The Latest Health Craze: Sex

In the public interest of my readers, I'd like to point you to this Forbes story on the health benefits of frequent sex.

Men who reported the highest frequency of orgasm enjoyed a death rate half that of the laggards.
But that's not all--frequent sex has also been proven to confer these other benefits:
  • Improved sense of smell
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
  • Weight loss
  • Pain relief
  • Less frequent colds and flu
  • Better bladder control
  • Better prostate health (for men)
  • Increased happiness (duh!)

Go find your partner and tell him or her that you've got a great new doctor-recommended health plan!

Yeah, but being told sex is BAD for you would probably make you want it more. If you've ever gone about conception in a project-managed way, you'll know how the "This is a necessary thing" mindset - no matter how much you may love the boot knocking when it happens - can make it a lot less enjoyable.

If you are "having regular and enthusiastic sex", then isn't it because you have a passion for life and enjoy healthy lifestyle enabling you to engage in sexual activity more often???

I think this study focuses on the wrong thing and mistakes a 'symptom' for a 'cause'.

My basic position is this:

Sex = Good

More Sex = Better
