Are there any side effects of not ejaculating?
Yes, there are some. They include: • Decreased fertility • Loss of sexual desire • Increased risk of cancer • Weakness or paralysis If you have these problems, then it’s better to stop ejaculation immediately. However, many men don’t want to do so because they feel that they’re doing something wrong if they aren’t releasing their seed every day. Some men may even think that they shouldn’t ejaculate at all. So, let’s see what happens if you keep ejaculating without releasing your seed.
The Benefits of Ejaculating Without Ejaculating
It’s always good to know the facts about things that affect our lives. And here we go! There are several advantages of not ejaculating. Let’s see them now…
1) You’ll Feel Better About Yourself
You might have heard that ejaculation increases testosterone levels, but what does that mean exactly?
Well, it means that when you’re having fun with someone else, you get excited and feel like yourself again. When you’re in a relationship with someone else, your hormones become suppressed. Without someone to share your life with, you won’t be able to enjoy the pleasures of life. Nature has programmed us in such a way to make sure we keep on enjoying life by finding someone to mate with. This means that when you’re all by yourself, you won’t feel as happy as you could be. You may even begin to feel down or depressed without someone else with you all the time.
Ejaculation helps you to get out of your own head. You’ll be able to feel more outgoing and extroverted. Your confidence will go through the roof. In other words, you won’t feel like a loser all the time.
You may not have thought about it before, but feeling like a loser can be a side effect of not ejaculating for a long time.
With all these benefits, not ejaculating seems like a no-brainer.
2) You’ll Be Able to Think Clearer
Have you ever been in the middle of an argument with someone, and then your mind goes completely blank?
This is something that happens to everyone from time to time, but if it happens all the time then you may have a problem. The brain needs a certain level of fluidity in order to be able to come up with answers to problems. Your brain operates in a similar way to how a computer works, in that it requires electricity in order to function properly. If you’re running low on juice, then your brain won’t be able to perform at maximum level.
When a man ejaculates, his testosterone levels drop and his brainpower decreases as a result. While more testosterone might seem like a good thing, this isn’t always the case. In fact, an excess of testosterone can cause a decrease in mental performance just as much as a deficiency can. If you’re planning on studying for a big test or an important work assignment, then it might not be the best idea to have lots of sexual activity beforehand.
The reason for this is that your mind needs to be operating at full capacity in order for you to remember important details and to avoid silly mistakes.
Do you have a big presentation at work tomorrow?
Perhaps you should hold off on the orgasms before then!
3) You’ll Be Able to Concentrate Better
Have you ever been sitting in class, and suddenly become completely clueless of what the teacher is saying?
Or perhaps you’ve lost interested during a movie, or even while playing a video game. This can be very frustrating if it happens often, as it can be hard to regain your focus afterwards. This is because your brain requires constant stimulation in order to stay alert and attentive. Orgasms provide a huge release of oxytocin, which is a hormone that promotes sleepiness and can cause you to become unresponsive.
While orgasms do have the ability to keep you awake, if you have too many of them in a short period of time then they will have the opposite effect. You might find that you need to take a nap after an extended session of masturbation. This is because your brain will be tired as a result of all the blood flow being concentrated in your genitals rather than in the brain.
It’s best to avoid this by either regulating how many times you ejaculate per day, or by avoiding it altogether if you’re worried about losing focus. It might not be exactly convenient, but concentrating will definitely be easier than fumbling around with yourself in the middle of class!
4) You Won’t Be as Likely to Get Headaches
Have you ever felt a sudden onset of pain in the front of your head?
Perhaps your eyes started to water, or maybe you felt extreme sensitivity to light. If this sounds familiar to you, then you’ve probably experienced what many doctors refer to as a “sexual headache”. This is basically a mild version of a migraine that can be caused by sexual activity, especially for men.
These can affect your ability to think clearly and can be extremely painful if not addressed. Although the exact cause of these headaches is still unknown, it’s been said to be caused by a variety of factors such as emotional stress, certain medications, or most commonly, the act of sexual gratification. The medical community has yet to come to a strong conclusion on this matter, however many doctors have found that these headaches are most commonly found in males than in females.
Sometimes referred to as “orgasmic headaches”, these types of headaches can be avoided by limiting the number of orgasms you have per day. It might seem a bit unreasonable, but if you really want to avoid pain in the future then this might be a good option for you.
5) You’ll Be More Attractive
If you’re the kind of guy who has issues with low self esteem, then avoiding masturbation all together might seem like the best solution for you. If this is the case, it’s time to get over it! It’s true that many guys your age tend to have fuller lives compared to girls, as they tend to explore different things and go out more often. While this may be true, it doesn’t mean that you’re any less of a man for not doing those things.
The truth of the matter is, most girls don’t really care all that much about those things. What they care about is how you treat them. If you are respectful and kind towards them, then they will respect you in return. While some girls may be impressed by guys who go out all the time, the vast majority of them would prefer to be with a guy who will be there for them whenever they need him to be.
By avoiding masturbation you’re sending yourself into a downward spiral of depression that can effect your whole outlook on life. Just remember, there’s nothing wrong with you, and the only thing that you should be ashamed of is not having more self confidence!
6) You’ll Be a Better Listener
Think of a time where you were really attracted to someone. Perhaps it was that cute girl in your Calculus class, or maybe the charming waiter who served you at the local diner. Maybe it was even a celebrity! (We won’t ask how you knew they were attracted to them!
