Well, I suppose so, yes

The flippantly named NoFap community has gained a strange prominence since it was founded in 2011 by Pittsburgh web developer Alexander Rhodes. Inspired by a small study that suggested that male testosterone levels rose after seven days of abstinence from ejaculation, followers avoid masturbation in order to “reboot” their brains.

Not quite sure what the end result of the rebooting will be but reasonably certain it will happen.

Even among noodle armed snowflakes a week’s entire abstinence will have the average 18 year old male leaking testosterone through the eyeballs. Might not be an entirely happy rebooting……

  1. the NoFap movement, are part of a generation that has grown up with extreme sexual content only ever a few clicks away.

    This is true, innit?

    For most of human history, most people had little access to mucky pictures. Before the internet, you were lucky to get a glimpse of tits in The Sun or a damp copy of RAZZLE found in a bush at the park. Maybe a Betamax copy of CONFESSIONS OF A WINDOW CLEANER. It wasn’t much more sophisticated than Stig drawing crude stick figures of Australopithecines Gone Wild.

  2. Well i suppose so yes too, but it got a bit wierd right at the end there with Katy’s struggle to reconcile her contradictory ideas whilst simultaneously trying to get them down our throat.
    1 porno bad obvs.
    2. boosting masculinity bad obvs.
    3. This voluntary subscription 95% male so bad obvs.
    4. Female self control good obvs
    5. Women communing with a 95% male community bad, obvs
    Conclusion no fap bad obvs, except women obvs.

  3. “For most of human history”

    For most of human history – we were living national geographic, not perving over its pages.

    not totally my view but still Bart simpon’s quip springs to mind- if you don’t watch it how are you going to be de-sensitised to it?

  4. HB – Truth in jest tho, do we want people to be desensitised to videos of Japanese businessmen doing stuff that would’ve given Mary Whitehouse a stroke to a transgender midget in a squirrel costume?

    Not to mention the really kinky stuff, like taking the missus up the wrong ‘un. (It’s for pooping ONLY, weirdos)

    I agree with St. Augustine on the subject of chastity and continence, but this is redonkulous. Treeza had absolutely the wrong idea about what to do about it, but porn may turn out to be a non-trivial social problem. I wonder how many late-stage trannies are driven to dissolution by their autogynephile fap addiction – probably lots.

  5. Inspired by a small study that suggested that male testosterone levels rose after seven days of abstinence from ejaculation, followers avoid masturbation in order to “reboot” their brains.

    So instead of doing the fap and then being able to concentrate on work or family or whatever for 15 minutes or so a day, we are supposed to not fap and then spend the entire week thinking about sex?

    If that’s a ‘reboot’, include me out.

  6. Porn non-trivial eh? i’ve got a feeling blaming porn is going to be at least as serious a non-trivial social problem. Not least because censorship doesn’t help. You could take your example of Japanese and conclude them totally depraved but also mundanely pixelated. Perhaps there is a link between the two?

    Anyway we don’t want to get back to most of our history,, we want to make sure we stay in the highlights reel. National Geographic was titilating because high civilisation corrals sexuality, in a way not required for semi nomadic small tribal life. In one sense, as Tim regularly points out, internet and the the bevvy of willing performing artistes make corralling that sexuality easier not harder.

  7. Steve,

    “HB – Truth in jest tho, do we want people to be desensitised to videos of Japanese businessmen doing stuff that would’ve given Mary Whitehouse a stroke to a transgender midget in a squirrel costume?”

    I don’t see the harm in it. I’ve watched Question Time, Eastenders and Strictly Come Dancing, and I don’t think I suffered great harm. They’re about as banal as that stuff.I suspect people who go beyond seeing weird porn and thinking “WTF” and get into “this is my bag” are already messed up.

  8. You’ve done it now Steve. Should never have mentioned squirrel costumes on this – what have you unleashed?
