According to a study conducted at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the benefits of exercise to improve erectile and sexual function are aplenty.

Nearly 300 participants monitored their activity levels, which were later categorized as sedentary, mildly active, moderately active or highly active, by the study researchers.

The results revealed that men who exercised more frequently had higher sexual function scores.
