The Body is a 'lazy' system. It atrophies anything not being used. You have to push it to grow in any way and push it to maintain anything. Since orgasm is part of ones sexual system.
And the body equates sex with perpetuatuing the species (a "young" adult activity) If you actively work out your body sexually it makes sense that your body will try to maintain those systems and there fore making you age more slowly. (The common physical laws of TIME dictate that it is unlikely that you wil ever actually get younger)
In general physical activity activates mechanisms in your brain and body that maintain longevity (youth not duration of sex) and since sex is an integral part of physical activity, it is primal in maintaining health and youth. I specialized in exercise-induced physical and cognitive enhancement, so I am speaking from a scientific point of view.
In terms of orgasms per se, they also activate pleasure transmitters in the brain that make your brain healthy and thus more capable of withstanding the stress that occurs with age....and so yes it may be good for maintaining youth.

I like topics like this. Thank you for starting it. I don't totally follow what you're saying though, in regards to 'lazy'. The body doesn't work that way, it doesn't shut down things that aren't being used in all cases. Our genes prioritize our survival in different ways. If we are inactive, muscles atrophy because they take up energy, so if there's no need for them, we minimize our investment in them.
There's no reason at all to think regular sexual activity slows the ageing process. To the contrary, it is a physical activity, and it expends calories, and probably elevates the metabolism. Metabolism is a large component of ageing. People who elevate it excessively only accelerate their ageing.
In moderation however, exercise and likely sexual release as well are good for health. This is because both have been essential to survival and propogating the species, so the ability to be efficient in doing them is selected for. As they are being done constantly, they might even be seen as a base factor, in which case, other systems (like say, circulating lymphatic fluids) can take advantage of them. This happens to such a large degree that any other systems for doing so would become vestigial, if they were even around in the first place (since I think all species have had to move around and have intercourse).
So no, it's not exactly a direct returns in investment. Just be moderate.

Once I shot several streams over my left shoulder onto the pillowslip.

Oh...the orgasm question..hey not many guys here have discussed THEIRS ;)
I think women tend to be able to achieve orgasm more because of very good lover or because of our own mental preparation, or some fore ~play or intimacy (not necessarily 'sexual'), or is that just me ladies?
Men normally turned on by seeing and sexual touch, while women tend to be more mental/emotional then added the physical, especially any form of touch, think that is why most women like the romance movies and books too
Me, okay, since I am an extrovert, and have no problem discussing ANYTHING LOL...I am the kind of woman that can almost kill my partner if is a really good one, almost fell off the bed, my x used to try to hold on to me probably MORE to protect himself than anything else lol I am talking your whole body feels it too the point of curlign your toes...the average ones just make you feel totally in touch with the whole universe as it was...totally content..but not the earth shattering ones...
Course have had some non-orgasm sexual encounters...doesn't mean I didn't enjoy myself...think why so many women have to 'fake' it is because the man somehow feels if the woman doesn't then they were a failure...and frankly that is not always true...course some men out there probably don't care as long as they got off /shrug Of course there are some tricks all women can do to help them both enjoy it more...just takes some special exercise most pregnant women learned...you ladies know what I am talking about :)
Hey, that ruined my buzz LOL think just talking about this topic made me feel older...cause I know too much about this topic LOL
The emotional, spiritual and physical well being you can achieve...don't think some of those youngsters know more than the act of sex rather the fun, enjoyment and closesness you both can achieve...
What I would like to know is...do MEN feel the same closeness and such that WOMEN normally feel...maybe because it can take us a little...longer to reach it than men normally can...or maybe some men just better at it ;)
Course as you said...I would be alot younger than I am now...wait...is that why people say I look younger than my age ;)
And if Lord-d can change his passport...maybe I can change my driver's license? hmmm
I know that farm and zoo animals can be electrically stimulated to e*jaculate. I wonder if the Kinsey institute or some other such organization could come up with an electrical stimulator, I don't mean a mechanical vibrator, that could absolutely make an anorgasmic woman experience orgasm.
It would of course have to be very, very, very ,very gentle and not burn the woman in any way.
Invent that and you may become a millionaire.
Well, as usual it appears I am very late, it seems the thing was invented about 75 years ago, more or less. It is called a Violet Wand and can be ordered over the internet for anywhere from $150+. Just type in Violet Wand. It is actually a small Tesla Coil or it acts a lot like one. The S&M people like to use it.
If you acquire one I would say be extremely careful.
It is not the orgasms so much that increase the age, it is the running after it that makes you old, and poor.
That quote was posted by you on 29th May , scroll back here..I distinctly remembered that because it was v.apt and funny..
I am glad u revived this thread anyway..
I recently met a charming Ob/gyn at an alumni party. I often wondered what turns male ob/gyns when they go home to their wives when all day they examine so many female bodies at work . Would an ob/gyn who understands every muscle and female sexual parts so thoroughly be better at fore-play and sex? Or does he see it as all boring work like the chef who gets fed up with his wife's cooking?

Spoken by an honest man with true experience indeed!
Hence I was advocating for a while the unspoken wonders of celibacy and DIY sex..that would be the best prevention for all forms of STDs and AIDs that are spreading and decimating so many from over pursuit of Ogasmic pleasure.
5W was in the process of building his fail- proof ideal female robotic model till he was distracted by a group of cantankerous women here...work on him to carry on his noble invention and maybe you will enjoy the vicarious pleasure of his fruit...which maybe a vast improvement on the alternative Eve that God never intended but I fear left to his own device he might build an even greater disaster, suggest maybe you could land him a helping hand.
