5 Ways to Fight the Flu and Cold Season with Sex #fluseason #fightacold #sexhealth

It's that time of year when everyone seems to be getting sick. With the dreary winter bringing on sickness and more time spending indoors, it's the perfect time for cuddling and, arguably, more time for sex... and all the benefits of sex. Winter sex can actually help fight the cold and flu season, and it's a great way to save on heating bills without freezing your butt off. So if you're trying to stave off the inevitable sore throat or you're already sick and hoping for sexual healing, here's five ways that getting it on can combat seasonal sickness.

Sex boosts your immune system

Countless studies have proven that some time between the sheets can strengthen your immune system, and you'll need to be as strong as you can be in order to battle the seasonal germs.

Sex decreases stress

Along with increasing immunity, sex also decreases stress and you'll sleep better. Stress levels are known to be a huge factor in determining whether you catch a cold or not. The less stress you have, the easier it is to ward off the cold that's been making its rounds.

Sex helps relieve pain

Despite all your health improving habits, you can't stop a stranger from coughing or sneezing in your direction. So if you get sick, don't use that as an excuse to stop getting it on. Sex has been proven to reduce pain, and that's exactly what you need when your head is pounding and your sinuses are oozing. Of course you'd need a partner-in-crime that's already sick so that you don't worry about spreading the germs.

Sex improves your mood

It's a bit of a downer to know that any moment you could catch a bug. So what's the perfect antidote? Yep... sex! The flood of happy hormones (endorphins) that getting busy brings on, will help you battle the next couple months dodging flu-infested zombies.

Sex improves fitness

It's no treadmill or elliptical, but sex certainly is a form of exercise... which has been shown to help prevent both colds and the flu. If you're having sex on a regular basis, it boosts your heart rate and uses various muscles.
