Here are some ...: Masturbation would not affect how the prostate functions, but clinically, few/some men may swear by saying they voids easier with better urine flow after masturbation but only for a short time - 1-3 days. However, I would not advise men to masturbate for improving urine flow. If overdone with masturbation, some perineal discomfort may occur resulting from recurrent expected contractions of muscles

Reduces congestion: Regular ejaculation prevents painful back-up of fluid in the prostate. This back up may lead to inflammation or an infection known as 'prostatitis'
