I know that most of you come here looking for stories or information on *not* orgasming, but here’s something that popped up on the news feed recently:
Stories like this appear once in a while, but this time apparently someone was able to put a number to it. Ready?
Study finds men who ejaculate 21 times a month lower their risk of the disease by a fifth
Okay, that’s worth looking into.
A study has revealed that those men who ejaculate more often during their lifetime have a 22% lower risk of getting the disease.
The study doesn’t give any reasons why the practice of ejaculation may help to stave off prostate cancer, but there are theories which have been made public previously.
Oh, wait. I thought that we were going to have something a little more concrete than we usually see. But all is not lost:
The largest research to date on ejaculation followed almost 32,000 men in good health for 18 years.
Of the number, 3,839 later developed prostate cancer – but the figures showed that in the 40-49 bracket, men who ejaculated more than 21 times a month had a 22% lower risk of developing the disease.
Results were adjusted to take in other possibly contributing factors such as diet and lifestyle.
So, it looks like once you hit your 40s, you have to make orgasms a job: Once a day, Monday through Friday, and weekends off. That hits the 20+ mark on most months. Hell, when I was a younger lad, 21 was probably a minimum number for me.
You can read up on the rest of the article at The Mirror. I was hoping that they would have a link to the actual study, since Mrs. Edge is away this week and I’ve been trying to make up for lost time. For some reason I’m feeling a bit lethargic this afternoon, and I’m too lazy right now to hunt it down myself.
See, I, personally don’t have any problem with this “21 orgasms per month” program. In fact, I kind of like that number. Unfortunately, Mrs. Edge seems to have other ideas, and won’t be as easily swayed.
