Getting to grips with the numbers behind the man's part of the reproductive system. Although I'm a biologist, I rarely think much about what the cloudy white stuff contains, but in fact semen is far more complex than my endearing childhood image of mini tadpoles swimming around in thin wallpaper paste. There are many features of human semen that are very familiar to most people, but their importance isn't appreciated. For a start, the ejaculate isn't of a uniform consistency.

The reason for emission may play a role in any potential benefits. A comprehensive study — the one that launched all the headlines — of nearly 32, males between and suggests that frequent ejaculation may lower the risk of prostate cancer.

The average volume of ejaculate is 5 mls, which is approximately a teaspoonful. However, this volume is highly variable with some men producing significantly more and others producing less.
