Health for Sex; Sex for Health was the title of a lecture I gave at the Los Angeles Conscious Life Expo two years ago. With a title like that, I had people sitting in the aisles to hear this subject! We’ve all learned that a healthy mind and body can improve all human activities, including sex. But studies show that sex in turn can improve one’s overall health. Since the right use of sexual energy is such a critical health factor, this has to be included among the many topics in my upcoming workshop next Sunday 11/2: Anti-Aging Lifestyle: How to Turn On All the Brains of the Body for Inner and Outer Rejuvenation.
Given the increasing stresses in our lives, many women and men at fifty are already burned-out and feeling non-sexual, non-orgasmic; feeling over the hill and throwing in the towel. Often, they are also sluggish, achey, depressed and a bit overweight.
On the other hand, many women in their fifties and sixties are reporting ever-increasing numbers of orgasms and sexual responsiveness in general. Why is that? Why a cumulative effect? Are they simply feeling more entitled to pleasure than their mothers did? Exercising more than their mothers? Less hampered by birth control than their younger selves? Refusing to pay attention to their numerical age? Listening to the wisdom that ever-unfolding age brings—that joy can be truly ever-expanding? That Growth actually DOES continue–if rightly attended to??
There are many reports on the overall benefits of sexual arousal for the human body. Vaginal stimulation has been found to counteract chronic back and leg pain, reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headaches. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer. Joseph J. Pinzone, MD sites a landmark study on how sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure. The list goes on…
I will share methods for propagating the feel-good hormones that have been suppressed in our systems for so long–feeling good as a prelude to sex or for its own sake. Every organ takes part in the sexual experience, and the polimorphous pleasure receptors in every cell can be further activated–with or without sex. The currents up the spine can get fully charged. When we increase our base-line of wellbeing then we can enhance our energies, including sexual energies. The feedback loop that these energies create has an exponential effect. Everything gets enhanced! And when we handle sexual energy intelligently and intentionally, we create more psychic and physiological force.