There’s a good chance that you tended to become a little more introverted around this person. You probably focused a lot more on what they had to say, and you were more than willing to agree with them on any topic that came up in conversation. Even your overall body language changed, as you tended to hang on their every word. If you were on a date with this person, there’s a good chance that you wouldn’t be able to eat or sit still the whole time.
Because you were attracted to them, of course! Our bodies have a tendency to act a little strange whenever we meet someone new that piques our interest. Our heart beats faster, we start sweating, and all sorts of other things happen that we don’t have full control over. It’s just the way humans are designed.
While this can be a pain if you’re trying to have a serious conversation with someone, there’s no doubting that it can make the world feel a little more magical at times! It’s not really something you can control either. Just like how you can’t control your body hair or your love of swimming, your feelings towards other people are something that are just part of who you are. The only thing you can do is embrace it and accept it for what it is.
Now apply this thinking to masturbation.
Even though you may have had mixed feelings about the act before, if you’re fully accepting masturbation as a natural process it shouldn’t be all that bad, right?
The guilt will be gone, and you’ll feel a sense of relief. More importantly, you’ll feel better about yourself as a person in general.
Embracing masturbation as a natural part of life will open you up to experiencing pleasure in ways you never thought were possible. While a lot of people talk about the pleasures of the flesh, it really is something that needs to be experienced to fully understand.
And isn’t that what masturbation is all about?
4 Ways How Masturbation Can Improve Your Life
You may have read the title of this section and thought that we were going to tell you that masturbation can improve your life in some grandiose way.
We’re not going to tell you that if you stick to your masturbation routine that you’ll win the lottery or get that hot girl/guy who has a crush on you (though it can’t hurt your chances).
Instead, we’re going to tell you how masturbation can improve your life in little ways. Ways that will ultimately make your life more fulfilling and enjoyable. Here are some of those ways.
1) It’s an Excellent Distraction
One of the most popular reasons that people give for masturbating is that it’s a great distraction. People will often use it when they need to take their mind off of a test, work, or even breakups.
If you’re in school and you have a big test coming up, there’s nothing wrong with using masturbation as a means of relieving some of the stress that you may have. Just make sure that you’re really getting the most out of your session. Imagine yourself successful in whatever endeavor you’re trying to succeed at (yes, even masturbation).
If you’re breaking up with someone and you’re having a hard time getting over the relationship, masturbation is a great way to take your mind off things. Again, just make sure you’re using the act in a positive way by trying to visualize yourself happy and at peace after the break up (because you are).
Masturbation can also be a good way to deal with stress in general. If you find that you’re under a lot of stress from work, school or another source, you should try to relieve yourself of some of that stress through masturbation. It’s not going to fix the problem, but it will give you a momentary relief from the issue at hand.
The next time you’re feeling stressed out, why not try relieving some of that stress by handling your own business?
2) It’s Something You Can Depend On
One of the best things about masturbation is that you can always depend on it when you’re feeling a particular way. Whether you’re feeling happy, sad, lonely, bored, relaxed or whatever else, you know that you can always have an outlet to help you express yourself.
Masturbating is something that will always be there for you no matter what happens in your life. For some people, it’s difficult to find someone that will be there for them during all of life’s trials. As they say, “it takes two people to make a thing go right, but just one to break it up.”
But you don’t have to worry about that with masturbation. No matter what happens in your life, you can be sure that taking care of yourself is top priority.
Masturbating is also something that you can always look forward to. Whether you’re experiencing drag during the week or if you have something to look forward to, masturbation (and sexual pleasure in general) is almost like a reward for making it through another week or getting through another area of your life.
3) It’s Something You Can Teach Others How To Do
Have you ever noticed how there are certain skills that people are just born with?
The ability to play sports, the ability to act, the ability to do just about anything.
It’s fun to watch people who are gifted with certain abilities, but it’s even more fun to watch people who aren’t mess around and ultimately become skilled at a certain activity.
Masturbation is one of those things that most people won’t ever be able to master. Even though it’s a fairly simple activity, most people will never be able to do it right mainly because they don’t take the time to practice.
Now, I’m not saying that you’re going to become the master of masturbating or anything. That title is probably going to remain vacant forever. But, you can still become very good at it if you learn the right way to do it and practice as often as possible.
If you ever find yourself in a relationship and your partner decides to master the art of masturbation, you can always teach them how you did it. Sure, it might seem like nothing, but teaching someone a fairly important life lesson is quite rewarding.
4) You Can Do It Anywhere
For anyone who has ever tried masturbating in public, you know that it can be done and it can be done without getting caught (as long as you keep your voices down).
Now, I’m not encouraging anyone to masturbate in public because that would be gross and illegal in most cases. However, the fact that it can be done should say something about the ability to do it discreetly in other places.
Many people feel ashamed or embarrassed to do it anywhere but in private because they think someone might judge them. But, if those same people took the time to do it in private, they’d realize that there’s really nothing to feel ashamed about.
You can masturbate pretty much anywhere. All you need is a loose piece of clothing (preferably underwear or pants) and you can go to town. You don’t even have to actively remove the clothing item, just pull it down and use it. Then, when you’re done, you can easily put it back without anyone being the wiser.
This also allows you to go for longer periods of time without having to worry about removing all your clothes.
