We should remember the benefits of practicing carnal love. A recent study conducted in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Austria and published in the journal Journal of Sexual Medicine, returns to the usual topic, but with forceful news: sexual activity reduces the risk of mortality in various pathologies, the authors agree. And it is possible that the first symptoms of these diseases are related to lack of practice.
“Previous research has suggested that having sex is good for your health, quality of life and general well-being. However, it had not been studied whether there was a relationship between sexual activity and mortality, ”said François Peinado, a surgeon specializing in prostate and sexual medicine, and one of the study’s authors.
The conclusions arise from analyzing and comparing information on the sexual behavior of 15,269 people between 20 and 59 years old (men and women) collected in the period from 2005 to 2016 by the last National Health and Nutrition Examination (Nahnes) of the States. United. Respondents answered questions over 12 months, and upon reviewing the mortality rate surveyed during the same period, scientists found, among other conclusions, that “approximately 7% of respondents had confessed to having a sexual relationship or not at all; and for 14%, sexual activity occurred 104 or more times during the previous year, explains the doctor in the report.
“Upon closer analysis, the researchers found that frequent sex was associated with lower all-cause mortality in a dose-response fashion. The rates of deaths related to cardiovascular diseases and cancer were lower for those who had sex at least 52 times a year, compared to those that had once a year or not at all ”.
Scientists agree on the foundations of this new conclusion, and that is that sex is a physical exercise and counts as such, that is, if we do sports or some frequent activity we could already be helping to reduce the possibility of contracting certain diseases. Sex is a “pre-physical” activity, an important warm-up that stimulates the secretion of endorphins that promote the feeling of happiness. Something like jogging on the treadmill or doing a Zumba class. With that we have already collaborated in a part. The emotional question would be missing, but that’s another kind of exercise. “It is possible that the first symptoms of some diseases are related to a decrease in sexual activity before the diagnosis of the condition,” the researchers add to the publication.
Presumably, the case refers to sex with someone, that is, onanism would not count within the benefit, although it is true that solitary sex also generates happiness, half, but happiness in the end.
