The Benefits of Sex

It seems that a lot of research is going in to prove there are benefits to sex. I wonder what the motivation is for these? In January I noted research that demonstrated benefits for those engaged in public speaking. Today's newspaper reports that sexual intercourse can also offer protection from depression, colds, heart disease and even cancer, but its benefits are only relevant for heterosexual activity.

Of course, this begs a second question... who offers to be subjects of such research, and how honest are people about reporting?

But that's another question.
