90 Day NoFap Challenge

    Posts: 170
    I'm starting this new challenge thread because I'm having problems completing the 21 day challenge (no ejaculation for 21 days) because of wet dreams as of late. I've learned quite a bit from the 21 day challenge, even though I never beat it, and I don't want to abandon it entirely. Maybe I'll manage to complete the 21 day while doing this challenge.

    This 90 day NoFap challenge means no masturbation or looking at porn normally. I'm going to go for these two goals, but allow aneros sessions. The typical benefits of the 90 day NoFap challenge I believe are similar to those of the 21 day challenge, but the 90 day challenge doesn't reset if you have a wet dream or do something else to ejaculate without masturbation, such as sexual intercourse. I haven't had intercourse yet, and cannot be certain if I will during the course of this challenge. Not having intercourse while doing this challenge is known as "hard mode" since you can't have the sexual release of ejaculation unless you have a wet dream or something.

    For more information visit the Redit page: http://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap/
    If you sign up, you can get a badge that keeps track of how many days you've done.

    Anyone is welcome to partake in the challenge, try their own similar challenge, and post in this thread as long as it's reasonably on topic.

    Let's learn more about ourselves together!


    I'm going to keep track of my wet dream ejaculations as well, in case I manage to get past 21 days.
    Day 2
    Last masturbation: June 3rd
    Last ejaculation: June 5

    @Jspad --- Best of luck on your challenge! I couldn't ever go that long without ejaculating!

    Thanks Theme_Gasm! The goal isn't to keep from ejaculating though, so it's not that impossible. :)

    Since I've started masturbating for over an hour and, in the process, teaching myself better ejaculatory control, I've found that not only have my sexdreams increased which I certainly welcome as it's the only time I'm 'getting some' but what otherwise would have been wetdreams become drydreams. I've even had a dream where I could do something that I can't do in waking state yet, namely to pass the point of no return and clench down hard on my pc muscles and have the orgasm without the ejaculate. At the time I thought shit I'm going to have to change my underpants, but it was completely dry. That was a while back now I just have sex with lots of dry orgasms as I really have during my sessions.

    So I'm not really sure what your goal is to no fapping, porn etc, but if it's to lessen the frequency of your wetdreams this is possibly not the best way to go about it.

    I did the 21 day challenge and it was hard to get through literally lol but I finally got through it. But I did it while riding and edging a lot. Not looking at porn or watching porn or getting a hot image pop up on my computer would be so crazy to even try. Good luck though. Would love to know the out come of it all.

    @Ehm This is about the experience, learning new things more or less. Also, after a really long time doing this, a lot of people get what they call on the Redit page "superpowers." Things such as increased energy, ability to concentrate, social confidence and abilities, etc.

    Like I said before about not fapping for a year, if it had given me superpowers, increased concentration/confidence/abilities I would have known. I can vouch for increased energy, at least....perhaps it's more that I have less energy after ejaculating.
    If there's anything to the whole no fap craze it's saving your essence.
    Taoists have been saying for millennia there are health benefits to not ejaculating, but orgasms are very healthy. The interesting thing about this ancient knowledge is that recent science researching telomeres(shortening of telomeres is meant to cause aging)have found that spermcells are the only cells in the human body where the telomeres don't shorten!!!
    I've read sperm is also meant to have all kinds of health benefits for women(or gay men) swallowing it or spreading it on their skin.
    Mantak Chia talks about sperm breathing; circulating sperm energy to the organs and somehow rejuvenating them.
    So perhaps it's just a coincidence or these taoists masters from centuries ago had some scientific wisdom long forgotten?

    So just like orgasm and ejaculating are often used interchangeably the same is probably the case with fapping and ejaculating coz I definitely don't have any loss of energy from fapping(&not ejaculating) sometimes it's even the opposite like with the Aneros.
    I have worried about the precum but know I just swallow it . I think I'll do that the next time I ejaculate as well, it's full of nutrients and it is after all part of the magic in creating life, it might do something as well to counteract the lethargy and loss of energy/lifeforce after ejaculating

    That is very interesting @Ehm, brilliant observation!

    I too have been swallowing my ejaculate after the first few times I’ve masturbated, i believe that it is good for the body, may as well not let it go to waste.

    I don't want to hijack this thread so one last thing about this.
    Every cell in our body has this ability, but for some reason it's only in the spermcells where it's turned on.
    They've already done experiments with mice where they've actually reversed the aging, i.e. made old mice young again and made the telomeres longer. These mice started acting like young mice again!
    Some say we're very close to finding a way to do this with humans as well.
    Seeing oldage as a disease (to be cured) is quite a recent development. The thing with oldage is it makes you a lot more vulnerable to all kinds of diseases. Also it's not that younger people can't get cancer or whatever and die it's just a lot less likely, so basing it on probability then you could live to a 1000 and by then science will probably have ways to counteract the worst kinds of diseases.

    It would have interesting implications, like would people still reproduce? what would it be like having your parents/grandparents youthful? How would the brain cope, it's still say functioning like a 25 year olds, can the brain handle all those memories that would normally require many lifetimes? But who knows what stemcell research will bring by then.....

