It's now been about 7 months of NoFap for me. Initially the focus was to not do PMO. NoFap led to semen retention which has been a very different focus. Last night after another ~ 2 week streak I had a "spontaneous ejaculation". It seems one way or another ejaculation happen for me after about 2-3 weeks. We are not talking about PMO here. I read about Taoist sexual cultivation on this website. After wasting several months trying the various sexual kung fu stuff, I realized it wasn't easy to perform these unnatural maneuvers and have instead tried to focus on simpler energy meditations, namely the microcosmic orbit. This meditation has allowed me to channel the sexual energy up. After many dead end efforts to define my boundaries on this PMO stuff (a most recent huge disappointment with erotic hypnosis which, although there were no visuals, had a very similar feel to PMO). The meditation practice has seemed to be a healthy option but I have found as the days pass, the energy builds. Last night after doing the meditations I went to sleep and awoke feeling aroused. I lay there in bed and felt the energy build and build until I had an ejaculation/orgasm without any sexual thoughts at all. Initially as I felt the energy building I tried to use some the Taoist techniques to direct the energy up but that didn't help. As I step back from this experience I realize I didn't violate my PMO goal (except there was an O). I do realize the meditation practices are circulating the sexual energy. I'm not sure if this is just one more variant of edging. A few months ago I posted a story where I awoke after 3 weeks of retention and had a full body non ejaculatory orgasm, this was of a similar energy as the build up sexual energy expressed itself spontaneously without me directing it at all. The most recent iteration is similar except there has been a conscious effort to channel the sexual energy for good. Since there has been no PM I feel like I'm making progress but I do wonder if this will still mess with the dopamine recovery process.
