    Does masterbation effect muscle growth?

    ive always heard this rumor before that if you have too much sex or masterbathe alot that it effects your male hormones which makes you gain less muscle. is this true?

    Actually it is good for your body, your prostrate to be specific, it is a gland and muscle rolled into one nifty lil unit, there are even exercises for it, no joke there really is, and if you like to "shoot for distance" those exercises are for you!.. EVERY study done shows that the more exercise your prostrate gets the less chance a male has of getting prostrate cancer.. and as far as sex effecting your outward appearance, I guess if you masturbate a lot with just your right or left hand it could effect your symmetry lol..

    If I got to quit having sex to grow bigger, then growing bigger is out of the equation!

    This last 8 months ive had more sex than i knew what to do with, its also been the period of time ive made the most size and strength gains.

    Look at what you need to make gains on a basic level:

    A balanced training program.
    A caloric surplus.

    Does masturbation or sex interfere with either of these?

    No.

    So pork away.

    I think she means Palmela. Perhaps her nickname for her "working" hand?
