New study reveals that having sex once weekly slows ageing in women


Having sex at least once a week slows ageing in women – even if they do not enjoy being intimate, new research reveals. Being active between the sheets increases the length of women’s telomeres, a study found.

These ‘cap’ the end of Deoxy Nucleic Acid (DNA)/genetic material strands, with longer lengths being associated with slower ageing, longer lifespans and improved overall health.

Women’s telomeres lengthen with regular love making regardless of whether they are sexually satisfied in their relationship, the research adds. Researchers believe sex may aid ageing in women by dampening stress and boosting their immune system.

Regular sex really is the best medicine for preventing life-threatening heart disease – if you are a man, scientists found last month. Researchers from the University of California in San Francisco analysed physical intimacy, as well as partner support or conflict, overall relationship satisfaction and stress in 129 mothers in long-term relationships.

Blood samples were taken from the study’s participants to determine their telomere length. The study was conducted over one week. Results revealed that women who had sex at least once during the study’s one-week duration had significantly longer telomeres.

Relationship satisfaction, stress and partner support or conflict had no impact on telomere length. The findings were published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology.

  1. N.Jan^I read some reviews and got a large&#44 I should have gotten a medium. It still fits either way&#44 and the material is very comfy! I assume it may be cotton. The shirt looks just like the picture. It did have a slight smell&#44 but nothing the washer can’t fix.~5|Amazon Customer^Somewhat small but I love it!!!!~4|Jordan^After reading reviews i decided to size up. In men’s t shirts i wear a small and women’s a medium so i ordered the large. Perfect fit. Not too loose and not too fitted. The material doesn’t feel like normal cotton as others have mentioned but still soft and nice. Can’t be the price. i’m 5’7&#44 34DD&#44 145lbs*Update*I have washed my shirt as instructed and it did shrink some so be sure to size up if you’re concerned.~4|Ross^Today i wore this tshirt&#44 everyone was asking me where i purchased and the material is really cool not thick but not thin.I am 5ft7 and 125lbs&#44 i purchased Large just incase because i dont want skinny tshirt. The thing is my tshirt is bigger than i thought ?? So this tome i purchase again but Medium size.In general i really love itThank you~5|Daria^love it~5|Drew Laser^It’s pretty nice. It’s a soft fabric. Personally I would have preferred cotton or something maybe sturdier&#44 especially since they used some sort of hand dyeing process that could possibly like change the color? Something like that. The design&#44 however&#44 is lovely&#44 and the shirt itself will be comfy.~4|Cassandra Clark^Thick comfy fabric. Perfect to sleep in or to wear to work&#44 I’m a caregiver. Not bulky at all. And looks cute with shorts ??~5|Amazon Customer^I’m 5’4 and about 140 lbs. I bought the medium and it fit perfectly. It’s basically just a cotton blend shirt with the word babe ironed on the front. Nothing really special about it. It’ll be cute to wear to the gym and lounging around.~5|Jacquelyn H.^Visually&#44 this shirt is cute&#44 but it runs small. I bought a large&#44 and it fits more like a small. I think even if i bought a XL it still would have been tight. I suggest going two sizes up if you want a good&#44 not too clingy&#44 slightly loose fit.~3|Natasha^Looks as pictured. Did have a slight issue of the screen print attaching itself through to the back of the shirt&#44 but came apart without issue. Washed without bleeding of color and screen print did not discolor. Would recommend ordering a size or more larger if you’re going for the baggy t-shirt look 鈥?Fabric is not 100% cotton and has some stretch&#44 so it naturally fits closer to the body.~5|

  2. Rebecca Metz^This is not a boys size! This is the second shirt I’ve bought from Amazon that has the description of being a child’s size but in fact is an adult size! It is extremely frustrating!~3|Amazon Customer^My son loved it fits perfect~5|Betty^Love&#44 love&#44 love it. A bit pricy&#44 but made my kid happy so.~5|

