A wry view of life for the world-weary

Sex Advice Of The Week


Things seem to be getting worse for Keith Vaz and here’s some more bad news I gleaned from the ever popular Journal of Health and Social Behaviour this week. According to a survey of 2,200 respondents conducted by Michigan State University men aged between their late 50s and mid 80s who engaged in sexual activity once or more a week were twice more likely to suffer a heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular problems than men of that age group who abstain.

It is all down to the effort expended to achieve an orgasm which puts stress on the old cardiovascular system. Artificial stimulants such as Viagra could also play a part in increasing the risk. Conversely, older women who enjoy an active sex life may get better protection because of the beneficial effects of the female sex hormone released during orgasm.

As Keith may have said, you pays your money and you takes your choice. Dying at the peak of physical congress or as the New York magazine famously said of Rockefeller who was rumoured to have died whilst on the job, “Nelson thought he was coming, but he was going” may have its attractions for some but it makes a cup of hot cocoa with a Trollope by the fireside even more attractive to others.
