To paraphrase a great old slogan for Guinness beer: Sex isn’t just
good, it’s good for you! The evidence is accumulating that the more
sex you have, the better off you are.
Some potential benefits of sex are: easing depression and stress, relieving pain, boosting cardio health, countering prostate cancer, healing wounds and fighting aging.
From the website: 'The myths regarding male sexuality have been particularly
tenacious because men have traditionally not talked about their sexual feelings
and experiences honestly and openly with each other. Our culture has perpetuated
these myths and makes it difficult for men to admit to any lack of knowledge
or experience, and this has lead to feelings of isolation and inadequacy
for many men.
There have been positive signs recently that this is changing. The men's movement is beginning to redefine what it means to be a man, and qualities of gentleness, caring, and vulnerability are becoming more valued. More men are beginning to discuss their sexuality more openly, and this can only benefit both the men themselves and their partners.
Myths debunked include penis size, that men are always willing and want sex, very few men are virgins, sex requires an erection, sex is over when a man comes, all orgasms are earth shattering, men in relationships don't masturbate.'
From the essay: 'Few studies have assessed the role of pituitary and gonadal
hormones on age related changes in sexual behavior in healthy men. We conducted
an evaluation of sexual function and behavior in 77 healthy married men
aged 45 to 74 years. The subjects were studied in the sleep laboratory for
four nights with the last night devoted to sequential blood sampling every
Significant age related decreases in sexual desire, sexual arousal and activity, and increases in erectile problems were noted. Aging was negatively correlated with bioavailable testosterone (bT), was positively correlated with luteinizing hormone (LH), and was not related to total testosterone, estradiol, and prolactin.
There was no evidence that changes in circulating hormones contribute to erectile disorders in healthy aging men.'

An interesting essay written by two sexologists who experiment with Viagra.
They are concerned that the emotional or psychological aspects of erectile
dysfunction (stress, anxiety, disconnection from partner, lack of communication)
are not being addressed by doctors prescribing Viagra (which helps the physical
Note: It is very difficult to prove that sexual disorders are physical or psychological. They are an interconnected mix of both.
The Australian Study of Health and Relationships surveyed the sexual health
behaviours of Australians. The sample consisted of 10,000 men and 9,000
The study found the age of first sexual intercourse has been declining for the last fifty years, the age of getting married is rising, sexually transmissible infections appear relatively common, people who identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual is small, but those reporting a homosexual experience is considerable greater.
From the website: 'EngenderHealth is an international nonprofit organization that has been working for 60 years to make reproductive health services safe and available for women and men worldwide. Based in New York City, we have 20 offices in the field, and more than 70% of our staff work in countries across Asia, Africa, and the Americas.'
Latest reports and online information on family planning, maternal, child and men's health, STI's, HIV, AIDS, sexuality and gender.
'The data indicates that at least 37% of the male population has some
homosexual experience between the beginning of adolescence and old age.
Among the males who remain unmarried until the age of 35, almost 50 % have
had a homosexual experience.
It is true that there are persons in the population whose histories are exclusively heterosexual and exclusively homosexual. But the record shows that there is a considerable portion of the population whose members have combined both homosexual and heterosexual experience.'

Analyse any human emotion, no matter how far it may be removed from the sphere of sex, and you are sure to discover somewhere the primal impulse, to which life owes its perpetuation. ... The primitive stages can always be re-established; the primitive mind is, in the fullest meaning of the word, imperishable. ... Mans most disagreeable habits and idiosyncrasies, his deceit, his cowardice, his lack of reverence, are engendered by his incomplete adjustment to a complicated civilisation. It is the result of the conflict between our instincts and our culture. (Sigmund Freud)
