How frequently should men masturbate? It turns out that the answer to that question is twenty-one, the reason being that there are many health benefits to it. But what are the effects of masturbating to men exactly? How can it improve overall health? Why is it such a good idea?
Consistently Boosts Men’s Mood
Masturbating 21 times each month will do wonders for your mood. As we all know, during an orgasm, the brain releases happy chemicals. The hormones that are released during the climax are known as dopamine and endorphins. They are in charge of desire, pleasure, and even our motivation. So, with each orgasm, your mood will significantly improve.
It is a simple trick that will help improve your day (or night). Additionally, it feels good. It is the easiest way to battle stress and anxiety, and you will feel more relaxed after each orgasm. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should spend the entire day touching yourself. So, be reasonable. Twenty-one sessions a month is enough.
Reinforces Immune System
There aren’t many studies on male masturbation. But those that do exist show that there is a link between masturbating frequently and a stronger immune system. It turns out that men who masturbate will be healthier.
The scientists tested the blood of participants that masturbated and those that didn’t. They tested it for various markers like lymphocytes and leukocytes, and the results were rather impressive. Masturbation increases the activity of certain components that affect the immune system. Namely, leukocytes are in charge of fighting cells infected by viruses or cancer.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that masturbating will help fight any disease. The immune system for the participants of the study was already working. Masturbation just helped it work better. Unfortunately, there aren’t many studies that cover the topic, and it is still unclear how much of an impact it will have on overall health. But there is no denying that having regular orgasms is good for you.
Lowers the Risk of Prostate Cancer
Probably the most important thing about masturbation is that it lowers the chances of developing prostate cancer. Recent research from Harvard University published in European Urology showed impressive benefits of masturbation.
The sample included 31,925 men, and it was all about masturbation frequency. Those who did it often managed to reduce the chances of prostate cancer by one-third! And this is huge. If we take a look at the U.S., one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their life. It is a lot more common than you’d think.
And no one can say that there is a better way to lower the chances. Unfortunately, this isn’t a method to treat the condition if it appears. Furthermore, the prostate is in charge of producing fluid that is a part of semen. Regular masturbation helps the prostate release excess (build-up) fluid and protect it in the process.
Continuously Improves Men’s Sex Drive
Having orgasms regularly will do wonders for your libido. One thing that everyone knows is that arousal is born in our brains. And the same thing applies to pleasure. The more we experience it, the more we want. This means that men who ejaculate will experience pleasure more frequently, and they will want more of it.
If a person doesn’t have sex for a while, they will stop thinking about it. It is quite interesting how quickly we can get used to things. And after a while without orgasms, the person won’t think about them at all. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about your body. Explore different things that make you feel good. Try out something new. The options are limitless.
For those interested in improving their sex lives, there are so many things you can achieve through masturbation. Needless to say, this isn’t something you should do if you don’t feel like it. It is not a medicine that you need to take three times a day. The idea is to feel pleasure, so don’t push yourself for no reason.
Improves Sleeping Habit
Masturbation is one of the simplest ways to lower our stress levels. At the same time, having an orgasm will help you feel relaxed. And with it, you’ll be able to fall asleep easier. If you are struggling with your sleeping habits, regular masturbation can help you get things in order.
There are several reasons why that is the case. Firstly, we tend to overthink things. Our minds wander when we go to bed, and having an orgasm can help clear the mind. Orgasms also help our brain reduce the production of cortisol, which is the natural stress hormone. With lower stress levels, you will feel incredible, and it will help you fall asleep with ease.
Another interesting thing is that doing this will make your brain associate orgasms with sleep. It is a form of training. And strangely enough, it is just one example of Pavlovian conditioning. Finally, having an orgasm can also decrease pain levels, which will only improve the situation and make it a perfect moment to sleep.
