This may seem like a strange and hopefully not too provocative question, but many people who have gone paleo report having better libidos. Obviously one's libido is effected in part by one's hormone balance which we know is effected by food/sleep/exercise/etc. My question is, does the frequency of orgasm also effect one's hormone balance and is there an optimal frequency for maintaining a "youthful" hormonal profile? The answer may not be the same for men and women. For example, I know in Traditional Chinese Medicine, frequent ejaculation is considered bad for men because it weakens their kidney chi. Some men are able to separate orgasm from ejaculation in order to get the obvious benefit without the negative. I think this isn't considered a problem for women in that system.
By the way, I am not trying to be pointlessly provocative. This whole move to Primal/Paleo has me thinking about everything in life in a fresh way. I have always enjoyed myself frequently and have also always been mistaken for someone much younger than I actually am. This is also true for the handful of other people,men and women, I know who have shared this personal information with me. Is there any cause and effect? Maybe it's just the stress relief? Does cortisol lower immediately with release? I am curious what you think.
