Short term or longer term?

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Just got a sec here.  Let's talk short term first:

This small study shows no increase in testosterone from masturbation but the opposite from sexual intercourse:

This found the opposite:

Now look here at study 1:

You'll see that intercourse actually increases testosterone levels in the above as well.  I do not know of any study that shows that masturbation increase long term T levels.  Furthermore, if you look on that link, you'll find that in some cases masturbation does not confer the same benefits as intercourse.  It just doesn't seem to "pack the same punch" so to speak...
