And so it begins......

I am not a religious man but have enjoyed the experience of some of the religious festivities if nothing else to help me appreciate and understand others points of view. In the past I have partaken in Ramadan the Muslim tradition of fasting from sun up to sun down although I admit I didn't fully abstain from all that is required by tradition read into that sex and booze but truly did abstain from doing these during the daylight and found it an excellent test of self control. In keeping with that experience and expanding on the catholic tradition of lent I am going to attempt to abstain from orgasming for the next 40 days. Similar to the movie if anyone has seen it. My last record since I was about 12 has been 5 days so this shall be no small task as any man will tell you.

So if over the next 40 days if I am cranky please understand and lend some support but for goodness sake don't touch me or tempt me...YOU KNOW WHO YOU TEMPTRESS ARE!!! ...LOL

What is included
No Wanking
No Wet Dreams
No Sex

I am worried about the possible side effects such as weight gain, but am prepared to deal with the ramifications.

I know this sounds crazy but I guess every once and a while you have to test yourself.

And so this test begins.....

Hehehehehehehehehe.

Worried about wiehgt gain, how about INSANITY! I think it may be better to test your will power with a non human bodily function. Men are made/programmed to spread their seed, simple as that. That is why we have wet dreams if you do abstain for too long. The body NEEDS that release.

Good luck my friend, but 40 Days is IMPOSSIBLE, no way.

I think you will break your previous record, and my guess is:

9 Days.

Good luck hombre.

Hey 9 days would be great...i had a hard time just showering this morning and it only just started..lol

Megsta said...

Good luck with your 40 days... I do hope that showering does not become too difficult for you, as I'm sure everyone involved wouldn't enjoy your lack of, if it were to come to that! Maybe you could find some old man to sponge bathe you if it gets truely unbearable! hehehehe

holy shit brian! that was actually the other thing i gave up last year. i didn't know if it was appropriate to put on my blog, but since you brought it up... yeah. but once i fell off the booze wagon, i chose to fall off the sex wagon too and i'll tell you what... it was worth the wait. i went about 25+ days probably.

brian, you've insprired me. i'll do it again too.

did you know lent is 40 days only if you exclude sundays? some people cheat on sundays because of that. i personally don't, but if you're looking for a loophole...

Brian in Mpls said...

40 days......hell has to freeze..

I give you 5 days.....no more...

theresa said...

Best of luck with that Brian. Be the master of your domain.

Maybe your loyal readers should start a betting pool like they did in the movie...

I thought about giving up sex for Lent, but thought it was too obvious since I'm not currently having sex, nor do I have any prospects on the horizon. Then I thought about giving up boozing, but thought it was too difficult since my Irish heritage forces me to celebrate St. Patrick's Day...and also because I'm turning 25 soon and will officially be in my mid-20s (which saddens me).

So now I'm thinking that rather than giving something up, I'll do something extra, you know? Cuz apparently they changed the rules and you can do that now.

Say Rah! said...

brian, you competitive at all?

Brian in Mpls said...

I compete to the core..lol


lol..Thanks Dem

I am master of my domain at least for the time being...welcome day two!!!

Hey don't be sad mid 20's are pretty good!!! The opposite sex isn't what I am am worried about it is the quiet time when I am alone between 10-11 before bed that has me freaked out...lol
I be you have lots of prospects...you are pretty cute;)

Say Rah! said...

good. then don't give in or i'll hold it over your head that i didn't.

Brian in Mpls said...

Ditto!!(is that how you spell dito?)

theresa said...

Ditto is the correct spelling

and welcome to day two :)

Brian in Mpls said...

Thanks my spelling is so piss poor I can't believe it...lol

Here is hoping to make it to day three;)

FACE said...

good luck! the only part that will be hard to control will be the wetdreams. I tried something similar, but the dreams conquered. I didn't even think I could still get them. Anyways hope you make it.

Say Rah! said...

i don't think it's fair to count those. it's not like you can control that happening, i mean, right? [knows nothing on this subject]

Brian in Mpls said...

In the movie they black lighted but I think i might let nocturnal emissions slip.
