Hello all, I am a newly recruited anti-fapstronaught. I've decided to take on the big 90 challenge by trying something easier first, something you've bound to have heard about from social media—that something being good ol' NNN. I've been interested in NoFap before, and I'm currently about 8 days in. [I started a few days before November, but hey, this is my longest streak!] I'm treading the waters by doing 30 days first, just to get a feel for it. I have done some of my homework, and on top of some of the other benefits, larger, more powerful orgasms promised by a method known as "semen retention" have been my driving force thus far. This month has been straight up painful, but I'm committing to it. I'd like to be able to control my reliance on pornography for moral, and maybe some observable reward. With all that out of the way, I'm trying to gather some information of my own to determine if I should take on the big 90. For this, NNN is only a trial, but I'm keeping some short daily journals on some of the things I've noticed, but I would like to assess the "semen retention" method at the end of the month. Does abstaining really lead to a larger finish? If so, what would be the best way to measure it: volume, or distance (in accordance to a control group)? As many are, I am somewhat of a skeptic, but I'm open-minded and would love to do a legitimate test on whether or not holding it in for an extended amount of time really does result in a delayed gratification. Considering the NNN movement has gotten so immensely popular through pop culture, I feel like taking a look into it is sure to yield some interesting information about NoFap. As for now, see you guys in December, maybe sooner with some journals. Please lemme know y'alls thoughts!
