We all know sex is fun, but think about all the other great stuff it does for us. Here's 10 facts you may not of known about sex

01 - Sex is a beauty treatment. The hormones released during sex can make your hair shinier and your skin smoother. 

02 -  Sex reduces your chances of suffering dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes. The sweat produced cleanses the pores and makes your skin glow. 

03 -  Sex can burn up those calories you piled on during that romantic dinner. A 30 minute romp can burn up to 300 calories.

04 -  Sex is one of the best sports you can take up. It stretches and tones up just about every muscle in the body. It's more fun than jogging, and you don't need special trainers. Save money on gym memberships, lads! 

05 -  Sex can help with mild depression. It releases endorphins into the bloodstream, producing a sense of euphoria and leaving you with a feeling of well-being. 

06 - The more sex you have, the more you will be offered. The sexually active body gives off greater quantities of chemicals called pheromones. These subtle sex perfumes drive people crazy.

07 -  Sex is the safest tranquilliser  in the world. Some say it’s 10 times more effective than some sleeping pills. 

08 -  Kissing each day will keep the dentist away. Kissing encourages saliva to wash food from the teeth and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay, preventing plaque build-up. 

09 -  Sex actually relieves headaches. A session can release the tension that restricts blood vessels in the brain. 

10 -  A lot of shagging can unblock a stuffy nose. Sex is a natural antihistamine. It can help combat asthma and hay fever


But Don't forget the condoms and lube...

1 . Use the right lube

Only water-based (and silicone-based) lubes are okay to use with latex condoms.

2 . Use enough lube

Studies have shown that guys who use plenty of lube, both on the condom and up the arse of the man being fucked have much fewer condom breakages than guys who just use lube on the condom alone. 

3. Use the right size condom for your cock

Using a condom that’s too small for your cock can make it more likely to break. Using one that is too big may make it more likely to slip off. Condoms come in a range of sizes so you can find one which is right for you. 

4. Change the condom after 30 minutes

Just like you, condoms can get worn out after fucking for a while. Condoms become more likely to break the longer you use them.

5. Roll it don’t stretch it

Rolling the condom down from the  tip puts a lot less stress on the condom, meaning it stays stronger

while you’re fucking. Roll the condom all the way down to limit the chance it will come off during sex. 

6. Just use one condom at a time

You might think that using two condoms will give you twice as much protection – it won’t. But it can cause friction which makes them break. 

7. Store your condoms in a safe place

Condoms need to be kept away from damp, hot places and out of direct sunlight to stay at their best. And check the use by date. Condoms don’t last forever you know.
