Having sex at least once a week can help you feel as much as 15 years younger, a study suggests.
Over-50s say that over a period of a month, romping at least four times, exercising 16 times and taking a holiday or mini break helped roll back the years.
The survey, conducted by orthopaedic support firm Neo G, also found that petting animals, going on holiday, seeing pals and spending time being alone with their partner also made people feel much younger.
Those who were the most active found that they felt more than 12 years younger than those who were less active.
Chelmsford in Essex was the “youngest” city in the poll of 1,000 adults.
Residents there feel 15 years younger than their ages, followed by Plymouth and Manchester.
Bottom of the list is Aberdeen at eight years.
Paul Starkey, of Neo G said: “People have been wanting to look and feel young for centuries.
“But when it comes to retaining your youth, we have found that feeling young on the inside is a fundamental factor.
