A Shag a Day May Keep the Doctor Away
“Doctor, I think I have high blood pressure.”
“Hmmm – can I suggest a regular shag and a bar of chocolate?”
It’s a win-win-WIN scenario. Not only are sex and chocolate fan-bloody-tastic, but there are serious benefits to the body as well.
Cocoa beans aid production of nitric oxide, which stimulates the blood vessels to dilate, and in doing so, can help lower your blood pressure (in the short term).
On the sex side, a recent study found that diastolic blood pressure is lower for people who live together and have sex often.
Why this is a win-win-WIN situation? There are the obvious benefits of eating chocolate and engaging in sex all in the name of ‘it’s good for my health’ – but by lowering your blood pressure, it allows the blood to flow freely to the places you really want it to flow to when having sex. WIN!
On another matter, I did read that women who perform oral sex and swallow are at a lower risk of developing preeclampsia – I think this might have been written by a bloke with a pregnant wife with high levels of optimism and bullshit in equal measures!
