So f*d.

Having sex at early age has long been linked to a laundry list of health problems from an increased risk of sexual disease to an increased risk of cancer.
But now, Columbia University and New York state researchers say waiting too long to have sex may carry its own risks, according to an ABCnews.com report.
People who lose their virginity between the ages of 21 to 23 are more likely to suffer sexual dysfunction problems later in life, according to a study from Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute's HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies.

The study, which is will appear in the January 2008 issue of the American Journal of Public Health, found that men who lose their virginity in their 20's seemed more likely to have problems becoming sexually aroused and reaching orgasm.
But the researchers pointed out that men who started having sex early were also at an increased risk for sexual dysfunction and said further research is needed to determine if a causal interpretation can be made.

Could science please let me know what day I am cleared to have sex so as to not have problems later on? Thanks.

oh sure. The ol' "further research is needed" line. Whatever it takes so you scientists can talk/think about sex all day long.

Are they looking for volunteers for the "research" :-)

Science is just a bitter old loser that probably tried to give it away like it was pixiestix at Studio 54.

Besides; most of my readers weren't so stupid to have lost it in their teens or so desperate to have done it in their 20's. And, according to statistics, if men hit their sexual peak in their late teens, and women hit it in their 30s (pun intended), then thirtysomething is probably the PERFECT time for us to climax TOGETHER. Right?
Back me up here, Math. You're supposed to be my friend.

I think there are certain risks to suppression. If you hold off so long, your drive will decrease. You are telling your brain that it's bad, so your brain tells your body it's bad and it adjusts it's chemical drive. I think that's pretty reasonable. I've done it with certain fatty foods and it's worked - sugar candy and mayo. Both officially disgust me. Never with sex though. It's always good. There's a time and a place. As I get older however, I've noticed it's easier to abstain. Crap. I better not be dysfunctional. Now I'm going to have to pay for a sex therapist. I'm making the church pay!
