Exercise acts like a natural Viagra for men.
Studies show that men who exercise regularly have a lower risk for erectile dysfunction. Other studies have highlighted how increasing exercise could also boost not only improved function, but also frequency and overall satisfaction. The study lasted nine months and included normally sedentary middle-aged men. After nine months of vigorous exercise, the results showed that the more improvement in their fitness, the more stunning the results in the bedroom.
Women also receive benefits in the bedroom.
A number of studies showed that increased physical activity also increased sexual arousal, satisfaction and desire in normally sedentary women. A University of Texas at Austin study showed that exercising not only increased the sex drive in pre-menopausal women, it actually helped those who were taking antidepressants that can lower sex drives. Just as with men, the increased circulation that comes with exercising, is part of the reason for this to occur.
