Listen up! Science has a message for you about taking care of your health. It turns out that part of it involves doing something you might already do – pleasuring yourself at least 21 times every month.

Yes, you read that right. A study published in a scientific journal called European Urology has shown that if you want to lower the risk of getting prostate cancer, simply put, regular "me time" could actually help.

Although many people survive prostate cancer, it's much better if you can avoid it altogether. If science is saying that having a regular "happy time" can help prevent this danger, it's a pretty positive thing to consider.

Other studies have also suggested that having a healthy sex life and reaching climax often can bring down the risk of cancer. But now, science has pinpointed a specific number a kind of magic number that might be the key to this benefit


It seems that guys should try to have an orgasm about 21 times a month whether by themselves or with someone else. And if you want to have more, well, that's okay too!

Scientists don't know exactly why having regular orgasms might help lower the chances of prostate cancer. Some experts think that it could be because orgasms might help get rid of harmful stuff in the body that could lead to cancer. This info comes from IFLScience.

A bunch of researchers asked around 31,925 guys about how often they had a particular kind of fun over 18 years.

The study's conclusion was that men who had more orgasms in their adult lives were less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer, especially the less serious kind.


This isn't the only research connecting masturbation and a smaller risk of cancer. In 2003, Australian scientists asked over 1,000 men with prostate cancer and 1,250 without it about their sexual habits.

They found that the men who had orgasms more frequently between the ages of 20 and 50 were less likely to get cancer. One researcher explained that regular orgasms might keep the tubes in the prostate clear and healthy.

So far, studies have only shown a link between having more orgasms and a lower chance of prostate cancer. While we don't fully understand why, it's something that many of us can appreciate.


But even though it's good for health, it's still important to do this in the right place and at the right time. Surprisingly, 14 percent of people in the UK admitted to doing this at work!


Then again, it turns out that having a bit of fun like this might actually make you better at focusing and getting work done. Some workplaces have even given their employees special places with VR technology where they can relax and do this kind of stuff.

Not everyone believes that you can lower your chances of prostate cancer by masturbating. Some people who haven't done it have actually found it really good for their health.

One guy tried not masturbating for three months and felt much more energized physically. He also felt more alert and active in social situations.


He eventually decided to quit masturbating completely. He said it made his life better and allowed him to enjoy things beyond just the quick pleasure of masturbating.

But remember, there can be risks if you do it in the wrong way. Like a 20-year-old guy from Switzerland who did it so intensely that he ended up in the hospital with breathing problems.
