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.”
