good point.
IIRC, that actually reflects an ancient medical understanding of the path of sperm, and so it is likely Chazal thought this was the path it took as well.

but indeed, they don't mention that it is assur, and so on. and its entirety, that page reads like... wow.

There are some other pearls of wisdom on their site:
http://www.briskodesh.org/pages/bris/spilling-seed.htm
# Part of the seminal fluid (shichvas zera) comes from the brain, this is sent down the spine.
# When a person spills seed he is wasting away part of his brain.
# This lowers all functions of the brain especially memory.


Lots more interesting issues there.

The question I pose is as follows:
Does a Breslover Chossid who knows anatomy and modern science have to be 'shomer habris'? There aren't any demons nowadays, and one's brain does not shrink due to seminal emissions. The site doesn't seem to explain that the Torah forbids such actions - so maybe it is OK?

Just some food for thought as to how stupid you can get from ignoring the Torah and focusing on Kabbalistic explanations of everything.

What if the atmosphere in the mikvah is unkosher, with people hanging out, smoking, discussing loshon hora, lack of tznius and perhaps even worse things ? These things exist in some places.

Perhaps the principle of יצא שכרו בהפסדו needs to be invoked at times.
