A number of studies have suggested that physically active men have lower rates of erectile dysfunction than couch potatoes,
A new study published by the Journal of Sexual Medicine (J Sex Med 2015;12:1862–1864) checked those results by measuring how much their subjects actually moved.
692 men between the ages of 50 and 85 were fitted out with motion trackers, like a FitBit, for up to a week and asked to report, among other data, their erectile function over that time period.
The study found a strong correlation between the time men spent moving and erectile function: for every additional 30 min each day the men spent in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, their odds of developing erectile dysfunction dropped 43 percent.
