27 You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Matthew 5:27-28

19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 1 Corinthians 6:19

8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Galatians 6:8

God is truly miraculous. I went to the county fair with my girlfriend the other day. Dear Lord was it degenerate and sinful a place. Women were dressed in see through yoga pants without panties and no shirt nothing but a bra. I shit you not just bras. I could see swarms and crowds of women dressed far beyond the legal standard. I prayed to God before walking in that he'd lend me his heart and untempted eyes and he did. Not once did I look at one of them with lustful arousal, however I discovered the psychological aspect beyond physical going on in temptation. I saw how I'd turn to see even if it did not arouse me how I'd try to take a mental capture to fap to it later as the old birthed me would but these things were quickly stomped by Christ consciousness. I didnt even get a half chub after bumping into innumerable sexy sweaty bouncy women.

After freeing myself for a month and now seeing my penis as just a body part subdued under my control I realize that lustful intent is so deeply programmed in us that it is impossible to truly look upon a woman without lustful intent. Even if your dick is tamed, just one smile or wink out of wedlock that has crept into your heart has fallen short of the glory of God. That is why we need Christ's forgiveness as we do our best follow his command.

if thy right eye causes you to sin then pluck it out.

Stay away from anime. It's far too close to hentai all of it except childrens tv anime. This post I'm writing isn't an /a/tier post but one to make you look at the ad creep sin has put in your life. Anime as an industry is designed to shove sex into your face at every angle. There's lolis everywhere and this should disgust you as a born again man. Naruto ffs had Tsunade's huge cleavage and the sexy jutsus and all that show up on day time television all over the world.

Can't even remember the last time I fapped. All my energy is directed towards my new found love.

"Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. "

I understand it now. It is not about yourself, but you and her. You are not meant to simply fornicate and discard eachother, but to form a bond, to care for eachother, to grow together and support eachother. To ensure happyness. This is meant with reaping eternal life. I wish you all the best, I love you all.

Indulging in passions is sinful. You can masturbate without lust, doesn't make it okay. Unless you have no control over your body (such as in the case of nocturnal emissions), you have no excuse for masturbating.

That's something which applies to me as well. I've tried to stop cold turkey many times but I always end up looking at even more disgusting things. If I just "did it" routinely for two minutes every few days or so I wouldn't feel the desire to watch endless streams of porn.

I know it's still a sin but is it alright to consciously reduce the sin step by step? Tbh I feel quite ashamed to talk about this even to strangers on the internet.

I think its because its pleasure for the sake of pleasure, and crucially pleasure of the self.

God has provided the most wonderful range of foods for us in creation for us to get our nutrients which makes us function at our best. You could do only bread and water, but it wouldn't be what God intended, and depending on the type of bread you'd most likely be very unhealthy. Similarly sexual pleasure should be derived through giving of it to the other (your wife or husband) and procreation and not simply for you to get a buzz to satisfy your own desires.

Because pleasure for the sake of pleasure is insular. It selfishly puts your needs above others, its diminishes love, that is, self sacrifice, charity, submission of your desires for to will the good of the other. Lust, greed, gluttony, all of these say I put ME above God and what he has decreed, because I want my buzz, fulfillment, satisfaction or whatever from this thing, and not from Him.

Nah, I believe the answer to this would be that God is defined as a maximally great being who exists necessarily and is the best thing that there possibly could be. If he's not, then he is not God. Therefore his attributes of omniscience, omnipotence, benevolence, for example are inherent to his being, to his nature. Such attributes have not been invented by him, as if it were possible for God to exist independent of these attributes. The same applies to love. God cannot exist independent of love, as if inventing it were ever an option. To love, to be loved, to be love itself is better than the negation of all those options, therefore those options which love is not negated comprises God. Ya dig?

Hunger is only a passion if it is satisfied beyond the necessary. That's called gluttony and that's a sin too. Masturbation is worse though, because there is no situation in which the act of autoeroticism can be justified, while the act of eating food can easily be justified.

"Do not join with wine bibbers, nor with those who glut themselves on meat. For drunkards and gluttons come to poverty, and lazing about clothes one in rags."

"Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. In contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law."

>You have a mental disease, God never asked you to justify your pleasure, just to have it in the right way without hurting others

Much of the behavior criticized by the prophets and the apostles does not harm others. We are rather told not to harm ourselves: "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body."

>You don't die if you eat only raw bread and water or abstain from meat

That's why we fast as often as we can.


9b422e No.422837

>>422823

So it works both ways, where our understanding of God can be limited by our human logic, for e.g. you say the definition of God is still a maximally great being (MGB), but in this instance such a definition includes a being's ability to define their own attributes. Having the ability to do this is clearly better than not being able to do this, in which case you're correct, but we're still talking about God. God who by the same logic is love, is all good, is all knowing, all powerful, everywhere all the time.

Or on the flip side we can admit that God doesn't have to be constrained by human logic because he's God, and its better to not be (and so meeting the MGB definition). But again we're still talking about God.

ee24f9 No.422843

You don't understand that God is not something, holds no attributes, holds no definition

God decided to become something defined by himself, everything happens because his will allows it, there is nothing that happens outside of his will

The reason you exist in a certain way is because of his will to predestine you to be what he wanted, he is selfish because he is first in all decisions, but is that bad?

The rest of your post is acceptable to someone like me who isn't too sure of what he's talking about yet, potentially with Calvinism remaining an option. Apart from the bit about him being selfish. Again this goes against the definition of God.

But we've been over this. I can't take bait like >>422845 if its not sincere. If you are sincere, do some reading before trying to claim you know whats what. Or start a new thread I just remembered this is nofap.

These are His literal words and cannot be taken out of context without doublethink.

Again this is a logical fallacy, pleasure is not a sin if it hurts none(including yourself, that's a way you would argue for sodomy to be not healthy because it hurts you sometime, but you can be gay without enduring anal intercourse)

>Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword.

He sure did anon! You seem to be getting there. A place of great pleasure and joy with Him at the centre. Only he will fulfill and satisy; beatin your meat bashing the bishop stroking the musuhroom tip will not, and is not supposed to.

>God did not made the world as a place of suffering

No, we did that unfortunately :( and we don't deserve anything but death for this, let alone any short burst of physical pleasure we might be afforded from masturbating and orgasming (disregarding any moral element to for a sec it as you do for that example). But no, he went waaaaayyy further than that, praise be to God!

>pleasure is not a sin if it hurts none

God knows whats best for us, and has set out how he knows we will best flourish as truly satisfied, truly joyful beings. Even if something seems like it's not harming yourself or anyone else, truth is it is, it is chipping away at you somehow. Any sin going unchecked can easily get out of control. Pic related. And where is doesn't seem like it is or ever will be getting out of control for you, permitting it will be causing havoc for someone else somewhere else, due to people's different character compositions. We all respond differently to different things. If you think you're immune to the chaos of your sin, please humble yourself, and brace yourself for when it hits you.

He sure did anon. This is what we call a miracle. Look up and understand the role of miracles in the faith. The incarnation is often referred to as the grand miracle.

>This is not true, often humans have desires against love and God will never satisfy those, that's why for example africans are starving

Difference between material and spiritual starvation and satisfaction, anon. Desires against love are desires against God (aka sin). Desires for food as a starving african is is a desire for good, as as aforementioned God put the most wonderful range of tasty and interesting foods for us to get put nutrients from, and the negation of getting this nutrients is wrong. However even without these things we can still find satisfaction and comfort in God. That's why people die for God (or any cause beyond materialism, really), because they think that cause (in out case God) is more important than material satisfaction.

Certainly better not to fap at all, but if you are determined to fap do so without any porn or fantasy. I would argue that the whole "I'm going to sin anyway, may as well go all out" mentality is very dangerous, especially with porn's addictive quality. Looking at porn and masturbation are seperate sins, best not to do either but at the very least don't do both. Looking at porn pretty much always leads to masturbation, so there's no good reason or excuse to look at it ever again.

Fapping = fapping no matter to what.

If you start concentrating on the details of the sin then you will make the exact same sin less bad and thus better to do.

