@sumtinprophetic, @luigi, I understand your skepticism but look at the TED talk video that Martijn has posted on the previous page 4 days ago, and he basically explains how the porn addiction changes certain circuits in your brain.
So he explains how it is a physical process and can therefore never be a placebo.

But I honestly do not know how this challenge affects my real life, because there are so much other things that happened in the last 63 days (!!!) (I honestly cannot believe it is so long ago since I started this challenge and how it is possible that I have survived) that it is impossible to say whether certain changes are due to this, or due to something else.

However, I do see that I am less ‘obsessed’ with porn/sex than before, which is a good thing. I also have the idea that I look differently at women, less as a sex object so to say, but this could be a ‘placebo’ so to say.

Hey guys, I have been thinking about this for a while because I have a tenancy to build my day around masturbating. I feel like it takes up too much time and effort for me anyway. I have a girlfriend but I still find the need to do it, even most days, sometimes twice a day. Even if I have sex I still feel the need to do it later! Am I the only one that does this?
Anyway time for a change, I haven’t done it today, and after reading this, today is day one complete, so I will be back for more info and status updates tomorrow, stay strong my brothers! any sisters in here? actually don’t tell me, that will only make me think about women doing it!

@filip, I am not skeptic about its affects at all. Just like you said, I don’t know if it due to the challenge or due to the other 10 challenges I am doing…but shit is changing. Read my long list a page back or so. These are all genuine changes, some MAY be placebo but most are genuine. Either way, it’s been more than 10 weeks for me and I haven’t looked back.

@sumtinprophetic, I went on that site for hours the first time this challenge was started and most of the stuff I read was completely relatable. I have never been happier to quit porn..I was really addicted back then.

@filip,
“So he explains how it is a physical process and can therefore never be a placebo.”

This is not a logical statement.

@ijesuschrist, What I mean is that a physical change cannot be classified as a placebo, since it is a measurable change. For example, if I lose my arm, I cannot say that this is a placebo. Hope you get my point.

@filip, Right – but the fact that you feel so much healthier and happier since you lost your arm may be placebo.

Day 1 Complete

1. That was hard, I usually do it right before bed and I was rather restless in bed until I fell asleep.

2. Today is worse. I have hours of free time today and absolutely nothing to do. Whenever I get the urge I go pump so iron. I might end up ripped by the end of this.

Can you guys give me an opinion on this one, girls, you are gratefully invited too –

You see, the main reason I joined this challenge is because I want to last longer in bed. I don’t really need to watch porn, or have an addiction to porn, but mainly I masturbate to get to orgasm as soon as possible,

Would it make sense to you to masturbate without porn at all, simply trying to learn to last longer using different methods. Im not going to get into super graphic detail here, but guys, you may have heard about masturbation technique to last longer. Would this have the same negative effect that watching porn and objecting women in videos to reach orgasm as quickly as possible. Convince me your thoughts on this. I am not giving up, it’s just on my mind.

Day 4 of my 90 day challenge:
Getting easier, I just work out whenever I get the urge. Really wishing I had a girlfriend right now though.

@TheisThatway, Go to http://www.yourbrainonporn.com You will find a lot of similar problems that were fixed by abstaining from porn masturbation

As for the challenge, I am on day 75…It’s much harder without a girlfriend but it motivates me to get out there and meet new girls so I don’t mind it.

@TheisThatway, I don’t watch porn anymore, still pull dick every now and then (cut down incredibly).

Sex is SO. MUCH. BETTER. I don’t last any longer, but I finish every time now. Before I’d get bored of it (directly related to porn). cut off the porn and now I realize why sex is good.

I think porn makes you unrealistically think you should last longer. In porn they do multiple shots all the time cause the guys can’t really last for an hour. they can’t last for 30 minutes. Some can, and cool – its probably not cause they are so manly, but because it really just doesn’t feel that great. Don’t get it in your head you have to last a certain amount of time, just do what feels good, and savor it. To be honest I have no idea how long I last, I really don’t. I JUST GET LOST IN THE LOVE, MAN.

@ijesuschrist, @luigi,
The main reason I want to last longer isn’t neccesarily that I feel like I have to, but I just feel like it would be awesome to give multiple orgasms, that’s all. But yeah, I will check out that site. Today is day 5 for me.
