A late night romp (or fiddle) is usually the answer to a stressful day at work. And it seems you might be doing yourself a power of good.
According to a recent study, ejaculating frequently can help reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men.
After surveying 32,000 men between 1992 and 2010, researchers found that men who ejaculated more than 21 times per month throughout their 20s, were 19 per cent less likely to develop prostate cancer.
Older than 40? Even better. Frequent ejaculation will reduce your risk by 22 per cent.
“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, lead author of the study.
A similar study in Australia found that men who averaged 4.6-7 ejaculations a week were 36 per cent less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 70.
