Sex Can Actually Make You Look 7 Years Younger

So, we all know the obvious benefits to getting busy — stress relief, reduced pain, and even enhanced immunity. But, it turns out there's a whole other side of the sack we could be tapping into: the fountain of youth. According to a new study by Dr. David Weeks, a clinical psychologist and former head of old-age psychology at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, having regular intercourse can actually make you look five to seven years younger. That's right, instead of shelling out for expensive night creams, face masks, and moisturizers, we could just be getting busy.
Dr. Weeks has spent the better part of a decade getting to the bottom of sex benefits, and along the way he interviewed thousands of men and women of all ages about their sexual frequency. And, among respondents, those who appeared the youngest were having up to 50 percent more bedroom sessions — around three times per week. The study even found that intercourse can expand your life expectancy. Of course, the most crucial factor in preserving your good looks comes from experiencing pleasurable sex, so you won't cure your wrinkles with just any ol' romp. Now, if you'll excuse us, we're off to hit Victoria's Secret, and then to clear out our beauty cabinets. (Huffington Post)
