Does masturbation cause testicles to shrink?

I'm just wondering.

No proof or source whatsoever? We always hear sayings like 'bust a nut' so I really want to know. I heard that the liquid we ejaculate is stored in the testicle but I'm not sure.

Tobi,
Your sperm comes from your testicles and makes up an extremely small amount of your semen, maybe only 1-2% (I know that is hard to believe seeing as how there are 200-500 million sperm in each ejaculation!). Your sperm "mature" in your epididymis and are stored in your vas deferens. There is 1 for each testicle. The majority of your semen comes from your 2 seminal vesicles and your prostate.

The "bust a nut" is just an expression. As our testicles become engorged with blood during arousal and if you don't ejaculate they feel heavy and even somewhat painful. That is called "Blue Balls." So, some dudes may call ejaculating to relieve the pressure "busting a nut." On the other hand, a lot of men have no idea about what is really involved when they have an orgasm and an ejaculation.

If masturbation caused testicles to shrink then an awful lot of guys would have very small ones! So the answer is a definite NO
