Semen, as we all know it, is released by our penises during ejaculation. The normal volume of semen is between 2 and 5ml per ejaculate. This volume, however, changes as a man ages. The peak volume of semen is produced between the ages of 30 to 35, while the lowest happens when men reaches the age of 55 and older.
- Drink Plenty of Fluids
The volume of semen released upon climax is also related to the volume of water or other fluids that are taken in by the body. The reason behind this is that semen is actually water-based, and it is the fluid which acts as lubrication for the sperm. According to studies, our body needs about two or three liters of fluid every day in order to function properly.
- Avoid too much exposure to heat “down there”
Your penis is very delicate. It should never be exposed to too much heat, otherwise, it may wilt. Therefore, if you love long car rides, sitting on heated seats, or staying too long in sauna or steam rooms, think again.
- Do not wear too tight underwear
This has something to do with temperature once again. For your semen and sperm to work normally, then need to be exposed in a temperature that is relatively lower compared to the body’s normal temperature. By wearing tight underwear, scrotal temperature increases, thus decreasing semen and sperm level.
- Avoid sitting down with legs crossed
This philosophical posture can also greatly affect the volume of your semen. When you sit down with legs crossed, you are squashing your scrotum against your warm body, then again, increasing temperature above normal range.
- Decrease soda intake
Aside from the fact that soda contains high fructose which is bad for organs, such as the liver, it can also affect your semen volume. Studies show that men who drink more soda had 30% lower semen count compared to men who do not, or drink soda in a minimal level.
