Use condoms 'at least once a week'

An expert has claimed that men wondering how many condoms they get through in a week should be looking at least one in order to maintain their health.

Ian Kerner, a sex counsellor and writer for the Chart, suggested that many people are falling into the habit of avoiding sex due to stress caused by work or the recession, too busy a social life or easy access to porn.

However, sex improves the body and mind, and couples should make sure that heading to the bedroom becomes at least a once-a-week practice, much like going to the gym or eating less meat, the expert said.

"Sex rejuvenates you, relieves stress, boosts immunity, releases feel-good chemicals called endorphins, and - in men - improves prostate health," he added. recently suggested that dirty talk stimulates women's minds and bodies and could be one of the best ways of pleasing a girlfriend between the sheets.
