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.

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.

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
