    5. Abstinence, Retention, and Sexual Transmutation

      Beyond Recovery "MO", masturbation and orgasm discussion. Retention, coined from semen retention (since retention can be practiced by both males and females), is the act of abstaining from orgasms for longer periods of time, often outside of the goal of recovering from pornography addiction. Those retaining are often interested in topics such as sexual transmutation, motivation/energy level changes, or other effects of going for longer periods of time abstaining from or greatly reducing the occurrence of orgasm. Some "rebooters" end up enjoying the effects of inadvertent "retention" that they get from a reboot and want to continue on even after they reverse the effects of porn addiction. General masturbation discussion can go here too.

      This is the age group of many of the original users of the NoFap® platform. We're among the first generation of those who went through early puberty with the existence of high-speed Internet porn, and many of us are experiencing significant side effects. Time to get clean!
