Wine Down Wednesday: OH - ME SO HORNY.

Let’s talk about sex today.

Wait – did she say sex?

Yup. Don’t be uncomfortable – it is so normal. Human nature. A great, great thing. And you should have it more often because IT. IS. GOOD. FOR. YOU.

Please just stop with the excuses: “I’m too tired.” “I have too much going on.” “I have kids.” “I’m annoyed with my husband/boyfriend.” “We have been together for so long….” Blah………. I am rolling my eyes at you and I don’t want to hear it because I CANNOT. 

Now, I am not saying those aren’t valid excuses – they are. I am just saying that they should not be the excuse EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.  Be sexual, people. There are countless reasons why sex is beneficial for you, but the following are my favorites that I found while reading up on this:

1)   Exercise
Yes. Exercise that actually feels amazing and is FUN. (I mean besides Zumba – LOL jk. But really.) Anway, you get the point. Put on your fitbits and see how many calories you burn the next time you and your sexual are doing the dirty – I am really curious. I’ve read anywhere from 100-300 calories depending on position and duration can be burned during sex. I need real stats. Let’s sexercise more, people.

2)   You got that gl-O-w
READ: Basically sex makes you beautiful. 

3)    Pain Reliever
Headache? Cramps? NO PROBLEM – HAVE SEX.  According to the Mayo Clinic and probably every other person in medical practice/research field can tell you that orgasms release endorphins and endorphins make you feel good! I.E. relieve headaches, cramps, or any other pain you may have. Furthermore these endorphins also help to relax your body – so do the dirty before you go to bed so you can sleep better too! CHA CHA CHA.

4)   An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away…..
I can’t make this shit up. I just read about this - Dr. Lisa from Duke University states that having sex up to 200 times per year could increase your lifespan…. UP TO SIX YEARS. Say what? She also states that this is a natural boost to your self-esteem and self-confidence; therefore, see yah lata, depression. Serious question though: how good is it to feel sexy?  It truly is empowering and I guarantee guys love a confident woman in the bedroom.

I hate feeling sexy…” said no one ever. Let’s get it on, guys. 

5)   Better start than your morning coffee
Now this is saying a lot because I love coffee. I have it every morning. But according to Dr. Debby Herbenick who is a sex researcher at Indiana University and a sexual health educator at The Kinsey Institute states that starting your day with that morning O boosts your mood and also your immune system – so you’ll be feeling better ALL DAY LONG! No one wants to be around a crab. So don’t worry. Have sex. Be happy.

Lisa here and Hahahah!
Considering that I have been married for 18 years this makes me laugh because I know it's all true but life happens. Because life happens and the sex thing doesn't always happen after a day of working, being a mom taxi, working out, dealing with a hot mess of a dirty house I am going to rock drinking some Sexual Chocolate instead. Why? Well I don't have to wax for a glass of red wine, shave my legs or worry about how my body looks naked. Granted, I shouldn't be so worried but whether you birthed one kid or 6 you just do. This red takes me to another place! It's equivalent to having an orgasm that makes your body shake and your eyes roll back-yeah!!! My stress level drops and I am smiling a glow of a happy woman! Cheers! (Sorry hubby.)

Now please, go be sexual. And if you don’t agree, prove me wrong. And to all the men out there reading this – you can send your thank you notes to Lisa and myself at 76 North Watkins… JK. ;) 

XO,

L & R

p.s. I am seriously curious – how many calories did you burn?
