular exercise helps reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases, it can also help in the bedroom. According to new research, exercise can help both men and women improve their sex life. Exercise is being found to be a natural Viagra for men, the higher a man’s fitness level the higher their sexual satisfaction and performance. Research in women has found that those who are physically active report greater sexual desire, arousal and satisfaction than women who are sedentary.

What can be the cause of this? Scientifically: increased blood flow from exercise helps men and women alike. Also, physical activity (especially strength training) leads to increased levels of testosterone which may boost sex drive in men and women. Just be sure to not overtrain, which can have the opposite effect! But non-scientific reasons include an enhanced self-image that comes with exercising regularly. Men and women who exercise may be more likely to feel sexually desirable, which leads to better sex. So can greater strength, flexibility and stamina that result from exercise. In a sense you can get in a loop of exercising and a healthy sex life. Win-win for everyone involved.

Also, another thought: increased stamina leads to longer sex which burns about 3 to 4 calories per minute (men burn more than women). And cardio, done. What are your thoughts on exercise benefits? Do you see a difference in the bedroom? Or elsewhere?
