Does More Sex Equal a Longer Life?
It's one of the best sounding ways to increase lifespan. And one that most men are more than willing to take on. One study has shown that flossing every night adds two years and three years by having more than three orgasms a week. As it turns out the benefits of sex are a factor in all three categories of male mortality: heart disease, cancer, and environmental causes such as stress, accidents, and suicide.
Michael Roizen who chairs the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic stated that, "For men, the more the better. The typical man who has 350 orgasms a year, versus the national average of around a quarter of that, lives about four years longer. Roizen also goes on to say that beyond those extra four years men will feel eight years younger than their contemporaries. What's the optimal according to Roizen? 700 a year which could add 8 years to your life. Which is incredibly ambitious: the average American male has sex just 81 times a year. Researches in Wales found that men who had orgasms two or more times a week died at a rate half that of men who orgasmed less than once a month.
While skeptics argue that these studies don't prove the premise that sex will lengthen life argue that maybe it's the healthier people who orgasm. Science even makes the case that good marriages improve men's longevity. (Good news for all those husbands out there!) Sex even as little as once or twice a week also increases immunoglobulin levels by 30% which increases your ability to fight infection and disease.
For men, sex three times a week on average has shown to make them appear seven to twelve years younger than their actual ages. A good thing to keep in mind for the next high school reunion.
The studies vary a bit for women, women were found to gain 3-6 years of quality sex life by staying healthy. For both men and women, sex leads to more sex (shocker there). It has shown to improve bladder control for women as well as lowering blood pressure, counts as exercise, orgasms can block pain receptors, and improves sleep and eases stress.
Whether or not sex does lengthen life it does tend to lead to a healthier life and vice versa.
