Men Should Ejaculate At Least 21 Times A Month, Scientists Say

According to a Harvard University study, men should ejaculate at least 21 times a month, which will slash their risk of prostate cancer by a third.

Participating in ‘NoFap’ techniques may lead to devastating mental health issues, a study suggests.

Born out of groups on Reddit, the ‘NoFap’ movement urges men to avoid masturbation to boost confidence, focus and even cure erectile dysfunction. Those who abide by the practice even call themselves ‘Fapstronauts’. 

Researchers at the University of CaliforniaLos Angeles (UCLA) surveyed 587 men who had taken part in the abstinence practice.

They found that men said they felt worthless, shame, sad and in some cases suicidal when they ‘relapsed’. They were also more likely to report erectile dysfunction.

Experts support occasional masturbation and sex for its many health benefits. One Harvard University study even found that men who ejaculate at least 21 times a month slash their risk of prostate cancer by a third.

The UCLA scientists also found that many people on the online forums singing NoFap’s praises were doing so with little scientific backing. 

There is no scientifically-determined number for how often a man or woman should masturbate.

But medical professionals do urge people to undertake the habit occasionally, saying it can help to reduce stress, improve self-esteem and even, for men, reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

According to neurologists at Beijing’s Xuanwu Hospital of Capital Medical University, a 19-year-old boy was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in China.

  1. Find me a woman who likes sex 21 times a month and she will be the exception to the rule to be sure. Having to masturbate to get sexual relief when your female partner has a headache or does not want sex shows why sensible rich men have a Harem of women for their ongoing health. What went wrong, why are we only limited to one woman more self serving to her needs than to the man who she wishes to live with?

  2. I found one. Met her in 1983 and from the first time we had sex, it was every evening and twice on Sunday until 2010, with the exception of 3 days every month and the occasional vacation with her family to Myrtle Beach.
