Think people have sex just to feel pleasure or get pregnant? Think again. In 2007, researchers identified 237 reasons for having sex. 237!

The researchers split the reasons into groups—physical factors, like stress reduction; goal attainment, like social status; emotional, like love; and insecurity, like duty.

We already know that women can orgasm through multiple ways. Now we know the reasons for wanting to orgasm are just as varied. And that’s a great thing. Being satisfied with your orgasms can actually make you look and feel younger. It boosts healthy circulation and mood! Translation: a gorgeous glow and relaxed smile.
