umm, sorry to post twice, at least its not the same thing... umm, after masturbation, (a few minutes after ejaculation), it feels as though my testicles are slightly quivering. i dont know what it is or if its just my imagination. a friend of mine suggested that it was, and i quote, "your balls refilling with cum, dude"... which im pretty sure is not true, because semen and sperm is primarily created in the prostate, assuming i read the article correctly. oh yeah: does anyone know how long it takes for the semen to get from the prostate to the testicles, assuming thats how it works? im hoping im not asking something thats already been answered... anyway, thanks for tolerating my ignorance.

Unless you're in pain, I'd not worry about it. (I will say, however, that your friend is way off - the testes don't work that way.)

I think there's a little bit of confusion here on how exactly the male reproductive system works. Sperm aren't created in the prostate, they're made in the testes. In case you're finding the article a bit confusing, behold, the (very) simplified version:

The testes create sperm. The sperm move to the epididymis to mature. During ejaculation, they move into the vas deferens. The vas deferens is connected to the seminal vesicles, where the sperm get mixed up with some of the fluids that make up semen. At approximately the location of the prostate gland, the seminal vesicles connect to the urethra, and the urethra carries semen to the outside of the body. The whole process, from sperm moving into the vas deferens to semen being ejaculated, takes very little time.

Whew. Does that make sense? If you have any more questions, just come on back and ask away.
