Sex Can Reduce Fever
Sex is also a pain reliever, ten times more effective than Valium. Just immediately before orgasm, levels of the hormone oxytocin rise by five times, releasing endorphins. These chemicals can calm pain, from a minor headache to arthritis or migraines, and with no secondary effects. Migraines also disappear because the pressure in the brain’s blood vessels is lowered during sex. So now we see that actually, a woman’s headache is rather a good reason for having sex, not against it.
