This subject may be taboo to some, but the question is intended to be serious and not evoke sexual answers nor to imply homosexuality in anyway..
How many men out there, straight or gay feel that semen is highly potent and possibly very valuable for ingestion and may have definate health or other benefits if ingested regularly? I've never really thought too much about it until recently, but do wonder if a man's sperm could be the answer to some health problems and beneficail to his vigor and/or vitality if it were ingested.
Any thoughts from any other men? I know many men and women ingest and swallow semen, but what do you think of the theraputic value of semen for men? Yes, straight men. This question is serious..
Sometimes I wonder if we men might be surprised if we regarded our most vital fluid as sacred and ingested it whenever it would be wasted.
Serious comments please.

Seriously, I don't think that this would benifit your health what soever. I suppose you could use yourself as a test subject. You could start by getting a full exam, blood work. Have your testosterone levels checks, so on an so forth. After this is done, then ingest your semen for a few weeks/months. Return to the doctor and have the same test done to see if there is any change in your health. This is the only way you would know. [deleted]

Once again, the only way to know this is to apply it and see for yourself.
I guess we will always be looking for answers to improve, and to prolong our life/youth, and that's a good thing. That's how great descoveries are often made, thru trial and erra. I wish you well with the semen/sperm testing.
Thanks AZMan, your answer was awesome and I appreciate you sharing your knowledge.
The main thing I wondered about was the benefit for a man to take his natural testosterone back into his body for his vigor and virility. I admit I wanted to believe some of the cultural things you said about it making men more virile. That part seemed like it was believable and of course, what man wouldn't want to be younger or more virile if possible, especially by such a natural means.
I tasted my semen once years ago when I asked my ex-wife to ingest it, and have come close to trying semen therapy but just can't get the nerve to swallow it. I would though if I knew it would do some good..
Like I said I've tried several times lately to get the nerve to ingest my own semen but can't. I'm not talking about self-suck or anything sexual. I tried to do it the way I did years ago. I ejaculate into a large spoon which I usually come close to filling up, then place the spoon as far to the back of my throat as possible, turn it up and let it slide down. It may sound gross, actually it kind of is, but for some reason I keep getting a feeling I need to try it.
I've made a decision to give semen therapy a try. If there are any other men who would comment or share your interest or experience with semen ingestion, please do. Serious responses please. This isn't intended to incline anything sexual, heterosexual or homosexual.
There is no testosterone in semen. If there was, it would probably cause women to get hairier, and grow muscles, if they were getting inseminated regularly.
There is no harm in ingesting your own semen, for any reason. It's got some small amounts of sugar and protein.
Thanks Tommy for your response, I appreciate your input. I have wondered about the testosterone content of semen. Someone on here (I think) said semen contained testosterone but it wasn't enough to do anything to a man's body if ingested regularly. I'm not sure what is correct about the presence of testosterone in semen. I did read an article on the internet about the total contents of a man's semen and it was as follows:
"Semen is a natural source of proteins, vitamins, minerals and human specific components like selenium, glycoproteins, testosterone, blood group antigens, spermidine, (a catalytic enzyme) fructose (sugar), zinc and vitamins B12 and C."
That's just a quote from a website. I've heard several different opinions on semen therapy and it's contents..
I took my own semen this morning. It was far less of an ordeal than I thought, as far as it being gross and tasting awful. It might not do a thing theraputically but I guess I'll see.
Thanks all for your input.

Have you considered taking up some new hobby? Semen is mostly DNA and mitochondria. When in the stomach, the HCl breaks it down like most organic stuff you ingest. Careful with that semen-swallowing; you may have opened up a can of worms. What happens if you can't meet your daily quota, sperm bank?
Semen is over 90% water with some sugar (fructose), a tiny bit of proteins and uric acid along with TRACE amounts of minerals, vitamins, and hormones. Trace meaning almost not of measurable significance.
Given that the average ejaculate is 3-5 ml of mainly water, you don't have enough of anything to make a difference compared to just eating a healthy diet. A single egg alone would have 1000x more high quality protein than 3ml of ejaculate.
I wouldn't count on it to deliver your daily bread, that's for sure.
