Simply Her (Singapore) - - Life Made Easy Sex -

Be­sides headaches, sex can also re­lieve other forms of pain for up to two days, such as men­strual cramps, and chronic back and leg pain, says Barry Komisaruk, a psy­chol­ogy pro­fes­sor at Rut­gers Uni­ver­sity. He also as­serts that self-stim­u­la­tion of the front wall of the vagina (where the G-spot is lo­cated) can pro­duce a pow­er­ful anal­gesic ef­fect, thereby

in­creas­ing pain tol­er­ance by as much as 50 per cent. In a study pub­lished in Bi­o­log­i­cal Psy­chol­ogy, re­searchers from the Uni­ver­sity of the West of Scot­land say women re­sponded bet­ter to stress­ful sit­u­a­tions when they had

in­ter­course at least once in the pre­vi­ous two weeks, com­pared to those who ab­stained or en­gaged in other sex­ual ac­tiv­i­ties. The for­mer were less uptight about speak­ing in public and do­ing ver­bal arith­metic, due to the stress-bust­ing hor­mones – en­dor­phins and oxy­tocin – the

body re­leases dur­ing sex.
