Sex and Exercise Research
It’s no secret that exercise leads to better sex, not only for men, for women as well. Those are the findings of Lia Jiannine, Ph.D., and Assistant Professor of Exercise and Sport Science at Nova Southeastern University, whose research is in the area of the relationship between exercise and sexual functioning. She explains the scale used to measure five categories of sexual functioning, and how strength training and cardio exercises can help. Dr. Jiannine also mentions that, sometimes sexual dysfunction is a symptom of underlying cardiovascular disease and may mean the person has an increased risk of a heart attack or stroke.
