Is Sex Necessary?

This old Forbes article takes a look at sex and asks the questions, "Is sex necessary?" and "Is there such a thing as too much sex?" From Forbes:
Dr. Claire Bailey of the University of Bristol says there is little or no risk of a woman's overdosing on sex. In fact, she says, regular sessions can not only firm a woman's tummy and buttocks but also improve her posture.

Dr. George Winch Jr., an obstetrician/gynecologist in Elko, Nev., concurs. If a woman is pre-menopausal and otherwise healthy, says Dr. Winch, her having an extraordinary amount of intercourse ought not to pose a problem. "I don't think women can have too much intercourse," he says, "so long as no sexually transmitted disease is introduced and there's not an inadvertent pregnancy. Sometimes you can have a lubrication problem. If you have that, there can be vaginal excoriation--vaginal scrape."

Women who abstain from sex run some risks. In postmenopausal women, these include vaginal atrophy. Dr. Winch has a middle-aged patient of whom he says: "She hasn't had intercourse in three years. Just isn't interested. The opening of her vagina is narrowing from disuse. It's a condition that can lead to dysparenia, or pain associated with intercourse. I told her, 'Look, you'd better buy a vibrator or you're going to lose function there.'"

Not fair. Ladies can have sex as much as they want but not us guys. We need to be careful of penile damage. Shux.

FOR GUYS IMPORTANT: "If you do not allow the penis to rest, then the muscle tissue does not get enough oxygen. Cells start dying.... Eventually the muscle dies."

Well there are pills to prevent pregnancy and condoms to prevent AIDS and STDS but what they should invent is a pill that can do both.

You and your partner just pop in a pill few minutes before sex and off you go!

And the pill should act as a viagra too. That will be awesome.
