Should I Be Ejaculating?

this may sound like an odd question. i haven't ejaculated in over a week
and have noticed that my testicles are slightly larger than normal and a bit
more 'mushy'. it's also kind of sore for no reason except for the fact that
i haven't masturbated or had sex in the past week. is it unhealthy for me
not to ejaculate more often?

Well, generally speaking, there's certainly nothing unhealthy about not ejaculating for a week or more. If you need to, you'll want to, & that takes care of itself. If you don't have a desire to, you don't need to. I can't offer any opinion on what you say about your testicles, and I'm not sure whether you mean the soreness is in the testicles or in your penis. Lack of masturbating or ejaculating doesn't cause soreness in either.

Re: Should I Be Ejaculating?

Sometimes when you dont ejaculate for a prolonged period you can feel somewhat achy and a sense of fullness in your testicles. Usually ejaculating will quickly cure that discomfort.

Not ejaculating will not physically harm you. If your body needs to get rid of semen it will whether you help it along by masturbating or having sex or have a nocturnal emission (wet dream) doesn't matter.

Re: Should I Be Ejaculating?

I can't imagine your testicles getting larger from lack of ejaculation, the sperm that they produce is a relatively small amount of the total ejaculate. And as said before, if it has to come out it will, either voluntarily sex or masturbation or involuntarily wet dream or nocturnal emission.
