After years of follow-up investigations, experts from the American Society of Sex Research found that sex is not harmful to the human body. Having sex frequently benefits your physical and mental health. Healthy sex life contributes to increasing life expectancy.
British scientists have conducted a 10-years follow-up survey on 1,000 men and found that men who have sex twice or more a week have a 50% lower chance of premature death than those who have only one or less sex per month. Having sex frequently lowers the risk of coronary artery disease, such as stroke, cerebral thrombosis.
Sex can reduce the risk of breast cancer. Oxytocin and dehydroepiandrosterone in the human body are fully released during orgasm and play a role in protecting the mammary gland. Especially for women who have never been pregnant, high quality and regular sex can make up for their inability to give birth.
Regular sex and masturbation can reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Studies have shown that men who ejaculate 21 times a month can significantly reduce the risk of getting prostate cancer. With an average of 3 ejaculations per week, the incidence of prostate cancer is reduced by 15%.
Last but not least, sex can make a person young. The researchers studied 3,500 people and found that person who had sex twice a week looked 7 years younger than their actual age. And the person who had sex three times a week seem to be 12 years younger than their actual age and can be called as “super young.”
