Hi,

So I've re-posted this new thread so that others can see the results of the poll.
Basically, I been looking into no-fap (no porn or masturbation for 90 days) and it seems
like a very difficult thing to do.
So I'm starting this poll/thread to see how difficult it actually is, and just to gain some general perspective on it.
This thread could also be just a place for people to discuss their habits/seek information etc.

Haha, I know, I'm not that used to using UG, even though I've had an account for a while now
#4
I voted none of your business because it's none of your business and now everyone can know that I voted for the option that says none of your business
it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me

Haha, fair enough

I just thought I'd post a public poll anyway, as is it doesn't seem fair if it's just me who can see the average result (especially if others may be interested)

I don't really think this is any more personal than most stuff discussed here, really.

Also I don't really get why someone would be interested in going checking out what everybody's answers were nor why this would be a big deal.

It's 3 to 5 times a week for me, depending on how much stuff I have to do.
It's something I do to pass time 'cause I don't have anything to do most of the times, so when I have work to do the rate drops.

Fair enough,I don't mind either which user votes for what, I just wanted to make sure all the users could see what the result of the poll is, like to see the average score, which I'm sure people would be interested in.

But yeah thanks for voting, I would say 3-5 is my usual average, but for a while I've tried to make a conscious effort to cut down, and now it's like once a week.

Wait, I don't think you got the concept of public poll.

People can always see the results of a poll you open and the results only, but making it public makes it so that everyone can also see who chose what option, hence people saying you could have kept the thing anonymous.

Ooooooooooooo, I know what you mean..

My mistake!

On the previous thread, a user posted "not public, not interested" and I read that as meaning that the 'public' couldn't see the results.

I shan't post another thread as I dnt want to annoy anyone, but yeah thanks for the heads-up

Of course it's difficult, we're not meant to abstain from sexual activity. It's our instinct to ejaculate in as many holes as possible, even if that means the hole you made because you bought too thin of tissues

I haven't fapped in two weeks because I'm so busy with work, so it's not really by choice.


I'm still on-off with it. Longest streak so far is 22 days, but I still find myself a little too sceptical to stay at it for long.

I like waiting upwards of a week sometimes so that it halfway feels like the first time I ever did it.

Now I just stop around Wednesdays so that I can wait till the weekend for when I go see the GF.

EDIT: And speaking of streaks, my best since I first did it at 12 was almost 6 weeks. I was in boot camp though, and I'm pretty sure they put Salt Peter in the Gatorade So I almost never even thought about sex until maybe a day or two before graduation.

Holy shit though.....it was like the first time all over again, but then it was like cleaning up after a tornado hit. Was such a geyser release that my balls ached for hours afterwards

I know the option says 'twice a day or more', But I don't think that adequately represents the higher frequency mastrubaters like myself, who masturbate regularly around once every 45 minutes
It's over simplified, So what!

Sounds like a nice way to ruin getting laid by blowing it within a minute.


At least your load will be quite impressive

That's what the ladies like, right? :-)

The main benefit is motivation to go out and get laid.


Kind of, but there's a lot more to it.

I'm not necessarily saying I stand by it all, I'm still 50/50, but it's worth everyone checking out this website and watching the video in particular: http://yourbrainonporn.com/garys-tedx-talk-great-porn-experiment

I suppose at the moment I'm of the opinion that maybe once or twice a week is healthiest and if possible you shouldn't watch porn at all.

It's not porn's fault social inepts get desensitized by the internet.

There was this one time in France when, because I was sharing a bunk with my family for 3 weeks straight, there was hardly anywhere to fap apart from when having a shower. But anyway I was too stupid to think to just fap in the bathroom whenever I felt like it. And near the end of a dinner in a restaurant at the village we were staying in, I pretended to feel ill and that I needed to get some rest at the house. I was excused, got out a packet of tissues and splurged the thickest, gooiest semen I ever spooged. It felt so good that I fapped out another good load 15 mins later. An hour after that, my parents arrived back at the house and commented that the colour in my face came back.

So yeah, 3 weeks when I was 16 is my record.

Depends how busy I am. I guess on average 3-5 times a week.

I see my girlfriend on Sundays so I don't masturbate on Saturdays and obviously not on Sundays. I found out that the sex is way better if I don't pull my pork the day before I see her.

The point here is to realize that these behaviours CAN become problematic - not that they are inherently problematic. If you don't see it as a problem for yourself then it likely isn't. If you suspect that it might be a problem then stop fooling yourself.

This one time I didn't masturbate for over a week and noticed that in my head I became more attracted to girls/women on the street etc. Masturbation helps with not being creepy in my head.

Sceptical about whether porn addiction is a real thing or sceptical about whether you specifically are addicted to it? If you've felt the need to try and give it up then all this seems like petty rationalization for throwing in the towel.

Neither What's with all the judging? I don't even know you.

I was just referring to whether or not the whole 'nofap' movement has any real benefits, or if it's just broscience.

As far as I'm aware, lots of people are doing it, not necessarily just those who feel they are addicted to porn.
