Sex raises Testosterone, why wouldn't masturbation also?

    Sex raises test, if you fap a lot you tend to also have a higher libido, after some time say a month of abstinence your libido does go down, often nonexistent, that should suggest masturbation also increases testosterone?

    Studies also show people who go to sex clubs and don't have sex, only watch also have higher test just watching.

    Having said that I hear sex and masturbation are different kettle of fish, can someone explain?

    It's a bit of a gray area and I would like to have a legit answer too!
    The only thing I know(heard of) is that T increases after 1 week of not ejaculating and then goes back to "normal" again..
    And because I didn't find a clear answer and do not have a partner right now, I decided to fap every few days (WITHOUT PORN OF COURSE) just get the pump working.

    I believe after a week it circulates throught the body but I have not seen any studies to support this.

    The pump is working at night when you have erections, regardless it will work. Apparently after some time libido goes back up and you're horny all the time.

    Answer is simple
    Fap increase DOPAMINE by keeping u aroused all the time & easily triggered by any stimulus
    It"s fake libido believe me
    So after abstinence ur body shifts libido during meeting or dealing with REAL ATTRACTIVE WOMEN NOT A PIC OR VIDEO
    that happened to me....

    Seems fair but don't forget that the whole NoFap started due to the recent high speed internet porn and its side effects. (and also the movement is not against vanilla masturbation).
    Before that, men were masturbating to magazines or to their thoughts and the reported ED's were significantly lower.

    I've also wondered and heard of people in flatline for a significant period of time lose interest in Sex, Masturbation after NoFap.

    Maybe artificial Dopamine as the guy above mentioned said, has you jacked up but if not I may want to continue jacking off as well. Don't want my Libido to disappear

    Nah I wouldn't man, exercise, and raise T. Also abstinence will make you so much more attracted to females, there is apparently a stage libido goes down but this is your addiction and possibly dopamine which is out of wack. your natural state without porn is where its at, I wouldn't go back to jackin it in an attempt to have a libido, is unnecessary and it returns even stronger with abstinence, and you hold on to your sexual energy within you, when you bust man you lose it, hold it in you.

    I've decided to stay on semen retention for at least 1-2 months and try make it to 90 days and see what happens, I've been fapping my whole life and busting nuts, I want to see what life is like without it.

    Attraction goes way up because your not tired or bored with just regular conversation . It could be that when we fap we are getting our dopamine from porn . Having conversation with just about anyone fills that dopamine craving . When I am practicing nofap my attention to others goes way up and other people like that and that is attractive to all .
