Good News Wednesday IV - The pleasing yourself edition

News men all over the world have (secretly?) been waiting for: Masturbation cuts the risk of prostate cancer! (bbc)

Apparently preventing cancer takes a lot of work... From the BBC: "Men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life." However, "they say sexual intercourse may not have the same protective effect because of the possibility of contracting a sexually transmitted infection, which could increase men's cancer risk." Sigh.

But I'm sure this is still good news for most men. Happy Wednesday!
