Healthy Sex Life = Healthy Marriage

Everyone's "doing it." Talking about sex, that is. It's everywhere (or maybe I'm just noticing it more lately because I'm not gettin' any).

In the past month, author Douglas Brown and his wife Annie have appeared on the "Today" show to discuss their exhausting adventures of having sex for 101 days - in a row!. A writer for the Denver Post, Brown wrote about the impact this experiment had on his marriage in Just Do It: How One Couple Turned Off the TV and Turned On Their Sex Lives for 101 Days (No Excuses!).

Many studies have proved that having an active sex life is good for one's health. Did you know, for example, that having sex three times a week burns around 7,500 calories in a year -- the equivalent of jogging 75 miles? Now, I realize that jogging 75 miles in one year is not a whole heck of a lot to brag about (it's less than 2 miles per week people), but let's not forget the fact that making love on a regular basis can also help lower your cholesterol, reduce stress and help protect a woman's heart (literally and figuratively).

Just Do It promotes the idea that a healthy sex life is also a key ingredient to a healthy and successful marriage. So, what are you reading this for? Go on, you know you need to burn off a few calories.
