    I'm starting my 90-day NoFap trial. Easy mode; sex is A.O.K. I might try hard mode.

    Feel free to participate.

    Supplements are fine; progesterone and coffee will be my go-tos for controlling urges, along with pregnenolone, and B-vitamins.

    Nomenclature:

    S = intercourse orgasms
    M = masturbation orgasms

    Day 0
    S: 0
    M: 1

    Will start tomorrow. I'm making the entries short, so I can stick to it.

    Share any input, tricks, tips, logs, or experiences!

    If you have sex then nofap is pointless. The effects of it only come from zero ejactulation for a long period of time. If you only had sex once a week then obviously nofap would offer something. But the true experience of nofap comes from at least 60 days of absolutely zero ejacutlaiton or even stroking stimulation or "pre" ejactulaiton or almost ejactulating. It's like water only fasting. The true benefits don't kick in until deep in the number of days from the start. There are some benefits with each day but the true benefits take more days.

    Do you speak from personal experience?

    Many would say that the benefits come from resetting and retraining pathways in the brain from the hyper-normal stimulus of pornography to the normal stimulus of real sex, and real women, which, if anything, is easier when you're having regular sex than not.

    When you do that successfully then sex is just better - more presence. Married men / men with girlfriends potentially have a lot to gain from nofap.

    I completely disagree, my bodies responses to both are completely different, and the responses have been the same before I was thinking about what my responses were, so I don't believe they're in my head.

    Abstinence from intercourse ejaculation, especially if you have a partner, seems ludicrous. I agree with raypeatclips. Sex and masturbation for me produce different moods and subjective physiological states post-orgasm. I could go nofap for 3 months, but no amount of mental acuity and creative vigor is worth abstaining from intercourse (and climax) with my wife. I'll pay the price.

    Abstaining from sex with a loving partner would be the dumbest advice ever. Remember the advice "If it tastes good, spit it out!" Another piece of ridiculous advice that would only lead to a miserable existence.

    No fap will lead to some wicked wet dreams haha. Wish you well my dude. I have tried a couple times and hit some pretty high numbers. What always helped me was keeping tally marks so I could look at them and be like ok mofo, do you really wanna build up to 24 tallies again or do the deed? lol anyway cheers.

    Who would want to do that? 60 days? For a small energy boost?
    The point of nofap isnt for some supreme nirvana boost it's is just to improve your drive and ambition on a daily basis. Men before the age of widespread internet pornography were much more virile and ambitious, and fapping takes away that drive and makes you a bit mroe tired and desensitized to some of lifes little pleasures...

    But clearly the primary funciton of nofap is to help get a man a girlfriend, and this implicated having sexual intercourse and reaching orgasm of course.

    From someone who did nofap for around ~50 days (for removing whatever weird ***t i was watching), if you think about not fapping , that's all you will think about all the time and after failures after a certain time ,one starts to rationalize them. @DaveFoster , it would have been better if you might not have made a thread about it and simply kept it as a personal goal.

    I've been trying Nofap for the past 2.5 years. The longest I've been able to go without porn and masturbation has been around 57 days. I average about once a week these days as far as porn and masturbation goes.

    The first time I tried it, the first 2 weeks were the most exciting; I experienced pretty much all of the benefits people talk about: confidence, energy, better posture,thicker hair, etc. Then I hit the so-called flatline for about a month, and then my libido came raging back. Sadly, I didn't experience any of the benefits once my libido came back; only all encompassing horniness.

    Since then, it's been up and down with various streaks and relapses. I still haven't reached that initial high from the first attempt.

    As time has passed, with each streak and relapse, it becomes easier to abstain. I've gone from PMO every day to about once a week.

    I think everyone's situation is different because porn and masturbation are just two variables. Excessive PMO may cause the problem or it may be the symptom of the problem (whatever that problem may be).

    Ultimately, I think it's the excessive ejaculation (more than a particular body can handle) that leads to feelings of lethargy, apathy, depression, and emasculation. It's like being in a constant refractory period, but the porn is what overrides the natural satiety mechanism.

    But when I consider the declining testosterone levels in men, the xenoestrogens in our environment, the anti-masculine conditioning through media and public education, PMO becomes one piece of the puzzle.

    When I first did NoFap, I realized just how weak my libido and orgasms were. It wasn't until that initial high that I felt like a man, and that my heart was open to love. My perception of the world and of people was always through this tiny little hole that only focused on negativity. With that initial high, my perception widened; it was like seeing in full color with a wide angle lense. Suddenly, people didn't seem so scary, and I could read their emotions very well. I could tell a lot about someone just by looking at their posture or how they walked.

    Women were suddenly so exciting to be around. Where before my admiration of a woman's beauty was purely cerebral, now I could appreciate them holistically. Rather than fear or be intimidated by a woman's beauty, I could be relaxed, but excited at the same time by a woman.

    I learned that attraction is all in the eyes, and that it's about feeling rather thinking when you're in the moment with a woman. Something about excessive PMO or the resulting hormonal change must make less perceptive to social cues. Or maybe NoFap managed to punch through whatever was causing my inability to relate and connect with people.

    Unfortunately, the high wore off, and has yet to return to that initial level. I still experience benefits like increased confidence and optimism, but they come and go. I would say that with all the stuff I've tried on top of NoFap, my condition is improving and the good feelings are increasing while the bad feelings are decreasing.

    Taking stuff like Pansterone, Androsterone, Phenibut, and Tianeptine brings on similar feelings to varying degrees. I think Pansterone and Phenibut come closest to recreating those inital benefits. It seems like anything that increases libido and relaxes the body increases those benefits of confidence and wider perspective.

    One important thing I've learned since starting NoFap is that your body is just as important as your mind, if not more important. And when I say body, I mean the posture and tone of the tissues. If your posture is bad, our your tissues are tense and unresponsive, then it's going to affect your mindset. Energy and structure and interdependent at every level.

    For me personally, I've noticed that emotions and memories are held within the tension of my body. When I've released the tension in certain parts, emotions come up. I think it stands to reason that libido/sexual energy is generated in the lower half, mainly the groin and genitals. If there is tension in that area, then wouldn't it makes sense that it would affect your libido and ability to use your sexual organs as a guide? This is where I might lose you, but I think the genitals, along with the rest of your nervous system, but mostly your genitals, are like an antenna that detects a woman's arousal.

    I've had a few experiences where simply standing near a woman has caused an erection, but these women would not stand out in any particular way physically other than I would get this feeling that they were aroused. Yes they were pretty, but I've stood next many pretty women and most of the time, I don't experience anything like this. But that's just a kooky theory of mine; I just wanted to share that. I will say that as I release tension in my body, I notice that certain tissues experience a "surge of energy" when I'm around an attractive woman that seems to be interested in me. Again, kind of kooky, but maybe someone here has a similar experience.

    I could write more on this, but I'll stop; this is long enough.
