Quitting masturbation helps with quitting porn... you could try it that way but success rates just don't hold up. FWIF, I couldn't quit masturbation the first 2 weeks. After a while you realize that your body isn't really craving a release that badly, you're not 12 anymore, it's just scumbag brain fiending for arousal.

yeah, but i wonder if that would be effective. seems like whatever's going on in my brain would probably just be a highlight reel. which is basically the same thing, right?

Im totally down for trying this, but Im confused as to what I have to do. Do I have to stop masturbating entirely? Or do i just quit porn?

one of the big things the dude in the video stressed was "novelty" .. there's no novelty in a highlight reel. what the studies in rams suggested was that having only a few mates (a few fantasies) caused less stimulation rather than a new mate every time (internet porn).

There's no established science for recovery, just overwhelming self-report whic indicate that it's much easier to quit porn if you quit masturbating too. Go see Gary's website.

The NoFap community on reddit suggests to abstain from porn, masturbation (with or without orgasm - this one is tough, reffered to as edging by Gary's website), and all orgasm ( less emphasis here by Gary when it comes to sexual intercourse ). Edging was a problem for me. Also had some mornings when I woke up ready to blow my load and had to put slightly pinch the bottom of my dick to neutralize.

The problem being that it quickly escalates into craving for novelty due to sensitization.

When I do it without porn, after, I still feel the need to watch it so I think its something more... I feel like having a gf should be enough and I'm gunna force that upon myself

Last few days (last 3 specifically) have been pretty bad - not indicative of the entire process - but still went to all my classes. Like I said, in my case, the withdrawal symptoms have gradually gotten worse. Hopeful that this signals the final steps of my recovery. Also, I started with porn induced ED so my case isn't really all that mild.

I'll do it too I guess, I have social anxiety and ADHD, if I notice this helps after... hmmm maybe 2 months at least? I guess I will continue with it.


If you hit the flatline/dead dick then you should consider going a full 90 days.

Quote by JackWhiteIsButts
Bitch please, masturbation is all I've got going for me and now you want me to give it up just like that?


Give up porn. You shouldn't have to rely on it to jerk off. Then notice how hard it is to abstain from porn while you keep on jerking it.

I believe that pornful and nonpornful masturbation sessions can coexist in harmony. There is no reason to abstain from watching porn for not watching porn's sake unless you're also giving up masturbation altogether for some blasphemous reason.

If you're not addicted to porn then you've never found the good stuff. I feel like I need to stop... I have an awesome super horny gf too so I don't see why I need porn. I'll join ya!
I will never understand why in the world people don't consider watching porn whilst in a relationship a form of cheating (unless PERHAPS you're watching it with your significant other).
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.

Give up porn for mental health reasons. Also so you can fully enjoy how sexy real girls are when you're brain isn't desensitized by artificial erotica.

hmm.. i wanna do this

Will do, hopefully it isn't as bad as I think it is if I do get it, but if I do get it I guess I should take it a bit more seriously I think.

Watching porn makes you dumb.

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/cupids-poisoned-arrow/201212/no-porn-better-working-memory

Watching porn also desensitizes the part of your brain that sends blood to your dick to get a hard on. Meaning that in real sexual encounters, less blood is sent, and your erection is less full. PORN SHRINKS YOUR DICK.

Porn is a tool like any other, you wouldn't ask a pilot to give up airplanes for a horse and buggy so he can appreciate how vast the continent really is, would you?

Because people understand that they are not perfect and are not always the ultimate sex symbol in their partner's eyes.

Having said that, I don't understand why people in relationships watch porn when they can have sex pretty much any time they want (spoken like a true virgin).

Real consequences for relationships, bro. Being hooked on porn is sure to make you sexually dissatisfied with your partner.

Says you, not everyone is incapable of separating porn from reality. It's not like watching porn is magically going to establish deep-rooted unrealistic sexual expectations in my brain hole. What if I only watch vanilla amateur stuff too? Will that still contribute to sexual dissatisfaction? Or is it only watching girls with bleached assholes and tits that look like water wings taking three dicks at once that's bad?

You think your brain which is adapted to human life 120k years ago is going to make a distinction between airbrushed, shooped, modeled virtual girls and ones you meet on a day to day basis?
