No wonder Will and Jada haven’t aged… According to one British psychologist, lots of sex can keep you looking seven years younger than your actual age!
Via NYDailyNews reports:
Sex is the fountain of youth.
So says a British psychologist, who claims that people who get lots of action looked anywhere from five to seven years younger than those who don’t.
“My message is that lovemaking is good,” Dr. David Weeks told the British Psychological Society.
Former head of old age psychology at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, Weeks said he spent a decade prying into the private lives of thousands of men and women of all ages.
Weeks found that sexual pleasure is a “crucial factor” in preserving youth.
How? Lovemaking releases the human growth hormone, which helps keep the skin elastic and thus less likely to wrinkle, he said.
Sex also released endorphins, which are the body’s feel-good chemicals and natural painkillers that ease anxiety and make it easier to sleep, Weeks added.
Nookie boosts blood circulation, which is good for that heart and gives skin that healthy glow, the good doctor said.
Finally, sex burns fat and releases other chemicals that bolster the immune system, he said.
Weeks, who is himself a youthful-looking 59-years-old, said getting it on is especially good for geezers.
“Sexuality is definitely not the prerogative of younger people and nor should it be,” he said. “Sexual satisfaction is a major contributor to quality of life.”
Well folks, you heard the man, time to go get to chopping!
