Sexual Exhaustion: Symptoms and Recovery

Sexual exhaustion is a type of problem that is not visible to a lot of people on first sight.

There are multiple reasons for this (none of which are scientifically proven, but that’s why we can theorize). In my opinion, the primary reason why a lot of people spend prolonged periods of time suffering the consequences of sexual exhaustion (symptoms which include low libido and motivation/procrastination problems) is that no one has ever explained to the general population that copulation (or masturbation) can be tiring to the body.

How to Solve Sexual Exhaustion

Most people believe that being sexually active on a frequent basis is in fact healthy. Yes, while being sexually active is of paramount importance and one of the main pleasures of life, as with all good things – it needs to be done in moderation.

Furthermore, if you are in need of recovery – simply moderating your masturbation and amount of sex may not be enough to cure your symptoms.

Think about it – if you’ve spent weeks, if not months exhausting yourself to the point of having no libido, do you think decreasing the amount of sex/masturbation to once a day is going to fix your problem?

Sexual Exhaustion Symptoms

Sexual Exhaustion may also be called “perpetual relapse.”

Relapsing is a term used in the NoFap community, which is what happens when someone tries to masturbate or watch porn, after abstaining for a period of time.

Relapsing is perhaps one of the worst things that can happen to a person that is doing NoFap. Now, just imagine someone relapsing to porn on a daily basis – that is the absolute worst case scenario for anyone that has any knowledge of the ills of watching pornography.

Most Guys Reading This Website Have the Same Symptoms

I can write articles on Antidopamine on a daily basis, and flawlessly strike a chord with the target audience.

That’s because most guys that end up in the PMO rut have their life path laid out before them. Most probably, 90% of the bad stuff that has happened to you did because of preventable causes.

We’ve all fallen at some point in our levels and even felt the complications of sexual exhaustion because we’ve built-up psychological habits in our minds in order to battle secondary feelings of loneliness, inferiority (lack of power & strength), anxiety and confusion (due to not having clear-cut goals – “make a lot of money” is not a goal).

That’s why an article about sexual exhaustion can lead to an article about loneliness or how to talk to girls, and all three of these articles make sense and are interconnected. Your problems began when you were 8 years old.

You just didn’t have the tools to fix them – until now, with the adage of the internet and the various different NoFap communities that are here to help out guys like you.

And here’s another thing:

I forgot to write the list of symptoms. These might do:

  • Low libido
  • Being unattractive to the opposite sex
  • Lack of interest in life
  • Not growing up / reaching maturity
  • Lose of strength
  • General lethargy

Sexual Exhaustion Recovery: Treatment & Cure

The image above is of a space-age hospital, but you are not going to need a hospital for where you are going.

All you need to clear yourself of the above list of symptoms is to learn to chill and stop masturbating for a few weeks. The more time you can do this, the better you are going to be.

Here are some of the concepts and techniques to boost your sexual exhaustion recovery:

  • Engage in Semen Retention

I’ve written an excellent, and probably the longest article on semen retention on the web. Do check it out.

In short: semen retention is the absolute pinnacle of doing NoFap on hard mode. While semen retention can be the most difficult way to do NoFap, I can promise you you’ll get the most benefits out of this program that way, and furthermore, it’s going to take you the least amount of time.

The guys that end up having to do NoFap for 3 years in order to feel better are the ones that “edge” or try to watch softcore porn while telling themselves that softcore isn’t as bad as “normal” porn.

  • Do NoFap

This whole website is about NoFap – jump in on any article or category, and you’ll find a wealth of information to help you out in your NoFap journey.

  • Sexual Exhaustion can be Treated

The more fully you commit to NoFap, the easier it’s going to be for you to relieve your body from the symptoms of sexual exhaustion.

  • High Testosterone Levels can Help

Anything that you can do to boost your testosterone levels is going to be beneficial to easing your sexual exhaustion problems.

One of the main negative effects of too many ejaculations is the rise of prolactin and the decrease of testosterone levels in the body.

It has been proven that not masturbating for 7 days results in a 45.7% rise in testosterone levels.

  • Anxiety Leads to Masturbation and Sexual Exhaustion

Anxiety is one of the leading causes of masturbation. It is a well-known fact that reaching orgasm can have a stress relieving effect on the body. If you want to have an easier time doing NoFap, try to be as stress and anxiety-free as possible.

Perhaps use your free time to engage in some healthy outdoor activities can be a better stress reliever. Exercising (especially weight lifting) is also a good anti-anxiety tool.

 Sexual Exhaustion Questions and Answers: 

What is the Recovery Time for Sexual Exhaustion?

The minimum recovery time for sexual exhaustion is seven days in light cases.

For medium cases of sexual exhaustion, you can expect a recovery time of between seven and fourteen days.

For extreme cases, it can take up to 21 days or three weeks in order to cure yourself of all the effects of sexual exhaustion.

Are There Any Sexual Exhaustion Supplements?

Yes, there are certain supplements that can help you recover sooner from sexual exhaustion.

While there are no herbs that can cure most disorders and medical problems, excessive amounts of ejaculations do cause the body to lose a lot of trace minerals. For that reason, supplementing with these minerals can improve your health, and make the symptoms of sexual exhaustion less severe.

