Solve Life’s Mysteries with Sexual Deprivation

Sexual Deprivation aka Sexual Anorexia

Sexual deprivation, also better known as the “act of sexual abstinence” has its roots in most modern religions.

Today, however, we are not going to discuss sexual deprivation in a religious manner. Because for most people, religion doesn’t matter these days.

We are looking for maximum gains, with the least amount of effort.

We are looking for Sexual Deprivation.

What is Sexual Deprivation?

Sexual deprivation is the deliberate act of withholding from any kind of sexual pleasure.

Before you ask, no, sexual deprivation is not a lifelong ordeal.

In the context of NoFap (and semen retention), sexual deprivation is implemented as a short-term boost to your porn reboot.

Depriving yourself of sexual pleasures (including any kind of edging, masturbation, and orgasms) is going to bring your dopamine levels to a new low.

Low dopamine levels are correlated with a lot of benefits, including an increased drive towards self-improvement, increased resilience, tolerance to stress and improved creativity.

Of all the things you can change in your life, removing sexual pleasure is going to have the most dramatic change.

People have been trying out all kinds of different fad diets and some have even tried to go the vegan route in order to feel better. Yet people are unwilling to try out the simplest solution of all – to abstain from sex.

This deliberate removal of sexual satisfaction can serve as a catalyst for all your further self-improvement efforts.

Benefits of Sexual Deprivation

There are many benefits of sexual deprivation. Some are weirder than the others.

  • More Free Time

It is obvious that quitting masturbation and pornography can free up a lot of time. Even light porn viewers can easily get 3-5+ additional hours of free time per week, although people that have had a history of masturbation addiction can look forward to freeing up to 10+ hours every week.

That is easily enough time for you to add an additional skill set to your resume or start to participate in an interesting, social hobby.

  • Better Hygiene

Whether through masturbation or through sexual contact with another person, being sexual brings out a lot of hormones and other chemicals to the surface of your skin. People have noticed that they smell differently after sex, which is why depriving yourself of sexual contact for a few months can be a good way to improve your hygiene habits.

  • Easy Porn Reboot

Doing a porn reboot (meaning learning to withdraw from watching pornography) is a difficult activity that can reap a lot of awesome benefits to those that pass through.

A porn reboot (also known in some circles as “NoFap”) can either be done in the “lite,” normal way or in “hard mode.”

Doing NoFap in hard mode means not ejaculating for 90 days. It also means not edging to pornography for the same amount of time. Viewing attractive women on social media is off-limits.

Less than 5% of guys manage to go through NoFap on hard mode. Try to be one of them.

  • You’ll be More Attractive to Other People

No one exactly knows why, but almost all NoFap veterans (“fapstronauts“) have noticed that they are more attractive and interesting to the opposite sex.

The increase in attractiveness begins roughly 3 weeks after the last time you ejaculated. Some people say that the boost in attractiveness is due to the release of pheromones, but I’m more inclined into thinking that not fapping to porn increases your confidence, boosts testosterone levels and makes you far less anxious in social situations.

You don’t have to take my word for this – try it out and write back in case it doesn’t work (no one has done this yet).

Side-Effects of Sexual Deprivation

Naturally, all good things in life have a few side-effects.

Doing a deliberate session of sexual anorexia is a safe activity, meaning there are going to be few if any side-effects to this activity.

I’ll do my best here to list all of the possible side-effects of sexual deprivation:

  • Blue Balls (testicular pain)

Blue balls is a problem for younger guys that are raging with hormones.

Not masturbating can cause testicular pain. Especially if you masturbated on a daily basis before abstaining. The period where you’ll have blue balls starts around 10-14 days after your last orgasm, and may last up to 30 days afterwards.

The good news is that after that, you will be pain-free.

  • Neverending Horniness

Who would have thought that not ejaculating for weeks on end can cause a person to be horny?

Anyway, this is true – you may be horny, and this may lead to you acting weirdly around your partner. Perhaps telling your loved one that you are doing NoFap could be of help if they the understanding type.

  • Low Libido

Low libido (also called “the flatline”) is a problem that affects about half of the people that do NoFap.

There are several different scientific reasons why, one of which has something to do with neuroplasticity and the brain working on rewiring itself. Suffice to say, don’t be afraid of the flatline, it will go away on its own, and there is no need for you to masturbate in order to check whether things “work” down there. After NoFap, they’ll work better than ever.

How to Start Sexual Deprivation

You can start sexual deprivation in the same way you would start doing NoFap – quit masturbating, with the sole addition that you will also not be having an orgasm in any other meaningful way.

You may have sex with your partner, but you won’t be going through the final stage.

Note: don’t do the so-called “injaculation” method. That stuff sounds horrible and is probably dangerous.

Also – remember that edging is not allowed.

What is Sexual Anorexia?

