Dedicating a significant amount of time to solo sex each month is beneficial to men’s health, experts have suggested.
New research found that in addition to relieving stress levels dramatically, the risk of prostate cancer is reduced in those who show themselves a lot of self love.
According to the study, men in their twenties who ejaculate at least 21 times each month are 19pc less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life compared to those who do not orgasm as frequently.
Men in their forties who masturbate 21 times each month or more are 22pc less likely to develop the disease.
The research, conducted in Boston University of Public Health, monitored the habits of 32,000 men for over 20 years and is the most extensive study of its kind in the area.
Lead author of the study Jennifer Rider said: “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.
“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.”
