Coitus (Sex) reduces risk of heart disease.
And numerous studies have shown that an active sex life,
is closely correlated with a longer life.
Specifically, it seems like sex may lower the risk for heart attacks, strokes, and other heart diseases.
…Its results suggested that regular sexual activity may reduce heart disease risk.
However, Women with higher frequency of orgasms during intercourse live longer!
Medical literature sides with the British study,
and two other studies show that greater sexual frequency is associated with healthier, longer life.
Swedish researchers studied 392 elderly residents of
Gothenburg (166 men, 226 women) from age 70 until 75.
There was a significant association between death and cessation of sexual activity.
In another study, researchers compared the sex lives of 100 women who’d had heart attacks and 100 who hadn’t.
Prior to their heart attacks, the women with heart disease
had been much less satisfied with their sex lives.
Why would sex prolong life? There are several possible explanations:
• Frequent coitus means an intimate relationship.
Many studies show that close personal ties enhance health and extend longevity.
• coitus is exercise, and regular exercise is a cornerstone of health.
• Frequent coitus improves immune function.
At Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania,
researchers surveyed 111 young adults about their frequency of partner coitus,
and then tested their saliva for a key component of the immune system, immunoglobulin A (IgA).
Compared with participants who reported partner coitus less than once a week,
those who had sex once or twice a week had significantly higher IgA levels.
This research adds new spin to the slogan Nike uses to promote its sneakers: “Just do it”.
Yes, do it. Sex is good for you—and it just might prolong your life.
