How an active sex life will keep one young, toned, healthy

Sex, which is said to make one look and feel young by boosting the skin`s production of Vitamin D, has, as revealed by an expert, many other advantages.

Jennifer Dunkerley listed ten reasons why copulation is good and why people should have an active sex life.

1. It keeps your heart pumping.

The idea that men are more at risk of a heart attack during lovemaking is wrong, says Professor Peter Weisberg, British Heart Foundation medical director.

He says there is no evidence that men who have sex regularly in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond are at increased risk.

2. It prevents erectile dysfunction.

Finnish scientists have found that men who have sex at least twice a week are less likely to suffer erectile dysfunction in later life.

3. It helps to relieve stress.

`While stress can have an effect on your libido it is important to understand that sex is the greatest natural stress reliever,` the Daily Star quoted Dr Irvine Hendrix as saying.
