Show Notes:

This may be the hardest week yet for Kenyon and Kwamin as we try out nofap, a subreddit that promotes abstinence from masturbation. We talk about their experiences with masturbation, especially the dangers of the family computer growing up. Then we look more into what exactly the subreddit nofap is. The users call themselves “fapsternauts,” and going by demographics, mostly 18-24 men who are virgins. 99% of the users end up relapsing so it does not seem super effective. They claim the abstaining from masturbating will give you ‘superpowers,’ like increased productivity, confidence, and even emotions. This is because, they claim, you aren’t losing your “nut nutrients” by masturbating. Then we look into historical anti-masturbation movements, like Kellogg flakes. Apparently the inventor of Kellogg flakes made them to server as an anti-masturbatory dietary aid (not quite sure how that was supposed to work.) He would also burn off clitoris’s with acid and advocated for yogurt enemas, which are probably almost as bad as eating Kellogg flakes. One week later… Kenyon survived the week and said he felt a little more ambitious. He also said he felt much angrier than he’s ever felt before, so a half success. Kwamin failed on first day, mostly likely because he started browsing instagram models on his way home from recording the podcast episode Subscribe, Rate, and Review on iTunes - Link Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook
