Protein and sex

I want to build more muscle in my body by working out and lifting weights. I know that there is protein in sperm, so if I don't have sex as much, will that help to keep protein in my body, and help me to build muscle?

Re: Protein and sex

Nope Sperm only contains miniscule amounts of protein. The body continuously makes sperm, and if you don't release it, it gets broken down and reabsorbed. In other words, your body is going to divert a tiny amount of protein to sperm making whether you have sex or not. So forget any notion that sperm production is taking protein away from your muscles and concentrate on your weight training and proper diet and you'll do fine.
