Question 10: 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. "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."
