Movember ~ Repost ;{

Ladies are you wondering why there is an overwhelming number of itchy faced 70’s porn-star moustache adorning men around lately? No there is not a 70’s porn feature film in town, and it’s not the play-offs, it’s much more exciting and important than that! *wink*

Movember is in full swing! Men all over the world are growing facial hair to help bring awareness for mens health! The prostate (from Greek prostrates, literally “one who stands before”, “protector”, “guardian”) is a gland of the male reproductive system. Its purpose or function is extremely important in helping prolong the lifespan of sperm and giving better protection to the genetic material DNA!

Did you know that prostate cancer is the number 1 male cancer? Did you know that a man is 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than a woman is to be diagnosed with breast cancer? The good news is prostate cancer is over 90% curable if detected and treated in the early stages.

Here is the link if you would like to find out more about Movember. A friend of mine Steve (pic to the left) has a Movember site you can visit to make a donation! It’s a no brainer to support those who are making a difference in other peoples lives!

I personally LOVE facial hair, any facial hair on a man is just plain sexy! Their moustache is their ribbon, and in just 30 days of wearing it they raise not only awareness through conversation, but in 2010 they raised $22 million dollars, an itch worth having!

Thanks to all my handsome male friends who allowed me to post their pics for a good cause! Now go and get your prostate checked boys, it could save your life!

Oh and just one more thing…prevention 😉 you didn’t really think I was finished. The BBC News website says masturbation (<—– go on click on the link…I know you want to, guaranteed a gut laugh out loud if you read the entire article) or more specifically ejaculation reduces the risk of prostate cancer. To quote BBC, ” Men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life.” There I said it…now go do the right thing!

MOVEMBER NEWS FACTS:

Movember began in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia. The guys behind it joked about 80s fashion and decided it was time to bring back the moustache.  In order to justify their “Mo” (Aussie slang for moustache), they used their new looks to raise some awareness and money for prostate cancer research… never dreaming their efforts would lead to a global movement for men’s health.To date, more than 1,000,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have joined together to raise over $175 million to change the face of men’s health.

FYI…if I use keywords such as porn, masturbate and ejaculate we usually get a few more hits than normal! Sorry if I offended anyone but it’s for a GREAT cause, our handsome male energies life expectancy! 

Thanks again guys for allowing me to post your pics, you are all making a difference!

Making progress…
