The NOBNOM challenge...think you could do it?

The 30-Day Challenge: No Booze, No Masturbating (NOBNOM)

The short version: I’d like to pay you to not drink or jerk off for 30 days. Sign up here and get your monk on.

Sex is A-OK.

The longer version is below, which includes juicy details, more options for women, and some farewell-porn suggestions…

###

You know who you are, you filthy animals.

Secret bookmarks to Pornhub (“Discount airfare” – Ha!), secret folders labeled “Tax Returns” for when wifi fails, bookmarks for animated GIFs in case of slow connections (curtsy to Tumblr), Hotspot Shield for when you’re in countries that ban your cherished images (download it before you fly!)…

Oh, wait. Am I projecting again?

Yes, I’ve admitted it before, and I’ll admit it again: dudes watch porn on the Internet. Shocker, I know. All those guys on the magazine covers? They do it, too.

Less obvious, perhaps, is how dramatically your life can change if you quit porn and masturbation for a short period.

I did this for 30 days recently, and — oddly enough — I found it much easier and more impactful to quit booze for the same 30 days. Just a few of the benefits I experienced included…

  • A dramatic surge in free testosterone and sex drive. Dozens of my seemingly healthy male friends, techies in particular, have approached me over the years about chronically low testosterone. There are many potential causes, including late-night blue light, but removing booze and porn appear to open the flood gates. Research (example, example) shows that alcohol reduces testosterone levels. So…should you be dating more? Trying a little harder instead of wanking, watching Battlestar Galactica, and calling it a night? This will help motivate you.
  • Increased ability to focus and cognitive endurance. This goes along with increased “T” mentioned above.
  • Getting roughly 50-100% more done. When you aren’t nursing hangovers, chewing up 3-4 hours per night with friends, destroying your sleep with booze, or procrastinating with porn (you know who you are) — miracle of miracles — you get more done! A LOT more done. In my mind, this alone easily justifies a 30-day booze and porn fast. You’ll clear off that goddamn to-do list faster than Speedy Gonzalez.And remember: sex is still allowed.

Join Me for Another 30 Days

The "pros" he mentioned, about the increased sex drive - now how would that help someone who's getting nowhere with the ladies? confused

I'd think one would get REALLY cranky with the combination of no booze and no masturbation for a month - the no booze part is much easier IMO.

The real challenge would be a year. A month is simple, especially if you're not a big drinker and don't have much of a sex drive. lol

Sex is a lot better than drugs

but, of course, quality over quantity...

I think that the trick here is committing to abstain from BOTH simultaneously, for 30 days straight.

You'd be surprised even if you don't think that you have a "problem" with either alcohol or masturbation you can find yourself giving in to the temptation rather easily.

Allegedly of course. lurking
