Ejaculation -- Follow-up on lecithin

edited July 2012 in Married Life
Last week, we had a good discussion on vasectomy.  In one comment, @GumbyMan related his experiences with lecithin supplements:
* I had a Vas 12 years ago.
* I have never had any pain associated with it.
* I never noticed a drop in ejaculation amount.
However, now as I get older, I have noticed a drop in libido and in ejaculate volume - but as it has been so long I doubt that it is from Vas - I have started taking Lecithin as a supplement and I have noticed at least doubling amount of sperm [semen] and orgasms feel a lot better.  Link to WebMD forum.
I have also been taking some testosterone/Libido supplements, so I am not sure which is causing the most benefit (not very scientific as I started both at about the same time, but who cares... the orgasms are much more intense and pleasurable!)
At that link, back in 2009, betweenthesheets had written:
You can increase the amount of semen you ejaculate [with] Lecithin, or Soya Lecithin (same thing)... I don't take them all the time, rather, I start the day before I know we're going to have sex. You pretty much have to mega-dose them, that is, take 3-4-5 capsules about 4 times a day. After only 2 days... I ejaculate almost twice as much as without them. Plus, my semen is whiter and thicker, and Heather says it tastes milder and sweeter... it gets to be sort of a pain swallowing 4-5 of those huge gelcaps 4 times a day, so I only do it on weekends or special occasions... my orgasms feel especially good when I take the Lecithin...
My own vasectomy was 12 years ago.  I noticed a decline in ejaculate volume by about half, and a corresponding modest lessening of the physical pleasure of orgasming.  This effect was gradual, and I honestly don't know whether or not the vasectomy contributed to it.  After all, this is commonly associated with aging into one's 50s, even 40s (I'm mid-fifties now).  There's also a tradeoff here:  overexcitement leading to premature ejaculation was a worry of mine in my twenties and thirties, and that's completely in the past.  Now, I can perform for as long as I wish; I have to add fantasy thoughts to physical stimulation in order to come.  This should help me be a better lover for the slow-to-excite Mrs. mgwk.  Theoretically... but that's a relationship story I'll save for another time...

So -- the experiment:

$8 at the local supermarket got me a bottle of Schiff 21 Grain Lecithin, 100 softgel caps.  I'm on day 6 of taking 5 caps on waking, 5 at lunch, and 5 at bedtime.  That's three doses of 6,800 mg of lecithin, or 20 grams per day.

Thus far:  no effect.  I don't notice any increase or any decrease in volume, or any corresponding changes in sensation.  As to mildness and sweetness -- hmmm, I'll have to work on completing that part of the report.  ;-)

On to the next idea...

    I'd be interested to read about the effects this large dose has on you. I'd love to be able to shoot a load like a pornstar and, like you, have been supplementing with lecithin. However my intake is less at only 1200mg 3x a day. I haven't seen any noticeable changes yet, although it has only been 2 weeks, and I was assuming it wouldn't be an instant thing.

    @pocketaces -- The Schiff Lecithin bottle says "contains soy," so I that seems to be its source.  I doubt that a purified chemical like this contains biologically-significant amounts of estrogen-like compounds.  But there's no easy way to tell.

    @alpha_runner -- As far as I can tell, the only impact of the lecithin is the reminder that I don't like taking lots of big pills.  Color and taste, no change. I run out today, and don't plan to continue.  I hope you report back on your experience -- could be one of those things that works for some guys, not for others.

    Ok, well as I said I didn't do the experiment very scientifically!
    I also started taking Brad King Libido supplement and Male Energy at the same time both are supposed to increase testosterone and sex drive.


    All I know is that I have had bigger loads, even the second ejaculation of the day is more than it was before, and the pleasure of the orgasm is much more intense.

    Also, I have had a life long Delayed Ejaculation challenge, it takes a long time to get to an orgasm. often it doesn't happen and I am left disapointed and waiting until next time. This past weekend (my wife works on the road so I hadn't seen her for 5 days) I had three orgasms in 24 hours!! This is very unusual for me. One the first night and then two back to back the next afternoon.

    Other factors that helped, I hadn't masturbated or had an orgasm for about 5 days, My wife is ovulating, And my Alpha/MAP whatever is working well and she really wanted to have sex and she lasted a lot longer than usual (especially the third time), and I wasn't 'attached to outcome' I didn't expect to have an orgasm so I just relaxed and was having fun pleasuring her.

    I'll keep you posted. :-)

    Oh, another thought... drinking lots of water! as ejaculate is like 98% water or something like that, if you are dehydrated that may effect volume.

    ... and taste. A lot.

    Lecithin gel tablet (at least one a day, 1200 mg) -  definitely the best supplement I have discovered for increasing cum load.  At least double the normal amount, probably more on some occasions, and a much more intense ejaculation,  which also turns my wife on hugely.

    I'm not sure why you'd worry about this, unless for some reason it's a problem. Anyway, you'd probably be better off just staying well hydrated, cleaning up your diet, and supplementing with zinc--you lose a lot of zinc when you ejaculate, and your body also uses it to make test.

    This is an old thread but here goes. 
    Maca helps boost your drive 
    Tribulus helps boost your T and blood flow. 
    Zinc helps a bit with volume.  

    All three will boost everything your looking for.
