Actually 3 orgasms a week is enough to increase happiness and health, and 1 orgasm a day over the course of a year will increase your lifespan.
The benefits of sex become prevalent in male mortality – heart disease, cancer, and environmental causes like stress, suicide and accident. More and more scientists believe that the amount of sex you have can now effect your lifespan.
An article in Mens Journal points out,
“The Johnny Appleseed of the theory is Michael Roizen, a 62-year-old doctor who chairs the Wellness Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.
“For men, the more the better,” he says. “The typical man who has 350 orgasms a year, versus the national average of around a quarter of that, lives about four years longer.” And more than those extra four years, Roizen says, the men will feel eight years younger than their contemporaries. Is there an optimal number of orgasms for the average man? Roizen suggests, with a straight face, that 700 a year could add up to eight years to your life. This is an ambitious prescription: The average American adult male has sex just 81 times a year.”
Now as Gay men we are all familiar with the orgasm. It seems for most of us to be the driving force behind much of the activity we undertake. Sport, gym, nightclubs, parties, doing the washing, taking the cat to the vet and day time TV, all manage somehow and at sometime to induce an orgasm or the opportunity for one. But Puns aside could we be potentially wanking and fucking our way to better health?
In 2003 an Australian study found that Men who ejaculated more than 5 times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer. It keeps your body in balance, positively effecting things like stress, blood pressure, brain chemistry and the reproductive system.
So far from going blind and growing hair on your palms, it would appear that by regularly cleaning out the pipes we are doing ourselves a favor. Masturbation also helps with pre-mature ejaculation. Practise it would seem makes perfect.
So blog buddies enjoy your orgasms and take joy in the fact that each time you blow your load, you are adding years to your life.
