@hazelwhispers, Nope. Not me, just seeing what happens when you stop jacking off, which we ALL do. Porn is another story, which isn’t productive in itself

@hazelwhispers,

How is this even a question?

1. Self control, most important skill in life

2. Energy conservation, saving one of your two most precious resources in life

3. Stop wasting time (the other one of the two most precious resources) on something completely useless.

4. Get your body’s reward system back to proper working order, this ties in with the first point but it deserves its own. Most people are like little stimulation bunnies, just going back and forth between different forms of stimulation, never doing anything worthwhile. Addicted to a myriad of things, getting lured back and forth by people flashing different forms of stimulation, pulling their strings.

5. HEALTH! Physical and mental.

6. Libido and instinct. If you stop tricking your reptile brain into thinking it’s done its thang, you’ll be propelled into action, the way it’s supposed to be. You’ll have a much easier time with the opposite sex, and with social situations in general, because you’ll have that natural hormone-pumped buzz that’s really just the natural state of being.

7. Not being a fucking wanker.

@hazelwhispers, Well, it was already explained on the website Lee suggested you to take a look at a few posts up but I’m glad you’ve got it now.

Also, I might sign up just for the journey there. It will be interesting to see just how “challenging ” this will end up being.

I started masturbating at very early age (can’t remember, 18 yo now), so I never had a wet dream in my life. I would like to give this challenge a go, but I have a quick question first. If I stop masturbating, will I have wet dream (not looking forward to having them).

Also I know this will sound weird, but I don’t want to have sex really. I have 0 desire to have sex. I only masturbate, because I feel like I really need to and it’s a quick and easy solution. But I’m ready to change that and learn some self control.

So, not masturbating and no sex = what?

@hazelwhispers, I expressed myself poorly, no offense intended.

@posiljevalka, You won’t necessarily have wet dreams. I haven’t masturbated in years, and I never have wet dreams, last time I had one was years ago.

Of course you can go without both masturbation and sex… ever heard of monks? Or yknow, everyone before the 80s?

If you feel that need, that means you’re ADDICTED. All the more reason to take this challenge.

@manimal, Do you ever get horny? Whenever I get horny, I either masturbate or have sex or both. Lol, a life without sex! Seems so strange to me but I can respect it. Life is about freedom and choices and the freedom to NOT do those things is exercising a right and that’s beauty in itself so…let me congratulate you, man.

@hazelwhispers, Nah I don’t really get horny. I used to be a major horndog though, total sex addict.
It’s a matter of self control, which is very important to me, and I’ve gotten really good at it in general.

I do have sex though, I love sex, and I gotta keep my girl satisfied haha. But I don’t ejaculate.

So far I’ve done this challenge for a week and its been a lot easier than I thought. I haven’t had one strong urge to masturbate and I don’t really like porn in general so that was super easy to just give up in general.

@manimal, Sex without ejaculation is pretty interesting. I haven’t masturbated in a long time now (Too long to count) but I have had plenty of sex. I have never really thought about actually retaining semen though.

@luigiblue, Do it. It’s fucking awesome.

The conserved energy and testosterone amplify that “fuck yeah” feeling 10x. Seriously.
And no more rolling of and falling asleep or anything like that, you can fuck your girl forever, and you’ll still have that energy and presence left to give her that little extra afterwards to come full circle and make it more than physical.

And nothing beats that look in a girl’s eyes when she’s all “What you can still keep going? And no sticky mess? No need for protection?”
And not having to change sheets so damn often of course.

The “spiritual” aspect is amazing too. More “male jing,” more focus, and less “energy leaks.”

And I can only speak for myself, but my health skyrocketed when I got into chrism retention.

@manimal, When I first started the no porn challenge I abstained from sex as well. I went 3 months without both and I agree, I felt amazing. As for semen retention though, I wouldn’t know where to start…I mean I’ve detached myself from porn and the quick dopamine rush that makes most guys ejaculate really fast so I can go for a while but eventually I just want to explode and orgasm. Any tips on semen retention whilst orgasming? I am willing to give it a try….New challenge right there. haha

@luigiblue, Most important and basic thing: BREATHING. Keep your breathing deep and slow.

The second thing is awareness. Pay attention, get into an almost meditative state.
Notice how the pleasure comes and goes like waves? The accumulation of these is what eventually causes the sudden urge. Gotta learn to ride the waves.
When one of these waves hits, take a deeeep breath and draw the tension away.
If you’re doing it right, you’ll get the chills, and after a while you’ll get this body buzz. If you get the chills but not the buzz, you’re too tense.

This will keep the buildup at bay, and it’s also the way to practice the technique you need to master retention.
It’s easy once you get the hang of it. It’s kind off like surfing or aikido, gotta work with the momentum.

There are a few different methods to achieve “dry” orgasms, but I find the easiest way is brute force. Just strengthen your pc muscle, abs, thighs, and lower back. And when you reach the point of no return, you just clench them all as hard as you can. While holding your breath.

Once you get good at holding back like this, start trying to draw the tension. If you do it right, you’ll feel a sort of burning/electric surge up your spine followed by a feeling of total bliss and awesomeness and arousal.

The girls love it.

@manimal, This all makes sense to me. I noticed when I smoke marijuana and am in a meditative state during sex, I am easily able to ride the waves. I have even been able to retain a few times where I would fucking shiver, but that’s rare and only when I was high. When I am sober I’m good for a while but then I want to explode. I don’t like relying on weed to retain my semen so I’ll try to train myself to retain sober. Thanks

TWO WEEKS WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
I’ve come to realize that all masturbating was for me was a way to cure boredom. I do get horny sometimes, but not near as often.
Also I had my 2nd wet dream ever…. I didn’t count it as jacking off, as I don’t remember it. And i’m not even 100% sure it happened, it was a really strange night.

Looking back I honestly used to be completely addicted to porn back in my earlier teen years. Now I masturbate just to ease the tension every week or so. I pretty much gave up porn, but after reading through some of the posts here I’m very curious to see what happens when I stop masturbation completely. Taking up this challenge.

@manimal, Thanks for the tip. I’ll stick to my plan until the month is over, and then try out your way. Don’t you think it would be best to only do it every other day, though, so the muscle can recover and get stronger?

@vasco, Exercising it takes only a few minutes, it’s got the whole rest of the day to recover.
Works for me. Try and see if it works for you.

@manimal, Jumped into this discussion b/c I saw your logo.
I thought I had been there done this, but not ejaculating while having sex is completely new to me. I have gone long stints without masturbating, thus have learned lessons about lust, boredom, energy etc. But now that I am married I look forward to having sex and thought that sex or masterbating every few days would always be the way it would proceed.

Another writer spoke about being able to go really long while being high. I have experienced this as well and of course while being drunk. I have also done a little bit of practice with breathing while having sex so I can last until my partner is ready to orgasm.

But this idea of not having a traditional ejaculation orgasm is intriguing to me.
I googled “chrism retention” but did not find anything. I will check out a couple of the websites list but can you direct me to a muscle/mind training program?

@possiblehubris, I guess the term “chrism” isn’t very popular these days. Try searching for semen retention. Every decent source of tantric knowledge could teach you semen retention. It’s not rocket science, it just takes consistent effort.

For mind training, just meditate and focus.
For muscle training, just do kegels. Try the routine I posted on the previous page. Might also wanna try jelqing, because it helps to endure longer.
