FAQs
Does sex reduce prostate cancer risk?
A Cancer Council Victoria study from 2003 shows that there is evidence showing that the more frequently men ejaculate between the ages of 20 and 50, the less likely they are to develop cancer. The research showed that the best protective effect from ejaculation is when men in their 20s ejaculated on average seven or more times a week. These men were one-third less likely to develop aggressive prostate cancer when compared with men who ejaculated less than three times a week at this age.