Regardless of what you tell me, this reeks of fagotry m8. The differences between men and women are for the different purposes of our bodies. You and I don't bare children or milk, hopefully. Likewise, women aren't supposed to be fighting in wars or hunting. Neither is "fairer" than the other. The human form as a whole is generally grotesque when analyzed to any degree of detail.

Very little of them is actually glandular though, in fact women with larger breasts often have issues feeding children.

In some women, but it varies tbh. Women are on aggregate weaker than men, and less fit to be warriors obviously, but not all are that way, just by the law of averages.

Hey guys I'd really like your advice on my situation. I came out of my longest streak yet (almost a month) and have started on my next streak of nofap (I believe I'm nearly at a week atm). I have just began full time work and have filled up my schedule so that there really isn't any room for boredom or idle hands. I have also began going to the gym regularly and sleeping well so I am healthy, employed and trying best to remain close to God.

At work, I am very sociable and get along very well with the rest of my colleagues, and have taken interest in a girl who I believe has also taken interest in me. My question is this, I am fairly certain she is a non-believer and yet at the same time she is one of my motivations for nofap; after fapping (especially prolonged streaks of it) I become insecure, less sociable and less confident in myself.

I feel like I am trapped between a rock and a hard place. Talking to a female, flirting with her is all a part of manhood, something I haven't done very much in my life. I feel emboldened by my success and use it as fuel to not masturbate. However her not being Christian is the problem, and if I follow her down that path it would be even worse for my soul. Should I continue to pursue her or is this just going to be a painful path either way. Pray for me guys, pray for me to have wisdom.

I have been drawn to Christianity in many ways as of late. At this point I am chewing, but cannot swallow it whole.

Became an incel officially as of late, hit the 6 months barrier. Even when I had a qt girlfriend for a time I always had this constant feeling of inadequacy and never being enough. Since I lost her I have gradually become less successful and my sanity has been eroded more and more.

Now everytime I see an attractive girl, especially one I know or used to know, it is a dagger in my chest. I'm masturbating like I am a 14 year old boy again.

You aren't wrong. Every one here has an image of the person they want to be. Sanctified. We aren't that person yet, but one day we hope we will be. We crave it. You just don't realize what you are craving, or maybe you do because…

It is beautiful and, thankfully, you can believes this. In order for it to feel able to make the commitment to Christ, as well as wanting to (which you seem to already do), I think it'll help greatly in being convinced of 3 things: Arguments for theism/the God of the bible, the reliability of the NT and the evidence for the ressurection. InspiringPhiliosophy has video series on youtube on all these things. Chew over these some more then, if you can, swallow.

Also go over Bahnsen's presuppositional apologetic (vids on youtube) which essentiallly says that without Him (God not Bahnsen lol) you're forced to acknowledge that any of your other "can'ts" don't actually matter, so you have no reason to care if you do or don't have those can'ts in your life. In fact without Him nothing matters so theres literally no point in anything.

Once you've accepted Christ, I would wager that eventually all the other can'ts likely fall into place and where they don't this won't be an issue because your identity will be rooted in Christ and not in these things.

I think a huge part of it is boredom man. You understand you don't need it, but you have an hour to kill so you end up fapping. Many people here recommend working out or finding a hobby because it can fill the time in a better way, giving you something to do besides masturbation. Will pray for you man.

I am asking myself why can't i change? why can't i be like the man God wants me to be? and so on. And i am afraid that Jesus will abandon me and leave me alone to let me die.

1. Don't count days. Post what day it is here, then forget about it. Once a week or so, come back, post an update and some thoughts, and there you go.

2. Create a system/routine. Systems will get you the same result each time so long as you follow it. This what my current system looks like (Note I'm currently around 3 years unemployed):

5:00 am: Wake up.

5:30 am: Head to Gym

5:45 am: Workout

6:35 am: Leave

6:45 am: Eat Breakfast

7:00 am: Check news / Work on a personal project for an hour.

8:00 am: Shower, read a book, pray, not necessarily in that order.

etc etc etc. You get the idea. Which brings me to my next point.

