Is a vasectomy a surgical method for seman retention?

    The title says it all. Thoughts?

    I don't personally believe in the benefits of semen retention, but yes, a vasectomy would effectively retain your semen.

    However, if you're a young man who hasn't had children, please don't sacrifice your only method of reproduction because you're going through some kind of radical fapstronaut phase. Your profile says 32, you have most of your life still ahead of you. Why get a vasectomy?

    I already did and reversed it. It was a horrible decision and completely unrelated to retention when I got it. I mention this because there is a lot of weird hype about the power of seman retention. If a vasecomy acheives this, then for 4 years I should have been a superman, but I wasn't. I was just curious what the hype men thought.

    Wow, that's very interesting. I'm sorry I jumped to conclusions! Good for you! I'm also intrigued as to what others will think.

    It doesn’t prevent ejaculation of semen. The semen merely contains no sperm.

    It's the seminal fluid only that contains the power or both? Many of the posts contain language suggesting that the "life force" and "seed" contained in semen holds the power which I assumed was sperm.

    I’m not familiar with all the concepts contained in Eastern medicine. As far as I know the rest of semen is merely a vehicle for delivering sperm to the female egg.

    I’ve been snipped for nearly half my life. Since then, I haven’t experienced any superpowers and have continued to MO, until I came to NoFap last fall. My biggest problems with PA have been in the past 10 years, long after my vasectomy, so I can’t say I think there’s any connection between the two.

    @Unhooked I hope you make progress and find freedom from PA. This site helps me a lot, despite my failures to break the 90 day milestone.

    My understanding is that the energy to produce the ENTIRE semen solution is what's trying to be saved. The actual sperm cells are indeed "saved" so I am guessing this helps somewhat.....but not nearly as much as retaining semen.

    Not if you're still nutting. Just because you're firing blanks doesn't mean you're not wasting your ammo.

    same. Dick control is important though.

    Does that require I use both hands?

    It takes tremendous energy for your body to ejaculate (even if there is no sperm). The tremendous energy is what drains you. Each time you ejaculate, you lose vital force.

    My opinion is that vasectomy doesn't make any difference. It's the entire semen (not just only sperm) that drains your vital force

    Hope this helps?

    All the explanations here make sense to me. Many complex components involved and energies used in a semen ejection. Don't fire until you see the whites of her/ his eyes, I guess.
    Honestly, retention has caught my interest, I like the struggle/ benefits and now my newly found other gained activities I seek out in place of searching out pictures and women to expel on. The whole ejaculation process has taken up way too much time and energy of mine over the years. What an obsession it can be. I like the retention philosophy. I only wish that I discovered it in my younger years. Would of helped in school, military, socially, everything. It still helps alot now,
    at 56 yrs old. Always wondered why the 3 Stooges or was it the Little Rascals were trying to gain by joining "women Haters" clubs.They failed all the time too, just like me. haha. It was their attempts at retention!!!!

    I am similarly 56 years old. Your sentiments mirror mine--only you said it more clearly and understandably than I could have!

    I wished I learned retention earlier myself.

    The society puts too much emphasis on ejaculation. I even had my urologist telling me to resume ejaculation!!!

    Interesting what your urologist said SeaGuy. Perhaps interesting is that a number of years ago my urologist said that at my age "less is more" when it comes to ejaculation. He didn't care for the idea of a chastity tube, but he said there is absolutely no need to "cause" an ejaculation. (he said if the body needs to purge, a wet dream would happen naturally)
