    Does relapsing cause your newly deepened voice to rise and weaken?

    Does anyone have a logical reason for that to happen?

    Since fapping is almost the equivalent physically to sex (you ejaculate), shouldn't there be no effects? Or can I assume that after having sex, my voice will weaken and rise in pitch?

    Thanks in advance!

    Nah man, sex or MO do not cause any changes in the voice. Puberty does that.

    I saw 1-3 people say that on reddit, hopefully it isn't true

    It's bullshit, plain and simple. The only thing that I know of that causes your voice to change to a higher pitch is helium. Also, your voice does not become deeper from not fapping. Again, your voice changes pitch throughout your life. Your voice does become more raspy if you smoke or eat a lot of dairy. That's why voice coaches caution people from eating dairy before performing, as it's known to fuck up your voice.

    Testosterone levels do boost a bit during the first week, but not enough to make your voice deeper. Also, those elevated levels plateau afterward. My guess behind the initial spike is because your body has become used to expending semen on a daily basis. When you abruptly stop, your T levels elevate after a few days because your body is preparing itself for more activity. The same thing happens if you have sex over a consistent period, then abruptly stop. Hell, I'll even argue that strength training has the same effect. I know I felt more energized and invigorated after taking a break from the gym after hitting the weights hard for a few weeks. Our bodies are pretty hard to fully understand. Hell, science can only really make an estimate based on whatever evidence is brought to the table.

    Much of NoFap's claim in regards to superpowers and the like defy common sense. This is an internet forum, and you're bound to encounter a few loonies who have nothing better to do with their time than to make up a bunch of shit that a gullible and impressionable person would believe.

    Hey man, Men's Health published an article saying that m lowers your testosterone. Studies show being with a women increases your testosterone. It's so true, whenever I historically m and then was in a pressure situation I was unglued. You can overcome this.

    Men's Health publishes all kinds of studies. Most of them are extremely inaccurate. I've read the study you're talking about, and it's so unscientific. Everyone's health is different. Some people can masturbate daily and not have a single issue, while some can't. It's called Libido. If you have a strong sex drive, you're going to be able to perform, regardless of whether you masturbate or don't. I'm speaking from experience, and I'm also smart enough to distinguish fact from bullshit. I would advise you to do the same. Seriously, judge for yourself whether or not a study is valid. Let the gears in your head turn every now and again.

    I'm gonna say what everybody is saying is right. I don't think so. I will say this though. There seems to be phenomenal changes with nofap. I don't understand them and I'm almost done trying to figure it out. I've only fapped once in the last 30 plus days and I'm experiencing huge changes. Unbelievable growth in my brain over the last while. I first noticed that girls were starting to notice me more and are approaching me to talk!! That's backwards from what I know lol. I then heard a recording of my voice and it's without a doubt different. I wouldn't say deeper, as monster carrot said that changes in puberty, but different for sure. I think it may be a confidence thing. Maybe as you carry yourself with more confidence your voice reflects that. Whatever it is the benefits are for sure real. It's strange but awesome.

    Just keep rolling man!!

    Confirmation bias isn't actual proof. If you're experiencing changes, then it's likely due to expectation. Basically, it's the same as going on a ghost hunt. You're already expecting something to happen, and when something does happen (say a weird noise), you automatically assume that it's a ghost or whatever. I'm not necessarily putting anyone down. If you are experiencing some sort of change, then I question the authenticity of it. For instance, the whole spiel about girls noticing you more can be attributed to you actually paying attention, or it could be that you've read that giving up masturbation somehow boosts your sex appeal, and so you act on that expectation. Like I said, I'm not putting you down. I'm just looking at this from a common sense, rational perspective.

    Ah, I beg to disagree with you awesomeness. Respectfully. There's without a doubt some chemical changes happening in the brain. After reading everything on yourbrainonporn.com it's clear that it's all about changing brain chemistry here. So who's to say that's not creating changes in body, actions, etc. Now, I'm fully agreeing with you that the voice isn't getting any deeper and won't be getting more high pitch with relapse, but projection may change. As far as women go, when I spent 26 years of my life barely being able to talk to a strange women and all of a sudden not only am I talking to them, but they're coming up to me in a lot of occasions, you can't tell me that there isn't something happening. I know your not trying to put me down and I take no offense, but when so many men experience a change in brain chemistry and a more positive outlook on life comes with it, then who has any right to say anything different. If this is just my brain being bias, shit i'll take it 7 days of the week over what I was a month or two ago.
    Just my feelings on the situation,

    Much love guys

    Happens (happened) to me too. And I'm over 20 so no question of puberty influence.

    I haven't noticed any change at all personally, but it seems some people have.

    Having a higher total testosterone will make it more likely to have a deep voice. So, it's possible that the little spike in testosterone to have the potential effect on one's voice, though my hunch is this is more of a long-term process.

    One other cause of high-pitched voice could be emotional blockages which come again to surface when relapsing. Not being free to express yourself authentically, extreme shyness, childhood traumas can cause you to have a higher-pitched voice.

    I don't think it will have any effect at all on your voice. But if I am wrong and your voice does go up please consider joinging a local community choir. I'm in one and you would not believe how desperate choirs all are for tenors.

    I second that. The deep voice is coming from the belly, the higher we breath, higher is our pitch. When we feel confident we breathe more deeply. When we do not feel well or feel stressed out we deep shallow.

    Ngl on my streaks my voice was raspier and felt deeper. After I relapsed my voice is not raspy at all and weak to the point where I need to repeat everything I say. Idk. Different people different results

    NoFap in of itself doesn't make any direct changes to your voice - but let me ask you one simple question. How do you feel in the midst of a NoFap streak?

    You probably feel a lot more assertive, confident, relaxed, right?

    Now how do you feel when you relapse? Probably ashamed, anxious, nervous right?

    Okay, now put a confident and a nervous person next to each other and listen to how they speak. There's a huge difference.

    When you're nervous and anxious, your speaking is usually quiet, stifled, and your voice is weak. When you're confident you take deeper breaths, and project your voice out. You sound louder, your words are clearer, and your voice sounds a lot better.

    So if you've found you've experienced voice changes and like the direction your voice was heading, I suggest practising some other exercises in addition to NoFap that are aimed around boosting your confidence.

    Doing some public speaking or even just talking to a camera will help a lot. I too used to have a very stifled thin sounding voice, but after I started doing a lot of talking for my job, my voice shifted quite a bit, and it's weird listening to records of myself from a few years ago vs recent ones. I've had lots of people compliment me on my voice in recent years since then too.

    I am at day 16 and I am experience a slight voice deepening.
    I can shout and sing in a lower pitched voice
    After relapsing, my voice becomes weaker..

    I don't know the science behind it..but I am pretty sure this is not an expectation bias nor the fruit of my imagination..
    This is really a nice bonus to have from noFap

  19. Other light gasses can do that too! Hydrogen for exemple, but in this case H2 is flammable lol.
     
  20. Actually, I know it's hard to believe but fapping will actually make your voice weaker for sure. When I go on a streak, people always tell me they think my voice sounds different. Every time. It's strange, but it's just the truth.

    I don't know whether it's because your voice actually changes, or if it's just because you're more confident and able to talk easier, but it definitely does something.
