Frequent sex is fun only for men
• Frequent sex is fun only for men
British researchers found that men have higher sexual activity leads to an increase in feelings of life satisfaction, but this is not true for women. They soon brings the satisfaction of emotional intimacy with your partner, as well as the affection and kisses.
In the study summarized the data on an anonymous survey of seven thousand residents of the UK aged 50 to 89 years. Due to the old age of the participants, as a high sexual activity accounted intimacy at least 2 times per month. The researchers examined the effect of sexual activity on the well-being, which in turn is interconnected with the general positive indicators of health status.
In previous work, scientists have identified a wide range of benefits for psychological and physical well-being resulting from an active sex life. This improvement in quality of life and strengthen the mental health and even reduce the risk of some cancers. Although the current study, women reported an increase in feelings of life satisfaction in connection with sexual activity, however, previous data indicate a correlation between sexual contentment and longevity. Therefore, scientists believe that the promotion of an active sex life in middle age can benefit not only individuals, but also to the health care system as a whole.
However, it should be noted that in the course of human sexual activity is reduced. For example, according to the figures of the study, conducted in 2016, 94% of respondents 50-60 years reported on the continuation of the sexual life, but for the group of respondents older than 80 years, this figure dropped to 31%.
Furthermore, we recognize that can not be due to the anonymous nature of the survey precisely identify whether the cause of frequent sex enhance the feelings of life satisfaction, or vice versa, hedonists are prone to more frequent sex.
