Oprah: Do we really need sex to make us happier?

Couple in LoveI think some men and women may have two different answers on that one!

However, on a recent Oprah Show episode dedicated to “What makes Us Happy”, a polled studio audience showed these results when asked “How often do you have sex?”

  • 2% said every day
  • 50% said once a week
  • 20% said once a month
  • 27% said they couldn’t remember!

And to no surprise Oprah revealed that studies at Princeton University say that the more sex you have the happier you are and that women rated sex as the activity that makes them the happiest!

Goldie says what happens is that oxytocin is emitted.  That’s the hormone that makes you feel warm and cuddling when you see babies and puppies.  Goldie bought up an incident the  reference that when you have an argument with your mate and then have makeup sex , afterward you really can’t remember what the argument was about. She thinks it’s the oxytocin!

Here’s a little twist! On a recent episode of the Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz, a big advocate of “frequent sex for a healthier you” had guest Ob-Gyn, Dr. Lauren Streicher comment on the question “Do you care about sex anymore?”

Dr. Streicher said that during a study of about 32,000 women between the ages of 18 – 100, 40% of the women were having problems with sex. However, further questioning revealed, that of those 40%, when asked if they wanted to do something about the problem, only 12% cared enough to want to pursue corrective options.

I guess if it ain’t botherin’ ya’, don’t fix it! and Happy We Will be Anyway!”

Again, something to think about! But, boy, do we love Dr. Oz!
