Exercise can increase your sexual life suggests a new study. Nearly 300 men provided information about their levels of physical activity and its ability to have erections and orgasms, the quality and frequency of erections and sexual function in general. The men who exercised the most as measured by what is known as metabolic equivalent (MET) had higher scores of sexual function regardless of race according to results published in the March issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine.


In particular, the best sex was reported by the participants in the equal to two hours of exercise, 3.5 hours of moderate exercise or six hours of light exercise a week, the researchers said. Men who have exercised less had lower sexual function scores. Other factors associated with low sexual function including diabetes age history or current smoking and heart disease, the researchers found.

When it comes to exercise, there is no change at all an approach said the co-author of the study, Dr. Stephen Freeland, Director of the integrated Centre for research in cancer and lifestyle in Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai. However, we are sure that a certain degree of exercise although less intense it is better that no exercise at all Freeland said in a press release.

While previous studies have recognized a link between exercise and erectile function that research tended to think on white men the authors of the study said. This study is the first to link the benefits of exercise in relation to the improvement of erectile and sexual function in a racial group of patients said author main study investigating Vidal Adriana in Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oscines ends Cancer Institute.
