    people down in abstinence seem to rely more on instinct than anything else because this one has read studies that show testosterone have nothing whatsoever to do with frequent ejaculation but if you can point a more accurate article be my guest.

    someone who has a high level of testosterone is likely to have social and perhaps health problems but in any case high level of testosterone = high sex drive -ie someone who has it will certainly not be into abstinence or semen retention.

    I'm not saying I completely agree abstinence actually has a large effect on testosterone, I'm just saying there is evidence that ties into what OP is saying. There's also evidence that shows the opposite actually, that test increases after pmo. Problem is both of these studies are too small and not conclusive enough to really say for certain. But either way, for practical purposes it's probably just a good idea to stop pmo whether or not test increases. If you're interested in the science though that's a whole 'nother thing.

    So we have read your article and it is somewhat sketchy, apparently the level of testosterone peaked on the 7th day after ejaculating, which then decreased back down to normal levels on the 8th day and stayed at the normal level. Thing is the peak was caused by ejaculation there does not seem to be anything about the level of testosterone without ejaculation.
    Overall it is true the field is not very widely researched but even when sexual activities in general seem to point to a short term increase in testosterone it does not seem to be relevant to affect anything.
    On the other hand it seems that physical activities is a better way to increase your testosterone. But yeah stoping pmo should be the number 1 goal here, although giving false expectations like the OP is doing can create its own set of problems.

    As opposed to what, having low T accompanied by 0 energy/mental illness(depression anxiety) amongst others?
    I highly doubt an individual who faps often has high T, just as someone who practice semen retention will not have this astronomical unhealthy amount of T, which I'm assuming is what you mean.

    Yeah completely agree, that's kinda what I'm trying to say. Test only increases because it was reduced so much due to excessive masturbation. So there might be "benefits" for an addict, but these benefits feel perfectly normal for a person who isn't addicted to porn. Its just going back to normal, but for someone who has sunk so low even getting back to normal can feel like the best thing in the world and almost super.

    Superpowers don't exist, you become a regular person.

    Shut up Stupid.
    "Energy is neither created nor destroyed, it only transforms". You must be a stupid men if you think , you dont lose nothing by fapping. If you truly believe this is absolute nonsense, you wouldnt be in a group about benefits of nofap.

    I agree. But normal feels like having superpowers compared to the degenerate PMO lifestyle.

    How would somebody feel when they're finally sober after being a severe heroin addict for 20 years?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think the link between M and low testosterone levels have been scientifically well-probed yet. I never noticed anything in that sense when I restrained myself from M for months.

    On the other hand, our dopamine receptors are not really destroyed, but disabled to prevent our neurons to be destroyed due to an overload of excitement (or something like that). Disabled means ... when we stay away from all that excitement for a long time, we can heal easily.

    Well, nobody knows what men are suppossed to do in terms of M because all of us have different libido levels. But it's crystal clear that we wouldn't M every day or many times a day if it weren't because of P. P is an artifical neverending source of excitement for us, and that's really the problem.

    Totally agree with you.

    Well, I guess after been numbed and sleepy for years, waking up and noticing alive and with lots of energy again ... could be mistaken as superpowers for many.

    If you still think the counter shows something about who we are and how advanced we are in dealing with our problems ... you're still a newbie.

    It absolutely does... I have a word other than "newbie" for what you're trying to suggest.

    Finally, someone realistic!

    Indeed, NoFap of itself does not do anything AT ALL. Except for when you are retaining semen gets you to being stronger in the gym. (Also why pro fighters do not have S** or M before fights)

    Why would anyone stop PMO if it didn't offer great benefits? Me thinks there are people on here trying to justify their addiction...or at least they were on here, and were banned by the mods for that very reason.

    Yeah the counter means nothing.....says everyone under 1 week.....interesting coincidence ;o)

    Hello argentine fellow
     
  20. This is a good post but make sure you don't leave the impression that NoFap raises testosterone. There are studies on that, and I have checked my own levels to confirm it.

    But more testosterone is not what a man needs. He needs to use what he already has, which is enough. I think you were trying to say that.

    The dopamine spiking in the brain creates tolerance to dopamine, but also the good things we need too, mainly serotonin.

    So we pretty much agree, I guess...?
