Is having a lot of sex potentially harmful to my husband because of his age?
Apparently men who climax twice a week are half as likely to die prematurely as men who only climax once a month.
I am a 31 year old woman. My husband is 50 and we have been married for 8 months. We have sex regularly and we enjoy it. Is having a lot of sex potentially harmful to my husband because of his age?
Absolutely not - on the contrary, it’s great for him! It’s been suggested that as frequent male orgasm drains the body of seminal fluid, it can help a man avoid both congestive prostatis (inflammation of the prostate gland) and prostate cancer.
An orgasm is said to be the equivalent in exercise of a vigorous jog, meaning it’s giving us a good cardiovascular workout by raising the heart rate, and improving overall muscle tone and circulation. Feel-good endorphins are also released when we climax - reducing anxiety, blood pressure, stress levels and even pain. (What’s not to like?) The British Medical Journal has taken it a stage further by stating that the more orgasms you have, the longer you’re likely to live. Apparently men who climax twice a week are half as likely to die prematurely as men who only climax once a month.
Your husband can stock up his sperm supplies by increasing his fluid intake and eating foods rich in zinc, which is essential for sperm formation, prostate health and the production of testosterone. Good sources include red meat, poultry, crab, shellfish, pumpkin seeds, eggs, peanuts and wholegrain cereals.
