Well is it true that penis is "use it or loose it"?
If you stop M for a long period of time you will achieve a normal erection ( or in some cases, a better one than before).
NO, "use it or lose it" is NOT true when it comes to your penis. The human body was designed to regulate all your penis functions without you doing anything. Your body pumps blood through the tissue in your penis during the night (the true cause of "morning wood" is your body flowing blood through the tissues to keep them healthy) and occasionally you'll get wet dreams because your semen production is continuing as normal. There is ZERO downside to quitting masturbation, and many upsides, especially for those with PIED or addictions to masturbation.
This. The penis is not a muscle and the tissues do not behave in the same way. There is no wastage of the kind you would experience if your arm was in plaster for 90 days.
If u dont use ur arm for 90 days u will lose muscle i think
Yes. That's what I mean.
If you do not masturbate and do not use anything down there in any kind of sexual activity either what could be negative effects? Well, you could possibly become more sensitive. Which might cause way faster ejaculation when you do happen to finally have sex. But then again, that might be positive thing for some. Besides, you could probably de-sensitize it back down pretty fast, if you would want to. Other then that I can't think of any negative effects, at least not physically. Having wet dreams and having to clean up all the time at the middle of night might be a negative. Or being frustrated and not giving yourself permission to release that. That could be annoyance. No, as others have said above, you won't lose it tho.
I am new, What is PIED?
Porn induced erectile dysfunction. i think
In my experience, whenever I am having dry spells (two or more months without sex or masturbation), my penis seems to shrink and even my erections are not that hard. On the other hand, when I am having a lot of sex (say one straight week of having sex every day), my penis seems to be at least an inch longer when soft and the hardness of my erections becomes much better. Unfortunately, I have never been in a situation where I have sex every day for more than one week in a row, so I don't know what would have happened if I continued to have sex for a month in a row, for example. So in short, for me the "use it or lose it" applies to some extent.
You are corrdct about this. Its really bad porn and there is no reason to watch porn, if u cant get turned on by anything else well too fucking bad dont watch porn. Now its not good to hold it all in and not masturbate watsoever so i dont really agree with this no masturbating thing with nofap and i think its bullshit but i agree with porn and edging. Edging is stupid you jack off or finish it or dont jack off at all. Masturbatinf excessively is bad but i dont see why u should hold it all in.. use it or lose it. I would listen to my body if it doesnt effect u or ur brain and u dont feel like shit do it but not alot.
Actually, holding it in (if you use it without porn), and try to learn on how to get an orgasm without ejaculations, is the basics of tantric sex, and the way for men to experience multiple (body) orgasms. I have been practicing tantra on and off for the last couple of years, and one time I had experienced this with a tantric woman (she was very experienced and much older than me), and it was absolutely fantastic. We were making love for almost three hours, and didn't even feel like ejaculating, and my whole body was pulsating at the end of it, and the only reason we stopped was because I was absolutely wasted. And the next day, I was so full of energy and not tired at all, even though I slept only few hours. Unfortunately, I have experienced this full body orgasm thing only once. Have to track that lady!
In Taoism, the ancient chinese philosophy of sex and many other aspects of life, it is also recommended to not ejaculate that often , specially the older you get. For example, as a teenager, you can come several times per day and still not feel the "hangover" of coming. On the other hand, as a 50 year old man, you are risking a very big hangover if you ejaculate several times per day (by "hangover" here is the drainage of energy you feel the day(s) after ejaculation, that is why it is common practice for many athletes abstain from sex few days before major competitions). Also, the refactoring period (time to get erect/aroused again after ejaculation) is rather short for younger guys. So Taoists recommend to come maybe only a couple of times per month for older guys (Read more about this at http://www.1vigor.com/article/ejaculation-frequency/)
I have come across some tantric teachers who recommend not coming at all unless you are trying to make a baby, but I think that is stretching it too much. And to be honest, ejaculating after not doing so for some weeks, feels so good to me!. Also, there has been some studies showing prostate cancer risk is higher on guys who ejaculate much less frequently (but the studies have never considered those who practiced tantric/taoist sex/masturbation without coming, they just compared those who masturbated/had sex frequently with those who didn't).
Im an athlete so i try and avoid it anyways. Im 13 and my hangover lasts for days.. even after a wet dream
If I don't masturbate I get very horny and do things I probably shouldn't do. But, masturbating too much has its problems, too.
Yes thats my point just not too much
