Does Holding Back from Ejaculating Increase Testosterone Levels?

holding back ejaculationThe idea that testosterone levels are reduced during ejaculation is an idea that has it’s basis in ancient China.

The Taoists have long held beliefs that if you ejaculate, you “spill your life essence”.

Boxing trainers and football coaches generally tell their athletes to hold off on ejaculation before a big event, due to the weakness that is felt after an ejaculation.

And studies have actually shown that holding back from ejaculating for a week or so produces a sharp spike in testosterone.

However, in my opinion, everything should be done in moderation.

An ejaculation after a week (or more) of abstinence will be overwhelmingly powerful, and will take a large toll on your energy levels and drive, however, this has nothing to do with testosterone levels.

Holding back from ejaculating for too long will increase stress levels, and make sleep harder to come by, and a lack of sleep is very bad for testosterone production. Sleep is when your testosterone levels recharge… and length and quality of sleep play a role.

Also, studies have shown that middle-aged men who ejaculate 4 to 5 times a week look up to 10 years younger (on average) than men who only ejaculate once or twice a week.  Scientists attribute these men’s improved appearance (including healthier skin, hair and muscle mass) to the chemicals released during ejaculation.

With regular ejaculation (like every other day), your body becomes accustomed to ejaculating and instead of one “BIG BANG” every week wiping you out, you have a few spread out “bangs”; this will keep up a healthy testosterone production and sex drive, without the weak feelings you experience after a large, saved up erection.
