Sexpert Q&A: Self-Pleasuring & Sperm Count

Dear Yvonne, I masturbate daily. Will this affect my sperm count in any way? -Anonymous

Dear Anonymous, Self-pleasuring to the point of emission on a daily basis does not reduce your sperm count. Research actually indicates that it may, in fact, increase a man's virility. In producing ejaculation, a male's testes produce and store sperm continuously from the time he hits puberty.
