    Hi everyone,

    I just want to know if anyone has experience with NOBNOM and what their experiences are. For those who are unfamiliar. I will link this.

    The 30-Day Challenge: No Booze, No Masturbating (NOBNOM) | The Blog of Author Tim Ferriss

    I am 21 days in. I can say it's been a struggle on the weekends. The no alcohol consumption part is easy, the latter, not so much. My urge starts to kick in right after a hard workout.
    My productivity has increased across my parts of my life. However, my time away from pornography is spent talking to women online. I thought I would start talking to random women off the street, but that has not happened.

    I'd like to hear what you guys and gals think about this experiment and if this is something healthy. I always thought sex was a primal instinct.

      This looks very targeted to men in relationships. He says sex is okay, but masturbating isn't. Except for the single person of discerning tastes or perhaps someone just too weird to get laid on a regular basis, masturbating might be their only form of sex.

      Porn is a whole other aspect of sex. If online porn is eating into the productive quality of your day, probably like any other negative distraction, it should be reigned in. But straight up masturbation takes what? Five minutes? That's not going to keep anyone from fulfilling their daily responsibilities or goals.

      I have experience not drinking anywhere from a couple of weeks to a month. But like dairy, no one can convince me that orgasms aren't healthy.

          I splash whiskey on my hand to get it drunk first.

            Joanie,

            I know from my friends and myself that it is not just a five minute thing.
            A lot of time can be spent finding material for the activity at hand. No pun intended.

              MisterFrancis, there are benefits to cultivating one's imagination so that "material" is not required.

                    Meepster,

                    Sorry I am part of a generation where adult material is readily available.
                    It's very hard for me to use my imagination, even when I an sleeping.
                    I guess that's why I find this challenge intriguing.

                      LOL! You're a braver woman than I to post that.

                      Doc, you crack me up.

                      Mr. Anthony, it's totally okay about the whiskey as long as you respect your hand in the morning.

                        Bane, I have to say that you are stronger than me. I thought about abstaining from caffeine as well. Unfortunately my job involves night shifts and I don't see how I could be up without it.
                        I also have another problem when it comes to dating. When women ask me why I am not drinking, I'm very afraid the latter part of this challenge. They might feel as if I am buttering them up.

                          I never drink. Guys who aren't okay with it are rare and far in between. Girls are also usually pretty cool with it. Just say "I don't feel like it tonight" (for the Drinking). The only time I truly ever felt pressured over drinking was this summer at my summer internship events ( booze fest... One event was a beer pong tournament and another was scotch tasting party). I went to one of the most party hardy schools for college (UT), went to a ton of frat parties, engineering events (where the engineering companies provide kegs after kegs), college parties. I never felt like it was a big deal to drink water out of those red cups instead of booze. I have dated some of the most party-hardy guys as well and most of them liked that I don't drink... The rest didn't care either way. First Dates are the same... Most dudes just make a joke about how I am cheap date or and move on.

                          If the ladies think you are just making them drunk, just explain that you are in a thirty day challenge to not drink (don't bring up the masturbation part). If they overanalyze that statement, they might be super crazy anyway.

                            Sounds like you're dealing with a porn addiction rather than a masturbation problem.

                              Lmao. It's just porn man... The word addiction is thrown around so easily these days. I don't really watch it because it just confused/annoyed me (why is the girl so stupid in this video? The script is so cheesy!!! Lol wtf who DOES that??) but I think it's about as harmful as Netflix.
