From Justin J. Lehmiller, 5 Ways Women Can Orgasm That Don’t Involve Sexual Activity:
While I’m sometimes envious of all the sexual advantages women have I only have to remind myself that I never had and never will have the risk of going through childbirth.
Scientists have uncovered the first biological evidence that frequent bedroom activity boosts lifespan by protecting our DNA.
The study focused on telomeres — protective caps on the ends of DNA — that predict a person’s biological age.
Thought of as tiny internal clocks, they shorten with time and eventually become so small that cells die.
Shorter telomeres have been associated with aging, disease and a higher risk of death.
The researchers found women who had sex during the course of the week-long study had telomeres that were up to 30 percent longer.
But relationship quality had no effect on them.
Scientists did not study men, but believe an active love life would also add years to their lives.
I’m thinking they should add nuns, Catholic priests, monks, and prostitutes into their study populations.
In the mean time go with the best evidence to date and don’t be a science denier. If you want to have a better chance at a long and healthy life take Dr. Joe’s advice.
Sex is good for the heart because it reduces the levels of a harmful chemical in the blood, scientists believe – but the effect is only seen in men.
Having sex several times a week can cut lead to better circulation and healthier blood vessels in men, which researchers say is crucial for preventing a build-up of the chemical homocysteine.
But scientists say women benefit much less because sexual arousal is less dependent on having a healthy blood flow, which is a key factor in keeping homocysteine under control.
Having lots of sex when you get older boosts brain power, scientists have discovered, with people who have regular sexual relations scoring better on verbal, visual and spatial perception tests.
A team of researchers from the universities of Oxford and Coventry, U.K., carried out a study on 28 men and 45 women aged between 50 and 83. The participants were asked about their sex lives, including how often, on average, they had had intercourse over the last 12 months. Answers included never, monthly and weekly.
They were also asked questions about their general health and lifestyle, and undertook a test that measured their brain function. This test assessed attention, memory, fluency, language and visual and special abilities. For example, for the verbal test they were asked to name as many animals possible in 60 seconds.
The original paper is Frequent Sexual Activity Predicts Specific Cognitive Abilities in Older Adults.
Whether you are a male or a woman, sleeping in the buff offers both of you some pretty great health benefits.
The article goes on to explain each of the following points:
Sounds good to me. In fact, I don’t have a problem with extending the nudity to any other time of the day. In general, I think clothes really only serve two purposes:
Hypothesis are easy to generate for almost any topic. And in a surprising number of cases people are so confident in them they think testing them is pointless.
“If people carry guns there will be blood in the streets!” Nope, not really.
“A ban on ‘assault weapons’ will make people safer!” The data indicates otherwise, “the ban might reduce gunshot victimizations. This effect is likely to be small at best and possibly too small for reliable measurement.”
“The more education about sex and birth control the lower the teen pregnancy rate.” Surprise! Maybe not:
The reigning orthodoxy among public health officials is that the more government spends on sex education the fewer teen pregnancies there will be. Now, however, British researchers have found empirical evidence that appears to demonstrate the exact opposite.
In findings published in the Journal of Health Economics, Nottingham University Business School Professor David Paton and Liam Wright, a research assistant at the University of Sheffield, found budget cuts to sex education classes may have contributed to lower rates of teenage pregnancy in England.
Paton’s study compared changes in the rate of teen pregnancy with the change in the annual funding of teenage pregnancy services for 149 English local authorities between 2008 and 2014.
To their surprise, the researchers found that after sex education budgets were slashed, teen pregnancy rates fell by 42.6 percent.
Of course if you read that closely you should notice the data it is not about “more education” but “more government spending on sex education”.
I’m reminded that for many decades the USSR attempted to increase farm production and failed. While, during the same time period, the US government attempted to decrease farm production and failed.
I am of the opinion all laws intended to modify human behavior should be tested to make sure they achieve the stated benefits with minimal undesired side effects and are an effective use of resources. If they don’t, then the law should be repealed. But, as we know, politicians are more interested in increasing power and virtue signaling than in using government to improve the lives of citizens.
