Guys, what do you think about this article?

I recently came across a well written article by Matt Savage; http://themodernsavage.com/2009/02/04/effects-of-male-masturbation-on-attracting-women/

Savage claims that masturbating every day can be harmful in terms of overall productivity and sexual attraction. Basically if you abstain, you will peak in testosterone levels around days 5-7. During this time you will become energetic, productive, have more confidence, be more likely to approach women, be more attractive to women etc. Apparently women can subconsciously tell when males have a strong sexual energy. Might work really well for me since I'm generally way too friendly, indirect, and shy around women. Savage ultimately recommends a 7-14 day cycle.

The comments are amazing, one guy even claims that abstaining has helped with his dandruff. Dandruff is a problem I've had for years that paleo can't even solve. I haven't gone more than a day without masturbating since 13. Not rubbing out before bed certainly makes it harder to fall asleep. I'm extremely skeptical but I'm going to give it a try.

I know some studies claim that ejaculating 2-4 times a week lowers the risk of prostate cancer, but as we know, scientific claims, especially in the health industry, cannot and should not be trusted.

...a lot of real sex is okay. The mind responds to it differently than masturbation.

What do you guys think? Fasting from food can give you super powers. Can 'fasting' from fake sex do the same?

I am sorry that you are stuck in your mom's basement masterbating because you haven't been laid in years.

Yet again, SUSTAINEDfitness fails to provide any meaningful commentary. Why do you spend all day posting on here spewing out useless information? Do you not work? I swear all you do is post here and make stupid videos of you rock climbing.

There's some serious hyperbole about it...but ultimately laying off the 'executuve relief' isn't going to have any bad effects. It's a good measure of self control if nothing else!

The other issue with too much masterbation has to do with affecting your sex life once you are in a sexual relationship with a female. As with porn, a little is generally considered ok, but overdoing it can begin to affect the brain's sexual reward centers, and healthy views of sex.

@Andrew If sex is not an option, try abstinence.

haha I wish, but I'm 22, just graduated college, and am back in my parents house. So real sex really isn't an option at this point in my life.

Totally agree. Sex is way better. Especially with a person you love.

Lengthy discussion here: http://paleohacks.com/questions/201587/masturbation-lots-of-sex-is-it-really-good-for-you/201612#201612

Also, a video I stumbled across later on. Dave Asprey's take on the subject: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AeZn6MvZZg

I prefer the real deal when it comes to sexual activity. But then again, having a hot longtime girlfriend helps.
