Celibacy Doubles Risk of Prostate Cancer | Sleeping with Multiple Women Reduces Risk – Study

Published

 on

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

According to a new study conducted in the UK, males who sleep with multiple women are approximately a third less likely to develop prostate cancer.

Researchers discovered that men who had 20 or more sex partners reduced their risk of prostate cancer by 28%, Daily Mail reports.

In addition, the study revealed that “men who have slept with more than 20 women reduced their chances of getting the most aggressive tumours by 19 percent.”

Also, it was disclosed that celibacy doubles the risk of the disease.

Speaking on the study results,Professor Parent, from the University of Montreal said:

“It is possible that having many female sexual partners results in a higher frequency of ejaculations, whose protective effect against prostate cancer has been previously observed in cohort studies.”

The study has caused quite a stir in the medical community, as it is the first to proffer that the number of female sex partners rather than the amount of sex (or masturbation) that could lower the risk of prostate cancer.

Hey BellaNaijarians, what are your thoughts on the study?

    Oh well, as long as they accept multiple partners also doubles the rate of STIs and co, no wahala.
    Sex has its benefits certainly but promoting this indiscriminate sleeping around is a no-no.

    what of sleeping with multiple men. does it reduce the risk of cancer. I want to get my freak on

      Unfortunately not, if unprotected, it increases your chances of getting HPV/cervical cancer.

      Eya Becca is new in town.

      Becca dear, bruno does not have a cervix (as he has made us believe he is a gay man) and therefore cannot have cervical cancer.

      His question is with regards to getting his freak on by him sleeping with multiple men (and not women as the study suggests) to reduce his own chances of getting prostrate cancer.

      Bruno take it easy o…

    This is ridiculous! What is the difference between having multiple partners and having sex multiple times. I find this an outrageous study!!!!!

      I guess maybe if a man is with one partner, he might get bored and won’t have sex as much as if he’s with multiple women and has to make sure his D game is on point. To this I say….

      …BULLSH*T

      For those of us that understand that this current world is just a stepping stone and getting to heaven is the ultimate Goal. It’s better to get cancer and go to heaven than whore around but end up roasting like asun in hell.

      Better stick to one partner (your wife). Same goes to you women, no ashewo work…or baby mama runs. Keep yourself, get married, then fu** the brains out of your husband

    Errmm if its about ejaculations, one can have it with one woman. Why with multiple partners??? Especially since the ejaculation with different partners is just a probability as seen below.

    “It is possible that having many female sexual partners results in a higher frequency of ejaculations, whose protective effect against prostate cancer has been previously observed in cohort studies.”

    • boon

      October 30, 2014 at 12:50 pm

      it is well known that time-to-ejaculation increases sharply with a single partner. With newer partners the male is quicker to ejaculate and hence the frequency of ejaculations is higher. Science has spoken!

    • radiant

      October 30, 2014 at 2:54 pm

      quicker ejaculation? frequent ejaculation? I thought we were speaking of the latter.

    if regular ejaculation reduces the risks of the disease, who says it should be with multiple partners!!!!! license to chase oooo…… oya line them up in one logogo line and fire james bond style. this LIFE is not fair. a sex addict gets enjoy all the sex with about 20 women and also gets protected from the disease hhhmmm

      Not necessarily, God’s beloved – Abraham, Jacob, King David, Solomon, the godly King Josiah et al all had very active sex lives with multiple wives/concubines but that didn’t impair their spirituality or relationship with God.
      (in modern day speak this would be adultery on the man’s side and fornication on woman’s concubines but G didn’t see it this way otherwise he wouldn’t have approved it.). Abraham, under his wife’s say so slept with Sarah’s slave. As did Jacob with both Rebecca’s & Leah’s slaves. David was only reprimanded for sleeping with another man’s wife but not with unmarried concubines (runs girls in today’s lingo).

      Taking the bible literally, monogamy is only prescribed for the priests so they have more time for church matters.

      becca, did u not read Jesus’ comment to the pharisee, reminding them that “a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his WIFE and they shall be one flesh?” notice he said WIFE not WIVES. Kindly interpret the bible correctly. nowhere did Jesus or any of his disciples advocate polygamy. God permitted Abraham and other faithful men back then, but as Jesus reminded the pharisee, that was not His purpose from the begining. that is why He created ONE woman for Adam. so pls, if u are looking at another woman’s husband and giving yourself this excuse to justify ur actions, kindly desist.

