Low Sperm Count & You: Real UltraFacts
Mike S* has stated a pressing concern:
People, people, people -- we've mentioned many ultra dangers today, but have (perhaps purposely) ignored the most serious of all: low sperm count. Men -- it's unspoken presence surely torments us all. If I understand correctly, after finishing Bull Run, I was probably only half the man I used to be. Is that right?
Mr Trail Safety will now present some straight facts regarding Low Sperm Count:
Mike, give yourself a hand and rest easy. A lo-elevation 50 like BRR will not deplete your precious bodily fluids to that "red-line" state.
With sufficient rehydration and optimal visual/tactile stimuli, you will maintain a sufficently fresh genetic inventory. Truth be told, the little wigglers will be a more virile and vigourous crop than what you produced in your sedimentary former lives. You're likely to produce more hale and hearty offspring with monster quads now than you were before. Consider this to be pre-natal conditioning.
But to answer your question re: depletion. In cases of high training [ie 100-180+mpw], and immediately following a 100mi race; there have been instances where ejaculate consisted of micro-granular emissions, similar to that of a dust-puff at the climactic moment. This is not especially uncomfortable to the "emittor", but could be problematic for the recipient, esp. if susceptible to air-borne pollen-type allergens. The colors can be interesting, and are the subject of numerous monographs [Binkster:1991, Sevende-Sandia:1993, Wanker/Blindsider:1980],
Fortunately, this condition is transient, and can be treated with the appropriate supplements [SpoogeBuilder, by D&L Holistic Industries] to indiscretely name one commercial sponsor of this info-post.
As ever, with your mind in mind,
Mr Trail Safety
