I know what you're thinking. Who needs to be convinced to have more sex? Not you. Not me. Not the birds or the bees. However, for those of you who need a little arm twisting in the bedroom, you're in luck. Science wants to have its way with you. 

We did our research (a lot of it), and have come to seven sexy conclusions as to why you should be getting down with the get down, pronto.

Brain Power
While feeling horny is scientifically proven to make us dumber, turns out following through with the act will actually make us smarter. Scientists found that indulging in sexual activity regularly leads to better performance on learning and memory tests. A+ for you! 

Erectile Dysfunction
Apparently, men who infrequently do the dirty are twice as likely to experience ED as men who get their sex on once a week or more. Dude... why are you still reading this? Go get your bang on.

Self Esteem
In a relationship? Find yourself saying the words, "not tonight, babe," more than you'd like to admit? Well buck up, fella. Abstaining from sex in a relationship will not only knock your self esteem, but can also create guilt and decreased levels of oxytocin, endorphins and other bonding hormones that are released post coitus. So, feel good about yourself while she's feeling good about you (inside of her).Win, win.

Vaginal Lubricant
As Derek Zoolander once said, "Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty." Well, the same can be said for sex. Sexual experts have pointed out that the lubrication process of arousal benefits from regular sexual activity. That's right, if we don't get some regular P in V action, we're more likely to be dry as the Sahara down there, and that's fun for no one. 

Less Bladder Control
Eeeek. According to health experts, a strong pelvic floor (ew) is necessary for avoiding urinary incontinence. Regular sex strengthens said muscles because when you orgasm they contract and strengthen.

So, let me get this straight. All I have to do is bang it out on a regular basis to not pee myself? Count me in. 

Look + Feel Better
 As if you needed another reason to get it on, turns out sex can actually make you look better. As in, make you even more handsome than you already are. According to Dr. Harry Fisch, author of Size Matters (a v v important piece of literature), "Sex can strengthen your immune system for the day by enhancing your levels of IgA, an antibody that protects from infection." But wait! There's more! "And climaxing releases chemicals that boost levels of estrogen and testosterone, which improve the tone and texture of your skin and hair." Hey, hot stuff. 

Because Sex
 Sex, you guys. Sex

So make like Nike and just do it.
