Since that little blue pill Viagra is turning 20 years old, we thought it was only right for all you folks to give your pal some extra attention down below. Well, more so than usual. And now you have a good excuse because according to a new study men should be tugging away until completion 21 times a month in order to decrease their chances of getting cancer.

According to The LADbible, researchers at Harvard University have also discovered that high levels of sexual activity can reduce the risk of contracting prostate cancer. Hear that? More sex, less chance of prostrate cancer.

The study observed the sexual habits of 32,000 men and in conclusion determined that those with a higher rate of ejaculation were less likely to have prostate tumors. The study states:

“We found that men reporting higher compared to lower ejaculatory frequency in adulthood were less likely to be subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer. This large prospective study provides the strongest evidence to date of a beneficial role of ejaculation in the prevention of prostate cancer.”

The magic number? 21. Apparently 21 ejaculations per month can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 33 percent. Quite why this helps the prostate is yet to be fully determined, but scientists have speculated that it may flush toxins out of the system.

But it’s not just stuffing your hand down your pants that will ward off cancer, according to Dr. James Balch it also has to do with a diet. Here’s what good old Balch had to say:

“If a man wants to stay out of the operating room and avoid cancer of the prostate, he needs to go full blast to avoid the high-fat junk food and environment toxins that contribute to prostate problems.”

And if you’re worried about cancer, here are some symptoms: need to urinate more frequently, difficulty in starting to pee and a weak flow. So look out for these symptoms and head to your doctor if you’re concerned. Just tell them Mandatory sent you. You can then high-five.
