Good news! Sex wards off dementia

I read it on the Internet so it must be true:

Quote:
Getting frisky between the sheets could benefit your brain health, according to a Coventry University study.

Older men who enjoyed regular love-making showed signs of a healthier brain.

In particular, they were able to recall lists and recognise patterns.

I'll bet the healthier brain is the reason behind enjoying love-making, rather than the other way 'round...

A few years ago at my annual physical the doctor told me I need to work on three things to maximize my health and age well. Loose the gut, more strength training, and have more sex. I was surprised he never said anything about aerobics, but I guess it was because the latter one was supposed to take care of that.
Yes he really said that these were the three most important things to do to ward off aging.

reminds me of the old joke where in consultation with the wife the dr said: the most important thing you can do for your husband is to make sure he has sex daily.

after the appointment the DH asks DW, "so what did the Dr. say?"
DW: " he said you're going to die"

In chronological order: strength training, lose gut, more sex. 😄

just because there is a therapy that works, does not mean we all have access to care.

Or, as DW said when I told of this new finding, "get away from me."
Now, where did I put my keys?

Is this a case where if a little is good, more is better?

Can I get a doctor to write the prescription?

I doubt one would but it can't hurt to ask. The worst they'll do is laugh and say "no".

But if one did I can see the screaming headlines now:

If sex does not ward off dementia for you, it's no cause for alarm.

I just now recall a story of an elderly demented woman having sex like a bunny in a nursing home with a fellow male patient. The story made the news because the nursing home did not know how much freedom to give an adult patient, even when the patient's mental capacity was questionable.

If everyone was having a good time, what's the problem you ask. The problem here was that the woman's family sued for negligence. I do not remember if they sued the man too for raping or taking advantage of the demented woman, but I do recall that he died soon too, so that ended it.

The point here is that if dementia still sets in despite your effort, worry not. Demented people often have less inhibition, and manage to have more good times.
