Here are just some of the specific
ways in which being in love - and making love to the person you love - can help
to change your body for the better:
1. Love can help you look younger by
keeping your skin soft and smooth and by reducing your chances of developing
wrinkles and other skin disorders.
2. Regular kissing can make your lips
more attractive and more kissable! Being in love can give your lips extra colour
and improves their shape.
3. Love can help to reduce your chances of
suffering badly when you are under stress or when things go wrong. Sex can calm
you down and help to make you less irritable and less impatient. Sex can help
you to combat indigestion and other stress-related stomach disorders. Loving and
being loved helps to vaccinate you against stress and anxiety and distress, and
helps to make you less emotionally brittle and susceptible to depression.

of your breasts. If you are a man being in love and making love can help keep
your sexual equipment in tiptop condition!

and attractive. When our pupils are enlarged we look far more attractive to
other people. Look at pictures used in advertisements and you will usually see
that the models have large pupils! (When men are shown two pictures of the same
woman - one with small pupils and one with enlarged pupils - they almost always
prefer the picture with the large pupils!)
8. Being aroused and in love can
contract the muscles around your nipples! Love can also increases the blood flow
into them - making them stand up and look larger.

and health of your heart.

and give you more self-assurance.

nibbling when you aren't really hungry and so can help to stop you putting on
extra weight you don't want.

suffering from painful joints. It may even help you get rid of aches and pains.
