An Orgasm A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

ist1_6167720-healthy-eatingNHS (National Health Services), the publicly funded healthcare system in the United Kingdom, believes that regular intercourse can be good for school pupils’ cardiovascular health and they have a “right” to an enjoyable sex life.

The advice appears in leaflets circulated to parents, teachers and youth workers and is meant to update sex education by telling students about the benefits of enjoyable sex.

The authors of the guidance say that for too long, experts have concentrated on the need for “safe sex” and committed relationships while ignoring the principle reason that many people have sex.

The leaflet carries the slogan “an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away”. It also says: “Health promotion experts advocate five portions of fruit and veg a day and 30 minutes’ physical activity three times a week. What about sex or masturbation twice a week?”

blog it

The article doesn’t mention the parents’ reaction towards this… err… progressive advice.




  1. OMG, this is hillarious. Is this like telling, “Kids, go wank, it’s healthy”? Britain has completely lost it!

  2. Uhm. Safety first. That’s all I’m saying!!!

  3. Well, at least this is kind of funny and not the usual moral preaching. On the other handr I just can’t imagine a healthy teenager who needs advice or encouragement.

    But then, I’m not British..

  4. Parvita: I couldn’t even begin to imagine how they apply the advice at school!

    Therry: safety first on masturbation? Like wash your hand before doing it? LOL 😀

    Colson: right, of course. British people do need some encouragement! I guess it’s never a problem in the Netherlands….

  5. @ FW…

    Great minds think alike, I posted on this seriously interesting topic of the sexual rights of children to enjoy orgasm.


    Are you suggesting that masturbation is unhealthy? I don’t know that if it comes up for discussion at some point in the [very distant] future that I am going to say to Will, “Son, if you masturbate there are only two possible outcomes here, you will go blind or get hairy palms!”

  6. Rob: yeah we posted the article on the same day. Just FYI, some (young) Indonesians still believe that if you masturbate too much (or too often) people can see it from the way you walk. Apparently your knees look weird. Tell that to Will 😀
