Regular Sex “Halves Heart Attacks”


A study has found that regular sex may drastically reduce the risk of heart attacks in men.

American researchers at the New England Research Institute investigated the sexual activity of 1,000 men aged 40-70 over a 16 year period, culminating in the publication of a study in the American Journal of Cardiology which found a clear link between regular sex and a reduced risk of heart disease.

Men having sex at least twice a week were found to have almost half the risk of developing heart disease than their less active counterparts. The study did not assess any effects on women.

Researchers speculate that regular sex is healthy both for its physical and emotional benefits – cardiovascular health is improved by sexual exertions, and previous studies have demonstrated that men in supportive relationships tend to be healthier.

Although neither of these benefits are likely to boost the health of committed onanists, other research provides consolation: ejaculating more than 5 times a week, whether through sex or masturbation, has previously been found to dramatically reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

    This is a clear case of causation/correlation confusion that's endemic in scientific research.

    Topic should have been stated this way instead:

    "Healthy males have 50% less risk of cardiac problems. Oh, and by the way, they have more sex too."

    In other news: 100% of people who have cancer once walked on sidewalk cracks.

    You can cure AIDS by licking your own elbows three times a day.

    Not another one of these speculative studies...

    These people need to realize the age old mantra that correlation is not causation.

    Of course women are more likely to choose men who are healthy to have sex with over men who are unhealthy. That doesn't necessarily lower one's chances of having a heart attack now does it.

    Women also choose to have sex with tall men more than short men. There's no reason to believe that having sex will make you taller.

    Some scientists are just fail.

    Done and done! Prostate cancer's off the list of things to worry about. That just leaves, let's see... everything diet-related. Including heart attacks. Fuck.

    someone mentioned that having sex as a man with more then just 1 women reduces impotence,it was a russian study i think.But it was deleted and can't be found since somebody is definativly afraid to let out the truth about male sexuality.
    Well in nature the dominant male really has sex with several females.But today we have problems with stds and aids.
    I wonder if we can beat that with all the different hentai we check?

    probably because those men just aren't attracted to their woman anymore? They should probably try new things

    If they had related it somehow to people who do not have sex and workout a lot and/or people who have sex and do regular workout their study would be of any worth elswhise they just have proven that cardio workout is good for your cardiological health what is why we call it that way already (given that you exert yourself physically during intercourse).
    Not as half as a fail as when american scientists found out that regular sleeping increases work efficiency but nevertheless fail it is.

    there was also a study which found that more regular sex is good for grades of students but they overlooked that the students that had more sex also made more fitness training...

    old news is FRIKKIN OLD

    anyway, like it has been said many times in the comments above me, it's not the fact of having sex which halves heart attacks, it's to ejaculate a certain number of times a week.

    So rejoice, ronery men : you won't die from a heart-attack, unless somebody throws your name in a notebook

    In other news, the broad range of cardiovascular exercises, from swimming to aerobics to jogging to bicycling to skiing to any goddamned sport (as well as sex), will reduce the likelihood of heart attacks and other heart-related illnesses.

    There is something special about having sex which any other god dammed sport can't give you.

    That special something doesn't fall within the purview of decreasing the likelihood of heart attacks. So, why did you completely miss my statement and decide to be wry with your comment?

    i hope these fucking doctors die of cancer, i hate surveys -_- they have no proof! its just speculation from a fucking survey, the human species must die! I'm tired of them spreading their lies, they try to push men and woman together all the damn time.

    If i could choose my own species i would drop Human in a flash, i would rather be a spec of dust, at least it has more significance in life, Humans are Garbage, worthless piles of trash, yes that includes me also for being part of such a weak ass species.

    I hope the world is destroyed, because when shit hits the fan, nobody will be their to shield you. I'll die with a smile on my face knowing everyone else is dieing along with me, you can cry all you want to you're worthless imaginary gods, Worthless piles of trash! >:O

    PS: this was a very nice post. ^_^

    How often do you think fat people have sex seriously? People who have sex more regularly are mostly those who are not overweight.

    How could you lot compare masturbation to sex? Masturbation is nothing compared to sex. It's not even close to sex with condom. Sex with an actual partner is much more intense. There are feelings you'll never feel through masturbation.

    Late breaking news release from the "Onion Institute for Statistische Wissenschaft":

    An extensive, multi-decade, analysis of over 9000 studies of various kinds has led to the irrefutable determination that Correlation DOES equal Causation.

    Thousands of smart-ass blog commenters are in shock, forced to fall back on "first" and "wtf" and "LOL" for their posts.

    More on this profoundly transformative development as events develop.

    In this thread idiots who have learned to parrot "correlation does not mean causation" and think that researchers don't know this profound secret.

    Also, hopefully this study will lead to doctors prescribing sex as a preventive for strokes and heart attacks in addition to blood thinners and beta blockers. Best of all, maybe health insurance ( of interest to Americans mostly) will cover purchase of regular sex therapy.

    This study has only found a correlation, correlation does not mean causation.

    This probably means that healthier men (less chance of having a heart attack) have more sex than unhealthy men.

    They are to many factors to be considered, but this study DOES NOT PROVE a cause and effect case.

    Wheres the actual information that they graphed? Did they actually find a cause or just a link? Seems likely to me that the older people get the more likely they are to have heart attacks, but of course as people get older they're also more likely to have less sex. Doesn't really seem to imply anything to me other than "as people get old, they are less sexually active and sometimes they have heart attacks"

    but if they made the other group ABSTAIN from looking, obviously that's going to hurt them due to frustration. Where's the control group?

    He is very old.

    He has lived a VERY good life. His cock has been sucked by more beautiful young women IRL than you have had in your sad, lonely, masturbatory fantasies.

    What they fail to mention is the descriptions of the two different groups. AKA it could easily have been that of the men they studied, the slimmer/healthier/more attractive men where the ones getting laid while the fat otakus weren't. In which case the sex probably had nothing to do with heart health and it was the fact that men who exercised in the first place are just more likely to get laid.

    if you read the article it mentioned that they could masturbate also and not only have sex for the benefits

    Good to know, then they need to change the claim of the article to "exercising helps prevent heart attacks", which i guess is pretty much common sense
