Sometimes I have the feeling that not watching porn and not masturbating is sold as the magic bullet for everlasting happiness, a healthy body and a powerful mind. The more I read about the NoFap movement, the more I feel that this whole thing has developed into a cult where its members benchmark themselves against each other.

The results of this competition are countless of experience reports in which regular guys describe all the benefits they experienced during the 30 or 90 days they went without masturbation. Those experience reports contain everything from feeling more at peace with yourself (which is a realistic goal), to absolute enlightenment and indescribable feelings, which might be a bit exaggerated.

Due to the fact that I am not a big fan of hypes and people who try to sell you the idea that one lifestyle change can turn your life around, I had to test this phenomenon for myself. I regard self-improvement as a holistic concept and I wanted to find out if abstaining from masturbation really had such a huge impact on my life and my wellbeing.

All I wanted was to find out if the hype was true and if the enthusiasm was justified. So I did what every scientist does when he wants to find out if something is true or not. I tested the concept of not masturbating.

The first few days were hard. I constantly thought about sex and I couldn’t concentrate for more than a couple of seconds. Seriously, my attention span was way worse than the attention span of a goldfish with learning difficulties.

Even though a lot of other guys wrote about how their productivity increased once they gave up masturbation. My productivity went down the tubes.

However, even though the first few days of my 30 day challenge were hard and even though I didn’t experience the increase in concentration and productivity that others experienced, there were quite a few benefits that this challenge led to.

How-to-Quit-Porn-Logo-2

1. You are More Awake in the Morning

Have you ever tried to fall asleep with a rock-hard erection?

Yes, it is as uncomfortable as it sounds. Falling asleep with an erection can be quite difficult, especially when you can only sleep on your belly. At the end of the fifth day I was actually afraid that I would break my penis during sleep.

What a scary thought.

Even though falling asleep was hard and it sometimes took me over two hours to find the right position and to finally not think about tits and asses, I continued with my experiment.

The astonishing thing I found out was that I had problems to fall asleep, but absolutely no problems to wake up. It was really weird. I slept less than before but I felt more energetic when I woke up in the morning.

Later on I found out that there are actually studies that show that not masturbating increases your testosterone and that this increase in testosterone leads to a better sleep and more energy in the morning.

2. Your Sex Life Gets Better

I had sex four times during my 30 day challenge and let me tell you something:

The sex was amazing!

Honestly, I can’t remember the last time before this no fap challenge that I had such intense orgasms and that I was so rock-hard. The lady I shared a bed and a lot of body fluids with was totally fascinated by my ability to bang her without getting limp.

I was actually scared that I would come after a couple of seconds, but as it turned out my fears were completely arbitrary. During the first round I lasted about 20 minutes and during the second round about 30 minutes. I was really fascinated by this.

Before I stopped masturbating I had the problem that I couldn’t get hard without a blowjob or at least a really good handjob. Now that I was abstinent, looking at the naked body of a beautiful woman was enough to transform my friend in a deadly spear.

3. You Have More Time 

Watching porn and masturbating to it eats a lot of time, but even when you don’t watch any porn at all, making love to yourself can be quite time intensive. In fact, masturbating without watching porn can be even more time intensive than with porn.

When you watch a porn movie you can usually shoot within five minutes, but when you are used to the combination of porn and masturbation it can take quite a while to get in the mood without any explicit images and videos.

I didn’t clock the time but I assume that one masturbation session can easily last up to 20 minutes. If you do that twice a day you have spent about 40 minutes that you will never get back.

Thanks to my challenge I suddenly had an extra 40 minutes a day that I could use for other things than playing with my dick. It might not sound a lot, but when you think about the fact that you are only awake for about 16 hours every day, those 40 minutes can make a difference.

4. You Become More Attractive to Women  

I don’t really know why but with every day I abstained from masturbation I had the feeling that I became more and more attractive to women. Maybe it was because of my increased focus, maybe because of my increased testosterone level or maybe because I finally became aware of my environment and the people in it.

I don’t know what it was but it was fantastic. I walked through the streets and women were looking at me. Some women were even smiling at me. I really can’t complain about this benefit. It seemed as if women magically sense if a guy spends his time masturbating or if he has the necessary self-control and willpower to not masturbate.

5. You Become More Social

I think I don’t tell you anything new when I say that an orgasm is a pleasurable experience and that it can make you happy, at least during the time you experience it. When you masturbate a lot your body releases endorphins whenever you ejaculate.

So far so good, but due to the fact that you experience an endorphin rush whenever you masturbate, your motivation to experience other not so exciting things, such as sitting in a bar and talking to people, goes out of the window.

