I don’t know who wrote the comment, but on Amazon.com, someone wrote in their review of A Keyholder’s Handbook that I am wrong about abstinence in men having no ill side effects. They quoted a study found in the American Medical Journal that says there is a direct link between abstinence and prostate cancer.
In fact, this person is correct about the article, but does not understand that the AMA (or AMJ) publishes studies and their results in order to entice other researchers to duplicate the study and the findings. The fact is, this was the only study that gave those results. Other studies have not been able to reproduce the same results. The fact is, the AMA knows more about what does NOT cause prostate cancer than they do about what does cause it.
I do my research. Yes, there was a study that may have indicated that abstinence is a factor in some men. However, there has been nothing conclusive either way. Other studies simply could not reproduce the same results. Therefore, the AMA does not stand behind any study that cannot be confirmed through reproduction.
The author of that particular comment, however, did recommend frequent prostate milking and numerous ruined orgasms might help alleviate the problem. Okay. I agree with giving your chaste male lots of prostate milking and ruined orgasms, just not as a cancer prevention.
Because there have been literally millions of men throughout history that have been abstinent for years and there has been no correlation made between abstinence and prostate cancer, I believe that male chastity is safe, as far as developing prostate cancer is concerned.
Sorry for wasting your time on my soap box, but I hate people who read one thing and take it as Gospel. Do your research! After all, it wasn’t that long ago that coffee was supposed to cause all kinds of maladies, and then it was decided that it was actually good for you. So go figure. It may turn out that chastity is the answer to many male health problems (especially sexually transmitted ones?), for all we know.
