Stop Porn

The first movement to take a stance against the consumption of pornography is the NoFap community. That’s a movement originally started in June 2011 by Alexander Rhodes, after a Reddit discussion that highlighted the results from a Chinese study on men’s testosterone levels.

The study found that men that don’t masturbate experience a 45.7% increase in their total testosterone levels.

As you might imagine, this information got a lot of people excited, as boosting your testosterone can bring a multitude of health benefits, including better results in the gym (more strength and muscle gains).

Other studies have also noted the positive effect that testosterone has on focus and mental clarity (aka “the absence of brain fog”), which are two important factors when it comes to academic success and being able to accomplish your work tasks with a high degree of quality.
