Established couples and prostate cancer

The average amount of sex reported in established relationships is approximately once a week (Blanchflower & Oswald, 2004Call et al., 1995Laumann et al., 1994), so perhaps this tends to be the average because engaging in sex more frequently is no longer associated with well-being. (MuiseSchimmackImpett)

This rate is below that judged adequate for optimal avoidance of prostate cancer in men. "Men who ejaculated 21 or more times a month enjoyed a 33% lower risk of prostate cancer compared with men who reported four to seven ejaculations a month throughout their lifetimes."
