“Research carried out by the State University of New York recently suggested that B.J’s can have a whole host of health benefits. The news had men everywhere celebrating. But it seems that women also have cause for joy now as some parallel research conducted suggests that cunnilingus has plenty of its own advantages, for both men and women.
The research monitored more than 150 straight and lesbian couples, 75 of which were told to concentrate heavily on oral in their s*x lives, 75 of which were told to not to. The results show a notable difference in stress and anxiety levels, as well as sleep quality and intimacy levels (in and out of the bedroom).
The health benefits can be very real, though. Going down encourages her to produce hormones like oxytocin and DHEA, which have been proven to have protective effects against diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
The research also points to the sedative effect of the release of oxytocin and other endorphins, meaning it’s the perfect way to encourage sleep for those that suffer from insomnia or restless nights. The study additionally claims that these hormones can even relieve migraine headaches.
All these health benefits are there for the person performing the act too, so it’s good for both of you!”
