5 Tips for Starting and Surviving No Fap [100 Days Update]

I realized my previous No-Fap updates might have been too advanced, so I have reflected on these past 100 days to offer some useful advice for the No-Fap newbies out there, and a new perspective for current practitioners to reach new heights.

Tip #1: The Zenkai Boost

I’ve used this analogy before, but a lot of the improvements observed during No-Fap can be likened to the same process Saiyans undergo in Dragon Ball Z, in which their power level dramatically increases after they recover from near-fatal injuries.

I specifically identified the “Zenkai Boost” effect after noticing the gaps in frequency for my nocturnal emissions, as the longer I practiced No-Fap, the further away each one occurred from the last.

In the event that you do experience failure on your No-Fap journey, keep in mind that every failure is still valuable experience.

If you are constantly evaluating your progress along the way, you can identify what your triggers are so that you can better avoid them in the next round.

No-Fap is also not a completely mental exercise; you are also dragging along a very incessant body that needs realignment and repair.

#2: Count the Consecutive AND Cumulative Days on No-Fap

Acknowledging our streak counts is by far the most easily recognized habit within the No-Fap community. However, the way it is commonly approached can be harmful to the new practitioner.

Great comment by this guy on a very comedic NoFapper vs. Coomer video.

Those that reject No-Fap are always on day 0, so even though you may fail repeatedly to create a decent streak, you are at least making an effort, and every single moment of those efforts should be recognized.

Start counting your days from the day you decided you wanted to change, because there are so many out there that actively reject to change this habit.

It’s unfair to say that my “Day 0” after hitting 163 days (my high score) is the same “Day 0” as another man who has never made it past 3 days.

All of your experience matters. Count it all.

If you do it this way, even if you fail, you are still on the path and always growing.

#3: Slowly Deprogram (Don’t Go Cold Turkey)

It has never been enjoyable, nor strategically successful, to sternly stamp my foot down and refuse to repeat a certain behavior after previously over-indulging in it.

This especially happens with food, as I used to respond to relapses in my dieting habits with a full day of fasting (sometimes even dry fasting) either to punish myself or hard reset my neural pathways.

It’s absolutely miserable, as it doesn’t make me feel accomplished while doing it, and failing to abide by my own punishment just confirms that I have no control of myself.

Yes, as No-Fappers, we are addicted to porn, but I believe it’s wiser to slowly limit my consumption of it over a certain period of time, and eventually get bored of it (since there’s no orgasm release), as opposed to constantly fighting and struggling against my curiosity.

In fact, new No-Fappers should probably shoot for building up on smaller streaks in the beginning rather than trying to hit a 30 day or 90 day reboot on their first try.

It seems to be the healthiest way to achieve lasting results. With porn, I think it’s better to become desensitized, through boredom and sound logic, rather than overly sensitive, through strict avoidance and repression.

#4 The Body Needs Discipline (This Stops Wet Dreams)

Isaac from Castlevania, meditating before his self-flagellation exercise

“The Body is sick. It must be purged. It must be focused. This is Holy work.” – Isaac from Castlevania (Netflix)

There are two schools of practice in No-Fap, and the divergence starts around the argument of whether or not a nocturnal emission affects your streak. Believing that it does is a likely path towards practicing full-on semen retention, but either way, a wet dream is not a fun event to go through.

Once again, there are two theories behind why it occurs in the first place.

The first theory is that your body does not yet have the mechanics for retention, neither the muscles nor the neuronal pathways, as it is adjusted to frequent ejaculation, so your body will attempt to expel semen when it is most vulnerable.

I remember a particular night after working out, I decided to skip my cold shower and go for a hot one before bed. I went to bed with a very strong fear that I was going to release at night during a dream, and not more than four hours later, I was disturbed by wildly sexual dreams, confirming my suspicion.

However, over time, my control of these dreams increased. At first, the ejaculations were almost instant, with little or no penetration at all. But as time went on, I was able to force them back, and eventually, not ejaculate at all during dream sex.

Which brings me to the second theory: A weak pelvic floor.

Debonair D has claimed that he has never experienced a wet dream, and he proposes that his natural defense is derived from his early adoption of frequent and heavy exercise, especially lower body workouts which relieve him of tension and pressure in the pelvic area, whereas other men who don’t exercise build up and unfortunately release this tension at night.

I also like to consider Yin/Yang and thermodynamic entropy as well. Having wet dreams is a symptom of the body having too much external heat (Yang energy). This is why I believe I released after my hot shower.

Therefore, incorporating more Yin practices (like meditation and cold showers) will invert the body’s heat and retain it. Making yourself colder will force the body to absorb the heat around you, as entropy is always attempting to achieve temperature uniformity.

#5 Constantly Ask Questions

“A question opens the mind. A statement closes the mind” – Robert Kiyosaki

The last piece of advice is a call back to an earlier article of mine, Two Questions To End Old Habits And Re-Organize Your Life

Structuring your life around bold statements does not seem to be a sustainable practice, and is probably why most New Year’s Resolutions fail after the first two months, or even sooner.

