Stop that! you will get prostate cancer!

The world of prostate cancer is a ‘buzz’ with the news:

Although this may sound like something out of the “don’t do it because you’ll go blind” book of sexual repression, it’s not a joke. According to a report published in the January issue of BJU International, men who are very sexually active in their 20s and 30s, especially if they masturbate frequently, have a higher risk of developing prostate cancer. BUT – men in their 50s who have even infrequent sexual activity actually decrease their risk of developing prostate cancer.

One young pundit responded

So a friend of mine enlightened me to a beautiful study (sarcastic not sadistic): that prostate cancer is more likely in men with high sex drives.

It says that men who masturbated or had sex more than 20 times a month have an increased risk of prostate cancer.

I almost cried. First off, I swear, if that’s the truth, I know a fair number of guys (myself included) who will die by 27, and within the next three years, they’ll be peeing every 12 minutes because they have a prostate the size of a grapefruit.

Cancer is serious. Don’t laugh. Men who get their jollies more than 20 times a month aren’t laughing right now, and neither should you.   So my question is this: is it worth it?

Still, this is Australia and our research shows …

the Australian study compared 1,079 prostate cancer patients and 1,259 healthy men, and found that the men who ejaculated at least once a day during their 20’s were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer.

Well, as the jury is out, it’s up to you to determine if I am a ‘Stud’ or a ‘Wanker’.
