Up until four years ago, I worked long hours outside. I moved to sedentary, and now am moving back to more physical work, but not as hard or often as before. In all of this I do not find that my level of activity has much influence on my desire or ability, other then when I was left so tired any movement was difficult.
There is growing research showing that regular sex correlates to being healthier and living longer. There is a lot of debate about which causes which, but there is some hint that all other things being the same, having more sex makes you healthier. And why not? The hormones and other chemicals released into the blood stream by sex are very powerful. What's more, climax causes an extreme increase in heart rate and respiration - and that's certainly good for us.
Or maybe our boides just figure if we are not having sex, why keep living?
