Masturbation boosts immunity and helps prevent cancer

An Australian study carried out in 2003 revealed that men who masturbated more than five times a week were a third less likely to suffer from prostate cancer because ejaculation helps to flush out the toxins that cause disease. What’s more, when you reach orgasm, your body increases its production of the natural cortisol hormone which – in small doses – helps to regulate and strengthen your immunity. Add to that the fact that masturbation boosts your mood and makes you last longer during sex and we’re pretty confident that this is one surprising health booster that you won’t see as a chore.
