17 Deadly Reasons Why You Should STOP Fapping TODAY

Why Should I Stop Fapping?

Have you ever pondered any of the following…

  • Should I stop fapping?
  • Why should I stop fapping?
  • Why should I stop watching porn?

Well, if so then this is the article for you because today we are going to cover all of those questions and you will for sure discover a few good reasons why you should stop fapping…

…and I have to warn you, you might find some of the reasons shocking!

Let's get to it…

Reason #1
It can give you erectile dysfunction!

I'll hit you with one of the biggest reasons why you should stop watching porn right from the start.

If you are not aware of it by now, it's about time you'll find out…

…yes, fapping to online porn can cause ED.

In other words, it can make you unable to get it up when you are going for sex with a real life person. This is called porn induced ED.

Now if you are a bit older, this may fly in the face of what we were told when growing up, since fapping in and of itself has never really caused erectile dysfunction in the past.

Heck, even fapping to those old fashioned porn magazines or VHS-tapes did not cause ED, but when it comes to porn there is one big change that has taken place since then…

…now we've got high speed internet porn, with streaming tube sites.

Porn tube sites are too stimulating for the brains reward system…

Those HD streaming porn sites are so stimulating for the brains reward system that they literally can cause physical brain changes.

It's because of the way we consume the porn today. Most guys only watch a porn clip for about 20-30 seconds, and then that clip becomes boring and so they switch to a new clip…again…again…and again. This is bad for the brain because it overrides the brains natural satiation mechanism.

The Constant clicking from scene to scene causes a numb pleasure respons…

It is that constant clicking form scene to scene that can override the brains natural satiation mechanism.

The dopamine levels are sky high for so long that the brain start protecting itself by reducing some of the dopamine receptors and this causes  desensitization…

…basically a numb pleasure response.

In addition to this the high levels of dopamine causes sensitized pathways to pixels on a screen. This menas that the guys are training their sexual response to become aroused by pixels instead of real life people.

Can this really happen?

Now some of you may say; this can't happen!

Well, perhaps not with the old fashioned way of consuming porn, but remember, today's high speed internet porn is a superstimulus and it is the sky high dopamine levels that rewires the brain.

You see, dopamine is really the motivation and LEARNING neurotransmitter. When dopamine is high, it teaches the brain where the reward lies…

…and in this case, the reward is the porn.

Millions of men are suffering from ED because of this…

The more a guy keeps doing this, the more likely it is that he develop porn induced erectile dysfunction.

Millions of men around the world are suffering with porn induced erectile dysfunction today, just because they did not know that today's super stimulating porn can cause problems…

…but now YOU know!

And you have to ask yourself, is fapping to porn really worth that?

Listen, porn will NEVER be able to satisfy you. It could, however, make it so that YOU will not be able to satisfy a women.

Reason #2
It can cause delayed ejaculation!

If fapping to porn has not yet caused ED for you then you are lucky, but do you know what the final stage is before porn induced ED sets in?…

…it's delayed ejaculation.

That's right!

If you have noticed that you have problems climaxing with a real life partner, then you should know that it is the desensitized pleasure center, that I talked about in “Reason #1”, that is causing you to feel numb.

This is the final step before ED sets in, and if you recognize yourself in this, your best bet is to stop fapping to porn right now.

There are real life women out there. Have sex with them instead, and from now on, say no to artificial sex in form of pixels on a screen.

Another sign that you are headed for sexual destruction is if you also have weak or sluggish erections in combination with low libido for real life people.

By the way, if you already have problems with weak and sluggish erections, take a look at the article Supplements during PMO review, as in that blog post, I share a natural product that really did wonders for my own erections, back when I was struggling with porn addiction myself.

Reason #3
Fapping increases your estrogen levels

A study made on rats show that frequent ejaculation caused an increase in estrogen receptors.

Do you realize what that means?

Say you are fapping ton a daily basis, well if so, you will for sure get an increase in estrogen receptors.

