When it comes to how often a man should ejaculate, there is no perfect number. Lowering blood pressure and reducing stress are just a couple of a whole range of health benefits you can experience from frequent ejaculation. Although, what is important to note here is that it all comes down to your choice and doing it as little or as much as you like.
The ‘normal’ number is likely to differ in comparison to others over the course of a day, week or month. How often you ejaculate is also dependent on other factors like:
- Relationship status
- Physical health
- Mental health
You could be sitting there thinking that about 21 times is the right number for you. Although it may not be correct, you are probably wondering where we’ve got this number from.
While there are some researchers who believe ejaculating frequently may help reduce the inflammation-causing toxins from the prostate, others are not convinced. Research done back in 2004 was unable to find a link between frequent ejaculation and a lower prostate cancer risk.
However, this idea of 21 first surfaced from a study by Harvard Medical School. Their research uncovered that men who ejaculated 21 times in a monthly period had a 31% lower risk of developing prostate cancer; in comparison to those who only ejaculated between four and seven times.

A study from 2008 discovered that young men who had more sexual activity, whether with a partner or alone, were actually at a higher risk of prostate cancer in their 20s and 30s. Although, as we get older, there is the potential for sexual activity to protect against prostate cancer.
Take these results with a pinch of salt though, they have all relied on self-reported data so it is uncertain how trustworthy they can be.
What happens if you ejaculate daily?
There are no physical side effects to frequent ejaculation. So, if you want to ejaculate daily, then go for it; it can actually be beneficial to your well-being, particularly emotionally. As long as this isn’t associated with chronic masturbation or porn addiction, you’re all good.
When we become aroused, our levels of oxytocin and dopamine increase, so ejaculation is good for you and your body.
- Oxytocin is associated with stress reduction, positive emotions and bonding
- Dopamine is the hormone that promotes feelings of satisfaction and pleasure. This helps to boost motivation, productivity and mood, while also reducing depression and stress
However, if you ejaculate on a daily basis, you’ll likely encounter something called a refractory period. This is a length of time after you orgasm before you are ready to be sexually aroused again.
In younger men, this can be anything from a few minutes to a few hours. Unfortunately, as we age this period increases and it may be up to 24 hours or maybe even longer before you are ready to go again. So, even if you do want to ejaculate daily, you may not always feel like it.
Abstaining: is it good for you?
There are actually men out there (I don’t know, you could be one of them) that like to go a period of time without ejaculating as a way to reboot; this is referred to as abstaining. Some will do it to show that they can, perhaps if they’re dealing with addiction or another problem.

It may sound a little crazy, but there are even online communities dedicated to it. There is also no evidence to suggest that abstaining has any harmful side effects, so if you are comfortable doing it and you want to, then go for it.
What other health benefits are there?
Not only do we feel a little lighter after an orgasm, there are also several health benefits to frequent ejaculation, such as:
- Reduce the risk of heart disease
- Better quality sleep
- Improve sperm quality
- Lower blood pressure
- Boost your immune system
- Reduce migraine symptoms
Can we run out of sperm?
Men produce roughly 1500 sperm cells a second, that’s around one hundred million sperm cells every single day. This means that in an average lifetime, a man will produce approximately 525 billion sperm cells. That’s just crazy, isn’t it?
So, the answer is, no, we don’t run out of sperm.
What happens to sperm cells we don’t use?
Sperm cells that go ‘unused’ will simply be absorbed back into your body or released whilst you sleep. Therefore, if you go through a period of abstaining, you may notice the infamous ‘wet dreams’ make a reappearance.
Ejaculating 21 times in a month may be just the right amount for you, but 50 or six times could be too. It really doesn’t even matter if it is zero. Every person is different! There is no need to keep score or feel the need to do it more because you find out your friends are, just listen to your body and do what is right for you.
