I’ve been on the NoFap Train for 4 years now.
I’m taking today to highlight some of the men who were willing to show their face on Youtube to share their experience with NoFap.
My personal opinion is similar to that of Gavin McInnis.
I will admit that, in my opinion, the NoFap movement has some “cult” style members. Every self-improvement group does though. If you’ve read Paul’s Letters in the New Testament, you know that the church of Galatians quickly had a Law-enforcing cult of “Judaizers” grow within it. That was 2000 years ago. There are Tony Robbins cult members, MLM cult members. Tim Ferriss cult members. Steve Jobs cult members. Every gym on the planet has at least one self-hating perfectionist cult member.
With the “cult” elephant in the room pleasantly turned into delicious elephant bacon, we can keep this article moving forward to my next disclaimer.
I would agree that there is a point where semen retention stops being fire-in-the-belly, and starts being just as nihilistic and passive as self-abuse. There is a fine line between discipline for greatness, and pointless self-denial. Two to three week streaks are pretty awesome though. Anything past 21 days for me seems detrimental. Instead of freeing up tons of energy and optimism, it requires tons of energy and makes my countenance sad and twitchy. So yeah, definitely get laid at least once or twice a month to stay in the zone. Male celibacy is for illiterates and pedophiles.
Do you notice anything unique about these young men?
-Deep confident voice. The shame of masturbation and lust is gone, so they can be a more true version of themselves.
-Energetic eyes. Not the typical “glazed” eyes most millenials have.
-Goofy smile. They don’t hate themselves. They actually like themselves and are enjoying life.
Maybe you’ll get laid if you leave your cave,
