Open-minded and practical, Dr Angela Brokmann has answered the nation's sex problems for 18 years. Here, she answers your dilemmas.

Q: I (31) have sex once or twice a week, just normal intercourse.

My weight-lifting coach told me that I have to cut back on that because I lose too much protein when I climax. Is he right?

A: The amount of protein you lose during ejaculation is so small that it doesn’t affect you.

Overall, a happy and active sex life improves your health, your fitness and your performance.

Sex is good for you and there is no need to cut back on it.
