Introduction to NoFap​

What is NoFap?

NoFap is a movement focused on abstaining from pornography and masturbation. Originating from an online community, it has grown into a broader lifestyle choice centered around self-discipline, improved mental health, and personal growth. Participants, often referred to as 'Fapstronauts,' commit to refraining from self-pleasure activities, particularly viewing pornography, as a means to reset their mind and body.

Origins of the NoFap Movement

The NoFap movement began in 2011 on a web forum, sparked by a discussion about a 2003 study which suggested that men who abstained from ejaculation for seven days experienced a spike in testosterone levels. This discussion led to the creation of a supportive online community that encourages individuals to abstain from pornography and masturbation. The term 'NoFap' (‘Fap’ being a colloquial term for masturbation) quickly became synonymous with this growing movement.
