Definitionsglands (fluids from the prostate and the Cowper's glands). Sperm accounts for only 3 % of the average human ejaculate; the other 97% consists of fluids from the prostate gland and the seminal vesicles. In an average ejaculate, a man releases between 300 to 500 million sperms; only about 200 sperms survive the journey up the vagina, through the uterus, and into the oviduct. Semen has a nutritional value of about 6 calories per average ejaculate. Reverend Sylvester Graham (1794-1851) preached that ejaculating deprived a man of the vital fluids essential to maintain vital energies (health and vitality). According to Graham, each time a man ejaculates, he puts his physical health at risk. Graham preached against the dangers of ' wasting the seed ' through masturbation and frequent marital intercourse.
