The benefits of NoFap are well-attested anecdotally. Most NoFappers report having greater energy and drive to be more successful in every area of life. That has certainly been my experience with retention. Today, I’ve transcribed a short clip in which vlogger Max from “The Formed Man” gives his two cents on the topic. Max talks about the unique challenges young people face growing up in the internet age, and cites famous examples of people who transferred their sexual energy into other creative pursuits (sexual transmutation). The list includes Steve Jobs, Leonardo Da Vinci, Muhammad Ali, and Nikola Tesla. Napoleon Hill, best-selling self-help author of the 20th century, wrote a book entitled Think and Grow Rich. In it, he devoted a chapter to “The Mystery of Sex: Transmutation.” Check out this fascinating excerpt.
Sex desire is the most powerful of human desires. When driven by this desire, men develop keenness of imagination, courage, will-power, persistence, and creative ability unknown to them at other times. So strong and impelling is the desire for sexual contact that men freely run the risk of life and reputation to indulge it. When harnessed, and redirected along other lines, this motivating force maintains all of its attributes of keenness of imagination, courage, etc., which may be used as powerful creative forces in literature, art, or in any other profession or calling, including, of course, the accumulation of riches.Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich
I’ve watched a lot of Max’s videos over the last few months and I can say he puts out a lot of solid content on a regular basis.

What’s up, YouTube? This is Max here. I just want to talk about my experience with NoFap. This sh*t will change your life. This is going to change your life, OK. Here’s the deal. NoFap is basically a starter kit for any man 12 and up. Any male 12 and up. Here’s the deal. In our society, at this point because of access to internet porn or access to computers or access to technology, it’s so easy–pretty much every kid, unless he’s like super, super sheltered by his parents, is going to start watching porn by like 7th grade, 8th grade, freshman year in high school, maybe earlier. And it’s super, super messed up. It’s completely foreign to our brains. It’s completely foreign to the way we relate to women. It’s going to really mess your life up.
So, enough about that. My personal experience is basically, like most people, I started masturbating when I was 14. Started masturbating and watching porn. And I started doing NoFap, and the deal is with NoFap you have way more energy. You have way more magnetic energy to other dudes, to women, to anyone you talk to. You just connect with people. Semen is basically a man’s essence. It’s really the strongest part of a man’s essence, and if you’re blowing your semen, you’re getting rid of your essence. Porn is particularly vile and terrible because you’re filling up your brain with stuff that is not real and it totally f*cks up–sorry for my language–it totally messes up your social skills. If you watch porn and masturbate, you will have significantly higher social anxiety. If you watch porn and masturbate on a regular basis, you will walk into a social setting and be like “I feel uncomfortable. This is weird.”
After you watch porn and masturbate, you feel shameful, you feel weird, you feel vile, because it’s not natural When you stop watching porn and masturbating, your body gets a clue. It’s like, “Hey, this guy is never going to see a woman. This guy is never going to interact with a woman or have any kind of relationship if I don’t get my shit together.” So then what happens, your body gets a clue. All of a sudden, your skin starts looking nicer. Your eyes are more clear. You have this magnetic energy within you. and you’ll just take life more seriously. You’ll take life more seriously. You’ll be more driven, more purposeful, more focused on having an awesome life. It is a must do for every man. It is a basic requirement to have a healthy life.
There’s endless, endless, endless examples of semen preservation and NoFap benefiting you. Steve Jobs, when he would have sex with his girlfriend, he wouldn’t ejaculate to preserve that energy for creative purposes. Leonardo da Vinci was totally celibate. He preserved that energy and transmuted it to make his life amazing. I believe Alexander Graham Bell–that guy invented a bunch of stuff and the light bulb. Celibate.
Your sexual energy and your sexual control turns into a driving force when you master it. It’s going to bring you more success, more and better relationships. You will take better care of yours. You’ll be more interested in spiritual aspects of life–get back into your faith. It’s a must-do for any man, no matter your age.