  4. David Schott^Ordered a size S for my son. Normally a men’s small is a good fit for him but this was too tight for him. We have submitted a new order for a large (L).~3|Kindle Customer Amelia Alice^wouldn’t buy it again. Material makes this hot. I live in FL.~3|J Carr^Great buy.~5|conqueso3^Great quality shirt for the Star Trek 50th anniversary. Washed and still fits well.~5|james candiff^it’s wide enough&#44 just not long enough. someday manufactures will figure out you have to extend the length as well as the width~4|Michael E. Ritchie^I love the shirt but it is snug in size&#44 I wear a 2x and ordered a 3x for shrinkage&#44 but even before washing it fits like and shrunk 2x. I can at least give it as a gift I guess&#44 I am disappointed but that is life……~3|Kerry Scott^two sizes too small waited month to get~3|Michelle P.^It was too small. Order a size or two up.~3|Russell J.Gambino^design isn’t really centered &#44 though better than the first one i ordered which was way off. not great for the $; barely good for the money.~3|Ed Donohue^50th Anniversary is supposed to be GOLD. This thing is GREEN! It’s also too small. XL is actually about medium in our sizes.~4|

  5. Amazon Customer^Sweater logo is faded yellow… not at all metallic gold as shown in the picture… very poor quality. Extremely poor quality….~3|Fadi Yassine^fake and scammer~3|Buck^Fake!. Horrible printing on what I can only assume is a used hoodie. The color is an extremely dull gold that looks more like a green. Messaged seller and received no response. DO NOT BUY THIS!!!~3|Amazon Customer^all good with this item~5|Amazon Customer^Fake product&#44 received today. Not at all as shown in the photo&#44 cheap thin hoody&#44 faded print on fake vannoss logo and it’s not even yellow or gold. It’s straight up green. Do yourself a favor and go to vannoss official site to perchase vannoss gear.~3|Sandy G.^Terrible quality. My 6 year old would have done a better stenciling job. NOT authentic. I only gave it 2 stars because my 11 year old likes it regardless of it looking terrible~4|Amazon Customer^It is a fake!!!~3|Amazon Customer^My daughter was very happy with the gift. The only reason I didn’t give a 5 stars because I received a beige sweater and I order black sweater. The most important is the my daughter love it.~4|Amazon Customer^I am pissed this is not what I ordered!!!!! The logo is not metallic gold and it looks cheap!!!! SUCKS!!!!~3|Robin L.^fix great! look good!~5|

  6. Amazon Customer^I bought this for my husband to wear at a concert we went to. I was worried about it not fitting he’s a larger guy&#44 but it fit him perfectly. He loves it so much and wears it all the time. I will definitely be ordering again for him since he loved this so much.~5|Amazon Customer^Love it.~5|camron clark^You’ll get A LOT of compliments when you wear it. I just wasn’t happy that it fits more like a medium when I ordered a large. I would buy a size bigger than I normally wear if I were to order again.~5|Joanna Sutton^The person I gave it to loves it! Says it’s super comfortable. I’m going to order one for myself!~5|Amazon Customer^Fits perfectly. Thinner material than usual hoodies but I still like it.~4|Amazon Customer^I normally wear a 4 X for a 5 X I had expected it to be a little large. But it fit a little more snug than I expected.

Neillie^good quality too~5|Amazon Customer^This hoodie is awesome!~5|

  7. Amazon Customer^Graphics came as expected. Good quality shirt but the color is not as pictured. It is far closer to heather gray.~4|quizwhiz^Great shirt&#44 though the lettering is a bit smaller than I expected and it’s more of a standard grey then the flat grey that you see in the picture.~5|Susan Black-Keim^This was a gift for my husband&#44 and he loves it. People compliment him on this shirt whenever he wears it…which is often!~5|Katie Marie Kartes^Bought this for my husband for his birthday and he loves it!~5|Kara H.^This is a great sure to wear out and about! You also find out who the true GOT fans are!~5|Amazon Customer^The shirt was a lighter grey then what was shown in the picture&#44 but things like that are always hard to judge on a monitor.~4|Amazon Customer^I bought this for my boyfriend. We’re big Game of Thrones fans. It fit him really well and is well made. I’m very happy with this purchase. It’s a great shirt. I loved the addition of the wine glass. Perfect touch.~5|Amazon Customer^It feels like a cheap shirt&#44 not worth for the price.~4|Kat Crawley^I got this for my boyfriend as a Christmas gift&#44 he loves it so much he got another.~5|Steve A.^Quality t-shirt at a good price.~5|John M. Ratcliff^It has lasted several washings and is still in great shape.~5|john lites^Great shirt!~5|steve^Good price for the shirt~5|JAMES P BOCK^LOVE THEM!~4|chich3chich^For the price I cant complain too much.You get what you pay for.If you hold the shirt up to light you can see through the ink that is printed on the shirt.

