Hello my friend!
If you started your Mindgasm training with this challenge, your Source musculature should be starting to grow by now. Holding a Level 7 squeeze for more than 30 seconds should no longer be a problem. And you should feel some basic distinction between Base, Center and Top. Shadowflexes will always remain, and that is fine.
DID I FAIL?
One of the cornerstones of the Mindgasm challenge is to avoid classic masturbation.
The main reason is that this heightens your sensitivity for subtle pleasure beyond your primary.
There seems to be some confusion about whether ejaculations are considered a failure of the challenge.
Wet dreams are common. Sex with a partner is mentioned. Some reach their first HFWOs (hands free wet orgasms).
None of these ejaculations are a failure.
As long as you do not manually stimulate yourself and don’t watch porn, you are good.
Semen retention can help to increase your sensitivity, and it makes sense to limit ejaculations to the ‘absolute necessary’. But beyond a week or two, it does not really add much benefit.
So after the challenge, it makes sense to return to a more sustainable rhythm, depending on your age that will range between 2 and 7 days. You won’t need pornography to arouse you, it will happen naturally, and you’ll know when it’s time.
DOES SCIENCE SUPPORT SEMEN RETENTION?
FAILING IS GOOD
You correct what caused the fail and move on.
To revisit your failures, not to dwell in the bad feelings, but to analyze what went wrong.
And do it right next time.
Don’t compare your day 10 to the day 3291 of someone else.
