I am a Christian but when I searched about masturbation in religious view, I found that masturbation is also known as “Wasting seed” in Christianity and Judaism. And I started doing research about it basically leading me to find a lot of article regarding it in Jewish religion and it started motivating me. So i wish to share this Wisdom in this forum. Hope you guys don’t take it as some religious fighting stage. I believe that all human beings are spiritual beings with the power of growth. You can also post quotes from you religious books and let it lead to light a glowing sun in earth spreading warmness to our friends and family where we are free from all the bad thoughts and having a healthy body to shoulder the responsibilities.

Whether this is new to you, or you’ve heard of the concept and wanted to explore it further, you cannot deny that the entire notion is intriguing. It is common belief that regular masturbation is healthy. But we have all been fed incorrect information, however it’s not our fault for believing it, we all trust experts, that’s why they’re called experts.
It takes a hell of a lot of energy to create sperm, it’s one of the main reasons why men live shorter lives on average than women. It is said that the production of sperm in order to create a life, takes a part of our own life with it. This suggests that lowering the frequency of ejaculations should result in you living longer, aging slower and looking better in an appearance sense. These are all valid reasons to practice sperm retention, however the benefits don’t stop there.
In recent years a new organisation by the name of NOFAP has been formed. The NOFAP organisation encourages men to quit porn and masturbation and conserve their sperm. This is an attempt to attract real women and improve their general day to day lives. Many men in the modern era report symptoms such as depression, low energy, anxiety, fear of women and social awkwardness. They recognized that this wasn’t normal, and like all of us would, they searched why. This involved trips to doctors, specialists and hundreds if not thousands in wasted cash. Yet they still couldn’t remove their negative symptoms.
Most of these men try NOFAP as a last resort. Nothing else works for them, so they simply think, what harm can it do? Quickly these men realize that they’ve stumbled onto something, they begin to see what many have labelled superpowers. This consists of increased confidence, removal of depression, anxiety, fear and social awkwardness. They also report receiving huge increases in motivation for life and success, they suddenly want to do more than lie in bed and watch TV all day. I personally don’t believe in the superpowers, I believe it’s merely a man experiencing normality. The reason why it feels like superpowers for so many, is down to how familiar they became with feeling tired and negative.
Lets quickly look at all of the listed benefits that men participating in NOFAP have experienced:
(Remember that these men have nothing to gain financially from reporting these benefits, neither can it be a placebo effect when thousands of men who’ve never met, report identical benefits with the exact same descriptions)
Increased social skills
Highly motivated to succeed
Highly motivated to do more
Highly motivated to approach real women
Increased fat loss
Increased muscle growth
Improved sporting performance
Increased hair growth (Facial, body and hair)
Less sleep required
Improved body language
More alpha male behaviours
Increased attention from women
More respect from men
Removal of brain fog
A cure to hair loss
High sex drive
Feelings of power
This may seem too good to be true but I can testify to pretty much all of these benefits myself. I am not selling anything in this article, neither am I trying to redirect you to a product. I have nothing to gain other than passing on my experience to help others. Of course each of these benefits can be explained.
Sperm is full of proteins, nutrients, minerals and enzymes that are key to our health, immunity and appearance. After around 2 weeks of sperm retention, the body decides to reabsorb the sperm. This means that all of those food groups are transported around the body and used to improve us. This is why we see better skin, brighter eyes, thicker hair, bigger muscles, increased facial hair growth, a smarter you, improved memory and a cure for hair loss.
Humans have a built in desire to reproduce and pass on our genetics. If you satisfy this need by masturbating, then the body and the brain believe that you’re doing well in life. The brain does not know the difference between real sex and masturbation. This means that men everywhere are tricking their brains into thinking that they’re a hit with women. By refraining from masturbation, your brain panics. It starts to believe that you’re useless with women, this is where the extra benefits come from. The body decides to improve you in every way possible in order to attract women. The brain is programmed to pass on genetics, if it can’t do that, then it’ll do whatever it can to encourage mating. This includes making you look better, giving you more motivation to go out and make more money/approach women, provide you with confidence and give you a deeper voice.
