Hey guys

I am creating a POIS video aimed at the semen retention & nofap communities. The aim of the video will be to convince any potential POIS'ers who are apart of these communities into realizing they have an actual diagnosable medical condition. The video will then offer links to possible relief methods. It will also cover nuances to address commonly held arguments which are made from people who are completely ideologically consumed by some of the eastern ideas widespread in these communities, which cloud their mind from any realization of having/ or knowing it as a medical condition.

I'm going to do my best in making it as friendly and personable as possible. I was apart of those communities for a very long time before realizing I had POIS, so I am going to try and see things from their perspective.

Please comment any ideas/arguments you think should be discussed/included in the video which would help people from the r/semenretention and r/nofap communities to better understand the message better.

If you were apart of these communities, and had undiagnosed POIS, and bought into the whole paradigm of eastern wisdom associated with abstinence (like I did!), which clouded your ability to see the symptoms as a medical condition PLEASE comment your story below and I will feature it in the video.

Thanks!

Great idea, Warrior, keep us updated on your project !

Unfortunately, I have never been a member of these two communities, so I have no specific idea for you.  But I feel you will know what to say to them since you know about their beliefs :)

This is basically a fantastic idea, the concept of introducing even one more person to an illness they didn't know they had is amazing.  I'd like you to know I made a short post on reddit /nofap recently and it got removed within a few hours for disinformation.  I simply stated:

""
Title: 1% of you, or maybe even more, are suffering with Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome

Text: If you notice you have illness symptoms for around 4-7 days which wear off to total recovery, you may have POIS, look up pois center online, there are many things you can try for it. It is a rare condition but it's a certainty that some of you have it.
""

I assume your planned video will be a lot more approachable, my post was a spur of the moment attempt at helping someone, and obviously it may not actually be 1% of them with the illness.

Scientific studies (which I know we've been having a lot more of the recent years) could help a lot over there IMHO.

One thing I will say is that I always noticed that my symptoms sounded and felt somewhat different and generally worse from what the majority of other users on r/nofap were commenting on.

Good luck!

Yeah, the message definitely needs to be conveyed in a special way that doesn't immediately trigger resistance or frustration from them. Need to somehow open up their minds where they feel like the message is coming from good intentions, not someone who is "out to get them to ejaculate/PMO". I will contemplate further how to do this.

I think there are varying levels of POIS. Definitely possible to have a mild POIS, those cases would be less inclined to do anything about it because it probably isn't that big of a deal for them. Obviously not everyone in those communities has POIS though. I would also think that the semen retention communities have a higher amount of POISers as they exclusively focus on the negative effects of ejaculation, where as nofap mostly focus on porn addiction / dopamine issues.
