We know that it is super-difficult to give up the pleasure of eating those cheesy pizzas and binge-watching Netflix to get your lazy ass off that couch and work out. Unfortunately, it becomes even tougher to get into action and hit the gym after having a hectic day at work.

But you know what? While avoiding exercise and giving in to your guilty pleasures, there are other pleasures in life that you might be depriving yourself of.

Yes, ladies. According to various studies, working out can improve your sex life and make the experience even more pleasurable for you. Here's how:

Exercise Can Make You Enjoy Sex Even More
Yes, sex could already be all fun and great for you, but what if we told you that it is possible to make it even more pleasurable? Excited already? Well, researchers at the University of Texas at Austin found that the vaginal responses of women were 169 percent greater after exercising. At least now you need to stop being lazy, ladies.