One interesting realization I had was that not masturbating made me want to go out. For the first time of my life I had the burning desire to be social. Everybody who knows me well can confirm that this is really weird.

I am a natural introvert and I rather spend all my time writing and reading than going out and talking to a group of people. However, during the time I abstained from masturbation I had the impulse to go out and to meet people. I guess it was because I needed a substitute that provided me with enough endorphins to not hang myself. It seems as if it is true that human beings are social being, even I.

6. You Become More Aware of Your Body

I already practiced meditation before my challenge. That’s why I can confidently say that I am more aware of my body than the majority of blind and ignorant people that wander on this earth.

But just because I am already good at this whole mindfulness and being aware thing doesn’t mean that I can’t improve it. And that’s exactly what abstaining from masturbation did for me.

I not only thought about tits and asses 24/7, I also became more aware of my own body parts. I suddenly felt every single one of my toes when I walked and I was aware of every single one of my fingers when I typed on my laptop.

At some point I actually thought that I could feel how my hair is growing. It was kind of creepy, but not masturbating helped me to become more aware of my body and its desires than I have ever been before.

7. You Become More Creative

I would say that I am a very creative person. If I wasn’t creative I would probably work as an accountant in some big corporation and not as a writer and blogger.

The great thing about not masturbating is that it has the power to increase your creativity. I can’t even list all the crazy ideas that I wrote down during the thirty days I didn’t touch my penis. It was like a firework of great ideas.

8. You Can Use Your Energy to Build Your Dream Body  

One year ago I had a really amazing body. If I didn’t have scars all over my body, you could have put me on the cover of a fitness magazine. Then I changed my diet, I worked a lot and instead of going to the gym three times a week I only went once a week.

I lost a lost nearly all the muscles that I had worked for so hard. Thanks to not masturbating I had so much energy that I had to release somewhere. I then decided that taking all this energy to the gym is probably the best idea. As it turned out, I was right.

I gained a lot of muscle, I feel healthier than ever before and I even kept this habit after my challenge. So yeah, not masturbating can lead to a lot of additional energy that you can use to work on your dream body.

9. Your Erectile Dysfunction Will Go Away

I already told you that your sex life will get better when you don’t masturbate, but have I also told you that your sexual dysfunction, in case you have this problem, will get better?

Yes, it will.

It is no secret that porn is a major cause for erectile dysfunction in young men. While not watching porn cured my erectile dysfunction to about 80%, abstaining from masturbation led to the final 20% that were necessary to get that rock-hard erection that girls can’t get enough of.

If you struggle with erectile dysfunction and you have already overcome your porn addiction, but you still have a limp dick from time to time, you absolutely have to stop masturbating for at least a few weeks. This will allow you to fully recover.

10. Your Social Anxiety Will Go Away

The combination of getting those sexy looks from the girls I walked past and all the time that I spent socializing led to another awesome benefit of not masturbating. When I did this experiment I still had a bit of social anxiety. Not much, but enough to make me feel uncomfortable standing in a group of more than three people.

During the time I didn’t masturbate this uncomfortable feeling turned into a feeling of excitement and pleasant anticipation whenever I was about to start a conversation with a group of people.

This positive feeling was very unfamiliar but I enjoyed my new outgoing self. The fact that you will have less social anxiety will increase the likelihood that you will talk to many amazing women who are girlfriend material. This can eventually lead to a very happy relationship.

11. You Are Proud of What You Have Achieved

The last benefit that I want to share with you is the feeling of pride that you will experience once the challenge is over. After the first sleepless night I actually didn’t think that I would be able to go 30 days without masturbation, but I did it.

Even though I decided to continue to masturbate regularly (I have an extremely high sex drive and I couldn’t concentrate on anything during this experiment) it was a challenge that I recommend you to do.

Maybe you will experience the same benefits that I experienced. Maybe you will have the enlightenment that so many guys talk about on the internet. No matter, if abstaining from masturbation is the right thing for you or not, accepting this challenge will teach you a lot about yourself.

In Conclusion

Not masturbating for 30 days is not the easiest thing to do, but it has definitely some benefits. A better sex life and more time are not the only benefits that you will experience. You will probably be more awake in the morning, more attractive to women and more social.

In addition to that, you will become more aware of your body, you will become the most creative person you have ever been and now that you have stopped training your dick you have finally time to train the rest of your body.

The fact that you are more social and that you are now more attractive to the opposite sex automatically leads to less social anxiety. The feeling of pride that you will experience as soon as you have accomplished this challenge is indescribable.
