    I firmly believe that habitual PMO lowers testosterone overall but what concrete science and/or ideas backs this up? Please share whatever you know because there is a strong contingent of medical masturbationists out there who are willing to die a martyrs death fighting over this "low energy" topic.

    I could be very wrong, but I don't think it does reduce serum testosterone. Visceral fat will convert free T into estrogen. Hypogonadism and certain other disease processes can affect serum and stored T.

    It's a very complicated system. There's not only testosterone but also T receptors and feedback systems and all that jazz. It's better to just be an example to deniers. But you're not gonna "win" some argument where now people are like, OK, we won't jerk off or will jerk off. People are gonna do what they wanna do. Just be an example to your family and friends and if your son asks you how to be a man, then tell him the truth. It's sad, but it's true. Hopefully they realize one day that jerking off is bad for you. Three days of not doing it can demonstrate that...

    I don't really have any strong science to back this up. But I do know that this fluid unlike other human fluids, can be used to form babies. Urine can't do that, sweat can't do that, blood can't do that,,,,,so it must be precious and required cautiously use. I think to form this fluid, needs more energy/nutrients. So if testosterone = energy, then frequently PMO will release that energy, which lower testo.

    It's like when 5 people hot showering in 5 min period, the 6 person would be cold shower, because no hot water anymore from the tank?

    What's the one thing that can disrupt male hormones and reproduction?

    Stress.

    Name one neurochemical that adrenalin (epinephrine) is made out of, causes a high in the case of pmo addiction and can therefore be considered a stressor?

    Dopamine.

    Logic dictates habitual masturbation decreases serum testosterone while downregulating receptors at the same time.

    Mind you normal levels of dopamine aren't going to cause such a thing, daily compulsive masturbation however will lead to high production of stress hormones and therefore lower levels of testosterone.

    Quote: "In adult male intact and adrenalectomized rats a significant decrease of plasma testosterone was found following five days of subcutaneous treatment with adrenaline. LH was significantly decreased in adrenalectomized, adrenaline treated males. Plasma testosterone was also found to be diminished in the male offspring of females treated with adrenaline during pregnancy. In view of these findings catecholamines may also play a role in the stress-induced drop of plasma testosterone in adult animals as well as in the production of androgen deficiency in male fetuses and newborns of stress-exposed pregnant females." - Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6684059
