5 Sex-excuses to show your love

Live is all about love, relationships and, yes, S.E.X.

That said, we at Hispanic Health & Beauty have decided to give you a special present; we've scoured countless resources and compiled a list of the top five legitimate excuses, or should we say reasons, to have MORE sex.

Excuse #1

It counts as "sexercise"

According to Patti Britton, Ph.D and Author of The Art of Sex Coaching, putting effort into sex burns calories and helps tone muscles such as your arms, butt, legs, and stomach; however, "sexercising" is not a substitute for a regular workout.

Excuse #2

It's an instant mood booster

Skip your morning coffee and try a quickie instead. According to New York State University research, chemical's found in semen such as oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins help give women's moods (and energy levels) a boost.

Excuse #3

t's an immune booster too

A study by Wilkes University in Pensylvania states people having sex one to two times per week have three times as much of a major antibody in their system compared to those who have no or infrequent sex.

Excuse #4

It may save you money on skincare products

That's right. No more buying your healthy, "natural" glow at the cosmetic counter. The increase in circulation, oxygen, and rush of feel-good chemicals released during sex help give your skin a healthy glow. Sadly, this effect is temporary. More of a reason to have more sex?

Excuse #5

It helps enhance your performance

No pun intended and no steroids needed. Researchers have found the increased blood flow to the brain during sex helps sharpen a person's focus and detracts from negative stressors. (By Carolina García)
