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.
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.
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:
