Scientists have once again proved that sex is good for health. Researchers note that favorable results will be especially noticeable if you make love at least once a week. Scientists have discovered an amazing amount of therapeutic properties of sex, from prolonging life and ending with an analgesic effect. Studies do not show whether the health effect of sex is a consequence of the sexual act itself or of those emotions that a person experiences during intimacy.

Nevertheless, sex has the most beneficial effect on a person's physical condition. Especially it concerns women. Why do we have sex? This question is unlikely to ask themselves men and women during the sweetest moments of their life. But the scientists, who always want to get to the bottom of the story, are very worried about this problem. Reproductive function in nature is extremely important. This is the basic instinct and way of procreation, and also to some extent guarantee the eternal life on Earth. There is a theory according to which this instinct is designed to save humanity from dangerous mutations. Each new organism will be more resistant to natural changes and natural selection. American experts decided to find confirmation or refutation of this theory. In fact, everything was not so optimistic. Now scientists are trying to test the hypothesis put forward 20 years ago. According to her, sex, or rather, the basic instinct and the desire for procreation are a sort of mopping up of humanity. As a result of the exchange of genes and their mixing, new organisms appear that are less susceptible to dangerous mutations than their ancestors. With time, only strong organisms will remain in nature that will lead to prosperity, and humanity to perfection. In other words, sex makes the human body almost perfect. This version was called a mutational deterministic hypothesis, but it caused a lot of cliches and censures. To get answers to all the questions, scientists from the University of Houston created digital organisms that reproduced in about the same way as real organisms are born. It turned out that new organisms resist changes and mutations. Scientists have called this ability genetic reliability. Gradually this genetic reliability passes to the person.

However, when digital organisms were subjected not to one, but several mutations at once, they died, so to speak, could not stand the powerful pressure. In the opinion of experts, in life it often happens that way. Weak organisms survive one or two mutations, but not more. They can not adapt to natural changes and perish. But scientists came to the conclusion that in the course of evolution, organisms learn to resist mutations and changes, and each time they become more and more strong, and the weak disappear. Thus, sex not only gives people great pleasure and is a way of procreation, but also improves the person, making him more resistant to all adversities.
