Doctor says everyone should be having more sex every week – as it can improve your immune system by 30%

A DOCTOR has claimed that having sex each week can boost your immune system by 30 per cent.

Dr Faith Coats, who is a naturopathic medical physician, said "more doctors should recommend it".

Dr Faith asked her 618,000 TikTok followers to send in questions about the role that orgasms can play in your health.

A TikTok user said: "True or false: arousal and orgasm help you not get sick?"

In another clip, the doctor responded: "True! 'Getting down' 1-2 times a week improves your immune system by 30%.

"Tell them it's doctor's orders."

The clip has racked up 111,700 likes in the past two days, with people replying with jokes such as: “Will send this to the hubby”.

Dr Faith isn’t the only expert to promote the benefits of sex during lockdown.

Søren Brostrøm, who is the Director General of the Danish Health Authority, said on Danish Radio: "Sex is good. Sex is healthy.

"We are sexual beings, and of course you can have sex in this situation."

A 2015 study in the American Journal of Cardiology found men who engaged in sexual activity twice weekly or more had less risk of cardiovascular diseases, than those who didn't.

According the NHS: “Having an active sex life can lead to health benefits such as improving the condition of your heart, reducing stress and improving mental health. 

“Being part of a happy, healthy relationship can also reduce depression and anxiety. 

“Even just having a hug can reduce your blood pressure and improve your sense of well-being.”
