Healthier men want more sex for more years.

Some facts you should know...

(CNN) -- Healthier men, no matter their age, are going to have better sex more frequently and desire it more often than healthier women.

And a healthier sex life could mean a longer life.

That's according to a paper written by University of Chicago researchers that was published Tuesday in the British Medical Journal. While the supposition that men think about sex more than women isn't new, the paper's findings have wider implication for attitudes toward public health and how patients respond to doctors' advice, said Dr. Stacy Tessler Lindau, an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology and geriatric medicine who spearheaded the research.

"If you are a man diagnosed with diabetes or high blood pressure and I tell you that you need to lose weight and take medication, and I can say the benefit is five extra years of sex life, you might be more inclined to do what I tell you," she explained.

1. The drive for sex among men doesn't diminish with age.
2. For women 60 years and older, sex drops off significantly overall, study says.
3. Study: Women whose partners are still alive are having just as much sex as men

I think is true - "Sex without love is merely healthy exercise" ~ Robert Heinlein
