I saw this article in forbes about the health benefits of sex. I can't say I'm particularly surprised at their findings. Strange that an act at the center of out very existance would have physical and psychological benefits. But aside from my mormon friends all dying of prostate cancer, there was one part of the article I really liked. At the end:
"I see it in pro football players," says Eid. "They use Viagra because they're so sexually active. What they demand of their body is unreasonable. It's part of playing football: you play through the pain." This type of guy doesn't listen to his body. He takes a shot of cortisone, and keeps on going. And they have sex in similar fashion."
It's pretty common knowledge that football players do terrible things to their bodies, I guess I should have known they'd also be destroying their penises. The article uses the word scarring. Ow. Of course, if it was with our Britney lookalike, I guess I could understand.
