So, DD shared something with us this evening…
Almost put this under “Jokes”, but it’s really not funny…
DH and I were discussing No-shave-November and whether he would participate this year (he will) when DD piped up that the teenage boys at her school do this thing called “No Nut November”, wherein “Nutting” equals ejaculating. So, essentially, the boys (presumably only the ones too young to shave) are promising not to ejaculate for the month of November.
Just when I think I’ve heard everything…
Anyone else heard of this?
I remember reading about this last year. Some people take it quite seriously and use it as a goal/way to stay away from porn. Apparently, the porn industry is unhappy with it because they can actually see a dip in their revenue from it.
It was a big reminder for me on how broken the world is when I came across a feminist article ranting against it. The premise was that NNN was anti-women because it reduced the amount of casual sex that women were having by taking some men off the table for a month. Really?…something that reduces the number of men masturbating to porn is anti-women?
It is kinda funny to read y’alls thoughts on this. No nut November is mostly a meme on the internet. Like most memes, the societal impact is negligible. I think it is also ironic and hilarious that I am explaining this because trying to explain memes is also a meme.
I asked my DH about this, and he said before marriage, he tried to abstain from masturbating (and therefore ejaculation) for as long as possible, and his body would find release when he was asleep.
I hope these boys and young men are aware of what could happen 😛
