I would like to know the effect of masturbation on prostate gland, particulary for a healthy person of 46/47 years of age, who does it almost on a daily basis.

    My consultant said masturbate and/or have sex frequently to help with prostate health, but there is also some advice from the experts that recent orgasm can increase PSA levels transiently, so avoid immediately prior to PSA blood test. I think there are mixed views on this and not neccesarily proven?

    I've heard there have been studies (in Australia, I think) that conclude it's either harmless to ejaculate regularly, or even does good. My urologist has never asked about my sexual habits, but has prescribed Cialis to help me out! I'd say carry on as you are, with the proviso as others have stated to avoid a couple of days before blood is taken for psa testing.

    Have read that regular ejaculation is good for prostate health especialy as a P.C.preventative.

    If you have sex with a partner or masturbate then your prostate is earning its keep otherwise its just a passenger.

    Might be a good point to pass on to younger men rather than wait for prostate probs to start as they get older.

      Someone on a forum here was having sexual difficulties and could not finish and went for counselling. It was suggested that he had ‘gone off his wife’ and was offered a sex partner or a surrogate to see if that was the case. Grossly offended he walked out. Surprising what the NHS will do for you.

    I have read some reports that say it is good for prostate health, but recently read another that said that it was mostly a myth.  There is no data to back such claims.

    The studies I've seen are about frequent ejaculation helping to prevent cancer of the prostate. I haven't seen anything that says it can cause ot worsen prostate enlargement or cancer, so I'm just saying do what comes naturally for you and don't worry about it.

    It may or may not be good for your prostate but I'll tell you this...habitual masturbation will wreck your sex life. Your hand provides a much more intense sensation than a vagina and habitual masturbation can desensitize your penis to the extent that you can't do it with a woman anymore. 

    I have read so much on this...even young guys in their twenties become impotent because of habitual porn and masturbation. The only cure is to go off porn and masturbation for at least 100 days. 

    Google it...there's a ton of stuff on it.

      Maybe not Pepasan, but on this site we look at ALL the health ramifications of issues that people raise. I'll go one step further...in case you think I'm being judgemental, I'm speaking from personal experience.
