What’s up, everybody? Welcome to this week’s blog!
As I’ve stated recently, I’m now working as a delivery driver in Florida and will be publishing content less frequently. Making deliveries takes a lot out of you, trust me. At the moment, I’m nursing a pair of sore calves and ankles.
And a blister from my boot, to boot.
Maybe the steel-toed pair I’m wearing on the job isn’t exactly ideal.
Whatever, enough about the job, that’s not what I lured you in for.
NoFap, Masturbation, and Circumcision
I happened to watch a couple videos of YouTube personalities discussing the supposed “benefits” of a “NoFap” lifestyle (basically when men abstain from masturbation altogether). Like recovering alcoholics, NoFap community members count the days of them avoiding their former addiction and living the “clean” life.
The theory is that masturbation causes men to be less productive and confident. Essentially, masturbation fools the man’s brain into thinking he’s reproducing with the opposite sex (our main biological imperative as homo sapiens). Thus, the man’s brain won’t actively expend energy on ACTUALLY finding a woman to sleep with.
At face value, this makes sense. When a man ejaculates, he’s purging testosterone from his body. It takes some time to restore the semen that was lost/wasted.
Imagine if a man, who practiced NoFap, always had a full tank down there. Logically, his brain would redirect the testosterone that would otherwise be used to refill his testicles, right? It just makes sense. A lot of notable athletes have practiced semen retention to optimize their performances.
On a spiritual level, the masturbation-prone man is bonding with a woman that isn’t even in the bedroom. He’s not connecting with this invisible smoke show on an emotional level first. Again, it’s fooling his brain into thinking it’s already accomplising its most fundamental purpose: to procreate.
While we’re still on the spiritual aspect of this. I was puzzled, for much of my life, about the practice of circumcision. What exactly is cutting off an infant’s loose skin supposed to do? It just makes the penis head exposed constantly.
Christ, that’s got to be uncomfortable. I’ve actually heard people refer to it as “genital mutilation.”
In recent years, though, I’ve come to discover that there’s a degree of objectivity in religious texts. There’s a verifiable reason for these teachings.
Don’t have sex with family members – Because it breaks bonds in families and complicates the offspring’s upbringing.
Women should wear concealed clothing – Let’s be honest here, a woman’s skin DOES cause a man’s libido to go crazy. I know, I know, I sound like a rapist-apologist and I apologize. But if you’re a guy: What’s the first thing you think of when you see a swimsuit model?
Yes, you can see my point, I’m sure.
I don’t want to belabor this, so let’s just cut right to circumcision (hehe, “cut”). WHY was circumcision mandated by the Abrahamic faiths in the first place? What was the objective purpose of it? And no, “sealing that covenant with God” is not the answer I’m looking for. There must be an objective reason.
Could masturbation have anything to do with it? When you’re removing the foreskin, the penis head becomes desensitized. A man trying to stroke his head in the privacy of his bedroom will suddenly have a difficult time.
What if, just what if, people back then KNEW the repercussions of wanton masturbation? Remember, people in the Biblical age were actually more connected to the world around them and more practical in their approach to things. They were wiser than we are.
What if they observed the inimical social and personal effects of a man jacking it?
Does jerking off cause men to lose their social confidence? Does it cause men to NOT chase women and fulfill their galactic obligation of reproducing?
I can’t speak for the guys that wrote the Torah, Bible, and Quran: I wasn’t alive back then. I also don’t have retroactive ESP. BUT…it is an intriguing thought, no?
What if the disgusting, inhumane act of circumcision was instituted with the best of intentions and to serve a valid societal purpose? Just what if…
I asked someone close to me, and he said the point of circumcision is to “keep the head clean.” Okay, fair enough. But you still have to consider the effect of desensitization down there.
Note: Said person disagrees with my take on this, and that’s fine.
So what do you guys think? Have any of you fine gentlemen tried NoFap before? What were the personal results for you? Let me know in the comments!
