Prostate, immunity, and mood are all improved with ejaculation:

This article is talking about masturbation specifically, but the same applies. I feel like there's a balance, because those who do it too often feel groggy all the time, and those who aren't ejaculating enough are missing out on the benefits. This is another one of those "do what feels best for your body" scenarios.
Great many thanks! I remember an interview with Miles Davis in which he mentioned that an orgasm before playing 'killed all the energy'. Orgasming before bedtime feels more natural, indeed. I'm glad there are studies backing up the benefits of masturbation!

I'm not of the opinion that sex and masturbation is a vulgar or low. This post wasn't intented as such.
My n=2 experiment with this resulted in:
1) significantly better sleep induction for my husband (who often has serious problems with entering this phase of sleep)
2) no difference for me
Go figure it works well for the dude and not the lady!
“A man’s body chemistry changes after orgasm. The biochemical prolactin is released, physically altering his body and making him very tired,” says Dr. David McKenzie, a sex therapist in Vancouver, Canada.

Guthrie describes quite a bit of Paleolithic cave 'scribbles' as erotic art done by young men. Not sure if that equates to any ejaculation rates but it may give some insight to what was on their minds. :-)

Then my apologies if my post was harsh. I don't think so either. It was just the whole grok thing. Considering that most baby boys find their penises before they can walk, and then pretty much are obsessed with them until they're about 100 years old, I thought the question was sarcastic and vulgar.
Again, my apology for misinterpreting your intention.
Personally, I think an orgasm a day is probably better for you than an apple.

It's stuff like this that makes me want to bang my head on the keyboard. Eat like our ancestors? Great..but jack off, shower, get hairy/grow a beard, walk around in public barefoot as much as possible? Just do what feels right and don't tell us about it
Masturbation is overrated.
