Yesterday I posted about the hot new aphrodisiac heading for market. Today we look at sex from a different perspective. Forbes.Com asks "Is Sex Necessary/"
Well the bottom line of the article is that sex is indeed necessary. Apparently middle aged people like myself who are running the risk of entering all sorts of nasty ailments. All I can say is if there some compassionate female reading this who has a thing for middle aged bloggers that are financially stable, mature, and like kids. I’m looking for someone, hey …email me..I need to be healed!
Here is a bit from the Forbes piece:
Fans of abstinence had better be sitting down.
"Saving yourself" before the big game, the big business deal, the big
hoedown or the big bakeoff may indeed confer some moral benefit. But
corporeally it does absolutely zip. There’s no evidence it sharpens
your competitive edge. The best that modern science can say for sexual
abstinence is that it’s harmless when practiced in moderation. Having
regular and enthusiastic sex, by contrast, confers a host of measurable
physiological advantages, be you male or female. (This assumes that you
are engaging in sex without contracting a sexually transmitted
one of the most credible studies correlating overall health with sexual
frequency, Queens University in Belfast tracked the mortality of about
1,000 middle-aged men over the course of a decade. The study was
designed to compare persons of comparable circumstances, age and
health. Its findings, published in 1997 in the British Medical Journal,
were that men who reported the highest frequency of orgasm enjoyed a
death rate half that of the laggards. Other studies (some rigorous,
some less so) purport to show that having sex even a few times a week
has an associative or causal relationship with the following:
- Reduced risk of heart disease
- Weight loss, overall fitness
- Reduced depression
- Less-frequent colds and flu
- Better bladder control
- Better teeth
- A happier prostate
