69 – Sex for health and fitness

(duration 19:30)

In this episode we explore the topic of sex, specifically its health benefits, both physically and mentally. Hormones such as oxytocin and DHEA are fostered in the process. Immune and longevity benefits are also noted. It’s important that sex be integrated with the mental side of things for optimal benefits to be derived. Sharing your sexuality with someone you value can bring about the fulfillment of other needs, such as romantic love. Thus, psychological visibility (reflecting your values) becomes a main factor in seeing sex as spectacular and an important component of the happiness of which you are worthy. Sex can evoke powerful emotions, of course, which can result in cultural mores proscribing and prohibiting its expression (and even discussion), which doesn’t help kids understand and develop a healthy view of human sexuality. Going low-carb/Paleo may augment your sex drive, as will fitness/strength training.
