No: That's baloney. The "pop" / "pious" claim is based on the observation that sperm counts are higher after abstinence. That's from absorbing fluid while the pressure is up. Don't let anyone deceive or mislead you. Get with a reliable source of information about sexuality. Enjoy your body sensibly; if you're obsessed with erotica ; missing the rest of life, get with your physician.

No: I'm sorry somebody tried to frighten you with this particular lie. Enjoying your body is excessive only if it's an obsession that interferes with the rest of your life -- friends, work, study. It won't make you short, bald, smooth, hairy, an unfit dad or partner, or unspiritual. Sperm counts are higher after abstinence only because fluid is reabsorbed.
