Rupert Mudoch's influence is permeating the pages of the The Wall Street Journal. Just this week Melinda Beck wrote an article on the benefits of sex She wondered if sex is good for your health or just a fantasy.
I wondered the same thing and wrote a blog posting on it a few months back. Here's what I found.
It's time to throw out your prescription meds. Science is proving that a good old-fashioned roll in the hay is the best way to cure all of your ills.
There are at least 25 health related problems, from the common cold to high blood pressure, that can be helped by lots of hot and heavy sex.
Here's the short version of the list. To find out all of them head over to Nerds Do It Better.
Depression: Without the help of researchers, just about anyone can agree that sex will make you feel good about yourself and just a bit more confident. But one researcher has said there’s a scientific explanation that goes a bit farther. Professor Gordon Gallop says that there’s an unknown chemical in semen that has an antidepressant effect on women.
Headaches:: Although sex can sometimes bring on a headache, it can cure them too. The tension release your body experiences during and after sex can ease restricted blood vessels in the brain.
Arthritis:: In his book, “How to Treat Arthritis with Sex and Alcohol,” rheumatologist Carter V. Multz asserts that sex, as well as alcohol and other complementary treatments, can reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with arthritis.
Common Cold: Manfred Schedlovski, a Swiss researcher from Zurich, asserts that sex has a positive effect on phagocytes, which are a part of the immune system that goes after alien bodies, like cold germs, and kills them. Phagocytes are increased significantly during sex, and will often double after orgasm.
Weak Bones and Muscles: Sex brings on a boost of testosterone, which helps to make your bones and muscles strong.
Why not ramp up your sex life and see if you feel better. It's the only way to test the theories.
