Porn Star’s ‘Masturbation Diet’ Not Recommended

Throughout the years different lifestyle diets have popped up. We have the Subway diet, the South Beach diet, Atkins and most recently extreme fitness plans such as Insanity. There’s one diet that has gotten a bit of publicity for its unorthodox practice to weight loss, and that’s the Masturbation Diet.

Before you start practicing the Masturbation Diet, know that according to experts this diet is not recommended. We first heard about the Masturbation Diet from masturbation advocator and porn star Kayden Kross. Kross, who is popular in the adult film community unveiled the diet sometime in 2010 in a blog post for adult site xCritic. Besides that, another person has come out in the community to express his success rate with losing weight through masturbation.

Referring to the Masturbation Diet as a dietary suppressant, Kross writes on her blog Unkrossed: “Orgasms are great for dopamine and serotonin too, and they have a lot to do with the reward systems of the brain too, and they’re like a zero on the weight watchers scale.”

According to Asian cultural site Kotaku, 28-year-old man that goes by the name of Yuichi Ito swears by the diet and was able to lose 9 pounds in two months, by watching his diet and practicing the masturbation method between three to five times a day. Agreeing with porn star Kayden Kross, Ito said, “I read online that pleasuring oneself was the same as running 200 meters.”

However before you test this theory out, know that it is definitely not recommended. A doctor chimed in on the practice on Nikkan Spa, which is a men’s publication with x rated content. Tokyo Dermatologist Yoshijima wrote, “The issue with the effectiveness of this diet is that while you are exhausting your body, you are not consuming calories by using physical strength.”

What will the world come up with next? One has to wonder if we’re completely against the natural activity of working out that someone would go out of their way to lose weight doing an activity that requires little to no movement.
