June is Celibacy Awareness Month. Yes, celibacy can be a good thing, but there are also a lot of bad that came come from being celibate. Here are five things, four bad and one good, that happen to your body when you don't have sex.

  1. You feel more anxious - Something that's pretty obvious is that sex helps you blow off steam. Researchers have found that people who don't have sex regularly have a difficult time dealing with stressful situations, like public speaking.
  2. Prostate cancer is more likely - There was a study that was presented to the American Urological Association that found that men who had frequent sex had a 20% drop in their risk of prostate cancer.
  3. You have a higher likelihood of erectile dysfunction - This might seem a little backwards. Like if you don't have sex regularly, you'd almost being a walking hard on. But apparently not. Men who have sex infrequently are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction.
  4. You're more likely to get sick - This one also seems a little backwards because if you're bumping uglies with someone, you'd be more likely to catch something from them. But having sex also gives you a boost in immunoglobulin A, which is one of the bodies first defenses against viruses.
  5. And now the good one. Your risk of a UTI drops - This one is for females, but nearly 80% of urinary tract infections occur 24 hours after intercourse.
