Hormones = Awesome: Once you've passed through puberty, your genital tract is primed to be stimulated by testosterone, the male hormone. The seminal vesicles, once sensitized, continuously make semen 24/7. If you were to record your "output" over a day it would likely be close to 8-10 cc/day. Since an average ejaculate is about 3.5 cc, you would see reduction for any additional samples obtained in the same day. ...Read more

Hormones = Awesome: Only 50-70% of semen comes from the seminal vesicles (svs). The fluid contains fructose for sperm to use for energy among other supporting elements. The svs continuously make semen 24/7. If you were to record your "output" over a day it would likely be close to 8-10 cc/day. Since an average ejaculate is about 3.5 cc, you would see reduction for any additional samples obtained in the same day. ...Read more

Here are some...: Technically, it is possible, but, up to current literature, no such attempt has been tried & documented because no imaginable benefit from such procedure can be rationalized. In known urological practice, radical prostatectomy or cystoprostatectomy for prostate or bladder cancer will removed seminal vesicles & ejaculatory ducts leading to no ejaculation at orgasm if erectile ability still remains. ...Read more
