According to one study 60% of migraine sufferers claimed that having sex during a migraine helped with their condition. However, just before you look lustfully to your partner (with your one working eye...) it's worth noting that a third of people said it made things worse...

But I guess that could depend on the quality of sex you're dealing with...

2. Orgasms ease period pain!

Yes, ladies! Let pleasure triumph pain and go to town on your love muffin!

So you've heard of Kegel exercises, right? Turns out tensing your vag muscles (similar to other muscles!) helps make them strong! But if you're not actively bothered about having a buff baby box then boy, I have some good news for you! 

Kegel's involve tensing and releasing the pelvic floor muscles and during orgasm, pelvic floor muscles can contract up to 15 times at approx. one-second intervals!

So what are you waiting for? Go for a "work out"! 

4. And keep your immune system strong!

Not only are orgasms going to revolutionize your vaginal muscles they're also going to keep you fighting fit for longer!

A study found that those who had sex more frequently had higher levels of immunoglobulin A (that old chestnut!) in their saliva samples! AMAZING...

... If you don't happen to be a super clever scientist like me, immunoglobulin A is important for protecting your immune system! So get it on and be sick no more! (or at least less often...)

5. More sex, less stress

When you reach your Big O your all important cardiovascular system gets a mini workout! 

Dweck explains, "sex and orgasms can cause blood vessels to dilate throughout the body, which can help overall cardiovascular health."

Ever had hiccups? Then you'll know as soon as you get 'em and everyone and their dog has an opinion on how to get rid of them and none of them ever freakin' work

Fortunately, there may be a more fun method of ridding yourself of hiccups... This forty-year-old man was hiccuping for four days on the trot. The only thing that got him to shut up? Ejaculating. 

Who'd have thunk it?! 

8. Cancer combatant 

According to this study, men who ejaculate more often are less likely to suffer prostate cancer! A good reason to get hot and heavy with your fella! 

9. Happy as heck!

Is it any surprise that orgasms reportedly make you happier in general?! They're freakin' amazing! 

Why is this though? Well, when you orgasm your endorphin and oxytocin levels rocket sky high! Which makes you feel more relaxed and less caught up on the more negative aspects of your life. 

So go and get yours, girls and boys! 

10. Self lovin' life!
