Harvard Study Concludes Men Should Have An Orgasm-A-Day For Health

May 19, 2015 2 min read

We're going to go out on a limb here and assume most men don't really care if there's health benefits to rubbing one out. I mean, honestly, "I felt like it", got you this far. But now there's actually scientific research to back you up and give you the argument of your own longevity. And let's be real, if Havard Medical says to audition your hand puppet on the daily , we think you'll make the sacrifice - for science. According to Daily Mail:

Regular orgasms can reduce the risk of prostate cancer

The researchers, from Harvard Medical School, did not explain why orgasms could lower prostate cancer risk.

However it has previously been theorised that regular orgasms may flush out cancer-causing chemicals in the prostate.

The new study is the largest to date on the frequency of ejaculation and and prostate cancer. The researchers found that men in the 40-49 age bracket who ejaculate 21 or more times a month reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 22 per cent. This was compared to men who ejaculate four to seven times a month. The study followed almost 32,000 healthy men for 18 years, 3,839 of whom later were diagnosed with prostate cancer. Men were asked about their average monthly frequency of ejaculation between the ages of 20 to 29, 40 to 49, and in 1991, the year prior to the questionnaire. They found that the more frequently a man ejaculated throughout his life, the lower his risk of prostate cancer at all three of these points in time.
And there you have it. The next time someone tries to give you a hard time (even thought that's exactly what you're going for) you just have to look them in the eye and ask if they'd rather you die from prostate cancer. Mic drop. Resume  treatment. You're welcome.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
