The Benefits of Sexual Expression on Physical Health

Professor Emerita Beverly Whipple PhD, RN, FAAN

In 2003 the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), in cooperation with the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, published a white paper on the Health Benefits of Sexual Expression. Although most reports focus on potential negative outcomes of sexual expression, this presentation based on PPFA paper and more recent research, will focus on the positive benefits of sexual expression on physical health.  An analysis of published data demonstrate a positive effect of sexual expression on decreased mortality, lower frequency of fatal coronary events, and decreased risk of breast cancer in men and women.