3. Be active everyday. You don't have to be like me and go to a gym, but try and be active everyday. Science has proven that it will give you an energy boost, wake you up, and so on and so forth.

4. Make sure you get enough Vitamin D. It'll help you with depression.

5. Get a physical done. You may want to inquire about your prostate health to your doctor. Many young guys who have masturbated too much may have damaged it. This is what screwed over my 75+ day streak once. Yes your Doctor will insert his finger in your butt, get over it. It's necessary to check the health of it.

6. This: >>418353 >>418426 and in case the post gets pushed off, here's the important information:

>My advice would be not to tell yourself "Not thinking about it" over and over again, because the more you try not to think about it, the more you actually will. The human brain is really bad for that kind of thing. I don't know the proper name for this, but I'm sure you'd be able to find out the proper name in a psychology book.

This is how hypnotists trick people into accepting thoughts into their minds. They'll tell them not to think of X, and that's all they'll think of.

7. If you are tactile like me, try writing this on a piece of paper a million times: "I will not fap", or "I will not look at porn", or even "My name is Anon and I will not fap". I've noticed this sends messages to my brain that tell "Hey! We really don't want to fap!".

Why should our Lord abandon you? You know what you've done is a sin, you clearly repent and you believe that he's our Saviour and only way to the Father. Why should He leave you?

Trust me, I know how hard it is.

Every time i f*ck up and see that I have insulted God, I too feel sorrow. This is contrition of the heart which is good since you see that what you've done is a sin.

But what else is there but to try again and again to do as our Lord says? Our lot in life is to try and live as good a christian life as possible while avoiding all the snares and traps that Satan lays out for us.

Trust in our Lord and God. The pain we live with on Earth is fleeting but necessary.

I'm weak. I could feel my self-control wearing thin yesterday and I didn't take the decisive action I needed to I've gotten a lot better at controlling myself, but it's so hard to keep my priorities straight in the moment.

A couple more months, and it will have been a year since I started trying to quit. I thought quitting biting my nails was difficult. It's hard to believe this is such a difficult habit to break. Then again, even someone as great as St. Mary of Egypt didn't get through this all so easily.

God have mercy on me. St. John the Long-Suffering, please pray for me and for all of the others attempting to break through the passions. As you triumphed over the flesh and were purified through your struggle, might we also do the same through God's infinite grace. I ask the same, St. Mary of Egypt, pray for us, that God might keep the enemy's fiery spears from piercing our hearts. That God might keep us from trials greater than what we can bear.

Holy Spirit, please do not flee from me, the unworthy and sinful one. Through the love and mighty sacrifice of Christ, come and dwell in us, cleanse us from every stain, and heal our souls.

Lord my God, please grant us the self-control we need to keep ourselves from sin!

think about these questions,

#1 what is your incentive for doing nofap, what is the benefit and what palpable consequences will you incur? do the benefits outweigh the consequences?

#2 what methods do you use to avoid porn and fapping, when one method fails what is your backup?

#3 why did you fail in the past, what state of mind or environment or emotion initiates your relapse and how will you prevent future relapses from occurring?

if you can't answer these questions quickly and cogently for yourself, then overcoming your fapping habit will be extremely difficult.

But when your motivation and methods are clear in your mind and important to you then overcoming fapping is almost trivial, a simple forgoing of transient pleasure at no cost, no damage, no harm to you. Like giving up ice cream or some other trivial luxury.

I've been going on 3 days now which is honestly an accomplishment for myself because I was basically addicted to porn for the past few months. Plus, and really my main problem, I'm restless at night and it helped to rub one out.

I've gotten on a better sleep schedule, early to bed, early to rise, that really helps me, and I've started reading in bed an hour or so before I go to sleep. At the moment, I feel really good and no desires are coming to me. I hope I can keep this up.

But seriously if have problem getting to sleep and that's why you keep failing, get a lamp, a nice low light bulb, and some books and start reading before you go to sleep. It really detoxes my mind, just flushes out all the shit and by time I shut off the lamp and close my eyes, the only thing on my mind is what I just read.

