Is it true that frequent sex or masturbation can reduce levels of energy and testosterone? Because if it is, that really sucks. And I was wondering what you guys knew about it.

it doesnt decrease it, but more of your testosterone will be geared towards semen production.

i think. im not too sure. all i know is that even if it decreases testosterone levels, it increases awesomeness and happiness levels.

ejaculation does decrease testosterone levels but only temporarily and minimally. Testosterone will then peak and trough- staying at a consistent level.

In a sense yes
Sexual Activity uses testorone to produce semen, and when ejaculation occurs you do in fact (to the best of my knowledge) lose testorone. Ever wonder why you should never have Sexual intercouse or Masturbate before a fight or lifting weights? Its not good for you because the testorone which helps you do these activties isn't there. It also makes you sleep lol.

at the same time before a fight a women boxer should have as much sex as possible because this helps raise testorone levels. Always women with all the luck :D

Who cares? Heart isn't measured in terms of testosterone. Otherwise, the bodybuilders would be the world's greatest fighters. "Balls" refers to "guts", not male hormones....

u should not have any kind of sexual activity near a fight because it will make your testorone drop and mess with your performance

that poster 'j' will know.. the one with the orange avitar.. he knows everything. a really good cricket player once told me to have a toss before you go out to bat because it relaxes u and gives ya better concentration

my advice would be to abstain from sex for at least a few days before a fight. furthermore, never train immediately after having sex.

sex does indeed sap your energy reserves. the more you do it, the less immediate energy you will have available. i'm sure that everyone here has heard about ali abstaining for 2 full months, the "it weakens your legs" quote from rocky, etc. so, one would probably think, if ali found that it was usefull, it probably is.

muhammad ali was not the first boxer, nor the last boxer that trained in this way. hell, boxing isn't even the only sport where athletes do something similar. now, this supposed "myth" was started long ago. one thing i will mention - martial artists have known about this for centuries, well before boxing became the prizefighting sport that it now is.

i have read a few articles that have stated that sex the night before a big game or a big fight will not affect you're performance much, but may affect you're ability to concentrate. actually, it stated the exact opposite of what mgkirkpatrick had just posted. i, however, will trust my own experience over observational studies.

simply put, there's a reason why this topic has become somewhat a tradition among many boxers. there's also a reason why it has been common knowledge in traditional martial arts circles for over a thousand years. so, obviously, if it was bull****, it would have been discarded with hundreds of years ago.

Man sex kills me. It makes the legs weak haha. Seriously though i've felt tired as hell later on, after I get it on. lol Talking about LADIES, sex with a dude probably makes you're white blood cell count decrease dramatically. LOL

I heard that it is bad (not really bad, but it weakens your legs) if you have any kind of sexual activity, inculding masterbation, any time during the week that you are going to fight.

i just want to add one last thing and end this on a positive note. the younger you are, the quicker you recover energetically. as you age, depending on how you age as well as how you have lived(which usually correlate with eachother), the longer it takes to recover that youthfullness that you need to box.


so if you're, say 20 - 30 years old, you may not need to abstain from sex for a whole 2 months. just never practice immediately afterwards, especially running.

I am wondering, what if you have sex but always stop before ejaculating?

do you get more aggressive?

should fighters turn to tantric sex?

well, i can only comment on what i have heard and read about in regards to the question. supposedly, doing this in the proper trained manner, will make you many times stronger than if you had ejaculated. the tantric route specifically though, wouldn't be my cup of tea. there are other eastern practices which are far more detailed from what i've read and heard than tantric sex.

as far as the aggression tip, you would need to learn to balance yourself before taking up some of these practises. i would have to recommned talking to and learning from somebody experienced in this before trying it.
