First, I was just wondering how many single guys out there have successfully become non-orgasmic, and what's it like? The urge gets less, which I'm starting to experience on day 17 today. Does it come back? What can I expect ahead as far as pitfalls and bumps in the road?
Seems like it might be tough without a partner. 'Course maybe we don't stay single for long, which is what I'm hoping, but if that doesn't happen for some reason, what can you do to avoid temptation? My thinking is that engaging in oxytocin-type behaviors might help, like playing with pets, socializing, enjoying nature, etc. Also, maybe the sexual energy can be redirected into creative pursuits?
I've been looking into stuff like the Shaktichalana Mudra, but the prevailing wisdom in Tantric and Taoist sexual alchemy is that messing with your sexual energy is dangerous unless you have a teacher. Can anyone verify or debunk this?
Also, it seems like avoiding other dopamine-type activities helps. If I play video games for too long, for example, it seems like a boredom sets in which makes me want to fall back into other escapes like masturbation.
