First, as a disclaimer I think ‘fap’/fapping is a utterly stupid term, I am using it simply because that is the conventional internet word for it. That being said, in case you don’t know what this is, it is a forced celibacy of refraining from sex – mostly from porn.
I have an interest in sex from a scientific point of view that is surprisingly lacking in the world, so have dove into this pretty hard with research and self-experimenting.
It has different levels of just no porn, or no sex at all etc. The real mode is no touching/orgasm/porn at all. It is claimed that after about 90 days you become human again, no more ED, you can talk to girls, you can get laid etc etc.
Now, here is where it gets tricky, because I definitely think that mass porn use can mess up your brain as well as imprint new fetishes (which makes me think being gay is much more of a choice than liberalism wants us to think) but there is a logical fallacy going on here, see if you can find it regarding the cures you susposedly get for your given up the habit.
This is a form of giving up control – and giving it straight to girls. This is the darkest truth I have realized about this movement, (I don’t want to come off as pro-porn, but the alternative I think is worse) is that YOUR SEXUAL AND MENTAL RELEASE NOW COMES FROM A RANDOM JACKPOT OF A WOMAN.
You can read on reddit endless points of ‘finally got laid, IM CURED’ or ‘girl bumped into me, she knows how much man I am.’ This is blue pill noobery 101, where the girl is the sole arbitrator of reward and validation. ‘You are not a loser jason, after all suzy touched you dick!’
This is hidden of course in all the talk of curing erectile dysfunction, ‘lower voice’, more muscles etc etc, but by and large the over-riding goal of having sex with a girl. It is total anti-MGTOW style of that your loserness is only cured when you have blown a load into some whore you were desperate enough to convince.
I am harping on this a bit, but it is critical to understand how dangerous this underpinning of the goal is. This is literally a clone of shaming that the highschool nerd would suddenly be acceptable if he had a girlfriend. That the fapper is now such a man because he has got his little dick wet.
It is disgusting. With modern girls endlessly capricious, slutty, diseased, ego whoring, flaky, and out right manipulative; signing up for a kibble of attention from them is the height of stupidity.
Heh…and I haven’t even got into the science behind abstinence, which unfortunately very sparse, there is the ‘famous’ china study of a 7 day temporary testosterone boost that goes away (small sample size also); and one that studied for a few weeks but had a lot of problems too. THAT IS IT. It is not conclusive one way or the other, that is a fact.
What is not debateable though is when as a man you give women the key to your validation you are in for a world of hurt.
