Can having sex make your life expectancy longer? What do you think? Yes or no?
I’ve recently read an article that claims it is possible. Some Swedish scientists made a study already back in the 80s – they questioned 70 year olds about their habits and the results showed that those that were still having sex made it to 75. Another study done by Duke University followed 252 people over 25 years and the conclusions were similar: “Frequency of intercourse was a significant predictor of longevity.”
Well, it looks like good news. The general message is then – fuck as much as you can. And even if you have problems getting it up due to any medical issues (or non medical), talk to your doctor and get yourself one of these latest pharmaceuticals – Viagra is passé. I’ve heard that Cialis is the answer 😉 You can also try one of those testosterone boosters. They are supposedly based on natural ingredients. It’s worth a try especially if you have a horny and demanding (and younger) partner, gents. (Hmmm… Why do I think about some 60ish or even 70ish rockers like Jimmy Page at the very moment?) Bear in mind, the benefits of sex are a factor in all three categories of male mortality – heart disease, cancer and environmental causes (stress, accident, suicide) – and plenty of scientists are pushing the idea that the more sex you have the longer you’ll live. The Johnny Appleseed of the theory is Michael Roizen, a 62-year-old doctor who chairs the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.
“For men the more the better” Roizen says. “The typical man who has 350 orgasms a year, versus the national average of around a quarter of that, lives about four years longer.” Another advantage is that you will feel some years younger than your contemporaries. Roizen suggests, with a straight face, that 700 a year could add up to eight years to your life. This is an ambitious prescription. Statistics say that the average American adult male has sex just 81 times a year.
Our female protagonist would be delighted to take care of Colin, Tony and Jim in this way after returning to the future. ’Tis almost a noble task, to make them live longer so that they write more music.
