Sex Helps You Look Younger in Later Years, Claims Researcher
Good news for people that enjoy having sex, which I’m guessing is most you. Dr David Weeks, former head of old age psychology at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, has claimed that the secret to looking up to seven years younger is regular sex. He has said that people need to be aware of having healthy sex lives, particularly in their later years. According to Dr. Weeks Sex has a number of different health benefits which can help both men and women look between five and seven years younger. These include the release of the ‘feel good’ chemical endorphin which act as a natural painkiller which aid sleep, exercise gained through the physical nature of sex is good for the heart as it boosts circulation, and it also helps the skin look more elastic and younger by causing the release of the human growth hormone. Dr Weeks said: “My message is that lovemaking is good.” He added that “the stereotype of an elderly person is that when they get their pension and bus pass, they stop having sex and that’s not true. Sexual satisfaction is a major contributor to quality of life, ranking at least as high as spiritual or religious commitment and other morale factors, so more positive attitudes towards mature sex should be vigorously promoted. ” Do the results of this study satisfy you?
