Is going long periods of time without ejaculating unhealthy?


A friend had told me that it is medically harmful for a male

to go long periods of time without ejaculating. Is this true

or just a myth? I have searched the net myself and can't find

any answers. My question isn't about whether masturbation is

right or wrong, or if it is good or bad for your body.

Simply, is it unhealthy or is it ok to go long periods of time

without ejaculating? Can you help with an answer?

Great question! Unfortunately I don't believe there's a solid

medical answer. By that I mean, I don't believe there have

been any clinical trials to actually determine the answer.

That said, I personally have gone months without ejaculating

when I was much younger and it did not cause me any harm. I

did experience some nocturnal emissions but that is probably

to be expected.


There are really two schools of thought regarding this topic.

Some think it's harmful because you are not exercising your

internal organs. When the body is not used, it tends to

atrophy and weaken. The same might be said of the parts of

the body that are stimulated, or in this case, not

stimulated through the process of ejaculation.


Others feel that withholding ejaculation actually helps by

lowering your energy expenditure. This tends to be a more

Eastern philosophy (Chi, internal energy is believed by some

to be directly tied to semen production). To be clear

however, most practices such as Taoism aren't saying to just

stop ejaculating. They use specific exercises to stimulate

the genitals and a sort of meditation to circulate the store

of energy throughout the body. We have some articles on these

types of practices here:

I hope you find this information useful. Ultimately I feel

that abstaining from ejaculating is neither right nor wrong,

it's a completely personal decision.
