 Malaysian Expert Says Good Sex Life is Vital for Overall Health

A good sex life is an important part of an individual's overall health, a Malaysian obstetrician has said.

Dr Nor Ashikin Mokhtar, who will be presenting a talk titled "Good Health, Great Sex ... For A Better Life" at the upcoming FemmeCity event, said sex is good for relationships.


"Sex can be a wonderful cementer or a terrible wedge for a relationship," the Star Online quoted her as saying.

Dr Nor Ashikin, the founder and executive chairman of Primanora Medical Centre, is also a contributor to the Women's World column of The Star's Fit4Life pullout.

She acknowledged that keeping the sexual spark alive in a marriage or in a long-term relationship was easier said than done.

"However, couples who take time to cultivate and maintain healthy and satisfying sexual relations tend to be more connected with each other and do not suffer from depression, heart problems and other health maladies," she stated.

Scientific evidence shows that good sex not only adds enjoyment to life but also improves health and may even contribute to longevity.

"The daily routines of life challenge couples to keep alive that flame that initially brought them together," she said.

"Sexual intimacy should be one of the greatest pleasure of being human. No one wants to be with a partner who is merely going through the motions. Enjoy it or don't do it," she added.
