    According to an article in The New Scientist masturbating is good for you! It helps protect against prostate cancer.

    So put aside all the guilt and angst of your youth and whack away! It's for your health.

    ... The latest research has even better news for young men: frequent self-pleasuring could protect against the most common kind of cancer.

    A team in Australia led by Graham Giles of The Cancer Council Victoria in Melbourne asked 1079 men with prostate cancer to fill in a questionnaire detailing their sexual habits, and compared their responses with those of 1259 healthy men of the same age. The team concludes that the more men ejaculate between the ages of 20 and 50, the less likely they are to develop prostate cancer.

    The protective effect is greatest while men are in their twenties: those who had ejaculated more than five times per week in their twenties, for instance, were one-third less likely to develop aggressive prostate cancer later in life.

    Meh. I dunno.

    Prostate cancer risks get higher as you grow older, I don't think it has to do with how often you jack off.

    But then again, stats have been right before. icon_razz.gif

    *shrugs*

    Oh btw, i'm well within 5 times a week. icon_lol.gif

    A hypothetical situation.

    There you are getting your prostate examined at the doctors. He feels around, shines a light up the speculum and says "My god, you have the prostate of a 14 year old boy. How do you do it?".

    That is good news. I'm concerned about skin cancer though from all the friction. In my youth I rubbed the skin off on several occasions, before I discovered wesson oil.

    That's like the 90 year old chain smoker declaring that the link between smoking and disease is bullshit. One instance does not invalidate the overall statistical significance.

    I have heard this before. However a decrease in risk does not mean an elimination of risk.

    Masturbation is a totally harmless and, I think, positive activity. It helps keep the sexual frustrations at bay when you have no one else around, it is good exercise for the heart, and it is pleasurable!

    so, should this regimen be taken in conjunction with red wine extract, grape seed extract, green tea extract and a daily multiple vitamin full of antioxidants and dhea?


    how many minutes of cardio do i get to subtract each week from all this?

    (oh shit, i guess that means i'm back)

    For a really good jerk-off session 7 minutes (9 out of 10), for an average one 3 minutes (6 out of 10).

    Of course I am shooting from the hip here but it sounds reasonable. icon_cool.gif

    No, for a REALLY good session, edge for like an hour.

    all these possible prevention methods make me think of commercials for htings like, lucky charms, sugar crisp and other sweet food for morning consumption...

    "part of this complete breakfast"

    i keep imagining a still life showing half a grapefruit, glass of orange juice, 2 pieces of brown toast, an apple, and some guy jerking it... all next to a box of Cap'n Crunch.

    and welcome back jack. funny you choose a thread where your name is the subject matter.

    I recently had my physical and even though my PSA test came back just fine - my Doctor asked me how often did I masterbate -- then he said, "up that to twice a day. It will help keep your prostate operating well."

    I walk around smiling most of the day!!! >lol<
