    Anon, in all honestly, I suspect it's nonsense.
    Every other system in our bodies follows a use-it-or-lose-it conservation scheme. Refusing to lift anything anymore will not make your arms stronger. Refusing to solve math problem will not make your mind sharper.
    Also, how would our bodies know the difference between masturbation and actual sex? Are we supposed to assume that men who make love to their wives every day are less masculine as a result than ones who can't attract a mate?

      Thats what i was thinking, though could it be that being horned up all the time conditions you to be even hornier and that not getting that gratification puts your body in "attract mate mode" and gives you additional testosterone to compete against other males?
      The nofappers said something about oxycotin coming only from sex and not masturbation.

      Males of most species can go without copulation for years. It does not atrophy the gonads.

      If you're an actual scientist you see the harm of both sex and masturbation. I for instance get little done if I am jerking off a few times a day and the mind is prone to distraction, sexual arousal, fatigue afterwards. The same applies to sex. There isn't anything gained from it. Simply the illusion of pleasure and one that is unsanitary. Being around a woman you've had sex with leads to erections. Erections mean hypofrontality and thinking about le sex.

      Quite frankly, you're an idiot evidenced by how you write. You've reasoned poorly with simpleton analogizing. You view the body as a judge and view the mind like Decartes. And yes, men who make love to their wives daily are content to be dogs pleased with waging and getting nothing of importance done at home other than menial chores and distractions.

        I'm pretty sure that nearly all mammalian species jerk off in one form or another.
        So do you have a source to back your highly suspect claim, or are you just assuming every male creature is as big a loser as you are?

      If you know you're jerking off and not having sex, your body knows it too, as your brain is part of your body.

      Nobody claims that the penis itself can understand what action it's participating in, even though you could even make that argument.

    multiline posting attention seeker, what do you think moron? do you think depleting yourself of the precious fluid it is a good idea? do you know what the refractory period is? are you so dense that you don't feel the fatigue set in right after? do you think draining yourself of blood is a good idea? have you never tested nofap to see the benefits for yourself? how you can reach such a question to begin with is mind boggling

    If you're doing it compulsively or habitually then yeah stopping is a good thing.
    You're also likely to be consuming massive amounts of porn which is pretty harmful to the male brain.
    This accounts for a huge amount of males, so yeah I'd say there are benefits.
    What you're asking is no different from asking if there is any scientific evidence that quitting cocaine is a good thing.

      >What you're asking is no different from asking if there is any scientific evidence that quitting cocaine is a good thing.

      There isn't. Cocaine is stimulant and a weak one at that. It has a short half life and would provide wakefulness and prefrontal stimulation (exactly what is needed to avoid the mind being wasted on distractions that make le pee pee big). Most scientists from the 1880s to the 1920s were using it in low doses until other stimulants came along.

      The only scientific reason not to use it is the cardiotoxicity and the difficulty in legal use through virtually any doctor refusing to rx it.

      People addicted to it are really instead addicted to underlying behavioral maladapation while on the drug or have a preexisting mental deformity such as low IQ bringing impulse control (to which the stimulant may be treating). The former is to say they're not addicted to cocaine but rather addicted to drinking alcohol or fricking to which was paired with the drug and heightens these experiences for them.

          Dopamine transmission in the prefrontal cortex strongly aids executive functioning, which is precisely what is needed to resist porn. Keep thinking dopamine is bad moron.

    Fapping itself isn't harmful. If you have mutual masturbation or a handjob with a sexual partner, do you think it magically harms your brain or body? Like, your dick can tell a hand is touching it instead of a vegana and it sends self-destruct signals to your brain?
    The harm can come from stuff associated with fapping. Do you grip too hard to the point of desensitizing yourself? Do you try to orgasm quickly because you live with your parents and you are trying to hide the act? Do you edge too long to the point of getting hemorrhoids (yes, it can happen, an intense boner for too long puts pressure on your anus)? Do your wrist starts to hurt because of an awkward angle you got used to? Do you need video pornography to get an erection? As a result of porn, did your brain get wired in such a way that you are aroused by irregular or impractical sex related acts (sugarcoated with the word "fetish")? Did porn "raise your standards" too high to the point of not feeling attraction to the average breeding age female? Does your fapping completely inhibit your desire to find a sexual partner?
    Stop seeing everything in black and white. It isn't even a matter of shades of gray. Learn to separate issues instead of lumping unrelated stuff together.

      All sexual activity, arousal and losses harm the male body. Just because it's a key aspect of human behavior doesn't make it immune to incurring a biological cost. All sexual arousal makes the totality of the brain go hypofrontal (aooooogaaah) to focus on le sex. Then once complete you have a release of various cytokines and prostaglandins that induce an inflammatory response. People think they can magically have their cake and eat it too.

    The similarity with junk food should be obvious: you're not getting real nourishment so you're not getting real satisfaction. This leads to a cycle of falsehood replacing the real. This adds to our suffering. Reality is acknowledging that a man needs a woman. Instead, for more than a decade now social media have been dominated by angry middle aged men manipulating younger men into thinking all women are evil and the juice ain't worth the squeeze. That ideology has obviously failed because these men have never stopped paying attention to women. That makes them the ultimate cucks: forever standing on the sidelines commenting on what's happening but never being part of the happening like journalists wishing they were the football players on the field. Men have ruined more men than women.

    I firsthand know that there is benefit to NOT gooning. Do not edge. This shit gives you prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain. Do not jerk off multiple times a day, do try to jerk off every 2 days since that is more pleasurable. But if you have started, finish it through.

    Also don't hold your urine. If you are in a car, stop wherever the frick you are and take a piss on whatever needed. Don't frick with pelvic sensitivity. This is there to save your life. If you ignore it and damage it, it will alert you to piss every single second, 24/7 for months or years.

    I did 1 year nofap and didn't see any benefit. In contrast I was very horny and I was having wet dreams once per week. It is definitely better than being a coomer but conpared to an average once per week guy there's no benefit.
