A new study finds men who are sexually active in their 20s and 30s are more likely to develop prostate cancer " especially if they masturbate frequently.

The message, perhaps: Hold off until middle age.

The study also found that frequent sexual activity in a man's 40s appears to have little effect and even small levels of sexual activity in a man's 50s could offer protection from the disease. Most of the differences were attributed to masturbation rather than sexual intercourse.

The study, led by the University of Nottingham, looked at the sexual practices of more than 431 men who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer before the age of 60, together with 409 controls who do not have prostate cancer.

Among men with prostate cancer, 34 percent had masturbated frequently in their 20s, compared to 24 percent among the control group. A similar spread was found for men in their 30s.

The results, based on questionnaires, are detailed in the journal BJU International (the British Journal of Urology).

The prostate gland secretes a milky fluid that mixes with sperm and seminal vesicle fluid to become semen. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, after lung cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 30,000 die from it each year.

"We were keen to look at the links between sexual activity and younger men as a lot of prostate cancer studies focus on older men as the disease is more prevalent in men over 50," said lead author Polyxeni Dimitropoulou, who is now at the University of Cambridge.

"Hormones appear to play a key role in prostate cancer and it is very common to treat men with therapy to reduce the hormones thought to stimulate the cancer cells," Dimitropoulou said. "A man's sex drive is also regulated by his hormone levels, so this study examined the theory that having a high sex drive affects the risk of prostate cancer



Now, we must worry whether we will first

or
2 GET CANCER

The hell of this research is that I recall, last year, a study that reached exactly the opposite conclusions.

What would you expect from studies of a bunch of jerk-offs?

@DrewDad,
There is a "vas deferens" in the conflicting research results. Anyway, both cicerone imposter and I have talked about our treatments for prostate cancer. Phoenix has talked about her husband's treatments. I think most males over 50 have some degree of prostate cancer or at least a somewhat elevated PSA.

I thought the hair that would grow on one's palms would automatically lessen the amount of this activity, anyway?

@Merry Andrew,
Is it wrong of me to want this topic to line up with Looking for a Perfect Food - Nutritional, Portable, Storable?
