    Semen Retention vs. Active Sex/Chronic Masterbation

    There's been some studys that show an athlete may have higher testosterone peaks if they don't masterbate. On the same note, there has also been scientific studies that prove an athlete who has sex right before they compete can deliver better results and have higher testosterone levels .

    I'm asking everyone's opinion whether they think that someone with semen retention or someone who is sexually active almost every day/masterbates everyday would have higher natural testosterone levels.

    If I have sex before a workout I feel sluggish and quite the opposite in reverse, I will never blow my load before a workout, it makes for a shit workout, could be in my head...

    lol, same here! Although I've gotten road head on the way to a soccer game before and played lights out (scored 2 goals)! Soccer and lifting weights are two different things though.

    This topic comes up a lot.. personally I think any testosterone changes from jacking or not would be minimal. I will say this. If you are pursuing a hot girl, not jacking is beneficial. You will pursue much harder.

    I find sex hinders my max strength if I work out shortly after however taking a big crap seems to help for some reason.

    No sexual activity gives me better performance at the gym. I just think of the female trainers.

    Having sex with my significant other has little / no effect on the actual workout.

    Jacking makes me weak everywhere (at work, gym), gets me tired, etc.

    I just have to laugh at the phrase "semen retention." An interesting way to put it.

    Your body releases various chemicals and hormones following an orgasm. The reason for being tired or sleepy after ejaculation is due to a release of a bunch of brain chemicals, including serotonin, oxytocin, vasopressin, nitric oxide, and prolactin. The release of prolactin is linked to the feeling of sexual satisfaction, and it also controls the “recovery time”...the time you must wait before being ready for another round. Studies have also shown that men that are deficient in prolactin have faster recovery times. Prolactin levels are naturally higher during sleep. There's a strong link between prolactin and sleep, so it’s likely that the release of prolactin during orgasm causes you to feel sleepy. Two other chemicals oxytocin and vasopressin, are released during orgasm, and are also associated with sleep. Their release usually accompanies the release of melatonin, the main hormone that regulates your body clock. Oxytocin can also reduce stress levels, which again could lead to relaxation and sleepiness. So that's why it isn't good to go to the gym right after a roll in the hay.

    From my person experience I had sex before a basketball game, I played lights out. played from start to end. When I have had sex before working out I can't lift a damn thing.

    I've been playing around with semen retention recently, I read a study done recentlyby the Chinese. Using 26 men, they was no noticeable change in testosterone levels for the first 6 days, however on the 7th day test levels spiked to as high as 150 above base. Levels remained high until the 10th day, then they dropped back to where they started. The experiment was 20 + days long, they has never been long term semen retention studies, so the effects long term are pretty unknown.
    What I've decided to do with what I have learned from this study is to do a ten day cycle. So I start, then on the 7th day testosterone spikes for 3 days til the 10th day (allegedly). So I beat my meat on the night of the 10th day. Then the next day the 10 day cycle starts over again. Im on my 2nd cycle and let me tell you im as horny as a mofo, like a dog on heat. You notice women alot more when you ain't busted one out for ten days. You become, the word pervert comes to mind.lol

    Google for the Chinese study if interested, lots of data out there about it.
