Today is the 8th, so we’re going to say you’ve probably already failed if No Nut November was something you thought would be interesting to attempt.
If you don’t know, No Nut November is a bit of an internet fad that grew to popularity by the #nofap community of Reddit in 2017. The premise is that withholding from ‘spanking the monkey’ for the whole month will sharpen your mental state, along with a host of other benefits but…
Does withholding from wanking actually help you?
Lets tackle why this began a thing. Some people reckon ‘sperm retention’ aids with boosting testosterone which has a flow on effect to your mood and physical well-being. There’s not really any harm in abstaining, but the science still needs work to back up these claims.
Nocturnal emissions, more commonly known as wet dreams, are a way for the body to clear out old sperm. Your man juice has an expiration date so if you haven't fired your shot in a while your body gets rid of the old stuff while you sleep so the jizz on tap stays fresh.
If you withhold for a month, its more than likely your body is going to take over and out with the old, in with the new, as they say. If that’s the case… where exactly was the retention?
If that’s not enough to make you think the whole exercise is a bit pointless, there is actually some science base benefits for applying a healthy dose of self love to you self.
