I concur...*Removes hand from "Delete Thread Button."*

If I do that...There will be a few hundred threads on this...

come on you guys, this thread is so funny, you have to leave it on. Its just goes to show you that the longest thread on the DJ forum is on masterbation and not on success stories, looks like some of us still have a long way to go lol

No way im reading all those posts, but I read one about acne.... whats the deal with that? Anyone breakout MORE while not masturbating?
Ive got a big acne problem, I usually try ti stop masturbating to PREVENT acne, never thought of it making it worse.

The belief with a lot of people is that when you masturbate your testosterone levels get really out of whack, increasing DHT which worsens acne for many people. But by not masturbating you keep more testosterone in you? Id like to hear more about this. Frankly, if i do it more than once a day at any time other than before bed I usually break out...

And if the only thing that is holding you back from being the best that you can be is your propensity to masturbate, you are a better man than I. I must be wasting my time trying to build a real estate empire, completing my PhD and becoming irresistible to women. If I only had to worry about not masturbating to become the best that I can be, my life would suddenly have purpose.

Any of you guys remember the Army's old catch phrase? What if they felt the same way as this guy? Think about it:

"Be, all that you can be (don't masturbate) in the Arrrrrrrrmy!" :p

Yep. Sad, isn't it. I was actually compelled to post in this thread just because it seemed to be one of the most active. I would have thought the most active would be about approaching or qualifying women. But nope, one of the most active threads is about self gratification. Well, I guess we should blame this on Bush too....

Whoops, my bad.... :p

11-09-2004, 06:37 PM
u guys still in or have u given in? I swear, with all this build up, if I get a 1 night stand, I'll shoot straight though the condom!

11-10-2004, 02:50 PM
I once didn't go for like 5 months, when I finally went I shot a hole through the shower curtains, really dangerous situation.

03-12-2005, 03:18 PM
Rite, I realy needed to get back into this as my testosterone is shockingly low!

I'm on day 8 now. I don't feel mega horny though. there feels like theres alot more life downstairs though. i feel alot more mentaly stronger to do this than before. i have been off weights for 2 weeks too tomoz when i start back, my testosterone will be crazy high!

Anyone else back in or is it just me?

03-12-2005, 07:48 PM
I'm going to withhold also. I've gone for 5 days so far....doesn't sound much but it's only the beginning.

I've recently resumed squats and deadlifts in the gym so hopefully my testosterone will surge.

03-12-2005, 09:14 PM
Well so far , as of this current day

Its about 3 days and counting.. I 'll try to remember and reply and let you all know the time !

03-13-2005, 12:01 PM
why would you guys want to stop masturbatin? i jerk off at least once a day, before going to bed, usually twice or thrice and my game is freakin' good when i do it.
i noticed that when i don't masturbate before sleeping, the morning after, at school, i usually get less glances and, in general, girls are far less attracted than usual. maybe they can smell your "desperateness" to fck

don't think i'm desperate, since i have sex with my girlfriend at least 3 times a week, usually more.

usually, if i have sex with my girlfriend, then i jerk off before sleeping, the day after i'm looked at as a god... dunno why, but it's so.

i think there's no point in stopping to masturbate, expecially if you work out

03-13-2005, 12:07 PM
It shows how disciplined you are.

there are lots of more useful ways to determine how disciplined you are... studyin, workin out, readin, learnin new languages, takin up a sport...

03-13-2005, 12:19 PM
12 Hours.

03-15-2005, 04:38 PM
9 days.

03-15-2005, 07:21 PM
Ok. I'm in just for the experiment, I want to see If I do actually feel any different or any benifits from it.

What exactly have u guys experinced?

The whole thing seems confusing and unconclusive,... some people are saying they are more horny / others aren't horny atall.... Some of you are saying woman seem more attracted to you than before then others saying it turns then off more.

So I'm gonna give it a try to see for myelf.

works out that *-) I'm at 11 hours already ... gonna try for 2 weeks at least

03-16-2005, 09:32 AM
lol, cracked after 20 hours. starting again now. ;)

03-16-2005, 03:22 PM
Just did 9 days, and failed today. I'm a pretty confident kid. I talk when I want to. I found that I was a little too confident. I would laugh a little more, I'd say stuff I shouldn't (childish things), and I'd pretty much act a little less DJ, and a little more childish. I did notice more girls checking me out.

So I assume if you're shy, try to quit, if you're naturally confident, try to hold back that extra confidence.

Good thread. I'm so horny right now. Maybe it's because it's been almost two weeks since a barrage of whacking. I've been working so hard, haven't had time to whack, just too tired to. Today, my off day, I'm HORNY and ANY girl clothed or not so clothed makes me think about breaking into her vagina, and just eatin, fingering it, and doing just whatever back and forth, side to side. I could just stay on it like a pup stuck to it's mother's tit.

