What are the health benefits of regularly ejaculating semen from the testes?
Does it really reduce one's prostate cancer risk later in life?
Are there any known scientifically proven health benefits of semen retention?

As a Christian, I am finding it difficult to grasp how the Bible can forbid such an activity which reduces the chances of getting a disease. Incidentally, I also find it hard to believe that it would allow its followers to consume alcohol in moderation (I.e. not in excess) when it is now clear from recent scientific studies that there is no safe level of alcohol that should be consumed for optimum health.

Anyway, I digress, what does everyone here think?
Are the studies legit? And what about the scientific studies which contradict the other studies then?

It keeps the semen fresh and releases tension, plus gives endorphin and hormone release.

I would never advocate using a religious text as a base for medical guidelines, especially given that they vilify anything out of the very narrow cis-gender p.o.v. they have, even though LGBT+ humans are natural and normal parts of the human species spectrum.

the problem with the bible is that it just tells you to do or not do something, no questions asked
you never hear why you should follow its commands

So where in the bible does it forbid masturbation?

Other than that, I suspect that life expectancy at the time of the bible was so short that health issue of this nature were unknown.

And in addition, I think that taking the word written in an ancient manuscript as instructions on how to behave is just plain stupid. I prefer to exercise my ability to think for myself and make my own decisions.

The name Onan comes to mind (hence onanism) I think that's in the bible somewhere (there's a lot of mad shit ;))

At college one my friends acquired the nickname Onan the Barbarian:lol:

Yes, I thought his name might come up, but what he was doing comes under the heading of coitus interruptus. No wanking in the bible, which is odd considering the number of wankers.

The bible was once a great device for spreading the faith. Like, it helped produce more Christian babies. It doesn't apply so perfectly to our times. How could any set of directives apply perfectly to all times?
