Frequent Ejaculation

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.


How Frequently do you Ejaculate?

More than 30 times per month
20 to 30 times per month
10 to 20 times per month
Less than 10 times per month

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.

    What a great info man, when I was younger I felt so guilty for doing that too often, sometimes even 3 times a day.
    I m very curious, about the male sex toys, I´ve heard about them, but never tried.
    Thanks and wish you all the best

    P.S. My prostate feels much better now knowing all of this.

      LOL. Thanks David for your fun comments and for making my day. Prostate health is something we men often ignore. Out of sight, out of mind. But it comes back to bite us later on in life. So I’m glad we can shed a little light on the situation and raise awareness of the importance of sex in terms of having a healthy prostate.

      You mentioned that you used to feel guilty about “doing it” too often. Here’s a post we did recently on overcoming sexual shame. Have a read and let me know what you think –

      All the best

    I have to step my game up. LOL “7 ejaculations a week (20 to 30 times a month) were 36% less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer”. That’s at lease one a day 😉

  3. Also its important to get prostate cancer screening early . 50 years old is usually when you go in for them as well as colorectal screening. As far as ejaculation goes I have heard this and I’m sure it is beneficial at least that’s what they tell me at the VA. I better start shooting for the stars here and get moving! Great post!

    • Kay says:

      Thanks for your comments David. Yes, you are right. Colorectal screening and other regular check ups are totally recommended. Don’t just rely on frequent ejaculation as the cure all. See your doctor too!



  4. Powerful stuff. I’ve always heard there were benefits to frequent ejaculation but didn’t know this much. As long as frequent ejaculation doesn’t affect your social or professional life then It’s all good.

    Im even more for it if doing so can prevent cancer. I’m 28 now so I think it’s time to start considering ways to consistently take care of my body. Thanks for the article.

      Thanks Michael,

      I think we often don’t appreciate sex for what it is. We take it for granted. You’re still young, so it’s a great time to start doing the right things and making the right choices for your health. There are other things you can do to develop a healthy prostate. For example, including saw palmetto and lycopene (the red stuff in tomatoes) in your diet will help create a healthy prostate. So don’t just rely on frequent ejaculations. I know that latter is much more fun, but it’s just one way of keeping your prostate healthy and definitely not the only way.

      Thanks for sharing



  5. It’s great to hear that all my hard work over the years will actually pay off. 🙂 But seriously, this is great information for men of all ages to know, but probably don’t. On the other end of the spectrum, do you think there is any danger of over doing it as my teenage son sometimes worries me? I am sure it is normal but hey, just being a dad.

    • Kay says:

      Thanks for sharing Patrick. I understand exactly what you are talking about. You should only worry about your son if his ‘activities’ are affecting other areas of his life such as school or having healthy friendships. Also, as long as he is not doing anything extreme that could physically harm him, he should be OK. Our research shows that this is normal teenage behavior and he should never be lead to feel as if he is abnormal or a bad person in any way.

      I also agree with you that most men are unaware of their sexual health and the do’s and don’ts. The subject of this article is one point in question.

      This might also be a useful read for you, especially if you are over 40 years old – check it out

      Best Regards

    Prostate cancer is risky thing I actually know the risks of these bodybuilding things and so many guys get it. I think because of supplements. Anyway and I think I really should increase the number 😉 Thanks for great tips.

    • Kay says:

      Yes, Furkan, using muscle mass supplements and excessive proteins can increase your risk. But drinking lots of water to flush your system and regular emptying of your prostate can help improve your chances of a healthy prostate.

      Thanks for stopping by

      All the best