Now, estrogen itself binds to those receptors and if you have more of those receptors the net effect will be like you are having high estrogen levels.

Estrogen is the female sex hormone. Sure we need a bit of it, but we do not want too much of it…

…well, of course it depends on if you want to be less manly, more soft, with less manly traits. If so, then by all means, go ahead and increase your estrogen levels.

You see, when it comes to us men…

  • More testosterone is good!
  • More estrogen is bad!

Reason #4
NoFap increases your confidence!

The fourth reason why you should stop masturbating is also a good one.

You see, millions of men who start doing so called “nofap”, which means giving up masturbating to porn, are reporting many interesting benefits as a result…

…and one of those benefits is increased confidence.

There are biological reasons why NoFap increase confidence, but I'm not going to go into them in this article as I have already made several blog posts about that…

…just know that NoFap will increase your confidence!

If you want to take a deeper dive into why this is, you can read the article, Does NoFap really increase confidence?

Reason #5
NoFap can increase your physical strength

increased strength from nofap

Another cool reason why you should stop fapping is because NoFap literally increases your physical strength.

There may be several reasons for this, but one of them is because of the upregulated androgen receptors that follows after abstinens from ejaculation. The king of all hormones, testosterone, binds to the androgen receptors….

…this means, the more androgen receptors we have, the more effect we feel from the male sex hormone “testosterone”.  If you want to learn more about this, take a look at my article NoFap and gaining muscle. 

Just one more thing about this…

…do you really think it is a coincidence that elite fighters for centuries have been using abstinence as “a secret weapon” before an important fight?

Hell, no!

They knew it made them more aggressive, more focused and increased their physical and mental strength.

Reason #6
You will become more attracted to real life girls

Wen you stop fapping to online adult websites, your brain will rebalance itself.

This is a good thing as it means your sexual center will no longer be desensitized and in need for super hot porn starts to get you turned on.

Thousands and thousands of guys are reporting that, after they stopped fapping to porn, they started becoming much more attracted to “normal looking” girls in real life again…

…that's right. It no longer takes weird fetishes to turn them on.

Just a look and a smile from a “normal” woman can be enough to give them intense butterflies in the stomach…

…gotta love that!

Reason #7
You will need less sleep!

This one is surprising right?

How can giving up masturbation make you need less sleep?

Well, it's all about energy.

The energy in one ejaculation is the most concentrated form of energy you have. Think about it…

…one single ejaculation contains enough sperm to father a whole continent.

One of the absolute most common benefits guys who go on a NoFap journey are reporting is increased energy, and the explanation for this is pretty simple…

…more energy in your body and brain means less need for rest and sleep.

I talk more about this in the article Does NoFap affect sleep.

Reason #8
Giving up fapping will make you happier

Why should you stop fapping?

Well how about this; NoFap increases your baseline levels of happiness.

That's pretty profound if you think about it, because everything we do in life is because of two things…

  1. We want to avoid pain.
  2. We want to feel feelings of happiness or joy.

NoFap makes you happier because it changes the pleasure thermostat in your brain. I am not exaggerating at all because that is exactly what it does.

You see, we are back to dopamine receptors and the reward circuitry in your brain again…

…as you know by now, overconsumption of supernormal stimulus, like internet porn, causes a downregulation of those dopamine receptors.

Well, dopamine does it's magic by binding to those receptors and if you suddenly have fewer of them you will feel less pleasure and need more and more stimulating stuff to feel any pleasure at all, but don't make the mistake of thinking this only affects your porn sessions…

…no, it affects everything in your life. That's right, with less dopamine receptors in your reward system all the small stuff in life becomes more boring and stuff you previously enjoyed does not really do anything for you any longer. Fapping to porn has basically made you a more unhappy person.

Semen retention in and of itself makes you happier

Even if we don't throw porn into the mix, NoFap / semen retention in and of itself has the potential to make you happier.

The exact science behind why this happen, no one knows for sure. We still need more research looking into it.

Take a look at this very interesting video of Dave Asprey, where he talk about his experiment
with semen retention and how it increased his baseline happiness. 

