The fact that masturbation is a "sin" makes it extra appealing.

What do you mean I'm not supposed to do that.  Could you please tell me in explicit detail what I'm not supposed to do?

I just have a dry spot on my penis, and I have to rub some lotion onto it.

Vigorously.

After nine weeks of lockdown, one simply runs out of things to do to one's own genitals.

Serious question. Did the word "fap" originate on Fark? I know that was the first place I saw it.

I think it gained popularity to critical mass, on the SomethingAwful boards in the very early 2000s. Wiki says the term originated from a web comic in 1999.

It was an adult web-comic in the 90s called "Sexy Losers." The comic is still online, and I think is sporadically updated.  I won't link it for fear of mods, but you can Google it.  One of the recurring characters was "Left Handed Mike," whose schtick was that he was always jerking off, much to the chagrin of his roommate.  "Fap" was the sound word in the comic for that effect.  It's contrasted with "schlick" for women.

MADD is a neo-prohibitionist corporation now run by men -- greedy Baptists and Evangelicals. No mothers on the board. They get tax dollars plus fees from people convicted and even just accused of drunk driving.

https://www.cato.org/publications/com​m​entary/when-drunk-driving-deterrence-b​ecomes-neoprohibition

Wait until this NoFap movement starts trying to get bills passed. There is always a payday to be had by fleecing rubes. Caught pissing in an alley? You get to pay fees to Mothers Against Masturbating of America (MAMA) and you get to pay monthly fees for the rest of your life to stay registered on the Pervert List. Not registered? Back to prison with you.

I was in a fundie cult in college. Most of the kids there had grown up in fairly whitebread Christian communities, so they didn't have much "sin" that they really had to deal with, but the temptation to masturbate filled that niche nicely, making sure that you were always full of shame for the bad things you had done.

There is nothing quite as awkward as being in the college "men's group," going around the room discussing your "spiritual walk" in the last week, and having all the guys drop their eyes in shame and admit that yeah, they masturbated this week, as the 29-year-old married group leader nods grimly.

I often say that rules in Christianity are like laws in totalitarian countries: less there to provide standards of behavior and more to make sure you're always guilty of something. And masturbation is very handy for that sort of thing: Whenever someone disagrees with something the sect does and leaves, one of the first things the sect will do is go through your life and try to determine the "real" reason they left, because there are no valid factual or doctrinal problems with "true" Christianity. And if they discover that you were never able to stop masturbating or even (gasp) don't think it's that big a deal, they have their answer: You just wanted to sin, so you stopped listening to Jesus, and therefore none of your complaints about the religion are legitimate.

The one I don't understand are the decidedly not-Christian men who make no masturbation a pillar of their philosophy.  Proud Boys have no masturbation as one of their tenets.  It's big among the MRA movement.  I personally knew a dude way back in the day who believed that masturbation damaged his chi, and interfered with his Bagua training.

But I really don't understand the underlying non-religious philosophy of this.  They can't all be doing it out of a concern that it will keep them from becoming a martial arts master, right?

Lowering the BAC level to .08 from the original AMA recommendation of .15 for drunk driving was done on the premise of protecting others with MADD support. If people don't have to wear masks to protect others why can't other drive with a few drinks in them in the same areas?

You're going to make me look now.  Last time I went off on an expedition like this, I ended up with a leather bound copy of R. Crumb's "Bible of Filth".

Its already started, states like Utah have made porn a "public health crisis".

Oddly enough, their air pollution which makes LA look good in comparison isn't worthy of being a "public health crisis".

I will bet anything if you turn over enough rocks, you will find some Russians at the bottom of the no-fap movement. They're just the sort of folks who love to encourage a bunch of already angry, sexually frustrated Western dweebs to be even more frustrated and angry.

Look, porn has been around since before the printed word. It was probably the second invention, ever. Forgive me if I choose to deal with more pressing issues that actually have solutions, before dealing with porn.

It's almost like Christians purposely pick causes that have impractical or impossible solutions--like there's money to be made in NOT fixing imaginary problems. But I'm sure that's not it.
