The NHS helpline says "Forget about jogging round the block or struggling with sit-ups. The key for healthy living is, in fact, good bout of 'sexercise'."
The NHS site goes all out to explain the positive effects of Orgasms, explaining how orgasms release painkillers in the blood stream, and offer a protection for colds, illnesses, aches and pains. Sex helps in producing extra estrogen and testosterone, a widely known protective cover for bones and muscles. And all these extra hormones act as hair and skin conditioners.

But Dr Melissa Sayer, an expert in sexual health, said the site has made claims that are not proven yet. According t her, Sex does promote mental well-being, but to extend the benefits to the heart and cancer prevention, is like making lofty claims, without any scientific proof.
