An annual challenge encouraging men to refrain from masturbating or even, for many, having any sex for the month, No Nut November was initially created as a parody of internet-borne phenomena such as the Ice Bucket Challenge or Movember, skewering the silliness of viral internet challenges along with the more extreme claims made by proponents of NoFap, an anti-porn subreddit with half a million members. For most participants, the challenge is essentially an excuse to shitpost, as well as tweet memes skewering some of the more exaggerated purported benefits of abstaining from masturbation. Because the challenge is associated with abstaining from porn, some people associated with the movement have taken the extra step of harassing adult performers on social media, giving it an additional layer of troubling implications. A new meme brings these implications into sharp relief. Then, in late October, the coomer resurfaced thanks to a Twitter campaign led by a user named TeapotLad , in which users vowed to change their avatars to the coomer should they fail No Nut November. It literally re-wires your brain and causes erectile dysfunction.

All the people participating and helping to organize No Nut November-related communities who agreed to talk to me for this story condemned calls for violence and said that they would ban such behavior in their own community, but the followers of anti-masturbation and anti-porn belief systems have been expressing similarly violent ideology for decades.