Go Trump!!!~5|psychodoc^ok…~3|Scott Krisiak^Love the Trump&#44 don’t love the fact that this is one of those shirts that no matter what you do… it comes out of the dryer looking like a million people took turns sitting on the shirt while it was drying. I stay away from shirts like these generally&#44 matter of fact I usually end up donating them.~3|Lana^Great Quality T-Shirt..~5|

  8. Anneke Van Den Broek^This is a well-made cute little sleeveless bike jersey. I find it true to size – I am 5’8″ tall and 115 pounds and ordered a size small. I usually wear a small in bike jerseys for a close (but not tight) fit. The back is longer&#44 as it should be&#44 so that it meets the shorts when you are riding. Nice pockets on the back. I am really happy w/ the quality for the price. The sides are ventilated mesh (slightly see through) in matching fabric&#44 which is perfect for hot-weather riding gear. I plan to use this as a triathlon top since it is lightweight&#44 ventilated&#44 and close-fitting.~5|Laci Hyde^This is a great jersey for the price! I worn it during a VERY hot ride in Texas. It is super light weight and definitely felt like it was breathable. I ordered a medium as I know jerseys run small. I’m 5’2” and weigh about 125. I usually wear a small or extra small in regular clothing. Will definitely order more!~5|Amazon Customer^This top runs very small for an XL. It is more a Medium.~4|S. Woehler^I am 5’4″ and about 125 lbs. I bought a medium jersey. The zipper stays up&#44 however&#44 it puckers in several places when you are bent over on the bike. Additionally&#44 the shoulder straps are loose and the top gaps at the neckline when you are bent over on the bike. This jersey did great for ventilation and I like the graphics&#44 but the zipper and the gapping make this a “no go” for me. The tag says it’s 100% polyester&#44 but it still shrunk slightly after washing/drying.~4|Rebecca S.^Very cute and light weight. Just what I was looking for in my hot Phoenix summer rides. Unfortunately it was way too small for me. I am a 42F I ordered the XXXL and could not get it zipped. Unfortunately&#44 I had to return the item.~4|C. Keefer^Lightweight and comfortable for out door cycling. Pockets on in back are convenient for storing phone and snacks. Really like this jersey and so did my riding compadres!~5|TPM^Bought XXL but usually buy L. Too tight. Took from May 2 to June 19 to get order. I like the look and feel but too small. ??~4|Alison^Cheap and perfect.~5|

  9. Annie^Although this cap is somewhat large&#44 it is adjustable. I just hate the flappy look of the adjustable end in the back of any cap. Other than that&#44 it looks great. I bought it for my father as he’ll only wear white hats and he likes skimmer style caps. They are better looking than a regular ball style cap. It’s a good quality light weight fabric.~4|Named Storm^Don’t like the fabric. Does not allow ventilation at all.~4|James E Johnson^love it. fit nice~5|NYCHustle^Nice cotton Ivy. Adjustable strap made very sturdy.~5|Rose Arbor^My husband had a favorite hat that had definitely seen better days. But he loved it so I went on Amazon on a mission to find a hat like his. And I did! It had to be adjustable and 100% cotton. It was exactly as pictured and came promptly. Now my husband’s happy and so am I!!~5|DBaird^I use the cap mainly in the summer when my heavier winter caps would be too hot. Works great&#44 keeps the sun off my head and I like the white color.~5|hambone^I am seeing a pattern developing when buying inexpensive head coverings. They are going to be thin materials although they look good in display. This one is no different. I will wear it but so-so.~3|Mischa^Gift for my Dad to replace the one he wore out. He loves it – says it protects his head and is a cool breathable material so it isn’t hot to wear it.~5|steven p.^I like that you can adjust it to any size.Thinking about buying another in different color.~5|Sara Paulson Milanese^Dad loved it&#44 would buy again~5|

