Hit the Gym for Better Sex

Men who exercise have better sexual function than those who don't.

You have a certain appendage that gets an exceptional boost from exercise, and it’s not your arms or legs. It’s your penis. 

Men who exercise more have better erectile and sexual function, according to research from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

In the study, nearly 300 men self-reported their activity levels, which researchers categorized as sedentary, mildly active, moderately active or highly active. The participants also self-reported the quality and extent of their sexual function, including their ability to have erections, orgasm and the quality and frequency of their erections.

The results—published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine—showed that men who reported more frequent exercise (about 18 metabolic equivalents or METS per week; or the equivalent of two hours of strenuous exercise like running or swimming; 3.5 hours of moderate exercise; or six hours of light exercise) had higher sexual function scores. Conversely, men who exercised less reported lower levels of sexual function. 

You heard the scientists; hit the gym!