03-23-2008, 12:16 AM
why did we just bring back a three year old thread?

day 7!! There is a voice in the back of my mind trying to tempt me into giving in. but it getts less frequent the more days elasped.

this is fun because its an AMAZING test of willpower. You are really resisting an addiction when you stop. Don't bs me, cuz it's an addiction when you can't stop when you try.

08-02-2009, 02:29 PM

08-21-2009, 06:37 AM
A little boring.

08-22-2009, 02:21 AM
If I'm having a good time and enjoying my life, it doesn't really matter if I jerk it or not...but if I'm miserable and bored i have to restrain myself from it 2-3 times a day.

I think the max I've gone so far is about 2 weeks

08-22-2009, 10:23 AM

I've been in kind of a dry spell lately since I've been focusing on studies and training and getting a little too little sleep and food. The result have been that I have been feeling beta and passive.

Five days ago I decided to stop masturbating and I will go entire may without doing it. Now I wonder if I should ever start again because the positive effects are mind boggling.

Among the things I've experienced:

- People give me a lot more attention and listen to what I say. They let me be the leader of the group, kind of comes with the territory of having some muscles as well but not as much as now.
- I seem to light up the room a lot more, people look at me (both men and women) when I walk past them.
- I do not procrastinate (much) when I need to do something.
- Confidence is way better I am way more social as well.
- Women attention is through the roof. Usually I get eyed but lately I have been ignoring it. Now I flirt with women who walks past me and stuff.
- I have a lot more energy than before and I seem to require less sleep. While I sleep I get the wierdest dreams. Lectures are flying past and I feel more invested in them than before. Usually i got tired in calculus classes because it was boring and now it is pretty interesting.
- It feels like my crotch/lower abdomen is going to explode, when I see women I **** them inside my head. I imagine the female studies in my courses moaning with my **** inside them. I want to **** them so much, pull their hair hear them scream my name... Pull their text books from their arms, push them onto a table and **** their brains out.
- I generally feel in a better mood, not as passive as usual. When I biked to the school I took in the sweet air, admired the nature and the splendor of the world. Sounds gay but it felt good.
- I feel a lot more manly than before and I no longer doubt my core beliefs about men should be men and women should be women which is the opposite of what is accepted in my country; Men should be feminised pussies and pussies should be butches.
- I dont back down from conflicts, this is a major thing in my country where everyone is pussies. I didn't back down much earlier either but now I don't even have to think about making a stand.

Holy ****, this is just awesome. It's been pretty grueling though since I used to masturbate quite a bit and day 1-2 were ok, 3-4 was the worst experience I've had, today it feels a lot better.

03-17-2011, 12:42 PM
ALright so imma new here and i just made a bet with my girlfriend for no masturabtion or sex or pleasure of any kind for one month and im on Day 2 now and my D!ck has nevver been more mad at me lol

This is something I put together a while ago. I know it's long, but I'd like to see if any of you agree with what I have to say.

I begin this account by saying this is not official research. What you are about to read is all personal experience and conclusions drawn by myself over the last 6 months. I am writing this in the hopes that others may find what I have to say useful. My ultimate goal is to find others who have drawn similar experiences as I have. With that in mind, I ask that you read the following information with an open mind.

Mas.tur.ba.tion /noun: "erotic stimulation of one's own genital organs commonly resulting in orgasm and achieved by manual or other bodily contact exclusive of sexual intercourse, by instrumental manipulation, occasionally by sexual fantasies, or by various combinations of these agencies." That can be simplified as, "jacking off." Many people masturbate with the intention of relieving stress, some because they don't have a partner, some because it's just fun. Whatever the reasons, Near all of us men have masturbated at some point in our lives. I'm not writing this to discuss your reasons for masturbating, the purpose of this essay is to examine the effect of masturbation, not the cause.

When a male ejaculates, something known as the refractory period follows. Chemicals and hormones are released into the brain directly following an orgasm. The male usually gets a strong, relaxed feeling. It's common to feel very fatigued at this stage as well, and many men can fall asleep immediately after ejaculation. All us guys out there know how great this can feel. However, this is only the short term effect of masturbation. What happens when it is done excessively? What if it's done barely at all?

Over the next few weeks, I organized periods to test different masturabtion schedules (stimulated by pornography). This personal study was divided into five basic shedules. Once or more a day, once every 2 days, once a week, once a month, and once in 3 months. The results of my studies follow:

In my own experience, testing masturbating in excessive amounts (once or more a day in a 2 week period) left me in a pretty exhausting state. In a physical sense, I often felt fatigued and just wanted to sit around or sleep all day. I lost interest in working out, and dreaded going to football practice everyday. After week two, I felt like I was even falling out of shape, and didn't feel aggressive in football. In a social sense, I felt a surprising drop in my self confidence. It seemed like I always felt irritable and stressed out. I felt very socially awkward as well, like I wasn't myself. I had little urges to go out of my way to engage with real girls. I also felt a mysterious feeling of guilt following me everywhere.

