    this is a genuine question ok

    does masturbating interfere with progress in terms of revision for a level exams. e.g if i fap twice a day but revise can i still get a*s.

    some people told me that if i fap i get brain fog and become dumber or less motivated so i shouldnt fap coming up to exams. it feels amazing and relaxes me but a levels are more important to me so idk wat to do pls help me. thank u.
    During my A-levels, I only fapped on the weekend. I was exercising like an absolute maniac at the time as well so i needed to be both mentally sharp and physically vigorous. Fapping only got rid of that edge which I think is what kept me (semi) productive during my studies. You should really try to exercise discipline during your studies. In my experience, delayed gratification increases my motivation. Anyway, if you look at it from an evolutionary perspective, human males are driven by the innate desire to procreate. All the achievments we aspire to will help us attract a 'suitable' mate. When you bust a nut, your brain thinks you have fulfilled this biological imperative, therefore the drive to excel and spread your seed will momentarily decline so as to conserve bodily resources which would have been sparse in more primitive times. In theory, that should apply to A-levels. The same is true of food; fasting can, for a finite period, improve your physical performance, increase testosterone and make your mind sharper. This is why I often exercise in fasted state.

    Don't overdo it though. I once didn't fap for two weeks and by the ninth day, I was leaking pre-*** into my f*cking boxers (tmi? lol). In fact, I even got a urinal track infection because some of that pre-*** dried and when I p*ssed it out, I think it damaged the inside of my urethra which meant that every morning after my second p*ss of the day, I would experience vomit inducing pain from my c*ck to the point where I would delay my second p*ss to later in the day (after 10am if I remember correctly) by which time the possibilty of experiencing that pain was gone. Some of my mates thougt I was doing steroids in the school bathroom everymorning lol. my urethra was completely buggered for a full month. Anyway, this got a bit off-topic.
    Try abstaining from fapping and see if it benefits you. If it doesn't, or you end up wanting to sh*g everything that has a hole, there's no shame in squeezing off a round every now and then. Hope this helps

    People who tend to be depressed or are having a bad day will masturbate and feel good but this is an endless loop. I won't say anymore because I talked about this so much like 2 years ago in year 11
    This is the 'people in insane asylums masturbate, therefore masturbation makes you insane' fallacy.

    OP: listening to year 11s on this would be even worse than listening to people who think that gentle head stroking cures cancer...

    Their thoughts on other matters do not discredit their studies on pornography addiction.
    Of course they do. It's like listening to homeopaths talking about physics.

    Furthermore, this research is complemented by several other people, not just the AOA. For example, a neuropsychiatrist at Cambridge University has found in brain scan images that watching online pornography can alter grey matter in the brain.
    You know that research isn't reproduced by several other studies?

    (Original post by rickyrossman)
    True. But how many people do you think masturbate without porn? Not very many.
    (citation needed)

    Watching porn has long been associated with having sex, either masturbation or with partner, but that doesn't mean that both always happen with porn.

    It doesn't seem that most masturbation is with porn in the studies of the (very detailed) diaries of gay men's sex lives.

    semen is precious in sense every time bust a nut it removes various minerals from the body which otherwise could be reabsorbed
    If that were the case, why isn't martial intercourse seen as bad?

    The amount of minerals in semen is a) tiny and b) much less than you consume, unless you're on a starvation diet.

    no fap isnt about masturbation it about porn.
    If that were the case, why isn't it 'no porn' rather than 'no fap'?

    porn and masturbation goes hand in hand
    We'll just leave that one there...

    i think no fap does wonders to people and really a shame only a handful of ppl partake
    If you've gotten something out of denying yourself pleasure, great, but it's bad that you're shaming other people.

    It depends. If you're fapping to porn then yes it will interfere with your revision. Porn rots your brain and kills intimacy.

    Anyone who says anything about masturbation being unhealthy is extremely misinformed. Masturbation is completely normal and will not effect your ability to concentrate. It may only effect you negatively if you decide to go cold turkey during your exams. Men typically masturbate ~2 times a week on average, but note that this is an average for all males so 16-18 year olds may be higher. Your "experiment" only lasted about 1 day so its not a very scientific experiment. I personally do not masturbate but that's because i have sex with my girlfriend twice a week (which is essentially the same thing)

    If anything, masturbation helps mental health so could be a plus.

    No its not... People who have studied osteopathic medicine are physicians just like those who complete MD/MBBCh degrees. This is unlike homeopaths who have no qualifications in physics.

    Its just another source. I never said otherwise.

    This isn't wikipedia. No need for citation needed passive aggressiveness.

    But we're interested in people who masturbate with pornography, on their own. OP has concerns about masturbating effecting his study habits.

    Most people who masturbate to pornography are straight single males. You don't need a citation this is just common sense. Most women feel cheated if their significant other is getting off to pornography. Whether the feeling is valid or not is not relevant.

    I used to do NoFap, but the stresses of exams sometimes get to me and I jerk it off to relax. If you think about it, the alternative to such immediate stress relief could be binge eating, drinking alcohol, even smoking... Just do it before bed so that you can sleep it off.
