- Nikola Tesla

And many more.
What Is Semen Retention
In this practice, orgasm is separated from ejaculation, making it possible to have the full pleasure of sexual communication including orgasm without experiencing primary ejaculation. Semen retention is an ancient practice, believed to boost male physical and spiritual energy(1).
How Semen Retention Boosts Spiritual Energy
When you stop beating your meat for pleasure, your spiritual energy starts to take place. You will stop objectifying women and you will start to respect them because when you watch those kinds of videos it affects your mind badly and decreases your dopamine level. It also helps you to be calm in any situation.
Why You Should Not Watch Those Kinds Of Videos
The Internet is growing day by day.
On one hand, It has changed our world, allowing people to communicate, obtain knowledge, save time, and entertain.
On the other hand, it has become a conduit for some of the most primal urges and emotions we have as humans. Technology has also led many, especially the millennial generation to become completely dependent on it to fulfill these emotions.
Of all the desires that the internet fuels, the desire for synthetic love is, obviously, by far the most lucrative, sought after, and abused desire of all. right now vulgarity, unfortunately, is the king of the internet.
1: It Causes Depression
Much like with sugar addiction, watching XX releases dopamine into our brains, and gives us the feeling of pleasure.
Keep watching it constantly, and you’ll need to watch more to gain the same amount of pleasure or happiness as you first experienced. When you’re not watching as much as you’re brain is used to, you’ll experience abandonment symptoms.
This is a big cause of depression.
2: It Destroys Your Productivity
It’s easy to get distracted from your work when you’ve got those videos on your mind the whole time.
Let’s face it, an addiction to anything will stop you from getting work completed in one way or another. The worst part is that even if you go back to work later and make up the time, the quick break will still cut your efficiency or power in half.
3: You Will Start To Hate Your Body
There’s a reason why famous X-stars look the way they look. First, they were chosen, and then they go through a lot of makeup photoshop edits, and surgery to finish the look.
When you watch those videos, you start to compare yourself with the actors, and in maximum cases that probably won’t make you feel good about yourself.
4: It Destroys Your Self Confidence
It might get you to question a lot of things, your abilities in the bedroom, your relationship, your physical appearance.
Sadly, this is one of the biggest side effects of things like x-tagged videos. They reduce your self-confidence.
5: Affects Your Goals
The majority of us have dreams, goals, and passions in our life, right?
What happens when we get diverted from them?
We lose vision of them. We stop working on them. X-tagged videos are just one of the many bad habits that can stop us from working on our passions or goals.
We feel terrible each time after ejaculating, and it hurts the work motivation. A person who lacks self-motivation may find even the smallest of tasks extremely difficult.

Nofap is closely related to semen retention and they both have almost the same benefits. In my opinion, taking a Nofap challenge is a better option, why? Click to Read.
1: Boosts Confidence
Working hard and achieving success is a long-term process, your brain always seeks shortcuts, and when it finds one, it tries to stick with it.
Most of us grind every day to reach our goals, and you need strong confidence inside if you really wanna live the life of your dream.
Excessive masturbation hurts your dopamine receptors. According to a study done by PubMed, People with low dopamine levels generally have low confidence.
Low dopamine also diminishes motivation and willpower, without enough motivation, it is nearly impossible for you to become confident.
Practicing semen retention boosts dopamine sensitivity and motivation, ultimately, increase in confidence.
2: Boosts Energy
Have you ever heard about Vitamin B12? I know it’s a silly question because everyone knows what it is, but do you know the work of Vitamin B12?
Our semen contains Vitamin B12 (in a small amount). B12 vitamin is crucial for stamina. Also, it helps to transform the food you consume into energy that your cells can use.
Furthermore, it keeps your body’s blood cells and nerve cells strong, and helps to stop a type of anemia that can make you tired and weak.
We lose Vitamin B12, and maybe this is the reason why we feel extremely exhausted after jerking off.
Abstaining from ejaculation boosts your testosterone levels within a week and keeps a sufficient amount of Vitamin B12 in your body. That is why people who don’t waste their semen feel so fresh and active all the time.
However, according to Pubmed, Semen retention does boost your testosterone by 45% in a week. but, it drops back to normal after some days.
High testosterone level is linked with high energy, and on the other side, low testosterone levels cause fatigue, loss of interest in sex, and erectile dysfunction.
3: Self Control
The urges for self-pleasuring are the strongest. According to some research done, urges of masturbation and porn are even more powerful than any addiction, and when you stop yourself from ejaculating every day, you make yourself more powerful.
Self-control is the most difficult thing to do. If you can control yourself then you can do anything, believe me.
