I watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo, but I won’t be taking sex life advice from the ladies anytime soon. Camille Grammer talked on The View about how she and soon-to-be ex-husband Kelsey haven’t had sex for two years. Meanwhile, her cast-mate Lisa Vanderpump joked on the reality show’s recent reunion that she only has sex with her hubby Ken three times a year.
“Ideally you shouldn’t let your frequency fall below three times a week*,” says Eric Braverman, M.D., professor of integrative medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City and author of Younger (Sexier) You in our February issue. The reason: having sex regularly is linked with heaps of health benefits. It busts stress and can even alleviate pain and boost immunity. (*Solo missions count.)
Busy lives intervene with getting busy, of course. But just like with your workouts, it’s good to have goals. And sometimes it helps to schedule it in!
