    Default Does No Fap work??

    Ok so im not sure if many of you are aware of the fairly recent ideas of no fap (masturbation for you non nerds).

    Essentially the idea surrounds the fact that as a species, internet pornography and the ability to see countless stunning naked women is incredibly new. And as men we are not designed to see this many hot chicks, this in turn leads to detrimental effects on our brains dopamine levels.

    Theres articles stating its effects of dopamine levels leading to increased: concentration, energy, motivation, confidence, desire for social interactions as well as a reduction in social anxiety, depression and lethargy.

    Ive read a lot of first hand accounts of people who have tried it and it is universally good. I thought id give it a go for 30 days (if I can manage it!). I dont have a problem with confidence, depression or social anxiety but it is always good to have more energy, desire and motivation!

    Basically to do no fap you have to avoid porn and not fap! Sex is fine though. Ive already tried it once and lasted 5 days But im on day 6 now so lets see what happens. Heres some literature on it:

    http://www.psychologytoday.com/print/36314

    http://www.yourbrainonporn.com/node/79

    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=139933473

    Heres some first hand accounts

    *Edit

    Im sure there will be questions regarding testosterone levels, test levels will rise up to around a week of not erm... "sending forth your seed", but will level off after that. Im not sure of any literature on longer term studies.

    Its normal to masturbate even with a gf.

    But no fap works imo, more rest and better sleep...until you get so horny that cant sleep, I think masturbate has to exist but at a minimium.

    I call bullsh!t, I have a woman and I look at porn and "take matters into my own hands" once in a while. I haven't felt a difference in my body. If we weren't meant to do that are hands wouldn't be there.

    I've actually went and fapped after I just had relations with my gf. I just chalked it up to having to much mojo in the tank.

    Most certainly NOT in... nope, pretty sure I'll just carry on!

    I'm pretty hard pressed to see the difference between sex and masturbation anyways, other than obviously much higher levels of arousal and enjoyment in sex.

    Hum intresting, not sure how long I can make it. Especially if I have to think about it, I have manged a month or 2 with no fapping and no love form the wife because life just got to busy, then one day it gets mentioned and then something has to be done about it.
    Im the 7' tall Green Giant in the room.....

    Wasn't there just a discussion about this topic last month or two where a bunch of studies were cited that added up to the idea that a good wank is good for you?

    I find it pretty hard to believe that evolution would have allowed a negative reaction to frequent ejaculation... that really seems like the exact opposite of how it should work, I can't even think of a more anti-logical thing from an evolutionary point of view!

    But that's just logic, logic fails often and I admit that. I'm just saying that for me to even remotely believe something like this I'd want to see all the studies that say the opposite (bet ya anything there's plenty) and I'd want to read articles by very knowledgeable people comparing the two opposing camps.

    Till then, I'm masturbating to my heart's content.

    I think 2 weeks is the most I've ever gone (apart from like the first 12 years of my life obviously)
    That was when I went on holiday without my GF.

    I don't buy that not fapping is good for you. If anything I would have thought it would be the opposite

    Its different due to the effects on the brain and on your dopamine levels. The findings also focus on fapping to porn.

    Basically im gonna try it and see if I notice anything, and keep you updated.
