    Congratulations Chris, and it's great when one sale makes up for the previous name registrations you wish you avoided it. Now you can sit at the poker table of domaining with full racks and can play in a better mood financially and psychologically.

    Well NameWorth got the estimate pretty close.

    I wonder if their estimate was the same before the sale?

    How about it @NameBuyer.com ?

    Awesome! I have a sort of opposite of your domain which is also a popular term in the NO FAP niche lol. I didn’t expect this kind of sales price for this niche, but I have retained hope that wetdreaming dot king may sell now :hungry:

    So i'm looking in Google, and Semen Retention isn't like a field that brings in... money? I mean, i even tried Semen Retention Consultant... 1st page had no consultants trying to make money giving advice.

    It's not unknown that domain price depends on the industry's wealth. I'm not understanding why someone bought it for $18k when all I'm seeing on Google are personal websites and AdClick articles about how to semen retain.

    I'm not bashing your sail at all lol! It's awesome! I mean, whoah! A HAND REGGAE for $18k! That's wilder than Vegas Poker.

    It's just that... it doesn't make any sense, imho. And I'm so interested in what your negotiations were like... Did he lowball you for $100, then you were like, "Nah, $18,000."

    Good timing.

    SemenRetention.com had been consecutively registered from June 2014 to June 2018.

    You had registered it in September of 2018.

    After deducting 75 days from the expiration cycle, it appears this domain was available to hand register for a month or two, before the registration idea popped in your head.

    That's even more amazing.. 2 years, $18k. I had thought he meant he got it in 2014!

    Could just be that someone is selling a related product like a supplement and want's to capitalize on the 26,000 global searches each month. If a searcher is looking to do something semi-extreme like this, they are probably the perfect customer for a nutritional supplement. It's like selling protein powder to people looking up dumbbell curls.

    If they can get half of those 26,000 visitors to view their supplement organically, it will be a much better investment than paying $1.00 per click x 13,000 visitors ($13,000 per month). Like you said, there probably isn't much competition right now so could be somewhat easy SEO-wise compared to other nutrition niches.

    Could even be a book if the subject matter is popular enough.

    I think this "method" is how the Nazi's successfully captured France. I think they practiced this.

    Their UBoats were long and hard and full of seamen.

    the real question is. Does 26,000 monthly searches really merit the spend on this domain? I have domains with far more monthly searches than this. Should I expect at least $17K from now on for those domains?

    I really don't think so.

    I've known all along this industry is the most fu*cked up industry know to man, but this proves it. First I have to congratulate you, for this the greatest "buy and sell" transaction of a lifetime(y)

    I'll add a little irony/humor to your story.....last night while folding and putting my socks away, I think of the name "Mask Socks" and voila; MaskSocks, MaskSox and MasqueSox evolve. Then after reading your post I got to thinking how socks could help "semen retention"....i can't go there, but it proves yet again how screwed up the domain industry truly is:xf.eek:

    Maybe Mantak Chia and his crew bought it.

    He would be promoting his books, martial arts, retreats, etc. more so than supplements.


    By retaining our seed, we need less and less qi from the outside world to fuel us because we have turned the most vital substance a man has inward to maximize vitality.

    Exactly. People shoot for search volume far greater... if you're buying a $18k domain, the search volume might as well be in the 100s of thousands if not millions. (ok nevermind millions XD).

    If the sail is real, then this is definitely a huge outlier. Especially since the buyer could've gotten the .ME. But i see now that most of the TLDs and even the hyphenated .com are taken. All by the same person I think because they all resolve to the same sailz page.

    not just that, if you check namebio, there are no "semen" domain sailz above $800. I do hope the buyer paid lol.