After that, I practiced a level of moderation in masturbation. I masturbated every 2 days(Mon, Thurs, Sun type schedule) Almost immediately, I felt a significant improvement in my energy and "manliness". I seemed to gain a small spike in self confidence. I just felt better about myself. I also noticed I had a lot more energy to get me through the day. I felt more like myself, and a lot of the mysterious guilt seemed to disappear. I still avoided working out, but at least in football, I started feeling better about playing again. With this trend of increased self confidence and phyical well being, I decided to take it even further.

For one week, I decided to quit masturbating alltogether no matter how difficult in order to see the results. Days one, two, and three were hell for me. I had a burning desire to masturbate, and it bothered me all day long. I felt like a wild animal, with my only goal to release sexual tension. Again, I felt stressed out and socially awkward. All I wanted to do was go back to my old routine, but I pressed on. As days 4, 5, and 6 came along, I felt a HUGE spike of testosterone. My self confidence skyrocketed out of nowhere, and I felt strong happiness, whether it be from the actual absitince or pride of self mastery I'm not sure. Along with this, I felt wide awake and energized throughout the day, so much so, that I started working out again, which seemed to boost my self esteem as well. Instead of that burning passion to look on a porn site, a more natural feeling took over to pursue real girls. Instead of staying home and sitting around masturbating, I started talking to girls from my classes. In football, I started playing aggressive out of nowhere, and for the first time in a while, it was fun. Day 7 validated these good results for me. After a varsity football game, I went to our high school homecoming, and my previous lack of self confidence and social awkwardness had completely vanished. I had a great time, and danced with girls which had seemed to intimidate me just weeks before.

What struck me was the previous week, while on my previous masturbation schedules, I had decided I didn't want to go to the homecoming dance because I was so anxious about dancing, and approaching girls. However, as my week of abstinence followed, and my self confidence(and testosterone) built, my entire mentality changed about it. I wanted to approach these girls, and I felt no anxiety in getting denied. That night, I ended up confidently asking 9 different girls to dance that night, and was not rejected once. I was completely blown away with the results, and at that moment, I decided to try a new, much more strict masturbation shedule.

But first, I masturbated on day 8 of that week, as a means to "reset" my body before going into the month long abstinence. It was by far, the most glorious and fufilling orgasm I have ever felt in my entire life. It was just simply incredible. Semen volume had dramatically increased, and the orgasm lasted an entire minute! Simply something worth the wait. But how would it be after an entire month?

I had serious doubts at this point. The previous week was incredibly difficult, but an entire month? Despite my doubts, I decided to give it a shot. As before, the first few days were complete hell, and days 5, 6, and 7, I gained the same spike in testosterone. On week two of my abstinence, I had gotten another huge spike in testosterone, and my energy had blown through the roof. It was simply just an incredible feeling. My self confidence seemed to be at its peak now. I just felt so good about myself! In football, I was an agressive beast, and felt so great after laying a huge hit on somebody. I started hanging out with a lot of girls that week, and social awkwardness wasn't even a concern in my mind. As week 3 came along, I felt almost exactly the same, only I noticed myself talking a little cockier. I went on a few dates, and I noticed a lot more girls were interested in me. The final week gave me some difficulty. With all of this energy and testosterone, I regained a huge urge to masturbate as a means to release some tension. I also had an acne breakout. But still, I pushed through the last week with the same self confidence and "cockiness."

I came to the conclusion that I liked that feeling of self confidence, and didn't mind the additional cockiness. With my social awkwardness completely gone and all these real girls to talk to, I started to notice my entire life was changing for the better, just because I stopped masturbating. Knowing this only made me feel better about myself. Then I thought, "If I feel this great now, what if I pushed myself to the extreme?" I prepared myself to make my biggest and final length of abstinence, an entire 3 months! First, I masturbated to "reset" my body again. Again, the most lengthy and glorious feeling I have ever felt. Truly worth the wait.

I started to see that my body acted exactly the same to abstinence. The first month was literally EXACTLY the same as my previous recordings. But then month two rolled along...I had lost ALL my desire to masturbate out of nowhere. That's right, ALL! I never got random erections, and I had an incredible amount of control over myself. I went to a dance with grinding, a form of dancing where the guy basically rubs his genitals all over the girls behind. I've been to these dances before, and could always control myself to avoid erection mid dance, but it was always INCREDIBLY challenging, and took 110% concentration. But now, it was too easy to control myself. At one point, I even felt like I COULDN'T achieve erection...it was honestly a little frightening....but for the sake of the study, I kept going on. As the final month rolled along, I felt like I was losing my masculitiy. I just felt so passive. I still had good self confidence and no social awkwardness, but I just didn't feel right. I rarely got erections that last month, and never had one wet dream.

