5 Instant Benefits of Sex

Cameron Diaz told British Vogue that one of her secrets to looking young is "lots of sex."

She's onto something: women who enjoy sex live longer than those who don't. Fit may have you covered on the long-term, health benefits of sex, but we wanted to know what will sex do for our minds, moods, and relationships — right now. So here are five instant benefits of sex.

  1. Energy: Too tired to get out of bed? Maybe you need a wake-up call, though this also could have the opposite effect.
  2. Self-confidence: Nothing can make you feel more loved, more attractive, and more alive than sex therapy.
  3. Distraction: Whether your mind is ahead of yourself or behind, sex can bring it back to the here and now.
  4. Romance: Even if you're not having make-up sex, sex can make a couple feel more intimate for hours after.
  5. Comfort: Forget comfort food! If you're in a relationship, sex can remind you that all is well.

I think she looks great for her 30s, although Isla Fisher looks much better in her 30s. Yes CD is getting older, so what, even celebs get old. Its better to age gracefully than to go to a plastic surgeon and desperately hang onto your youth.
