After a hard stressful day its seems that a good old orgasm is what us women need in order to relax and take the stresses away – an orgasm a day keeps the stress away, or so one of the mothers on my Facebook group thinks, when she posted the following, I had to chuckle;

What do you think ladies? Does an orgasm a day keep the stress away?
