This Guy Gave Up Sex And Masturbating For 100 Days And People Were Weirdly Impressed

This is Rory’s story.

1. At the start of April, Rory Patrick told his 13,000 Twitter followers he had decided to give up sex and masturbating for the next 100 days.

2. He was apparently pretty excited about his challenge and wanted the world to know about it.

3. He was convinced he was about to start a whole new viral trend.

4. In actual fact there is an online community dedicated to abstaining from masturbation and pornography.

5. For example, the NoFap subreddit has over 100,000 members, or “Fapstronauts”.

6. Patrick claims he knew nothing of these groups and came up with the challenge alone.

Just got a snapchat from a babe in lipstick eating peanuts with the caption #rory100 and now I need a cold shower.

7. During the 100 days he continually tweeted about his efforts and thanked those who were supporting him.

Would like to thank @ChrisThayerSays & @pants for running the 1st week of #rory100 w/me. Your support in not cumming helped me immensely.

11. Early on it appeared he was struggling somewhat with his challenge.

Been finding myself casually watching porn "just to see." Having to do lots of chores and push-ups. Pretty worried. #rory100 #happyeaster

12. Things started getting pretty weird.

Naked and eating Subway on my bed after a long day of running and playing hoops at the park (also alone).

Roommate walked by while I was trying to take pictures of my own butt and just said, "night."

— rorynotroy (@rory)

Lounging nude in my bed at 2:45am, I spanked my own right buttock very hard and the echo that spread throughout the apartment was deafening.

15. And there were a lot of reminders of what he was missing out on.

Happy for my roommate that she’s having sex but it’s so loud that I can’t focus on my book about the history of soccer formations.

Hmmm- There’s an Internet Explorer window opened. Looks like #rory100 was in danger last night before I passed out.

19. But to keep strong, Patrick kept reminding himself of just how great he apparently is.

*licks finger and lifts it into the wind* hmmm yes im very handsome

22. In an interview with Vice, Patrick said he decided to take on the abstinence challenge after noticing how “jerking off had altered the trajectory of my day-to-day life”.


“Coming was also my primary coping strategy for stress or pain, and that just didn’t seem healthy at all,” he said.

He said the first four days had been “hell”, but after that he began to feel healthier and more eloquent and the support he received online helped him through.

23. He said he and a friend started taking pictures doing the Hunger Games salute and it caught on, with people adding the #rory100 hashtag.

75 days • 75% • 3/4th ✨ finding the light in the darkness as this journey comes a close ✨ #rory100

24. “It let me know people were thinking about me and kept me honest, because it seemed like people were having fun with it,” he said.

30. Patrick revealed some people had tried to tempt him with nude pictures, but the majority of his followers and friends made sure he stayed on track.

So, @madamezooble is giving #rory100 support and trying to melt the internet.

34. When the 100th day came, Patrick said his roommate kindly left him alone “so I could be as loud as I needed to be”.

35. Oversharing massively, he revealed his preparation to his followers.

Shaved, trimmed, clipped and showered. I'm almost ready for myself. #rory100

— rorynotroy (@rory)

36. “I tweeted out some thanks, and when the time came, I was naked and really enjoying myself once again,” he said. “It only took a few minutes, and the finish was spectacular.


“The orgasm reverberated throughout the room for at least 20 minutes.”

37. “I tweeted out a pic of me smiling and then logged off for a while.”

#rory100 finally

Woke up so happy for Rory #rory100

— solikebasically (@Helena Bottom-Farter)

39. On what he had learned from his challenge, Patrick said: “If stress or anxiety hits, I don’t just jump under the covers or text someone to hang out. I’d like to greet those moments with something a bit healthier.


“My apartment has never been cleaner, and my body has been getting a bunch of use outside of my cock for the last 100 days, and my hope is that continues.”

40. And that’s Rory’s story.


So now you know.
