As a 40 year old male, based on your answers, you have jacked the beanstalk approximately:
Using your average time to vinegar stroke, you've spent around:
of your life shaking the ketchup bottle. Or in a more readable way, that works out to be:
Getting a little bit more graphic; if you were to work out the amount of baby batter
that amounts to, you'd be looking at something like 11402ml, which in a more (or perhaps less)
digestable format is about:

Aha, the curious type. Based on over 30 studies, the volume of seminal fluid in an ejaculation averages out to be 3.4ml. However, whilst we're all aware that the first
pop *might* be 3.4ml, if you keep going, you'll eventually hit the ghost load.
We're also all aware that this doesn't last forever
and pretty soon (maybe the next day) you're ready to go again. So we looked into how much seminal fluid you make each day. This turned out to be a pretty hard number to find. And believe us, we read a ton. The commonly cited number, however, is 0.4ml (Clark and Sherins, 1986).
Except based on our own (and our colleagues) first hand (pun intended) knowledge, plus a ton of reading on forums, websites, and goodness knows where else, we sort of concluded that a) the body holds more than one load (again, super hard to find out
volume in the body. What do you go on? Ball size? Prostate size? 2-5% comes from the testes, 65-75% from the seminal vesicles, 25-30% from the prostate and less than 1% from the bulbourethral glands), and b) that you could probably shoot two pretty decent
loads in a week.
So we crunched some numbers and went on one time being 3.4ml, two times 6.4ml (a slight decrease) and then pretty much halved each spurt from that point onwards (which averages out to about 1.4ml a go if you're on it once a day). Which seemed fair enough. But if anyone has a *really decent* study on this, we'll re-run the numbers.
To complicate matters further, we also discovered "after adjusting for covariates, semen volume decreased by 0.03ml per year of age" from the age of 22. So we've thrown that math in as well.
We made our baseline 3.4ml up to 22, when it decreases by 0.03ml for every subsequent year.
In case you're curious, the seminal fluid isn't ALL sperm. It's mostly there to help the sperm do their 'thang'... But in a healthy, fully grown male there's something like 300 million swimmers in every ml of seminal fluid.
Lesson over. Phew.
Now let's assume you live to the ripe old age of 84, the current expected age for a man.
Were you to continue to beat the meat as often as you are now, you would have another glorious:
to look forward to. Which, if you're going to make some space in the diary, is about:
It's also another:
or so that you're going to have to find tissues for :-)
