Early morning sex lowers blood pressure – Don

Picture of a couple

A lecturer at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Ilorin, Musa Yakubu, has said that early morning sex lowers blood pressure and reduces the risks of heart attack among couples.

While delivering the 163rd Inaugural lecture of the university titled “Knocking Down the Barriers to Four ‘o’ Clock Activities and Reproductive Inadequacies” at the varsity’s auditorium on Thursday, Mr. Yakubu, a professor of Biochemistry, declared that regular sexual intercourse is good for the love life of couples.

According to the university don, sex boosts the human immune system and stimulates the body’s line of defense against cold and fever by producing antibodies like immunoglobulin A (IgA). He also explained that sex regulates menstruation in women by controlling the production of the hormones that aid better sleep.

The Professor of Biochemistry added that sex deepens the bond between couples by enhancing the release of chemicals that facilitate closeness among partners, thereby making them feel happy being together.

“Lovemaking of about 20 minutes reduces 150 calories,” he said.

Mr. Yakubu, who is Google’s most cited scholar in the University of Ilorin, explained that sex is a very important part of marital life and has led to the collapse of many marriages. He submitted that a marital life devoid of sexual satisfaction is a dead marriage. He, however, advised couples to seek medical and authenticated traditional solutions for any sexual and reproductive concern they may have.

“Sexual and reproductive dysfunctions are common among men and women in Nigeria, which necessitates regular screening and check-ups,” he said.

While calling on universities to intensify efforts on carrying out more ground breaking researches on issues of sexual dysfunctions and reproductive inadequacies, Mr. Yakubu advised the government to give more support and recognition to research works in the academia.

Dignitaries at the lecture include Vice-Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, Minna, Musbau Akanji; Vice-chancellor of Summit University Offa, H. Oloyede; Deputy Vice-chancellor (Research, Technology and Innovation) of the University of Ilorin,Mr. Olatunji; heads of departments, students and staff of the university and other invited guests.

    Nigerians are breeding like insects,this needs to stop immediately,people have to think of other things to do with their lives other than sex,it is shameful that we are expected to become third most populous nation on earth by 2050 even with little or no economic productivity that is useful to the world.

      China is the most populous nation in the world and with good leadership their teaming population is advancing from glory to glory. Nigeria’s problem is sheepish nepotistic leadership not the size of population. Some few years ago with a competent economic team Nigeria was recognized by the world as the economic powerhouse of Africa. But last year the locusts flocked in and ravaged the place, today what we got in place is economic doom, misery and blame game on the past administration. Yet next year depression will set in and sheepish leadership might invade the Niger Delta to divert attention. Nigeria has what it takes to be a great nation but sheepish leadership laced with nepotism and illiteracy has prevented the country from moving forward.

        There is more nepotism in China than Nigeria,same with south Korea and Japan, the major differences between them and us is that they are ready to put their brain to work while Nigerians are only looking for how to survive,less than 0.00031% of Nigerians use their brains,the rest go through schools,come out and recycle what they were thought without making any input,everyone is looking for food and pleasure,a big league consumer society,looking for the next place to go import finished goods from,we are a nation of traders and not business people, and traders are only criminally smart nothing more.PMB is actually the saving grace,perhaps,we may yet begin to reason like normal human beings.
