does masterbating use as much sperm as sex?

Varies: The length of time of genital stimulation determines the amount of sperm that is ejaculated. Usually masturbation nor intercourse change the amount of sperm that is produced, but the length of stimulation does.

Maybe yes/no: Retirement helps to reduce the stress of a job but in itself brings new forms of stress. If a pt has erectile dysfunction caused by a medical structural problem it won't get better? I guess you will have more time available for sexuality?

Why is sex addiction difficult to treat in younger people?

Dr. Peter Forster
Psychiatry 36 years experience
Focus of young: For a number of reasons sexual activity is much higher in young people anyway. For instance, hormone levels tend to stimulate interest. But also young people are surrounded by messages in the media and social media encouraging relationships and sexuality. All of this makes treatment harder, but certainly not possible.

Consult physician: Don't worry about the "quantity" of the sperm, unless there is none. A single drop is enough for conception purposes. You don't say if the penis gets flaccid before getting the orgasm or your total intercourse time is 5-10 minutes. You need to see a physician to evaluate this and other issues to find out the cause and prescribe a treatment if necessary.
A member asked:

Why does air come from my vagina during or after sex?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Michael Swor

Vaginal air bubbles: Sexual activity can sometimes cause air bubbles to collect in the vagina, which then are expelled during or after sex. It's not a problem and not unusual. Get your regular gyn checkup to be sure that is what it is.
