(Times of Israel)   Turns out that abstinence makes men's sperm stronger. Subby's sperm could chew through six feet of Kevlar   (timesofisrael.com ) divider line

Abstinance makes the heart grow fonder, that's what I've always heard.

depending on what you're abstaining from, it can also make the fart grow stronger

Yeah, and "if you don't use it, you lose it."  Not getting off often enough increases your risk of prostatitis and prostate cancer.

But the question is...did they fap during that time?
 
2013-07-13 11:52:04 PM  
As opposed to women's sperm?

I make my sperm lift tiny weights.

No, as opposed to whale sperm.

Hrm, a nozzle for use in material deposition... sounds like a 3D printer to me.  Congrats, QA!  You are a product of the product you despise!

So, a man's hormone levels rise on a day that he knows he's going to get laid?

Color me shocked!

Eventually the sperm get bored and engage in some gladiatorial Thunderdom action.

I hate the delusions people have about 3D printing. I will keep repeating that until it sinks into your neutronium-plated quark-sized skulls.

What delusions?  That some day soon, rather than going to a big box retailer to buy cheap plastic garbage molded somewhere overseas, we'll go to a somewhat smaller building to buy cheap plastic garbage 3d printed domestically?

Uh huh.  I have no delusions about 3D printing.  It is a fantastic prototyping tool right now.  As material sciences advance, it may be able to do more.  There are already 'worries' among some people about safety (the 'gun') and IP rights, but that will work itself sooner or later.  For now, it is a useful tool, not a toy.  Not everyone who is excited about 3D printers is planning on printing out their flying cars.  You, on the other hand, sure get excited about it, to an extreme I've not seen since Bevets threadshat every thread he was in.

Thing is, I can't figure out why you such a hair across your ass about people being interested in the possibilities new technology offers.  Plenty of technological advancements must take place in material sciences before complex printing becomes reality, we all know this.  It'll probably be 50 years before we can actually 3D print a consumer product like electronics.  So what?  Desire & demand usually drives technological development forward.  We can dream.

This feels like one of those studies made for the explicit purpose of affirming religious customs, like the catholic church studies that say birth control usually fails and leads to permanent sterility.

That actually works out really well.  Because if you aren't using it any longer, the will to live went with it.  Er, so I hear.  A buddy told me that, a very depressed celibate buddy.

Rhino_man: Kinda cool... but I'm going to have to second crypticsatellite's question. Did they fap?


Nope. Despite the headline, the study didn't analyze anything about sperm quality itself. The article just jumps to the conclusion about halfway through. It also doesn't say that the men had gone the whole time period without ejaculation from masturbating - but given the culture, they probably assumed it. To me it looks like this whole thing was designed more to placate men sexually frustrated by these weeks of abstinence, as a means of justifying cultural tradition rather than for actual scientific gain.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that going a few days without ejaculating can make a difference in sperm and semen production during that time, or to figure out that sex with a woman during certain times of the month are less productive than others toward fertility. It might be interesting to see what the exact differences are, but it's not as if the human race in general is having fertility problems that will be solved by this study.

It's nice to see that farkers haven't read the Terms of Service and are such dicks.

Bravo.

Back on topic.

I read the headline as 'asbestos makes men's sperm stronger'.

That didn't sound right.

/I get the waiting for sex in a relationship isn't a horrible thing and may have some good effects, even if it is linked to sexist traditions in the Jewish religion.
