Better sex 'linked to good health for women'

world Updated: Oct 01, 2009 01:19 IST

Ladies, it's the quality that matters when it comes to having sex, for a new study says that a satisfying intercourse can keep women in good health.

An international team has found that better sex is linked to good health for women -- those who get fulfilled in the bedroom also have "positive wellbeing" and "vitality", The Daily Telegraph reported.

The study, based on 295 women, aged between 26 and 65, who have sex more than twice a month, also found that frequent sex did not always result in the sexual satisfaction necessary for overall better health.

Lead author Sonia Davison of Monash University said: "We wanted to explore the links between sexual satisfaction and wellbeing in women and to see if there was any difference between pre- and postmenopausal women.

"We found women who were sexually dissatisfied had lower wellbeing and lower vitality. This finding highlights the importance of addressing these areas as an essential part of women's health care, because women may be uncomfortable discussing these issues with their doctor."
