Good post, MXL :up:
Poking about in the restless jackoff debate… About T, I have nothing to back me up except personal experience which tells me MXL’s statement is true: “Jacking off decreases T for a short time after emission. However, the same research shows that in the hours that follow, it rises to a level higher than it was. Regular emissions keep the T level good and elevated.”
Whether or not T has anything to do with gainrates, I really don’t know. What I do believe - and I suspect this to be equal or more to the point in the jackoff debate than T - is that the ligs stiffen up after ejaculation. Taking only this condition into account, I can’t make a plausible assumption that it works for (length) gains through hanging or jelqing; stretching or tugging: Isn’t the consensus with most succesful hangers that of warming (the ligs; loosening them up) before and during hanging, or at least before and until halftime through a set?
