Day 94 and still without porn, however masturbated two days ago for the first time and damn it felt good (my challenge was 90 days without porn and masturbation). I do not know why I began watching porn in the first place, cause it is so much better without it! Furthermore my general libido has definitely increased, I make more contact with (strange) girls and I definitely get more smiles from passing women/girls, but that can also be due to the fact that I smile more.

@filipek, Good job Filip. I’m at 104 days right now and the only way I know that, even though I usually lose count, is because when this thread was started 101 days ago I hadn’t masturbated for 3 days already.

Agreed on the libido increase, it’s very high right now. Flirting and talking are easy in situations where I am with girls because my initial intention is just basic human contact before sexual pleasure. Ironically enough, I get more sex now when sex isn’t my initial intention than when it was before.

@tridan44, good job!!

Hey all, I started the challenge on the may 24th after reading up on the same subject on other site and also went through YBOP. I used to fap almost everyday, sometimes more than once a day.

I can imagine having similar results to what luigi has been reporting here, which by the way is very inspirational.

It’s hard right now, but after the first week, I’m hoping it’ll get a lot easier.

Wish me luck!

why are people doing this? Is there a reason you want to keep your sperm inside you and build up testosterone? Are you all having a hard time having a baby and your trying this to see if it can help? Are you all impotent and trying this to see if it will help? or are you just challenging yourselves for fun? im curious

@filipek, yah you’re right… it’s all in the mind… hehehehe….

@msaracino, we’re not impotent… lol… i dont know about other people but my reason for doing this is because i want to stop my my addiction to pornography and masturbation… for almost 8 years (im only 20) ive been watching pornography almost every chance that i can have and masturbate everyday not once but many times (sometimes more than 5x a day)… that’s the reason why im doing this… ^_^

@msillegality, female honesty is rare these days and men are fucking stupid. Better work on your ambitions of being an awesome teacher who’ll teach kids how not all addictions are bad for your health, because (as I said before) masturbation is recommended by doctors.

The problem doesn’t lie in the addiction to porn. Am I addicted to breathing?

I gotta be honest. Not everyone who masturbates is a loser. If you’re feeling bad about masturbating, then you’re really not okay with yourself. Seriously.

Dumbasses. No one is going to tell you a secret about human nature. It’s not even slightly bad that people masturbate. But the whole fucking thread is telling you otherwise, well I am pretty sure that if you actually feel absolutely great with who you are, you won’t have problems or addictions. :)

Truth has been spoken!

Go fuck yourselves! With love.

@beyond Thank you for redeeming the other imbeciles. I see your point, but I call it an addiction because it controls (controlled?) me to the point…I don’t even know what. I’m stopping (day 4 now (yes I’ve had that many resets)) because I need to be liberated.

As an aside would one count masturbation as a result of sexting to cause a reset?

@msillegality, It’s not important that you masturbate or not. At all. If someone seeks your attention, they want your attention – therefore people are fucking stuck between the confusion are they making a good impression or not – That’s the real problem. The whole “what I do with my body” discussion is just a comparison between idiots who have nothing else to do, but point out what are they doing with their own fucking bodies. Sounds like a waste of time to me.

You can flirt, have a good time, whatever you like. :) Or you can use your sexual energy and hormones to do something productive. You can even look at yourself in 3rd person view and see what exactly is happening. It’s not even a challenge. It’s leading you nowhere!

There are no fucking resets. It’s just this stupid fucking thread everyone got in their heads and I’m thinking the whole time: “Are you fucking kidding me?”

Why not do something else with your time than thinking you have a problem?

It surely is taboo for a lot of folks, which is weird because no one is going to fucking care about that. :)

@beyond, you certainly do come across as open minded.

@beyond, Sasho, I usually value your opinions because you are an intelligent, open minded man…usually, but seriously dude why are you so intent on proving everyone wrong here?

If someone wants to better themselves in any way, why go against them and tell them it’s bullshit because it isn’t a problem in the first place? You may be right that it SHOULDN’T be a problem but some people are actually addicted to porn…Believe it or not. I know old dudes who spend a lot of money on porn..MONEY, like they don’t fucking know that there is actually free porn on the internet. They actually spend paychecks on it. People like that enter this cycle, this habit of masturbating to porn that they won’t ever go out and find real women. It is a problem whether you like it or not. Just take it for what it is and try to be supportive of the ones trying to get rid of it. let them be.

No one on here ever said masturbation was bad in any way, no one is against masturbating. This was a simple challenge. Go 30 days without masturbating to porn..preserving sexual energy and see what happens. It’s a challenge, like any other challenge…take human desire and eliminate it to see if the person can benefit or not without it. It’s like any challenge out there…surviving in the woods with nothing, climbing mount everest. Let the dam people try going 30 days without watching porn dammit.

Doctors recommendations are irrelevant here. A doctor may recommend eating chicken but a vegetarian won’t give a shit.

@luigiblue, thumbs up!!!! hehehehe…

back to day 1 again… but im not disappointed because ive learn something form it… heheheh…

@msillegality, do whatever you want to do.. its your own life… if you think there something wrong in you… you have all the rights to make something to solve that problem… if you think you have addiction to porn well good for you because you’re doing something to correct and improve your life… you are the one who is responsible to yourself and whatever action you will do you are the one who will be affected… so if you think this challenge will make improvements to your life then go…. aja!!!

@luigiblue, “well I am pretty sure that if you actually feel absolutely great with who you are, you won’t have problems or addictions. :)” – I actually said that.

I don’t think I need to repeat myself anymore. :) It cannot be explained in a simpler way.

See how supportive I am. It’s unbelievable.

I somehow stumbled upon this book last night.
http://www.holybooks.com/wp-content/uploads/Taoist-Secrets-of-Love-Cultivating-Male-Sexual-Energy.pdf

It’s from 1984, so it’s kind of old, but for some reason I just started reading it. Even though I just randomly found it on the internet, it easily could be one of the most insightful things I’ve read. I’m not really one for religions or anything like that, but I definitely recommend looking at it if you want to take this to the next level. Just take it all with a grain of salt though and don’t get attached to the concepts, and only do what feels comfortable. I never really saw any benefit in getting blue balls or resisting sexual feelings. But there are more productive ways to use these than just releasing the feeling through jerking it

besides doing more workouts and heavier weights, can you guys share your methods to kill the urge while you are on this quest? if it helps, I’m not into going to the gym and such though I’ve been doing pushups to distract my desire to give in.

Can’t believe this is only day 6.
