No-Fap Nonsense

Another peculiar manosphere trend of late is many taking up of the “No-Fap Challenge.”  While this seems like a noble undertaking, especially in an era of on-demand porn overload from the internet, it becomes a hollow challenge via a technicality.

That technicality being that most of the guys taking up the challenge are having regular sex with one or more girls during the challenge.  And what happens when your sexual needs are satisfied?

You have no desire to jerk off, and it’s easy to not jerk off when you’re having regular sex.

Summed up, if you take up No-Fap and are ejaculating in or on a girl after sex, you’re cheating.  It’s like “going green” or being a slacktavist, meaning you’re undertaking something that entails no real effort or thought on your part.

I’ll put it another way:  banging a girl while professing “No-Fap” is like giving up drinking beer and replacing it with whiskey, but since you’re not drinking beer, it’s okay.

Wait a second though, doesn’t this mode of thought sound slightly familiar?

It sounds like a rationalization hamster talking.

Personally, I never made it past 3 weeks.  The downfall for me has always been a particularly vivid wet dream (yes, I do count that as jerking off).

Honestly, if your body makes you do something it’s usually a good idea to ask yourself “maybe what I’m doing currently isn’t the right thing to do.”

  1. Your logic is inherently flawed.

    “Summed up, if you take up No-Fap and are ejaculating in or on a girl after sex, you’re cheating. It’s like “going green” or being a slacktavist, meaning you’re undertaking something that entails no real effort or thought on your part.

    When you jack off, you use your hand and finish on yourself. It’s a solitary act. Not even sex. Just dumping a load to appease your pent up sexual desire.

    With sex, you are with a partner and you usually finish in or on them (or in a condom; whatever). [BV: I’m talking end results (ejaculation), not the path that was taken (masturbation or sex).]

    “Personally, I never made it past 3 weeks. The downfall for me has always been a particularly vivid wet dream (yes, I do count that as jerking off).”

    You shouldn’t count that as a downfall. You aren’t self-stimulating yourself or desensitizing the dopamine receptors in your brain. [When I say “vivid wet dream,” I mean that you fully ejaculate like you were having sex or masturbating, not just a wet spot in your boxers from a spot of seminal fluid. Besides, how else do you get to that point without self-stimulation (even unconsciously)?]

    “Honestly, if your body makes you do something it’s usually a good idea to ask yourself “maybe what I’m doing currently isn’t the right thing to do.””

    Eh, sexual sublimation has been around for a long time. Napoleon Hill wrote about it in his book “Think and Grow Rich” (1930s’ tome, I believe). I think he called it sexual transmutation. A lot of athletes don’t ejaculate for as long as a month before a fight. Georges St.-Pierre, Welterweight champion in the UFC and one of the greatest Mixed Martial Artists of all-time, practices this (He said so himself on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast). Muhammad Ali allegedly did this.

    It’s not a must. It might be a placebo effect. There have been studies done that have showed how porn has a major impact on possibly inducing erectile dysfunction as well as desensitizing avid viewers of it to real women and reality itself. But some people can watch porn, get up and go about their day, bang a broad and have no problem doing so. [I didn’t mention porn, but I agree. Too much porn is a bad thing.]

    Personally, I feel more sharp when I abstain from masturbation. Porn has never been my Achilles’ heel, anyway. And I don’t stop masturbation completely. I feel more energetic and alive, more motivation to go and work out, talk to women, talk to people in general and spend days feeling strong and virile. Is it a placebo? Possibly. If it is, it’s a fantastic placebo and I’ll continue to enjoy it.

    I wouldn’t call it nonsense. And if you see wet dreams as your body ‘making you release’ seminal fluids, then yes, that is your body emitting some excess seminal fluids that have built up in the urethra because the tract can only handle so much. However, having sex with a woman is much better than masturbation, and in all likelihood psychologically you will feel a hell of a lot better cumming with a woman than pulling your micropud to a tepid dribble on your belly.

    I don’t think porn is the devil nor do I think masturbation is bad. But porn is relatively new, since about 20 years ago or less since avid viewing was capable and only 10 years or less since high speed internet has been a ubiquitous concept.

    I personally believe having a full set of balls is a good thing. Some have said that it makes you nervous, but if I were to jack off before a date, I’d be tired and would have no interest in courting a girl. At that point I’d rather eat a large pizza and go to sleep. Full balls hungry for a release? Energy to the core. For me, anyway. [I agree, that’s Regola #1 for me]

    No fap nonsense? Nah. Just a possible ‘tool’ for men everywhere to use for a possible outlet for energy. Unfound and unscientific for the most part? Sure, but it’s a new thing. And anecdotes aren’t bad. For some, it has no effect. For me, I feel great. [It may be a tool, but in the truest sense, meaning no ejaculation at all, No-Fap while having regular sex isn’t a challenge.]
