Out of curiosity, what’s wrong with masturbation?
Is this to practice self control?
My friend said he’s in by the ways.

I never would have thought that this would come to fruition when manimal and myself were defending our stances earlier, nor did I think so many would jump on board when I typed the challenge jokingly in all caps in the masterbation thread.

Bear this in mind:

This world is comprised at current of largely analytical and right-brained mantras that shake the very bedrock of ability and true potential.

When you are tempted to wank, and you will be undoubtedly, don’t give in. Instead offer yourself a sacrament of a walk, meditation, reading, a documentary, something that will give you an eventual gain as oppossed to the loss. The tribute to betterment will make your path more righteous, and will give you the power to examine everything you do for yourself at face value.

“Out of curiosity, what’s wrong with masturbation?”

Replace masturbation with “watching TV”, “eating meat”, “losing your temper” etc. It’s an ingrained social condition that “everyone does”, but abstaining from it usually yields alot of benefit – eg more sexual energy, sensuality and self discipline which can be redirected consciously into your life, instead of over your chest.

@ Erika I’m in for the practicing of self control. I don’t believe that masturbation is bad, I believe that too much of it is bad, yes, but I also believe that too little of it is bad as well. Semen is a bodily fluid, and it is meant to flow. Having it sit in your balls until it dies and begins to fester is never good. Gotta keep the flow going.

Sudden analogy… Masturbating is a waste of semen, and a death of potential human life? What about a girl menstrating? (As far as I know) girls drop and egg once a month, because the body gets ready to have a baby, then after the month says “Whelp, guess no baby this month, don’t need this egg anymore” and then she has her period! Sure, it’s a waste of energy and resources, it must take a lot to produce and prepare an egg for fertilization. But the body still gets rid of it, because imagine if it was just stuck in there forever…. What if you actually did want to get pregnant? Would you want a nasty old egg thats been there for ages, or a fresh new one each month? If you retain your semen, and it all dies in your balls, then how could you ever hope to get someone pregnant (to all those who say that sex/ejaculation should only be used for reproduction.

Flow is good, keep it flowing, keep it alive.

“‘If you retain your semen, and it all dies in your balls,’

is this biologically provable? =)”

We could cut them open and find out xD I don’t know if it’s provable, but it makes sense….

And I mean that ejaculation makes room for new semen to grow, Out with the old, in with the new!

nicely done Josh and Manimal!! This challenge is a stroke of genius. I’m happily married so it’ll be smooth sailing, but I’ll still come along for the ride. 15 or 20 years ago it would have been much harder for me if this had popped up somewhere, but I’ve got a good head on my shoulders and a better grip on my self-control than I did back then.

Oh hell no…not at this point. It’s good to do though–in 2007 I did it for 40 days, no sex either… I was in Mexico after the last day & banged some German dude immediately that didn’t speak so gooda English, wasted no time :) Good luck to you all!!

This reminds me of an earlier post, can’t remember which though so I guess I’ll post it here:

@Manimal you said in this other thread that masturbation shortens a man’s life, and that it is possible to have sex without ejaculation. Just wondering why/how either of these things are true?

Sure, I’m in.

“i would point out that girls do not have a choice in the matter, whereas, with masturbating……”

-“A trained man is hundred percent reliable. Woman can also control conception. It is made possible by exercises that give control over the process of ovulation. If she doesn’t want pregnancy, the woman can prevent the unnecessary creation of the ovum. The woman can according to her wish postpone the ovulation until the time she wants to conceive. In this way enormous energy is being saved. Complete mastery over this method requires a longer period of time. When the women has once gained control over ovulation, this contraceptive method is completely reliable. Such an approach to one’s own physiology can in the beginning be foreign to many women. We are used to think that regular ovulation and menstruation are a sign of good health. Willing interference in such processes can appear risky. But when a woman has once started practising this method and has experienced how much she feels better, and when she has gained an insight into the benefits of these exercise, she gradually gets used to the idea that she can by wish regulate the processes of ovulation and menstruation.”

@SkaFish Ejaculation uses up a LOT of energy and nutrients, and releases prolactin and norepinephrine (noradrenaline.) It’s a huge waste of energy and nutrients, prolactin makes you tired, weak and speeds up aging, norepinephrine fucks with your mood and is slightly toxic. It also uses up a lot of dopamine. These are the main aspects of ejaculation that make your life shorter. (I could also bring up eastern theories about leaking chakras and such, but I’d rather not.)

It is fully possible to have sex and cum without ejaculating. It’s actually quite easy, and there are lots of books and web articles about it, it’s been around for thousands of years and practiced by many of the world’s greatest men. If you want to learn it, I recommend Mantak Chia’s books “Taoist secrets of love” and “The multi-orgasmic man.” You could also check out a video called “Maxwell’s multiple climax” (it’s more suitable for Americans and also quite funny, but the technique is inferior to the traditional one.) Many books on tantra teach this stuff.

The main things you need to do is strengthen your pc muscle (and preferably your abs and glutes as well) and learn to breathe properly. Slow, deep breathing keeps your body “cool” and lets the blood and pressure circulate properly so it doesn’t build up in your crotch. And the feeling is awesome, it feels like every cell is tingling with desire. Almost from start to finish.

Most people don’t even know what good sex REALLY feels like.

@ Vishnu…..What this means is the female left-brain, or the creative artistic side of the human brain isn’t given full potential to prosper through current trends.

In. No more porn and no more touching myself. I only did it once or twice a week (sometimes more), but the articles on yourbrainonporn have put me off of it. I want to get more into the human interaction aspect of sex rather than just the immediate gratification of an ejaculation.
