Mid-East unpopular leaders fight for survival; while 75 year-old Berlusconi prescribed a day off sex per week
Sex 6 times a week is what the doctor has ordered for Silvio Berlusconi, a leader infamous for his chauvinistic character as head of Italy who has been less than popular amongst Italian women recently.
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who had fought off prostate cancer, has been advised by his doctor that he can have sex six times a week but to take one day off to rest.
His personal doctor Umberto Scapagnini said in an interview that the 74-year-old Berlusconi is in robust health.
"He's a superior man, both physically and intellectually," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Scapagnini, who is also a member of Berlusconi's People of Freedom Party, as telling Novella 2000 magazine.
"He can have sex six times a week, without overdoing it. And on the seventh day he should rest.
"It's not a bad average, especially for a 74-year old man who has shrugged off a prostate tumour," he added.
Scapagnini had also advised Berlusconi on "injections in the base of the penis which have an immediate effect" and the importance of "saving energy" by taking a 45-minute nap after lunch every day.
