Didnt watch the vid, but I'm confident you can get the same breakthroughs from breaking other addictions.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

I'm curious, how much do you guys watch porn to consider it an addiction?


It's more about how you watch porn. Are you going on a porn binge regularly? Do you need multiple tabs, anxiety producing porn, and such?

I only watch it every 2, 3 days. I never used to use it either, not for about 4/5 years after I starter jerking. I was too paranoid of my parents finding out, then I got my own laptop.

Even then, I would watch it. Then turn off the computer and go do my business. So in a weird way this a recent thing for me, I've certainly never had problems with ED.

The only time I thought it would be becoming a problem was when I realized masturbating without had becoming boring. But being with a girl? Way more exciting than porn...



I'm doing this but I don't consider it an addiction. The past few months I would not watch porn or jerk off on week days because I stayed in my college dorm with other guys and it would have been weird, but on the week ends I would do it. On vacations I do it almost every day unless I feel sick or don't have time for it (am too tired).

I've never had ED and I would assume being with a real girl is way better than porn, thing is, unfortunately I'm not really good at getting girls and that's why I do porn and jerk off. I'm just doing this to see how my body and mind react to this changes for an extended period of time, like I said I've been diagnosed with social Anxiety and ADHD and I remember not being like that when I was really young and for some reason just get gradually worse, it may be a long shot but I'll give anything a try that has even a small chance to help.

100% going to try this. I'm fairly sure i display a lot of the symptoms and have done for a good few years. Not looking forward to dead dick

I was going to do something like this pretty soon anyways. I definatly qualify, I've been super deprived over the past few years especially.. so my jergen time has shot through the roof to the point where porn and masturbation have become pretty boring. And I am currently dealing with a few of the "symptoms" described here. Count me in.

I think I might try to stop entirely for a month, then pick back up limiting myself to only 1-2 times a week...maybe even without any porn. Should be interesting, I remember trying to quit in the past and I only made it to about 6 days max. It was so built up by that point for me that when I came, it shot out fast enough to where it actually hurt... I wish I was lying about that.

Oh and just for the lulz, I recently heard something pretty funny. I was on some random website recently and it claimed that woman were naturally more drawn to men with higher sperm counts or men that don't jerg it incredibly often for some reason. Though I personally think that is kind of a load, I figured it would be interesting(hilarious) to hear your opinions on that.

Not too long ago, I went 2 weeks without porn, masturbation or sex... sooo horny by the end of that.

I haven't jacked off in over 3 months at least. I find it quite easy. But I'm getting very regular Sex, so that's probably why.



It's ironic that you're posting here with your bouncy tits gif
#129
Definitely going to try this. I've noticed in the not so distant past how mentally and physically drained I would feel after viewing porn even without masturbation. I've tried to quit many times but alas I've been unsuccessful.
The video was definitely very informative though. I actually feel excited to quit although these next few weeks are going to be pretty tough.
#130
I got questions. I rarely watch porn. Once a month maybe. But I beat off way too much. Is it healthy to just stop? Will stopping have the same effects as mentioned in the video?

This video talks about porn hijacking your dopamine system which can take months to fix. Jerking off too much can lower the density of androgen receptors which serve testosterone but you should be able to get back to normal in about 2 weeks if you stop.
#132
well how often is too often to masturbate?

Also, why do masturbation euphamisms always sound so painful? "Beating off" "pounding your meat" "choking the chicken", etc.

There was recently a brief bit posted on one of my science-news feeds about a European research outfit which wanted to do some testing involving men who "use" pornography and those that don't.
Unfortunately, they couldn't find any who didn't....

The question is rather silly to me. Men almost universally enjoy pornographic images. There is no difficulty with this whatever except in those rare cases when the individual has an obsessive or addictive personality disorder and the tendency to collect pornography begins to affect normal living and relations with other people.
Note that such people would tend to be involved with something else if it wasn't porn, and it would have the same affect. It's a result of their particular personality disorder, not the porn.

There have been all manner of studies conducted by all manner of organizations attempting to find some sort of horrible effect regarding the use of erotic material. None has ever been found.
Studies conducted by "anti" groups and studies conducted by "neutral" groups and even studies conducted by "pro" groups.
No effect. Well, not exactly none... It has been found that in countries that have free and open access to pornography, there is a decrease in minor sex crimes. Less exposing, peeping, groping, etc. Apparently, the people that have these problems are able to sufficiently get their "jollies" by consuming porn rather than annoying other people.
It has little or no effect on serious sex crimes.
As for masturbation... Again a nearly universal practice and completely without any harmful effect. The old joke... There are two kinds of men, those who masturbate and those who lie about not masturbating.
Why would you "abstain"? Do you think it's a sin? Well, I'm not going to get into that... I'm an atheist. It's an irrational notion.
Do you think it's unhealthy? Utter nonsense disproved since the turn of the century.
Keeps the plumbing working. Doesn't hurt anything unless you use unsafe techniques like the gentleman who used to rub his tool up against the drive-belt of his industrial sanding machine....
The expected happened and he was considerably injured.
Avoid such silly practices and have fun. Don't worry about it.

Quote by ChucklesMginty

Yet a lot of people have to masturbate every day, and most men would consider that normal. To some people, that's hyper sexuality.

I don't need to masturbate every day. Sometimes I don't for quite awhile, and I remember/realize that I haven't done it in awhile.

Then I oil up and think, "This is gonna be great!"

Not advisable but it's your call. I didn't quit masturbating until I was 2 weeks in though.

Nothing wrong with fapping other than it makes it harder to abstain from porn. Only rule set in stone is no porn though.

Porn is boring me anyway. In fact, sometimes I can't help but laugh during some of the scenes cause of how bad the dialouge is

But yeah, quit jerkin' it for a while and suddenly average bitches become hot bitches. Don't know if thats good or bad

I'm about half-way through the video atm.
However, I don't think I've ever really had ED whilst on porn sites. I still have an easy time getting it up for even things I've watched before.

I'd still like to cut down on my usage though. Maybe limit my self to 1-2 every 2 days.
Plus, it's usually nicer when you've left it for a while.

I'd say I bate about 1-2 times a day (sometimes 3)
But I rarely go higher than that.

Damn I thought I was doing it a lot by doing it 4-5 times a week. I'm probably gonna start doing it less though. I'm finding it hard to get a 'strong' hard on nowadays. Hopefully doing it less will help with this.
