Unpacking The Benefits Of Having An Orgasm

Orgasms are one of the best experiences that this world has to offer. The feeling of having an orgasm and the feeling following it are surreal and magical but raw and real at the same time, the perfect combination, if you ask us. 

Now, you might think that the benefit of having an orgasm is simply that you get to have an orgasm. However, many other benefits come with having an orgasm that has nothing to do with its feeling in the moment. 

Here are all the benefits that your body can gain from having an orgasm. 

Stress Relief 


The feeling of being stressed is one of the worst in the world. You feel like your brain is working at 100 miles per hour, and all your body wants to do is take a nice long nap, but it can’t because the stress keeps waking you up. 

Having an orgasm will allow your body to release millions of happiness hormones to make you feel much more relaxed and happy. As a result, your stress will melt away for a little while, and you might even feel good enough to complete the tasks that were causing your stress. 

Immune System 


Over the past year, I have learned more about my immune system than I ever wanted to know, but some of that information was valuable. Especially the information that told me exactly how to strengthen my immune system. 

Luckily for us, aside from a healthy diet and regular exercise, there are some excellent ways to boost your immune system that are fun, such as having an orgasm. Having an orgasm boosts your immune system because it releases antibodies. 



If you are a woman and you have an orgasm, your body will naturally increase estrogen levels. We all know how good estrogen is for you and that women produce it naturally; orgasms just give it an extra boost. 

Estrogen helps you to stay youthful and helps to build up the collagen in your body as well. All of that just from feeling good sounds like the sweetest deal in the world to me. 

Insomnia Cure 


You might have noticed that you feel quite tired after sex, and all you want to do is take a nap. This is probably because you have had an orgasm, and that has released the hormones that relax you. 

After an orgasm, your body will feel light and relaxed, which will make it much easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. This will mean that you can use having an orgasm as an insomnia cure. 

Pain Relief 


Now, we don’t mean that you can have an orgasm in place of taking paracetamol for this one, but having an orgasm can help alleviate any pain you feel so that it is a milder form. 

Having an orgasm can help alleviate pain. When you have an orgasm, your body naturally releases oxytocin and endorphins, which will help you feel as though the pain is milder. 

Brain Food


It might sound insane, but orgasms can actually make you a tiny bit smarter. Okay, you’re not going to turn into Einstein because of it, but it will definitely make you just a tiny bit smarter each time. 

This is because they get your blood flowing and will stimulate your brain. It will also allow more nutrients and oxygen to travel to your brain much faster. 

Mood Booster 


This one is a no-brainer. Orgasms will boost your mood because, of course, you will feel amazing when it is happening, and afterward, you will feel a sense of satisfaction and relaxation that you didn’t have before. 

The hormones that your body releases when you orgasm will ensure that your mood is boosted for at least a couple of hours after it is all over.
