increased happiness increased confidence increased motivation willpower lowered stress you know all this stuff can be helpful for some people and can actually happen however it can also what i noticed after a while it could potentially what's up guys derek from our placements.com today we're going to be revisiting the nofap discussion if you've seen uh my video on nofap you kind of know my stance on it from a guy's perspective who is enhanced so if you don't know i'm on
00:36
trt and uh i did the nofap experiment if you want to see my anecdotal report you can go look at i'll put a card up in the corner doing nofap on steroids and it's a bit of a unique spin on the nofap challenge because most guys doing it are natural and um you know just thought i would see how um it would affect my you know brain chemistry i guess or how i respond to uh you know everyday stressors and [ __ ] and uh how skyrocketed my libido would go all that
01:06
kind of stuff you can see my results in there but um as far as naturals go obviously you know maintaining a steady state concentration of tests with exogenous hormones is a bit different than a guy who is abstaining from busting a nut which is like directly intertwined into his endogenous testosterone production like obviously you know your hpta or hbga whatever you want to call it is um you know regulated essentially by gonadotropins going down your testicles and producing testosterone in your
01:37
goddamn testicles so this if you are busting nuts is that going to lower your test if you don't fap is that going to cause a buildup of tests and a giant spike where you end up getting uh you know way more muscle growth or something that's kind of what we're going to be getting into and what the truth is and i was looking into some of the clinical literature on the subject and i found an interesting article um that kind of summarized it and i thought it was a really uh well put together article that kind of you know did the work for me to be honest so instead of digging into it they've
02:08
consolidated the very minimal data available and have a conclusive opinion on what exactly happens and i'll kind of give you my stance you know tying it all together at the end so here nofap is a growing online movement devoted to giving up masturbation even sex for extended periods typically around 90 days starting off as a spin-off from a 2011 thread on reddit the organization nofap.com describes itself as a community-centered sexual health platform designed to help people overcome porn addiction and compuls compulsive sexual behavior
02:39
the claim benefits however have now extended the reach of nofap beyond the realms of porn addiction recovery into mainstream health and lifestyle initiatives advocates of nofap are heralding an array of sexual physical and mental improvements including increased testosterone levels but is there any evidence to back this up there's also semen retention that people are doing and um like this is basically a chart here of the sexual physical mental purported benefits what you can basically expect like this i can definitely attest to the fact that all of this [ __ ]
03:09
is pretty much accurate with exception of perhaps improved sexual self-regulation like i guess because you're not doing it you're not literally busting nuts on a daily basis you're self-regulating if that's what that means but the rest of it is definitely true physical um energy levels this can paradoxically go up and then down which we're going to go into later a lot of this stuff is a little bit overhyped but some of the stuff like improved or cured erectile dysfunction like so many guys
03:39
who think they have ed on steroids like some of them actually do and it's you know hormonal imbalances mismanagement of estrogen etc but a lot of these guys too they're just so [ __ ] horny and are like porn addicted and have desensitized themselves to pretty much everything sexual related that they can only get like a half chub watching like the most [ __ ] up porn ever and they do it like multiple times a day and then they wonder why they have ed even though they're on a bunch of steroids they think it's the steroids in reality their libido skyrocketing from the
04:10
steroids and then they're letting their brains run wild and do [ __ ] up like binges of porn to the point where they're dick's essentially like numb and they have to watch like super weird [ __ ] up [ __ ] just to feel something and then they blame it on the gear and it's like like i guess hypothetically it comes indirectly from the gear perhaps from your increased libido but it's like a lot of this is just willpower too like a lot of guys who think they have problems with you know like in bed not you know being able to stay hard with a chick first thing i tell them is don't fap for
04:41
a week and don't watch porn for a week and then see how your performance is seven days from now and then tell me if there's no no difference whatsoever and it's highly unlikely that that won't be the that you will encounter the same performance issues like it's highly likely you will notice improvements that's not always the case i'm just saying it's a good like first like easy free thing that's non-hormonal not anything you just [ __ ] don't touch your dick and don't watch porn and then see what happens after a week um increase happiness increase confidence increase motivation willpower lowered stress you know all this stuff can be helpful
05:12
for some people and can actually happen however it can also what i noticed after a while it could potentially be almost counterproductive where your mind is so consumed by sexual thoughts that you're almost better off getting off in order to get it out of your head so you can get back to work like that's the annoying thing once you have this [ __ ] built up and it doesn't even it's not even just about willpower after a while so you have so much pent-up [ __ ] [ __ ] that's uh you know it's just like consuming your mind you're like trying to work and you're like you know have a perpetual [ __ ] hard-on it's not
