FoxNews ^

Posted on 07/07/2008 1:52:51 PM PDT by Scythian

You know that old adage ‘use it or lose it’?

The saying can now be applied toward men and sex, according to new research involving erectile dysfunction, Reuters reported Monday.

The July issue of the American Journal of Medicine reports that older men who have sex more than once a week are less likely to develop ED.

If my husband tried that line on me, I'd tell him nice try, it takes two to want to tango. He can certainly go take his medicine by himself if he needs to.

I haven’t “lost it.” I’ve merely misplaced it.

But, is there cause and effect here? Men who are “active” shall we say will be more “in the mood” about those things, and thus participate more? Or maybe they mean, don’t stop thinking about tomorrow. Make sure you engage every day, or regularly. Make sense I guess, in that exercising any other bodily part will help keep it in good shape.

men should be encouraged to stay sexually active. . . . three or more times per week. . . .

My wife NEEDS to read this extremely important article!

Didn't for me.

She started accusing me of having an affair EVERY TIME I brought flowers home. (I wasn't)

This gets really old really fast.

It wasn't long before she started bitching that I didn't bring her flowers anymore...

Null,

Send you wife an online copy of “The Wifely Duty” by Caitlin Flanagan, published in Atlantic Monthly a few years ago, and available online at:

http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200301/flanagan

It’s both a humorous and serious look at the disconnect between men and their wives and, surprisingly, takes the man’s perspective.

It turned around my relationship with my wife. I’ll tell you more details in private mail if you wish. Suffice it to say that the deal-closing line with my better half was when I told her, “I married you forever but if you want me to be less grumpy in middle age and later, you might ...”

Another tip to you, instead of flowers, might be to do the dishes. Tell her (truthfully) why. Dobson said that “sex begins in the kitchen.”

Cheers and good luck.

So if once per week is good, is 15-20 times per week really really really good for the circulation??

Maybe, maybe not, but this malady probably lies more in the area of some real physical reason rather than “use it or lose “, or “it’s all in your head.” For decades, ulcers were cause by emotions and stress, but now they’re caused by the H. Pylori bacteria. Mental (the real ones) conditions are now believed to be imbalances in brain chemistry.

For ED, clogged arteries are the first thing to consider. We hear more and more that plaque build-up starts at earlier and earlier ages. And, viagara and others work by causing a dilation of the arteries, by increasing nitric oxide levels which causes the dilation.

Most things that were all in our heads really weren’t, and aren’t. The psychological does play a role I expect, but much less a role than it’s been assigned over the decades of modern medicine.

Those using it are probably the ones with the healthiest arteries.

I did. She started complaining that I wasn't doing them right!

Boy I heard that.

Try to help out, ask a few questions of the GF (what goes where etc), and next thing I know she's in the kitchen butting me out of the way. I'm not doing it right. I don't put the flatware in the basket right, all sorts of silly nit picky crap.

After a while you just throw up your hands and say what's the use? And you still get crap for not helping out. [sigh].

I finally figured out it was better to do all that stuff when she wasn't around.

My X told me that was adultery.

On the other hand (pun intended) I never had to use a line on her.

TRUE!! One can be hung like a horse and still not get any. Sluts only care about penis size...real women want you to give yourself emotionally, etc.

I know. Cuz I am not hung like a horse and I do a lot around the house to make her less tired at the end of the night. The rewards are sweeeet!!
