If precum is made in the cowper's gland and sperm in the testis? How can precum have sperm in it if it's made in two different places?

Good question: Sperm originates in testis, travels to ejaculatory ducts via epididymis & vas deferens. Sperm can escape from ejaculatory ducts & travel down urethra during sex or masturbation. Thus sperm can be washed out of penile urethra by escape of pre-cum from Cowper's gland duct. This has been cause of many unwanted pregnancies & is danger of so called "withdrawal" method of contraception. ...Read more

Does a reduced blood flow to the testis reduce the cells ability to repair DNA damage of sperm cells? Hence sperm will have higher mutation rate?
No: I believe the cell would not compromise it's ability to replicate with fidelity for the sake of replication in it of itself at the cost of errors. So, if the cell were starved of oxygen, I think it would simply cease from replicating or die. So, in short, the answer to your question, I think, is no. However, I have not read or seen specific literature on your question and don't know if it exists. ...Read more

As with everything in nature there are outliers that don't get affected or are severely effected by any given event. ...Read more
