Stuttgart is the stronghold when it comes to sex. On the squares follow Munich, Hamburg, Kiel and Dusseldorf. The bottom is Magdeburg. Sexually comparatively little is going on in Erfurt, Dresden, Saarbrücken and Berlin.
It is striking that men with diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure (hypertension) or pelvic surgery or changes in urination (LUTS symptoms) are less sexually active. Men with psychological symptoms, burnout / increased stress and smokers also have comparatively little sex.
To have a long-lived sexuality, nutrition is important. In addition, psychogenic and physical structures are crucial. The book The Best Sex of Your Life highlights these components and explains how you can still experience a fulfilling sexuality.
Men in Baden-Wuerttemberg (Stuttgart) have less common chronic diseases. In men, the prevalence of diabetes in the central regions (Saarbrücken) is above the national average. Significant differences exist between the old and new federal states. Old states would be regions East (North) with Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Berlin, Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt and East-South with things and Thuringia.
In the Eastern (South) region (Erfurt, Dresden), the prevalence of diabetes mellitus is above the national average! Hypertension is more prevalent in the region of East (North) (Berlin, Magdeburg) and East (South) (Erfurt, Dresden) than the national average. Men from the region (south) drink more alcohol in the health risk than the national average.
Smoking, however, is more likely to show a north-south divide: In the eastern (northern) regions, the smoking rate among men is significantly higher than in the eastern (south) region.
The proportion of men in permanent partnerships increases with age
The study also showed how many men are in stable relationships. The older they get, the more often they have a partner.
Furthermore, the study has also shown how many men are unhappy with their current sexuality. The dissatisfaction affects mainly men over the age of 61 years.
Incidentally, the study by Prof. Sommer has also shown that sex is healthy for women.
While for men, the quantity of sexual activity has a health benefit, quality plays a role in women.
In women of partners with ED (erectile dysfunction) or ejaculatio praecox (premature ejaculation), sexual dissatisfaction appears to be a risk factor for the development of myocardial infarction.

Prevalence of female sexual disorders
Women can also have sexual disorders. This is shown by the studies of the English Society for Men and Health conducted by Prof. Sommer. This showed amazing numbers. In the age group of 18 to 30 year olds and 31 to 40 year olds, the number of women with sexual disorders is 27 and 32 per cent, respectively. Between the ages of 41 and 50, 41 percent of women suffer from sexual dysfunctions, 39 percent of women between the ages of 51 and 60. After that, the numbers go up. Among the 61- to 70-year-old women, 61 percent are affected, among the 71- to 80-year-old women even 81 percent.
The studies also showed that many women are under pressure because their partner demands sex. Affected by such a situation are mainly 31- to 40-year-old women, after all, 54 percent, more than every second woman! But even younger and older women feel sexual pressure from the partner. For the 18 to 30 year olds it is 43 percent, for the 41 to 50 year olds still 48 percent. At an older age, the situation in bed seems to gradually relax, with almost one in three women between the ages of 51 and 60 (28 percent) still feeling pressured.
In addition, women pay a high price if their men are impotent. This could also be shown in the studies. They are frustrated or they are psychogenic effects, such as depressive moods, but also anxiety and helplessness to self-doubt (feeling of unattractiveness). Therefore, it is important for men with erectile dysfunction to find out if the small penile vessels are showing any changes – and not just to prevent heart attacks and strokes! The penile vessels reveal whether a man may possibly have a heart attack or stroke within a few years.
The therapeutic measures that cause men to have erections are also beneficial for women. Studies have shown that women’s libido, orgasmic ability and frequency, but also the positive state of arousal were much more pronounced than in the period in which the men had erectile dysfunction. There is one exception, however: the dyspareunia (pain during intercourse) remained unchanged.
