What was a popular discovery on the fact that ejaculation reduces the risk of prostate cancer has recently been confirmed. This gives the opportunity and an extra reason for every man out there to celebrate in style.
It seems as if it doesn’t even matter whether you are ‘shooting’ on your own or with company by your side, but the news might not be as pleasant for those who follow a certain branch of tantra.
In 2004, there was a seminal study that found out that the more often men ejaculated, the fewer chances were for them to get prostate cancer.
However, this research is a particularly provisional one. Prostate cancer emerges slightly just before the age of fifty (on average), and many of the participants of that study, were edging closer and closer to their peak danger years.
And while the study found that the ones that ejaculated the most frequently were at a much lower risk of developing prostate cancer, changing the frequency did not result in a significant benefit nor change.
As more research was needed, Dr. Jennifer Rider stepped up with an 8 to 18 year long study.
After having 31,925 men enrolled in that study, 3,839 of them have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, while 384 of them have died.
Those who ejaculated over 21 times a month were less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who ejaculated less than seven times, and as a conclusion, the cancer risk was reduced by a third.
Unfortunately, regular enjoyment doesn’t have an effect that can be measured on the more deadly forms of prostate cancer, but instead, it reduces those low-grade cancer risks.
That study was shown and presented at the American Urological Association annual meeting in the month of May, which coincided with the international masturbation month.
With a large sample that revealed intimate details and information, Rider (the presenter) was able to investigate the association between the numerous factors, and some of the results were quite the surprise.
“Ejaculation frequency was inversely associated with age, but positively associated with BMI, physical activity, divorce, history of sexually transmitted infection, and consumption of calories and alcohol,” she reported.
And as we have told you before, the health benefits of this type of sexual satisfaction extend beyond a single organ, but it’s definitely good to see that there’s a confirmation of the ejaculation and the prostate cancer link being true.
