A new study shows that sexual intercourse regularly even in older years is the key to good health. It improves not only the feeling of well-being, but also improves life satisfaction, the researchers explain. The research results were published in the latest issue of the journal Sexual medicine.
The study by researchers from the University of England at Ruskin and at University College London reviewed 6,879 British pensioners aged 65 and over who reported having sex in the previous year. They noted that these individuals were more happy with life and they also had more enjoyment.
According to the results of the study, it may be useful for doctors to ask geriatric patients about sexual activity and to provide help for sexual difficulties, such as problems with erections, because sexual activity helps older people live life-satisfying lives. "Smith and colleagues, Sarah Jackson, looked at the effects of sexual activity between men and women, who found that women showed better prosperity than intimate contact with sexual intercourse, kissing, fondling and touching them to lead a fulfilled life. The united relationship did not arouse the well-being of women, on the other hand, older men had a greater sense of well-being through regular intercourse.
Smith said in a statement: "Healthcare professionals should recognize that older adults are not unconventional and that often and without problems, sexual life in this population is associated with better prosperity. However, encouragement to try out new positions and explore different sexual activities is not regularly given to aging populations.
