Recent research has discovered that people who have sex once or twice a week have higher levels of immunoglobulin A or IgA in their blood stream.
This antibody courses through your body protecting you from respiratory diseases like the cold and flu and lessening your chances of picking up infections.

In a 10-year-long study, he interviewed 3,500 adults in England and the United States and found that people who reported having sex four times a week looked about 10 years younger than they actually were.
