Recent research surrounding frequency of ejaculation and risk of prostate cancer has a bit of good news for the men of the world: the more you do it, the better off you are.
Boston University of Public Health conducted research that has discovered a reduced risk of prostate cancer in men who ejaculated at least 21 times or more each month.
Men between the ages of 20 and 29 are reported to be 19% less likely to develop prostate cancer by doing so, and men between the ages of 40 and 49 can achieve a 22% reduced risk for prostate cancer by doing so as well.
As is common with most research, more of it is needed to confirm what Boston University of Public Health has found in their studies. However, the general idea is that by clearing out the prostate frequently, through ejaculation, you reduce the likelihood of developing cancerous infections, according to Jennifer R. Rider., author of the study.
Jennifer’s study looked closely at the relationship between ejaculation and prostate cancer risk over the span of 18 years. Researchers found a ‘dose-dependent’ relationship between the two, meaning the more you ejaculate, the more you lower your risk of prostate cancer.
The best part is that they found no difference between ejaculating during sex and ejaculating during masturbation, meaning that even if you’re not having sex at least 21 times each month, you can still fight prostate cancer on your own!
So, there you have it. Do yourself a favor guys, try to ejaculate just a few more times than you normally would this month–it’s in your best interests.
