Attention men! Science says you should be looking out for your health and that includes masturbating at least 21 times a month.
No really, we're serious, according to scientific research published by European Urology (who knew such a publication existed?) if you want to cut down on the risk of prostate cancer then you need to be choking the chicken on a pretty regular basis.
While most people with prostate cancer survive it, you'd be much better off avoiding the danger altogether, and if the science says that jerking it regularly helps with that then who are we to say no?
There have been other studies which have suggested that a healthy sex life where you're climaxing often results in a noticeable drop in cancer rates, but science seems to have zeroed in on the magic number.
Apparently men should be aiming to have an orgasm, whether that's through masturbation or other means, at least 21 times a month and if you want to nobody's saying you shouldn't have more.
Scientists don't know exactly why making the one-eyed snake cry helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer but according to IFLScience some believe having an orgasm regularly flushes out toxins which could increase the risk of cancer.
The researchers surveyed 31,925 men over an 18 year period and kept tabs on how often they were w**king throughout their lives, which led them to make the scientific discovery which will surely be welcomed by men around the world.
However, just because it's a health activity now it doesn't mean you shouldn't confine it to the appropriate time and place as 14 percent of Brits admitted to w**king at work.
Then again, it apparently improves focus and productivity, and some workplaces have even offered their staff the chance to relieve a bit of tension with VR pods in which to do the deed.
Not everyone is sold on the idea that you can w**k your way to a lower chance of prostate cancer, as some people who have abstained from it have said it's been really beneficial to their health.
One guy who said he'd decided not to masturbate for three months said he had much more energy physically and was far more switched on in social situations.
He even decided to give up on masturbation altogether, claiming that it had helped him live a better life and 'enjoy it past the short pleasures of masturbating'.
There are also health risks from cracking one out, but usually that's because you're doing it wrong like the 20-year-old man from Switzerland who jacked off so hard that he landed himself in hospital with breathing difficulties.