So in the video above, Dave shares his result with semen retention and how it increased his energy, creativity and baseline levels of happiness….

…and here comes the real kicker; Dave was not even addicted to porn.

So if you, stop fapping to porn and you had developed addiction related brain changes you can expect to see a HUGE lift in your own happiness in life.

It could get worse before it gets better…

Just know that it if you have developed an addiction, it will probably get worse before it gets better due to the withdrawal symptoms and the so called flatline…

…I talk more about this in the article PMO withdrawal sypmtoms.

If you found Dave's video interesting then you should really get his new book “Game Changers”. It is one of the best books I have ever listened to (I listen to my books on Audible)…

….and in one chapter of the book he talks in more detail about his experimentation with semen retention and all the science behind it.  In that chapter you will find super interesting things like…

  • The orgasm hangover (what is it and how does it affect us)
  • How semen retention can, by some strange force, make girls much more attracted to you
  • How nofap affects of hormones
  • How having sex without ejaculating affects your testosterone levels
  • How not fapping can supercharge your energy and make you happier

Okay, let's move on to the next reason why you should stop masturbating to porn…

Reason #9
The most successful men throughout history did not masturbate

Now if you quote my words here, make sure you do it correctly and don't twist my words…

…I am NOT saying that one can not become successful if fapping. I am just pointing out that some of the biggest historical figures used the power of sexual transmutation to reach their goals.

Sexual transmutation simply means that you take all the enormous energy increase you get from not fapping and then you channel that into a laser like focus, aimed at your most important goals.

Here are some examples of powerful men who used sexual transmutation…

  • Steve Jobs
  • Sir Isac Newton
  • Leonardo Da Vinci
  • Nikola Tesla
  • Mohammad Ali
  • Socrates
  • Al Pacino
  • Mike Tyson
  • Pythagoras
  • Plato
  • Sigmund Freud
  • Ludvig Van Beethoven

..and so on. The list is endless.

Remember now, I did not say there are no successful people out there that masturbate, because there are certainly plenty of them out there….

..I am merely pointing out that if you manage to channel you sexual energy into achieving your goals, like the people on that list, you will most likely be able to achieve things so big that they both scare you and make you excited at the same time.

Reason #10
Women will become more attracted to you

This is something that hundreds of thousands of men are reporting from all over the world…

…after a few weeks into their NoFap journey, they start to notice more attention from the opposite sex.

It's kind of ironic really. If we make a big effort to NOT waste our seed, it is like women want it even more.

If you are sceptical when reading this, you should be,  and I don't blame you one bit because it IS difficult to explain. No one knows exactly what's going on, but it is like women can sense something when a man walks around with a fully loaded “weapon”…

…well, it would not be that far fetched to assume that mother nature and biology have somehow made women more sensitive when something like this is going on…

…after all, nature is all about one thing: to reproduce and carry our genes over to the next generation. And what could be closer related to reproduction than semen?

So is there some mysterious force involved or not?

No one knows, but there are some biological things that could play a part and I try to give my stab at explaining this with my own speculations in the article NoFap and attraction.

Reason #11
You will get harder erections!

This is a good reason for giving up fapping, don't you think?

And it is 100% true.

When you stop fapping to porn your sexual center in the brain becomes more sensitive again and especially more sensitive to real life people.

This means that the sexual center starts sending stronger signals to your penis when it believes sex is a possibility, and thus, you will react by getting fuller, harder and stronger erections.

This, along with the risk of getting erectile dysfunction if continuing fapping to porn, is the reason why most guys stop fapping to porn…

…and who can blame them!

By the way, if you already have problems with weak and sluggish erections, take a look at the article Supplements during PMO review, as in that blog post, I share a natural product that really did wonders for my own erections, back when I was struggling with porn addiction myself.

Reason #12
You will get better short term memory!

Another good reason to stop masturbating to porn is because when you quit, you will get a sharper brain with a better functioning short term memory.

So how can this be?

