Ejaculation is essential in human survival. After all, we all come from there (not to mention how great it feels).
Not only that, frequently ejaculating--whether it be from fapping, sex, or even wet dreams-- was also found to reduce the risk of prostate cancer! How frequent?
A study in 2016 gathered a total of 32,000 men from 1992 to 2010 to answer that. And they found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times per month during their 20s had a reduced risk of prostate cancer by 19 percent compared to those who just cum seven times per month or less. Men in their 40s who ejaculate frequently are even 22 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer!
“While our findings should be confirmed in studies that evaluate the potential biological mechanisms underlying the observed associations, the results of our study suggest that ejaculation and safe sexual activity throughout adulthood could be a beneficial strategy for reducing the risk of prostate cancer,” says Jennifer Rider, author of the study.
Another study in Australia showed that on average, men who ejaculate 4.6 to 7 times a week were 36 percent less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than men who cum less than 2.3 times a week.
However, according to ATTN, “there’s no magic number of times a person should ejaculate to reduce their risk. What the study findings suggest is a dose-dependent relationship, where the risk becomes lower the more frequently a person ejaculates.”
Even though that the connection between prostate cancer risk and ejaculation is clear, researchers are still puzzled as to why
they are linked. However, Rider has a theory about this. “Ejaculation frequency is, to some extent, a measure of overall health status in that men at the very low end of ejaculation—zero to three times per month—were more likely to have other [medical problems] and die prematurely from causes other than prostate cancer,” she told Reuters.
Now you have another reason to release your energy more frequent.