  10. DARCMAN1^Shirt on the left was order from eBay shirt on the right from Amazon which was obviously made from a iron on.~3|Aaron^The shirts sold by Tilota Ford Clasyh are not as listed. Return requested since they are not a Prime retailer. Buyers Beware. Poor quality shirt — not 100% cotton as advertised on the Amazon Product Page&#44 I assume it’s polyester&#44 but it’s hard to say as there’s no care tag attached to the shirt. The image quality is mediocre to low – like the original was scanned&#44 and this was printed from it. The item appeared to ship directly from mainland China&#44 took over a month to arrive. Looks like I’m out $14.00 as their storefront is completely blank and they have multiple complaints against them. Again&#44 buyers beware. Shame on Amazon for allowing Tilota Ford Clasyh to pollute the site with this garbage.~3|Pamela S. Sparks^I purchased this shirt here on Amazon for my husband for his birthday. He absolutely loves it&#44 good quality shirt&#44 good image quality&#44 and it fits him just right. It is from Marvel and have nothing negative to say about.~5|jackeline^Image on shirt was very small and faded&#44 colors not as shown on the pictures.~3|Alex L.^When purchasing this item as a gift&#44 I thought the print would be thr same size as shown. Wrong. The print is far smaller (making any text impossible to read) and fhe image is more like an iron on design you could do at home rather then a screen print.When I contacted the seller for a refund&#44 they argued that they would only refund 20% of the total cost.DO. NOT. BUY. THIS. PRODUCT.~3|R L C^Image is faded and looks worn. It is also much smaller than the image shown.~3|thomas simota^A magical shirt&#44 not able to levitate just yet but working on it. I do crave chimichaungas more and can’t wait for international womens day.~5|CBSNgal^Hubby loves his new shirt!~5|Elizabeth M.^Shirt was listed as 100% cotton. It is nylon polyester blend and TIGHT. Not happy with the product.~4|Rob Hewitt^Shirt is Awesome dude no idea what the others are talking about. Great graphic of Deadpool~5|

  11. cyclone47^I really like the relaxed&#44 faded look and feel of this cap. It is a good looking cap too&#44 with the embroidered lettering on the front. I also ordered the beige version of this cap at the same time&#44 but it is still coming (it was not Amazon Prime?). Now after getting this cap and liking how it looks and feels&#44 I just ordered the washed blue version of the same capt. It is Amazon Prime..~5|R C.^Very good hat happy~5|Jack Brohamer^Thank you. Great hat.~5|Howard stockett^Love this faded cap~5|J. Robinson^My hubby ordered this and wears it almost every day when we are out and about. It’s a well made hat. Is comfortable and fits well. Amazing the number of people who notice it and shake his hand and thank him for serving our country~5|Woody^like the hat alot would buy again~4|Robert Ginn^This is a perfect hat. It does NOT have any stiffening so it conforms to shape of my head very well. The embroidered work on the front are done directly on the face of the hat and are not on a patch that is sewn onto the hat.~5|Amazon Customer^Great cap. Fit great over my head. I like the washed out look in gray. The only complain I have is I LOST IT somewhereE between Mesquite TX and Baltimore. Humbug!~4|Deborah H.^I ordered this hat for my husband&#44 who is extremely picky about his hats. He prefers this lower profile hat and it HAS to be comfortable! He loves it!~5|Griddog^Very nice hat&#44 well made.The lettering shows up real well on the dark hat. Faded black and it looks good.~5|

  12. Amazon Customer^Sweatshirt came much earlier than the estimated delivery date &#44 also fits as expected and is super soft on the inside this is a xmas gift for my fiance who loves colorado gear and he is really going to love this sweatshirt!~5|Bailey^Bought this for my military boyfriend to remind him of his hometown while he’s stationed in California! He loves it&#44 and gets compliments on it all the time!~5|z^The logo looks horrible in person looks cheap~4|Katherine Taylor^The worst~3|
