Working out is key to maintaining our body in good health. However, recent studies discovered that exercising improves sexual health and prevents problems with sexual activity.
It’s estimated that around 31% of men experience some form of problem in their sex life. Determining precise numbers and underlying causes isn’t easy because the topic is still followed by a certain stigma, which is why men are reluctant to admit it.
Furthermore, men whose body mass index is elevated are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction. Sexual performance is also lowered in men who have a high waist circumference.
Female sexual health was also a subject of the survey, and it showed that up to 43% of women experience problems caused by excess weight/no physical activity. Women who exercise experience significantly higher levels of both desire and satisfaction.
Scientists behind the survey emphasize that this is a major issue, especially since sexual issues can affect one’s general wellbeing. Deteriorating emotional health or mental problems are just some of the consequences that can develop from sexual wellness.
The significance of sexual satisfaction is much higher than just reproduction. Sexual relations are a source of emotional feelings of closeness, affection, and satisfaction, all of which are crucial for our quality of life.
