How does it work?
NoFap’s efficacy varies based on intentions and context; it can be helpful for those relying on porn for dopamine instead of true connection, hindering relationships or social interactions, but excessive porn exposure is often the issue, not occasional masturbation; abstaining from ejaculation may initially boost testosterone but then plateau; a weekly or biweekly sexual activity rhythm aligns with biological cycles; attaching self-worth to abstinence days can provide a sense of control, but some may develop problematic attitudes of superiority or dismissing companionship.

Key Insights

  • NoFap's efficacy depends on the individual's intentions and context.
  • NoFap can be useful for sedentary individuals who rely on pornography for dopamine hits rather than seeking companionship or higher quality of life.
  • NoFap might be beneficial for those whose porn addiction hinders their relationship quality or social interactions.
  • NoFap and NoPorn should be considered separately, as excessive pornography exposure is often the problem, rather than occasional fapping.
  • Going too long without ejaculation may lead to a spike in testosterone initially, followed by a plateau effect.
  • A weekly to fortnightly cadence of sexual activity could be advantageous based on biological rhythms.
  • Attaching self-worth to the number of days without fapping can give a sense of control and achievement.
  • Some individuals may develop problematic attitudes, feeling superior or not needing companionship due to their ability to abstain from sexual activity.

Talking about bro science, what are your thoughts on NoFap?

I think that it depends on why you’re doing it. Are you doing it because you’ve been told by some incel forum that this is what you have to do? Or are you doing it as a dopamine detox? What is the context? In general, what do I think about it? Yeah.

There are a lot of people who are sedentary and use pornography as an easy way to achieve a dopamine hit. It’s easier to sit at your computer and click a button than to go out and find a woman, go on a date, and put effort into a real relationship. It’s like the rat studies where they wire their brains to press the dopamine button repeatedly. Many men nowadays are wired similarly because of the easy access to pornography, which dissuades them from seeking companionship and a higher quality of life. For these people, NoFap could be useful because their biological urges are frustrated, motivating them to seek sexual activity.

After ejaculating, there is a feeling of apathy and complacency, making one less motivated to pursue relationships or improve their life. In situations where excessive pornography use affects the quality of relationships or social interaction, NoFap or NoPorn, or both, could be beneficial. However, NoFap and NoPorn should not always be conflated.

NoPorn has a branding problem, as NoFap sounds catchy. I don’t think that NoPorn has no place, as it may excite one’s sex life. It’s a matter of finding the right balance. Going too long without ejaculating may have some biological effects, such as a temporary spike in testosterone after a week of abstinence, followed by a plateau. There seems to be a natural rhythm that drives the body’s need for sexual activity. However, this doesn’t mean that one should strictly adhere to a once-a-week ejaculatory schedule. It’s more about understanding the biological processes involved.

Some individuals tie their self-worth to the number of days since their last ejaculation and feel a sense of achievement from resisting urges. However, this can lead to a problematic belief that they don’t need companionship or relationships. It’s important to find a balance and not let NoFap or NoPorn become unhealthy obsessions.

Overall, NoFap can be useful for some individuals, especially those who have had negative impacts on their relationships or quality of life due to pornography addiction or excessive masturbation. However, it’s essential to consider individual circumstances and not treat NoFap as a one-size-fits-all solution.
