MP1 Q: I'm 21 years old and in
the Marine Corps. Recently, I got back from a training deployment. I hadn't
had sex or masturbated in three weeks. When I finally had sex with my girlfriend,
I ejaculated loads of sperm, and my orgasm was very pleasurable! Is it common
to ejaculate a lot more sperm the longer you abstain from sex or
masturbation? A: Yes, but only up to a point. After a few days, the body has
natural ways of releasing the extra semen and sperm. See question below.
MP2 Q: I'm 28, and tomorrow my
wife and I will try for the first time to make a baby. I have not had sex
or masturbated for a couple of weeks, so I am getting pretty horny. I can
feel my testicles full of sperm. When we have sex tomorrow, will this increase
the chances of conception? Also, what is the best position for us to get
in to conceive? Do positions that allow me to penetrate deeply make conception
more likely? A: 24 to 72 hours will allow a man to reach full sperm/semen
capacity. Depending on the shapes and weights of your bodies, certain positions
may be more desirable for deeper penetration. However, it will not really
make much of a difference if this is your first attempt and conception. Unless
you are having problems conceiving a baby, just have sexual intercourse in
any comfortable position. If you do encounter problems with fertility, see
a specialist for advice on sexual positions, sperm count, ovulation calenders,
and how to decide the best time to have sex. Otherwise, just have fun while
you work on making the baby.
MP3 Q: I am 21 and masturbate
once a week. I abstain as long as possible to increase my ejaculation and
pleasure. My right testicle hangs lower and is slightly than my left one.
Is this common? When I am highly aroused, and my testicles are swollen, my
right testicle feels a lot more pleasurable when I massage it. Is it because
it has more of my sperm in it than the other one? A: Sperm are microscopic. The mechanisms that produce the sperm
are what you feel inside the testicle. There are many tiny tubes where sperm
are born and where they mature. Sperm can be temporarily stored behind the
prostate in the seminal vesicles.
It is normal for one testicle to be slightly larger than the other or to
hang lower than the other. Rarely are they exactly symmetrical.
MP4-5 Q: I am 23, and I'm REALLY
hairy. I have hair all over my chest and back, and my legs are covered in
it. Is it normal for a guy my age to be this hairy? Last week, I had sex
with a girl who seemed really turned on by my body hair, and her enthusiasm
over it made my orgasm better. But not many guys on my soccer team have body
hair like me. A: I know a guy who has somewhat of similar problem. They use
cream bleach to lighten the excess hairs because shaving the hair can make
it itch. However, you would have to have a light complexion for this to work.
I'm not sure what your skin tone is. Cream bleach can be purchased at CVS
drug stores. Follow Up Q: I wrote to you asking
if it's common to have LOTS of body hair for a guy at my age (23). I don't
think cream bleach will work for me since I have a dark complexion. I have
to shave at least twice a day to keep my beard from growing out, and it gets
really annoying. Since I recently had wonderful sex with a girl who liked
all my body hair, I'm starting to think I should just enjoy it. Do you think
I should stop shaving and grow my beard out? Does all my body hair mean I
produce more testosterone? Do girls like having sex with hairy guys more?
If so, I'll never shave anymore. A: Hair growth is more of an inherited factor, which can come
from parents, grandparents, or ancestors. Testosterone plays a role in hair
growth but it affects more of when rather than how much or how thick hair
will be. I think you should just enjoy your hair since especially since your
girlfriend does. If you are dark complected, it probably does not look bad
on you at all. You'll have experiment with your beard before you find something
you feel comfortable with. You may want to grow a partial or full beard if
shaving continues to be bothersome.
MP6 Q: I know someone who has
been diagnosed as missing his vas deferens. Apparently he was born without
it. Is this rare and can you tell me anymore about it? A: It is rare, but it is possible. There's not much more to say
about it. People are also born without arms and legs or kidneys, etc. everyday.
MP7 Q: What happens to a males
penis in cold water? I thought it was supposed to shrink, but my boyfriends
seems to get an erection. I have noticed this on other people as well. Is
this normal? A: In cold or luke-warm water (under 98º F), the penis and
scrotum do shrink in the absence of sexual arousal. However, if the person
is sexually aroused and an erection occurs, that would be an exception to
the water-penis shrinkage rule. Depending on the person, any number of things
can cause sexual arousal, including non-sexual things such as the feeling
of water on the body.
MP8 Q: I am 32, and I've never
had a wet dream. I want to have one to see what it would be like. How many
days do I have to go before I'll have one? It's been about a week since I
last ejaculated. When I have one, will I wake up in time to enjoy it, or
will I just wake up to semen stained sheets? Are they fun? A: You have probably had them but they dried up before you woke
up. The semen may or may not stain.
MP9-10 Q: I'm 19. When I was born,
one of my testicles was still in my body. I had an operation when I was first
born. Now I have one testicle that has dropped and the other hasn't. I masturbate
once or twice a day, I have an orgasm alright and I can cum. I'm just wondering
wether this is going to affect the testicle what hasn't dropped? A: The undecended testicle is a question for a medical doctor
to answer. It is something you will need to ask about since you had previous
surgery. In my opinion, if you are age 19 and sexually mature enough to
masturbate and ejaculate, you really should have seen both testicles descend
by now. However, this is something that has to be examined by a professional
in person. You do not have to mention your masturbation when you ask about
this. Masturbation isn't going to affect the situation. However, a testicle
that remains in the abdominal cavity is not something that should be
ignored. Follow Up Q: You replied to a
previous message saying that a testicle that remains in the abdominal cavity
is not something that should be ignored, before I consult a doctor could
you tell me why it could be a problem? The scar I have is actually on the
side where the testicle is attached. A: You need to see your doctor for these questions. I don't know
your medical history. I have no idea about the scar either. I am an expert
only in the psychological aspects of sexuality not medicine. This is not
a medical website. Sorry I cannot help more.
