So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Another R Rated AoM Post

My honey isn't a fan of Oprah and I can only take her in small doses, but listening to the radio this morning and the radio DJs were talking about some sex survey on Oprah and, of course, that perked up my ears.

According to Dr. Oz, how often should you have sex?
A) Once a week
B) Twice a week
C) 10 times a month
D) 200 times a year or more

The correct answer is D.

"If you have more than 200 orgasms a year, you can reduce your physiologic age by six years," Dr. Oz says. He bases the number on a study done at Duke University that surveyed people on the amount and quality of sex they had. *I think I now know why people say I don't look 39*

"They looked at what happened to folks that are having a lot of intercourse over time, and the fact is, it correlated."Among the benefits of having sex often, Dr. Oz says, is that it can prove that your body is functioning as it is supposed to. "But in addition, having sex with someone that you care for deeply is one of the ways we achieve that Zen experience that we all crave as human beings," he says. "It's really a spiritual event for folks when they're with someone they love and they can consummate it with sexual activity … seems to offer some survival benefit."

Additionally, Dr. Oz said healthy, monogamous sex can help you lose weight. Dr. Oz wants to clear up a misconception that sex burns a lot of calories. In fact, sex only burns about 25, equal to half a slice of bread. Instead, Dr. Oz says the real value of meaningful sex—not recreational sex—comes from the release of a hormone called oxytocin, which makes you feel community, love and empathy.

"That is incredibly important because besides lowering your blood pressure, what it does is it tells your gut not to send signals to the brain to eat. So it's a wonderful tool to get you where you want to be," Dr. Oz says.

Losing weight then tends to increase your sex drive, he says. And, losing weight improves the sex lives of men in another way. "If you lose 35 pounds, if you're a male, you are gaining one inch of penis length," he says. Often when a man is carrying a lot of extra weight, Dr. Oz says a fat bundle builds up and starts to surround the shaft. As a man drops the weight, that fat starts to recede.

Wowwweee!!! I have never heard that before, but it makes perfect sense. Somehow, I think if NutriSystem or Weight Watchers promoted their business in this way to men, they'd get LOTS more male consumers of their products.