All of my previous abstinence times seemsed to suggets that the longer I went, the better off I'd be. But I believe it was made clear that 3 months was just TOO LONG. It's a terrible feeling when you have absolutely no sexual desires on your mind. I felt like I wasn't a man. I finished that harsh 3 months, and officially ended it on the 90th day by masturbating. It took me much longer to achieve orgasm, and I even got a little pain in my groin afterwards. I just went too far.

07-18-2012, 03:47 PM
After reviewing these results, I asked a lot of questions. Why did excessive masturbating always leave me contantly tired? Why did my self confidence drop? Why did I have a much smaller desire to pursue girls? Why did I feel socially awkard? Where did that mysterious guilt come from? I ask you all to bear with me in these next paragraphs; these are explanations I have put together with my own experiences.

Why did regular masturbation always leave me tired?
I believe masturbation always left me tired because I did not leave enough recovery time between masturbating, and everyday was like one big "refractory period". When you really think about it, one ejaculation contains millions of independent sperm which all contain half the genetic code to build a brand new and unique human being. When producing something this complex and spectacular, one by one, in a regualr cycle, it's reasonable to assume this would take a lot of energy, which would explain the lack of energy I felt.

Why did I lose the desire to pursue girls?
I am confident I felt this because technically, I didn't even need real girls. By masturbating, I tricked my body into the mentality that I didn't need any real females because the ones on the computer screen were sufficient enough. The loss of self confidence surely was to blame here as well.

Why did my self confidence drop?
In this case, I believe it's because one thing led to another. Fatigue made me despise working out, and without exercise, my testosterone levels started to drop. This ultimately dulled down my masculinity, and voila! One case of low self confidence. This could also be because after looking at nothing but pixels on the internet, you feel like you are so far away from true human interaction.

Why so awkward?
Possibly due to the fact that social skills are lost after fufilling your pleasures alone for so long. It was almost as if I didn't know how to act around real girls. Masturbation, especially when stimulated by pornography, provides nothing but the sexual side of human interaction, not the social aspect. This being said, after abstaining masturbation with porn, it takes a little effort to get back on track socially.

What about the guilt?
It's very possible this was unique to myself only, and I don't expect you all to have similar results, but it was a guilt that was undoubtebly bothering me personally. In my case, I believe this was because I was taking the easy way out. Instead of going after real girls, I went to an insufficient substitute, and the guilt probably came from avoiding it.

These are the results as I see them. Based on what I have found, it seems as if a schedule as close to abstinence as posssible is the best, as long as you do not go past your limits. It all depends whether or not you like the "alpha male" feeling you get from abstinence. Personally, I am going to stick to a 1-2 times a month schedule in the hopes of getting the best results.

I encourage anybody reading this to leave their own experiences as well as your personal explanations for some of these questions. Thanks to all of those who made it this far!

Currently on my 17th day of no fap! Alot more energy, confidence and assertiveness. Downsides are that i find fatties, pigs and ugly chicks more attractive. I also get insane sexual urges and cravings, almost animalistic.

Currently craving a fap! Help me get through it!

Well haven't masterbated sense sunday, so this can be day 2 for me :)

I used to live with a Korean girl housemate.

She had a boyfriend living elsewhere (chump), and she would give me hand jobs frequently. I returned the favor usually but not as often.

first time happened on some holiday after a party she invited me to. we came back still abit drunk, i watched some porn and she watched as well. next thing i know i have my hand down her jeans gettin my fingers wet.

Only nailed her once, it kinda sucked because she was dedicated to the relationship with her boyfriend and didnt want to cheat. She was really into the sex and i remember her saying something like "my boyfriend doesnt fill me up like this". after that she didnt talk for a week and barely made eye contact.

she got over it after that.

over the months she wanted 'practice' with dry humping and stuff so we showed each other different positions with clothes on. sometimes i had just my boxers on so it was kinda funny i had wood and just stabbing her with it.

she was still fine with hand jobs and we went down on each other a few more times, but no more sex.

as far as i know shes still with her boyfriend, havent heard from her in two years.

so does female housemate giving hand job count as masturbating?

10-23-2012, 09:08 AM
I am on day 9 now. A girl I went on a date with started wanking me off yesterday for few minutes but it was only a little pre *** that came out so technically I am still on 9 days without masturbating/no orgasm.

I have noticed that girls do seem to be looking at me more and speaking to me more from around day 6 onwards. Even a couple of guys started chatting to me at the bar and bought me a drink before saying I seemed like a cool guy to chat to. I also feel I have a lot more energy for exercise and I don't need as much sleep.

Lets see how many days I can last.
