Sometimes all you can do is laugh. Good news!



Having an active sex life in their 50s could protect men against prostate cancer, say researchers.
But greater levels of sexual activity among men in their 20s could increase their chances of developing the disease in later life, they warn. (Now you tell us!)
Men who are ‘very’ sexually active in their 20s and 30s are more at risk, a study shows. Researchers at Nottingham University conclude that keeping up a regular sex life – rather than excessive activity in younger years followed by a fallow period – is best for men’s health.

Dr Polyxeni Dimitropoulou, now at the University of Cambridge, said: ‘We were keen to look at the links between sexual activity and younger men as a lot of prostate cancer studies focus on older men as the disease is more prevalent in men over 50.

Men who are sexually active in their 50s had some protection from prostate cancer, a study has found.

Sex for men over 50 is a little like tennis. You need a partner, you need to know how, but the quality or speed of your serve or the power of your backhand will not be enough for good sex.

Sex like tennis is part mind game, a matter of time and place, of attitude and enthusiasm, of strategy and tactics. A Game of perception, of observing and of responding. Of playing well with good sportsmanship and courtesy.

And the news gets better.

A new survey shows that men over 50 enjoy sex more than younger men. Dr. Miriam Stoppard isn’t surprised and says it can also be true for women.

It’s great news for men over 50 — if you’re still doing it, you’ll be enjoying it more than ever. The study of more than 1,000 Norwegian and American men discovered that enjoyment rises as you get older, although your performance will fall.

Sexually speaking, the study has separated satisfaction from ability, which is an encouraging way to look at your future prospects as the 50-year-olds beat the 30-year-olds hands-down in the satisfaction stakes.”

And, apparently, it’s good for women, too. “And I think the same applies to women, especially if you’re the lucky partner of one of these sexually satisfied 50-year-old men.”

Your sexuality need not suffer as you age. Stay dedicated to your sex life and maintain your physical fitness, and you might find that sex only improves as you enjoy your golden years. Remember, there is no such thing as too old for great sex — sexuality is a natural, healthy part of being an adult, regardless of age!
