RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious
That's interesting Jariel. Ancient tantric practitioners did a similar thing. They believed that everytime you ejaculate, you let out a little bit of life force and spirit energy known as chi and shen. I'm forgetting a lot of things but semen retention is supposed to increase your life expectancy and health, real out there concepts. I think its called sexual alchemy.

On another note, Ive been thinking about no fap lately as a concept. I can't help but wonder if I'd have seen my fapping as such a big problem if I never watched the YBOP videos from the tedtalk.

For instance, I think back to high school and earlier years when I had zero knowledge of nofap. Jerking it didn't seem to affect my mood, social life, or self perception. And I jerked it a lot! It was only after the tedtalk video that I really began to feel the lethargy and overall shitiness that they talked about. It almost feels like if no one told me about it, then nothing would have changed. Only once it was brought to my attention did I notice all the negative symptoms.

But I also need to keep in mind that I didn't get laid at all in HS, so I had no sexual experiences to reference how it would have affected my performance; had I been sexually active at that time. Maybe if I got a girl in my room back then it would have manifested itself, and I would have had to find out the hard way.
