A study in the Archives Of Sex­ual Be­hav­ior found that women en­gag­ing in in­ti­macy with a man cli­maxed only about 65% of the time, but oxy­tocin, a hor­mone pro­duced when you cli­max, may help you sleep bet­ter and even curb carb crav­ings. ‘Women some­times think colour­ing our hair, get­ting our nails done and get­ting a fa­cial are the only ways to indulge our­selves, but that’s not true,’ says Schwartz.
