!! OMG, no: Masturbating and Prostate Cancer? !!

There’s a new study out that suggests high sexual activity in your 20s and 30s may increase your chances of developing prostate cancer.

Men with prostate cancer were also more likely to masturbate frequently than men in the control group, with the greatest difference in the twenties (34% versus 24%) and thirties (41% versus 31%). The differences were less pronounced in their forties (34% versus 28%) and by the fifties the cancer group was slightly lower (25% versus 26%).

  1. That is bunk. If that were the case then every single guy would have prostate cancer. The longer a guy lives, the higher his chances of getting prostate cancer, simple as that. So basically die before you’re 65 and you should be okay, lol.

  2. I thought masturbating was supposed to help provent, now they’re saying it can help cause. UGH! Whatever.

  3. Nonsense. Last year there were ‘studies’ that indicated frequent ejaculation reduced the risk of prostate cancer. They’re probably both statistical noise. There is no way to really isolate the frequency of that one act and correlate its effect on different men unless the effect is huge. Also, correlation is not causation. Laymen and especially reporters always confuse the two with such studies, when the most the science says is that any trends may be worth more detailed study to figure out what’s really going on.
    Anyway, what man is going to have less orgasms even if having fewer leads to a reduced risk of something decades in the future?

  4. Dammit, I always thought that if you kept it busy, nothing would be getting rotten in there. 🙁

  5. Im confused…
    I thought there was a study that said guys who did it fairly often were LESS likely to develop prostate cancers?

  6. Hey…does that mean if I keep doing it until I am in my fifties that I will reduce the chances of getting it?