24 hours in now, which is nothing. I've tried this many times. Often I'd go at it with allot of gusto which sooner or later wound down, then I'd relapse, then that sends me on a downward spiral of shame, defeatism, binge, more shame, defeatism, binge, and on and on. It's a cycle. The mental lawyering and trickery seems to start back up after about a week. That's about the point in the back of my mind I know a relapse might be more exciting and pleasurable. I was thinking today, and porn isn't my only bad habit, the reason I'm so miserable is because I like to repeat horrible defeatist depressing thoughts in my head all the time, and then I convince myself they're all true, and then in my safe bubble of self generated hopelessness I have all the excuses I need to indulge in any form of immediate gratification I desire. Bitch of it is they're not true. I'm not a tragic lost soul I've just been childish and stupid. God knows my flaws and has forgiven me so I'll pray for wisdom.

Should I take this as "Take a break from the computer until you break the addiction"? Or should I take it more literally and actually cut my offending hand off(more realistically, break it)?

When I was a kid I was exposed to porn. First grade I think. My dad was very sinful in that he watched porn and cheated on my mom for pretty much the entire marriage. She tried to stick it out, and she did for 17 years knowing exactly what was going on but still kept going because of my sister and I. I can't imagine that agony. She talked to a priest about it and he advised her that the circumstances did validate a divorce. Can't remember exactly what he said. So they're divorced now and I've been struggling to get over porn for about five years now. I high school I think I watched it about 3 or 4 times a day and masturbated and got involved with loose girls. Lust has been the biggest cross that I've had to bear in my life. But now it's once every two days and some weeks when I pray enough I can go days without it. It is a waning influence but I can still feel its claws in me.

There is life after porn. It's time to live it. Will check back in with progress. Will also check back in if I relapse. My priest reminded me that living chastely comes from God's grace the last time I confessed this. I think he could detect a little pride. But hopefully a relapse won't happen.

Of late I've noticed I've been getting many sexual urges again. I'm about five and a months in and I'm worried that once I hit this 6 month milestone that I'll relent to sin and hurt our Lord.

I've done before when I've hit milestones, and typically when I get these urges before a milestone they come on strong. So I ask that those in this thread may pray for me that I may have the strength to continue to abstain after the milestone instead of just giving in to temptation.

It'll also be exam season for me, which in the past has led me to fall due to the crux of momentary relaxation I suppose.

Day 55. I noticed that porn no longer holds an interest to me. While browsing the internet today, came across some unexpectedly, and honestly, I wasn't even interested.

I also noticed my interest in women is starting to back to the way it was before I went down this hole. I believe they call this rebooting. Honestly, I'm disgusted at my old self. I don't even know why I ever wanted to be like that.


0850b2 No.430436

I got addicted about a year ago. I am currently on day 16, and all temptations have gone. I have been working out more, reading more( the Bible and other books as well, and spending more time being social. All of my past relapses happened due to having too much free time and a wandering mind. I also found a couple verses to be helpful even if that is not their direct meaning.

>Genesis 39:12 "She caught him by his cloak and said, 'Come to bed with me!' But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house."

When I would start to feel temptation, I would leave my phone and go walk in nature to get myself relaxed and to get my mind off of the topic.

This other more serious one I read was >Hebrews 12:4 "In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood."

I read this verse and got the idea that after each relapse immediately following I would draw a line on the inside of my thigh with a pen knife. My brain has started to subconsciously associate pornography with pain.

Pray for me, I think this one will be the one that does it.

Thing that works for me is just being out of the house as much as possible.

Also helps is having a crush on a girl, or trying to pursue a relationship. It focuses you. I like a girl at the moment and I just finished exams too, I don't even think about fapping.

Leave early and come home late, it's kinda fun too tbh to be out and about.

Pic related, It's Blessed Matt Talbot, his patronage is alcoholics and addicts. To quit drinking he never carried money with him when he was about, and didn't hang around with his old drinking crowd anymore.

This man speaks the truth. Waking up early makes me too tired to even think, at last until I reach my kitchen to make breakfast. At this point I eat a light breakfast, read the bible and then go to my workout destination. Having a busy schedule which doesnt allow for wandering thoughts/boredom is a huge help for not falling into a trap of thinking what can be.