The best recovery supplements for naturally treating sexual exhaustion would be:

Zinc Supplements

Zinc is the most important male-oriented trace mineral. Being deficient in Zinc can lower your testosterone levels and cause feelings of fatigue.

Copper Supplements

Copper is not lost with masturbation, but the Zinc-Copper balance in the body is very important, which is why you want to eat food that contains copper when you are taking Zinc supplements. Males don’t need a dedicated copper supplement or pill.

Foods with copper are nuts, potatoes, beans, shellfish, oysters and organ meat.

Iron Supplements

Iron is also good as a recovery supplement, although you are better off getting it through eating food that contains iron rather than in pill form.

Most leafy green vegetables contain iron.

Can Sexual Exhaustion be Reversed?

Yes, the symptoms of sexual exhaustion can be reversed if you follow the proper treatment routine.

Sexual abstinence is the most important thing when it comes to reversing sexual exhaustion. The best thing you can do is to take a few weeks away from any kind of orgasm or ejaculation, as that’s going to massively speed up your recovery time.

The second most important thing (although highly optional) is to take natural recovery supplements. For most healthy guys that eat a clean, balanced diet, supplementing are not going to be needed.

What About Adrenal Fatigue?

According to Wikipedia, adrenal fatigue is a pseudo-scientific term, as there is no scientific evidence that it exists – at least not in the way most people imagine it.

While it is highly probable that excessive sexual activity can cause a variety of problems with your hormones and adrenal glands, the recovery time and treatment is not as complicated as homeopathic practitioners would make it seem. Just living healthily, not masturbating to porn, getting enough sleep, and drinking caffeine-containing drinks in moderate amounts is going to be enough to recover your adrenal function in just a few days.

It is recommended to drink up three coffees a day. More than that can cause adrenal fatigue-related problems, like insomnia.

Is Sexual Fatigue and Sexual Exhaustion the Same Thing?

Yes, sexual fatigue and sexual exhaustion are the same things – only the terminology is different.

Sexual fatigue might sound as being more short-term than sexual exhaustion. Perhaps a person can experience sexual fatigue if he has sex multiple times in the same day, while sexual exhaustion sounds like something that happens after prolonged periods of sexual activity, with symptoms that may last for a long time afterwards.

Can Sexual Exhaustion be Cured with a Porn Reboot?

Yes, a porn reboot is a major part of the recovery from sexual exhaustion.

A porn reboot is part of the 90-day NoFap challenge, and it means that you are not allowed to watch porn or masturbate in that given time period. Some guys decide to masturbate without pornography, and while that might work to cure your sexual exhaustion, the recovery time is going to be increased.

Can Sexual Exhaustion Cause Insomnia?

Yes, sexual exhaustion can cause insomnia and other related issues.

Anything that causes stress to your body can cause insomnia. Inflammation is a serious thing. Even a good habit, like weight-lifting, can cause stress, insomnia, and inflammation when done in excess.

Can Sexual Exhaustion Cause Physical Pain?

Pelvic pain and other related physical pains are often felt by females. Males don’t usually have any physical pain when having intercourse.

Most evidence points that sexual exhaustion shouldn’t cause physical pain. The only possible scenario is a loss of sensitivity in the genitals due to over-stimulation. Another problem is rough masturbation, also called having a “death grip.” That can cause damage to the delicate skin on the penis, and that may lead to pain while having sex.

Not masturbating is going to cure all of these problems. Genital skin rejuvenation can happen as soon as three days after stopping with all masturbation activities.

Can Sexual Exhaustion Have an Effect on Dopamine Levels?

Yes, all ejaculations produce a variety of chemicals in the brain, including dopamine and serotonin. It doesn’t matter whether you have sex with a partner or do solitary masturbation, all types of sex lead to producing a lot of dopamine.

In order to be healthy, you want as much of your dopamine to be released when doing healthy, natural things. Most dopamine released by artificial stimulation and drugs is going to lead towards having more addiction-oriented problems.

What is the Best Diet to Treat Sexual Exhaustion?

While sexual exhaustion can’t be caused by having a bad diet, eating better types of food is going to make you healthier, stronger and less likely to feel fatigue.

Eating more vegetables, fruits, meat and healthy fats (like fish) is going to have the biggest impact on improving your health. All testosterone-boosting foods can have a positive effect on your energy levels, so do research this topic more deeply.

Can Sexual Exhaustion Lead to Anxiety?

Yes, sexual exhaustion does lead to anxiety.

Anything that makes you feel weaker is going to lead to anxiety, as stress is a motivation and confidence killer. To further complicate things, masturbating to porn makes a person suffer from social anxiety, which is going to increase the magnitude of all other anxiety-related issues.

The reason why there is a correlation between anxiety and porn is because porn makes you have unrealistic demands of the people around you, while also making you less assertive.

That is a bad combination, as not being assertive is going to make other people treat you less well. Watching porn also makes you develop fetishes, and weird fetishes can make it difficult to have a partner that is going to properly be able to satisfy them.

Is it True That Sexual Exhaustion Can Cause a Zinc Deficiency?

Yes, there are are hundreds of vitamins and minerals that are lost with each ejaculation, with Zinc being the most important.

Semen can have a Zinc concentration that can be over 100 times more than the concentration found in your blood.
