REGULAR SEX BOOSTS MENTAL HEALTH, PSYCHIATRIST TELLS WOMEN

Kadiri, the Medical Director of Pinnacle Medical Services gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

According to her, sex is not just to nourish a woman’s body, it is also beneficial for her mental health.

“Studies have shown that women who have more active sex and are in long-term relationships are less likely to be depressed than women who go without sex.

“So, more sex is important and essential. It is a remedy for persistent headache in women.

“Low sexual drive, which leads to depression, should be looked into. A woman can be depressed when her sexual drive drops.

“Frequent sex can play a role in women’s sense of well being and quality of life,’’ Kadiri said.

She explained that sex was not just for procreation, adding that it could create bonding, good companionship and sound sleep.

Kadiri, popularly called ‘celebrity shrink’, urged women dealing with depression to frequently indulge in sex, as it  boosts their self-esteem.

She also advised women who are over-weight to consider having an active sexual life, as it boosts their endorphins levels. Endorphins are happy hormones.

“Orgasms trigger the release of endorphins which are happy hormones secreted by the brain that act as effective painkillers,’’ she said.
