But only if you do it a lot. According to this article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (that's JAMA, for short), "high ejaculatory frequency" was associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer.
I realize that prostate cancer trends a little old for my regular readers, but, hey guys, preventive measures are more effective the earlier you start. You're welcome.
So how often is "high frequency"? 21 or more times per month--and the aforementioned ejaculation can result from masturbation, wet dreams, or good old fashioned fucking. The prostate doesn't care.
Now I hate to speculate, but the only major cable news network that covered this story was FOXNews.com, begging the question, "Do FOXNews viewers have lower ejaculatory frequency than CNN or MSNBC viewers?"
Or maybe Bill O'Reilly just covered the story so he could say "ejaculate" and "masturbation" on the air.
