A man gains 'superpowers' after abstaining from sex for 700 days
A man has gained "superpowers" after he abstained from sex for 700 days.
A man decided to put a ban on his sex life, and went without masturbating for almost two years, and since his lifestyle change he has become a new man and tendencies he didn't have before, although he doesn't like referring to his new ways as powers.
According to Reddit, the man said: "My mind did feel a lot clear and I was at peace more often.
"Yes I was able to feel all those things you call 'superpowers' too - sudden increase in confidence, laser sharp focus, more attention from women, easier to find sex, energy boosts, etc.
"I don't like to refer to them as 'superpowers' - how do we know these superpowers aren't just normal human tendencies?"
And the man has revealed he decided to make the drastic change because he felt his self-esteem was hit hard when he would be rejected by women.
He explained: "We are all born with an empty void inside of ourselves. All our life we try to fill this void with something or the other.
"It can be anything - religion, spirituality, women, academics, work, porn, tinder, sex, mobile phone, TV, movies, and so on.
"I go on Tinder so frequently to see if I can find my one true soul mate (or maybe just get laid soon).
"Having meaningless sex with a new girl every time. How's any of this different from masturbating?
"And if none of these things go according to how I want them to, my self-esteem and general level of happiness takes a serious blow."
