An Orgasm a Day...

The local National Health Service office in Sheffield, England has distributed a leaflet entitled "Pleasure" throughout its school sex education classes. In it, students are told about the health benefits of a happy sex life, saying that good, safe sex or masturbation twice a week could be a particularly enjoyable way to fulfill your physical activity requirements for healthy living. This is summed up in the slogan "An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away". The author of the leaflet says that it isn't necessarily encouraging teenagers to have lots of sex, but instead to inform them that once they're old enough to become sexually active, they should treat sex as a fun and productive activity. As everything promoted in this leaflet is scientifically sound and will most likely promote a lifestyle of health and happiness for both teenagers and adults, I can't imagine anyone will have a problem with it. Well, not anyone who likes getting laid, at least. More details here.
