Sex and Testosterone: Likely the Most Enjoyable Way to Boost Male Testosterone Levels Naturally

Share this information with a friend in need:

There has been lots of discussion about porn and excessive masturbation possibly lowering testosterone and disturbing the activity of androgen receptors and brain dopamine receptors. This has naturally led to the fact that many men are now scared of having too much sex as they think this would “drain” them from testosterone and be associated with similar negative effects as masturbation and excessive porn viewing.

Fret not, the good news are, that sex with a real person, does not decrease testosterone levels. In fact, research has shown that sex is one of the best – and arguably most enjoyable – ways to increase natural testosterone levels for free.

But how can that be? Sex and masturbation are basically the same thing?

Answer: Sex and masturbation are not the same thing at all. In real sex, you get the effects that woman’s pheromones have on the male body, you get the effects that come from the feelings of power and domination, you get a steady flow of dopamine instead of a quick rush, etc.

Basically what I’m trying to say here is this: Your brain is an extremely complex organ, and it’s damn sure that it knows the difference between a hand and a real woman.

Here’s some research about how sex affects the production of testosterone:

 

Sex and Testosterone Levels

sexual activity and testosterone levelsLuckily, there’s plenty of research about sex and how the act of lovemaking affects testosterone levels…

…And why wouldn’t there be? Testosterone is the principal male sex-hormone.

Researchers are not exactly sure why sex boosts the big T production, but they suspect that it has to do with dopamine, pheromones, feelings of domination and power, and even winning.

Here’s some studies that I managed to find:

a) In this study the researchers took saliva samples of testosterone from their 44 subject males before they entered a sex club, and then waited outside for them to return to take another sample. They found out that the men who had sex inside with a woman, experienced 72% increase in testosterone, whereas the men who only watched the act, noticed a 11% increase in the hormone.

b) In this 1992 study, the researchers examined four couples and their sexual activity. They found out that on the nights when the couples had sex, both the male the female subjects had significantly higher testosterone levels than on the nights when there was no sexual activity.

c) The scientists in this study, found out that older men who have more sex, also have more testosterone in their serum.

d) In this animal study, researchers found out that even the anticipation of sex increases testosterone levels quite significantly, most likely due to the elevations in the motivation/pleasure hormone, dopamine.

e) This study found out that the lack of sexual activity (caused by erectile dysfunction in most subjects), lowered testosterone levels a lot. The researchers conclude that this happens through a central effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary axis.

f) Not only does sex increase testosterone, but higher testosterone levels will also make you want to have more sex (study, study). So this clearly creates a positive feedback loop where the sex stimulates testosterone production and that testosterone then makes you want to have more sex.

So clearly, testosterone and sex are deeply tied together. More sex = more testosterone, whereas more testosterone = more sex.

 

Conclusion

If you want a free and extremely enjoyable way to increase your testosterone levels. Then just have some good ol’ sex. Not with a hand, but with a person.

Now, I know that few guys will come here and tell me how they found out in some bro-science bodybuilding site that ejaculations would lower testosterone, and thus, sex would be a no-go. But that’s bullshit…

…Just read this quick FAQ from examine.com to understand why. I will also write a post about ejaculation control and testosterone later on for more detailed answers (edit: it’s here).

Thanks for reading!

    Last question of my comment is my most important concern/query. You realize like 99% of guys don’t have girlfriends and getting sex is like impossible from personal experience. How the heck do you get sex in Finland with a stay-at-home job. Who do you have sex with up there? I live in SoCal. I usually just ask random girls everywhere I go everyday if they want to be friends or hang out or something and Iv’e blown 15,000 dollars or so at strip clubs this year cuz the thirst is real and trynna to expland female connections. No luck. I’m a teenager so unfortunately, I got braces for 13 more months and acne. Not permanent, but torture in that none of my pussy outages are working.

    When I’m older, I want to have high T levels, be fertile, young, strong and alpha forever. If I get rich enough, I can enjoy pussy 4 decades from now just as much as I would now. Plus testosterone keeps skin from aging. And growth hormone helps with thinking. So I do everything u recommend on this site. But U make getting sex sound as easy as doing a 24 hour fast, I do the fasts, sleep naked, cold showers, herbs, all organic, postures, heavy weights. Iv’e literally read every article on this and bought TestShock. It’s a fun hobby and I enjoy the strength gains. No idea what my T levels are, I imagine they’re very high since all I think about is ass and I wake up with boners every morning When that Cue tracker thing comes out, I’m gonna check it everyday. I’m 19 and look 12 so please elaborate on how exactly I’m just supposed to “have sex” when I can’t even get a female acquaintance after trying every day. I’m trying nofap again, even though I masterbate in total darkness, using my imagination, gonna see what happens when keeping prolactin, cortisol low. But yeah, going out doesn’t work, craigslist doesn’t work, 19 so can’t go to bars. Guess sex will be the only t-boosting thing on this site I won’t be able to do. I promised myself for here on out, I’m not fapping again until I get to orgasm in a real woman. so doing no fap, does that mean that, even though I pretty much do every single thing on this site to boost T levels, that my T levels will drop significantly from no sexual activity? So not fair, because I have no control over that unlike how I can get herbs and all the other lifestyle changes. I mean I read those who abstain for masterbating for 3 weeks have skyrocket T levels?

      Great comment, and I am sure many men share your frustrations today, because the jews has castrated us, brainwashed us on how attraction works, and how to get sex It is actually something we should NEVER need to learn, for you to have sex with a woman, should be as natural as drinking water, the jews made even the otherwise most genetically strongest men FUCKED UP in the head on the image on sex and what a female is. Be VERY careful where you get ANY influences from, as long as jews are walking on the planet.

      You seems to do all other things great, the obstacle to have sex with girls is something that you will fix and it will come naturally, it is not something that you should focus on. A woman shall NEVER be the number one priority in your life. The world needs more great MEN! Hope Kuopalla gave you a great answer.

    Can condoms block any of these effects?
