I was told that it is reabsorbed back into the body but I do not remember who told me so it may not be accurate...

You're quite right Karen, it's broken down and reabsorbed.  I'm sure a biochemist will be along soon enough to tell us more...

If memory serves me right they are reabsorbed into the epididymis after approx months. However there is still some confusion over what happens tot he mature sperm that are in the vas deferens, some studies have said they degrade slowly, others have said they come out in the urine, but nothing conclusive to my knowledge.
As for healthy, there is some speculation that regular ejaculation can reduce the chance of prostate cancer.

I always thought that wet dreams serve the purpose of clearing out the old sperm if they weren't ejaculated for too long and giving way to fresh new ones. (As wet dreams I mean the "spontaneous" ejaculation/orgasm during the sleep).
I searched it up on Wikipedia and it sais that it is not clear yet, what's the role of this phenomenon.

Yep they do perform that function, but sometimes they don't always happen in men with a suppressed libido either from medicines or psychological reasons. Women have 'wet' dreams too so its not just for that reason, but it is one of them.

I think they wander around all dispondant, with their hands in their pockets, kicking empty cans.  [:-'(]

Hi there,
I like drinking the sperm of my boyfriend and I think all women must do the same as your hubby/boyfriend will remain healthy and happy as always!

Quite right Variola; frequent ejaculation through intercourse or masturbation seems to confer a benefit of reduced risk of prostate cancer.  See this article: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn4861-frequent-ejaculation-may-protect-against-cancer.html#.VFy7eXmQHt0

After my bowel cancer op zero sperm or seamen from 16 years ago.  I guess the surgeon just connected up wrong.   I think it's re absorbed

I wonder how the American anti abortion fanatics feel about all these poor sperm that don't get to perform the task that god intended for them

There is a technique in meditation training where you can reduced the urge of sex and control ejaculation before you get the wet dreams. The semen can also be reabsorbed back into the body and in turns become energy. Join this group if you are interested. https://www.facebook.com/groups/774616582621370/

I know that this will jar you, but your sperm is always recycled and this is why you must put it out on the verge ready for collection.

Um...actually, the epidymis is the structure for storage and maturation of sperm; not the seminal vesicles. It's the epidymis. The seminal vesicle only provides seminal fluid and non-cellular components of semen (prostaglandins, fructose sugar, seminal fluid, local regulators). So, it's not the seminal vesicle that stores semen or just sperm. There. Said it. AP Biology.

so if sperms get reabsorbed into the body, dose it mean that additional nutrients are provided for the body? this idea of sperm recycling surely sounds like a positive thing for health, does it actually?
