I did a thirty day no fap challenge in October 2017, side note - I thought about just putting October but who knows when you’ll read this so yea staying present in the writing, check. I felt this being my first blog post of the year and ever I would talk about the no fap challenge , if you’re like “hold up von, what the fuck is a no fap challenge?” it’s basically no choking your chicken (also known as no masturbation) for 30 days.
My situation was low-key easy because I was in Atlanta at the time and I was focused on sight-seeing and meeting people. Like, I didn’t have time to watch porn, between hanging with friends, concerts, festivals, comedy shows and sleeping. And I also knew there was good chance of no sex being I’m not good at initiating one night stands and the thought of a road STD scares me.
I never thought I had a problem with masturbation and I still don’t. My only issues with jacking off in life were two things in my younger years timing and getting caught. For some reason I would always try to rub out a morning wood before school, then end up getting ready late and having to run for the bus. Or I would try to relax sometimes after school, pop in a DVD from the liquor store (which made you look like a thirsty creep with in the eyes of the foreign cashier) and potentially get caught by a family member. Like I got caught by my cousin, I slowed downon it for a minute because I was soembarrassed, I remember it like it was yesterday, going in on myself, it was dead silent in the house, I kept the volume low so I could hear any entry, this guy pops the door open, I stuff my junk back in my pants just in time, TV off, but it’s still evident because suave lotion on the bottom of my shirt, lotion on my hand and I just looked guilty. Eyes locked, me watching him analyzing the situation, all I could do was try to get my hands him, advise him to forget what he knew happened but he was too fast as he ran down the street screaming he was telling everybody.But hey every guy gets caught so it was nothing serious, but back to my point I participated in the challenge because I saw a YouTube vid with Jim Carey, one of favorite entertainers of all time talking about these awesome benefits which I didn’t see at all during the process.
If you’re curious to know what the benefits are:
• Better social confidence – I’m good in that department, no Kanye but I do alright.
• Energy – who doesn’t want more of that?
• Concentration – I usually come to my senses after a good nut (for those foreign to slang ejaculations resolve).
• Mental Acuity – now we talking, no Adderall.
• Sexual prowess – ok.
This when it gets outrageous, below.
• Emotional stability – how sway?
• Attractiveness to the opposite sex – duh fuck?
Yea, it got real naive and goofy.
I been jacking off a long time since the days of the videotape, I remember finding my uncles secret stash of black tapes with gold labels, I was 10 or 11 years of age and not one time as a straight male was I not attracted to the opposite sex. I remember my first major crush was because she favored this pornstar from this porno scene I watched repeatedly as a youth.
To conclude this post, masturbation is fine but just do it in moderation. Everything needs balance, you can’t keep pointing the finger, “its porn’s fault, it’s this, it’s that….”, if you’re not reaching your full potential it’s because of what’s happening in your mind, not in your pants. Its 2018 people,we got to be stronger because this is the year of becoming, so stop making excuses and be.