This graph below shows the percentage of people who have had sex in different places outside the bedroom. This is from the UK so things may be different in the US:
I’m a little surprised a car comes in at fourth place. But that may be a US bias. And a green house? How many people even have access to green houses in the US? It can’t be 37%. Are green houses rather common in the UK?
For people obsessed with knowing whether they are “normal” here is a sex calculator to compare yourself to others in how frequently you have sex.
Dr. Joe’s advice is to have sex as often as it is enjoyable and legal for everyone involved and forget about what other people might or might not be doing.
From Justin J. Miller:
The Netherlands doesn’t just have legal prostitution—they also have government-subsidized prostitution for certain segments of the population. Specifically, disabled citizens are eligible to receive government assistance to hire sex workers. Why? Because sex is seen as a right—something that everyone who wants to participate in should be able to enjoy. Also, it’s something that’s seen as good for people’s mental and physical health.
Since Dr. Joe’s Cure for Everything is known to improve your health it’s not surprising that government run health care pays for it. It’s common sense.
<sarcasm>Can we get this added to the replacement for Obamacare? Maybe there would be less resistance to changing Obamacare. The Europeans are doing it. Doesn’t that mean we should do it too?</sarcasm>
Research published in Social Psychology and Personality Science found that among college students, those who enjoyed casual sex reported higher well-being and self-esteem levels, compared with students who did not have casual sex.
Interesting. For years it was said that those who engaged in casual sex had low self-esteem and that casual sex, at best, offered a temporary boost and worsening of self-esteem in the long term.
More research may be needed. And perhaps the research should be done for all age ranges.
I’ve sometimes heard it said that anti-gun people should just think of private gun ownership as religion with the NRA as the formal church organization and leave us alone. I could almost see that working.
And the concept isn’t limited to the church of the gun. From Nashville we have this:
The Social Club had previously been known as a swinger’s sanctuary at a different Nashville location, and when owners announced the move to its current location at 520 Lentz Drive, residents were outraged.
But the owners promised no sex would take place at the club and instead would open a church to members only to get around zoning laws.
But it appears the city is going to make a fuss over it anyway. The report is quite graphic and the undercover inspectors even took pictures of people having sex (they don’t seem to be included in the report). It appears, just like with gun ownership, people want to control others who are “coloring outside of the lines” of the boundaries they have made for themselves.
My primary objective is to be a good companion to you, to be a good partner and give you pleasure and wellbeing. Above all else, I want to become the girl you have always dreamed about.
Harmony is a robot and the culmination of 20 years’ work making sex dolls, and five years of robot research and development.
The race to build the world’s first sex robot
[I read The Stepford Wives in the mid 1970’s. It is a very good book. The movies all sucked. But the technology to create a “Stepford wife” (or husband) is fast approaching. I would prefer we were closing in on warp drive but as pointed out in the article sex is a big driver of technology:
If a domestic service humanoid is ever developed, it will be as a result of the market for sex robots. Online pornography pushed the growth of the internet, transforming it from a military invention used by geeks and academics to a global phenomenon. Pornography was the motivator behind the development of streaming video, the innovation of online credit card transactions and the drive for greater bandwidth.
We live in interesting times.—Joe]
Boomershoot was very well received this year even if the fireball was a failure (it didn’t ignite).
Some were via email and text message, but still…
At the Saturday dinner:
That was the best speech I have heard at Boomershoot in the last ten years.
At High Intensity:
This was the most fun I have ever had with my AR.
At the Long Range event:
I usually get about four or five boomers. This year I lost count.
Joe as usual, We totally enjoyed Boomer Shoot 17.
Thank you and your crew AND family for hosting and putting on such an unusual and fun event.
The location is absolutely wonderful.
I totally enjoy the challenges of the venue.
It s great to meet new shooters and running into old friends.
