Everyone knows the benefits of having sex - looking younger, improved immune system, decreasing stress and depression etc. But, are these things only beneficial if you reach the "Big O"?

The benefits certainly increase if you orgasm, as your body gets a bigger flush of all those hormones, including oxytocin, endorphins, prolactin - that have such a positive health effect, in terms of stress reduction and bonding.The more aroused you get though, and the better the orgasm, the better the effect – for both of you. But you will still get benefits with any level of enjoyable sexual activity. Stress ‘enjoyable’. A dull orgasm from a brief, grudging sexual act is not as beneficial as a lengthy, sensual, highly pleasurable sexual encounter with no orgasm. Best of all: a gorgeous, highly arousing encounter with lengthy and incredibly satisfying orgasms!
