Default Sex is Good for You

Frequent sex (with the right partner, of course) leads to a longer life, lower blood pressure, and less coronary events. It will also make you thinner, lessen the symptoms of menopause, lessen the risk of breast cancer, and for men who have had sex more than 3000 times in their lives the risk of prostate cancer is halved.

Did you get yours today?

If is probably true but I cannot help reading such research with a great
deal of skepticism . Surely thinner people ( who are generally fitter )
will look more attractive , have lower blood pressure and probably
have more sex .

Does fapping count? If so, most teen guys make it to 3,000 before they hit adulthood.

I should be dead already. Does the time spent on TBM provide as a good substitute?

Perhaps your SO needs a new screensaver on her computer.

For years, I had to hunt for a good partner (had to try them out of course!!!), finally found the right one, and I certainly feel better... of course, I did (usually) enjoy the hunt... it's what I captured that sometimes wasn't so enjoyable...