There are several ways to improve restraint, you can do meditation, yoga, and read books as well. But the most effective thing that you can do is to stop yourself from playing with your….you know.
People like Nikola tesla had practiced semen retention to maximize their potential. He knew, how important our semen is to us.
4: Sharp Memory
You will start to memorize things that you were forgetting easily because semen retention will help you to get rid of the garbage present in your brain.
People who have started practicing semen retention have found that their memory power is increasing day by day.
There is no scientific evidence that makes this claim true. However, many people are noticing that when they masturbate regularly, they find it hard to remember even the smallest of things.
5: Strong Hairs
Keratin is the most essential nutrient for your hair and nails, and our semen contains keratin (in a small amount).
People who use keratin on their hair report that their hair is smoother and easier to manage as a result.
Lack of keratin in your body may result in hair loss, roughness, dryness, and thin hair.
Frequent masturbation and wasting semen may make your hair go thin and it may also cause hair fall. It’s better to preserve the semen than become bald, right?
Also, when we fap too much our scalp becomes dry and we feel itchiness in our head all the time. Some people have even noticed the growth of lice in the head when they continued to masturbate for a month daily.
Just stop masturbation for a week and see it by yourself if you think it’s a lie. I guarantee, your hair will become better in terms of thickness, and itchiness will also go away.
6: Deep Voice
Semen retention boosts your testosterone levels by 45% in just a week and it makes your voice deeper.
My voice is loud and clear now, and this is 100% true, I have even recorded my voice from day 1 to day 30 and there was a noticeable change in my voice structure.
It will take around one week, and after that, you will feel that your voice is becoming deeper and deeper day by day, and you know girls like a deeper voice.
7: Relieves depression
It is one of the most common mental diseases in today’s society. After masturbation our behavior changes quickly, we start to feel guilty like we have done a crime. Some people get stuck in a loop where they masturbate and feel sad, and again after some time, just because they are feeling sad, they masturbate.
This loop could be lethal for your brain. It could affect your emotions deeply and may push you into the deep darkness of depression. In these kinds of scenarios, a person requires help immediately.
As I said earlier, semen retention increases testosterone levels. Optimal levels of testosterone are associated with mental well-being.
A study done by Harvard suggests that patients who were not reacting to the conventional anti-depressants had low levels of testosterone in their bodies.
And, when these patients were given a dosage of testosterone along with antidepressants, they reacted to it very well.
There is a fine link between testosterone and depression.
8: Semen Retention Boosts Libido
Libido is a person’s overall sexual drive or desire for sexual activity. Most of the people who practice NoFap noticed their sexual desire is increasing, but this time, a real sexual desire, not a fake one.
However, at the same time, a person who practices Nofap can also control those desires and can use it on different tasks like exercise, sport, studies, and those activities that require high energy and concentration.
A study was conducted with the help of men, aged between 40-70. The group which was given a high dosage of testosterone observed a notable increase in the libido.
So, maybe it’s all game of high testosterone.
9: Semen Retention Makes You A Risk Taker
Here is another extra advantage of practicing Semen Retention or NoFap.
I know people should think twice before taking any risky decision, however, without taking a big decision, the possibility of becoming successful is pretty thin.
For example, Steve Jobs. He was not so rich when he started Apple. He was a college dropout, but he took the risk, and now the whole world knows him.
According to a study, higher levels of testosterone are correlated with financial risk-taking behavior. You can read about it here.
10: Improves Sleep
Research was done on a group of men aged 65 or above revealed that low testosterone is associated with a reduction in sleep duration, less quality sleep, frequent waking up, and disturbance while sleeping. Hence, an optimal amount of free testosterone is liable for overall sleep quality.
The odd thing about this is that more sleep means more testosterone.
Men who sleep less than 5-6 hours at night have 10 percent less testosterone in their bodies.
So, rest for more testosterone, and more testosterone means better sleep.
11: Semen Retention Boosts Your Immune System
Our semen contains numerous essential vitamins and minerals including Calcium, Vitamin C, Citric acid, Lactic acid, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Potassium, Vitamin B12, and Zinc.
These essential vitamins and minerals support our immune system because these nutrients work as antioxidants as well and antioxidants promote our immune system by fighting free radicals.
12: Female Attraction
After psychological needs and safety needs, the main purpose of a male is to have sex. Everything that a man does, he does for sex.
According to psychology, sex is one of the primary things as a human being, and when we give ourselves the same feeling as sex through porn and masturbation, we feel satisfied, we feel like we don’t have to do anything else now because we have got what we wanted.
