We have always been told that exercising regularly, getting at least seven hours of sleep every night, eating low-calorie diet and not smoking would help us live longer but there’s something else we need to add to the list.
According to a study by English researchers, making love regularly can help you live longer, a report on Psychology Today claims.
To arrive at this conclusion, the researchers surveyed the sexual frequency of 918 reasonably healthy male in a Welsh village called Caerphilly.
The men were between the ages of 45 to 59 when the study started and the researchers checked back with the men a decade later.
Ten years later, 150 out of the 918 men had died – 67 from heart attack and 83 from other causes.
After the researchers correlated the sexual frequency of the men as reported in the original survey, the researchers found that men who have sex just once a month were less likely to live longer than men who had sex twice a week.
What are your thoughts about the research? Do you believe having more sex can make you live longer?
