Daily Sex Best for Good, Healthier Sperm - new study

Having sex daily significantly improves the health and quality of sperm according to new research:

Dr David Greening explained that it was likely that frequent ejaculations improved the quality of sperm by reducing the length of time they were exposed to potentially damaging molecules called reactive oxygen species in the testicular ducts.

Frequent sex, however, does decrease semen volume but for most men this is not a problem according to the researchers.

The theory is the longer sperm hang around in the testes the more likely they are to accumulate DNA damage and the warm environment could also make them more sluggish after a while.

Sperm come under attack by free radicals - small reactive molecules which can damage DNA and cause cell death - in the tube that stores and carries sperm away from the testes.

Further work is needed to work out if daily sex for men without fertility problems has the same benefits but Dr Greening believes it is likely to be the case.

He warns that having daily sex for too long - say a fortnight - would probably cut sperm numbers too much. But recommended "lots of sex daily" around the time the woman is ovulating.

He said it was best to "keep the river flowing".

As men age they may not have as much sex as they did when they were younger, adding to the problem of infertility, Dr Greening told delegates.

"We are designed to breed in our youth.

"Perhaps we have been blaming the women as couples get older but perhaps there's a contribution from the male because we're not behaving as we should be."

Interesting! Rather the opposite of what Taoists say, I believe...

Of course, none of this is relevant to those of us who've had a vasectomy... But the thought is nice enough .

Any male practising frequent sex needs to have a good supply of zinc for making quality sperm. Apparently 3mg is lost each time, and it is a vital nutrient for over 200 enzyme actions in the body. Zinc is available most prolifically in oysters, but nuts, seeds, meat in other foods, but usually only supply barely enough to meet the recommended daily allowance, especially if eating processed foods.

Nah, I just stockpile my zinc... πŸ˜€

πŸ˜€ - it'll be working even better with your enzymes πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ but a stockpile could come in handy in due course

This is a very interesting article. And is new to me I must admit. However, I must agree with Caroline on her Zinc supply suggestion. I also would not suggest daily ejaculation despite what the article recommends. I try to take a balanced view on each subject. I never see extremes as a quality path. And yes, I think that loss of sperm everyday is definitely extreme. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't some of the constituents of sperm brain and spinal fluid? I don't think nature designed it for constant loss of those vital fluids of the body. I'm not even going to go into the vital nutrients that can be loss including zinc which is a give me.

You have to stand by your beliefs IMHO, and I'm an esotericist, at least in theory or as best I can be. As such, the preservation of the "sacred fire" is usually, in most esoteric schools, cited as a key to spiritual progress and especially the raising of kundalini, if 'only' a natural and unforced raising. The same viewpoint is already stated in this thread as:

And by gedgecomb as:

The taoist guidelines are flexible on this, depends on the individuals health, constitution and age. This was discussed in this thread:

The following quote posted there is from the instruction given to the Yellow Emperor by the "Plain Girl" (Su Nu Ching, Taoist Classic, dating around 4th century BC):

Some men are strong, some are weak, some men are old and others are in their prime. Each should live according to his own vitality and not try to force the joys of sex.

Forcing joy is harmful.

Thus a robust male of 20 may ejaculate twice daily, but an emaciated one should do so no more than once daily.

A 30-year-old male may ejaculate once a day, but only once every two days if he's an inferior specimen.

A flourishing man of 40 may emit semen once every three days, but if he's weak he may do so only once every four days.

A robust man of 50 may ejaculate once every five days, but only once every ten days if he is weak.

A 60-year-old man in good health may emit once every ten days, or once every 20 days if his health is poor.

At 70, a robust man emit once a month, but a weak one should no long emit semen at all.

Also, it should be noted that the research looked at the health of the sperm, which does not necessarily imply better health of the body - Dr Greening believes that "it is likely to be the case" but this was not the focus of the study.

Certainly, the loss of zinc and other minerals would need to be replaced by diet or supplements - a good zinc and selenium supplement should be taken daily with a min of 6mg of zinc if you are sexually active.

Surely your body tells you if ejaculation seems like a good idea?! And as for sperm, if it's fertility you're after, you only need A SINGLE healthy one (as long as it's a good swimmer) πŸ˜‰

LOL. You are taking the part of an American character called "Obvious Adams" who always confounded intellectuals by saying the blindingly obvious. :p Oriental literature can be taken with a pinch of salt. (Or half a pinch if over 40, and a quarter pinch if over 50? :)) It's all laid out far too mechanically IMHO. Each to their own.

...or not. Much depends on opportunity or lack thereof.

Right

Yes this is right that having sex is good for health. It's work as pain relief, remove stress, weight loss and many more , But having good sex needs perfection in man like penis size and man with small penis can not satisfy his partner so if anyone have such kind problem of small penis then he must think for PE. For PE there are many kind of product available in market like [url]steel libido[/url] and much more but before making any decision always get full detail of that product. πŸ™‚
