To make it simple there are studies that show that if you withhold from ejaculation for 7 days your testosterone level will peak on the 7th day up to 145% (Study provided below).
Semen retention is nothing new, it has been commonly practiced by Taoist of sexology. Even though semen retention should not be taken to the extreme holding out for 7 days without ejaculation can be a beneficial way to increase your testosterone, energy, vitality and motivational levels.
If you have low libido this method is a must try.
I suggest that you plan ahead of when you choose to have sexual relations with your partner. Instead of trying to have sex multiple times a week and underperforming each time having mediocre sex, try having intercourse on the 7th day of no ejaculation when your test levels are at their highest.
Higher test levels equal higher sex drive, make the 7th night a routine where you prepare and make sure you sleep as much as possible the night before.
Openly discuss this with your partner, you can make it an enjoyable night that you both look forward to every week. Make it interesting and have a weeks’ worth of sex in one night, by withholding for a whole 7 days it should be easier to have sex multiple times in one night.
More about the study
The purpose of this study is to gain understanding of the relationship between ejaculation and serum testosterone level in men. The serum testosterone concentrations of 28 volunteers were investigated daily during abstinence periods after ejaculation for two phases. The authors found that the fluctuations of testosterone levels from the 2nd to 5th day of abstinence were minimal. On the 7th day of abstinence, however, a clear peak of serum testosterone appeared, reaching 145.7% of the baseline (P < 0.01). No regular fluctuation was observed following continuous abstinence after the peak. Ejaculation is the precondition and beginning of the special periodic serum testosterone level variations, which would not occur without ejaculation. The results showed that ejaculation-caused variations were characterized by a peak on the 7th day of abstinence; and that the effective time of an ejaculation is 7 days minimum. These data are the first to document the phenomenon of the periodic change in serum testosterone level; the correlation between ejaculation and periodic change in the serum testosterone level, and the pattern and characteristics of the periodic change.
Signs you are ejaculating too often
Every man after ejaculation feels severe fatigue and sleepiness. The higher the frequency the more we feel the symptoms and takes longer to recover. Whereas if you ejaculate once a week you most likely will not feel any of the fatigue symptoms. It is recommended we need 72 hours after ejaculation for our body to regenerate itself. To recover at a faster pace try some of our testosterone boosting recipes in our Ebook Libido Fuel.
Some symptoms of excess ejaculation:
- Back Pain or Discomfort
- Eye Floaters and Fuzzy Vision

Groin Discomfort or Testicular Pain
To experience optimal testosterone levels it is recommended to ejaculate once every 7 to 10 days. Use this 7th-day time frame to your advantage. Such as having sex on the 7th day or making the 7th day fall on a day you need the most energy and strength.
