Meet your orgasm quota, gentlemen — for your health!

There are a plethora of things you can do to help your man out and keep him healthy — preparing more healthy foods at home or getting him to work out with you. None of those are quite as fun as what researchers claim reduces his risk of prostate cancer.

A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that getting your man to orgasm often can help reduce his risk of prostate cancer. But what exactly is considered "often"?

Recent research took data from 32,000 men over 18 years. During that time, 3,839 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, and 384 of those cases were fatal. All men reported the average amount of times they ejaculated monthly.

The results showed that men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month reduced their risk of this type of cancer by 20 percent, compared to men who only got their rocks off four to seven times a month.

Who the heck can fit in 21 orgasms each month? Well, if you can't meet that quota, don't stress out too much. You're only human. According to researchers, that isn't really the point anyway.

"We shouldn't dwell on the exact numbers of ejaculation, but instead should focus on the dose–response relation," says Jennifer Rider, ScD, MPH tells Medscape. "Safe sexual activity could be good for prostate health."

Good to know men don't need to put in too much work to meet their monthly orgasm quota.
