No matter if we like to own up to it or not, we ALL masturbate. Here at ManCentral we think it's just a simple fact of life. When I was a teenager I would always hear stories about how stroking your cock could give you hairy palms, you could go blind, and of course everybody's favorite, masturbating will take you on the path to hell!
According to a study done by the magazine Men's Health, 95% of British men admitted to masturbating, while only 60% of women admitted to giving themselves some self love. Gloria Brame, Ph.D., a clinical sexologist has said the following about the topic: "It relieves stress and keeps everything about your body—your heart rate, blood pressure, reproductive system, brain chemistry—in very good shape."
A 2003 Australian study found that men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer. Regularly flushing your system, so to speak, keeps your semen healthy and prevents the build up of cancer-causing chemicals. Researchers say sexual intercourse doesn't provide the same benefit because it puts you at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted infection.
And finally Masturbation also helps combat premature ejaculation. If you can train yourself to last longer solo, you'll last longer with your partner. Let's face it who doesn't want longer lasting sex with the one they fancy?
