Provided the man has no underlying health conditions that would put undue strain on his heart, however, having more sex "would not be harmful at all" and may well be helpful."Provided it's done in a socially appropriate way, I think it's probably a good thing," Lording says.A 2008 study of nearly 1000 older Finnish men supports the idea sex protects against ED.
That was after controlling for other health factors such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and depression which can be linked with ED.
This effectively meant older men who want to preserve their sexual function should "have sex, and have it often" ABC Science Online reported."Regular intercourse has an important role in preserving erectile function among elderly men," the study's lead author Dr Juha Koskimaki said.
"Continued sexual activity decreases the incidence of erectile dysfunction in direct proportion to coital frequency."Other support for the "use it or lose it" idea comes from men where the nerves controlling erections were damaged during surgical treatment for prostate cancer.
While the damaged nerves may regrow a year or two later, the chance of erections returning is greatly increased if men have treatment with either tablets or injections to trigger erections artificially in the mean time."These men have a better long term outcome if they get erections," Lording says.
And they're something no man welcomes."When you get erectile dysfunction, there's this stigma of 'I can't perform, I'm not a man anymore' and it's quite damaging," says specialist Dr Doug Lording, who has worked in the field for more than 30 years.
When it comes to a healthy penis though, the principle of 'use it or lose it' seems to apply.
There's even the idea that older men could perhaps use sex as a way to reduce their odds of developing erectile problems in the first place.(If true, this would be one of the more appealing pieces of health advice around.It would certainly trump say, vaccination as a disease prevention practice in most men's eyes.)But does regularly having sex really help a man avoid developing erection problems?While there's no, ahem, hard proof, the answer is quite possibly yes, says Lording, Honorary Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at Monash University and an andrologist at Melbourne's Cabrini Hospital."I think it probably does, but I don't think it's a proven thing.I don't think there's been enough work done to say there's conclusive evidence that's the case."It's certainly true however that "getting erections helps keep the penis healthy" he says.But whether sexual intercourse has benefits for the penis over and above those provided by a man's normal night time erections, or by him masturbating, hasn't been tested.
