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.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
