With a valuable secret of longevity and strong protection of the immune system, a healthy sex life is emphasized, which is characterized by satisfying but also frequent sexual intercourse.
Frequent sexual intercourse (1-2 times a week) seems to increase levels of immunoglobulin A, which is involved in strengthening our body’s defenses, according to a study by psychologists from Wilkes University.
“Immunoglobulin A is the body’s first line of defense against viruses,” said lead psychologist Dr. Karl Çarnetski.
The study was conducted with 111 students at Wilkes University and found that those who had sex 1-2 times a week also had 30% higher levels of immunoglobulin A in their blood.
It should be noted that in the game of strong defense are included not only the bond of love, but also kisses. According to experts, kisses become protective defenses through the exchange of microorganisms with saliva, which is valuable to the body.
In addition, (safe) sex when done often provides physical and mental well-being, which is an important factor in strengthening defenses.
Men and women with the highest frequency of orgasms are estimated to be able to “gain” 3-8 years of life, while studies show that the risk of mortality is up to 50% lower in those who have an increased frequency of sexual pleasure , compared to those who have fewer orgasms.
In addition, a Swedish study found that an increase in the frequency of sexual intercourse (3 times per week) was associated with a higher survival rate compared to those who had less contact (e.g., 2 times per week).
