Why sex is good for your brain and also staves off everything from heart disease to cancer and headaches – if you keep at it!

Having more sex could not only make us feel good, it could provide far-reaching health benefits.
Unfortunately we are having less of it – on average we have sex fewer than five times a month, compared to six-and-a-half times 20 years ago, according to the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles.
Yet studies have linked regular sexual activity to emotional well-being, reduced migraine pain and even a lower risk of prostate cancer.
