Want to look five-to-seven years younger? Grab your partner, hit the sheets and get busy. According to Telegraph U.K., new research from the Royal Edinburgh Hospital claims regular sex can make women and men look younger. The reasons?

  • Having sex releases endorphins, the "feel good" chemical that acts as a natural painkiller.
  • Sex reduces anxiety and helps with sleep.
  • It also boosts circulation and causes human growth hormone to be released, which makes skin look more youthful and less wrinkled.

Study participants were men and women between the ages of 40 and 50. Those who looked younger in age claimed to have 50% more sex, which on average equates to doing the nasty three times a week rather than twice.