05:43
exactly easy to focus on your work so anyways getting into the actual you know benefits and whatnot in a clinical aspect in terms of does it spike your testosterone um like obviously testosterone does have profound effects on mood and whatnot as far as the actual evidence though two studies mainly pop up as the evidence reinforcing the kind of movement in the first one ten men had their testosterone levels measured twice baseline before masturbation orgasm several tests are more reliable than just one and then in 10 minute intervals after this was followed by a three week period
06:14
in which they instructed to refrain from any type of sexual activity after that period the process was repeated testosterone was reported as being higher in the baseline measurements after abstinence despite the conclusions of the research the sample size of the study was tiny i agree and the increase in testosterone may have actually been due to the anticipation of sexual arousal in the second experiment after abstinence what's more testosterone levels at the first baseline measurement were actually the same before and after abstinence you know it's like testosterone levels are so drastically affected by so many things in your lifestyle
06:45
sleep hygiene etc that it's like very hard to attribute anything to a 10 person study so i would not take a whole lot from that to be honest um like you could literally have like one night of shitty sleep and boom your test levels for the day are you know not as good as they could be like they could be substantially hindered just by you know a couple days of having like you eat way too close to bedtime and you know you have a shitty sleeper whatever it is and like whatever it is that interferes with with your sleep it's way too hot in your room whatever it is and all of a sudden you know your test
07:16
levels are you know periodically down [ __ ] 10 20 or something like this is not it's very very manipulated by a lot of different factors that may otherwise interfere with something with a sample size so minimal so i would definitely not take a lot from it um second study reported a 45 increase in test levels after seven days of abstinence but this was a temporary peak which then returned to the same levels as before even with continued abstinence and stayed that way such transient alterations and test levels are unlikely
07:47
to have any lasting effects on men's health and may primarily serve as a regulator of creation of new sperm a few studies on the other end have shown either no effect of abstinence on tests or that test was actually higher after masturbation or sex measuring tests before and directly after masturbation 34 healthy young men found that test levels increased after self-stimulation but any longer-term effects were not checked at best the evidence linking masturbation with changes in test levels is limited and with mixed conclusions um so you know again there's psychological reasons too that could
08:18
otherwise like basically here's my stance after you know some of the data like it's interesting the you know week-long abstinence leading to a spike in test in the real world what do you see it really play out that first week you notice like it's very very difficult to adhere to is it just because it's not a part of a routine for you or like it is part of your routine you're trying to remove it from your routine but it's like a habit so it's very hard to quit is it that your body actually ramps up when it thinks it is you know deprived of sex and it's trying to you know procreate
08:48
and it's like go [ __ ] people like that's basically what it's trying to get you to do and getting you more aggressive and whatnot you know the actual spike in test levels how much is it going to be and is it going to be sustained you know personally i would not be surprised if there is maybe a transient bump but what we do seem to find at least anecdotally in a lot of these reports are you get a big spike in aggression and you know volatility even in your first week and then after you sort of get used to the nofap after a while things sort of dip down you know this is
09:19
at least anecdotally maybe not for everyone but from what i've seen in my research research you know anecdotal findings is that after the first you know little hill you have to climb you know you've reached like a peak of aggression and then after that you either you know you almost go back down it's kind of interesting how it works there's a lot of individuals who will report they get a big [ __ ] spike after a week and then after a while it becomes far easier to adhere to not fapping and they eventually get to a point where they almost don't even want to and it makes you wonder is it like a use
09:49
it or lose it thing you know like there's a lot of things in the body that seem to be regulated by in fact like you know stimulating it to a point where it makes you wonder like is fapping intermittently perhaps ideal versus like i think we can all agree that doing it on a daily basis multiple times a day or something is [ __ ] you know terrible the amount of prolactin spike the amount of you becoming a lazy bastard that can occur from that in just a [ __ ] psychological aspect
10:19
