Man aged 107 forsakes sex for longevity

‘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.’
