Dr. Oz to Governors: Have More Sex!

Celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz had some surprising advice for governors assembled at the National Governors Association meeting this morning: “[One of your spouses] asked what was the single most important thing to do for longevity, that was easy, and I said, ‘Without question, it’s more sexual activity. . . .’”

He explained, “The average American is intimate once a week. If we could go from once a week to twice a week — which is very achievable for this highly performing group of individuals — we would actually increase our life expectancy by three years and have a lot more fun.” Dr. Oz’s plan for state-level reform: “That’s your goal when you go home — to go from once to twice a week should be very, very sustainable.”