    • Becca

      October 30, 2014 at 6:31 pm

      That verse has nothing to do with monogamy, it was also referenced from the beginning in Genesis 2:24 but as we know, a lot of God sanctioned polygamy amongst his beloved characters still went ahead with no repercussions despite this verse being in place from the foundation of scripture/law of Moses. That verse cannot therefore mean monogamy. A man can become one flesh with multiple wives & God blessed his beloved with multiple wives! The Bible does not approve of polyandry duh, it was a patriarchal society!!!!

      (In reality you physically cannot be one flesh with your husband – it is the offspring of man/woman that become ONE FLESH – you as a person are the ONE flesh of your parents). Now if you read a few verses down in Matt19:8 JESUS REPLIED “Moses permitted you to divorce your WIVES….

      Paul (can’t find the verse) advised church elders to have one wife but didn’t make it a prerequisite for all.

      Becca, I was not going to respond to your comment (s) until you inferred that Matthew 19:8 permits polygamy because it reads ‘Moses permitted you to divorce your wives’. Please note that you and your in this statement are the plural forms of the pronoun not the single form of the pronoun. The statement could be re-written thus:
      Moses permitted Ade, Tobi and Chidi to divorce each of your wives because because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.
      The bible very definitely does not sanction polygamy in the new testament.

      These are a few verses which put paid to your points and your overall theory:
      1 Corinthians 7:2 -But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have HIS OWN WIFE and EACH WOMAN HER OWN HUSBAND.

      Deuteronomy 17:17-And he shall not acquire many wives for himself, lest his heart turn away, nor shall he acquire for himself excessive silver and gold.

      1 Timothy 3:2 -Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, The key to reading this verse is the phrase ‘above reproach’. This verse is clearly saying that to be of good character is to be married to ONE WIFE. Anything less than that is reproachable and therefore indicative of character flaws.

      1 Corinthians 6:16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” (NOTE THAT THERE IS NO REFERENCE TO CHILDREN HERE). You are joined to your partner as a spiritual ‘one body’.

      Mark 10:7- ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, And the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. (NOTE THE REFERENCE HERE TO A WIFE NOT WIVES)

      Malachi 2:14-16- But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”

      I could go on and on. Please go back and read your bible with discernment. Note that this is not an attack on what you believe but it was necessary to post a response for the sake of all those reading your comments who might take what you have posted as truth. The bible even says that any man who divorces his wife (except for the sake of sexual immorality) and marries another commits adultery. How much more if you are married to more than one at the same time?

      The bible is very clear- Marriage was designed to be a one man, one woman institution. Any teaching that does not conform to this standard while masquerading itself as the biblical word is simply a lie.

      I meant to say in the first paragraph – ‘Please note that you and your in this statement are the plural forms of the pronoun not the singular forms of the pronoun and the possesive. The statement could be re-written thus:
      Moses permitted Ade, Tobi and Chidi to divorce each of their wives because their hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning.

    Ermm… Since its the frequency of ejaculation that would help reduce the risks, cant the ejaculation happen with one woman?

    Must it be with multiple sex partners? Especially since its just a possibility that the ejaculation would happen frequently even with multiple sex partners as stated below.

    “It is possible that having many female sexual partners results in a higher frequency of ejaculations, whose protective effect against prostate cancer has been previously observed in cohort studies.”

