Way back in 2011, some genius thought it was a great idea to devote an entire month to abstinence from masturbation and sex with “No Nut November.” Supporters claimed that a masturbation and sex-free month will lead to greater mental clarity, decreasing your dependence on porn, increasing your testosterone and energy. Is there any substance to these outlandish claims? Or, do these assumptions fall short? The scientific evidence will show that it is actually harmful to avoid having sex and touching yourself. So, get your squirrel and Eazy-E on, and don’t stop chasing that nut!
We’ve all heard the phrase “blue balls.” When you abstain from sex after sexual arousal, this can cause scrotal pain. Life already kicks you in the balls enough as it is, who wants blue balls for an entire month?
If you keep holdin’ back your little jimmies, eventually they get bored and tired. Dr. Rina Malik states: “As you abstain from sex, sperm number and volume increases over time, but the quality of sperm decreases.” So, guys keep the good times flowin’!
Multiple studies now show that testosterone does not increase from abstinence in the long term. Some studies did show an improvement in the short term, but it was not sustained. So, stay calm, carry on, and keep on masturbating.
We’ve all been there—you dream of an old flame, or your subconscious creates the perfect scenario with that woman in the red dress, or your hot boss, and you have no control over your body. Wet dreams may ruin your No-Nut November plans, so why spend all of your energy trying to avoid your next orgasm?
Your Pelvic floor muscles help control your bowel movements, urination, and other sexual movements, and if you’re having difficulty relaxing your pelvic floor muscles, this could be due to not letting yourself ejaculate normally or abstaining from cumming altogether! Your pelvic floor muscles could get overly tight due to not relaxing when you want to come!
