7. Reduces risk for prostate cancer
In 2003, Australian researchers published a study showing that the more often men ejaculate between the ages of 20 and 50, the less likely they are to develop prostate cancer. According to the author of the study, men in their 20's should probably be ejaculating once a day. A similar study performed a year later by 2004 National Cancer Institute showed that men who ejaculated at least five times a week, whether by sex or masturbation, were less likely to get prostate cancer. "The claim physiologically," Dr. Goldstein told us, "is that if you empty out the tank every so often, it's healthier than holding onto the material within the tank."

8. Reduces risk for breast cancer
Women can get in on some of this sex-as-preventative-care thing too. According to Dr. Goldstein, studies show that "women who have vaginal intercourse often have less risk of breast cancer than those who do not." Dr. Goldstein added that it's "pretty interesting and exciting and needs to be studied more."

9. Boosts self-esteem and improves mood
The psychological benefits of a healthy sex life are many. The feeling of walking around on cloud nine after sex lasts longer than you think. According to Dr. Goldstein, a healthy sex life leads to long-term satisfaction with one's mental health and enhances your ability to communicate honestly and intimately. People who are sexually active are less likely to have alexithymia, which is a personality trait characterized by the inability to express or understand emotions. In other words, people having sex can express themselves better. The more often you have sex, the less depression and stress you have.

10. Prevents preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a fairly common condition where hypertension arises during pregnancy. Interestingly enough, a number of studies have shown that if a woman has had enough exposure to her partner's semen prior to conception, she is significantly less likely to get preeclampsia. In fact, tests conducted by Dutch biologists in 2000 confirmed that there is an especially significant reduced risk of preeclampsia for women who regularly practice oral sex—and even more of a reduced risk for those who swallow their partner's semen.

11. Improves sense of smell

Scientists knew for a long time that the hormone prolactin surges in both men and women after orgasm. Then in 2003, a team of Canadian researchers discovered that, in mice, prolactin causes stem cells in the brain to develop new neurons in the brain's olfactory bulb—its smell center. Dr. Sam Weiss, one of the researchers, said that he suspects that the increase in prolactin levels after sex helps "forge memories that are part of mating behaviors."

12. Increases bladder control
The pelvic thrusting involved in sex exercises the "Kegel muscles", the same set of muscles that controls urine flow. So lots of sex now may help prevent the onset of incontinence later.
