Myth: There are many myths around masturbation developed and perpetuated by those who frown on the practice.Your testosterone level is driven to be a rather constant and varies more with age than sexual activity/self sex.Sperm are automatically regenerated by existing testosterone levels and muscles repair and build at the same time.There is no "draining "effect.
