Some important things you should know about sperm retention
The notion of male sperm being sacred and highly charged, energy wise, is nothing new. As far back as 206BC, Chinese Taoist practitioners apportioned premature ageing, disease and fatigue to the life force lost through ejaculation, or ‘Jing’. As a result, Taoists practised sperm retention, which is something that still carries on today.
However, the idea of sperm retention, especially in any Westernised setting, was mainly the realm of modern-day Taoists and people into things like tantric sex (which has Buddhist/Hindu roots), and this is where NoFap comes in: scour the forums and check out their YouTube videos and you’ll read about/hear fapstronauts eulogising sperm retention no end. Some fapstronauts/NoFap practitioners even claim that holding onto their sperm causes them to give off a pheromone or highly mysterious energy even, that causes women to be inexplicably drawn to them without much effort on the dude’s part. However, one oft-cited contention with sperm retention and/or foregoing masturbation outright is that it can allegedly lead to rampant libido and unwanted erections, which, one imagines, could easily negate the aforementioned positive side-effects.
