According to officials, Sergio claimed that it was "no nut november" and that he couldn't let his little brother fail on the first day of the month.

A Challenge Where A man must not ejaculate aka bust a nut for the whole month of November

However the picture illustrating the story is not of anyone named "Sergio Lopez" but it appears to be the mugshot of a "SERGIO GIOVANY RANGEL" who was apparently arrested for cocaine possesion according to this website:
