Health Benefits of Frequent Ejaculation
Remember the warnings and threats that parents used to give their sons about masturbation? “You’d go blind”, they’d say. “Your penis would turn black and fall off”. “Hair would grow on your palms”. One of my favorites is Kelloggs warning that you’d go crazy from masturbating. Well a few decades later and with more scientific research, more open minds and less religious controls, it turns out that quite the opposite is true: frequent ejaculations are good for your health.
You may think that ejaculation is just for making babies or the climax of sexual pleasure (a happy ending). However, there are very important health benefits of frequent ejaculation. Multiple studies show that frequent ejaculation is good for you. One very important health benefit is the reduction of your chances of getting prostate cancer.
Two statistically significant studies on the health benefits of frequent ejaculation were carried out in 2003 and 2004. Both studies showed a positive relationship between high frequency of ejaculation and low risk of acquiring prostate cancer. In other words: high ejaculation frequency seems to protect against prostate cancer.

Harvard carried out a study of nearly 30,000 men between the ages of 46 and 81. They reported their monthly ejaculation frequency in young adulthood (ages 20–29), in mid-life (ages 40–49), and in the most recent year before the launch of the study. Ejaculations included sexual intercourse, nocturnal emissions, and masturbation (with or without sex toys). The study revealed that men who ejaculated 21 or more times a month enjoyed a 33% lower risk of prostate cancer compared to men who ejaculated 4 to 7 times a month throughout their lifetimes.
The results of the Harvard study is further corroborated by an Australian study of 2,338 men. The Australian study found that men who averaged 4.6 to 7 ejaculations a week (20 to 30 times a month) were 36% less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 70 compared to men who ejaculated less than 10 times a month (2.3 times a week) on average.
The logic behind this is that frequent ejaculation helps to clear semen from your system, preventing the buildup of cancerous cells. During ejaculation, the prostate gland flushes out any toxins or carcinogenic cells. Hence frequent ejaculation protects you from cancer. This is why the practice of prostate milking (also called prostate massage) is highly encouraged, especially in men over age 40. But it’s best to start from young (20+). Prevention is much better than cure.
Even the National Health Service of the United Kingdom is encouraging pupils in high school to masturbate frequently, reports the Daily Mail. The NHS started a campaign entitled, “An Orgasm a Day Keeps the Doctor Away”. Pamphlets are being distributed to students, teachers and parents to educate them on the health benefits of frequent orgasm.
I remember my grandfather saying that healthy things are usually unpleasant. Boy was he wrong. Maintaining a healthy prostate never felt so good. There are a number of sex toys that you can use to make ejaculation even more enjoyable. Click here to find out more.
