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.

I'm so screwed...
Oh. Wait a min...
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.
See, it’s wives like you that are enabling this plague to wreak havoc amoung us poor men. I wonder if you could be charged with neglect? ;)
I wonder if any study has cited any difference is results between the real deal and rosie palma...lol
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.
Not charged with neglect, but challenged to rise to the occasion.
If they don’t get their medicine from their own cabinet, don’t be shocked when you catch them down the street and some strange pharmacy......
Or getting her hubby in trouble for dancing with someone else.
My wife NEEDS to read this extremely important article!
Shoot! It’s so hard....wait...poor choice of words.
Hmmmmm, Let’s try it this way: I wish they made a little pink pill for the fairer sex. To correct Female Receptor Disfunction.
Aw heck, maybe flowers will work.
Drill here. Drill now. Pay less.
“Billthedrill”: Nomen est omen?
I guess since I’m single and 56, I’m gonna have to go find a “medicinal partner”. :)
I’m (sob!) a 3/8” bit in a 1/2”-chuck world... :-(
Dr. Laura would say you’re crazy for turning down a good orgasm.
Now that you got the wrinkles out, why don’t you go wash it?
What a sad cooment.
I'm not passing judgement, I just view it as very sad.
It exists--I heard it's called a Porsche...or maybe a Ferrari, I forget...
For medicinal purposes only.
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...
Kinda young for your screen name, ain’tcha. (I hope. I’m 55)
Obamacare will provide one... but you'll have a longer wait than a Canadian MRI patient.
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:
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.
But our pharmacist is a man ?!?!?!
I have no problem with at least once a week, but do I actually have to be awake? ;-)
I am, Thank God, divorced.
haha.....but they didn’t say that counted!
I did. She started complaining that I wasn't doing them right!
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.”
Wow, I am surprised your husband is still around!!
and that's no fantasy i tell ya!
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.
"Knock yourself out."
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.

A urologist told me "Keeping the prostate empty can reduce the risk of cancer. Solitaire counts, but you do NOT have to tell your wife that part....".
No, you probably give the same performance when you are awake.
I should be fine. I get my meds 3 or 4 times a week. Of course I WORK for it. And no I am not complaining.
My X told me that was adultery.
On the other hand (pun intended) I never had to use a line on her.
Try that answer too many times and he may go find a new tango partner...
Sorry to hear that. Regardless of what people say a good sex life is crucial to a marriage.
My empathy. Been there done that.
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!!
