"Yes, there are studies that show T-levels do increase after a workout but as I've said, it is only temporary. The effect also seems to be more pronounced in younger than older guys, which makes sense as T levels decrease with age. Some…"

Tim replied to Marvin's discussion Gains effect by self-pleasure? in the group Exercise
"No..it's a myth! Sex or masturbation does not deplete T levels so it will not ruin your workout gains. However having a high sex drive is the result of high T levels. T levels do go up right after a workout but it is only  temporary."

Gains effect by self-pleasure?

A friend had informed me that he tends to relieve himself after a workout due to the testosterone buildup, but I've also read that doing so would ruin your gains and render working out unless. Is this true? Should a man not pleasure himself after a grueling workout?See More

Read your recent post in Growing in Manliness, trying to reply...but keep losing my post (things are hectic at work).  I'll try to post soon, we're going through similiar things.  I wonder how much of your backstory leading to these issues is like my own. I'm posting here so you don't feel everyone is just ignoring your post.  

I think, I need to learn to trust again, and it sounds like you're struggling with the same thing.  Maybe we can help each other?  Send me a message once we're friends and we can talk.
