I know--it sounds melodramatic, doesn't it? I thought so, too until I ran across a Reddit group called "NoFap". This in turn led me to a TED talk that got me thinking.
According to studies outlined in this TED talk, masturbation rewires the brain in much the same way as opiate or cocaine abuse. It sets in motion a chain of events that leads to real organic change in the brain's neuronal pathways. The results can lead to disaster.
The new movement of LoFappers has reported some interesting results.Some say that their decision to become a "NoFapper" has fueled in them nothing less than a personal Renaissance.
What do you think?
