Want relief from hay fever? The best way is to get frisky between the sheets

CURE GORGEOUS

FROM colds to cancer, getting frisky between the sheets can do wonders for our health.

Allergy expert Max Weisberg revealed this week that a cheeky bonk helps the body ­tackle hay fever as, “At the point of orgasm, the sympathetic nervous system constricts blood vessels across the body”.

Cold and flu

People who have sex a couple of times a week have more flu-fighting antibodies, researchers at Wilkes University in the US discovered.

Headaches

It’s the traditional excuse for “not tonight, love”, but if you really do have a headache, the hormone oxytocin released during lovemaking reduces pain.

Blood pressure

As well as reducing pain, oxytocin also calms the nerves, counteracting stress hormone cortisol, so can be beneficial in lowering blood pressure.

Cancer

The more often men have sex between the ages of 20 and 50, the lower their chances of prostate cancer, says a study by Australian researchers.

Mental health

Feelgood chemicals released during sex, including dopamine, boost mood, increase compassion and help you bond with your partner.

Heart attacks

Sex is exercise, which is good for the heart. One study found that men who have sex twice a week are 50 per cent less likely to have a heart attack.

Bladder control

A bit of thrusting helps exercise the pelvic floor muscles, which control urine flow. Keeping these strong helps prevents incontinence later.

Sleep

Wonder why you often feel drowsy after sex? Making love stimulates the release of sleep-inducing hormones, in particular prolactin.
