Young males are most often affected, though similar symptoms have been reported in females with excessive vaginal discharge or leucorrhea, which is also considered a "vital fluid".
Premature ejaculation and impotence are commonly seen. Other somatic symptoms like weakness, easy fatiguability, palpitations(unpleasant sensations of irregular and/or forceful beating of the heart), insomnia, low mood, guilt and anxiety are often present. Males sometimes report a subjective feeling that their penises have shortened.

“There is one great fact, characteristic of this our nineteenth century, a fact which no party dares deny. On the one hand, there have started into life industrial and scientific forces which no epoch of former human history had ever suspected.

—Karl Marx (18181883)
