How regular exercise can boost a man's sex life, according to an American study
Attention, men! It's time to hit the gym - not only to get your body in shape, but also to boost your sex life...

That's right - according to a new American study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, regular exercise may enhance a man's erectile and sexual function.

Up and at ‘em, guys! Here's the full scoop on the study that linked exercise to a better sex life...

New study finds a link between physical activity levels and a man’s sexual function

The study, which was conducted by researchers at Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute in Los Angeles in the USA, involved nearly 300 male study subjects.
 
Each study subject provided information about his ability to have erections and orgasms, the quality and frequency of his erections, his overall sexual function and his physical activity levels.
 
Researchers found that the study subjects who exercised the most regularly – as measured by what’s known as METS (or metabolic equivalent) had better sexual function. Researchers noted that race had no effect on these results.
 
Men who exercised less, on the other hand, scored lower when it came to sexual function. Researchers said that factors such as older age, current or past smoking, diabetes, and heart disease also contributed to lower sexual function in study subjects.

Men need to do at least six hours of light exercise a week to reap the sexual health benefits, according to researchers

Wondering just how much exercise you need to do to give your sex life that much-needed boost? According to the study, better sex was reported by study subjects who did in the equivalent of two hours of strenuous exercise, three-and-a-half hours of moderate exercise or six hours of light exercise every week.
 
Dr Stephen Freedland, director of the Cedars-Sinai Center for Integrated Research in Cancer and Lifestyle also in Los Angeles, reported in a journal news release, “When it comes to exercise, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. However, we’re confident that even some degree of exercise, even if less intense, is better than no exercise at all.”
 
While past research has also associated lack of exercise with erectile dysfunction, these studies tended to look at white men only. “This study is the first to link the benefits of exercise in relation to improved erectile and sexual function in a racially diverse group of patients,” concluded Adriana Vidal, senior study author and investigator in the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.
