A 39-year-old member asked:

Is constant ejaculation bad for enlarged prostate?

Dr. Gregory Lewis
Urology 46 years experience
No: Because of the many contradictory beliefs and popular lore regarding masturbation and ejaculation and the absence of good, reproducible, scientific evidence, there is much confusion. In general, the body is very good at self-regulating its glands and it is likely that too little or too much ejaculation (however one defines these) has any significant beneficial or adverse effect on the prostate.
