Now that society knows the most optimal time of day for whichever method of boning one prefers, another question has loudly emerged: Does an orgasm a day keep the doctor away? Well, the answer to that existential concern depends on whether or not one of your sexual partners happens to be a doctor. It also depends on a bit of science, which has now more or less answered "Yeah, maybe. Worth a shot?"

A recent study by Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital revealed that men who let the proverbial dogs out "more than 21 times a month" experienced a 22 percent lower risk of developing prostate cancer, Cosmopolitan somehow reported without drowning in ejaculation puns. For what it's worth, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still rates prostate cancer as the second most common cancer among men.

Thankfully, researchers were also able to determine that this apparent lowered risk comes specifically from the process of ejaculation. This, of course, means that Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey) in American Beauty was really just putting good science to the test with his so-called "high point of the day." Legend.
