    Alright, day #16. Feeling good. Feeling very good. Bumped into the hot girl that lives in the flat opposite me (whom I hadn't spoken to properly before) and we had a good conversation. She let it slip that she was single without me asking - I'm taking that as a sign. :yy:

    Anyone got any tips for lasting a week? It's getting worse now, I have been getting caught by family member a lot more recently, and even sometimes whilst mid-orgasm....

    Well, it isn't so much abstaining, as it is a redirection of energy. So, in such a case of redirection, it will be healthy and beneficial. However, if it's just pure and oppressive abstinence (maybe, in a religious sense), then it may become detrimental.
    I am intrigued. What has led you to believe that abstinence will elicit these benefits? What 'benefits' are there?

    wowow calm down, are you just angry that you can't restrain yourself like us others? I don't know why anyone would lie about it, you can always restart and attempt again. I am on week two and life is good.
    Because not indulging this nonsense makes me some how not calm? You need to calm down, please, you're getting all angry for no reason.
    I can type I'm on week 50 and the sky is green, it doesn't make it true. It is just not believable that men would stop masturbating for an online thread. Not buying it, but you can all keep trying to sell it for attention.

    If it was true you wouldn't need to tell people about it and get all mad when someone who isn't a gullible idiot questions the validity of it all.

    Imagine you're on a beach. Feel the sand underneath your toes. Listen to the waves gently washing along the shores. Hear the calm breeze; feel it coolly relieving you of your tensions. Feel the gentle sun and smell the fresh air. With each ebb of the waves, feel your stresses release. Let go of the day's hardships and be at one with yourself in total calm.

    Now, isn't that better than being angry?

    Haha, don't bother with her guys, she has some deep rooted psychological problem, she literally jumps at every opportunity she can to start an argument with someone or prove that she's right :rolleyes:

    Enough people have admitted if they've failed. Obviously a lot of people will have signed up and then forgotten about coming back to update us, but there's a lot of people still doing the challenge. Almost anyone with a decent stint can tell you what benefits they're noticing.

    What reason would guys have to pretend they're far into it and have amazing effects? If they believed it was worthwhile then they'd actually try it themselves. Otherwise they'd just criticise and bemoan it. We get defensive when people criticise it without trying it, because we're doing it and feeling benefits from it.

    We're not christians/catholics trying to trick people into abstinence for the greater good of God. We're real people doing a real experiment which actually affects our life in some way. Yeah there's a lot of haters, but there's a lot of people for whom this thread is really important and motivating.

    It's a movement which some people like being part of, so why don't you get your head out of our business if you're not interested, and go be antagonistic elsewhere.

    Sovr'gn's banned so he can't respond right now, but you can see prospective benefits in one of the spoilers in the OP.

    edit: Have you actually read the thread at all, since you obviously have no clue why people are doing this. Let me name a few for you; Increased libido, more energy (doesn't apply to me though), huge balls, becoming more confident and socializing.. and one more I can think of that is affecting me is that I have way clearer face (yes! Masturbating causes impurities to some people).

    Increased libido? Yes because the guys on her are getting so much play. And it's not like if you don't masturbate you just get wet dreams anyway.

    More confident? Not related.

    Clearer skin? There is scientific zero proof of a correlation.

    I can say jesus speaks to me at night, I have no way to prove it so therefore it is absolutely meaningless information to you that I would implore you to disregard, the same applies to this.

    Again, if you weren't lying, you wouldn't care that someone questions the validity of this.

    For instance

    Me: I haven't eaten chocolate
    You: Yes you have
    Me: Okay then. think what you want.

    Me (if I was lying): WHAT DO YOU MEAN I HAVEN'T EATEN ANY CHOCOLATE GRRRR I FEEL SO GOOD AND HAVE MORE RESTRAINT THAN YOU!!!!!!! GRRRR

    I don't understand why people are doing this?? What do you actually gain? I think restraining from porn would be a better idea rather than not fapping at all! I'm not ashamed to say that I probably wouldn't be able to last longer than 2 weeks without tossing one off haha. I'd prefer to have a higher drive...

    I think most if not all of the guys who says they've stopped masturbating are telling the truth. What do they have to gain from lying? Plus, a lot later post to say they've failed and want new restart dates or to drop out. They get no kudos at all, on the contrary they look weak. So I think they're genuine.

    What I find more interesting is why hardly any girls are participating. We like to make out that we're less driven by our loins, we can live without it. But can we really? I'm trying, and I can tell you it's ****ing hard. I've got a boyfriend I see just over once a month in term time. If I were single, I'm telling you, there's absolutely no way I could go a year without strumming.

    So how about you set the guys an example and join me in a year without flicking the bean? Or are you going to be beaten by a bunch of guys????

    Why is it not believable, are you a man? No, i didn't think so. You don't know what willpower and determination to a man is. If a guy puts in so much effort into something he believes that will affect him positively he will prevail. And this isn't guys doing this for a random show bout to see who's the best. This is more than a challenge. For many of us its given as the self-confidence, better concentration and the resistance to abstain from something which the majority of men feel addicted to. We all know addiction to anything has its consequences i.e drugs, alcohol etc. Being a Biochemist student i've learnt so much how masturbating actually weakens your mind and focus of attention. However, that isn't the point. We are all in this together and if you've got a problem i suggest you take it somewhere else.

    Peace Out!!:unimpressed:
