What determines the amount of your load?

Can I ask you a painful question? How long does your sex last?

It’s ok if you don’t want to answer.

But let me reassure you – half of the male population is in the same boat as you. The most popular response to a Reddit poll on “how long does your sex normally last” was 1-2 minutes.

Hi, I’m Mike. I’m an ex-pornstar. It was my job to have sex for 30, 40, or even 60 minutes straight. Nobody is born with such endurance. I share everything I know in this Secrets to Lasting Longer guide. 

When we (men) experience orgasm, we ejaculate a fluid known as semen. When we ejaculate, we expel 1.25 to 5.00 ml (1/4 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon) of semen on average. However, this amount varies from person to person.

When we are in our early thirties, we produce the most sperm. As we get older, the amount tends to decrease. Semen volume can also be affected by heredity, diet, smoking status, and overall health. If a man hasn’t had sex in a few days, he may ejaculate more.

Where do sperm and semen go if not ejaculated?

If sperm does not leave the body through ejaculation, the body breaks it down and absorbs it. It may also release sperm during nocturnal emission, also known as a wet dream.

If a person has had a vasectomy, their sperm remains inside the body and does not mix with the sperm. The testes continue to produce sperm, but the body absorbs it.

What foods increase seminal fluid?

There are foods that naturally increase seminal fluid and sperm count. Foods rich in Zinc mineral-like shellfish, fish, groundnuts and meat. In addition, foods rich in vitamin D are directly linked to seminal fluid production and motility.

Vitamin C and antioxidants like beta-carotene can help you increase the volume and quality of seminal fluid. These foods are carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots, winter squash and kales. Moreover, it goes without saying that seminal fluid is largely water, hence you should hydrate more.

What is the refractory period, and can you reduce it?

In human sexuality, the refractory period is typically the recovery phase following orgasm, during which a man is physiologically unable to have additional orgasms. This phase starts immediately after ejaculation and lasts until the excitement phase of the human sexual response cycle starts over with a low-level response.

The refractory period varies widely among individuals, from minutes to hours. During this time, most men are unable to achieve or maintain an erection, and many experience a psychological sense of satisfaction and are temporarily uninterested in further sexual activity; the penis may be hypersensitive, and further sexual stimulation may feel painful.

The refractory period directly correlates with our cardiovascular health. To shorten your refractory period you will have to:

  • do cardiovascular exercise, such as walking, running, or aerobics
  • maintaining a healthy body weight
  • eat nutrient-dense diet
  • treat or manage underlying health conditions, such as diabetes
  • do kegel exercises

Why does heat affect spermatogenesis?

Nature is smart, there is a reason why your balls hang lower from your body. News flash! This is so because spermatogenesis (manufacture of new sperm cells) occurs optimally at a lower temperature than the body.

Heat adversely affects spermatogenesis. Raised testicular temperature harms mammalian spermatogenesis and the resulting sperm cells. As a result, the thermoregulatory failure that results in heat stress can impair sperm quality and increase the risk of infertility.

How many times should a man release sperm in a week?

The truth is that there is no “normal” or “standard” number of times a man should ejaculate. Average ejaculation frequency varies according to many factors, including a man’s age, health status and relationship status.

According to a 2015 study, men who ejaculated daily for 14 days saw a slight decrease in the number of sperm in their ejaculate. However, the reduction did not result in sperm counts falling below normal levels. Furthermore, frequent ejaculation had no effect on other sperm health indicators such as motility and morphology.

How does smoking reduce the ability to produce more sperm?

Men who smoke have lower sperm concentration, lower motility (how sperm swim), fewer normally shaped sperm, and more DNA damage in their sperm.

Cigarette toxins are frequently blamed for negative health effects. Men who smoke are exposed to high levels of cadmium and lead, both of which have been linked to decreased sperm quality and quantity. Lead levels in infertile smokers were found to be significantly higher than in fertile and infertile nonsmokers.

Heavy smokers (those who smoke 20 cigarettes or more per day) had higher levels of cadmium in their sperm.

There is also evidence that the negative effects of smoking may not be solely due to the toxins found in cigarette smoke. Indeed, a study on the effects of oral nicotine on male rats discovered that rats exposed to oral nicotine had significantly lower sperm motility and count. Thus, nicotine, in addition to the toxins found in cigarette smoke, may play an important role in the negative effects of smoking on fertility. Interestingly, parameters affected by oral nicotine improved after 30 days of cessation, implying that these effects are reversible. Furthermore, a study of 210 men found that men with higher cotinine levels in their seminal plasma had a higher percentage of abnormal sperm morphology. Because cotinine is a nicotine metabolite, these findings support the theory that nicotine is a possible driver of the negative effects of smoking on fertility.

What happens if a man releases sperm daily?

If a man releases sperm on a daily basis, nothing bad happens. Ejaculating on a daily basis is more beneficial than harmful, unless it is associated with chronic masturbation.

So, here’s what happens if you release sperm daily:

  • It helps reduce stress and anxiety
  • Scientific studies found that releasing sperm daily reduces risks of prostate cancer
  • Daily ejaculation makes you happy by releasing dopamine into your body. Dopamine could give you the motivation to do things you otherwise would have procrastinated
  • Regular ejaculation improves sleep quality

How to shoot bigger loads every time?

To shoot bigger loads every time you need to cover the basics first. That is staying hydrated – drink more water. Consider this: sperm is a liquid that is mostly water; only 2-5 percent of your load is sperm. The more water you drink, the more your body has to increase the amount of urine you produce.

A quick online search will reveal a plethora of supplements that can help you maintain stronger erections, boost your libido, intensify your orgasms – and make you ejaculate much, much more.

In addition to water, your body requires certain nutrients, vitamins, and minerals in order to produce sperm. The more your body has to work with, the greater your load.

One of the best is zinc, which your body requires for a variety of functions, including the production of fluids. It also helps to balance your testosterone levels and sperm quality.

Regular exercise, no matter how strenuous, is not only beneficial to overall health but also helps to increase testosterone levels. Indeed, studies show that men who exercise on a regular basis have higher testosterone levels than men who do not, resulting in better sperm quality and volume.

The more frequently you ejaculate, the less load you will have. This is due to your body not having had enough time to replenish its supplies since the last time you ejaculated. Reduce the frequency with which you ejaculate to give your body more time to ‘stock up’ and provide you with larger loads. Ideally, three days should be enough time to allow your body to replenish itself.

A final tip, you can try edging. You simply build up to an orgasm and then stop, giving your body a few seconds or a minute to calm down before continuing thrusting.

By delaying your orgasm in this way, you not only extend your sexual encounters, but you can also have much more powerful orgasms that last longer and allow you to shoot a lot farther. Consider this: every time you come to the brink of an orgasm and stop, you’re accumulating more and more cum – so when you finally let it go, you shoot like a fire hydrant.
