Sex 'can help people be healthy'

It has been suggested that having sex regularly can lead to a healthy body and mind, news which may be of interest to those buying condoms online.

Dr Dittakarn Boriboonhirunsarn described in an article for the Bangkok Post how the act can help to relax muscles and de-stress individuals.

He explained how endorphins that are released during sexual activity along with the hormone oxytocin can act as a pain reliever.

Meanwhile, the prospect of getting naked can spur some people into kick-starting a fitness regime so they get into shape.

An additional benefit noted by the specialist is the effect it can have on the heart.

"Researchers found that having sex twice or more a week reduced the risk of fatal heart attacks by half for men, compared with those who had sex less than once a month," Dr Boriboonhirunsarn commented.

In a separate article for the news source, the expert recently gave a list of behavioural patterns that could suggest someone is suffering from a cyber sex addiction, these included having multiple romantic affairs in chat rooms.
