Good Workouts Lead to Better Sex for Men and Women
Exercise & Sex
Latest research findings indicate that an exercise program involving aerobic and resistance exercise improves sexual function in men. Just as interesting, Kegel exercises and Yoga also improve sexual function in women.
Regular high-intensity exercise also affects the estrogen/testosterone balance by decreasing the fat content of the body. This is very important to sexual health, especially in men. Exercise also improves cardiovascular health and vascular supply (blood flow) to the penis in men and the clitoris in women.
Recently a study to determine the benefit of exercise on sexual function was performed in men who are hardest to treat: men with prostate cancer receiving hormonal therapy that eliminates testosterone in the body.
Benefits of Exercise for Men
Men who were assigned to an exercise program experienced significant improvement in sexual function compared to men who were not assigned to exercise program. This suggests that the benefits of exercise are likely to be significantly greater for men who are not taking medications for the treatment of prostate cancer.
In fact, we know that weight loss alone (through diet and exercise) can revert erectile dysfunction in some men without the need for medications.
Just as interesting, a study of the effect of Kegel exercises in women revealed improved sexual satisfaction compared to women who were in the control arm of the study. In addition, in post-menopausal women, yoga was found to have a positive effect on quality of life and sexual functioning.
Exercise and Testosterone Levels
Regular exercise can also help maintain and raise testosterone levels. In overweight men, exercise and weight loss can also help with raising testosterone levels. Testosterone levels are important for good erections and high sex drive in men.
