From all my research and experiences in abstaining from PMO in the last 2-3 years, i've noticed something quite interesting. In almost every report of someone who's stopped for >90 days, they've become stronger, more confident, more attractive, etc. But this doesn't happen to someone who only goes half-way and quits Porn only, or Porn and Masturbation only (still have sex). They don't experience the benefits to such an extent. Usually, it's just a lessening of brain fog or social anxiety for those who just stopped Porn and Masturbation.
Which leads me to conclude that there must be something in orgasm that saps the vitality of man. Either it's the nutritional loss of semen, or the dopamine hit of the orgasm itself which causes this loss. (The vast majority of men who abstained for more than 90 days and myself included, never seemed to have wet dreams, so i don't know which is the major cause, but both are a factor).
In other words, rather than just focusing on Porn, PMO as a whole should be viewed as something that should be minimised from our lives as much as possible. (Porn and masturbation preferably removed totally).
Reasons why masturbation and sex after rebooting is best avoided:
1. Masturbation is the cause of a continous loss of essential nutrients within semen, which may take many days or weeks for the body to replenish. However, due to the constant hits of dopamine each time someone masturbates, they are already too desensitized, so their withdrawal period is not too long (usually 1-3 days). It's the nutrient replenishment which is the problem here.
2. Sex involves the loss of sexual fluids also, but the loss is not as serious due to the absorbtion of vaginal secretions into the penis (though this is not in equilibrium. you will lose more than you gain). However, when someone has sex with their partner less than once a week, and do not masturbate (see above), their replenished dopamine receptors will take the full hit of orgasm 'rewards' and the withdrawal period that follows will cause you to have a week of mild headaches and brain fog. (But then you return back to your partner again for a new dopamine hit!).
So obviously we can conclude we have only 3 options here if we want a (relatively at least) virile and healthy lives:
1. Frequent sex with a heavy diet rich in vitamins and minerals (minimises nutrient loss and being 'too sensitive'.)
2. Karezza (Ideal).
3. Celibacy until marriage.
With the frequent sex option, there will still be side effects and a loss of vitality. But it will be minimal (assuming you have left Porn and masturbation behind as you should).
With Karezza, this would be ideal route. As it (or so it appears) is sex with none of these drawbacks but many benefits such as closer, more intimate encounters. But, to be blunt, having sex karezza style with a girl who is not in a long-term relationship with you, will be a bit of an awkward disaster. She won't have a clue what's going on, and think you're a bit of a sexual retard (Lets be honest. What would you think if your girlfriend only wanted to have tantric sex or something else you may be unfamiliar with). Explaining to her why you can't have sex 'the normal way' (and prefer an interesting new technique you found online) is going to be difficult as well, unless you've been with her long enough to be sure she won't take it the wrong way.
So, that leaves Celibacy until marriage (or at least until you're in a committed and happy relationship. But if you wait that long, you may as well save it for marriage and make it that extra special for both of you on that day). Where you can implement Karezza into your married sex life.
That's my thinking anyway. What are everyone's thoughts? Thanks for reading.