Remember how fapping to porn causes a disrupted dopamine system in your brain. Well, guess what nerutransmitter is the key player in forming memories?

Thats right, it is dopamine.

Dopamine is highly involved in short term memory function, and if your dopamine system is disrupted, so is your ability to store memories.

When considering this then obviously we start realizing that giving up porn will give you a sharper brain.

So, if you are still in school, this should be reason enough why you should stop watching porn. Wait a minute, even if you are working or have your own business, it's reason enough to stop fapping to porn…

…heck, EVRYONE, wants a sharper brain so it's reason enough for every man out there.

Reason #13
You will get less anxiety!

Another big benefit guys see when they stop fapping to porn is reduced anxiety and especially reduced social anxiety.

One reason for this is that the dopamine receptors will grow denser after quitting, and you might find it interesting to know that studies made on monkeys have shown that social status correlates with more dopamine receptors.

There are many reasons for this, but the increase in confidence that follows when doing NoFap is in and of itself powerful enough for guys to see the social anxiety drop as a result.

However, there is much more going on and if you are interested in how this happens, and how you can speed things up to reduce your own anxiety, take a look at the article NoFap and social anxiety.

Reason #14
It will make you last longer in bed!

Not a bad reason why you should stop watching porn right?

Now this benefit is different for every guy out there, but the fact is, thousands of guys are reporting how they can last much longer in bed after giving up fapping to porn.

You see, nowadays most guys are sitting in front of the computer when fapping. The problem with that when fapping in a sitting position we start to tense the pc muscle. This is bad, because it causes a permanent tight pelvic floor. This, in turn, leads to poor blod flow to the penis and the tightness also causes premature ejaculation.

For some guys, giving up fapping to porn will automatically fix this, but unfortunately not everyone is that lucky. They will have to proactively stretch and work on the pelvic flor to get rid of the premature ejaculation problem…

…if you have problems with this, or if you are struggling with PE in general, take a look at the article Does nofap help you last longer in bed. In that article I also share 10 tips on how to overcome premature ejaculation AND how to fix the tight pelvic floor muscles for guys who developed problems like that.

Reason #15
It will give you better skin!

To be honest I don't know why this happens.

It could be because the frequent fapping messes with your hormonal balance, which it does, and that in and of itself causes pimples and unclear skin…

…or, it could be something with sperm production and how frequent fapping is wasting valuable nutrients. In case you didn't know, the production of new sperm is actually a pretty taxing process for the male body…

…so much so that many researchers are starting to believe that this is the reason for why women on average live longer then man.

Whatever the reason behind guys getting better skin when they give up masturbating is, on thing is for sure; thousands of guys, from all around the world, are reporting that the better skin phenomenon.

Reason #16
It will make you love yourself more!

When you set out to do something that is difficult and you actually manage to pull it off, your confidence and self-esteem grow as a result.

Now, giving up porn and doing semen retention for a long period of time is far from easy. In fact, it may very well be one of the most difficult things you'll ever do in your whole life…

…but the fact that it is difficult only makes the reward bigger when you successfully overcome your bad fapping habit. And one of the biggest reward is increased self-esteem and self love.

You will start respecting yourself much more and no longer view yourself as a kid in a mans body, and you know what…

…with more self respect, other people will start respecting you more as well.

I personally believe there are more reasons behind the increased self esteem than it just being a result of mastering a difficult thing…

I believe that NoFap and semen retention in and of itself creates this feeling core masculinity deep down in us that our self-esteem and self love suddenly can stand firm and steadily upon.

Reason #17
You will get more respect from people around you!

This ties into the previous reason, “reason #16”, that we just talked about.

If you respect yourself then of course others will respect you more as well.

And this is not just me speculating here. When guys have managed to go a few weeks into their nofap journey, many of them are starting to report this benefit.

I don't find it strange at all actually.

Think about it, if you were to improve your life and yourself, getting more of all these 17 benefits I talked about in this blog post, who would not treat you with more respect, even if they have no clue what your “secret” behind all those improvements is.
