In this article, Devi speaks with Jerome Stuart Nichols from The Butters about the Semen Retention Controversy and separating fact from fiction.

What is really true and what isn’t when it comes to semen retention for lingam owners?


Devi shares with Jerome…

“Let’s discuss the ‘lie’ vs. ‘the truth’.


#1. You say – ‘But these claims have no scientific basis whatsoever. Literally pulled out of their ass and sadly not out of their sack.‘ – This is incorrect. The physiological benefits of semen retention are based on data that has been collated for over 5000 years. It is based in EASTERN science. Eastern science predates Western science by several thousand years.


#2. This is also incorrect – ‘Semen retention can lead to a buildup of anxious energy that can’t be released through any other means except ejaculation.’ – Orgasm is a release of energy. Orgasm and ejaculation are different functions of the nervous system. This has been documented by both Eastern and Western ‘science’.


#3. You say- ‘The concept of orgasm without ejaculation, also known as edging.’ – This is incorrect. ‘Edging’ is a practice that may LEAD to non-ejaculatory orgasms. Orgasming without ejaculation is not ‘edging’. My husband is not ‘edging’ when he has multiple non-ejaculatory orgasms while buried balls deep in my vagina. That’s not edging. That’s called an ORGASM.


#4. ‘On a physical level, One study found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times per month were less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who ejaculated less frequently’. This study has been debunked by multiple sources, including the researchers themselves who stated very clearly that the results they were seeing could be attributed to the frequency of sex and healthy relationships, NOT necessarily the ejaculation. And that’s only ONE of the caveats the researchers included in the journal.