But when we stop ourselves from getting pleasure from unrealistic things, our brain starts to force us to do those things that can give us the same pleasure as sex. Then we do things that can help us get a real girl, then we do things that can help us accomplish our goal so we can get a partner
13: Helps In Awakening The Root Chakra
The root chakra is the first chakra. Its energy is based on the earth element. It’s linked with the feeling of safety and grounding. It’s at the base of the chakra system and sets the foundation for expansion in your life.
The root chakra is found at the base of the spine. The corresponding body areas are the perineum, with the first three vertebrae, at the pelvic plexus. This chakra is often represented as a cone of energy starting at the base of the spine and going down and then slightly bent up.
It’s been observed that people who follow Nofap for a longer period, feel their root chakra is opening up.
14: Improves Your Sporting Performances
It is a highly debatable topic. Some people say it does not affect anyway and some people advise quitting masturbation a couple of weeks before taking part in any sporting event.
As a college football (Soccer) player, I also noticed my performances after ejaculation and while practicing Nofap.
Whenever I go to the football field when I am on NoFap, I feel more power and energy, which helps me give my 100%, but when I come to the pitch after ejaculation. I don’t feel much power and my mind also doesn’t work well.
Famous boxers like Muhammed Ali and Myke Tyson also used to stay away from sex and masturbation before the match. Their coach used to guide them.
15: Makes You Feel Happy
Porn and masturbation only give you pleasure for a couple of hours, and after that, reality hits you.
Most of the people who are addicted to masturbation feel guilty and sad, and because they feel sad they masturbate more and they are stuck in a loop, and it becomes tough to break that loop.
Quitting masturbation makes you feel better, and your dopamine levels start to get back to normal. Once it will reach normal, you’ll find happiness in every moment, even if it is small.
16: Strong Muscles
A study done with the help of 28 individuals in 2003, found that not ejaculating for 7 days boosted testosterone levels by 145.7%.
And, do you know testosterone is responsible for increased muscle mass and lean body? Several studies indicate the same.
However, it is important to train yourself and exercise regularly to get the maximum advantage of practicing Semen Retention.
Many gym trainers also guide people to control or abstain completely from fapping, because they know that if you continue to fap daily, you’ll not meet the desired goals.
Also, testosterone strengthens the bones, it plays a big role in bone mineral density.
Bone density drops when a man ejaculates his semen daily and testosterone levels decrease. Strong bones help support your muscles and internal organs, which can boost athletic performance.
That’s why athletes often stay away from ejaculation before the game because they know if they masturbate their performance will not come up best.
17: More Time
Have you ever calculated how much time you waste on all this stuff? I guess you haven’t.
“They say “time is money”. But I want to say “time makes money”. This means time is greater than money.”
― Israelmore Ayivor
There are hundreds of blog posts out there on time management, but all are wasteful until you stand up for yourself and decide to quit PMO.
PMO takes hours and within an hour you can do a lot of things like writing a post like this one or creating a video for your YouTube channel or Learning where to invest the money that you have earned through a lot of hard work. Everything is only possible if you stand up for yourself and take big steps.
People think making money is pretty difficult to earn, and it is true. However, we make it even more difficult by spending our precious time-consuming porn just for our genital satisfaction.
18: Unlimited Motivation
Without motivation, you can’t achieve anything. Motivation is an important life skill.
The reason it’s so important is that every person on this earth is unique and has a purpose.
To steward your purpose well, you have to be motivated to work towards your goals, which helps your dreams become a reality.
But PMO addicts struggle to generate motivation to do anything that requires hard work. Since I am on NoFap, I felt that the NoFap has boosted my self-motivation, and that is why I dream big, and most importantly, I do the hard work to make it a reality.
19: Makes You Attractive/Charismatic
Charisma is the quality of being able to attract, charm, and influence those around you. It is usually simple to identify when someone is charismatic.
But in today’s world, charismatic people are disappearing like they were never there. It is mainly because youths are engaging in activities such as gaming, porn, and of course, masturbation, more than ever before.
Most people who watch porn don’t understand how badly PMO (Porn, Masturbation, and Orgasm) is affecting their minds. PMO snatches the self-confidence and fills the mind with self-doubts.
People with self-doubts can never be charismatic. If you wanna have a personality that everyone likes, you have to quit wasting your semen and spending time searching porn.
The fight is not easy. Porn is one of the easiest things to find on the internet. There is no surprise that the porn industry is worth more than Hollywood. Every third person on the internet searches for something related to porn.
The more you engage with porn, the more you distance yourself from the real world. It is important to engage with the real world to develop an attractive personality.
