Talk about getting lucky: Have an orgasm daily (or nearly that) and you’ll lower your risk of prostate cancer by 33%.
That’s right: Men who ejaculate more than 21 times a month are one-third as likely to get prostate cancer as those who get off only four to seven times a month (and yes, doing it alone counts, too), according to prepublication reports of the 10-year follow-up of a Harvard study from 2004.
The study’s authors hypothesize that getting rid of all that baby batter releases beneficial hormones or that flushing out the old sperm regularly may purge precancerous cells. And though they can’t comment on the record about their research till the results are officially published, we’re going to take their word for it and get started ASAP.
And in related news: To make sure you can get it up when you need it, try to have two or three cups of coffee (or the caffeine equivalent) a day, say researchers at the U. of Texas. Their study found that men who consume 85 to 170 milligrams of caffeine daily are 42% less likely to report any kind of erectile dysfunction. Docs think the caffeine relaxes arteries and muscles leading to the penis, allowing for more—and better—boners.