Sexual anorexia is quite similar to sexual deprivation – theoretically, they are one and the same thing, with the sole difference that sexual anorexia is involuntary, and felt in people that have a temporary aversion to sexual intimacy.

Since you are a healthy young adult that does want to have sex, you’ll be participating in the “sexual deprivation” group. Other folks which are going to go through similar things as you will, but not because of their own decision, are going to go in the “sexual anorexia” group.

Benefits of Sexual Anorexia

The benefits of sexual anorexia are the same as sexual deprivation, with the sole difference being that since sexual anorexia is involuntary, most people won’t actually feel the benefits in their body due to the underlying depression and other psychological issues.

Side-Effects of Sexual Anorexia

The side-effects are also the same, although it is probable that people with sexual anorexia are going to have a more difficult time handling them.

Sexual Deprivation Questions and Answers:

Can Sexual Deprivation Improve Mental Health?

Yes, sexual deprivation can and will improve your mental health and clarity.

This is simply how the male brain works – it is only when you are not sexually satiated that you can feel the full power of your ambition and competitive drive.

Looking back on your life, you can easily remember that your most professionally or educationally productive periods were the ones where you didn’t pay much attention to girls or dating. This doesn’t mean that you were celibate – it just means that even if you were seeing someone, that happened naturally and it wasn’t your main focus.

The same is going to be true for your future.

The more outcome independent you become about your sexual life, the more ambitious and energetic you are going to be.

There are only so many things you can focus on a daily basis, so keep your focus deep and narrow. Don’t let side-activities take your time.

I’ve noticed that focus and attention span go down after you try to work on more than three different things in the same day.

Power, money, and women only come after you get your life together.

Sexual deprivation is just another way to achieve outcome independence.

What is the Treatment for Sexual Anorexia?

Sexual anorexia is another term for sexual deprivation, although in these cases the people suffering from this symptom are not doing it voluntarily (as is the case of sexual deprivation).

The reason why some people (and especially women) suffer from sexual anorexia, is because they have been traumatized in the past, and are now afraid of sexually opening to another person.

The key to treating sexual anorexia (in yourself or your partner) is to build trust and have a long-term commitment.

You should never be pushy or aggressive, and you should not expect that the person you are dating is going to be someday able to overcome this symptom.

That’s why it is important to decide early on whether you are going to be able to deal with this scenario, and if so, let go of the person with sexual anorexia so that they find a partner that is suitable to them.

For most guys, I’d advise skipping trying to be a white knight and save other people from their problems.

The world is a tough place, and you need to focus on yourself first and foremost.

What is Emotional Anorexia?

Emotional anorexia is similar to sexual anorexia, with the difference being that emotional anorexia is all about emotional withdrawal.

Emotional anorexia is far more prevalent in the general population, and just as sexual anorexia, it occurs more often in women than in men.

The good thing about emotional anorexia is that it can be more easily treated than sexual anorexia, although a full recovery is pretty much impossible.

If you are dating a girl that shifts between being cold and passive, and girly and loving, you might enjoy the ups and downs of this relationship, but you should never expect a girl like that to eventually become capable of loving you as a normal girl can.

That part of her character has simply not developed or has been traumtized in her early childhood.

Stable relationships with such people are not possible, and you should not enter into a relationship that is not going to offer you the stability that you need in order to build a productive and successful lifestyle.

How Does Alcohol Affect Sexual Deprivation?

Yes, alcohol can affect the quality of your sexual life.

Here’s a quick summary:

Small amounts of alcohol can actually be beneficial. Yes, I said it – who would expect a site named AntiDopamine to advise drinking small amounts of alcohol?

Of all the stimulants that are existence today, alcohol is probably the closest to being able to both be stimulating yet still allowing you to properly function on a daily basis. There are hundreds of guys in history that have been occasional drinkers, and yet were successful enough to have their names remembered for all eternity.

The same is not true for pot smokers by the way.

Anyway, the trick with alcohol is to not drink it in excess amounts, as in those cases the effects of alcohol on your sexual health is going to be negative (i.e., weak or no erections, hormonal problems, emotional problems and so on).

Can Sleep Deprivation Affect Sexual Health?

Yes, sleep deprivation can affect your sexual health, but not in the way you may imagine.

Sleep deprivation can negatively affect all areas of your life, including your testosterone production, mental clarity (known as “brain fog”), as well as erection quality.

It is true that most people demand a unique amount of sleep per day. We all have a different biological “clock.”

It is possible that some guys can sleep five-hours a day and feel great.

However, the vast majority of you are not like that, meaning that you are going to need at least seven to eight hours of sleep each day.

Anything less than that and you are going to function in a non-optimal way.

Always prioritize your sleeping pattern before other things.

It’s better to be slightly late with a non-critical work task than to be sleep deprived.
