Any sex is good, but if you want to have really great sex, you might be just a workout away from reaching your fantasy. In general, women who are fit have more frequent and more intense sex sessions, especially when their bedroom romps are done post-workout. Exercise increases overall blood flow, which translates to faster arousal and quicker, more intense orgasms for women. Here are some other, less obvious connections between fitness and great sex:
Focused breathing: Your mind might be clear of dirty thoughts during your yoga practice, but when it comes time to get down to business your body will automatically return to the deep, heavy breathing that can give you better orgasms and help you climax faster and more intensely. High intensity interval training can help you build your lung capacity for quick breathing when things get really intense.
Endurance training: Nothing is more frustrating than getting winded before your orgasm, which can end in a disappointing finale for both parties. Working out regularly increases your endurance and helps you use your energy efficiently, making it more likely that you’ll be ready and raring to go through the end…and maybe even up for a second round.
Get more action: We all know that getting naked when you don’t feel good sounds like more of a chore than a pleasure. Working out boosts your confidence and naturally makes you feel good about yourself, so you’ll be more likely to be enthusiastic about shedding your clothes instead of bashful. The same goes for your partner, so suggest tandem workouts followed by a steamy shower if you struggle to find the energy and motivation for sexy time.
The great news is that you can enjoy the added benefits of fit sex without training for a marathon. Just 15-20 minutes a day can be enough to achieve all these added bonuses, along with the stress relieving benefits of sex itself.
