US The Great Porn Experiment



so after watching that video explaining the mental health breakthroughs porn addicts allegedly have when they quit watching porn, im gonna actually give it a try for a couple of weeks. i am in no way a porn addict, but i'm curious as to whether this will actually affect me.

the pit often has no-porn and no-fap contests of a sort as i'm sure you've all noticed. yall niggas have any experiences to share about how quitting porn affected you? or was it, as i suspect, just a boring few weeks?

EDIT: this is now a no-porn pact thread! everybody join up and we can discuss our boring pornless lives and complain about our lifeless penises

here are some more videos on the subject of pornographys effect on the brain, courtesy of hydra150:

Unless it's causing you serious problems, why quit?

Watch it. It's really interesting.

I did this during the summer for about 4 weeks. I didn't notice a difference, bu I'm not a big porn watcher anyway.

My primary visual cortex is probably warped from the years of explicit content.

Thing is... if I have access to sex then I don't watch porn...

It's only when I don't have access to sex that I watch porn so... I mean how does that work in this context? If I can't have sex does it matter that I do and when I can I don't anyway...


Maybe I'm just not addicted to it.

I stopped watching porn and masturbating for max about 2 months, saw no difference so basically not worth it.

Already 2.5+ months in. Started because of aforementioned ED. Alternated between phases of craving/dead dick and a gradual coming on of fatigue(been crashing halfway into the day and sleeping for 2 hours the last 3 days)/nausea (all I've eaten today is a slice of toast)/soreness/irritability.

because it's apparently really bad for your mental health. i do have some of the porn addiction symptoms the guy describes in the video, moderate social anxiety (self diagnosed mind you, but i'm sure i have it) and i seem to have a hard time concentrating in many situations. the guy said nothing about what moderate porn users experience when quitting porn, and i'm interested in it.

mostly i'm interested in not being such a socially anxious **** and not having concentration problems, and if quitting porn helps with that i'm going to do so, or at least cut down on porn use. starting now i'm going to abstain from watching porn for a month or so and see if it affects me positively.

Quit and see if dead dick hits you... if so then keep going becuase it likely has some affect on you.

Shrunken lifeless dick. The ED I mentioned was limited to trying and keep a hard on during sex. Could only keep it up with porn (dozens of tabs to continually switch through to keep my arousal up).

fascinating video.

without getting into too much personal detail, i'd like to try this. belated new year's resolution. and maybe cutting down on internet usage in general.

I've never been officially diagnosed with anxiety or ADD, but I've shown symptoms of those since before I started jerkin' the gherkin, or had internet access at home. I think the problem lies deeper. Porn may be a contributing factor but it's certainly not the only cause.

Quitting porn may help with anxiety but I would suggest cognitive therapy/guided meditation as the best course of action ( no harm in quitting porn as well ). 1 month of abstinence probably won't be good enough to see positive results, if anything you'll be in the dead dick phase.

Sometimes I find it amazing that I'm the only guy (on here at least) who doesn't watch porn. Not putting myself above anyone else or anything.
