Why Men Should Have More Sex

The Men's Health Special - in this week's Sunday Independent

Men should be having more sex.

In this week’s Sunday Independent, Dr. Ciara Kelly tells men how to add years to their life in our Men’s Health Special – with tips from more sex to improving your mental health, sleep and fitness.

Men are notoriously bad at looking after their health, often only attending the doctor having been sent there by their significant other. And often ignoring even quite pressing symptoms for a long time.

Irish men have a life expectancy of 78, a full five years less than Irish women. They have a higher risk of heart disease and stroke. They’re more likely to commit suicide. And they have a greater risk of getting and dying from cancer. Yet they attend the doctor far less frequently than women and in the main don’t engage with health services unless they have to.

So what is going on with our men and why are they dying younger?

Find out why, and what you can do about it.

Only in this week's Sunday Independent.