Although I have committed myself to one year of No-Fap and Keto diet training, I have not stated “I will do this for one year”, I have simply asked myself “What will happen if I do this for one year?”

We don’t know the future and we aren’t very good at even predicting our own behavior, so it’s important to keep our mindsets open and constantly gauge ourselves during our search for self-knowledge and wisdom.

If the urge to watch porn again comes up, you don’t have to be so adamantly against it, just simply ask a few questions.

What is the end goal of watching porn? It will most likely result in masturbation.

How does watching porn develop my character? I think it just makes me a person that watches porn.

What will I learn about myself? This one hurts. I don’t know! Is what I watch what I’m actually attracted to, or am I being programmed or manipulated into certain categories? However, I don’t think I’ll find the answer by watching more porn.

By asking questions, you make a graceful arrival to the logical conclusion, as opposed to the constant resistance of a definitive statement. It’s also a more mindful practice that introduces objective introspection rather than the ego investment that occurs through making declarations and promises to uphold or abstain from certain behaviors.

Don’t ever be afraid to not have an answer for your questions either. There is nothing wrong with an unsolved or open-ended question, as I believe just having the ability to ask it is enough proof of progress and demonstration of logic, and accepting the empty space is more likely to allow you to live in the present moment than believing every action needs to be explained.

My Personal Milestone Goals (Being A New Content Creator Feels Like The Chunin Exams)

In the Naruto franchise, which I’m referencing for this article, there are three ranks of ninja classes.

The lowest rank is Genin, whom function as school students for the majority of their time. However, they are able to be promoted through the Chunin Exams.

Using this comparison, consumers and commentators of content are the Genin. They enjoy studying the content and will occasionally go on “missions”, which would be more elaborate commenting, or gain the supervision of a Jonin (high rank ninja), which would be akin to being a donor for exclusive content from well established creators.

The Chunins, on the other hand, are people like myself, who now feel they are ready to graduate from the academy and put their skills to the test.

It’s a great feeling, but also a daring one, as I can no longer comment from a distance if I disagree with a specific content creator. I actually have to provide the proof with my own work.

On the other hand, this has given me a lot of confidence, as any dislikes or dissenting comments I receive won’t be worth much to me if the person who made them does not also produce content themselves.

There is a great appreciation for those that support my content, but there can only be a mutual respect for detractors if they are putting in as much effort as I am.

I have and will continue to also challenge higher profile content producers, but very sparingly, as I am not interested in drama or farming their audience for clicks.

Another cool thing about the Chunin exams are that the Genin are not promoted by the majority rule of the village (so, I can’t say something cheesy like, “I’ll finally make it when I hit 10,000+ subscribers!”), but are instead promoted by other Ninja and the Feudal Lord observing the exam.

Although I’m not completely dependent on validation from other content creators, I do regularly compare my skills against theirs, and derive inspiration and new skills from studying their methods. Thus, I have came up with some important benchmarks for myself that I would consider a promotion through my content.

A Seat At The Table With…Happy Humble Hermit

HHH is one of my favorite MGTOW content creators, and it would be a personal reward for me to have a sit-down talk with the man.

One of his most popular videos on Miyamoto Musashi was actually the inspiration for my Way of The Sword: Part I story, as it was the first time I learned about the swordsman’s life.

He very often encourages other MGTOW to get involved and produce their own content, and I have followed a lot of his advice in his “How To” start up guide video.

He is studying in college to become a teacher, and I’ve even taken inspiration from him on that as well. I’m at a crossroads in my career, as I have an opportunity to score a decent job and settle with my Associate’s degree, or continue to further my education to a Bachelor’s, in which my ideal job afterward would also be as a teacher.

The summers and holiday breaks off is a huge incentive, and will provide me great opportunities to continue to work on my side jobs, (like this site!).

Lastly, another of my MGTOW idols, Itachi MGTOW, whom I also wrote about previously, looked up to Hermit as well, and has been featured on his channel a few times. A sit down with Hermit would let me know I am approaching the same level of prestige as my former mentor.

808-1,000 days of No-Fap

808 is the number no-fap guru Gold Jacket Luke ended his highest streak on, and after reaching that number I will commemorate any no-fapper’s success in reaching that number as Happy Gold Jacket Luke day!

Hopefully he doesn’t take it as a personal dig, but 808 is a dope number, anyway, honestly.

Karezza + 1 year Semen Retention

Semen Retention is the next logical level to ascend to after achieving some foundation in No Fap.

Watching content from Debonair D and Health Then Opulence is actually what inspired this article, as I had two very clear elder content creators in which the distance between my experience and theirs made it very difficult for me to detract or advise them, since they’ve accumulated so much experience in this field and I’m barely out of ground zero.

