Dr Landa said: "Masturbation can produce the right kind of environment for a strengthened immune system to thrive."

A small study carried out by the Department of Medical Psychology at the University Clinic of Essen in Germany appears to support Dr Landa's findings.

Orgasming also causes the body to relax and can help people to sleep better, which also contributes to immunity.

He said: "With the coronavirus pandemic hitting Britain, one of the consequences has been many people having to isolate themselves and that could very well see a major upturn in birth rates.

"Many now believe that we will be seeing baby booms on both sides of the Atlantic. Bookmakers believe that 2020 will be the biggest we have seen in terms of births this century."
