Can sex save your life

A study published in the British Medical Journal (1997 Dec.) examined the relationship between frequency of orgasm and mortality. 918 men between the ages of 45 and 59 at the time of recruitment were involved in this cohort study with a ten year follow-up. Researchers found the mortality risk was 50% lower in men with high frequency of orgasm than in men with low frequency. There was evidence of a dose related response. This inverse relationship between orgasm and mortality has been seen n several other studies.

One thing is for sure, there is no risk of overdose for men or women. Although men can injure themselves having too much sex, especially if they use drugs like Viagra. This and similar erectile dysfunction drugs allow men to have more staying power during sexual sessions. This in itself is a double edged sword. Although better staying power is always desirable, having too frequent, or having erections that last too long can result in permanent damage to your johnson.
