If you’re a man worried about developing prostate cancer, there appears to be at least one preventative step you can take to lower your risk from the comfort of your own bedroom.
Several studies have linked frequent ejaculation — during sex, masturbation, or while you’re sleeping — to reduced risk of prostate cancer.
HOW MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE CAN EJACULATING REALLY MAKE?
According to a 2016 study published in the journal European Urology, quite a bit.
Researchers surveyed 32,000 men from 1992 to 2010 and found that participants who reported ejaculating at least 21 times per month during their 20s were 19 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who ejaculated seven times per month or less.
