Partake in the ultimate challenge
Every one of our challenges is unique. Why are you here? What are your goals? You should review the following options, make some decisions, and document them before partaking in the NoFap challenge.
The vast majority of NoFap's users ("Fapstonauts") choose to abstain from masturbating to orgasm throughout the duration of their challenges.
"Edging" is physical stimulation without orgasm. This is masturbation and counts, but it is your call whether it constitutes failure of the challenge. For the vast majority of our users, edging counts as a reset.
As most Fapstronauts are here to recover from the overconsumption of pornography, most avoid porn during their challenge.
Choose your difficulty level. It is up to you whether you would like to allow yourself to engage in sexual acts with another person or not. Allowing no outlet for sexual release is dubbed "Hard Mode".
How long would you like to participate? A week? A month? Ninety days? A year? This is up to you. If you wish to sign up for a monthly tracking competition, find a sign up thread. If sign up threads are closed, feel free to post in the daily tracking threads with your progress anyway.
