Well I hate to say this but women derive more benefits from intercourse than men do. Just look at this list. More regular menstrual cycles; more fertile menstrual cycles; lighter periods; better moods; better memories; better bladder control; fewer colds and flu; reduced stress; increased hormones of youth -DHEA, testosterone and estrogen.
And probably the most important is weight control. Sex burns about 150 calories per half hour, yoga 114, dancing-rock 129, walking 153, lifting weights 153.
It was also found that intercourse helps in pain relief. Having an orgasm has been shown to decrease pain by 50%. So men, when your wife says “not tonight, I have a headache”, you can say “but honey, I can help you with your pain! ”
