Why do we love oral sex so much? This is a question that has been on the minds of countless people throughout the world.

After all, It’s one of the most beautiful sex acts which can increase the level of intimacy during foreplay.

Odds are, you enjoy the feeling of your partner giving you a blowjob, or going down on you. Whenever the opportunity arises, you enjoy every second as each sensation brings you closer & closer to orgasm. But despite feeling amazing, there are also some scientific benefits.

Let me explain.

According to a study done by researchers in The Netherlands, Oral sex has potential links with reduced incidence of recurrent miscarriage. Quoting the article published in Metro UK:

“The end product of oral sex strengthens a pregnant woman’s immune system and may even help foetuses grow healthily.”

But before I continue about how oral sex can improve your health, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge you, the reader.

You clicked on this story because you (probably) love oral sex. You enjoy the feeling of being intimate with your partner and receiving mind-blowing orgasms every time you have intercourse.

Are you ready to learn about the health benefits of oral sex?

Let’s begin.

Do you ever have those moments where you want to give your partner immense sexual pleasure?

I understand how you feel. Scientific research shows that oral sex increases the levels of satisfaction and intimacy between partners.

In a study published in the Huffington Post, most men performed oral sex “to minimize the risk of their partner’s infidelity by increasing her relationship satisfaction.”

Ask your partner what they enjoy. Question how you can improve your sex life, and ensure that you do everything possible for you both to feel sexually fulfilled.

Whether you are having penetrative or oral sex, multiple studies have shown that semen has some antidepressant properties.

According to an article published by Michael Castleman M.A. in Psychology Today, “semen spurs ovulation and makes women feel happier.”

The article continues to say:

“Compared with women who always or usually used condoms, those who never did (whose vaginas were exposed to semen) showed significantly better mood — fewer depressive symptoms, and fewer bouts of depression.”

Of course, you don’t have to be having unprotected sex or ingesting semen daily. For most people, that’s just impractical.

If you recognize that oral sex may potentially improve your overall mood, it can enhance your levels of intimacy with your partner.

During orgasm, your brain releases Oxytocin & Endorphins — which essentially act as natural pain killers.

If you’re anything like me, levels of extreme stress are typical at the end of each workday. No matter how hard you try to stay motivated, the intensity of commuting (and various other factors) can be mentally draining for the mind and body.

This is where oral sex regularly is useful.

You see, when you and your partner are performing oral sex on each other, the arrival of an orgasm will radically decrease your stress levels.

How amazing is that?

I’ll leave you with a quote from Richard P. Feynman, who perfectly sums up the logic behind having regular oral sex:

“Science is like sex: sometimes something useful comes out, but that is not the reason we are doing it. ”
