Thread: Correlation between frequency of orgasm and living longer

    Default Correlation between frequency of orgasm and living longer

    This study below was also referenced in a recent AARP article written by Dr. Oz. about one of the ways to live longer. I thought I would share this so that all ABDLS might benefit to enjoy both their "interests" and know that the more they do the better it is for their health.

    Contrary to the notion of sex as an energy drain, recent research indicates that orgasm increases life span.* What's more, the greater the number of orgasms in one's life, the lower the mortality and the greater the probability of longer life.

    A study examined the correspondence between the frequency of orgasms and death. For ten years, scientists followed more than 900 men (ages 45-59) in the Welsh town of Caerphilly and several nearby villages. Over the course of the study 150 men died. When follow-up studies were conducted, all deaths, including deaths due to coronary heart disease, were evaluated. In the group with the highest orgasmic frequency, mortality was 50% lower compared to the group with the lowest frequency of orgasms. Similarly, all causes of death were inversely correlated with frequency of orgasm. The more orgasm, the lower the mortality; the fewer orgasms, the higher the mortality. This association for lower mortality was most pronounced in those with coronary heart disease. At the point when the group's number of orgasms per year equaled 100 (about 2 per week) the death rate was significantly lower (68% less mortality) than that of the lowest frequency group (less than 1 per month). Moreover there was good evidence for a "dose-response" relation across the study. Translated, this means that the improved mortality benefits from orgasm frequency continued - although perhaps at a less steep pace with advanced age - all the way up to daily "doses" (1 orgasm per day or 365 per year) as reported in some subjects, and possibly beyond, even to higher dose levels.

    Until now, aside from studies concerned with the sexual transmission of disease, sexual behavior and its relationship to health or mortality has not often been the subject of study. This situation may have to do with researchers in this area being predominately middle-aged who, by and large, study middle-aged and aging populations. Because of their shared assumptions with those whom they study, the researchers relate middle age and sexuality to declining sexual frequency, thus rendering the entire area uninteresting. Epidemiologists tend to study areas that interest other epidemiologists more often than those that interest the general population. Moreover, these same epidemiologists are generally employed by government, an institution not known for its innovation or desire to challenge prevailing assumptions.

    I wouldn't jump to any conclusions with this study despite the fact that it has an interesting conclusion. I'm probably not going to be the first to point out that there isn't a clear or defined causation here. Yes there is a high correlation between the number of orgasms and the mortality rate, but there are more factors to look at here.
    1. Maybe people are able to orgasm more because of healthier living
    2. We know that people who live a healthier lifestyle live longer
    3. Maybe the people that were studied for 10 years (ages 45 - 59, now ages 55 - 69 at the end of the study theoretically) and achieved orgasm more frequently were financially better off and could afford viagra more often than those that didn't. If this is true, is viagra a key element to lowering mortality or is orgasm? I know this is a stretch, but it could still be something considered.
    4. Other factors that skewed the average, e.g. suicide, homicide, accidents, etc.

    I personally would argue that #1 and #2 are true, and that healthier lifestyles are the key to living longer. I would also argue that the correlation between more frequent orgasms and a lower mortality rate is simply a coincidence due to the high probability (and tons of research pointing in this direction) that #1 and #2 are true.

    It is still an interesting study though.

    RangerR: This isn't the first informal study that pointed to an active sex life improving overall health.

    More specifically, there have been numerous studies that indicated regular orgasms improved overall prostate health and reduced the incidence of prostate cancer in men.

    F*** like a rabbit and live longer. Works for me. Excuse me while I go *ahem* chat with my wife.

    jk mostly, but the correlation to being healthy enough to do some sort of physical activity and living longer, isn't really a mystery.

    This study really comes as no surprise to me. It should also be noted that sex/masturbation is also known to reduce stress, which could lead to longer life.
