    Just wondering if anyone that jacks off a lot, like 2-3 times or more a day, if you get sick a lot or it makes it harder for your immune system to fend off stuff.

    I've never seen any connection between j/o a lot and getting/not getting sick. In my younger days I would j/o probably 10-12 times a week and would always get sick with a bad cold, almost like bronchitis, every winter regardless. I stopped getting sick every winter, however, when I started working out regularly.

    So, I study human health and sexuality and am in a MA program studying these kinds of things....

    Your body has a limited amount of energy that it takes in and also has across its lifespan and it can choose to invest in either:

    Maintenance: Staying healthy, living long, investing in immune system, etc.

    or

    Reproduction: Creating gametes (sperm) and seminal fluid and investing in looking sexy and attracting partners

    This is from an evolutionary approach, of course (its called Life History Theory or sometimes Embodied Capital).

    Basically, across your lifespan, if you were really sick it might make a small difference but for an otherwise healthy, well-fed individual it shouldn't make much of a difference. In fact, orgasming, having regular sexual release, etc might be BETTER for you... (nothing in excess of course).

    HOWEVER...don't masturbate/fuck too much. You'll damage your arterial tissue and won't be able to hold an erection in old age.

    If anything I'd think that having a cum release would help the imune system.
    That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

    Probably one confusing thing to add to the mix is that if one is stressed more so than usual, one might jack off more often to deal with that stress. Since stress is associated with getting sick more often, I could see how jacking might be inaccurately connected to sickness. For what it's worth, my sinus troubles were much worse when I was living in a part of the country known for wicked allergy. Where I live now, the air is much less humid and there aren't as many allergens in the air, so I'm healthier now.
