SEMEN RETENTION: Beneficial or BULLSH*T?

October 1, 2021
Just when I thought it couldn’t get any weirder, I started seeing comments on my video talking about retention and the amazing benefits. At first, I wondered if this is the same as NoFap, because NoFap does have some benefits. But retention goes a bit further than just not touching yourself. Retention can also be actual action and then teaching yourself not to finish. So, today I want to talk about retention, the whys / whats / hows, and the reported benefits & downsides.

In basic terms, retention is not ejaculating. You can have action, touching, and even penetration, but ultimately you prevent yourself from completing through pressing upon the taint to redirect everything to the bladder. This got me thinking that this isn’t healthy. I researched but didn’t find much data or research on retention. Another form of retention is edging (squeezing behind the head right before you’re about to finish to compress the urethra). Once again, I don’t feel this is healthy. The last retention option is not to touch it (aka NoFap). So, why would somebody want to practice retention? Some of the benefits are actually difficult to prove, but here are what people are reporting.

Unproven notions about retention

I’m not trying to say that retention doesn’t work, and I’m not trying to tell you not to do it. But I just want to say that in a world of craziness, retention is up there because it’s natural and normal to have a healthy & happy sex life whether with someone or with yourself.

  • Increased motivation
  • Increased energy and mental focus (prolactin)
  • Self-confidence
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Better memory and concentration
  • Reducing risk of premature ejaculation
  • Increased fertility — studies have shown abstaining for a day will improve the quality (but not more than 10 days sustaining)
  • Clearer skin
  • Increased testosterone
  • More muscle mass and more fat loss
  • Deeper voice
  • Greater sense of purpose
  • Stronger and deeper emotional bonds

Scientific benefits of NOT retaining

  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Boosts immune system
  • Better sleep
  • More relaxed and less stressed
  • Increases connection with people due to the release of oxytocin
  • Reduces risk of heart disease

Dangers of retention

  • Blue balls (aka epidemical hytertension)
  • Ejaculating 21 times a month reduces the risk of prostate cancer by 50%
