Men are celebrating the end of another successful No Nut November

Men are celebrating the end of another successful No Nut November

It's finally December 1 and that means the month-long dry season of No Nut November has finally drawn to a close.

Yee haw. It's time to get back on the horse, as it were.

Men in Kiribati were the first nation in the world to be released from their blue-balled prison, with the lucky sods privy to the globe's earliest time zone.

Blokes in New Zealand soon followed suit, with adult film website PornHub marking the occasion in their own way.

The explosions were a nice touch, considering that's what is likely going on across Aotearoan bedrooms as we speak.

Australia followed New Zealand's lead, and, as this writer resides in Sydney, I can say with good authority that the vibe today is a whole less tense compared to yesterday.

Lads in the Southern Hemisphere took to social media platform Reddit to celebrate after spending the last month encouraging each other to not touch their own private parts.

Or let anyone else have a fondle, for that matter.

One Reddit user posted: "It is officially 12:00am, December 1st, in Sydney, Australia, Cumrades. It's been a good run. I’ll see you all next year."

In response, another user said: "You are now honourably discharged."

A third added: "Your tour of duty is over. All nuts are fair game Down Under."

No Nut November is supposed to teach the males of the world some sort of lesson in self control, as well as providing some boost to overall wellbeing and mental clarity.

So to those who made it, well done. To the ones who were lost in battle, better luck next time.

However, the idea behind the month-long abstinence period is pretty ropey, according to one medical expert.

Dr Rena Malik took to her YouTube channel to explain the benefits of not ejaculating could help boost your fertility when you finally do have sex, but, overall, there wasn't much of a reason to do it, especially not for 30 days.

She explained while there weren't really huge health penalties to participating in No Nut November, it didn't really help much either as you'll miss out on the benefits of masturbation.

She said: "There's a number of benefits to masturbation including better sleep, decreased heart rate, decreased stress and a lot of increase in feel good hormones."

"People can get a lot of pain and discomfort in their pelvic floor, or their testicles.

A lot of you guys have heard of 'blue balls'."

So, next year, you might just want to steer clear of No Nut November altogether.
