Does Nofap really give you super powers? Undoubtedly, anyone who has experienced abstinence from ejaculation intuitively knows of the benefits of semen retention: the attention from females, the increase in energy and productivity, the confident swagger and so on... Why is this? I believe these "super powers" come from maintaining a sperm surplus. The male body is constantly producing sperm cells every millisecond. These sperm cells take around 64 days to reach full maturation. The sperm cells when you ejaculate began months prior. Your body will store a surplus of sperm cells ready for when it is time to mate. Naturally, the most optimal way to ensure reproduction is to abstain for months and "spend it" on a female who is ovulating by mating with her over and over. This is reflected in how animals tend to mate i.e. large periods of abstinence followed by mating like crazy in a short space of time. Let's put some numbers to this. Your body produces several million sperm cells every day. It takes 64 days to fully regenerate sperm, after which you'll have around 8 billion sperm cells. Any unused sperm cells are recycled after 64 days. You ejaculate anywhere from 20 million to 300 million sperm cells. Using this math it would take around 26 ejaculations to fully deplete your sperm cells... What does this mean for semen retention? It means that you aren't back to square one if you fap. Your stores will simply take a hit. Its better to fap the least amount of times rather than to focus on a streak. Even if you fap once a week you are still building up a surplus. Ideally you would want to abstain for the 64 days to achieve maximum fertility. So how does all this relate to the super powers? Naturally, the whole point of sexual attraction is to reproduce. If you was to max out your sperm surplus then your ability to reproduce is also at its maximum capacity. In comparison to if your stores are depleted like the majority of guys walking around. You are literally a million times more fertile. Fertility = more female attention. What would a woman want with a guy who can't give her a child? This is why they are repulsed. An increase in fertility = changes in behaviour. You can see this in females. Its quite comical how their behaviour changes from their period to ovulation. When they are on, their fertility tanks and during ovulation their fertility sky-rockets. They go from cold, snappy, disrespectful to playful and flirty. Your instincts change on nofap. You have a surplus of sperm that needs to be used. Your instincts are willing you towards women, its harder not to go approach women, whereas the average coomer's instincts are to shy away from women. The latter needs to go find food and build up his stores whereas you are ready to mate that is the difference. So there you have it, my thoughts on semen retention.
