Ejaculating more could lower your risk of prostate cancer and may make you generally healthier, according to researchers.

According to ATTN, a 2016 study found that from a sample of 32,000 men followed over a number of years, participants in their 20s who ejaculated 21 times per month or more "were 19 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who ejaculated seven times per month or less."

A different study conducted in 2003 backs up these findings. It compared the cum-frequency of 2,300 men, half who had already been diagnosed with prostate cancer. According to ATTN, it found that those who blew their load "five to seven times per week were 36 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer compared to those who ejaculated less than two times per week."

While it's clear that ejaculating frequently lowers your cancer risk, researchers aren't exactly sure why. Jennifer Rider, the lead researcher in the 2016 study hypothesized that those who cum more are just healthier overall, saying "ejaculation frequency is, to some extent, a measure of overall health status in that men at the very low end of ejaculation — zero to three times per month — were more likely to have other [medical problems] and die prematurely from causes other than prostate cancer."

While the research doesn't point to the perfect number of climaxes per month, it basically says the more you cum, the better. The benefits were found for both solo sessions and with a partner, so if you needed another excuse, you got it.
