The Importance of Orgasms for Men's Health

By Sunny Rodgers, ACS, Clinical Sexologist and Sexual Health & Wellness Educator

Medical research is finding more and more reasons why healthy sexual habits are beneficial for overall wellness.

According to Reuters Health and a 2016 U.S. study, men who ejaculate often may have a lower risk of prostate cancer than their peers who don’t do it as frequently. This study and others have found that regular ejaculation lowers the risk of prostate cancer and protects the prostate gland. During ejaculation, the prostate gland flushes out any toxins or carcinogenic cells, thereby helping to protect you from cancer.

The great thing here is that ejaculation can be solo or partner play! And JimmyJane happens to have a wide array of sex toys and intimate products to enhance both options.

While using your hand has been a lifelong favorite for many men, the Long Silicone Erection Enhancer can help take your hand to the next level.

The Long Silicone Erection Enhancer fits in the palm of your hand and wraps its flexible silicone wings around your shaft. It features enhancement ribs that offer more pleasurable stimulation than just your fingers, and its’ pleasure node is specifically placed to arouse your frenulum.

(What’s a Frenulum? The frenulum is the sensitive erogenous zone located along the underside of the head of the penis and is the male equivalent of a woman’s clitoris.)

Here are 4 solid reasons why ejaculation is good for your overall health:

#1. Enjoy a Better Night’s Sleep

During an ejaculatory orgasm, your body releases a hormone called dopamine, which can cause a person to feel happy. After you climax oxytocin, also called the love hormone, is released. Oxytocin has been known to induce sleep in men. Which might be one reason your partner doesn’t want to cuddle after sex play… But is also why ejaculation will allow you to have a great night’s sleep!

#2. Last Longer and Experience Stronger Orgasms

Have you heard of Edging? Edging is a control method to make your orgasms more powerful and help increase your stamina.

How to Edge: Stimulate yourself to the edge of ejaculation… and then stop or reduce stimulation before you ejaculate. By practicing this technique and not allowing yourself to climax you multiply the orgasmic sensation when you do have your next orgasm and you also train yourself to prolong your sex play sessions.

One product that may help you learn to edge is a c-ring. Also known as a cock ring, erection ring and love ring, a c-ring such as the Fortitude 1 can help extend your erection and delay ejaculation when worn at the base of your shaft.

#3. Reduce Stress

Stress seems to be one constant in modern everyday life. But, frequent ejaculation can relieve some of that stress, can help you relax and reduce your pent-up tension. Here’s where the ICONIC RING Vibrating Cock Ring can really come in handy – turn on the battery powered motor and both partners can enjoy powerful stimulating vibration that provides a stress-busting sensory experience for you and your lover.

#4. Cultivate Healthy Sperm

According to an Australian study cited by, frequent ejaculation improved the quality of sperm because sperm had a shorter exposure to potentially damaging molecules located in testicular ducts. This makes regular ejaculation particularly important if you’re trying to have a baby. 

Just like brushing your teeth, add regular ejaculation to your list of healthy habits!
