Regular sex can be good for your health, research reveals.

A recent review showed that bonking two to four times a week cuts the risk of prostate cancer.

While this might be the encouragement you need to get down and dirty, blokes are advised to put a limit on the number of partners they romp with.

The study showed that those with a high number of sexual partners were at greater risk of contracting the disease.

Researchers at Sichuan University, China, looked into the correlation between sex and prostate cancer.

After analysing data from 55,490 men and 22 different studies, they found that tumour risk tended to fall as sexual frequency increased.

Apparently, romping two to four times a week is deemed to be best for your health.

Participants who did this were 10% less likely to fall victim to prostate cancer than the average person.

If you don’t have a partner to get jiggy with, there’s no need to panic.

Engaging in a bit of self love is said to have similar benefits.

While regular romps are seen as beneficial, promiscuity is not recommended.

The study showed that prostate cancer risk increased by 10% for every ten female partners a man has.

Leader of research, Dr Jian Zhongyu, said: “Men with fewer sexual partners, older age at first intercourse and moderate frequent ejaculation were associated with a significantly decreased risk of prostate cancer.

“Modification of sexual activity factors would appear to be a useful low-risk approach to decreasing the risk of prostate cancer.”

Men are advised to learn the warning signs of prostate cancer.
