Frequently Asked Questions and Articles on Male

If you’re female, is sex healthy?
A wide range of psychological and physiological health factors benefit from penile-vaginal intercourse, but other sexual activities don’t seem to provide the same benefits, and masturbation and anal intercourse might even be detrimental to health. (Sorry.)
Does ejaculation affect testosterone levels?
Ejaculation results in changes in prolactin (increase) and dopamine (temporary decrease), but does not result in changes in testosterone. Although prolactin and dopamine are both involved with testosterone, they do not appear to influence testosterone levels acutely.
