    Hi there,
    I have been looking into this as a main aspect of my experiment of rewiring my brain, and I found an article written by a doctor about the harmful effects of semen retention. I have no way of really knowing whether his sources are accurate because I don't know how to decipher the language in medical journals, but I thought this might be worth a look for you guys.

    I am hoping that if I decide to clean out my pipes, I will be able to do so without the need for porn. I am also hoping I can do it once a week without forming a habit of excessive masturbation. If you read my journal, you'll see I had a dream about my semen hardening.

    Semen retention is not harmful. In fact, it is best if the body retains it, as the body produces semen by distilling the best parts of what you eat and drink into it, and uses that fluid to energize all the cells in your body, especially those in your nervous system.

    If you feed an urge, it gains in strength, no matter what your intentions and circumstances are.

    Dreams are just a projection of the same subconscious that wants to justify your masturbation.

    I retained my semen once for 9 months, and i felt amazing, much much better than when i ejaculated, and even my erections became better (i edged during that time). now i have been edging for 2 months and i don't plan to let my semen out again, i don't know why people say that is harmful to retain the semen, i'm talking based solely on my experience and some knowledge.

    If you are talking about not ejaculating because you are not fapping, then yeah, you're right. But, if you are talking about edging, then it can be harmful. If the semen makes it part way to seeing daylight, it can make some kind of blockage which AFAIK can lead to retrograde ejaculation; i.e. sensing that the battle is lost, the army of sperm retreats into the bladder. I have a feeling this has happened to me before, and edging has caused all sorts of weird effects for me.

    What the article seems to completely ignore is that the body breaks down and reabsorbs the semen constantly ( ). Which means the accumulation they talk about doesn't necessarily happen, unless you stimulate production more than the body can absorb.

    See . I wasn't able to find much science on this. Chang is a doctor. He might not be up to date on the science and certainly his book is not.
