I have personally found, through years of trial and error, that if i abstain from any ejaculation whatsoever (even wet dreams) then i feel i have much more energy, i become more focused, socially better and generally an all round better person. in my history i've been through many 'periods' of of abstinence lasting 2-3 weeks each. i have lost lots of fat through each period that i do that, as i end up burning off that extra 'energy'. i have generally felt more 'happy' as a result of being more sociable and productive. after i start having sexual activity again i become lazy and lethargic and gain weight again. i also feel a lot of strain from stress. any body else find a similar effect? are some people's energy just more 'dependent' on testosterone (or whatever the chemicals that are retained)?
