 Study Shows Why Orgasms are Good for You
Having orgasms is healthy for the body and mind, reveals new study.

Dr. Jennifer Berman, co-founder of the Female Sexual Medicine Center at UCLA, believes that orgasms boost your blood circulation and act as natural sedatives to help you sleep better, the Huffington Post reported.

Berman insisted that orgasm can serve as a form of cardio, as it increases your heart rate, blood pressure and respiratory rate.

Additionally, orgasm can uplift your mood, because it releases endorphins, dopamine and oxytocin that have "mood-enhancing effects".

Berman said that orgasms not only act as natural painkillers, but being sexual also gives our minds a break.

Also, the sensation experienced during an orgasm increases the brain's mental power and gives you a healthy glow.
