    The thing is, I don't want to masturbate, but i have that feeling that i have to because i read that you could get prostate cancer when you edge alot. If I'm going to masturbate, I'm getting tired again and that's why I prevent masturbating.

    Masturbation to prevent prostate cancer is a MYTH.

    This is the study used to justify it

    The study does NOT differentiate between ejaculation from intercourse and masturbation, it simply assumes they are the same, when in reality they are physiologically different, prolactin spike for example is 400% after ejaculation from intercourse

    More so, there is a huge study (6k+ sample) on catholic priests (celibates) and they had LOWER prostate cancer rates than the general population.

    You do not have to masturbate to "protect the prostate". You do not have to ejaculate.

    Edging however does damage the prostate, so stop edging and stop getting yourself sexually aroused.

    I'm not a doctor,but I don't think you have to worry about prostate cancer.

    Can I ask about the earlier bit? Putting the prostate cancer stuff aside for a moment, why are you edging? You asked "
    do i have to masturbate to orgasm after edging?"

    So stop edging, isn't that why we are here? I don't understand why you are still edging.

    The edging thing is like torture. Can't be good for recovery.

    @MarkusmPointer, have you read The Glossary? Here's the entry about edging:

    Edging: Traditionally, this described masturbating to the brink of orgasm and stopping right before “going over the edge.” This could be repeated over and over, usually in conjunction with pornography. Some rebooters have tried this in a misguided attempt to rationalize pornography usage (“well, it doesn’t count if I didn’t orgasm!”). Now it is used more generally to describe masturbation without orgasm. If you are adhering to NoFap’s Normal or Hard Mode rebooting programs, edging is usually considered a reset.

    I've posted a bunch of times about edging, but it is worth repeating:

    Short version: DO NOT EDGE ! EVER !

    Edging is really bad. Edging trains your body and mind to expect and to need prolonged, often very intense, stimulation in order to reach O. That level of mental and physical stimulation doesn't happen with PIV relations. Guess what: when you attempt PIV, your body and mind don't receive the kind of stimulation it needs to O, instead your body responds with PIED and DE. Not good.

    Edging does NOTHING good, so stop. Easier said than done, but it is certainly NOT impossible and very much worth every bit of effort required to stop this damaging activity.

    For more information about edging, have a look at:

    Ding - ding - ding. Don't do it - will make PIED a lot worse.

    Don't do it. It's worse than M since we lie to ourselves about what it is we are doing and how it's not as bad.

    In addition, it always leads to MO. Maybe not any one particular time, but days down the road i've said 'oh F this, i need to..." Looking back i've always had a reservation to finish either during an edge (by accident) or after (deliberately).

    Don't do it. Not worth the tease (and no 'grand finale' unless you slip and regret it after). You will still get the negative mental effects of M as well, plus you will reset your day count.
