If an incel goes without sex until 40 does he risk psychological damage?

I'm only asking because I'm still a virgin lol

  • Probably, but understand that you probably aren't really an Incel. A true Incel can't get laid because literally nothing he can do will get him sex - and that's actually RARE.

    Most guys who consider themselves Incels are really just guys who have the potential to get women (perhaps not for casual sex, but for relationships, which would include sex), but are simply unwilling to make the necessary changes to their attitudes and lifestyle to be able to attract women - OR, they have decided that they are only willing to date/sleep with 9s and 10s, even though they themselves are a 2 or 3 from women's perspective (though they could be a 6 or 7 with some work).

    I can feel sorry for the genuine Incel, but I really don't have any sympathy for those who simply give up without having ever really given it a real effort. in my opinion, those guys are celibate by their own choice, and, hey, that's their right, but they shouldn't be whining about their own choices either.

  • Umm possibly?

    As long as you're not obsessed with it I think you should be fine.

    If you become obsessed and let it consume your life then yeah... It's possible.

    After all there was that infamous case about this virgin dude that shot up a sorority house.

  • Yes, if he has toxic mental thoughts around the concept. The psychological toll he'll put onto himself can damage him.

  • He'll go gay long before that

  • No he will be lacking some relationship experience, but I wouldn't call it damage. You do not need that to be a fully functional person with a good life.

  • Naah. He'll just dismiss it.

  • It all depends on the person.
    I was a virgin till 35. A number of factors but yeah, there were many mental barriers holding me back. The underlying factors made me pretty unhappy for a long time.
    I've changed a lot in the past few years. I think being able to make emotional connections with people has been a bigger achievement then sex. Sex is great bit the high is short lived.

  • No I don't think so

  • High possibility

  • Uh no. You can go without sex your entire life.
