Exercise for Sexual Health
Updated: Oct 12, 2019
Numerous studies have shown that exercise leads to better physical, emotional and sexual health. Moreover, exercise promotes a positive body image and reduces stress. Stress can cause the body to produce cortisol, which lowers testosterone levels. This affects libido in both men and women. Exercise reduces cortisol levels and increases testosterone, which boosts libido and helps build muscle mass. Always consult your physician before beginning a new exercise program.
