no the semen isn't dead. no it isn't concentrated. no ejaculation over a couple of days will mean you have a higher sperm count in the ejaculate but only in the first one. the male body gets rid of it for us if we dont use it.

Re: if you do not ejaculate is your semen dead

No, semen (or sperm rather) doesn't die if not ejaculated. I'm not sure how long sperm lives, but I know even after it is ejaculated and desposited in a vagina it lives for quite a while in the warmth of the woman's body. As stated, sperm is alive and active in a man's body until it is released. If not released over a long period of time it is absorbed into the body and new sperm is manufactured.

One thing I've noticed over the years concerning sperm quality (so to speak) is that if a man allows his sperm reservoirs to fill completely and "mature" as I call it, his ejacualate is much thicker, whiter and of course more concentrated with actual sperm. When a man ejaculates once a day or more per day his semen or sperm will be much thinner and clear due to a lack of thick, white mature sperm cells. If frequent ejaculation is acheived, of course the ejaculate will contain mostly clear semen, which is the clear, slick fluid that lubricates the urethra and transports the thick sperm out of the penis.

So the answer is no, sperm doesn't die, it's just reabsorbed into the body.


Sorry for the long answer. Hope it helped a little.

Re: if you do not ejaculate is your semen dead

I don't believe I am answering this.
Semen is a combination of several different fluids from the Seminal Vesicles, Prostate, Cowper's glands, along with sperm that really isn't semen *until* it all combines in the ejaculatory ducts during a man's orgasm.

Technically, semen can't "die" if it is not ejaculated because it really doesn't exist until then.

I am not sure but I think you are asking about delayed ejaculation. So, if what you are asking is that if a man has an orgasm (the pleasant contractions that begin just prior to ejaculation), or hopefully several orgasms but he relaxes and does not ejaculate, then, when he finally does ejaculate, there will typically be more semen (concentrated?) and the force of his ejaculation will be stronger because there is more of it.

If he does not ejaculate at all the semen is absorbed back into his own body.

Is that what you are asking?

If you are asking about the sperm itself, if re-absorbed it is at that point that the sperm will die but men manufacture millions of sperm each day and many don't mature and die anyway, either in the testicles or in the Vas Deferens where they are stored until ejaculated. That is why we make so much. And in the 200 -500 million sperm in each ejaculation, only 1 of those little dudes will survive the total trip to that lucky little egg!
