Man Gives Up Masturbation For 700 Days, Says It Gave Him 'Superpowers'

Masturbation is a part of life. Everybody does it. There's no shame, lads. We're all friends here.

However, there's a whole online community where men are refraining from test-firing the old meat missile.

One guy claims he gave up wanking for 700 days and reckons his abstinence gave him 'superpowers'. I shit you not.

Reddit user Brohit revealed he quit masturbating two-and-a-half-years ago, and felt his mind "was at peace more often" as a result of it.

He said he felt a sudden increase in confidence, and also felt like he had more energy. However, he added: "How do we know these superpowers aren't just normal human tendencies?" He has a point.


He also suggested 'constant glorification of sex' has 'fogged our general perspective'. He's not wrong, if you ask me.

"Now we can only think about sex and what it would be like to sleep with women that have 'perfect' bodies," he said.

He also fired shots at people who don't believe porn addiction is a real thing.

"At least now I can take comfort in the fact that if I can control my urge to jerk off then I have developed a strong enough will power to beat an addiction that people blindly don't even consider an addiction," he said.

He added: "I still face the same urges I did 700 days ago, but I like to think that I'm much stronger now."


"Happiness and satisfaction comes from within. Just let that void be. Don't try to fill it with anything. That void within ourselves is what makes us human.

"Have faith you guys. Faith in yourself. Stay strong!

You can do it!
