Scientists claim that men are more aroused by revealing pictures of women during colder months than they were during the summer.

Scientists also say that cold air also improves sperm quality - explaining the higher birth-rates during this period and a general sense of more attraction during this period.

Whatever, be the reason, we list reasons why winter is the best time to get intimate with your partner.

It could lower his risk of prostate cancer: According to a study conducted by the Harvard Medical School, men who ejaculated more often reduced their risk of developing prostate cancer by 22 percent. Researchers still don't know what is the reason behind it, but if sex is the way to avoid it, then why not!

Chance of getting a cold goes down: According to researchers at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania, people who had sex at least twice a week released more antigens like immunoglobulin which helps fight off colds and flu.

It keeps you looking super young and confident: A Scottish researcher and clinical neuropsychologist David Weeks found that the people whose age was underestimated by seven to 12 years were also reporting having sex three times a week, in comparison to those who were less frequent

It'll help get rid of menstrual cramps: A 2000 study found that 9 percent study done in 2000 found that 9 percent of 1,900 women were masturbating solely to get rid of their menstrual cramps. There's no way that many masturbating women are wrong.

It makes women more fertile: A new study in Fertility and Sterility found that having sex every day could help prepare your immune system for pregnancy, which is critical in terms of increasing your chances of having a baby.

Lowers blood pressure and ability to stress out: A 2005 study found that people who had penile-vaginal intercourse had lower blood pressure and better stress responses than people who didn't.

Sex can actually make one more intelligent: Several studies by researchers at the University of Maryland and Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea, found that mice and rats who had sex more often were also less stressed. A de-stressed mind makes people more intelligent thinkers.

Cuddling chances increase: Cuddling is an option during summer, after sex, as both partners are sticky and hot. But in the winter, you’re probably going to want to get your cuddle on.  In the winter, one is more likely to cuddle post sex because it's a great way to stay warm.

Sex in socks:  A 2013 study from University of Groningen in the Netherlands found that 80 percent of women who took part in the study had orgasms when manually stimulated by a partner if they were wearing socks compared to 50 percent when barefoot.
