    Question Does sex lower your testosterone?

    I wasn’t sure where to post this. Sorry if this was the wrong place. I have heard that sex lowers your testosterone. Is this true or is it just a myth? Any studies done on it? Let me know. I worry because I do all theses thing to raise my levels and then wonder if I am defeating the purpose by having sex.

    Yep, no more sex for you, or masturbation, or thinking about women =/
    Time + Commitment = Success
    If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you
    truly want, and all that is left is a compromise. - Robert Fritz

    if it lowered test no healthy adult would have thier optimal amount of test. Honestly dude... who cares... are you going to stop having sex? if bbing is THAT important you need to start listing prioreties.

    Is it just a myth that boxers avoid sex when preparing for a fight? If it's true, why do they avoid it then?

    it doesn't lower testosterone. but, i don't have sex with my g/f the night after a hard workout. i'd rather just rest and recover instead of burning calories just for a nut

    Ok, You are right, I am not going to stop having sex, but does any one know about any scientific evidence that sex lowers testosterone levels? A link to a good web site maybe?

    If you're in doubt, consume more zinc. Each time you ejaculate (i.e. "nut"), you lose roughly 8mg zinc

Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said: "By the power of Greyskull, I have the power!" Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat, and I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.

    Sex or masterbation reduces your free test by around 1-2%

    If you are like me and cant keep it in your pants for longer than a few hour periods.. there is hope

    You can buy one of those steel chastitity belts, it will add approx 35lb to your torso and facilitate lean muscle gain and plenty of chaffing around your pubic region.

    2. You are so full of s***, maintenance is still unclogging the toilet.

    also, your sig says that youre 26, which means that your body is still producing PLENTY of test. usually the only people who worry about their test levels dropping are older.
