    I have the sloution for you, and it only two words:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    stop masturbating


    Yes it sounds stupid. But honestly if you stop then the only way you'll be able to 'relieve' yourself is sex. Thats it on a postcard.

    But let me explain why:


    • Every time you masturbate you release dopamine which is only temporary. That temporary feeling lasts for about a minute and then you have the 'guilty' felling afterwards. That's the dopamine comedown
    • If you refrain from masturbating your body will naturally produce dopamine without the need to masturbate. This will project your confidence.
    • Without masturbating you will therefore have to get tour 'release' elsewhere. In other words: women.
    • The increase in confidence is due to to the increase in testosterone you produce without masturbating.


    Unfortunately I am not an expert but for those that aren't feeling confident or have any success with women just refrain from jacking off for a week or so and then see how you feel.

    Enjoy!

    Man you need to learn more about how to interpret scientific studies.

    Directly proportional eh? Correlation =/= causation.

    Alright I've altered it slightly.

    But seriously, you'll be amazed about how much better you feel without masturbating for a week. It gets hard (pardon the pun) after about 3-4 days but it is worth it!

    Just in case anyone was going to take OP's advice to heart, at the beginning of the year I abstained from masturbating for 90 days and did not conclude there to be any causal relationship between mastubatory frequency and social confidence. I recommend it fully as a challenge of self-discipline, since I've yet to find a challenge with such an efficient ratio of difficulty versus convenience, and success at it is likely to raise one's self-esteem, but only in the way that any other feat of self-control would similarly confer.

    If you're reliant on masturbation then by all means expunge it, since it's not good to be reliant on any habit, but if you're a normal guy then don't expect stopping masturbating to make you confident talking to women. If you want to be good at talking to women then talk to women, don't start looking for quick fixes.

    Either way, I think this is more of a placebo affect than anything. It might have worked for you, but it won't for me. I have gone a week without having a **** before and I really didn't feel any different.

    If it didn't worth for you then fair enough.

    I personally felt a lot different abstaining. I mean maybe it was because during my teenage years I was too reliant on it and therefore abstaining rekindled the natural testosterone I withheld due to maturating too much.

    There was a thread called 'no fap 2013'. Check the replies on that; I am not alone.

    You don't stop masturbating expecting to become 'good' at talking to women.
    When you stop you become more desperate I guess would be the word, to relieve your self from that blue ball sensation, meaning you have a bigger drive to go out and talk to girls or anyone for that matter. Basically you're more determined to get laid.

    Me personally if I don't masturbate for a couple weeks I become some kind of social slut, I'll talk to any girl anywhere. Reason I don't do it as much as I should is because day's off with nothing to do, as all guys know when boredom strikes..
