I thought I'd start this to see who would be interested. November is only a couple of days away so I wanted to see who would be interested. Not sure for how long I can edit this thread to add in everyone interested in taking part. Let's see who can last all of November without fapping, sex is obviously okay since all of you should pull.

Maybe towards the end of it we can share results and how we felt.

I’m not going to enter this yet but later in the month I might partake. Getting ready to go stay with my mother for several weeks without the wife. I won’t be doing any faping at my moms place. That’s just disgusting. :rofl:

Maybe I'm in the minority here but I'll never understand the popularity of practicing abstinence on a forum about picking up women...

The irony is just...I don't know man...

EDIT: I guess no-fap doesn't imply no-sex. In which case sure, go ahead. Personally, I'd rather not be out of practice so when I do bed a broad I last longer than 5 minutes.

Also, by extension, I think "No Nut November" is absolutely stupid.

I think of it more as discipline than abstinence. In fact, the trait I have seen in a lot of the best players I have known has been discipline. Discipline to not get too in their emotions, not engage in bad habits (eating tons of junk food which leads to being out of shape), and following the process properly when it comes to game itself (leading, logistics, etc.).

Yeah it's retarded, fapping is not the issue, porn is the issue. Internet porn literally causes identical changes in the brain to hardcore drug abuse (I can link to the studies). However, not-fapping is probably not good for you, the whole "semen retention" thing is broscience hype.

The fact that most "nofap" movements make no mention of porn tells me that most people don't understands what they're talking about.

It's like saying you're going to go on a caloric restriction diet or OMAD for a month, but still eat processed junk for every meal.

That said if you can give up porn for 3+ months and consistently decrease your overall usage over the years, you will see tangible benefits, but 99.99% of men cannot give up porn for any meaningful amount of time. The other issue is that many people just replace porn with other vices such as youtube, social media, or maladaptive internet use in general.

Back in the day, we'd rag on each other for jerking off, for the sole reason that it was unproductive. That's it. No other reason.

Can't help but think that if the benefits are so great it would've been common knowledge for some time now...
