A question I often receive is:
"is it ever ok for me to ejaculate?
When you're new to the lifestyle, it's important to hold your semen for longer periods of time because it's very likely that you're coming from a place of depletion. There's an important reboot period where you are rewiring your brain and releasing old habits.
Once you've gotten your energy levels back up, it's not going to be a huge deal if you ejaculate from time to time.
How often you do so depends on your age, health, lifestyle, and other personal factors. In general, if you feel depleted after you ejaculate, if you feel fatigued or unmotivated the next day, you should probably retain for longer periods.
It's easy to get into an obsessive, ego driven approach to semen retention. The most important thing should always be your intention. It shouldn't be rigidly avoiding ejaculation at all cost it should be an overall intention of making the most out of your sexual energy, recycling this energy, and doing your best not to release it.
