Where does No Nut November come from?
No Nut November is a challenge that originated on the internet and it requires men to give up ejaculating for the entire month of November. Nut, in this case, refers to “ejaculating,” and it’s been used as a slang term since at least the 1970s. The challenge itself riffs on No Shave November, when men grow mustaches or beards for the month, often as part of a charitable cause.
According to the website Know Your Meme, the challenge was first posted on Urban Dictionary in 2011 by user bicboi6969696969. Originally, No Nut November focused on refraining from masturbation, though over time people added sexual intercourse to the challenge.
The rules of No Nut November vary, as some men claim that there’s a three-strike forgiveness policy and that the use of so-called “free nut” coupons is allowed. So much for going hard or go home, we suppose.

Despite appearances to the contrary, the purpose of No Nut November wasn’t, in fact, torture. Instead of wasting their time masturbating or having sex, the challenge encourages men to, you know, pick up a new hobby or learn a new language.
Day 12 of #NoNutNovember
I can make wine out of water now. I sleep upside down like a bat and I can see demons. I met with the grim reaper today and told him when he was going to die. I can walk on water and melt ice by putting it in the freezer

Day 14 of #NoNutNovember
My mental strength has become superhuman. Without maps, I can find the nearest Denny's from anywhere. I can hold open doors for women with just my mind and can solve any calculus problem in seconds. This is how that virgin Isaac Newton must've felt.

Others are more honest (maybe a little too much so?) about their struggle—and the humorous lengths they go to refrain from masturbating.

Although nut typically refers to male orgasms, women, of course, may participate in No Nut November as well. Women may also complain about male partners participating in the challenge.
