I know many people are talking about the benefits of semen retention for a life time or the benefits of celibacy for phenomenal success quoting very famous and successful people but…
It is totally natural and healthy to want to be in an intimate relationship with someone.
As a Christian I would argue that God created us for relationship. He created us for an intimate relationship with one person and also to have lots of other less intimate relationships.
Most people on this site if not all want this in which case everlasting semen retention is neither realistic or desirable. The difference is that when you lose your semen there will be a beautiful woman to receive it. You will be connecting with another soul in a deep and meaningful way rather than connecting with meaningless explicit images and videos on a screen which only serves to make the person involved in this more empty and depressed.
So when you engage in sex with your spouse will you feel depleted?
Maybe but you will also be forming and strengthening deep bonds of connection which will also invigorate you.
Additionally this depletion may lead to the creation of new life if you are not using contraceptives and she will be receiving nutrients from your semen methinks. lol
The self control learned doing no fap will hopefully be useful in a marriage because realistically you won’t be having sex as much as you would like particularly once children arrive and also as the relationship cools off and matures.
So in my opinion God designed sex and made it pleasurable and a bonding experience with the creation of new life in mind.
So sex with your wife is good.
Self sex is bad particularly when it gets out of control as we’ve all discovered.
So personally the ideal goal would be semen retention until I’m married but not forever.
Just my thoughts feel free to comment because I’ve probably overcomplicated it and waffled a bit
