On average, their DNA fragmentation index — a measure of sperm damage — fell to 26 percent from 34 percent, Greening told the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Amsterdam on Tuesday.

Researchers believe that frequent sex or fapping reduces the amount of time sperm are exposed to damaging elements in testicular ducts. Yay for daily health routines!
