Sometimes I have the feeling that not watching porn and not masturbating is sold as the magic bullet for everlasting happiness, a healthy body and a powerful mind. The results of this competition are countless of experience reports in which regular guys describe all the benefits they experienced during the 30 or 90 days they went without masturbation.

Chastity is not a foreign concept to me. More than once I've been in a relationship where, because I and the other person were heavily into starving ourselves of sex for sexual reasons, abstinence was enforced. The longest I went was about three weeks, meaning no sex and no masturbation—and therefore no orgasms—for 21 days. It turned my life around; I got work done, I kept my house clean, I finished off personal projects that procrastination had always forbid me from finishing. I realized that a self-enforced period of blue balls can actually be a lot better for the mind, body, and soul than I'd first assumed. However, it does need to be mentioned that having a DMC with your own junk every once in a while is a very healthy thing to do, encouraged by actual professors. Plus, it does our sex lives the world of good to learn our sexual rhythms.

So what actually are the benefits, and what happens when guys follow through and lay off the dolphin-flogging for a prolonged period of time? The nofap literature suggests a scientifically proven basis to cutting out masturbation despite most medical evidence finding, on balance, either no benefit to cutting masturbation or actually health benefits to masturbation.
Masturbation has been shown to relax muscles, help you fall asleep, release endorphins, reduce stress and helps people to understand their own sexual responses. So why would someone choose to abstain from deez nuts for an extended period of time? But there are certain ideas surrounding particularly men's self-restraint, that persist in earnest.
