    So is calling "bullshit" out on a guy for professing bullshit also bullshit? Or is someone trying to get a cheap laugh on guys calling each other out on bullshit also bullshit?

    Or am I just full of shit?
     
  2. I guess there are many layers of bullshit to sift through. Or not.

    It's... bullshite, tbh. Pretty sure that the reason that it works for some is purely psychological or something.

    Self hypnosis? Lol

    Wow, this is a divisive topic!

    In my humble view and experience (not claiming these to be facts!):
    • The body gets used to an ejaculation frequency that is determined by recent experience. If I reduce the frequency rapidly and stick with it long enough, a wet dream will happen sooner or later.
    • Reducing the frequency gradually will hold off wet dreams for quite some time. Whether it can do so indefinitely I don't know.
    • Apart from the above I don't see a way to control it. And I don't see anything bad/wrong with wet dreams. If your body has to get rid of something it just does. Not much you can do about it.
    • I have never tried semen retention or made it my aim (because personally I am not convinced by it). Semen retention might happen for me anyway until I find a new GF, if I succeed with nofap.
    • When sex is available, I have no doubt what I would choose. I don't know if semen retention has benefits. But what I know for sure is that sex (when you are not PMOing or having issues in the bedroom) does a lot of good to your body and mind.
    • Oh, and natural selection does not favour those who practice semen retention :p
     
  5. The benefits are probably more to do with avoiding orgasm. Orgasm causes chemical changes in the brain which take two or three weeks to recover from (apparently).

    I think avoiding orgasm works up to a point. You don't need to avoid it for life or anything.

    You make bold statements based on only your own experience. You have obviously done no research of your own as you present no argument to back your claim that it's "obviously bullshit". My experience has been that semen retention as part of sexual transformation creates a very powerful, positive life force which can be channeled to benefit you in many other areas of life. But it combines spirituality and sexual energy. For you it seems anything spiritual is bullshit, so I won't waste my energy trying to explain or share more.

    Close to the same PMO streak now. Experience:
    1st nocturnal emission at day 10
    2nd at day 14
    3rd at Day 30

    Lack of sleep prevents nocturnal emissions from taking place and semen is discharged after urine during urinations. (it feels like the pee shivers while it happens). You get frequent urges to urinate if you try to hold the excess fluid in. This happened before day 30 emission and currently.
    Conclusions:
    1)semen Retention is still bullshit.
    2)get your sleep !

    I am not a person who likes to cuss when typing in english, so yes, retention is male bovine feces. For those who considers it a way to increase your spiritual connection or something of the sort, I find good that you can use it that way. It is a psychological matter, those who have experienced the supposed benefits is because they have worked to better themselves and they give all the credit to NoFap.

    I wonder about this too. This is not just Hindu. It is also Taoist (they even practiced sex without ejaculation) and Manicaean (they thought that semen traps light/spirit when it tries to escape the material world/darkness).

    I am on day 53 and had one last night. It actually hurt!

    For those who are curious: I knew it was about to happen. In my dream, i was about to board a bus. I knew I would ejaculate if I did. And I boarded that bus. And boom. I have been feeling on the verge of masturbating for days. my balls and perineum were extremely uncomfortable.

    To me, the weird thing was that my Will was present in some form when it happened - I could choose, or at least I had the illusion that I could.

    I’m not counting last night as a reset. I did not P or M.

    Also, I’m trying to improve my awake life. I’m not trying to achieve some enlightened state through an ancient eastern practice.

    Now if you excuse me, I am off to meditate.

    Seriously! What's next...

    Detachable private parts that you place in a strong vault at night, and replace in the morning to get on with your day!

    Damn!

    Your urologist said your body does not need to ejaculate? Perhaps he just meant "as of now" rather than ever, no?

    "Oh, and natural selection does not favour those who practice semen retention :p"

    You know right, that you can voluntarily choose to undo Semen Retention once you want to pro-create, which is the ultra-mode that some retentioners practice?

    Unless you enjoy having wet dreams, you will discover it can be challenging dealing with the side effect of wet dream, like the chaser effect, reduction in mental clarity and above all going through a flat line after a wet dream. the way out is to clear your subconscious mind of the lustful energy you have accumulated in your life time, this requires the use of your will power to control your dreams by telling your subconscious mind how to act when you go to sleep so as not to have a wet dream, also do not leave your sexual energy concentrated in your genital area, use your mind to circulate this energy in your vital organs this will boost the over all energy in your body and you can use this boost of energy to work or study. avoid mental edging or edging to porn as this deposit lustful energy in the subconscious mind. when all is okay the body can achieve full orgasm without any internal or external stimulation and also without emission, this will happen by just listening to the energy flow within your body when the intensity of the energy is quite high. this is what i can share of my experience, you may discover more as this body is a very mysterious machine. as usual take the religious bs out and study how your body works. THE NATURE OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND IS TO MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF WHAT IS PLACED IN IT, so if you have lustful energy running in your subconscious it will give you lustful result

  18. How do you know you can't develop magical powers? Why is it so obvious bullshit to you? I've tried Qigong and Chi energy is definitely real my friend. After a while you start to feel it and direct it in your body, which lets you do some weird things. You seem to be very quick to jump to conclusions about something you have very limited understanding and experience about. Have you even tried it? Me for example, I've done nofap for over 100 days... I am writing this while levitating! My penis can now bench press 500 pounds!

    I'm talking about nocturnal emissions, I do agree that I have been able to remove sexual dreams, but the emission occurs nontheless
    What about curls?
