Man aged 107 forsakes sex for longevity: paper

Source Link:

A 107-year-old Hong Kong villager, who still enjoys an occasional smoke, has attributed his longevity in part to decades of sexual abstinence, a newspaper said on Sunday.
"I don't know why I have lived this long," Chan Chi -- one of Hong Kong's oldest people -- was quoted as saying in the South China Morning Post during an annual feast for the city's elders.

"Maybe it has to do with the fact that I have lived a sex-less life for many years -- since I was 30," said Chan, a widower whose youthful bride perished during the Japanese invasion in World War Two

It isn't such a shock. The reptilian Annunuki master species came down on our ancestors and mutated them with the snake and . . . You get the point. So naturally, the humans never had a sexual reproductive system. It's a mutation.

The hell with that.

Why would you want to live that long any way?

The last years of your life you need help wiping your own behind, being spoon fed.. your not active... al you do is sit around waiting for 'the' day

i surely wouldnt give up sex to live longer...............................

a life without sex is no life at all...that guy is a complete moron. He must have a very tired right hand though

Considering he can't time warp and go back to see if sex would of made a difference, his opinion is mere speculation. More likely to do with his DNA and diet than the lack of using his plumbing.

Sounds more like PR news towards population control.

The Druids did the same thing......they believed that sex was giving away energy that was better used for learning and understanding and you were not to do that unless it was an absolute necessity. Druids lived pretty long lives, The Merlin, for example. It's only common sense, I think.

Oh You -unromantic folks......
The story said he lost the love of his life.
Would you be celibate if you lost the love of your life,
and had no inclination to find another??

I think he may have found other ways to compensate
for sexual need
just not with another human!
I find it amazing that he lived this long also.

Power To The Old Guy!!!!

This is a Taoist thing, istnt it? The energy expended during sex is the same as vitality. But the Taoists believe its perfectly fine as long as you get this energy returned to you from your partner. In other words, dont leave her hanging. Its a jade rod thing.

Maybe this guy could never satisfy a woman so he figured hed rather just give it up all together than face constant embarassment of the pre mature nature.

I don't buy it. Here's a different opinion - Sex Does a Body Good.
