Are there any health benefits to prostate stimulation during sex?

Sarah: I’m not a doctor, so I won’t pretend to know the real answer here. However, if you’re the kind of person who needs “antioxidants” to allow yourself a big, delicious square of dark chocolate every day, then I get it. So here’s some fake scientific study headlines you can read to yourself over and over while you plunder your nether hole for prostatic stimulation gold:
43% of men who engage in prostate stimulation during sex live to 100 years, other 57% immortal
Prostate stimulation can cause the penis to grow up to 2 extra inches annually
Oxford Study: Prostate stimulation causes a 15% increase in general sex appeal, and a 76% increase in sex appeal in cargo shorts or jorts*
*This is doubly false, because nothing can make you look sexy in cargo shorts or jorts.
In all seriousness, if you like it, you should do it. Even if you don’t know if you like it, you should definitely try it if you’re at all curious. You never know when you might find to be your next favorite thing.
Debby: None that I’ve seen in the scientific literature but there is increasing (though still tentative) evidence that ejaculation early in men’s adulthood (e.g., 20s, 30s) may be linked with decreased risk for prostate problems later in life. If you enjoy prostate stimulation during sex, cool — the mental benefits of pleasure and enjoyment have to count for something!
