Masturbation is no longer a taboo subject. Both women and men “resort” to this method to satisfy themselves, and fortunately, it comes with many health benefits. If so far we have talked about the benefits that women can enjoy after masturbation, this time we have men in the spotlight.
In some cases, it is part of the daily routine, as brushing your teeth is a must-have, as is masturbation and, specialists say, it is a completely safe habit and does not affect health, on the contrary. Gentlemen, here are the incredible benefits of masturbation.
Men and masturbation: benefits
Helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer
Following a study published in 2004, it was found that men who ejaculate more than 21 times per month reduce the risk of bad cancer by 33%, compared to men who ejaculate 4-7 times per month. In another study published in 2016, the researchers followed the same group of men and found that those who ejaculated 8-12 times a month reduced the risk of prostate cancer by 10%.
Helps strengthen muscles
As with kegel exercises, which help to strengthen and tone the pubic-coccygeal muscle, regular masturbation helps men achieve the same result, because they work the muscles of the pelvic area thus preventing erectile dysfunction and incontinence.
Helps you survive longer during sex
Not all men achieve the performance of providing a long-lasting sex match, and this is also due to the lack of exercise. Regular masturbation helps to overcome this less pleasant aspect, and if practiced an hour before sex with the partner, the man will enjoy more control. Normally, after masturbation, a man can reach orgasm in just two minutes. After the training, it should take three minutes, then four and so on, until the desired performance is reached.
Ejaculation helps to eliminate cortisol, the stress hormone, thus helping to regulate and maintain the health of the immune system. A small study published in 2004 shows that after 45 minutes of masturbation, men had more white blood cells.
Improves good mood
Masturbation favors the release of certain neurotransmitters from the brain such as dopamine and oxytocin, which helps improve mood.
