We all know that exercise is a very important activity for physical health, but did you know that regular exercise is, perhaps, crucial for your sexual health? Forty-three percent of women and thirty-one percent of men have some form of sexual dysfunction, and obesity and lack of exercise are often the causes of this condition. CNN reports.

One study, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, found that men with a larger waist circumference or higher BMI were 50 percent more likely to have erectile dysfunction, while about half of obese women reported problems with sexual activity and desire for sex, says a study published in Obese.

On the other hand, women who exercised up to six hours a week showed less sexual stress and resistance to intimacy. At least that's what one claims 2021 study. The exercisers also showed higher levels of desire for sex, greater arousal and stronger orgasms.

Sex should not be taboo

"This is a medical problem that we really need to deal with as part of general health and wellness." However, sex is a taboo subject, which it certainly shouldn't be," says Dr. Karin Eilber, a urologist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and an expert on sexual health.

Sex is a significant part of human existence, and its significance is not only in the de-sexualization of our species. Quality sexual activity has a great impact on mental and emotional health, quality of life and strength of intimate relationships. A number of studies confirm this, suggesting that sex and intimacy are important in many aspects of well-being, such as feeling understood and accepted.

Exercise improves circulation and helps ensure a healthy circulatory system. And strong blood flow is the key to excitement. In men, it helps with erection, and in women, it is crucial for the vaginal environment.

When you exercise regularly, you also develop more endurance. This is important for sexual health, because sex is an exercise in itself. A study The National Institutes of Health says that half an hour of sexual activity can burn 125 calories for men and almost 100 calories for women.

Once you establish an exercise routine, you'll feel better and fitter. This, in turn, will improve your self-confidence.

"Nothing is sexier than confidence," says Dr. Eilber.

A 2019 study, published in "Journal of Personality", showed that women show a stronger interest in men with higher self-esteem, whether that self-confidence is innate or acquired.

Better mental health

When you are stressed or anxious/depressed, your libido can decrease. Depression is very often associated with problems with sexual functioning, and the more severe the depression, the worse the problems. According to a 2018 study, published in the Indian Journal of Psychiatry.

Fortunately, exercise is great at combating stress, anxiety, and depression, which can successfully lead to a renewed sex drive. Antidepressants are also known to negatively affect your libido, says Dr. Eilber, and exercise can help you reduce your dose or cut them off altogether.

Start exercising regularly and your overall health will improve. Exercise can even help you prevent serious conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes, whose medications reduce sexual arousal.
