STUDY: If You Have Sex With 21 Different Women Your Risk Of Prostate Cancer Decreases
Only catch: You have to fuck them all at once.
According to University of Montreal, you just have to hit 21 in your lifetime to feel the benefits, or, more accurately, before you hit the age where prostate cancer becomes a real concern.
Per The Telegraph:
“It is possible that having many female sexual partners results in a higher frequency of ejaculations, whose protective effect against prostate cancer has been previously observed in cohort studies,” said lead researcher Dr Marie-Elise Parent.
When a man has slept with more than 20 women during his lifetime there was a 28 per cent reduction in the risk of having prostate cancer, and a 19 per cent reduction for aggressive types of cancer.
Based on the percentages above, I think it’s safe to assume that once you hit 84 sexual partners you’re immune to prostate cancer. That’s how science works, right? If 21 women reduce my risk of by 28%, then being a sexual go-getter and sleeping with 100 means I’m not only 100% immune, but I could technically rub my hands together like Mr. Miyagi and give some poor sap who isn’t worth his salt in the sack my excess immunity. You can’t possibly convince me otherwise.
Seriously, though, these finding from researchers at the University of Montreal come with an actual catch. And that is that the outcome for gay men is a far less sunny one.
On the other hand, those who have slept with more than 20 men are twice as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer of all types compared to those who have never slept with a man. And their risk of having a less aggressive prostate cancer increases by 500 per cent compared to those who have had only one male partner.
Dr Parent said that she could only formulate “highly speculative” hypotheses to explain the association.
“It could come from greater exposure to STIs, or it could be that anal intercourse produces physical trauma to the prostate,” she said.
This study, which was published in Journal Cancer Epidemiology is the first of its kind. Till now, no other study has been used to develop a link between the number of sexual partners and the risk of developing cancer.
