My personal view on masturbation and what it does to guys who don’t understand it.

Notes before we begin: I’m certainly no monotheistic nut who is trying to  preach anything here. Masturbation is a huge part of a young guys life (you just can’t ignore that fact) and therefore managing this is important. Abstaining from masturbation completely between the years of 15-23 is NOT recommended.

 

The online pRon industry generates billions of impressions all over the world DAILY (source:exoclick). Really rough here but their are 7 billion people in the world, call it 3.5 billion guys worldwide, not all who have internet access, remove the large number representing asia (india, china etc)  remove too old and too young and you get a statistic that suggest most guys are fapping daily or at least weekly to some kind of pron.

That’s ALOT of dudes in front of screens and NOT in front of girls. The question is – is this (masturbation) a necessary evil or can we improve on this repetitive ROUTINE task that inevitably has diminishing returns. Not only that but it has the tendency to isolate you from women, rob you of vital energy and motivation and ensures that you DONT get the real loving connection you want.

Is masturbation addictive? I think it can have an addictive quality yes.

Can we do better? Of course – but are you willing to practice a little (or a LOT) of restraint?

What’s the point? – Apart from obvious increases in health energy vitality etc: Heavily reducing your masturbation or ejaculation frequency will answer the question of (I need sex, I need to get laid, I have not been laid for months, I’m still a virgin)

If you have a small to medium sized goal I suggest that you try the personal experiment of not masturbating until you have achieved this goal. Your goal could be to lose x number of pounds, get laid next weekend, make x amount of sales etc

 

Masturbation is FUN – but when it starts to affect your relationships with the people you love or could love (meaning you never meet them because your fatigued) or it starts to affect your love life there is something seriously wrong. Try this thought experiment and let me know how you FEEL after one two three weeks off… Can you last that long?
