If you thought working out only contributes to you being physically fit and more attractive, think again. Being fit is a potent aphrodisiac for girls. Here are 9 real reasons why girls who exercises at least 3 times a week have way better sex – EVERY single the time.
1. Increases focus
It’s really common when your guy is necking you (or heaven forbid, going down on you), your head wanders somewhere else – perhaps a work deadline or what to eat after you’re done.
Exercise can help sync your mind to your body, as well as quiet your racing brain so you can focus on the task at hand – which is to feel every single touch and sensation.
2. Accelerates arousal and increases intensity
A recent study found that women who frequently exercise become aroused more quickly and are able to orgasm faster and more intensely. When you get excited, blood surges into the clitoral bulbs, making the entire region around the vagina responsive to pleasure. Cardiovascular exercise can help blood pump faster to the right parts of your body; it can also reduce chronic inflammation, which can damage blood vessels and decrease circulation, putting a damper on your sexual bliss.
3. Builds stronger lungs
A healthy pair of lungs helps express your elation with more gusto, of course, but you’ll have a lot more to scream about if you learn to control your breath. Partners who breathe in tandem may create a bigger buildup, which can intensify pleasure. And women who take short, quick breaths as they reach climax—rather than holding their breath—may reduce carbon dioxide in the blood, possibly intensifying vaginal contractions. Yoga can help women focus on their breathing, while high-intensity interval training increases lung capacity—which ensures you’ll be vocalizing your gratification through the grand finale.
4. Revs up your sex drive
During a single strength workout, your body produces higher levels of growth hormone and testosterone, hormones that play a pivotal role in muscle growth–and sex drive.
5. Enhances endurance
Some women can take 12 minutes—or longer—to orgasm. If your body fizzles out prior to that, you may be missing out. Regular physical activity improves stamina and trains your muscles to hold out longer by using energy more efficiently. The result? You won’t have to pause prematurely to give your aching arms or tired legs a break during your next epic sex session.
6. Makes your feel sexier
Exercise transforms the way you view your body—and how you enjoy sex. And it is not about how thin you get. Researchers have found that women of all sizes who reported greater body appreciation (for their physical abilities, such as progress in the weight room) were more easily aroused, enjoyed sex more, and had more orgasms.
7. Lightens the mood
Even feeling just a little down can weaken sexual desire. Exercise leads to an immediate rush of mood-lifting, stress-dissolving endorphins – it’s such a potent anti-depressant that some research suggests regular workouts are as effective as psychiatric medications – double whammy!
8. Makes you more sensitive
And we don’t mean crying during sex. The tissue that forms the clitoris contains 8,000 nerve fibers that extend into the entire pelvic region, including the vaginal walls. Physical activity was primes a woman’s body for sexual activity by making her more sensitive to touch and increasing the efficacy of stimuli, likely by revving up a network of neurons known as your sympathetic nervous system, which controls your arousal.
