The Doc says that it’s good for your health both physical and mental. Check it out…

Television personality and MD, Dr. Mehmet Oz, was stopped in New York by TMZ on Tuesday and asked about the coronavirus. He was specifically asked what couples should do as they are holed up together and getting frustrated with each other. His recommendation — regular sex.

Dr. Oz said that one thing that was learned in China was that depression was a side-effect of the isolation due to the quarantine, and sex will release tension as well as battle those quarantine blues. He also said that it’s good for your health and will help you live longer.

  ‘The best solution, if you’re holed up with your significant other quarantined, is have sex. You’ll live longer, get rid of the tension,’ he told TMZ while walking the empty streets of New York City on Tuesday.

‘It certainly gets some stories. Maybe you’ll make some babies,’ he added. ‘It’s certainly better than staring at each other and getting on each other’s nerves.’

Dr. Oz had more great advice on fighting depression, too. Now is not the time to just let your brain melt in front of the television. He said to use the quarantine as an opportunity for self-improvement. Take the time to learn a new skill, perfect an old one, or find a hobby. It’s also a good time to learn something new — maybe a language you’ve always wanted to learn, take up an instrument, or even study philosophy.

He also said that the “hard moves” initiated by federal, state, and local governments have been a good thing to keep us from the widespread contagion in other countries like Italy which has seen its healthcare system stretched to its limits.

To all of you couples out there stuck at home together…
