      I'd done this for a month earlier this year. I felt incredibly intense and needed to frequent the gym....a lot. Going to bars was torture - never again.

      I found after the difficult first week it stabilized for about two weeks, and then became insane. I then wondered if anyone's typical sex drive was what I was experiencing 3 weeks onwards. Madness, if so.

      How on earth could someone go a whole month without masturbating?

      You know that movie 40 days and 40 nights? It's a fictional imagining of something that has never happened in the history of mankind. That's why the guy seems so calm near the end of the movie. They had no idea what actually happens.

      The only substantial benefit I can see is an increase in dream sexiness.

      I survived 27 days. Any more and I think I would've exploded. Mentally. It becomes incredibly difficult to think or concentrate on what you wish: I could only think of one thing. I'm trying to think of the benefits of my experiment....um, unnecessary evidence that my sex drive is fully functional.

      Though I have to admit, the day I finished the experiment was a huge relief.

      There's another benefit.

      Sex is the drug addiction we're all born with. It's easy to say everyone who abstains is terribly repressed and suffering consequences from it. But the fact is, we don't know if that's true. Normally I would never advocate abstinence, especially not to everyone. It's a road meant for a rare soul who wants to understand what it feels like to get over a heroin addiction without ever getting under one. No one should ever choose abstinence to make God or anyone else but themselves happy. It's all about the individual and what they choose for themselves.

      And who can really say they wouldn't want a little more willpower in their lives? When I quit smoking cigarettes I can honestly say I was a weaker person than I am now. Going through that trial forced me to rise to the occasion. Not everyone that rides a horse is a jockey, Great Men rise to Greater Challenges.

      Except that you can quit taking drugs, whilst this sexual abstinence is seemingly temporary at best. Enduring a fight you will lose.

      Of course there are some individuals somewhere who probably manage to permanently abstain without castration.

      Still, good luck weakamon - if you can get past 27 days and remain sane, then I applaud you.

      I think the longest I've gone is a couple weeks--maybe three--without especially trying, just keeping busy and being around people a lot.

      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      Sure they do, Having sex once or twice a day means you'll have no real need to masturbate.

      And that isn't so much as to be tired or busy, it's just normal

      Umm...if that's not cheating, then this whole thread is retarded.

      In fact, if the OP allows himself to have wet dreams (whether consciously or not), that's also cheating. So it would be difficult to say for sure if he were truly successful, even if he never intentionally masturbated.

      Normal for the first 3-6 weeks of a relationship, if you're in your teens or twenties. For a year, under any circumstances? No, not normal.

      Oh. I just assumed he got a Real Doll for Christmas.

      Good luck to you then!

      I've no idea what was I thinking when I switched to private browsing. And now my mind is completely disgusted by all the porn.
