True or False? Love and sex
Posted 480 days ago
True. One American study found that those who had sex once or twice a week had higher levels of a substance called immune-booster immunoglobulin A (IgA) in their bodies. This was compared to those that had no sex at all. However, more research is needed as the lowest levels of IgA were in people who had sex more than twice a week! Don’t fret if you’re single, or sex isn’t your thing. Stroking a dog is another way to raise IgA!
2. Most women orgasm every time during sex
False. Many women don’t orgasm every time they have penetrative sex. Many women find it easier to climax during foreplay, and other women don’t feel they need an orgasm to enjoy sex. Others may see their GP if they think their lack of orgasms is a problem. There are two kinds, primary – where a woman has never had an orgasm, and secondary, where her orgasms have suddenly stopped. There can be many reasons for this, like relationship problems, stress, or not enough stimulation. Talking with your partner or GP could help.
3. A cuddle is good for you
True. Physical intimacy may help you feel bonded to your partner and increase the closeness between you. There may be benefits for your health too. US doctors found that hugging may lower women’s blood pressure and increase oxytocin levels, a hormone that helps you relax.
4. Men have higher sex life than women
Studies do seem to show that women’s sex drive is lower than men’s due to testosterone levels, the hormone responsible for sexual desire. Men have a lot more of it than women do, and it stays stable throughout their lives. Women’s testosterone change around their period and after pregnancy. However sometimes it could be the man who wants less sex despite what studies say.Like Pick Me Up? Subscribe to the magazine for the latest content.
