4 Reasons to Have Sex Tonight

You know that getting it on feels sooo good — but did you also know that it's good for you? Check out the healthy side effects of hitting the sheets.

1. Sex burns fat.
A moderately active booty session reportedly torches around 85 calories ; that’s roughly the same number of calories in two Oreo cookies. Plus, when you’re busy in the bedroom, you won’t be stuffing your face in the kitchen.

2. It can keep you from getting sick.
People who do the deed once or twice a week have significantly higher levels of an antibody that
improves immunity to colds and the flu.

3. It helps you fall and stay asleep.
You already know that guys are prone to nodding off immediately after sex. But booty is a natural sedative for women too. Both men and women release oxytocin just before orgasm; as this feel-good hormone pulses through your system, it promotes feelings of relaxation and sleepiness.

4. It relieves menstrual cramps.
Many women say that period pain diminishes if they do the deed during a cramp attack. One theory why: The muscle contractions that occur when you reach peak relieve tension in the muscles of your uterus, which are the ones that cause menstrual cramps.

What's the craziest reason you ever had sex?
