I think all the benefits of SR are due to Prolactin

    Prolactin interferes with testosterone and also plays a role in mood regulation and anxiety.
    I think that constantly releasing f'ks up prolactin levels and cause it to fluctuate.
    That explains the mood swings and irritation for two weeks after an orgasm.
    I am intrigued by prolactin and it's role in the male sexuality and mood regulation.
    Anyone with any info,please share.

    There are many problems with frequent emissions. Prolactin is not one I would rank as up there. As it relates to mood I would imagine the spiritual affects are most at play. When you get to a point where you’re actively trying to stop something but you continue to do it, getting hit with that post but clarity immediately after, it takes a toll on you.

    As it relates to anxiety (a neurological symptom) you have to consider that the act of sexual stimulation releases high amounts of adrenaline. Adrenaline which can easily create neurological inflammation, and hence worsen anxiety. Especially during masturbating where you aren’t typically moving much. Duding sex you are at least moving a fair amount which helps dissipate the adrenaline just as you would in a fight or flight situation.

    There is barely any. Only the blood and vitals you release during "releasing" will be kept in your body. That and your dopamine receptors return to normal.

    That is because they don't want to connect the dots.

    Retention of the very seed that your body allocates it’s finest resources to in order to produce life. Go and donate blood as often as possible and see how you feel. Having to replenish everything that’s lost in the blood is a huge burden on the body, just as replenishing semen is. Zinc is one of the most important minerals lost in semen, but there are several more. There are forces at play which we have no clue about involved in semen retention or release of semen. Regardless, it doesn’t matter. We intuitively know that retaining improves our being in every way. Looking for explanations is cool and all, but we will never have it all figured out.

    100% sexual abstinence/ celibacy is the most powerful by far, but even having sex without releasing is still powerful.

    Yep, agree with you 100%. I found out BY CHANCE about prolactin when I had gotten bulging neck discs. Got MRI and they saw the discs but they also saw a PITUITARY ADENOMA which is a benign tumor on your gland. I have been working with endocrinologist for years before I came across NoFap. I literally at that point of the bulging neck discs starting seeing the effects of over consumption on PMO when my penis barely would get erect anymore and just stayed flat. It was prolactinoma produced by the pituitary gland when you consistently release orgasm. The pituitary releases prolactin into the blood stream. I forget why it does that but basically calms the body down and acts as a drug as well after orgasm. I think somebody said it way back when I got on this board that if that didn't happen a man would continue to have sex over and over again and release so essentially like taking CIALIS/VIAGRA and keeping a hardon for hours. This prolactin essentially brings your sex drive down as well as your erection. You would literally have an erection for hours if that didn't happen. So, now you see what happens to a mans body/mind with too much release. Even if you are married or girlfriend. Too much release just destroys your body. Then when conservative people/religious say that sex should be saved for marriage/reproduction YOU ALL KNOW now that is the truth. We as a society ABUSE procreation and our bodies and the PEOPLE WITH POWER above us know that. Another way to keep men down and emasculated. Telling women they need it all the time as well as men. Making them think nothing except for getting laid. That is why when we say WORK ON YOURSELF, it means you need to actually stop PMO or MO for good and focus on the rest of your life. SEX is only an act and should not be the basis of being happy in life. SEX is not going to make you a happy person only maybe for a short period of time. I can understand why a lot of men after years of marriage are just not satisfied as well as women because the release or orgasm was in front of everything else they couldn't see.

    Now, my doctors started me on a drug called cabergoline which brought my prolactin level down and like magic, my boner was back to itself again. I don't know how many men are suffering from prolactinoma but it is awful not to understand what is going on because a doctor for men's health might not be trained to check for pituitary problems, only an endocrinologist would require testing for this. A doctor for men's reproductive health would probably just prescribe the latest boner medication on the market and be done with it but that I hear only lasts so long as well.

    I did keep masturbating after taking the cabergoline and figured if I didn't release then the prolactin would stay the same and it did. I was basically edging to porn for years until about 2.5 years ago when I came upon NoFap and decided to drop the porn as well as MO. It is really hard from the years of full on PMO and edging but I will eventually get it all out of my system.

    Thanks mate.
    I think that the propaganda machine drilling this into our brains all the time, pleasure = happiness is making us miserable.
    Pleasure isn't happiness, pleasure is misery if abused.
    Your problems with edging is also related to dopamine.
    High dopamine without releasing keeps the brain alert and the body agitated.
    This will cause severe insomnia ,not to mention host of other issues.

    Semen retention with no edging will recalibrate your whole system.
