Dangers of Excessive Ejaculation

This tip is for for male readers, and female readers with male partners.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) excessive ejaculation weakens you and if you make it a habit it ultimately shortens your life span.

It's common knowledge if you lose blood (e.g. through injury or donation) you need to rest and give your body time to replenish itself. Same for loss of semen. And, just like blood, the older you get the harder it is for your body to replace lost stores.

If a male is ejaculating too often and not giving his body time to replenish lost semen he may start to experience certain ill effects. Common ones are post-ejaculation fatigue, lack of strength and lethargy. Other signs include sore, weak lower back and knees and poor concentration.

Ejaculation should make you feel great, not wiped out!

Healthy males in their teens and 20s may not notice any ill effects of excessive ejaculation but as they reach their 30s and above they may start to...if they continue to ejaculate too frequently.

I've read many TCM books covering this topic and the advice varies according to such things as age, lifestyle and general state of health. One book suggests if you multiply your age by .2 (that's point two) this gives you your frequency rate.

So, a male of 30 should ejaculate no more than once every 6 days, a male of 40 no more than once every 8 days and a male of 50 no more than once every 10 days, and so on.

You need to judge for yourself here. If you usually feel wiped out after ejaculation you may be ejaculating too frequently. Reduce your frequency rate, plus make sure you eat and sleep well, and see if it makes any difference.

Let me know if you have questions - it's a vast topic that cannot be covered in a few paragraphs.
