    what is the effect of too many erections on prostate at age of 60?
    Edward Edward
    October 05, 2008

    At the age of 60, I'm very active in sex with my partner and have at least twice erections per day with some sexual activities, but try not to have ejaculation more than once every 2-3 days. I wonder if too much of sexual activities have adverse effect on Prostate health?

     

    Thanks, Edward

    Edward - I am not a physician but from the cursory research I was able to do it does not appear that frequent ejaculation is a problem in an otherwise healthy man. In fact, there are some researchers/physicians who are suggesting that ejaculating is a way of flushing unwanted substances from the prostate. However, this finding is apparently not supported or espoused by all urologists or prostate experts.

     

    There is some thought that frequent, prolonged, rigid erections combined with rough sexual activity can have some damaging effects on the penis.

     

    Please talk to your urologist or primary physician to be sure that these questions are being answered by someone who knows your general health.

    There is no link between prostate health and the number of erections that one has

    There does not seem to be any reason to believe that the rate of ejaculation should correlate with any issues related to the prostate.  It’s wonderful that you are continuing to enjoy a very healthy and active sex life – congratulations.  You can keep your penis in even better health through the judicious use of a penis nutrient formula (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil).  A formula that includes L-arginine will give an extra boost to penile blood vessels, accommodating better blood flow.
