Researchers claim that while an orgasm provides pleasure during sex, it may also reduce the risk for prostate cancer. It also provides a number of health benefits such as a boost in your immunity, better sleep, and can even protect against heart disease.

According to Dr. David Samadi at the David Samadi Prostate Cancer Center in New York, “Prior research shows a link between the benefits of sex and prostate cancer. This research adds to the evidence that ejaculation frequency, not the number of sexual partners, is the key factor in reducing prostate cancer risk.”

The study was carried out by scientists at the Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women Hospital. What they found was that if a male ejaculates at least once a day, he likelihood of developing prostate cancer are very low. The study data showed that the participants who ejaculated more than 21 times a month were at a 22 percent lower risk of getting the disease. As for how men achieved ejaculation, it is not a requirement to have a sex partner. Whether it be sexual intercourse, nocturnal emission, or masturbation, all are beneficial.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, prostate cancer is most common cancer among men (other than skin cancer) in the United States. According to the World Cancer Research Fund International, in 2012, there were more than 1.1 million cases of prostate cancer. This makes prostate cancer accountable for 8 percent of all new cancer cases, and 15 percent of cancers in men.

  • It is estimated that in 2015 in the United States, there were about 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer and about 27,540 deaths from prostate cancer.
  • About 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.
  • About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 66.
  • About 1 in 38 men will die of prostate cancer.
