This study was conducted by the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in the United States and found that happiness after retiring from an active professional life was influenced heavily by the kind of sex life enjoyed by the seniors.

The study was a survey of 238 married people aged over 65. The results indicated that 60% of those who had sex more than once a month were "very happy" as compared to around 40% of those who had just one sexual encounter in a year.

"Highlighting the relationship between sex and happiness will help us in developing and organising specific sexual health interventions for this growing segment of our population," lead researcher Adrianne Jackson was quoted as saying by the Telegraph.

The study also found that frequency of sexual activity influenced both general as well as marital life.
