Politicians don't like to talk about sex -- a word usually proceeded by "scandal" -- but that didn't stop Dr. Oz from telling a room full of governors to have more of it during a talk broadcast on C-SPAN2 Monday morning.
The celebrity cardiothoracic surgeon spoke about the balance between personal and state responsibility for health care during the National Governors Association's Winter Meeting.

When his audience went silent during a Q&A session, Oz took it upon himself to discuss an issue he said he had raised with a few of the governors' spouses.
"The average American is intimate once a week," Oz said. "If you can go from once a week, to twice a week -- which is very achievable for this highly performing group of individuals -- we would actually increase your life expectancy three years and it would be a lot more fun."
In summary, politicians: Sex with your spouse is good. Sex with interns? Still bad.
