sexual activity/inactivity verses testosterone production
We all are aware that testosterone makes us who we are and keeps us as we like - masculine and energetic. However, we also know it feeds cancer. We have also heard the saying, "Use it or lose it!" as applied to being sexually active. I am wondering how sexual activity - or sexual inactivity - effects testosterone production. Does one or the other have an effect on the production of this good/bad chemical and in what direction? It's a thin line we all walk but already having one foot in the door toward being neutered from cancer treatment, it is always nice to be able to keep what little we have left. Jon. R.
