No Fap

Postby Tree » Tue Jun 19, 2012 3:26 pm

This is an unusual post, but I think it's important.

Recently I found a community of people that voluntarily avoid masturbation and porn. But not for moral reason. For health and sex performance reasons.

It's on Reddit, called No Fap. http://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap/

Women can also participate, but it's seems it is more effective to men, as a lot of men find masturbating too much leads to erectile dysfunction.

Now what attracted me to this was the medical benefits, etc. It's an interested approach that I feel is more successful than moralising.

Thoughts?

Also from a Tibetan medicine pov (hopefully Malcolm can add to this) masturbation disturbs your rlung.
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
