Abstinence in moderation, please

On a more light-hearted note is an article from Forbes (um, Forbes?) entitled Is Sex Necessary which examines the benefits (and even necessity) of sex, including better sense of smell, reduced risk of heart disease, weight loss, reduced depression, pain-relief, fewer colds and flu, and healthier teeth and prostate.

Of note in the article are comments like:
"sexual abstinence is ... harmless when practiced in moderation"
"There is little or no risk of a woman's overdosing on sex"
"Women who abstain from sex run some risks"
"As for men ... it's definitely possible to get too much of a good thing."

And yes, the article was written by a man.
