More Sex, Less Risk for prostate Cancer 


Having Sex with multiple womenreduces the risk of prostate cancer or having sex constantly reduces the risk of prostate cancer?  


Being polygamy may reduce the risk for developing prostate cancer a study by three researchers has revealed. According to the researchers, men who have sexual relationship with more than 20 women are less likely to be affected by prostate cancer. The results of the study were recently published in the Journalof Cancer Epidemiology

"For men, having sexual intercourse with more than 20 women during their life is associated with a 28% lower risk of ever being diagnosed with prostate cancer compared to men who have had one sexual partner, " stated some scientists of the University of Montreal
(Université de Montréal). The news came out after a long period of study.

One of the researchers, Ms Marie-Elise Parent, a professor at the School of Public health, University of Montreal, who was explaining the reason of the lesser risk of prostate cancer in men who have had multiple female partners stated that “It is possible that having had several female sexual partners will result in a higher frequency of ejaculations, whose protective effect against prostate cancer has been previously observed in other studies". 

She also explained it is possible to draw the same conclusion for monogamy men who have just one female partner for many years but have constant or regular sexual activity. However, the study did not address this aspect.  "It may be that we have the same results with men who have sex with multiple women throughout their lives as well as men who have had an active sex life with the same partner for several years. When we start a new relationship, one may be more sexually active ", she said.  


More Sex does not automatically lead to and STDs 

On the other hand, study conducted on over 3,200 men - 1,590 of whom had been diagnosed with prostate cancer between 2005 and 2009 - shows that having had relations with several women does not automatically lead to more cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). "For each participant, the age of onset of first intercourse as well the number of sexually transmitted infections [STIs] contracted did not influence the risk of prostate cancer. Moreover, only 12% of participants reported at least already have an STI during their life, which is not much. "


Other results of the study showed that circumcision, surgical removal of the foreskin (prepuce) from the human penis, had a protective effect against prostate cancer. "We did not see any connection between sun exposure and cancer of the prostate. We did not analyze all the statistics. We are only at the beginning of the study, "says one of the researchers, Ms Parent.  


No Benefits for Male Homosexuals

More sexual intercourse between homosexual men does not provide any health benefits, but more risk to develop STD or prostate cancer. The advantages are for heterosexual individuals, people who practice sexual intercourse with opposite sex. A scientific study that began in 2002 has shown that men (homosexual men) who have had sex with over 20 men were twice as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Ms. Parent has speculated that the reason for this association could be the fact that homosexuality is associated with greater exposure to STIs, or it could be that anal penetration produce physical trauma to the prostate gland which damages it, thus makes it more susceptible unable to fight carcinogenic or pathogenic attacks. 


Opinions of Religious Researchers 

Some religious researchers explain the study to assure men who want to live a virtuous life. The results of the study do not encourage any man to engage in a life of debauchery
, trying to prevent prostate cancer by sleeping with multiple women as a therapy or prostate cancer prevention method. The benefits come from regular safe sex, not in practicing sex with multiple partners in it.