Women are attracted to testosterone and masculinity, this is natural. By improving a man’s physique, voice, health, personality traits, body language and pheromones, it enables a man to become what women want. The added benefit is that women and success are closely linked. Whatever helps you with women, generally helps you achieve success in life.
As you can see NOFAP/sperm retention isn’t necessarily producing superpowers. It is merely tapping into what nature intended. In the animal kingdom you will see males peaking around mating season. Humans are one of the only creatures without a mating season. We’re constantly wasting semen all throughout the year rather than letting sexual desire build like 99.9% of creatures on planet earth.
This was elaborated on by Napoleon Hill in the book Think and Grow Rich. Below are pieces from that book explaining the art of sexual transmutation (Sperm retention/NOFAP), that I have constructed into one.
When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times. So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc., which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling, including, of course, the accumulation of riches.
Scientific research has disclosed these significant facts:
The men of greatest achievement are men with highly developed sex nature; men who have learned the art of sex transmutation.
The men who have accumulated great fortunes and achieved outstanding recognition in literature, art, industry, architecture and the professions, were motivated by the influence of a women.
The emotion of sex is an “irresistible force,” against which there can be no such opposition as an “immovable body.” When driven by this emotion, men become gifted with a super power for action. Understand this truth, and you will catch the significance of the statement that sex transmutation will lift one to the status of a genius.
For the purpose of refreshing the memory, in connection with the facts available from the biographies of certain men, we here present the names of a few men of outstanding achievement, each of whom was known to have been of a highly sexed nature. The genius which was their’s, undoubtedly found its source of power in transmuted sex energy: George Washington, Napoleon Bonaparte, William Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Jefferson, Oscar Wilde and Woodrow Wilson.
This study disclosed the fact that the major reason why the majority of men who succeed do not begin to do so before the age of forty to fifty, is their tendency to DISSIPATE their energies through over indulgence in physical expression of the emotion of sex. The majority of men never learn that the urge of sex has other possibilities, which far transcend in importance, that of mere physical expression. The majority of those who make this discovery, do so after having wasted many years at a period when the sex energy is at its height, prior to the age of forty-five to fifty. This usually is followed by noteworthy achievement.
It is no secret that Jewish men are on the whole, successful people. Take a look at these statistics regarding Jewish wealth:
Jewish Americans are the most powerful and influential ethnic group in America.
Jewish Americans make up 2 percent of the U.S. population yet comprise 40 percent of U.S. billionaires.
18% of Jewish households have a net worth of $1 million or more.
More than 55% of all Jewish Adults received a college degree and 25% earned a graduate degree.
More than 60% of all employed Jews are in one of the three highest status job categories: professional or technical (41%), management and executive (13%) and business and finance (7%).
Many have speculated that Jewish people are smarter. However this is absurd, since science has proved that natural talent and ability is dispersed pretty equally around the planet. Instead we should be looking at what Jewish men do differently, in an environmental sense, and the only real difference between Jewish men and all other men is that they don’t masturbate. Of course many do, hence why not all Jews are successful. But with their religious beliefs being anti-masturbation, it encourages a greater proportion of Jewish men to follow this rule. Could this be why Jewish men are walking over all other male races right now? This belief could also be strengthened by looking at the money in Arab countries. With the Islamic faith promoting the same anti-masturbation rule, it’s no wonder why cities like Dubai are being created out of baron desert terrain.
Boxers are told to not masturbate for weeks if not months before a fight. Many athletics trainers also tell their athletes to not masturbate before competitions. Two high profile practitioners include Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, who both went years without releasing semen in order to achieve success.
As former world heavyweight champion boxer David Haye said on the topic of sperm retention:
Find a lion that hasn’t had some food for a while, and you’ve got one dangerous cat. I don’t ejaculate for six weeks before the fight. No sex, no masturbation, no nothing. It releases too much tension. It releases a lot of minerals and nutrients that your body needs, and it releases them cheaply. Releasing weakens the knees and your legs. Find a lion that hasn’t had some food for a while, and you’ve got a dangerous cat. So there won’t bet a drip from me. Even in my sleep — if there are girls all over me in my dream, I say to them, ‘I’ve got a fight next week, I can’t do anything. I can’t do it.’ That’s control. I’ve been doing that since I was fifteen and its part and parcel of my preparation now. That’s why I am who I am today — it’s down to all those little sacrifices. Find me another boxer who makes that sacrifice, and you’ll find another champion.
