Ever wondered if there are any actual benefits to not masturbating whenever you feel the need?

It seems like there probably are – and there’s somewhere you can go to talk about it. NoFap is an online community that advocates taking breaks from masturbation for extended periods of time.

According to Distractify, it was started back in 2011 by Alexander Rhodes. He was casually browsing Reddit when he stumbled across a study that read “When men don’t ejaculate for seven days their serum testosterone levels increase by 45.7 per cent.”

Thinking it seemed like bullshit, he decided to try it for himself. Which was a challenge, as he admits he used to masturbate up to ten times a day. Wow…

He told Upvoted:

I had heart palpitations from not masturbating. Any time I saw any piece of skin on a girl walking by, I felt like there might be a cardiac incident. It was extraordinarily challenging.

However, in the name of science, Rhodes stuck with it and noted some surprising changes…

He had more focus on his work. He was able to get more done in his day and stopped using masturbation sessions as a distraction from the tasks he always wanted to accomplish.

Unfortunately, he didn’t measure his testosterone levels but he says he felt like he was on to something.

So to test the theory, he created NoFap to allow fellow anti-masturbators to encourage each other and share their non-fapping success stories.

And it does seem there’s some actual science behind the benefits of abstinence – brain scans of compulsive masturbators revealed they have similar neural structures to other addicts.

Therefore, abstaining from masturbating has similar effects to giving up other addictive activities.

One other common thing no-fappers have noticed – and this could be a massive plus for loads of guys – is that they are getting more attention from women.

One Redditor commented: 

Is it pheromones? Our increase in testosterone? The fact that we’re improving our lives so people in general are more attracted to our ‘aura’? Or is it something else? Or is it a little of all the above?

With a lack of real scientific study into how less masturbation affects other areas of your life, it’s difficult to know for sure if these ‘benefits’ are accurate or not.

But there’s only one way to find out, guys…
