It appears there just may be a fountain of youth.

Dr. David Weeks recently presented his findings to the British Psychological Society showing that people who engage in more sex looked much younger than those who have less sex.

He took a sample of participants in their 40s and 50s who completed a questionnaire about the frequency of thier sex life.  A standardized photo was taken of the individuals and then assessed for age by an independent panel who knew nothing of the survey results.  Those who had sex an average of 3 or more times per week looked an average of 7 years younger.  The magic number appears to be 3 or more per week.

Dr. Weeks attributes it to human growth hormone and endorphins, which helps keep the skin elastic and makes the body feel better or at-ease. Moreover, sex increases blood circulation (good for that heart and skin), burns fat, and bolsters the immune system.  As Dr weeks notes,  “My message is that lovemaking is good." It also appears to be youthful.

Quoting Dakota35:

That's funny Rmac,  We look exactly the same age in our profile pics.  It must be working for you...or lack of sex must be making me old...which one is it?



Interpret it to your best advantage.  That’s what I do.  :-)

Well...finally the news is out.  Sex is life promoting, modulates hormones, floods the brain with Dopamine (natural cure for depression) and helps you sleep soundly, to quote just a few wonderful side effects of this lovely drug.

Absolutely agree... there's nothing like wearing a smile and feel a skip in your step!  :)  I miss that.  :(

But I also agree with Dak, life style has a lot to do with it and Genes.

Quoting Orlando__:

You could volunteer to help women look young. Consider it a public service. 



LOL, I haven't thought of it that way. :)  I'd have a lot more fun if I were that kind of guy.  I'll have to keep the study in my pocket, show it to women and offer to turn back the clock for them. :)

Quoting Dakota35:

I don't buy it totally.  There are to many other variables.  Smoking, drinking, drug use, all that can cause aging.  Ever seen how a old hooker has aged? On the flip side, exercise, clean living, positive thinking, decreased sugar intake.  All can help one to stay younger.  HGH can be increased in other ways and to a much greater extent.  And I don't mean taking HGH injections.  There is a possibility that to much HGH can lead to heath problems. 

Interesting blog though.
