Great news, guys! A new study has found that ejaculating at least once a day can help lower your risk of developing prostate cancer, the Mirror reports.
32,000 men participated in the study over the course of 18 years, making it the largest research to date on male ejaculation (or at least the largest scientific study). Participants shared their monthly ejaculation practices between the ages of 20 and 29, and 40 and 49.

Of the 32,000 participants, 3,839 eventually developed prostate cancer. Interestingly, men who reported orgasming more than 21 times a month showed a 22% lower risk of developing problems.
The study doesn’t provide any reasons why exactly ejaculating more often can help combat the likelihood of developing prostate cancer, but Dr. Jennifer Rider of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital says you shouldn’t get too excited by the findings just yet.

“While these data are the most compelling to date on the potential benefit of ejaculation on prostate cancer development, they are observational data and should be interpreted somewhat cautiously,” she told the Daily Mail. “At the same time, given the lack of modifiable risk factors for prostate cancer, the results of this study are particularly encouraging.”
Now, if you’d please excuse us, we need a few minutes to go and stave off prostate cancer.

If I stopped today, I would still be safe up until about age 140.
@Goforit: Amateur 😉
Too many men do not know what the prostate gland does. I have often thought that not having ejaculations very often is not healthy for your testicles or your prostate. We’ve had generations of religious shaming and not “touching” yourself. Even the practice of circumcision originally became popular in the attempt to stop masturbation in boys. Forcing ridiculous morality onto boys and men can only lead to serious problems down the road. I have always jerked off and I’m glad I do.
“The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis. The prostate is just in front of the rectum. The urethra runs through the center of the prostate, from the bladder to the penis, letting urine flow out of the body.
The prostate secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. During ejaculation, the prostate squeezes this fluid into the urethra, and it’s expelled with sperm as semen.
The vasa deferentia (singular: vas deferens) bring sperm from the testes to the seminal vesicles. The seminal vesicles contribute fluid to semen during ejaculation.”
@myloginname: I defer to the master. Guess I will just have to keep trying.
@Goforit: You will get there my child. You will get there. 🙂
I’ll NEVER have cancer THERE!
Does the fella come with the cure?
I guess I’ll never have to worry then!!!!

Does wanking count?
How about two or three?
Massaging your prostate, 2-4 times a week, either internally or externally, helps also
They got that right. Use it or loose it.
@Óscar ML K: If it does I’m in very much in the clear lol
@KidDeadpool511: very much in the clear(I hate typing on my phone)
Interesting to see the study seemed to stop at 49 years old. That’s disappointing.
It’s us elders who need the study participation.
It’s usually much later in life that men develop prostate cancer.
As we get older our testosterone decreases dramatically so interest in or the ability to perform is greatly diminished….in most cases.
It’s difficult, if not impossible, for us old farts to masturbate our flaccid penises. Imagine trying to push a rope. Very similar.
I still manage to reach orgasm even with my limp, these days pathetic penis. I try to rub one out a couple of times a month.
Just for health reasons, you understand. Strictly for science.
Sure it’s all for my health but even with such a limp penis the orgasm is still as good.
The elders I know have just given up completely because they can’t get erections anymore.
Don’t believe all the hype about the erectile dysfunction pills. That’s a real iffy situation.
None of the pills work for me…I’m 69.
Young men….have all the sex you can catch because your world will shift when you hit 50.
Choke it if ya got it.
If that’s the case I should have never had postate cancer!!
Didn’t they also claim getting castrated stops prostate cancer which is the reverse of what this study shows.
My urologist told me that massaging the prostate after the age of 16 slows the progression of prostate growth (which is the problem). There is no possible way to completely stop the growth. However, regular massages will slow the growth.
I need another external hard disk already, if I was suppose to follow this routine, I would need a data center.
I’ve always guessed this. Gotta keep it purged. Gotta keep it working.
Oh great. Now they’ve gone and turned a man’s last tax-free pleasure into a chore you have to remember to do every day.
that’s a blatant lie.