I’m glad you feel appreciation for being Mr Boomershoot, because, as you mentioned, this event impacts more than just the attendees. Best Western and High Mountain Resort are both outstanding. The small town atmosphere is a treat when you are coming from Seattle.
Again thank you so very much for the wonderful amazing shooting opportunity.
Thank you for yet another FANTASTIC event.
Whatever you did with the formula, this year, *KEEP DOING IT!!!*. I have NEVER, in my 13 (nonconsecutive) years seen fewer targets for the cleanup crew.
Your stated goal for Boomershoot seems to be bearing fruit: the level of marksmanship this year was outstanding, which directly relates to the lack of cleanup targets mentioned above.

I think I figured out the draw for men of big explosives: closest thing to a female orgasm they’ll ever feel!
From Medical News Today, Ten health benefits of sex:
In some of the cases, particularly the increasing of lifespan, and the boosts to brain power, and self-esteem I question whether there was just correlation or if the sex actually caused the benefit.
Still, there in most cases, there isn’t a downside to Dr. Joe’s Cure for Everything and there may be a significant upside. So, why take unnecessary risks?
I was doing some reorganizing and throwing away of old things on my library shelves and ran across a “men’s magazine”, Cheri (caution explicit photos), from October 1983. I don’t know why I still had it. I never subscribed to it. It was a favorite of a friend of my ex-wife and I. But we lost contact with him in about 1979 or 1980.
I was about to toss it in the recycling when I noticed something on the cover:
A sex and gun club in Hawaii? That’s odd. For one, I wasn’t into guns then. And two, were guns that less frowned upon that a magazine of that genre would, let along a club, risk combining the two subjects? And three, I never could, and still don’t, see a connection between sex and guns. They just don’t mix for me.
In the second page of the article you will find they say that all calibers greater than .22 LR are banned in the state. Even though they still suffer under extremely repressive gun laws it seems as if Hawaii’s gun owners made progress in some areas over the last 33+ years.
I wondered if the magazine was still in existence and found the link to their website. I discovered their current content is all hard core. I remember our friend saying he liked the magazine because it was not as explicit as many other magazines and it featured women who looked more real than those in the better known magazines. Looking at my sample it appears to be a notch less explicit than Playboy magazine was at the time.
Times change in many ways.
Spain reported a higher number of deaths than births for the first time last year
In response and faced with an impending population crisis, the government has appointed Edelmira Barreira to the position of sex tsar.
The portfolio was created by Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Ms Barreira, a demographic expert, will help draft a document for a national strategy of demographic imbalances.
Spain’s education ministry said the declining birth-rate “aggravates other economic imbalances and generates important “impacts” in the Welfare State”, Spanish news site ABC reported.
Well… there’s the problem. Socialism. It’s the weapon of choice when you want to destroy a people.
A growing body of research suggests that frequent sexual activity has brain benefits. For instance, a 2010 study on male rats discovered a link between sexual activity and neuron growth. Specifically, rats that were allowed to have sex daily over a two-week period demonstrated more neuron growth than rats that were only allowed to have sex once during that time. Likewise, a 2013 study—which also focused on male rats—found that daily sexual activity was linked not only to generation of more new neurons, but also to enhanced cognitive functioning.
Smaller studies with humans suggest the effect is present in humans as well.
Via Justin J Lehmiller:
I have done research on human subjects and had to get the research approved by distrustful committees so I have a glimmer of understanding of what she was up against and more than a little sympathy for her.
Almost as a side note I thought one of the points she made was very good. And that is that nearly everyone has used sex, either solo or with a partner to help them get to sleep at night. But sleep therapists, not a single one as far as she could determine, even mentioned this as a potential aid in overcoming sleep difficulties. Could this cut down on the use of pharmaceuticals? It would seem likely and probably have fewer undesirable side effects.
Similar benefits might exist for other issues as well. Orgasms affect mood and brain chemistry. Knowing more about this would seem likely to lead to better, or at least alternate, treatments for things like depression, right?
She not going so far as to endorse Dr. Joe’s Cure For Everything, but she is on the right track.
