As per a research study conducted by researchers in the University of Texas, exercise helps to have stronger erection in men and greater arousal for women.
Sexual activity is nothing short of an exercise. The Mayo Clinic compares a bout of sexual intercourse to climbing two or three flights of stairs. And a study by the National Institutes of Health says a half-hour of sexual activity can burn 125 calories for men and nearly 100 for women, similar to walking at a 3 mile-per-hour pace.
