How much protein is really in semen? And is it enough for me to substitute it for a protein shake? As you know, I love giving BJs and it sure is more fun and fulfilling than mixing up a protein shake. I've never had a lover groan and pull my hair while watching me down a protein shake, either.
So, I decided to find out how much protein is really in semen so I could answer my question. First, I scoured the internet for information from all the most
First, the basics.
Semen is made up of sperm, water, sugars, proteins and amino acids, vitamins (C, B12, and choline), hormones, enzymes, and and trace elements of some body byproducts (lactic acid, uric acid, nitrogen). Interestingly, there's almost twice as much sugar as protein in semen, but we're talking about such a small amount that the carbs won't ruin your Atkins diet.
To calculate the protein content of semen, we need to know the typical volume of semen per ejaculate. In other words, what is the average load volume? There is some discrepancy in the literature, but the consensus seems to be that it ranges from 3/4 of a teaspoon to a full tablespoon. That's a pretty big range for average, but there it is. I know for a fact that Webcam Guy's loads were a lot bigger than a tablespoon, but he's not average, of course. Anyway, we'll calculate the average volume at about a teaspoon.
Scientists calculate between 171 mg and 500 mg per load. Yes, that's quite a range, too. As you can see, an exact calculation will be impossible to do using averages, but we can get close. Let's use 500 mg just because it will make the math easier, but be aware that it will be lower in most cases.
There are 20 grams of protein in the brand of protein shake I use. Because 500 mg = .5 gram, it would take 40 loads of semen to replace the protein content of my shake. Clearly, I can't get enough protein that way to replace my daily shake. Dang.
But I sure would love to try.
I know what some of you are thinking. Is the amount of protein the same for the ejaculate of a man who has had a vasectomy? (Isn't that what you were thinking?) Well, because there's lots of protein in sperm, there must be less protein in ejaculate with sperm. However, sperm only make up 1-5% of the stuff in semen and the other stuff in semen also has some protein, so while there is less protein in a load of cum without sperm, there's still a reasonable amount.
So, if I were blowing a guy who'd had a vasectomy, it could take about 60 - 80 loads to replace my protein shake. Wow. That's a lot. It could take me 6 months just to replace one shake!
As long as we're speaking of semen, you may want to know that a load averages 5-15 calories, depending on the size of the load and the man's diet, so you can tell assure your wife (or Lover, or both) that giving you head and swallowing won't ruin her diet.
