Yes, that’s right – sex can do wonders for your back.
Orgasms are 10 times more effective than painkillers such a Valium. They also have 10 times the anxiety-reducing effect as the drug.
So if you want to soothe that back then some love making is on the cards.
The study from the University of Munster, Germany, found that orgasms can also help those with severe migraines.
They found that more than half of sufferers experience an improvement after they “used sexual activity as a therapeutic tool”.
The hormone oxytocin rises almost five times just before an orgasm.
“Endorphins interact with the opiate receptors in the brain to reduce our perception of pain and act similarly to drugs such as morphine and codeine,” MedicineNet said.
The natural painkilling qualities of endorphins can help with pain, and lowering levels of anxiety will make you more relaxed.
This can help stave off pain in the future.
Want to know how to make a woman orgasm every time?
A study from a team of scientists in the US have found that a combination of three particular moves will dramatically increase the likelihood of a woman reaching orgasm with a sexual partner.
Women are most likely to have a ‘yes yes yes’ moment if their partner engages in deep kissing, genital stimulation and oral sex.
It has also been discovered that feminist women are more likely to orgasm than those with tradition views.
Scientists found that women with a world view that includes “benevolent sexism” reported a less orgasms.
Benevolent sexism in this content means expecting men to show a chivalrous attitude towards women and viewing women as being in need of men’s protection.
“Little attention has been paid to the more distal ideological factors that might indirectly constrain sexual pleasure,” wrote the scientists from the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland.
