The study looked at how ejaculation frequency affected prostate cancer risk over the course of 18 years.
And it wasn’t just young guys who saw the benefit: Men 40 to 49 who ejaculated at least 21 times per month reduced their risk of developing prostate cancer by 22 percent.
More research is needed to determine what’s responsible for the link, but it might be that more frequent clearing of the prostate through ejaculation could cut the chances that tumor-triggering infections may develop there, noted study author Jennifer R. Rider, ScD, MPH
The study showed a dose-dependent relationship between ejaculation and prostate cancer risk, meaning that the more you do it, the more your risk decreases, she stated.
So even ejaculating just a few more times each month can likely bring some benefits to your prostate.
And it doesn’t matter whether you orgasm with your partner or on your own the advantages of ejaculation are seen regardless of whether you’re having intercourse or just masturbating.
