A Small Something about Sexual Wellness and “Vitamin O”…Orgasm!

Written by Robin Khan

Vitamin O’ is not only beneficial for sexual wellness, it is likely to have health benefits in many areas. If not directly, then at least indirectly.

When we consider traditional health boosters in the name of “general wellness” there are many widely recommended points of entry: Physical exercise, a plethora of skin serums, solid friendships, a keen mentor, an army of vitamins, and the occasional Brené Brown novel.

Alternatively: there’s ‘vitamin O’—which, among other benefits, is theorized to bolster your immune system. An orgasm at large has medicinal qualities and as we continue to face the subsequent fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, masturbation, in particular, is of the essence. It is marvelously beneficial in its self-sufficiency (and thus its compliance with quarantine mandates;), it’s easy to fit into your schedule because now you’re only planning around YOU, it’s good for morale (“what up!” to month 31007 of working from home).

That’s before we even get to the vascular and immune-advantages—of which there are many. Let’s start with Hormone Health: You know that sense of release that comes from, well….from coming? You’re exactly right, it’s real! Orgasm is a natural anxiety reducer. That zen feeling we experience comes from a decrease in our cortisol levels.

Cortisol is the hormone most commonly associated with stress. A decrease in cortisol, in turn, can work both as a sleep aid and to ease an overloaded workday. The love hormone oxytocin also increases during orgasm.

Oxytocin may also have benefits as a treatment for many conditions, including depression, anxiety, and intestinal problems. Then that little extra something I personally value, it can add some luster to your face as peripheral vasodilation enhances nutrients for the skin…

Then there’s Sleep: Another thing about the aforementioned stress-reducers: they’re great for sleep. The occasional bedtime orgasm and the calm it produces is excellent for promoting a healthy rest—which, in turn, works wonders to keep your immune system working to its maximum capacity. Heart health: Sexual pleasure is also good for your vascular system.

A healthy orgasm serves to spike both blood pressure and heart rate. Just like any other form of cardio, it releases endorphins, burn calories, and can lower the risk of a heart attack. Keeping your sexual organs healthy is much like going to the gym….it is something that needs regular attention to be sustained.

In other words…regular orgasms keep the blood flowing to your privates and that alone likely serves to produce neuro-vascular patency. Now the currently relevant part, immunity….something at the forefront of conversation during the “Covid years”.

Studies on orgasms from masturbation have shown that active orgasms can increase your white blood cell production, which means, there is a direct correlation between orgasmic activity, and your body’s ability to combat diseases. And, I would say, it is far more pleasurable than popping a handful of vitamins B, C, D and zinc.

While the medical community is only beginning to investigate the value of ramping up the frequency of orgasms as a go to for an immune boost, there are hardly any downsides to adding the occasional ‘vitamin O’ to your daily vitamin regimen…even if you have to do it on your own.

Your body, your mind, and your soul will no doubt thank you for the more restful sleep, the glowing skin, the stress relief and…the pleasure.

What should we expect from a sexual experience and orgasm throughout our lifetime?

Written by Robin Khan

At Sakoon the Spa, we believe that, at any age, being comfortable and confident with one’s sexuality is essential to complete wellness of body, mind, and soul. It is also our experience that anyone can achieve a fulfilling sexual relationship no matter their age or perceived limitations.

At Sakoon, we are all about maximizing your physical condition to promote the most satisfying sexual experience possible for you and your partner.

Sexual encounters don’t always have to end in climax for one or both partners, but that is usually the desired outcome for both. An orgasm generally lasts about 10 seconds or less but tends to take up an abundance of space in our collective consciousness. For good reason.

Psychologically, a sexual experience and subsequent climax translate into a release of happy-making neurotransmitters—dopamine and serotonin, which contribute to our moods, energy level, appetite, and a general sense of well-being. Simply put, it may just be 10 seconds, but it’s a really good 10 seconds.

Not all orgasms are equal: A 2014 study showed that men have a higher rate of orgasm than women, and that doesn’t change with sexual orientation. But who is having the best orgasms?

A 2005 study reported that a small, but not insignificant, 14-percent of women under the age of 35 have never had an orgasm as a result of intercourse (and a considerable 38-percent experienced climax only inconsistently). So it’s not too shocking that, as The Independent shared in 2017, the results of a survey by the app Natural Cycles showed that participants, women ages 36 and older, reported better and more frequent orgasms than they had earlier in life (younger participants not only reported fewer orgasms but also lower sexual frequency).

These findings might not be purely scientific, but they are evidence that getting older can actually result in a better, more fulfilling sex life. “Aging like a fine wine” is right—especially when you pair that wine with some candlelight and a good playlist.😉

For men, however, orgasms become more difficult over time—figuratively, not literally. According to researchers at the University of Chicago, men between the ages of 50 to 59 are over three times as likely to experience erectile dysfunction than those between the ages of 18 and 29.

According to Psychology Today, the more common issue is erectile dissatisfaction: The simple fact that it may take longer, or require a little more effort to achieve an erection, can lead to some mental blocks which may translate into difficulty reaching climax.

Good sex later in life—for both men and women—is hardly out of reach, in spite of physical challenges like decreased libido, menopause, erectile dysfunction or ED. According to a survey by Match.com, women aged 66 and men aged 64 reported having their best sex later in life.

The University of Michigan’s 2018 National Poll on Healthy Aging similarly found that 74-percent of participants aged 65 to 80 consider sex an important part of a romantic relationship at any age. These studies, however, do not define sex as something that necessarily ends in climax, for one or both parties.

We are here to help you maximize your sexual experiences throughout your lifetime. At Sakoon we offer sexual enhancement services for both men and women.

The O-Shot and Mona Lisa are non-surgical modalities for women that enhance neuro-vascular health. These treatments increase the lubrication, sensation, and size of genitalia.

When combined with hormonal balancing, the drive and performance potential are treated in synchrony. These modalities are recommended for women who are postpartum, perimenopausal or simply suffering from poor sexual drive or satisfaction.

For men, Sakoon offers the P-shot combined with low-intensity shock wave therapy designed at increasing the vascularity of the penis to increase firmness, size, and sensation. Combined with testosterone hormone balancing, substantial increases in performance and drive are usually obtained.

Want to know more information from one of our Nurse Practitioners? Give us a call at 531-466-8200 and we would be happy to assist you in any other questions about sexual health services we offer at Sakoon The Spa.
