Want to live better, happier, and longer?
JUST DO IT!
Guys, don’t waste a minute of your life worrying about that headline-making new study that claims more sex in your golden years is a major risk factor for heart attack and stroke.
Supposedly, older men who roll in the hay at least once a week have double the risk of heart attack, heart failure, and stroke of guys who hit the “OFF” switch down below.
Meanwhile, women who “do it” more often face no risk at all… and some of them even get a little heart protection.
Doesn’t that strike you as odd? I sure find it funny — after all, years and years of studies back bedroom activity for older folks as a safe and easy way to cut the risk of heart problems in men and women alike.
A study a few years back even found that older guys who get busy twice a week have nearly HALF the risk of heart problems.
Which one do you believe?
I think I know the answer: BOTH!
Like a lot of long-term studies, the older one used data that stretches way back: a 16-year study that began in 1987.
The newer study that claims sex is a man-killer started a lot more recently, in 2005.
Clearly, something happened between 1987 and 2005 that suddenly made sex more dangerous — but only for men.
Care to guess what?
The first prescription drug for ED was approved in 1998, quickly followed by a host of other sex meds. While industry-backed research claims some of these drugs might help the heart, that’s up for debate.
In reality, these meds have been linked to a host of health problems. In 2003, for example, a study linked that “little blue pill” to a higher risk of stroke — and the label contains a number of warnings and cautions about potential heart risk.
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the rise of “penis pills” from nonexistent into a multibillion-dollar industry is the REAL reason for the link exposed in the new study.
So here’s the real deal: Sex is perfectly safe for most seniors, including heart patients, if you can keep things cooking without some pharmaceutical enhancements.
Just be sure to clear it with your doc first. Don’t be shy about asking — he’s a doctor, not your mother.
Odds are, you’ve got nothing to worry about. And even if you did… is there really a better way to die than “too much sex?”
Talk about going out in style! I bet there’s not a mortician in the world who’d be able to wipe the smile off your face.
