If you only need one reason to beat off instead of 21 then stop reading. If, however, like me, you appreciate all medical research to help rationalize the joy of release, keep reading.

Perhaps I am suffering a post-traumatic-Tommy-Lee-stress-disorder hangover from yesterday. In the April 7, 2004 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association a study of 30,000 men in middle-age was published and it was discovered those who ejaculated 21 times or more a month had a 33% lower risk of prostate cancer than those who only ejaculated four to seven times a month. If you are behind the ejaculation curve there is still hope for you. Men who increased ejaculations by three per week over a lifetime had a 15% reduction in the risk of getting prostate cancer.

Here is a link to a plain English WebMD article about the study.
