The Downside of Prudishness

By Steve Mason PhD


LACK of sex may actually be hazardous to the health!

Indeed, with so many moral arbiters decrying the many mortal dangers of sex, isn't it about time for a little balance? The much revered British Medical Journal has just published a long term, peer reviewed study involving almost a thousand men between the ages of 45 and 59. The bottom line, quite simply, is that the amount of sexual activity enjoyed by a man is directly proportional to both his health and longevity. The actual numbers reported were quite compelling. Men who reported having twice as much sex as their otherwise equally matched counterparts were found to be half as likely to die prematurely. Unfortunately, political correctness has kept this a back page story.

And, along the same lines, data from the largest and best designed sex survey in half a century have now been tabulated and the results are truly frightening. Interviews with 1,749 women and 1,410 men between the ages of 18 and 59 confirmed that the epidemic is twice the magnitude experts in the field had previously predicted. Indeed, almost half the women and fully a third of the men were afflicted. And what is this latest, shocking disorder reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association? Sexual Dysfunction! Some 43% of women and 31% of men now derive no pleasure from sex - having been convinced by Religious Right groups that eroticism is somehow dangerous and/or unnatural.