Welp, I’m likely in pre-remission then…turning back cancer before it even starts thinking about being cancer ;).
You know what they say. Probe the lobe! LOL.
Jon Jon Javellana
Been doing that since I was…. *smirk*
7 x a day for me….or more…. Can’t stop 🙂
Mmmm….I need to make a t-shirt! “Prostate Cancer Prevention Task Force – We Can Help”.
I won’t have prostate cancer for a thousand life times. Lol
If that were true prostate cancer wouldn’t exist.
I do both ejaculations and prostage massages regularly. I guess I am scot-free.
Prostate massages, I mean.
How about 5 a day?
I should never have an issue
I wish I had known this when I was growing up. That way, when my parents knocked on the bathroom door and asked me what was taking so long, I could have said that I was trying to prevent cancer.
That’s a lot of bs. I use to have self induced orgasms 4/5 times a week all my life and nevertheless tested prostate adenocarcinoma Gleason 9 (malignancy scale 2-10) at 47. I underwent radical prostectomy 2 weeks later and became impotent. how about that?
Unfortunately we all react differently to body issues.
No set guarantees.
Sorry about your situation.
Hopefully you can at least still get mentally aroused otherwise.
Is it you just can’t get an erection or is it you can’t have an orgasm regardless of your manipulations?
Whew! Good to know I’ll NEVER have to worry about prostate cancer. Mine is in TIP TOP shape! ^_^
@Rio50: I’m sorry to hear about your suffering. Unfortunately, a 22% reduction is not a 100% reduction.
I’d be curious to know what the rate of prostate cancer among Catholic priests is.
I have 3-4 orgasms everyday…
Cold pressed pumpkin seed oil is extremely good for the prostrate. Every man should take it. A teaspoon full 2-3 times daily.
Agree heartily. There comes a time in any man’s life, gay or straight, when accrued years, various ailments, and whatever gruesome treatments and chemicals keep them at bay reduce a man’s prowess to a shadow of what he was used to. And I say, when that day comes, the only sex any man regrets is the sex he turned down.
Even as an atheist I say, Amen brother, Amen.
Living in the SF bay area during both the golden years and beginnings of the plague, I turned away almost no one.
I can see the beauty and potential in every man.
Some of the best times I had were with some guy most others were ignoring.
Can’t judge a man by his bulge….or something like that.
@Rio50: Jesus. Sorry about that man. I guess the point is to use it while you still got it then.
I think the biggest threats to a healthy penis are diabetes, prostate cancer, and heart issues.
One thing to suffer from some health issue but something that fucks up my ability to have an erection and an orgasm would suck infinitely many times harder.
Nothing is more satisfying and health affirming then a good JO session or good sex. You know that type. Where your still tingling afterwords with that hard to describe everything is just alright feeling. You can’t buy that kind of pleasure.
Should you live long enough, your erections will greatly diminish or disappear completely.
Don’t put all your faith in ED pills.
As to your last statement about not being able to ‘buy’ that sort of feeling, well, yes, you can. Start with Rentboy.com….or check your local street corners.
Good fortune for you and continued successful wanking.

There is a thing called, genetics. Educate yourself!
and what does 3 do for you? just curious….
Just the one?
I should be cancer free for the next 1,000 years. Where are my dragons?
I never have to worry…..
I jack nearly everyday. I gladly help guys out. ð???
Put that on my to-do list!ð???
@jwtraveler: thanks, jwtraveler. it seems I was just lucky and unlucky at the same home run. I’m free of cancer 5 years after surgery, but still as limb as a snail.
@Sammy Schlipshit: Hi Sammy, thanks for replying. I had always been a top. After the shock, I started to bottom and I can reach an orgasm-like feeling, but it lasts even less than a regular one. Beause I do’t have a prostate to friction, it doesn’t feel the same. But whining is not my kind. I am happy to be alive and licking(!) at 55, 7 yrs’remission. Luckily, Rio is a prodigal city in hot, tanned and willing men.
@Stache99: Dear stache99 it isn’t all that bad. I’m free of cancer after 7yrs. I still can bottom. lol
@Stache99: on the top of all that, after surgery I lost half an inch of my peen. to connect the bladder to the urethra, they have to pull the peen back and stich it to the bladder. Horror. Today I just laugh about it. I’m alright. really.
Good to know I’m at least doing something right 🙂
