There has been a significant increase (66%!!) in children having their decayed teeth removed in hospitals since 2010-11 according to councils who are subsequently demanding tougher action to tackle sugar addiction. So whilst I accept that it is fair to a degree that The Local Government Association blames the increase […]

There I was feeling all happy and positive about my new year and then I stumble upon the following news report which has now put me into my first depression of the year.
It’s all very well suggesting wild sex is good for the heart and wrinkles but if you don’t have anybody to have wild sex with it’s just yet another really mean reminder of being single. In addition, I see no mention of the added stress of having sex with a new partner brought on by having to not only expose your body to certain ridicule but hoping you don’t expose yourself to any contagious diseases:-
“Forget about jogging round the block, the NHS says
The NHS has some new advice for people struggling to schedule a fitness routine into their daily lives – a workout between the sheets.
According to the NHS Direct website, “sexercise” can lower the risk of heart attacks and helps people live longer.
Endorphins released during orgasm stimulate immune system cells, which also helps target illnesses like cancer, as well as wrinkles, it states.
Sexual health experts said such claims could not be scientifically proven.
“It’s good to see the NHS are promoting sexual wellbeing,” Dr Melissa Sayer told the Guardian newspaper.
“Yes, there is evidence that sex has benefits for mental wellbeing, but to say there is a link with reduced risk of heart disease and cancer is taking the argument too far.”
NHS Direct, however, told the paper the content was “backed by science and clinical evidence” and “isn’t just a bit of fun”.
The advice, published under the headline “Get more than zeds in bed”, is one of several sexual health-related articles to be found on the NHS Direct website.
Sex with a little energy and imagination provides a workout worthy of an athlete, the article says.
If you’re worried about wrinkles – orgasms even help prevent frown lines from deepening
“Forget about jogging round the block or struggling with sit-ups.
“Sex uses every muscle group, gets the heart and lungs working hard, and burns about 300 calories an hour.”
The advice suggests “regular romps this winter” could lead to a better body and a younger look.
Increased production of endorphins “will make your hair shine and your skin smooth,” it adds.
“If you’re worried about wrinkles – orgasms even help prevent frown lines from deepening.”
The article goes on to say that orgasms release “painkillers” into the bloodstream, which helping keep mild illnesses like colds and aches and pains at bay.
The production of extra oestrogen and testosterone hormones “will keep your bones and muscles healthy, leaving you feeling fabulous inside and out”.
