More Sex, Less Risk for
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
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. "
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
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
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
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
