CAN MASTURBATING KEEP THE DOCTOR AWAY?
A survey from Australia has concluded that frequent self-pleasuring,
particularly in young men, could protect against the most common kind of
cancer. The team found that the more men ejaculate between the ages of 20
and 50, the less likely they are to develop prostate cancer. They speculate
that ejaculation prevents carcinogens building up in the gland.