definitely a real thing like there's not a it's not a coincidence that you feel so relaxed and so lethargic after like your body has literally accomplished its goal and is now in a mindset like literally neurochemically to just like relax and like do [ __ ] nothing so like doing the opposite of that getting your body into a place where it's urging itself to go do things and be motivated to go after you know procreating i guess is the main you know physiologic goal of it um i definitely think there's a mechanism there whereby if you do abstain from fapping
10:49
and especially porn um you will get i don't know if it's going to be a surge in test that is representative in every single individual but there's definitely a spike in aggression and definitely a real spike in motivation and drive overall which i definitely think can have actual benefits in a entrepreneurial aspect self-improvement aspect dating like how many guys will you know relegate themselves to pornhub and just like you know deal with the fact that it's so easily accessible to bust a nut rather than go put in the
11:22
work and the actual [ __ ] you know getting a chick like it's a lot easier to sit on your computer and rub one out than it is to actually you know put in the work and find a high quality woman that you want to spend time with you know this is the kind of [ __ ] that a lot of guys will subject themselves to simply out of laziness and lack of drive and this gets reinforced further by the constant busting of nuts and desensitizing their brains with porn to a point where they literally have no actual willpower to go [ __ ] find mates essentially so
11:53
yeah i think nofap has benefits in certain individuals i don't think it's necessarily useful for everyone i don't necessarily buy that it's going to spike your testosterone levels and subsequently maintain those heightened levels for long periods of time however i do think there are psychological benefits that can be redirected the energy pent up redirected into things that are more productive and help you reach goals you know i don't necessarily think it's for everyone but i definitely do think there is a psychological aspect that can be manipulated in a way that is beneficial
12:23
to certain lackadaisical individuals that are otherwise just floating through life with not much meaning and can't really apply themselves to things i do think they should retain that energy and redirect it into useful applications so i don't know let me know what you guys think in the comments down below do you have any experience with nofap do you have any before and after blood work to reinforce if it does indeed spike test levels or not and if they're subsequently maintained thereafter like what i would want to see is a guy who has multiple different base lines of blood work based on you know like averages on multiple weeks subsequently
12:55
after the first one um on the same diet model on the same training regiment on the same sleep protocol on the same everything multiple bass lines and get an average of those and then introduce the nofap and they get multiple averages after that and then sort of compare the averages you know and see what's going on there and get a more indicative um assessment of what's going on rather than you know having uh you know like and this would be your own individual thing not based on a 10 person sample size because how are you going to figure out what's applicable for you if you are referencing you know a study
13:26
that has 10 people in it obviously this would be something you'd have to replicate on your own and if they were going to do a study with it you know that would be sort of a model i'd like to see you know with more more people obviously but i don't necessarily think that's ever going to happen i don't necessarily think it's a good use of resources like to basically reinforce something that you could otherwise test for yourself for free if something has a benefit for you obviously the blood work not being free but the actual testing of the theory being free and if anything being
13:56
profitable because you save money by having more free time to do things so um i definitely think it's worth a try for everyone who is curious but i don't necessarily think it is definitively a advantageous thing for everyone to pursue so anyways let me know what you guys think in the comments down below your experiences um anecdotal or you know blood work related anecdotal and blood work related and whatnot um it's all appreciated helps the algorithm and i'm sure all the anecdotal feedback is going to be useful to other people trying to you know tilt them in one direction or
14:28
the other and deciding if they want to pursue this thing or not thank you guys for watching um like subscribe check out my blog replacements.com follow me on instagram emma play twitter facebook snapchat [ __ ] you twitter takes all a couple podcasts if you want to support the channel you can check out anything i'm associated with in the video description below my trt clinic i'll telemedicine from the comfort of your own home guerrilla mind nootropic formulas gorilla mode pre-workout formulas design myself from scratch recommended lab tests and diagnostics including you know assessing your endocrine parameters at baseline this would be something you do through my clinic for example and if you
14:58
had a hormonal deficiency this would be something to potentially address through lifestyle diet sleep hygiene practices and then if you know it's unresolvable from there then you might look at something like hormone intervention but that would be something you do with high quality oversight by qualified doctors which you'll find through my clinic that i've vetted myself personally and anything else i'm associated with including my recommended diet model which is indeed tailored to maximizing your testosterone through hitting your micronutrient intake not just your protein and your calories and [ __ ] it is in the video description description below as well so thank you guys for watching
