Scientifically, Guys Should Orgasm Almost Every Day

Just as a fun little game, might we recommend shouting, ‘I’M HELPING YOU PREVENT CANCER!’ next time your boyfriend orgasms during sex?

We have AMAZING news! Every time your boyfriend has an orgasm, he might be lowering his future risk for prostate cancer. A study carried out by a team of scientists at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that male participants who orgasmed more than 21 times a month (there are 30 to 31 days in each month, so you do the math) were at a 22% lower risk of getting prostate cancer.

Considering that the Centers for Disease Control says prostate cancer is the second-most common cancer among men, this is really great news for frequent masturbators and sex-havers. We already knew that orgasms come (lol) with a lot of extra benefits, such as better sleep and cardiovascular health. For women, orgasms have been shown to possibly prevent breast cancer (nipple stimulation is especially helpful).

This new prostate cancer study is just one more thing to add to the already long list of reasons men should have an orgasm pretty much whenever humanly possible.

One thing worth noting, though: the research does clarify that the real health benefit comes from ejaculation – not sex with as many sexual partners as a guy can pick up. So yeah, that means masturbation is just as good for him in terms of preventing prostate cancer.

The research team also warns that the results of this study should be ‘taken cautiously’, since there a lot of variables beyond ejaculation that can affect a man’s risk for prostate cancer. But, just as a fun little game, might we recommend shouting, ‘I’M HELPING YOU PREVENT CANCER!’ next time your boyfriend orgasms during sex?
