Men who have sex at least twice a week can almost halve their risk of heart disease, according to new research.
It shows men who indulge in regular lovemaking are up to 45 percent less likely to develop life-threatening heart conditions. The study, of over 1,000 men, did not examine whether women benefit too.
The researchers who carried out the investigation are calling for doctors to screen men for sexual activity when assessing their risk of heart disease.