    Anyway back to the no fapping discussion!

    @BigOluver,
    Hearty congratulations on completing the challenge! IMHO, you have achieved something worthwhile.

    Have you thought about repeating the challenge?

    @Pommie actually I am. Today is Sunday and have been cumming all weekend and on Monday the challenge will start again.

    Day 5, checking in.

    @Ehm  Very interesting, cool stuff!

    Anyway, I can't say how not masturbating long term will effect me since I haven't tried it this long before, but at least haven't felt that "no motivation" mood for some time. Also, one way I might benefit is the mindset of not focusing on my penis. It's good to try new things, and see what you can learn. I feel like I'm developing more as a person lately, being more adventurous and motivated.

    Day 7

    Last night, before going to bed I was feeling sexual feelings in my nipples and groin/anal areas. These feelings were little more than slight feelings, but besides feeling nice they were kind of uncomfortable at the same time. Not that they didn't feel nice, but it seemed to urge me towards sexual release. Even so, I won't masturbate, as I want to grow these kinds of feelings. One thing that was interesting was that if I concentrated on my penis or some sexual fantasy, I would get a somewhat pleasurable feeling in my penis, a bit better defined than what I felt in my rear end or chest.

    Start of day 10

    Yesterday I was having little pleasurable feelings from my rear end regularly, like every few minutes. Had a dream last night that involved looking at porn. Looking at porn in a dream is different than having a wet dream oddly enough. It seems that each time I have a wet dream it involves an actual woman, but when it involves porn, not much happens beyond me getting somewhat aroused. I guess my brain misses porn, but knows by instinct what real sex is.

    That must have created quite the mess

    It's a funny thing, I've been abstaining from the Aneros this year. It coincides with thoughts I've been having about man having a male(penis) and female nature. I've got nothing to back this up but it got me wondering if using the Aneros reduces the production of testosteron since it's the female side that's getting stimulated. The irony for me is I hardly jerked off at all pre Aneros and then this trend continued when I was using the Aneros for years. And reading about all the old men on the forum with ED I started thinking how silly I was not using my penis now I still can. And the simple fact is that my rewiring hasn't only made me understand how to get pleasure out of my anal region but I'm increasingly discovering how much pleasure I can get from penile stimulation without the ejaculation.
    Perhaps there's nothing to the ancient taoist ideas and methods, but in a way it makes sense conserving sperm and daily testicle massage (allegedly for increased spermcount/potency and higher testosteron)

    I think it's psychological as well as these years I was doing Aneros with a limp dick and I was rarely ever getting hard I even thought my dick was shrinking with inactivity, then it's great to see it hard an throbbing and feel the heat emanating from it....I definitely think there's something to the sperm breathing as well, coz sperm energy's cold. After I did my 1+ hours jerking off my balls and dick were quite warm and it's quite warm in the house anyhow, I did the spermbreathing and my balls felt very cool after that.

    Anyway, just sayin'.... when I wanna get slutty and feminine I take (the female drug) marijuana and then I can lie back do fuck all and receive pleasure.
    My theory is miracles happen when + and - combines, in one case it's life, in the other case when it happens within man it can potentially be something even more miraculous. So my reasoning is use jerking off ball massage and anything else to increase male essence and then combine it with the sacred herb to open the slutty passive female side. Then combine + and - as only a man can. Perhaps that's why they say God created man in his image

    @Ehm,
    Quoting "I started thinking how silly I was not using my penis now I still can. And the simple fact is that my rewiring hasn't only made me understand how to get pleasure out of my anal region but I'm increasingly discovering how much pleasure I can get from penile stimulation without the ejaculation."

    This and much of the post's content really needs the be explored on a separate thread. I think it is too important to be lost in this thread. Much of what you say has been occurring to me. I only hope others who are "fully" operational can sort of leap forward on both feet while they can. We have dragged ourselves up to be Ejaculation (scarcity) based instead of pleasure based (abundance).

    Start of day 14

    Last couple of Aneros sessions were fun, and full of nice feelings. Also lately I get a lot more nice feelings randomly throughout my day, and they feel stronger than usual. I consider these smaller but frequent feelings as good as masturbation. That paired with having better overall energy and motivation throughout my day makes the trade-off, I believe, more than worth it.

    End of day 14

    It seems as though sometimes I get the ball rolling (a period of time in which I can feel pleasurable feelings at random in various areas) and the rest of the time I don't. Perhaps the missing ingredient in my development has been not being adequately aroused. Usually I'm not all that sexual beyond masturbation and porn, but lately I don't have to try very hard, or even try at all to cause this elusive form of stimulation to occur. I think half of it is getting away from powerful stimulation, such as porn or masturbation, making me more sensitive. The other half is slowly and naturally letting my libido gradually come forth, rather than forcing it.

    End of day 20.

    Thinking of quitting this challenge.
    I believe getting away from porn and masterbation for awhile has made me more sensitive. I'm thinking masterbating once a week might be good. I've learned what it's like to be patient and let my libido build over time instead of forcing it, and I think what I've done so far has helped me to rewire.
