A study from Northern Illinois University states that BDSM style sex–bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, and sadism/mascochism (the good stuff if that’s what you’re into), has a really great benefit for your body by decreasing your stress levels.

The nature of the sexual activities presents pleasure in altered states of consciousness, thus making the experience more enjoyable bringing your overall anxiety to an all-time low in the best way possible. 

Researcher observed couples in a bottom (submissive) and top (dominant) BDSM scene who say that the “flow” associated with the kinky sex resulted in better moods, lower stress levels and higher sexual satisfaction.
