Is NoFap really worth it? What are the benefits?

Yeah this.

There are some advantages to quitting porn though, especially really hardcore stuff. And if you masturbate so much it interferes with your life that's a problem. But no, if you're not ejaculating regularly it increases the risk of prostate cancer.

I think there's a placebo effect from it but the same thing could be achieved using any other "technique" that makes you feel like you're making a drastic change and then cruising on the confidence to make meaningful changes that gives you. However if you just start with a meaningful change you'd skip the bullshit and feel good about doing that.

Thanks, I think this is a really good explanation.

I do think I need to cut back for a reason you hinted at, though - I've basically been a porn addict for a while, and I have to figure out how to control it. The porn I'm into isn't extreme at all, it's pretty tame, and I only fap once or twice a day, but in grad school I was late to a few classes because I felt the strong need to do it. When I was living with a group of people a few years ago, I'm certain I got walked in on, but they were too polite to say anything, and I still think back on that with pretty strong self-hatred.

One thing I think I may have been tripping myself up over, though, is objectifying women. Advocates for NoFap talk about how they looked at women like objects before, and as people now. I don't feel I ever dehumanized women like that, but I was too focused on the physical for a while. But I think maybe the answer is that seeing them sexually like that is totally normal, I just need to not be a creep about it.

This has gone into /qq/ mode really but it's a subject that's not just about sexuality here.

Just my shitty hot take but we objectify most of the people we see in a way. When you walk through a crowd you don't think of every person there as a complex set of needs, with different experiences, perspectives and values you just think of them as something to avoid. To me the problem isn't objectifying people but objectifying them when their personhood is relevent. Or at least your interactions are more complex.

In short you need to not get caught up on the objectified view when it's insufficient. It hurts them more than you usually but it hurts you too.

I suspect because porn portrays women as just sex objects it ingrains the objectification. Perhaps you need to go experience women as people to help undo that. Two ways come to mind. Talking to women and just asking questions is the first one. You don't need a whole life story, but if you go to a gig and get band recomendations, get a lecture on the history of the british labour party or get beaten senseless at halo it helps. The other option is read some media written by women from a woman's perspective. Make sure you find stuff that's great primarily because you want to actually enjoy and finish it but even if it's mundane and not drastically altered by the perspective it'll reinforce women as complete people too.

is ALWAYS a good decision

Quitting porn is a good idea.
But quitting fapping increases your chances to get testicular cancer and makes you crazy in the head.

Its no surprise that the nonut-month came from the rightwing-tinfoil-heads.

I had an ex that liked to help me practice "semen retention" as she called it lol we would just edge for hours and do other kinky stuff she said it had some crazy benefits, like it was a key component of a lot of magic she wanted me to practice(oh ya she was a crazy one guys, but that boots was phenomonal..) like by not Nutting and thinking about what u want to accomplish while retaining ur nut or eventually letting it go would somehow affect the rest of the world...


I didn't buy into all that, but I sure did enjoy all the extended hours of coitus and sexy cosplay and public sexy times etc etc etc that we got up to hehehehehe


Personally when I don't jack it as often I notice a slight change in my anxiety levels, if I haven't jerked it that day I'm usually more confident and likely to want to hit on girls and stuff, but if I have I'm more likely to be the typical stonerbro chill trippy hippie dude that just goes with the flow.


The biggest benefit I ever saw in not orgasming for a few weeks is that when I do finally bust that nut, it is a righteously huge one that truly deserves to be sprayed all over a pretty face and body hehehehe

Today I did not fap
The sun did not shine
The birds did not sing
The laughter stopped
And the tears rolled down my face
My heart suffers in silence

Advantage of nofap is that all those retarded cunts on 4chan will die in 20 years from prostate cancer.

Honestly if you have a problem with chronic masturbation or pornography taking a break or at least regulating it to a reasonable amount can't hurt. Also if you have a loving and respecting partner you probably won't feel the compulsive urge to masturbate as much, although maybe you still will that's common too. But as far as the idea that "never masturbating ever gives you superpowers and improves your personality" i find that hard to believe. Basically what i'm trying to say is everything is moderation. To much fapping is too much. And becoming reliant on porn to get off isn't good either and requires a bit of sex therapy. Putting horny energy into good use when you have nothing else is also not bad advice. But don't fall into the trap of "never cumming ever is healthy". That shit is stupid

genuinely cackled out loud

love that this website is like the last sane corner of the internet
good take after good take itt

Extra 2cents I can think to add:

  • the real "problem" that weirdos are trying to solve with nofap is not having close/genuine/sexual relationships with women
  • The solution is of course to actually go interact with women and have those relationships
  • Jerking off/porn is like a bandaid or supplement you use to make up for when you can't do that
  • That (like weed or literally anything else that makes you feel nice) only becomes a problem when you get reliant on the bandaid and too much of a weenie to get out and have the "real" experiences
  • The thing at the core of it all is you, and managing how alive/motivated or depressed you feel

Also, it should be repeated that porn/jerking off is NOT the same as sex psychologically. They are categorically different activities that seem (to me) to use different parts of the brain. Like doing yoga alone vs. playing a team sport.

Example: I am married to a gorgeous woman who I love fucking and fantasize about constantly. I ALSO watch porn and jerk off regularly, because it's not physically possible for us to have sex as often as I wanna nut. If we go for too long without fucking though, I actually start to lose interest in porn/masturbating and just think about sex with her constantly until we do it.

Ill tell you my experience and you better be grateful because i dont feel like typing this much damnit. so listen up.
Ive gone months on no fap. over three i lost count.
benefits? more energy, better immune system (i can tell, my allergies get worse every time i fap, its like clockwork) and strangely, stronger legs
CONS:
More irritable, cant sleep, uncontrollable random erections that refuse to go away, night emissions, strange pervy dreams that make me worry im talking in my sleep.
MY CONCLUSION:
If there are any benefits to it, they shrink in comparison to the multiplication of the potential to embarrass myself not to mention that having night emissions seems like fapping without the benefit of wanting to and with alot more inconvenient of a mess. so if you want to be able to squat more and dont mind living with a permanently uncontrollable dick, go for it, but an erection that refuses to go down can really suck. fuck no fap

i havent ejaculated in over two months.

i also have not had a wet dream....

sometimes i feel a werid sensation in my nuts that i have never felt before in my life. im 32 years old btw...

i dont notice any difference in my life other than that weird sensation i feel in my nuts.....

the only reason i have not ejaculated was because i was trying to build up my load to cum into my coworker whom is anonly fans model, she flaked on me the night we were supposed to fuck, and after she broke my heart. she played me like a fiddle. that was two months ago, and i still have not busted a nut since then...

Whenever I find myself in your situation, I always get off soon after it’s clear I’m not having sex. Damn dawg, that sucks your heart is broken but don’t let that make you ignore your prostate health.
