Even if they don't talk about it, it’s common for people of any gender or age to do it. Even before puberty, children sometimes discover that touching their genitals feels good. If you have kids and notice them touching their genitals, let them know that masturbating is completely normal, but something they should do in private. People masturbate for different reasons — it helps them relax, they want to understand their body better, they want to release sexual tension, or their partner isn’t around. Many people think that masturbation is only something you do when you don’t have a sex partner. But both single people and people in relationships masturbate. Some people masturbate often, others rarely, and some people don’t masturbate at all. Different people masturbate in different ways, for different reasons.

A Google search for “psychological effects of masturbation” turns up 10 pages almost exclusively devoted to sources claiming that masturbation is a terrible sin and promising to help masturbators “cure” themselves.

But a new study actually has something serious to say about the typical dude's favorite shower activity: Masturbating frequently could significantly reduce a man's risk of prostate cancer.

RELATED: 12 Things Men Must Know About PSA Tests To reach these findings, researchers surveyed 31,925 men, sending them questionnaires about how often they engaged in self-love. The study team then tracked the participants for 18 years, recording which men developed prostate cancer in that time period.
