"Specifically, retrospective studies have shown that features of semen quality are reduced during long periods of sexual abstinence"

"In contrast, periods of abstinence between 12h and 10 days have generally revealed enhanced sperm quality parameters, although this is not consistent across all measures of sperm quality."

"These investigations demonstrated that *********ion-induced orgasm produced a pronounced increase in cardiovascular responses and plasma catecholamine concentrations. Furthermore, sexual arousal was characterized by a large, persistent increase in concentrations of plasma prolactin. Since hyperprolactinemia is known to inhibit sexual arousal and function, these data suggest that prolactin may act as a peripheral and/or central feedback signal in controlling sexual arousal following orgasm."

"On the other hand, the increased testosterone concentrations may have resulted from enhanced sensitivity to anticipatory cues, since testosterone secretion increases in anticipation of sexual interaction. Thus, the increase in testosterone following abstinence may have resulted from increased anticipation of the erotic film."

Holy sheeet.


Why didn't this thing resonate in my head prior?

This is the exact same concept of neurobiologicy of writers. All the great writers in history when creating metaphors or similies or descriptive language don't consciously plan everything they're about to write. it comes up to them. and it's said that the most IMPORTANT MOMENT is the ANTICIPATIOn before they look inwards into their head and try to produce an image. They are at the mercy of their mind's parallel processors. And that was Siddharthas gambling addiction. "He did not live for the rewards, he lived for the intense heartbeat of anxiety that happened prior to rolling the dice."

Hmmm major repercussions in regards to pavlovian conditioning has reared its head.

If a person knew for a fact they'd be getting the nookie after a set week.... how would it affect them behaviorally?

If a man set out to achieve his lifelong goal of becoming an NBA player.... what would be the optimal reward/punishment ratio to get him from point A to point B?

If a depressed mid20s having fellow had a dream, and desired life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; how would he carve his lfiestyle/agenda in regards to punishment/reward for maximum efficacy?

Hmmm... questions questions
