Masturbation Linked to Cancer
Men who masturbate frequently in their 20s and 30s have a higher risk of developing prostate cancer.
Researchers at the University of Nottingham surveyed 800 men, about half of whom had suffered prostate cancer, and found that the more sexual activity they had engaged in as young adults, the more likely they were to have been stricken with the disease. While a higher rate of intercourse did contribute to this discrepancy, most of the difference was attributed to self-love.
On the other hand (pun intended), the same study suggests masturbation and sexual intercourse past the age of 40 may actually reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
Despite previous links to blindness and hairy palms, we fully expect masturbation to survive this latest PR problem.
