    Does the homophobic ideology of the founders of the NoFap movement, Gary Wilson and Marnia Robinson, reflect badly on their assertions that led to the initial claims about the benefits of NoFap?

    Does their irresponsible and dangerous advice to people who are clearly mentally ill and/or gravely sexually confused cast doubt on the scientific provenance of NoFap claims?

    Does the clearly unsubstantiated nature of their scientific claims reflect poorly on the rest of their claims?

    I'm very interested in the views of the NoFap practitioners.

    Lots of trawling through the internet (and not just after having read this post) I have yet to see one substantiated medical trial done one not masturbating. I would be interested to know and read proper studies, but for now, everywhere I go, I see 'yourbrainonporn'.

    I am not aware of such a movement or linked homophobia, etc. but I can say that so far the idea of abstaining for quasi-nootropic benefits is unsubstantiated too...
