So all I’ve read is the negative effects of porn… Where’s everyone with the great things about it!? I’ll start it off…

It’s great if you and your partner are into watching it together and using it for some fun ideas :)

@sumptinprophetic

the only thing porn is good for (pretty much) is learning how to give a bj

Day 8, not even tempted at this point really.

Although, I did have sex, is that against the rules?

Those negative effects I read on YBOP were, scary to say the least. Day 1 starting now.

Day 3. Only thing I can report till now is the surprising number of times I almost instinctively reached for that site and mentally prepared myself only for my logic to put the stop. Yep, addiction alright. Last night I already had intense dreams (yes, multiple) about the challenge.

Haven’t you guys ever heard of prostate cancer. You gotta clean that shit out reguarly. I can understand forced abstinence, or for the laymen, not getting any but for fuck sakes snap one off fellas you’ll feel better. All the time you were spending looking at porn you’re now spending thinking about not looking at porn and counting the days. As with anything moderation is the key.

When you’re 70 you’ll be standing her on her head and tucking it in with your finger. So fuck whatever it is you think you are gaining and go out and get laid or when all else fails give it a yank.

“You gotta clean that shit out reguarly” hahaha that is the most retarded thing i ever heard. Ejaclation is obvisouyl the only thing that causes the cancer. Stress, overuse, these are the proven causes of cancer. Get real, mate…

You can have ALL the sex you want. This challenge isn’t about sex. It is about ridding yourself of the unnatural dependance of porn to get off.

@rusty

Your body does that for you. It’s the purpose of wet dreams.

Rusty, you are missing the real point here, did you even read some articles on yourbrainonporn, or just came with a judgement without knowing what you are talking about?

Like some people before me mentioned already, it is not about giving up on masturbating, it is on eliminating the connections in your brain between porn and masturbation, which makes it unhealthy. Furthermore it is about addiction, and like you perfectly mention yourself: moderation is the key, with anything.

You are probably right about the prevention of prostate cancer though, it is what I heard as well, and although I am not a medician, the arguments seem valid to me.

Am starting to worry about erectile dysfunction though…. kinda like an unflexed muscle, right?

Kaysea do not worry! It seems you are just at the beginning, and it is possible that you will experience even more difficult periods! Do not give up, because in order to reach the top, you have to reach the bottom first. Nobody said it would be easy, just believe in yourself and you will definitely get there!

I can’t understand the prostate cancer argument when wet dreams actually cause ejaculation and “cleaning out” when too much sperm has been stored.

@ Rusty. Semen gets released whether you use it or not. Masturbation isn’t necessary to help cleanse you from prostate cancer.

Once again people are missing the point of this thread. It isn’t to abstain from sex, it isn’t to retain semen, it’s to remove yourself from the dependence and addiction of porn. You can have all the sex you want, the challenge isn’t about sex.

@ Dimitris. Thank you for finally pointing that out! I had always learned in school that the point of wet dreams was to clear out the old sperm in case you were not masturbating. So when you go a long time without masturbating, you will start having wet dreams every once in a while.

Well, I’ve been in and out of this challenge and realized that I’m now 5 days in by accident.

Guess I’ll keep going! I’m thinking that since it’s not the masturbation that’s bad (I still don’t believe that saving all that semen in you is a good thing) I’m going to go on the “No porn” and keep the masturbation.

Just a question: why is this thread, and every other one I have read like it, no porn AND no masturbation? Seems to me that masturbation without porn is an entirely different beast. Maybe allowing masturbation without porn would make the whole thing easier and more sustainable?

And yes, masturbation without porn is practiced by pre-internet people and many other species. It can be done.

saw this thread way back didnt have an account decided to give it ago well what do you know its been 4 weeks since i stopped masturbating and to be honest i have more energy and more of a sense of purpose. I now actually have motivation to go for girls before i didn’t actually care about all the girls i was meeting in the day to day world and was depressed that i wasn’t finding anyone i liked and well it really helped as, i experienced the feeling of having a crush on someone for the first time in 2 years to be exact. ((Now im not saying not masturbating is the only factor in this scenario but i think it definitely played a part and maybe helped other things in my life to come out positively and as a result of that leading to more happiness giving me more energy . I am atm extremely motivated as well as i have to channel my sexual energy somewhere just thought i would share

It’s been a week. It hasn’t been that hard to abstain from porn-masturbation-orgasms. In fact I have found it almost troublesomely easy.

4 weeks in. 30 day challenge complete. Not stopping though, I’m gonna keep it up for as long as it seems right. The world is a beautiful place. Abstaining from masturbating put a fire under my ass to go out there and find something real. The human body doesn’t know the difference between masturbation and actual sex, therefore when you masturbate your body no longer needs to go out and find a mate for a while. It thinks it has done its job and planted its seed. Without Masturbation I have been able to go out into the real world and meet real women and as a result I met an amazing girl that I plan on reserving all this sexual energy for.

Wow, I can’t believe addiction has such an impact on your brain! Porn, video games, drugs, the internet…. I indulge in constantly. Thought it was called being introverted. I’m stoppin cold turkey, starting tomorrow like the rest of you!
