Study: Masturbating Could Help Prevent Prostate Cancer


Researchers in Australia have found that masturbation done frequently may cut men's risk of getting prostate cancer. The researchers believe that carcinogens may accumulate in a man's prostate if not ejaculated on a regualr basis.

The researchers studied more than 1,000 men who had gotten prostate cancer, and 1,250 who had not. They found that those between 20 and 50 years old who ejaculated regularly were one-third less likely to have prostate cancer develop.

The prostate creates a fluid used in ejaculating, which activates sperm and keeps them from bonding together. Animal studies show that carcinogens can be stored in the prostate and that frequent ejaculation tends to "flush out" these fluids.

No furry palms after all eh? I've often thought of this, since male lions can mate up to 50 times a day.

  Here is another reason  
that masturbation is not a shame thing.
I think it may help prevent another cancer
of the body of any part.

  They could have just said  
that sex is good for you, since the medical benefit is in the act of regular ejaculation, not specifically masturbation.

There is a joke on YouTube that states:

"Why do men get more money at sperm banks than they do at blood banks?"

"The sperm is hand made." (rim shot)

  My girlfriend is going to be pissed...