One angle I have over them, however, is Karezza, and I must credit Gold Jacket Luke for enlightening me to this knowledge. It appears to be less widely known than other practices on retention, especially since the term wasn’t coined until the 1800’s.

From watching their content, it seems that both men still demonstrate a very clear divide between them and their sexual partners. They do not see the bias in allowing the female to orgasm, while they focus on retaining.

Through Karezza, both partners do not orgasm and eliminate the divide and bond very deeply together. However, I have not practiced it myself, so even though I feel they could benefit greatly from it, I have no platform to preach from.

Keto Diet + Curing Candida

It’s been 55 straight days of my Keto, Anti-Candida diet (with plenty of those days being One-Meal-A-Day fasting).

Finally achieving the hormonal balance and purging, rebuilding, and fortifying of my gut would be a huge accomplishment and also provide me a wealth of data and experience to share and introduce others into the wider health community.

I hope I can achieve some results in six months, but I am aiming for a full year to perfect this diet so I would be confident enough to lightly guide others in a helpful direction.

Monk Mode

Lastly, if I could optimize my Monk Mode focus to get myself out of this apartment and into a single in New York City (with these high rents, this is not an easy task), I would actually have the privacy I need to become more prolific with recording and uploading videos.

The videos will almost always follow my written content anyway, but with a new mic and some private space, I could catch up on a lot of my articles and provide my viewers with more content.

I would even have the ability to host live streams! So that will be a whole new level of production for me, and most certainly signifies my promotion.


That’s all for now. Just a fun little article for myself. I hope you enjoyed it too.

What would you make you feel accomplished and warrant a promotion to the next content creator level? Let me know.

30 Days of No-Fap – Road to Self-Mastery

This isn’t my first time around the block. Before now, the longest streak I’ve ever had was 163 days.

But even though I’m less than a 1/5th of my highest streak, hitting this milestone seems different this time.

It’s as if the efforts of my previous streaks have compounded into a habitual memory and has allowed me to easily pick up where I left off, and maybe reach even higher levels of insight than before.

“A Saiyan gets stronger after every battle.” – Prince Vegeta

I suppose the greatest difference now is starting this streak after finally losing my virginity. Sex was still the goal for me during the previous streaks, with sexual transmutation a tool for reaching some personal confidence standards to finally pursue sex seriously.

No Fap and Sex Transmutation was just a means to an end.

But now that I’ve had sex, I’ve also been able to clearly see what kind of person I am before, during, and after engaging my sexual urges, whether it’s with a partner or with porn.

“Know Thyself”

I think there is very little to be learned about yourself in the pursuit of sex. After all it is just a sensual pleasure.

The desire for sex is just an intelligent expression of our genes, with its ultimate goal to reproduce, and it is only our ego that rationalizes these pursuits for us in a communicable way that has us speak to ourselves about it in our minds to make it appear as if it’s something we truly want. As if it was the rational direction we should take.

After 30 days of No-Fap, I do not see the rationality of pursuing and completing sex in the traditional ways we currently accomplish it. I’ve even had to question eating food, another sensual pleasure that can explode into addiction.

Food just passes through you, in the same way sex passes through you. It’s just a biological drive. However, the difference is that food is more of a necessity than sex. Without food you may die. But you can survive just fine without ever orgasming. In fact, some philosophies believe that a man should preserve his semen as it is his life force.

Claiming that sex is a “need” as we do in conventional society is just rationalization.

My argument is not to abandon sex forever, but to simply curb it, to fast from it, only to recognize it has no true dominion over you.

Many of us take the Red Pill but we stop after knowing the horrific truths about the media, politicians, and every day women are manipulating us. So we go our own way. But what is the purpose of outdoing those that want to control us if we cannot control ourselves?

These men vow to never spend a dime on marriage, child support, and a date with a domestic woman, and turn around only to risk their lives in red light districts spending thousands of dollars at home and abroad.

How is it rational to determine that there is no future to be made with the modern woman, yet you’ll still engage with her, even if it’s for a one night lay?

No matter if a woman is a sinner or a saint, when you lay with her you become her equal. So no matter what you feel about them, it’s also a reflection of yourself” – Anonymous

Think of the men who spend hours in the street and in clubs pursuing women, sometimes with less than a 5% success rate, rationalizing that “rejection builds character.”

No. You want to get laid, because your genes want to reproduce. All the time and resources your body uses to build semen just for it to end up in a latex bag. Or even worse, a tissue in your hand. Pathetic.

And you’ll go back and do it all over again, never questioning why the ride doesn’t stop.

Imagine the businesses and skills these men could acquire if only they knew they were slaves. You ended your slavery with the media, with corporate society, and with women, but you have not recognized the blind spot you hold for yourself.

What I want to achieve through No-Fap and MGTOW is Self-mastery.

Are you willing to take on the challenge to no longer being a slave to your own biology?
