    Forward this to your SO. Right now. ;)

    CNN discusses a couple's experience with a new year's resolution to have sex at least once a day, and they integrate findings from numerous research studies that indicate benefits of frequent sex for women and men (longevity, cardiac health, lower blood pressure, lower breast and prostate cancer risk, analgesia, slimmer physique, improved testosterone management, reduction in menopause symptoms, and improved quality of semen).

    We talked about the prostate one before, but...

    ...I did the math, and that's kind of a lot of sex, if only intercourse counts. :eek: I guess, though if you are sexually active between, say, 16 and 66, then that comes out to sex on average once every six days. The sexual resolution couple would have to keep up their practice for January and another 98 months, or more than eight years.

    Sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. "Yes" is the answer. (Swami X)

    I was about 23

    Having sex that much does have its disadvantages too

    well I had been doing that for at least 10 years of my marriage. no wonder I am so healthy. well not really but I sure tried. but it sure sounds more like an exercise program rather than anything they really want to do. if they were not doing it before it will just be like jogging now.

    Having sex everyday would probably eventually do mote harm to the relationship. They would get bored with each other quite quickly

    no it depends on how they get along and how good the sex is. the wife and I still manage every other day and we have been married 25 years. but for the most part I agree.

    i'm all behind this study ;) lol

    I've been telling my wife this for such a long time! :) As she puts it, we could do it every day and it wouldn't be enough, but she's wrong. As much as I like it, sometimes when you wait a few days and drop sexual hints or the little neck rub or touch here and there, it can build up nicely :)

    It's a physical exercise so I can see the total benefits. I experience similar effects with sex than after exercising.

    must go now..the wife is around the house somewhere :)

    Me and my SO don't get to spend much quality time together during the week, since we go to a boarding school (boarding school = lots of small authority figures that think they are big), but when I go and stay with her on the weekends we pretty much make up for the lost time during the week plus some :p (think 15-20 times in the space of 3 days, very good exercise, since neither of us do a lot of it :rolleyes:)

    I know some people will say "oh no you are too young" etc. etc. but both of us are mature for our age.. most of the time ;) I agree with the hormones thing that a lot of people say, but hey, neither of us is complaining! And besides, why try to hide being human?

    P.S. The school holidays SUCK. :rolleyes:

    @leomac 15 and 16 is a bit of a stretch. I'm 16, 17 tomorrow :D
