Improving Your Health With Sex by Fawnia

When we think of medical research on sex, transmitted diseases and sexual dysfunction may come to mind. Let's set aside syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV/AIDS, impotence and frigidity and move towards a positive view on sex.

Sex is probably one of the most common, and certainly most pleasurable, activities we humans experience. Though only a handful of studies exist to help us understand and enhance the health benefits, we do know that sex is essential for the survival of the species.

A study on aging from Duke in the 1970s found that for men the frequency of sexual intercourse was associated with lower death rates. For women the enjoyment of intercourse was associated with longer life.

A Swedish study found increased risk of death in men who gave up sexual intercourse.

A study published in 1976 found that sexual dissatisfaction was a risk factor for heart attacks in women. Now a new study published in the esteemed British Medical Journal offers more good news. The findings suggest that men who have frequent sex are less likely to die at an early age.

An intrepid group of researchers from Great Britain included a question about sexual activity in a long-term study of health. The authors studied nearly 1000 men aged 45 to 59 and living in or near Caerphilly, Wales. The men were asked about the frequency of sexual intercourse. They were divided into three groups: those who had sex twice or more a week, an intermediate group, and those who reported having sex less than monthly.

A decade later, researchers found that the death rate from all causes for the least sexually active men was twice as high as that of the most active. The death rate in the intermediate group was 1.6 times greater than for the active group. A similar pattern of longevity and frequency of orgasm was found for all causes of death, coronary heart disease, and other causes.

Of course many questions arise with this type of study. Does the frequency of orgasm cause the improved health? Does poor health cause lower sexual activity? Or does some other factor such as physical activity, alcohol, depressed mood, or "vital exhaustion" cause both poor health and less sexual activity? The researchers did find that strength of the results persisted even after adjusting for differences in age, social class, smoking, blood pressure, and evidence of existing coronary heart disease at the initial interview. This suggests a more likely protective role of sexual activity.

To quote the researchers:

The association between frequency of orgasm and mortality in the present study is at least -- if not more -- convincing on epidemiological and biological grounds than many of the associations reported in other studies and deserves further investigation to the same extent.

Intervention programs could also be considered, perhaps based on the exciting, "At least five a day" campaign aimed at increasing fruit and vegetable consumption -- although the numerical imperative may have to be adjusted. More research is needed. Any volunteers?

Since the overall death rate was reduced 36% for an increase of 100 orgasms per year, one could easily imagine a new prescription for health:

Rx: Sexual Intercourse at least 2 times per week.

Such a prescription might have few side effects and would be far more pleasurable than many other regiments often prescribed. And even if sex doesn't prove to add years to life, it may add life to years.

Remember, if she says, "Why now, George?" Just tell her that your Doc prescribed it... not for fun, mind you, but solely for mutual therapy. And ladies, you can tell him the same thing if he's asking "Why now, Sarah?"

If you feel that your partner needs a kick start, I suggest:
