A man without testosterone is no man at all. For your information, testosterone is a hormone that makes a man manly. By this, I mean you cannot develop muscles or grow a beard when your testosterone levels are low.

Better, though, you experience low libido or suffer an impediment in protein synthesis when falling low on testosterone. In short, you get to store less fat in your body. According to research, testosterone levels decline at a rate of 1% annually once you hit the 30-year mark.

That is reason enough to worry for any man. It is with this in mind that many men watch porn, just to get their testosterone levels up. But does this technique really work? 

To be blunt; a lot of testosterone gets produced when you are watching your favorite pornographic scene, well according to a study conducted on 12 test subjects. But one question is likely to trouble your mind. 

For how long do the effects of increased testosterone production last and are they ever useful to physical fitness trainers?

Should you or should you not refrain from porn?

It is evidently clear that porn and increased testosterone production are correlated. However, one thing we are not sure about is whether the effects of such a spike are long lasting and if these effects can enhance athletic performance. 

To add to this confusion, are a thousand stories about professional athletes being made to abstain from porn and masturbation before a significant competition. These stories are embedded on the foundation that abstinence helps build testosterone levels in your boy thus making you ferocious.  

Spoiler alert; abstinence has no direct effect on testosterone production and performance. Therefore, Muhammad Ali, Fabio Capello, and Linford Christie went on a dry spell all for nothing.

Studies on testosterone and porn

Erotic images and films cause your testosterone levels to spike up. However, these levels come down after ejaculation. 

But what happens assuming you watched porn and did not cum? According to Helhammer et al., pornographic scenes stimulate your body to produce more testosterone. 

The levels remain relatively the same if ejaculation or sex does not happen soon. More so the effects of the spike last for longer leaving you with more than enough time to capitalize on the same. Therefore, you are likely to experience some minor benefits once you hit the gym. 

Summary

It is all in the mind if you thought watching porn would make you reach your physical fitness goals fast and easy.

Porn, apart from being good for the average lad influences testosterone production positively. Anyhow, the levels are not substantial enough to grant you a win once you step into the boxing ring.

In short, you need to up your game when it comes to shredding as porn does you no good. Hitting the right notes and eating the right meals will certainly advance your agenda. However, you can enjoy the action while it lasts. 

After all, there is no greater feeling than cumming!
