So, does nofap really work, or is it just all in your head?
In this article, I want to talk about nofap and if it actually helps to attract more girls.
As far as I know, there is no scientific study that definitively concludes the commonly believed benefits of nofap.
But, there are a few studies that support its potential benefits on reducing brain fogginess, reducing sexual dysfunction, and improvement in confidence level.
You can easily access all of that information by doing a simple search on Google, so this article is not going to be heavily focused on what the science says about nofap.
I will, however, offer my personal experience with nofap and how it completely transformed my life for the better.
Make sure you don’t miss the last part of this article as I go into detail about why nofap helps you to attract girls.
With that out of the way, let’s get started.
I am sure a lot of men can relate, but I used to struggle massively with porn addiction.
It reached a point where I was spending four to five hours of my day on watching porn.
If I had to take a guess, this chronic addiction to porn was mostly like due to boredom I was experiencing at the time.
I didn’t really do much growing up apart from playing video games, and I wasn’t the most active kid either, so it was easy for me to become addicted to porn.
But to be fair, I do remember this one time when I was in elementary school (I was around 10-years-old), and I went into the bathroom to ‘relieve’ myself.
So it is possible I may have just been a horny little kid.
As with any addiction, my porn addiction started out as an occasional occurrence, but it slowly turned into a daily habit that I couldn’t stop to save my life.
Whenever I felt bored or I would feel down, I’d just go back to watching porn for hours.
So, what was the turning point for me to give nofap a shot?
I can’t pinpoint the exact date, but I remember stumbling upon a video that went into details about all of the benefits of nofap.
At the time I came across that video, I was already starting to become concerned about how much time I was wasting watching porn.
I had tried quitting porn multiple times, but it would only last for a few days.
When I became informed of the benefits of nofap, it gave me a new reason to give another go at quitting porn.
From doing my research, I found out that one of the potential benefits of nofap is supposed to be an improvement in mental clarity.
I was in school during that time, and I noticed I struggle a lot with maintaining my focus when I tried to read, or when I tried to pay attention in lectures.
So, I figured it may help with my school performance.
And that is how I got into the World of nofap.
The first few days were a living hell as I experienced an intense withdrawal effect.
I would wake up with a raging boner every morning, and I felt this intense desire to just release everything.
I’d literally roll around on the bed in agony for hours because it was that difficult to contain myself.
But, I also noticed the benefits that came along with being on nofap.
I felt an increase in my energy levels throughout the day.
I also noticed I was able to maintain better eye contact with people (which I previously struggled with due to anxiety).
Those changes were more than enough to motivate me to continue despite rough times.
And this may be a coincidence, but it was also around the time I started nofap that I met my first girlfriend, and finally lost my virginity at the age of 26 years old.
I do believe it played a part in attracting my first girlfriend since I was more alive and present during a conversation (compared to pre-nofap).
I also noticed a positive effect on the quality of my workout since I began nofap.
Prior to nofap, I used to get drained quickly during my workout, and it was difficult for me to sustain the intensity of my workout.
But, I noticed I can lift heavier for a longer period of time since I went on nofap.
And of course, I can’t forget about a better mental clarity and an improvement in focus (which was the major benefit I was hoping for when I started nofap).
I noticed I was able to actually read books and articles without having to check my phone every 30 seconds.
This was probably the biggest (and the most important) benefit I’ve personally experienced.
My lack of ability to focus had a significantly negative impact on the quality of my life, whether it be studying for school, following instructions, or performing at a job interview.
So, it was literally a lifesaver to re-gain my mental clarity.
I wanted to further elaborate on this point because I know a lot of men who are considering nofap struggle to maintain good eye contact (especially with girls).
Your eye contact is vitally important when you are interacting with other people.
It helps you to build connections with people better, and it also allows you to appear more confident if you are able to maintain good, steady eye contact.
This is especially important when it comes to attracting girls.
A lot of men who are considering nofap struggle with social anxiety.
Maintaining eye contact with another human being is about the toughest thing you can do when you struggle with anxiety.
So, does nofap help with maintaining eye contact?
The answer is an unequivocal yes from my personal experience.
It’s still a mystery to me why it helps, but here are possible reasons.
I don’t know if nofap is going to have the same benefits to you. But, even if you don’t notice any benefits, I do believe it is worth trying just for this one reason I’m about to tell you.
It requires a great deal of self-control for you to sustain nofap especially if you have been masturbating daily for the past few years.
And it is crucially important for you to develop that ability to delay gratification if you want to achieve anything meaningful in your life.
You are probably not going to be surprised to hear this, but I also noticed a significant improvement in my erection.
My sexual attraction towards my first girlfriend diminished a few months after I got into a relationship, and I resorted to daily masturbation (Yep… I relapsed) instead of choosing to get physically intimate with her.
Needless to say, it only made the problem worse, and I completely lost interest in making love to her.
