Deciding to study the human body's reactions to sex, researchers from the United States found that having sex, regular but not too frequent, has a weight loss effect. As a result, experts have named the exact frequency of having sex for those who want to become slimmer with their help.
The authors of the project argue that sex in general is favorable for keeping yourself in shape. According to them, intimate relationships in which partners enter with pleasure, contribute to an increase in blood levels of the "hormone of joy" endorphin. Thanks to this, stress and depressive states are arrested, and at the same time the need to "seize" unpleasant emotions also decreases.
According to the results of the study, experts concluded that even sex once a week will be enough to start losing weight.

In addition, the skin tightens and becomes more elastic, which is transformed by growth hormone, which reduces the amount of body fat,”- said the researchers. (READ MORE)
