Sexy Brains   Leave a comment

Having sex more often improves brain function!

Those who keep their sex life active right through to their golden years were found to have improved fluency and spatial skills, helping in old age, a study by Oxford and Coventry Universities found.

Sex, as I’ve described in my book, Exploring Sex, Love and Lust, releases the ‘feel good’ hormone dopamine into the brain, helping with complex mental tasks. Lead author, Dr Hayley Wright, said: ‘This study shows that more sex at an older age is linked with better brain power …. it is a reminder that it is important to maintain intimate relationships as you age.’ She went on to say, ‘There is still a taboo, where older people don’t want to talk about having sex, and some people don’t want to think about it, but this shows it could be very positive.’

Researchers at Coventry University, in a previous study, found having sex improved older people’s memory – but didn’t look at how often participants had sex. The updated study, published in the Journals of Gerontology, Series B, and reported in the Daily Mail in the UK, asked 73 people aged between 50 and 83, how often they had sex in the previous 12 months – either not at all, or monthly, or weekly.

In tests of their brain power, those who had sex weekly scored 2% higher than those who did every month … and their cognitive abilities were 4% better than those who had been celibate for the past year.

So, clearly, if you want to keep the old brain cells going well into old age, you need to keep up the frequent sex!

Happy love-making,

Good News from Italy   1 comment

Reported in international news today was research on 7,000 men, over 4 years in the Molise region of Italy confirmed that drinking three strong coffees a day cuts the chances of prostate cancer by more than 50%.

Study leader George Pounis, of the Mediterranean Neurological Institute, said: ‘By analysing their coffee consumption habits and comparing them with prostate cancer cases occurring over time, we saw a net reduction of risk of 53% in those who drank more than three cups a day.’

The team confirmed their findings by testing the action of coffee extracts on prostate cancer cells in laboratory studies.

In the UK, prostate cancer in men is the biggest killer after breast cancer in women.

If you’d like a copy of the full report, let me know and I’ll send it to you.

Happy love-making – and survive cancer!

The Wrong Blood   Leave a comment

A study shows that men with blood type A, B or AB are up to four times more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction than men who have blood type O.

It doesn’t alter the fact that smoking, being overweight, and having high blood pressure are thought to be the most important factors, however the study carried out by Ordu University in Turkey suggests your blood type may be as influential.

Researchers took blood samples from 350 men in their sixties and split them into two groups according to whether they had erectile problems. The results revealed men with blood types A, B or AB were three to four times more likely to fail in the bedroom than those with blood type O.

Just 16 per cent with O blood types had problems, compared with 42 per cent of those with blood type A.

If you’re having problems, get checked out – there is help out there.

It’s a Super Healthy Activity – Official   Leave a comment

Have you heard about the ‘Two Week Challenge’? You must have sex every single day for 14 days. This is good for you. Really.

Reported in the Mail on Sunday this morning, Kate Garraway, a presenter on UK ITV, wrote about interviewing her friend who had just spent two weeks in Paris, doing The Challenge, with her husband! It doesn’t matter where you do it, in the bedroom, in the kitchen, in the cupboard, on the stairs – just don’t miss a day. For two weeks.

Studies carried out in Israel showed that women who had two orgasms a week were almost a third less likely to have heart disease. Another study at Queens University, Belfast, found that having sex 3 times a week could slash your heart attack and stroke risk.

It is a super healthy activity.

There is now evidence that it improves your cognitive function and appears to ward off dementia.

What have I been banging on about all these years?!

Happy Love-Making.

More semen   Leave a comment

Men in a new relationship produce more semen and healthier sperm, compared with men seeing a woman long-term. This was suggested in the journal Evolutionary Psychological Science; the thinking behind this statement is that it is a tactic by the male body to ensure their sperm competes with other sperm to fertilise an egg.

Happy Love-Making.

Coital Orgasms   8 comments

Yesterday’s news told us about a US study of six women! SIX women? Any study for research should involve thousands before coming to any realistic conclusion!
But I have to agree with their findings on this one – they found that having an orgasm during sex could boost fertility by 15%. Writing in Sociaffective Neuroscience & Psychology, the researchers said: ‘It appears female orgasm does perform some sort of sperm-retention function.’

This ‘retention’ was explained by me in 2008. Vaginal spasms during orgasm create a ‘sucking’ movement by the vagina making tenting shapes. Any man fortunate, and sensitive enough, will tell you that he feels as though he is being held, or sucked, in during this very satisfying period – for both partners.

Happy love-making.
