To reach these findings, researchers surveyed 31,925 men, sending them questionnaires about how often they engaged in self-love.
The study team then tracked the participants for 18 years, recording which men developed prostate cancer in that time period.
An ongoing series of portraits documenting users of the eponymous sex chat website, they depict men in various states of undress and poses, sometimes gazing blankly at the camera, other times masturbating.
The men were assessed at three different points: the year before the questionnaire was distributed, in their 20s, and again in their 40s. More frequent rates of masturbation were associated with lower rates of prostate cancer.
The study appears to show a statistically significant reduction in prostate cancer cases when the men masturbate frequently.
Previous studies have suggested that an active sex life may help to lower one's risk of cancer, but now the golden number of orgasms per month has been suggested by these researchers.
Luckily, the survival rate of those with prostate cancer is relatively high compared to other cancers, and depending on the stage of cancer, the treatment varies from non-invasive to surgery.
Radiotherapy and surgery (radical prostatectomy) are available for localized tumors, but the treatment can leave you with life-changing effects, such as incontinence (inability to control urination) and impotence (inability to gain an erection).
