Sleeping Around Reduces the Risk of Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer-related cause of death in men. Sexual experience influences the risk of the disease— according to a study by Marie-Élise Parent and co-workers from the University of Montreal. Men who had sex with more than 20 women reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 28 percent. Conversely, men who had more than 20 male partners doubled their risk of the disease. Frequent ejaculation seems to protect the prostate from cancer. Receptive anal sex, on the other hand, might injure the prostate and increase cancer risk. Their results were based on a study of 1,590 men with prostate cancer and 1,618 age-matched control. (Cancer Epidemiology, published online October 8, 2014)
