    • Masturbating Your Way To Lean


      By Jennifer Cohen Men's Fitness

      How would you react if someone told you masturbating could help you reach your fitness goals? Well, one woman is saying it worked for heróand she actually has the academic chops to back it up.

      Meet Ramani Durvasula, PhD, a psychologist and author of the brand new book, You Are WHY You Eat. After getting out of a loveless and sexless marriage, Dr. Durvasula saw an opportunity to re-focus on herself and her health, so she developed a diet and fitness plan that used very specific non-food rewards (including masturbation and orgasm) to keep her on track. The result: An 80-lb. weight loss.
      We sat down with her to learn more about her somewhat unorthodox diet and the psychology behind it.

      Menís Fitness: So how did you discover this method?

      Dr. Ramani Durvasula: I took one thing I loved, food, and replaced it with another, orgasm. When I got tired of the endless salads and fruits and vegetables, I decided, why not stick in something that is pleasurable and healthy? That was a short listóreading, writing, orgasm. So when I had to replace a pleasurable food, I used masturbation.

      MF: What are the psychological principles behind creating a reward system for yourself?

      RD: Itís a very simple premise of human behavior that if a behavior is followed by a reward, we tend to repeat it. If the rat goes down the right part of the maze, it gets cheese, so it does it again. I put the cookie down, I masturbate, I have an orgasmóand I associate putting down a cookie with an orgasm. Basically, the reward has to be rewarding.

      MF: How does this work logistically? Can I reward myself during the workday?

      RD: Well, you canít just be a one trick pony and have orgasm as your only pleasurable go-to! At times I couldnít get the job done, I would try my other pleasures, or make a date with myself for later. Iím also a big fan of writing a ďpleasureĒ list that has more than one pleasure on it. Beyond orgasm, mine includes reading, hiking, watching my favorite TV shows or drinking a cup of tea in my backyard.

      MF: Lots of people donít reward themselves for small goals. How can that affect a weight-loss program?

      RD: If you donít reward yourself, your program is guaranteed to backfire. Think of willpower as a resource that can be depleted in lots of ways: by not eating enough, stress, lack of resources, illness. The more of these ďdepletorsĒ you experience, the less willpower you haveóand the more likely you are to eat badly, drink too much, use drugs, shop or do anything else that derives pleasure. Itís the reason that diets never work! For every person that loses 50 pounds on a 500 calorie a day regimen, I can show you 10 people who will gain all of that and another 25. Most of us eat too much and eat badly, but when we do deprive ourselves of some of that yummy junk, we need to offset it with something. I think a certain amount of pleasure has to fall into every day.

        I'm looking to shed a few pounds. I'm currently 5'9" 210 16%BF. Right now I currently masturbate 3x a day. To get to single digit bf, should I increase the frequency of my masturbation or just the intensity?

        I've found the best results with not masturbating at all. I'm serious. I have so much more energy on all my lifts and feel more confident and just better. I still do it maybe like 1 time every 2 weeks

        Start a thread in the training section and post up some videos for us to look at your form.

        Check that out Dirty Dan. Not only will masturbation help you get lean, but the ejaculate is actually healthy for you according to this article.
        I hope you notice that it does indeed contain the following: Proteins/Amino acids, ZMA, creatine and testosterone.

        The problem with this is it's simply a reward system and requires willpower. What makes the author think that people who can't deny themselves food will deny themselves sexual satisfaction? Like they're really going to be like, "well, I caved and ate that cheeseburger for lunch, guess I can't crank it tonight..."

        Dan, may I suggest that you stop accentuating your stroking with porn. Doing so may increase the intensity of your climax but also expedites ejaculation thereby reducing overall calories burned by forearm and wrist actions.

        Hellen Keller isn't half bad actually. I recommend someone else. I don't know if I'm allowed to post sources on AM though..
