Regular exercise may improve male sexuality


New York : Regular exercise can improve a man's sexuality, says a study.

Although erectile dysfunction is not life threatening, it can impair the quality of life. A Harvard study has linked regular exercise to a 41 percent reduction in the risk of erectile dysfunction – all it took was 30 minutes of walking a day.

In 2004, a randomised clinical trial had reported that moderate exercise – averaging less than 28 minutes a day – can help restore sexual performance in obese, middle-aged men with erectile dysfunction, reported health portal Medical News Today.

Exercise also offers protection against heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, memory loss, colon cancer, fractures and depression, reports the May 2007 issue of Harvard Men's Health Watch.
