Hello everyone, I am a student of alternative medecines, especially ayurveda, and i wanted to seize the opportunity provided by this website to share a few things i have come to learn, from my readings but also mostly from my own experience concerning sexuality and its consequences on the body, especially for men. This is just a post, and it might quickly fade away unless some mod comes along and pin it, but it will be as an exercice for me because i might create content on that subject later on. Anyway, the first concept that i want to share with you, is that sex, especially ejaculation, is a huge drain on the body of men. I know that nowadays, the trend in the medical field is to hold the belief that sex has no consequences, and that you can indulge in it as much as you want without any after effects, but nothing could be more false. (Please note that sex is equally depleting for women, but not in the same ways as it is for men) For a man under 30 years old, it takes at least 8 days for the body to recover from the energy loss and nutrients used up during ejaculation. At the hormonal levels, many hormones are burned up, (serotonine, dopamine... I could not name them all). When a man ejaculates, he is literally throwing away his vital energy. When done in limited amounts and frequency, this is not that much harmful because of the accumulated reserves in the body. However, over indulgence very quickly depletes a man of his life force and will lead to several health issues, depression, anxiety, fatigue, weakness and so on. At this point i want to stress out that sexuality is natural and healthy, and it is a part of every life on the planet. However, one should be aware that over indulgence is not something to be taken lightly. So when it comes to Nofap, what you are doing is that you are keeping your life force in check. When a man does not ejaculate, the semen is reabsorbed by the body, and this increases the energy of the person because your body is relieved from the task of constantly producing semen, and is starting to use the energy obtained from food, breathing, sleeping, for others goals. However, some excess prostatics fluids or even dead sperms might be ejected at first during night falls or urination. This is perfectly normal, and it is just the body adapting itself to a new way of life. I really want to congratulate the people behind this website because they are bringing awareness of a modern plague, although they might not be aware of it. Many people experience unpleasant symptoms after sex, now you know why. The depression, fatigue, or whatever ailment you experience after sex is a sure sign that you are abusing yourself. This is not "in your head". It is very much real. The only solution to this problem is a reduction of the frequency of orgasms. In my experience, i would not recommand any men concerned by his own health to ejaculate more than once every 15 days. And i am being generous here. Now, if you are able to abstain from longer and longer periods of times, you will accumulate much refined prana (vital energy), and this will change your personality, and overall well being. This energy can be used as you like but it is a fuel that also can be used in spirituality, but this is another topic. Edit 25.05.18 : Semen is manufactured by using the best nutrients available in blood, which come itself from bone marrow, which come itself from sub products of digestion. So the body builds up subtle energy and nutrients over time, and these nutrients will compose the cream of the body. This is a long and costy process, and because semen is a life creating product, it will be made from the best bodilly nutrients available (in fact not only blood, but the whole body). When you ejaculate, semen has to be reformed, and that is why you function more slowly and are more tired. A simple comparison would be losing blood. Then you need time to go back to your previous optimal state. When you cease to ejaculate for longer periods, first the body reduce it's semen creating activity. Then nutrients will accumulate, and the precious energy and material will accumulate and be used by the body for other matters. This is why people experience "super powers", because the body is feeling well, and is rich with nutrients and subtle energy. So naturally there is more vitality, more radiance, and more confidence on the psychological level. The self healing abilities of the body will increase, immune system, memory will be boosted. Mood will be more stable. I hope my post will be appreciated. Regards!
