Unless you’ve been medically advised against sexual activity, you should try to fuck through all of your ailments. Please don’t ignore the first half of that sentence, I’m very serious. If a doctor says “no sex”, then don’t. If the doctor says no strenuous activity…don’t assume sex is out, make him/her spell it out.
This is no joke, if you have to roll through a list of positions – then do so. Don’t make any assumptions because you could be missing out on some natural healing. It’s worth the trouble, I promise you.
Depending on what’s wrong, you may need to make some adjustments. Sex can cure headaches and migraines because of the pleasure hormones (oxytocin and endorphins) that it releases. According to Popsugar, sex can also help cure:
- Cramps: Having sex can help with period pain. Orgasms cause the uterine muscles to contract and release brain chemicals that act as a natural pain reliever, immediately relieving menstrual cramps.
- Colds: Regular sex has also been shown to have immune-boosting effects that can cure the common cold. Intercourse raises immunoglobulin A, an antibody that fights the cold virus.
- Morning sickness: Oral sex can cure morning sickness? Yes, according to Gordon Gallup, a psychologist at SUNY-Albany. He says that the best way to cure morning sickness during pregnancy is with semen from the person who got you pregnant. Gallup believes that a woman’s body rejects the father’s semen, causing sickness, so if you build up a tolerance by ingesting it, you can prevent the stomach problems.
- Insomnia: After sex, your body releases the hormone oxytocin, aka the “cuddle hormone,” which makes you sleepy. And women produce more oxytocin than men.
- Hiccups: Dr. Francis M. Fesmire came up with two cures for hiccups, “digital rectal massage” and orgasms. He said, “An orgasm results in incredible stimulation of the vagus nerve. From now on, I will be recommending sex — culminating with orgasm — as the cure-all for intractable hiccups.”
- Depression: Sex has been proven to help mental health thanks to numerous studies. James Coan, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, says, “When you have sex, you release feel-good hormones, including oxytocin and endorphins.” And a recent study found that oral sex can help, too, since semen contains chemicals that elevate mood, increase affection, and contain antidepressants.