    Chai!! I see what i woke ti this morning!BN is always in the spirit, seeing as i had the female ‘version’ of this one my mind last night. If to say i no be engineer and sabi type correct english i would have written and sent it my own article….but oh well! Here it goes…
    So i finally scheduled my first female exam with a gyno for next week. I’m almost 30 and i’m seeing a doc for the first time….IMO…not good! I partly blame it on being an unrepentant tomboy and mostly on this whole celibacy of a thing, as it has made me ignore my entire plumbing system….it would come to mind every now and then but i always procastinated since i’m not making use of it anyways…i have refused to see a doctor to get even common pap smear, not even after a friend told me about his colleague who was a virgin and died of cervical cancer 2yrs ago. He had gone on about how if she had been sexually active she probably would have paid more attention to her body, had visits to the gynecologist for birth control and other things. I obviously dismissed his ass, seeing as he was a toaster who had tried to get in my pants before we settled for being friends. Now that i’m going in, his words sprung to mind as i layed in bed. I haven’t paid my body any mind as a woman! Chai! Even when i have irregular period i just wait for it to come naa ni! Shebi Mary has done her thing and the Bible did not foresee another virgin birth so i just carry go and at most blame it on stress or bad diet. Same thing, for any form of discomfort, i’ll say its ph imbalance, and use over the counter stuff, shebi i hardly use public restrooms and don’t share a bathroom. I had two sisters who were sexually active before marriage… I remember laying in my bed in one corner watching her get ready for hospital visits or using something prescribed by her doctor and me thinking to myself, “which kain wahala this girl dey give herself?!”
    The closest i ever got to getting examined was about 6yrs ago when i was in naija for NYSC…some people had come to give free exams….after cringing at the thought of someone putting something in my vjayjay, i decided to go. I had befriended this deeper lifer called Tosin, and she was a virgin as well….we psyched each other up to go…but after she went in first, came out and described the ‘thing’ they put inside her, i just lied i was on my period and they let me go, lol.
    Now that is one brave virgin who went in (and even her vowed never to do it again), i’ve had a few friends just like me as well, one married at 27, never saw a gynevologist as well. Are there other folks with this experience as well? If i wanted to play blame games, i would blame my Ma who never gave me any talk on how to care for my body….in fact she didn’t even flinch when i gave her my list for school and i had sanitary towels on there….smh.
    Anyways sha, God dey….as i await my test on monday, the paranoia of the repercussion of my negligence outpowers the ever lingering cringe of the ‘equipment’ that would be ‘shoved’ in my punta.

    The study is not only stupid but very misleading as well. What the study failed to emphasis on is the correlation between high frequency of ejaculation and cancer development rate. It is clear that the more you ejaculate the lower your risk. Instead, the report took a misleading route endorsing promiscuity.

    one thing they forgot to highlight also is that
    1 Having multiply sexual partners can predispose u to lots of std that may have malignant transformation
    2. Been over sexually active can also predispose u to having immature sperm and in due time thereby leading to low sperm count

    This is not a study, just a PR gimmick. Btw Bruno, it depends whether you are a taker or a receiver, men who have anal sex can also get anal cancer and penile cancer, same HPV that leads to cervical cancer. Also men who do the giving have increased risk of urinary tract infections due to increased amount of bacteria in the anus. Furthermore ensure you are circumcised as that reduces risk of HIV and other STIs. If you are a taker, you don’t know when the partner has taken off the condom, which applies for both men and women. They didnt calculate the risk of death properly against risk of depression, suicide and murder associated with promiscuity…..

    October 31, 2014 at 1:28 am

    Thx for finding those scriptures for me, I was in such a rush so couldn’t really expatiate earlier.
    Firstly the bible must not be read in isolation otherwise proper understanding is lost. It has to be put in context! Understand the history, culture, language of the time.

    Now re: Matt 19:8, it grammatically could mean the plural form as he was addressing a number of Pharisees but historically monogamy was not the norm in Judaism. The Pharisees like other Jews practised polygamy. If monogamy was taken by the jews & early Christians as the definitive norm, Paul would have had no cause to request/recommend the church deacons & overseers in 1Tim3:2 to be ‘the husband of one wife’. This chapter (3) & its entails is a specific address to those who are or wishing to be deacons/observers. In the same chapter v8, Paul tells this designated grp to abstain from wine. However in 1Tim5:23 Paul advises on a general level ‘Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake…’

    This makes it clear that Chp3 was not a general rule of thumb for all but monogamy was recommended for deacons. Why specifically for them? Because according to 1Cor7:32 An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs….but a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. The mean therefore is not to forbid marriage outright but limit these divided interests amongst those concerned with the Lord’s affairs i.e. deacons to ONE wife. But again, that doesn’t apply to all
    .

    Re: one flesh –yes I meant to add that this could apply spiritually as well because 1 Corinthians 6:16 implies that a man (married or not) joined sexually to a prostitute becomes one flesh with her. That explicitly means that it is possible for a married man to be one flesh with more than one person! Physically or spiritually it is irrelevant, whether you sleep with your wife or a prostitute you become one flesh/body with that person. The same applies if he marries 2+ wives. He will become one flesh with wife 1 as well as one flesh with wife 2 and one flesh with a prostitute if he engages with such. So again ONE FLESH does not endorse monogamy.

    Re: 1Cor 7:2 – Understanding of language comes to play here. OWN does imply some degree of ownership but does not mean exclusivity! My OWN home is also home to others, they in turn will call it their OWN home. I have my OWN mother & father as do all but that does not mean my own mother is not someone else’s as well. My OWN mother is also the mother to my siblings. My own husband could also be the husband to another wife! You understand? Saying someone should have their own husband/wife does not translate to monogamy.

