The study that the news story this blog post is based on found that “satisfying sex is linked to positive well being”. That was really the only conclusion of the study. The news story does not say why satisfying sex is linked to positive well being.

That is because Scientists R Stoopid. They don’t know why satisfying sex leads to positive well being.

The reason why is simple if you have any common sense at all. Sex is exercise. Getting satisfying sex is like going jogging or going for a bike ride. Everyone knows that vigorous exercise of any kind when done in the proper way, or “a satisfying way”, will give the person an invigorating feeling of well being.

What these Stoopid Scientists need to do next is to run a series of studies to determine if other exercises give people a feeling of positive well being, and if they do, is it a similar feeling to the one that is the result of satisfying sex?

The original news story is reprinted next.

Women who rated themselves as fulfilled in the bedroom also had better scores for “positive wellbeing” and “vitality” according to research in Australia.

The study, based on 295 women who have sex more than twice a month, also observed that frequent sex did not always result in the sexual satisfaction necessary for overall better health.

Australian researchers recruited women aged between 20-65 for the study, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

“We wanted to explore the links between sexual satisfaction and wellbeing in women…and to see if there was any difference between pre- and postmenopausal women,” said lead author Dr Sonia Davison, of the Women’s Health Program at Monash University, Australia.

“We found that women who were sexually dissatisfied had lower wellbeing and lower vitality. This finding highlights the importance of addressing these areas as an essential part of women’s health care, because women may be uncomfortable discussing these issues with their doctor.”

The research also found that women who described themselves as unfulfilled in the bedroom were not always those having less sex.

Professor Susan Davis, senior author of the study, also based at the Women’s Health Program at Monash University, said: “It also reinforces the fact that frequency of sexual activity in women cannot be employed as a reliable indicator of sexual wellbeing.”

Dr Irwin Goldstein, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, said: “This large study performed in the community emphasises the role and importance of women’s sexual health in women’s overall health and wellbeing.”
