50 Cent took to social media to say he’s giving up xes by “meditating” and “practicing abstinence” in 2024.

The 48-year-old rapper (born Curtis Jackson) told his followers he isn’t “into havin’ sex” and “ain’t into makin’ love” anymore.


“My new idea is so big, I don’t have time to be distracted I’m practicing abstinence, I have been meditating and focusing on my goals. I hope this New Year helps you excel to the next level,” he wrote.

Fiddy’s followers praised him for embarking on his new journey.

But others wonder if Fiddy’s New Year resolution is motivated by xesual dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as “impotence”, affects 1 in 5 men by age 40. The number increases to 15% by age 70.

ED is inevitable as some men age. In addition to age, other causes of ED include type 2 diabetes, obesity, smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, and high blood pressure.

Effective treatment options include medication and surgery (penile pumps) that allow men to keep it up long enough to have xesual intercourse.