Every man should try sperm retention/NOFAP at some point in his life. Just to see if he experiences benefits that will change his own life, or to see if he truly has a porn addiction. Most men try to quit only to find out that they can’t. This is alarming to someone who thought that porn was only a casual pleasure to them.
Remember, if you’re throwing your semen away, then you’re tricking your brain. Instead, let that sexual energy build and watch your life change. It all derives from evolution. In order for a male to succeed, whether animal or human, the male would have to fight his way through the heard/tribe. The most dominant alpha male usually wins out in this battle. By ejaculating frequently, you actually take away this evolutionary power, hence why so many men feel lifeless in the modern era.
Many people tell me that I am not an addict.
After all, has my addictive behaviors caused terrible harm and consequences? Have I lost my whole family? Have I contracted AIDS? Have I given someone else a sexually transmitted disease? Did I lose money to my addiction? Did I end up in jail?
No. No. No. And no.
None of the above.
But addiction is defined as “repeated involvement despite substantial harm.”
What’s my “substantial harm?”
My behaviors may not have wrecked my life in any of the above ways.
My behaviors may not have caused crazy VISIBLE consequences.
But trust me.
My behaviors surely have caused harm and negative consequences.
Is losing sleep night after night not a consequence?
Is crying all night into my pillow until it was soaked not a consequence?
Is hating myself with a deep passion not a consequence?
Is feeling so dirty and disgusting not a consequence?
Is feeling like “I would be okay if I just didn’t wake up tomorrow morning” not a consequence?
Is not recognizing the person I’ve become not a consequence?
Is feeling disconnected from God not a consequence?
Is feeling disconnected from all my holy dreams, values, and aspirations not a consequence?
Is living in a dark hidden shame-filled world not a consequence?
I may not have a sexually transmitted disease.
But my acting out behaviors made me HATE MYSELF!
IS THAT NOT HARM?!?
For me, my consequences were all emotional/spiritual.
I was doing things over and over again that were not in line with who I REALLY was.
And that is painful.
I knew I was Godly… I knew I was holy… I knew I was pure… I knew it!
Yet these behaviors, they made me feel SO far from it.
Like I wasn’t any of that.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to masturbate.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to fantasize.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to watch porn.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to watch inappropriate videos.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to read sexual material.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to sexualize and romanticize the men I came in contact with.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to think and hope that the men I was walking past thought I was beautiful.
It didn’t feel true to who I really am to always pine for and desire guys to make me feel special.
None of these behaviors felt true to who I knew I really was - to my values as me!
And so I felt the shame, the pain, the discord, the dirtiness.
And yet I did it AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.
It requires no more thinking, no more investigating, no more doubt.
I believe experiencing this all is called “SUBSTANTIAL HARM.”
God, please remove from me the behaviors I hate, which are so not true to myself and make me feel so bad. May I be left with a life connected to my true self and my Higher Power.
And to everyone out there who don’t yet know whether they are an addict or not. Only YOU can decide for yourself. It is different for everyone. For me, masturbation and fantasy made me hate myself and my life. For someone else, it may not. But I hope you realize that if you do hate yourself or your life now because of what you do, or what you do gives you pain, then that is not okay.
That IS enough harm - it doesn’t need to get worse than that.
May God lead us all to a place of serenity and from shame to grace.
Best of luck with your journey. true beauty everything you said. Thanks for the motivation and hope I motivated you too. Have a great life and remember it’s to short make the best of it.
I was an Christian evangelical (I still love my brothers christians), but I discovered that I am a descendant of Jews and there I got attached to the Jewish faith, I was addicted to pornography for more than 10 years to the point of masturbating 8 times in a day, in 2014 I met a Jewish site called GuardYourEyes and I got help and I got rid of pornography to the point of being more than 4 years clean, it was more than 1600 days clean. This site like Rewire Companion help thousands of jews and no jews against this evil called pornography.To the brothers of all religions and non-religions: Refuge in God and guard your eyes !
