Who knew that giving up mastery of your domain could provide significant release — uh, relief — of restless leg syndrome (RLS). This wankingly good news was recently discovered by Luis Marin and colleagues at the Federal University of São Paulo, Brazil.
RLS is no joke. It’s a disturbing need to move your legs, caused by — as yet — unidentified neurological problems. A dopamine imbalance is one of the features of this syndrome, and drugs that increase dopamine levels can help. But the researchers in Brazil have found that sufferers get complete release — sorry, relief — after masturbating.
Unfortunately, it might not be the kind of relief you can get on your morning commute.
The extra good news? Sex has the same effect!
