A Demand for the Truth about the Health Effects
We, as a community of peace activists, recognize the
importance of personal health and well-being. Care of the self goes hand-in-hand
with our hopes for a non-violent future. We also believe, however, that any
attempt to discourage or limit masturbation could have disastrous consequences
for the cause of peace.
A small study (Masturbation
and Prostate Cancer Risk) has recently made headlines suggesting that
masturbation somehow increases the risk of prostate cancer. Many other studies
have shown the opposite effect. It is imperative that more research be done to
settle this question.
We call on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to immediately
initiate comprehensive studies to determine the effect, if any, of masturbation
on prostate cancer risk.
As peace activists who use masturbation as a form of non-violent protest, we are
well aware that there are those who would like to put a stop to our efforts. We
question any report of masturbation's adverse effects as a potential attempt to
both limit human sexual freedom and undermine the cause of peace. The
military-industrial complex, as well as anti-sex zealots, have an obvious
interest in curtailing masturbation as an expression of self-love.
We confirm our commitment to men's health as part of our ongoing mission to
masturbate for peace. However, we urge men to weigh all the evidence before
modifying their masturbation habits. We also assert our right as citizens to
masturbate as a political statement. We will not let this right be infringed
upon with scare tactics. We demand further study on the link between
masturbation and prostate cancer, along with the assurance that the results are
objective and unbiased, and not an attempt to crush the Masturbate for Peace