You want pain blast out 100 burpees or hold a wall sit until you collapse. You'll feel all the pain you want. Lactic acid can burn so bad you'll wish you were just being cut. Do it in a manly productive healthy way. Cutting is emotionally unstable teenage girl behavior, and pretty sure it's sinful.

You will always win when God helps you. I know how you feel. For months I was never able to stay away from it for more than 3 days. That was my "record" for a very long time.

I kept failing and got back up hundreds of times. I know it's frustrating, at some point I also thought I'd never make it. But now I'm at day 9 and everything has been so much better.

I'll pray for you but ultimately you already have it inside you. Stay firm and you will make it.

So maybe skinny model girls are unhealthy and terrible choice to bear a child, thus nofap also directs you to look for a suitable partner.

Could someone please advise I don't know what to do. I'm thinking of taking lead from Matt. 5:30/Mark 9:43

>30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

>43 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire.

I have been trying to stop this constantly for years and have made practically no progress.

I've always thought an internet filter would be pointless as the change needs to be in my mind and in my heart not on whether my computer can access particular sites or not. I gave up smoking after 9 and a half years still having cigarettes lying around my room and just did it cold turkey and thought nofap has to be done in this way to truely overcome it (i.e. no external help apart from God who'll provide me with strength). I am still kinda of that opinion, as there will always be youtube with sexual music videos etc that I can go to when I do fall and give into an urge.

I'm also reluctant to give up access to /christian/ which I think I would have to if I got a filter. I would be able to have friends set a password for the filter so I can't access it and change it at all. I know you can set exceptions on the filters but I would be nervous of doing so if my friends saw I had set 8chan as an exception because I'm not sure if they'd be aware but they could google but 8ch has a bad rep, it is called the darkest reaches of the internet after all. But /christian/, for all it's faults has been very important in developing my journey into the faith and find that there are lots of questions and discussion that people ask that I want to know about, and I contribute some answers from time to time. I've found a community here that I appreciate and don't want to give up. Thats the other reason I don't want to install an internet filter.

I don't know if I'm being silly by not heeding to the advice in scripture I mention above, if I were to install the filter I honestly don't know what difference it might make, sometimes I think it could be a really good idea. I do have lots of other resources I can (and should go to) to find out more about the faith, books to buy blogs and articles to read etc, but wouldn't be part of a community like I am here at /christian/. Although I definitely do spend too much time on here when I should be reading my bible or other books I think.

Should I throw in the towel on /christian/ and part ways if it might mean a chance at relinquishing sin? Has anyone else had experience of using a filter? Did it do the job nd help you abstain or was it pointless and it didn't stop you anyway? Any advice appreciated.


ecb1be No.433165

>>432919

I would do it. I've been at this for 6 years. The first 2 I made progress, but the last 4 (up until this streak of 30+ days) have been pretty terrible. And I think a big reason for that was I didn't admit my weakness, and get an ironclad filter set up.

Via the k9 blocker, I blocked porn and also all the other sites I've accessed porn on (twitter, tumblr, reddit, 4chan and this site). I don't know the password. I would have to re-install windows to get around it, which takes over an hour (so I hope I would come to my senses if I was thinking about relapsing).

If I need to use them I go on my phone (where I don't have the habit of looking at porn so I can trust myself). I understand not wanting to stop coming here, but the fact of the matter is that porn is one click away here. It's dangerous. Also this place is nice, but real life is better.

I also didn't even access these sites or my other time sink websites for 3 weeks as a detox.

Just do eet!

The ironic thing is they're effectively removing themselves from ever finding any guy who would find them attractive by falling for this nonsense.

Other factors are involved. In the past, I never had a problem attracting women, and I used to masturbate at least3-4 times a day. I had naturally high testosterone levels, was attractive, and outgoing. Dantesque libertines and degenerates have at least the last two going for them, plus money to blow partying, which attracts degenerate women as well. These are just some of the factors.

That said, there's no question that nofap is good for you and can help you attract women.
