It makes you go blind…

But seriously - any effect on your hormones will be so slight and transient that it’ll not make any difference whatsoever, so wank away, young man. Wank away.


#3

I would even say that regular ejaculation even reduces the stress/relaxes you, which hinders the slight hormone effects completely.


#4

unless you’re like me and you do it in public

wow. solid interpretation of how testosterone works. You’ve really done your research. What, exactly, do you think happens when you masturbate? Do you think that white stuff shooting out is a big wad of testosterone?

Also, the question could be rephrased as such: ‘hey guys, I’m masturbating wwaaaaaaay too much. Am I dying?’

Whats the difference (on health and bodybuilding) between masturbating frequently and having sex frequently?


#8

I’m just curious what happened to your keyboard. The shift key and spacebar don’t seem to work after you use a period. You should look into that before worrying about your testosterone.

Wait, it is supposed to be white?

Cardio; well, I suppose this depends on your level of activity while masturbating.


#9

I think it helps with recovery


#10

Actually, I masturbate while doing cardio :smiley:


#11

On the contrary, temporary depletion of testosterone prior to the workout will lead to a substantial spike in said levels above the norm during the workout due to the body’s attempt to normalize hormonal levels. Do it on squat day and the research shows levels comparable to low doses of steroids, albeit for a short amount of time. However, as a natty, one would certainly want to utilize every tool at his disposal.

Good luck!

I’m guessing it’s a phone thing.

BTW, OP frequent masturbation to porn (movie form) is a good way to lose interest in sex if you are of a particular personality type.


#13

I’m getting a real sense of deja vu from this…


#14

No. There is a critical 30 min. window that occurs 15 min. post work out wherein it is not only beneficial, but has been proven to increase protein synthesis by 47% for 48 hours.

This was all proven in the renowned study conducted by Daumen, Scheisse & Arschloch at the Das Faust Uni. in 1998.


#15

I don’t know if this is real or not but seriously right after intense workout rub one out and coristol lowers right away and recovery is rapid speed.
!!!


#16

I also used that one on a girlfriend once. Only works the first time.


#17

I would disagree since Stock, Atiken, Waterman et al (2001) artificially induced the refractory period post workout through the rickroll process and found the results with regards to protein synthesis to be insignificant.


#18

It happens to be a good source of protein
Very useful when you run out of protein powder…


#19

If you drink it afterwards, you can replenish gains lost if you’re worried.

Whenever I eat soy protein products I rub one out immediately to get the bad testosterone out before it converts to estrogen.
