Make Love, Not Heart Disease


Want to reduce your risk of heart disease? Have sex twice a week!


Nobody wants to have a heart attack, but taking the steps needed to minimize your risks aren’t typically regarded as much fun…until now.


Your doctor probably tells you to exercise regularly to keep your heart healthy, and to eat five colors of food a day.




What if he told you to have sex twice a week? You’d call to make an appointment right now, wouldn’t you?


In men, lovemaking two or more times a week lowers the odds of having a fatal heart attack by as much as 50%. So with your doctor’s support, you can start a plan to wage love, and reclaim your heart health.


Ladies, hot sex will help you, too! Not only will it improve your heart health, you’ll lose weight in the process. You’ll also build bone and muscle tissue…while making your man happier and healthier in the process!


Studies around the world have confirmed the benefits of a healthy and regular sex life. Whether due to physical or emotional effects, our bodies love and respond positively to regular sexual activity.


In addition to improving heart health, frequent sex helps us sleep better, improves mental health, relieves pain, increases immunity, reduces stress and blood pressure, improves self esteem and intimacy, and even makes prostate cancer less likely.


Without question, making love makes us healthier. But please check with your doctor first to make sure you’re fit enough…and when you get the green light, celebrate National Heart Month with the one you love!
