I look at SR the same way I look at my investment strategy.
I'm a value investor.
I live by Warren Buffetts famous saying 'Money is what you pay and value is what you get.'
As I learnt about value investing I realized how paralell it is to semen retention.
When I ejaculate I sell off plenty of qualities (stocks) to get a big, short-term return. Intense pleasure.
What qualities am I selling off?
To name a few:
And what do I get in return? Pleasure. Which to me, long-term, is absolutely nothing.
Value investors look for long-term investments.
Retaining semen is like storing money in stocks that are compounding over time, long term.
The longer my streak streak is the more incredible things happen to me. My life polishes itself in every regard, day by day.
The longer I hold my money in wonderful companies the bigger returns I get.
