    Apparently, being master of your domain isn't all that it's hyped up to be.

    Researchers say that for sufferers of the neurological disorder restless legs syndrome, a little self-pleasure could be just what the doctor ordered.

    In a recent letter published by the medical journal Sleep Medicine, Luis Marin and colleagues at the Federal University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, report the case of a patient who, with masturbation and sexual intercourse, eased the symptoms of his RLS.

    "The patient reported that he would get complete relief from RLS symptoms, granting him normal sleep following sexual intercourse or masturbation," the letter read.

    Masturbation is the safest sex act there is, it should be encouraged and now frowned up on.

    There's a perfectly simple answer to this theory and it wouldn't involve spending tons of money to research. Most men think with the wrong head ... which is generally attached to the leg most affected by Restless Leg Syndrome.

    While I realize the study tries to link dopamine to the result, the act of masturbation in this case is probably just a simple mind-over-matter thing.

    About 5 years ago, I started having RLS and my doctor suggested if I didn't have any other problems with insomnia (I didn't), to take a B-12 just before turning out the light. Vitamin B-12 plays a roll in the circulatory system, so his theory was if the nervous system is operating properly, RLS won't happen. I've been taking it ever since and have had absolutely no problems ever again.

    I guess it would depend on how you touch it.
