Anatomy of Prostate and Male Reproductive SystemAs a fatal malignancy, prostate cancer ranks second only to lung cancer. While the exact cause remains a medical mystery, recent studies have shown an unequivocal connection between ejaculation frequency and the development of the disease. Research conducted by Harvard Medical School suggests that men who ejaculate more regularly are at less risk of developing cancer of the prostate than those who experience ejaculation less frequently.

The data compiled since the inception of the study in 1986, detailed in this article, presents some very interesting statistics:

"Compared to men who reported 4 – 7 ejaculations per month across their lifetimes, men who ejaculated 21 or more times a month enjoyed a 31% lower risk of prostate cancer."

A similar study done by Australian researchers also concluded that men who ejaculated more frequently showed a reduced risk of prostate cancer:

"In all, men who averaged 4.6 – 7 ejaculations a week were 36% less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 70 than men who ejaculated less than 2.3 times a week on average."

The Harvard study also found that men who ejaculated more frequently tended to have higher testosterone levels. As these are the same men who enjoy a reduced risk of prostate cancer, this suggests that any adverse effects of male hormones are somehow offset by a protective effect caused by frequent ejaculation.

While ultimately the results of these studies does little to shed light on the underlying cause of the disease itself, it does link the importance of early prostate health and development with sexual activities. It also raises some important questions such as what role ejaculate volume plays in the healthy functioning of the prostate gland. Does increasing the amount of ejaculate, as observed through the use of semen enhancers, help to further lower the risk of prostate cancer? While further research is certainly necessary, the knowledge gained from these studies is indeed good news for sexually active men.
