The more you run the better you would become in bed with your partner. Running will help you feel more confident and more attractive. If you are a runner, you already know the benefits of the sport—it makes you live longer, reduces stress, improves memory, and even lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases. To be able to perform sexually for a given time, you need to run at least for 30 mins everyday.
Yes, it is true, runners have great s3x lives. Here’s reason why running could help you have better s3x
Leads To Increased Testosterone Levels
Testosterone levels play a major role in regulating libido in both men and women. It is scientifically proven that those with higher circulating levels of testosterone tend to engage in more sexual activity. In women, testosterone levels increase around and during ovulation, which is when they tend to feel more sexually aroused. There is enough and more scientific proof for the fact that running helps boost testosterone levels, which, in turn, translates to better s3x.
Your Heart Rate Will Decrease
A sedentary lifestyle with no or irregular physical activity can make you enjoy less the sexual intercourse. After a few minutes, the heart rate is too high, the body temperature increases and everything starts to bother.
For a runner in good shape, s3x means a low physical demand. If you can run without stopping for an hour, s3x is something “easy” for you.
The first step toward having a good sex life is to have a healthy s3x drive or libido. A 2013 study conducted by researchers at the University of Texas at Austin, which studied the effects of exercise on women taking antidepressants that have libido-damaging effects, provides enough proof that running and other aerobic activities can boost sex drive. The study concluded that exercising 30 minutes prior to having sex reduced the effects of the medicines and boosted libido.
Enables Faster And More Intense Orgasms
Running can help reach a satisfying climax. In a study of over 5,500 Finnish women in their 40s and 50s, researchers found a significant positive pattern seen with respect to strenuous exercise and orgasm experiences. The Texas study also observed that women who exercised before having sex were aroused more quickly and were able to orgasm faster and more intensely.
Self-confidence is key to sexual performance. Running helps deal with body image issues and leaves you appreciating your body and what it can do. It has been proven to increase body confidence. A 2008 study conducted at Florida Atlantic University found that men and women who exercised frequently were more likely to rate themselves higher in sexual desirability. It also found that physical activity like running made women’s bodies more sensitive to touch, while men reported better orgasms and improved sexual function.
Makes You Feel More Desirable
Although relates to point 1, it is important to say that there is evidence that women and men feel more desired when they do physical activity. Thus, in a Study on women they reported feeling more desired. 71% of women who reported physical form above average, were rated more desirable.
In men, 100% of those who exercised 6 or 7 days a week reported feeling more desired than average. In women the percentage was 63%.
Helps Manage Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Estimates suggest that 1 in every 10 men suffers from erectile dysfunction at some point in his life. And, guess what, as running gets your blood flowing at a healthy pace, it also helps alleviate erectile dysfunction.
Lowers Risk of Impotence
Erectile dysfunction, is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse. Impotence or erectile dysfunction is a common disease that if left untreated can affect relations with the couple, family, work and social environment.
In a 2003 Study from Harvard University found that men over 50 who exercise at least three hours a week, have a 30% lower risk of impotence than those who do little or no exercise.
Running is, therefore, a good way to boost your performance sexually. Also, remember to maintain a balance in your regime. Do not over work yourself as it might tire you out.