During this period, it was extremely difficult for me to get an erection. Even when I did, it only lasted for a short while (and she was attractive with a very nice body which made me believe there must be something wrong with me).
However, things completely changed when I went on nofap (after stopping for a certain period).
Despite no longer feeling a high sexual desire for my girlfriend, I was still able to get strong erections without too much problem.
I do need to note, however, that frequent masturbation does not seem to decrease sexual drive for a man who naturally has a high sex drive.
I’ve known a few people who’d masturbate on a daily basis, and they had no problem getting (and sustaining) erection with girls they were seeing.
If you happen to be one of those people, then you can count yourself lucky.
But, most of us aren’t blessed with unlimited sexual drive, so it would be worthwhile to give nofap a try if this applies to you.
Let’s talk about why nofap may be right thing to do even if we ignore all of the supposed benefits of nofap.
First, watching porn and masturbating is an addiction for many.
There is no such thing as watching porn in moderation for a lot of men out there.
Yes, I know you don’t necessarily have to watch porn to be masturbating.
But, I think it’s safe to say most men do watch porn when they masturbate.
And whenever you become addicted to something, there are naturally going to be side effects.
So, what are those side effects?
One glaring problem is a decreased productivity.
When you are spending hours of your day watching porn, you are wasting valuable time that could be spent doing something more productive.
But, the problem doesn’t end there.
Do you notice it’s extremely difficult to focus on anything for at least a few hours after watching porn?
That ‘post-fap mental fogginess” you are going to experience will decrease your productivity even further.
Let’s say you waste three to four hours every day watching porn if you are an addict.
And you couple that with your post-fap fogginess as well as all of those sexual images that linger in your head throughout the day, then you could easily waste seven to eight hours of your day.
Think about that for a moment.
You probably get around eight hours of sleep a day, and you spend sixteen hours a day awake.
In such a case, you may end up spending half of your waking hours doing nothing but thinking about porn and sex.
Do you think I’m exaggerating?
I’m sure anyone who’s suffered from porn addiction can relate to the above scenario.
At this point, I think it’s pretty clear why you should seriously consider giving nofap a try.
If you are still not convinced, however, I have another good reason for you to give nofap a shot.
If confidence attracts girls, then it makes sense why doing nofap would help you attract more girls.
I had no confidence when I was addicted to porn and masturbation.
The statement below best describes why I lacked confidence while I was suffering from porn addiction.
“You build confidence by keeping promises you make to yourself”
This can really be any promises you make to yourself.
It can be a promise you make to wake up at six in the morning every day.
It can be a promise you make to read twenty pages of a book a day.
When you make these commitments, and you stick to your words, that is how you become more confident.
When you are a man of your word, you are building up your internal credit score.
Your self-confidence naturally grows when you know you can trust yourself.
So, how can you apply this principle to nofap in terms of growing your confidence?
The first step is to be honest with yourself.
You most likely don’t spend hours of your day watching porn (and masturbating) because it gives you fulfillment.
I would imagine it is an addiction that you want to quit.
How do you think your confidence will be affected if you are chronically addicted to a habit that is destroying your life?
Your confidence will continue to diminish.
A lack of confidence comes with many side effects that diminish your attractiveness to girls.
When you are feeling less confident, you slouch forward, you can’t maintain good eye contact, and you speak with uncertainty.
And this isn’t just limited to porn addiction.
Your confidence will greatly improve when you are able to regain control of your life by dealing with whatever addiction that is negatively affecting the quality of your life.
And your confidence will show when you interact with girls.
Without a doubt, nofap brought a lot of positives changes to my life, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to experience the same exact benefits.
By no means am I saying nofap is going to be a magic pill to cure all of your life problems.
But, I just don’t want you to judge before you at least give it a try.
So many men spend most of their lives living in their little ivory towers.
They live their lives with pre-existing biases on why they should or shouldn’t do something (without trying it out themselves).
It’s equivalent to people who argue over the internet on whether keto or paleo diet is the best for weight loss.
If these people focused more on ‘doing’ rather than ‘analyzing’, they would be so much further ahead in their lives.
So, go ahead and give nofap a try, and see if you notice any positive changes in your life.
If you believe it helped to improve the quality of your life, you can continue.
If not, you can simply discard.
Anyway, I hope this article gave you a better perspective on the potential benefits of nofap.
I wish you the best of luck!
I was Introduced to the world of seduction after being a virgin for the first 26 years of life and being dumped by my first girlfriend at the age of 28. The dating world wasn't so kind to a 28-year-old Asian man who barely had any experience with girls. But, I eventually cracked the "code" and began "attracting" two to three new girls a week on average when I was actively going out. I'm not mentioning that to impress you but to impress upon you that you can take your dating life to the next level... IF you are equipped with the right knowledge and a desire to take massive action.
