Quitting Porn Altogether

Recommended Posts

Triple Vacuum Seal

QUOTE (Melchior @ Monday, Feb 18 2013, 02:30) obviously having sex with another person is better, but it's not intrinsically healthier.

 

It actually is. Men are all around healthier if they ejaculate, which they could get from masturbation, but sex does a whole lot more than just make people ejaculate. Sexual prowess (not to be mistaken for promiscuity) is a very valuable social skill. From a mental and social/relationship perspective, experience in pleasing the opposite sex is far more valuable than the experience garnered from masturbation. The confidence, cardiovascular workout, bonding, creativity, oxytocin, and experience associated with pleasing someone through actual sex all contribute to one's overall health in a positive manner. From a physical perspective, the advantages to sex vs. masturbation are obvious. monocle.gif

 

 

 

 

The ironic thing about "nobody chooses masturbation over sex" or romantic relationships, look around these forums. lol.gifThis thread is saturated with people who spend their time beating off instead of finding a girl. I see what your saying about people doing both, but the time and sexual energy that goes into porn and masturbation cut's into the resources that could be used for real sex for many people in this generation.

that's true.

 

also, something you forgot to mention, is that sex makes the immune system stronger.

when you exchange bodily fluids with another person - especially from mucous membranes - you exchange each others immunities. not in the same way that a mother passes immunity to a child during pregnancy, but the way that being exposed to bacteria allows your body to get familiar and learn how to deal with it.

 

you obviously don't receive this benefit while wanking.

Now that's an interesting one. WebMD corroborates it too. Man healthy sex is underrated.

I see it as a coping mechanism/stress reliever more than a vice like drinking or smoking. I do it regularly because it's a natural high. Though, for the past few months I've kind of gotten bored with it. I think I just do it for the sake of it being a habit. Hopefully when I get to college in the fall I can experience the real deal.

There's some pretty interesting discussions on the subreddit /r/nofap here. Thought I'd just post it incase anyone wanted some help etc.

First of all, I'd like to apologize for bumping this, I realize it's a two-year-old thread, but there don't seem to be any active or open threads about this topic anymore, and I don't want to start my own.

 

This post might turn out to be pretty long, but if you can't find the patience to read through it, and not just skim through it, then that is your problem. If you're a regular porn user, this might actually help you. I'm also doing this to convince the nay-sayers that this is not just some fad and that people who quit porn are not a part of some freaking cult.

 

So why am I trying to restart this discussion? Because I might actually help someone. Yes. High-speed Internet porn is bad, especially for the younger generations. Yes, it actually is.

 

Now, the problem with this kind of topic is that there'll always be a few individuals who just HAVE to come in and start making comments such as: "Masturbation is normal! People have been doing this for thousands of years! Animals do it! It's natural! GTFO!" and sarcastic and rude variants of that.

 

To people who say things like that: read what I've written carefully. High-speed Internet porn is bad for you.

 

High-speed.

Internet porn.

 

This is NOT about masturbation. This is about PORN. Yes, masturbating is normal, people have been doing it for a long time, animals do it. Masturbating to high-speed Internet porn is NOT normal or healthy.

 

masturbating =/= masturbating to porn

 

How do I know it's bad? Well, here's the deal. In the last several years, on the Internet there have been hundreds and thousands of young people (mostly men), including me, reporting problems with their sex life. What problems? They can't get it up to real girls. They have stories about how they came home with their girlfriends, started making out and what not, and then were not able to get or maintain an erection. They also have problems keeping an erection while masturbating without porn. But once they turn on porn and try masturbating, bam! Everything seems to be working perfectly.

 

I won't go on and explain all this stuff myself. Instead, I'll let two videos do the talking. Now, if you don't want to watch these videos, then please DO NOT even try to reply negatively to this post or this topic, and DO NOT try to argue against NoFap. If you're too lazy to take 30 minutes off your time and "educate" yourself about the potential negative effects or porn, then you don't really know what NoFap is about. When and if you watch the vids, we can talk.

 

I'll just write down the words the second video begins with, this might catch your attention:
"... people are developing sexual dysfunctions caused by today's high-speed Internet porn. And I know some of y'all just say: "Yeah, right!" or: "I've watched porn for years and I'm just fine, brah!" Well, if that's you, or even if it's not, please stick around for the rest of this video, as I share my story and history with porn and how it affected me personally, and I'm also gonna get in some of the brain science of how porn is affecting us and how it can cause tons of sexual dysfunctions."

So here are the videos:

 



 

I'm sorry for kind of taking this topic into another direction. I don't want this to become exclusively a discussion about NoFap. I'm writing about all of this because it's connected with what OP talked about - going back to your "default settings" and having a healthy sex life again.

 

So again, this is not about masturbation and whether it is wrong or not. This is about Internet porn, how it can basically become an addiction and make your life worse.

 

So please, don't continue with the same old comments like: "Lol, you all need to get laid." You know, ironically, that IS just what people need. And you know what's stopping them? Jacking off to a screen in the corner of their room every evening instead of going out, socializing and meeting real chicks.

 

And even if you don't support this whole idea of quitting porn after you've watched the videos above, it might make you stop insulting people who have quit it. This might not be about you, but it may just be about your friend or your cousin or your brother. So please, hear out what the other side has to say.

I hardly ever watch porn tbh, my girl would have a fit if she caught me. She finds it sort of grotesque. :/

 

Anyway, how does one quit porn?

 

- Cold turkey like cigarettes and booze?

 

- Or you cut your nuts off and throw em in your bedroom closet for safe keeping and watch them evolve?

 

Seriously, Internet porn may be hazardous to your health - Masturbate in moderation.

I watch porn mostly for entertainment, rarely for fapping(it's hard to hold three things all at once)...As you may know, I pay for it so I can get full satisfaction...Although I've been thinking about canceling the membership, the new performers that they're hiring are very meh, and they're starting to do less bareback...

I've slowed down drastically in the amount of times daily I used to jerk it. Before my first love I was a 3-5 times a day guy, till the poor f*cker was spitting dust. Moths flying out an sh*t.

 

Then I was in a 5 year lusty relationship an got poonani at least once a day. During bloodmoon, bjs galore.

 

Now I may jerk the old wizard sleeve once a day, sometimes once a week. Really need to f*ck a New girl to get the old one out of my head. Why I do not enjoy a wank like I used to. An just getting older, sighs.

 

Oh yeah OT, I LOVE PORN

Have a very strong determination for certain period of time like 1 months or 2 months and don't watch it. When after some months you feel like their is nothing important going on in your life, you may watch it for chill.

 

Like for a month or two before exams or some important stuff quit watching it and stick to it. Because later on when you will succeed in your important work, you can watch it with happiness and in relaxed mood.

 

IMO, their is no requirement to quit watching it forever. But, only for certain interval it might prove helpful.

 

I hope you understand what I mean to say.

 

Note: I don't know if your sexual life is affected by frequent masturbation's later on when you are married. Like premature ejaculations and sh*t like that. But I don't care about all that because I have decided not to marry. Just enjoy when the time is right.

Nothing wrong with porn. Why settle for less. Females always turn sex into a political issue. Plus there's always risks of false accusations, unwanted pregnancies, or diseases.
