Healthy ageing: What has sex got to do it?

Regular sex is beneficial for good health in middle-aged and older men with the more sex the better, an Australian study finds.

Measuring sexual activity in males aged 40 years and older, the researchers found a strong association between an active sex life and good health.

Low-risk alcohol intake and living with a partner were also positively associated with good health, a state defined by an absence of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and depression symptoms
