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

This is Rory’s story.

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”.

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.

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.”

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.
