Have Some Sex - Erectile Disfunction Lower In Men Who Have More Intercourse

    Do men who have more sex get less erectile disfunction(ED) or are studies skewed because men with erectile disfunction report having less sex? It's hard to say but the message is clear; have more sex.

    Having intercourse more often may also help prevent the development of erectile dysfunction. A study in The American Journal of Medicine reports that researchers have found that men who had intercourse more often were less likely to develop ED.

    Analyzing a five-year study of 989 men aged 55 to 75 years from Pirkanmaa, Finland, the investigators observed that men reporting intercourse less than once per week at baseline had twice the incidence of erectile dysfunction compared with those reporting intercourse once per week. Further, the risk of erectile dysfunction was inversely related to the frequency of intercourse.

    Other factors that may affect the incidence of ED, such as age, chronic medical conditions (diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, cerebrovascular disease and depression), body mass index and smoking were included in the analysis of the data.

    Erectile dysfunction incidence was 79 cases per 1000 in men who had reported sexual intercourse less than once per week, dropping to 32 cases per 1000 in men reporting intercourse once per week and falling further to 16 per 1000 in those reporting intercourse 3 or more times per week.

    In addition, the frequency of morning erections predicted the development of complete erectile dysfunction, with an approximate 2.5-fold risk among those with less than 1 morning erection per week compared with 2 to 3 morning erections per week

    Writing in the article, Juha Koskimäki, MD, PhD, Tampere University Hospital, Department of Urology, Tampere, Finland, states; "Regular intercourse has an important role in preserving erectile function among elderly men, whereas morning erection does not exert a similar effect. Continued sexual activity decreases the incidence of erectile dysfunction in direct proportion to coital frequency."

    The study clearly indicates that regular intercourse protects men from the development of erectile dysfunction, which may, in turn, impact general health and quality of life. The investigators advise clinicians to support the sexual activity of their patients.

    Makes sense I guess...

    Well, PE is not the problem for my 58 year old marathon man, its leakage. Starts at first arousal until orgasm – if he has one at all! He say’s “no problem, I have done that all my life”. I told him he had trained himself “not” to climax and I think that he is “climaxing” via leakage all the way through. I’m 46 and had a total hysterectomy at the age of 29, so this extra lube works great for me, but….

    I’m very forward and have an inquiring mind, so I ask him questions about sensation, what’s going on temperature wise, “does it feel like your getting it all the way through until that big climax” ? And questions along that vein (after of course). He is rather old fashioned and it has taken him awhile to get over the fact that I ask such questions and… well that’s another story. He was also taking Ultram rather consistently when we first started dating almost a year ago and since has taken himself off of it and has had nothing for about 3 months.

    What he calls consistent is biting off a portion of the pill once a day. So he was not getting his required pain management dose, but he is concerned about going limp a few times during our sessions. I’m not bragging, but this is a marathon man. I told him that Jr. just needs a breather every 2 hours or so and is taking a break. Tried to explain the oxygen level, blood flow and cardio factors and how that could cause a “timeout” everyone in a while. In fact, he was so concerned about it that he picked up a script of Viagra! Like he needed that!

    So now that you all know my business, Hi, I’m new to the site! Can anyone enlighten me on “male” and fill in the blanks to some of the questions and comments I’ve stated? It would be great! Why? I’m on a need to know basis with life and I need to know. Is this pace normal for a 58 year old or could it be a sign of a potential problem? He has been recently examined and nothing was abnormal.

    He thinks it’s strange that I want him to climax faster then he does. Now I do not think there is a problem with a wham bam thank you mam sort of encounter with your mate every once in a while. It opens you up for other “quickie” location opportunities and allows you to enjoy each other and allows proper leg function the next day.

    Thanks in advance