    Furthermore, from a contextual point of view – in the early days of the Christian church, Jewish polygamy clashed with Roman monogamy which was against roman law. Exceptions were made for the Jews at first until 393AD (almost 400yrs after birth of Christianity) when the Christians were compelled by law to stop their traditional polygamous customs (Christian Marriage: An Historical and Doctrinal Study). Monogamy in Christianity is as a result of the Roman influence to adopt/blend Christian belief with their own practices.

    The bible OT& NT definately doesn’t endorse Monogamy, there is no verse other than the address to the deacons which in favour of it. If it did, the early christians would not have continued with traditionally polgamy 400yrs AD. The staunch view on monogamy currently held is not from scripture but Roman interpretations and their pagan influences on christianity.

    Ready beyond the bible and learn the history of the religion and whilst you’re at it, also the history of marriage, the christian marriage as we know of it today only came into practice in the 18century,

      Becca.. please note that if you really want to consider history then you would need to start from the beginning of times. God Created Adam and “Eve” not Adam and “Eves”. Since sin crept into humanity, God left MAN to his own will but not without laws. Now these laws that first came in as the 10 commandments where to guide us to the truth but not bound us. Note that there are always consequences to breaking these laws. Was there any record that stated that God allowed the people of the old to practice polygamy? No! he never did. Neither did he command us not to (I agree with you on that though) The Law just guides us. Abraham, Jacob, King David, Solomon, (Your sighted examples) were humans and I dare say polygamy was just one of their few or many mistakes as humans; because if you have read the bible intently (like you are making us believe), then you would pick up the consequences that followed their decisions.

      Consider the bible as a well defined book of the law that properly elaborates the 10 commandments bringing to us acts, repercussions, guides and in practical stories that if well read and scrutinized with the help of the Holy Spirit will direct us in God’s will..

      Becca, God cannot lie… His words cannot return to him void… he is not mocked… whatever a man sows that he will reap…. He has made it clear enough that it is up to us to choose which way we’d rather go… good or bad.. Even though there is no clear law as “Thou shall not practice polygamy”.. but common! There are secret things of God in some statements in the bible that can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit.

      Some of our deeds or decisions (e.g polygamy) might seem innocent or harmless but a lot of baggage creep in with them.. Please consider everyone you know that has indulged in polygamy and kindly/sincerely share with us their experiences… we’ll be glad to know the good, bad and ugly. You are really intelligent Becca but the wisdom of man is not as wise as God’s foolishness and bible knowledge is definitely not complete without The Holy Spirit.

      He that has ears let him hear what the Spirit says to the church. Love you Becca………

    A big lie from the pit of hell, men be careful, please don’t be deceived so that you won’t be doomed forever.

      Not from Hell but from history and historical record. From history you can learn how the first Christians lived & what they believed in and subsequent how their practices were changed (by force) under the Roman Empire. Makes for very interesting reading! Scripture said the wolves would enter the church and strip it off the truth and cloth her in mockery and strange garments. That is exactly what the Roman Empire, stripped it off its tenants and replaced it with a blend of their own customs (monogamy) & most regrettably – pagan influence. That is the big lie from Hell!. I beseech you read up on this and learn how Christianity was before it was diluted by the Romans. Such a pity world history isn’t taught in Nigerian education.

      Back to polygamy in Christianity – Even the catholic church who some consider the ‘first church’ allowed monogamy & polygamy in the priesthood up until 1022 before banning marriage outright in 1139 when Pope Innocent II annulled all marriages in priesthood!.

    I have to say, I have thot about all @Becca has said on so many occassions and I wonder whr exactly the bible EXPLICITLY states that a man should marry just one wife…. Lets look at the hausas for example…they have more than one wife at home and its amazing how most of these women live in harmony (I served in katsina)…. I asked a colleague one time and he said for him its a measure against promiscuity, he’d rather have his ‘options’ permanently at home than having to jump from woman to woman looking for pleasure he’s not getting at home. And i personally think that is the most sensible measure to take. Despite d fact that David had more than one wife….he punishment came from the d simple fact that he committed ADULTERY not that he married more than one wife…and i will like to think that the punishment was cos he alredi had women in the house, y covert some1’s wife n commit murder to crown it all… Let’s not think for God or change rules to fit into our personal perspective of things, rather we should pray for the spirit of discernment in order to understand and interpret God’s word as He originally gave it… Dats my own 2 pence…

    Make una no vex, I no sabi quote bible…lol
