For several months, he allowed himself no more than a single ejaculation every eight days.

Silly writer must have gotten his numbers reversed.

In a previous relationship, Asprey tracked everything his girlfriend ingested, then correlated it with her moods.

I wonder why that relationship ended.

What about that brief dip immediately after the orgasm due to uncontrollable crying and shame. Did he factor that in as well?

I don't think I have gone more than 3 days without beating off since I figured it out. At 8 days, I would probably burst in my pants rubbing up next to a girl on the subway.

Laurie Hick, an artist who tracks her and her husband's weight and sleep habits, is able to monitor her husband's habits even at a distance thanks to a web-connected scale that uploads its measurements to an app both spouses can access. When Hick's husband spends a few weeks without her at their Austin home, she can check her app to see whether he's been sticking to a healthy diet -- or binging on burritos and barbeque.

Ugh. So much wrong with this from a methodology perspective. The problem with studying behaviour in this manner is that people's behaviour changes when they know it is being studied. This applies when you are monitoring yourself. The problem with personally using intrusive devices and methods to gather data about your behavioural baselines is that the presence of these intrusive devices and methods means you aren't at your behavioural baseline in the first place.

Psychologists and sociologists setting up behavioural experiments have to go to an enormous amount of trouble to create naturalistic settings that put the participants at ease so that they can get anything resembling reliable results from their experiments, and with more complex questions in sociology and anthropology experimentation is all but impossible; that's why techniques like participant observation were developed instead.

These are known issues that have demonstrably interfered with behavioural research in the past. It's not a trivial problem at all. I have deep, deep doubts about the reliability or generalisability of any data people like the subject of TFA gather, even with respect to their own personal lives.

So much this. For example,  If you take a date to a concert and affix skin conductance sensors to her, the subsequent dissatisfaction that those sensors register may have less to do with the quality of the music than with your asshattery. I'm just saying.

Someone mentioned boot camp, same thing with back country camping. I did 12 days, no problems. No women, no privacy, no porn. I was honestly worried about this particular aspect of the trip, turns out it was easy.

I'm definitely going to agree with what most Farkers are saying here.

If my hubby was bio-monitoring me 24-7 that would be creepy as shiat.
If he asked me if I was stressed cuz I was getting fat a probably would hit him with a baseball bat (or at least a rolling pin or frying pan if I was in the kitchen making sammiches).
If he hadn't figured out after even a few years together that I could be...emotional...approx every 28 days I would likely have to divorce him for being an idiot.
If he didn't have more than a single ejaculation every 8 days I would likely have to divorce him for being horrifyingly boring.

I sketched out a plot of frequency across the week for me. As you can see it peaks on the weekends, but rapidly dips (I marked the minima with red dots) around Tuesday as I'm getting snowed under with work. But then to drain off some of the stress it peaks again midweek, and then falls again around Thursday as I start trying to finish up work before the weekend starts...and...uh, hang on...I gotta go do something...

blondski: If my partner walked around and monitored all that I ate and then told me the food was making me grumpy instead of his ass like behavior I would beat him with a bat.


You'd probably beat me too, but for the guys out there... here's a piece of advice on what to do when your girlfriend gets grumpy.

1. Make sure she's eaten. "Hey, are you hungry? I'm hungry. When's the last time you ate?"
2. Make sure she's had enough sleep. "Hey, I'm kinda tired. Did you get enough sleep last night? Let's take a nap."

These two things alone solve 99% of the grumpiest behavior.

I had a couple of friends who were skeptical, but tried it on their girlfriends and were thanking me a few days later. -It's amazing how many arguments fixing those two things will solve.
