no sex for 10 years, by choice, and I feel like a complete and whole person without the need of a significant other or anything else at all…. I am the temple, and the temple is full and complete.

I’m definitely doing this!! I’ve been watching porn and jacking off on average every day to every other day sometimes more since I was like 13 I’m 18. I’m starting to notice all the symptoms like this post is talking about > http://www.highexistence.com/how-porn-rewires-the-brain-is-porn-bad-for-you/ I definitely need to do this I’m 18 and I can have sex for like 2 hours straight without cumming once with hot chicks like I gotta stop with the porn. Todays my first day well technically I’m on day two since its 1:30 am but this shit sucks! But I keep posting on this everyday if I can. I got this its only 30 days.

I’m on Day 2 after just discovering highexistence.com, and after reading about how over-use of internet porn re-wires your brain. So, I had become addicted to “camming” sites where U watch other people get it on or masturbate, or show off yourself. It was fun, I admit. But (after being in a long-term relationship for 5yrs. in which I had great sex for about 2 and 1/2 yrs., at the beginning, and then not as awesome sex towards the end), I need to give women a try again and overcome my anger at most of them for being “mean” to men (in a word). Also, I discovered that, for the past 2 and 1/2 yrs. since I broke up with my former partner, I jacked off so much that when I had an orgasm, nothing came out, unless I was REALLY turned on by this or that (exhibitionism, being someplace like in the outdoors where I could scream really loudly). So, I’m hoping if I stop porn, I’ll get laid more often (due to increased drive and vibrations), and also feel more productive and get more things done (I would often average 2-3 hrs. of “edging” w/porn-camming). Feeling good about this.

Ok peeps, I’m on board too. I’ve done this before in the past, so I’ve got an idea about the difficulties and the journey. When I was 16 during full adolescence we made a competition out of this with a group of friends to see who could last longer without it. Then a few years later I decided to go a whole summer without it too.

In both cases I managed with different motivations: the first time just pure competitiveness, and managed 61 days, beating everyone by a month; the next time was by a desire of having more sex drive and being more eager to approach girls, and I lasted 49 days.

But in both cases it was real tough most of the time and the only thing that kept me going was crossing off days on a calendar. This however makes you focus too much on the whole situation. Also, I did watch porn now and then.

So now I will attempt the same thing but without counting days or setting a reachable goal, because THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A LIFESTYLE CHANGE.
Just start without looking back.

Tips:
When the urge comes, do pushups, or pull ups instead.
I also noticed that the more activities fill out your day, the less you think about the whole thing. The urge usually comes when you are home alone, with easy internet access. So you can also take a walk outside.

–Day 1–

Ya know, I would totally do this….but like, its not that I enjoy masturbating. I just do it for the end result. So what’s the REAL problem here? That’s right. Communism.

Day 4: Hasn’t been that hard to say no porn. Harder to not stroke it, but successful so far. Have simultaneously started doing The Ice Man’s breathing exercises and cold showers daily, so the combo of those exercises and the porn/stroke ban has meant I have more energy in general and find my tendency to get depressed has lifted.
Last night, a girl tried to get me to hang out (a girl I had a one night stand with couple of months ago), but I was at work – so maybe my non-porn vibes sent a “come f*#%ck me” vibration out to the local female population. I did, however, also send her a facebook request, so that’s probably the real reason.

Earlier on Day 5, I found myself fantasizing about being a porn star, doing kinky stuff I’ve seen on video, and while I restrained myself from stroking, I touched my chest and stuff to try and dissipated the horned up feeling. And I took a cool shower. I did more reading and watching videos via this site and other links and sites on “rebooting,” and realized that fantasizing about porn and fantasizing in general is something I have to stop doing these next 30 days if I want to rewire my brain and “reboot” my sexual functioning and neurological pathways.
Also, I realized in addition to porn addiction, I have become addicted to surfing around the net, exploring many different subjects at once, reading and listening to this and that. I have to limit my amount of time online, and am considering only using internet mostly just in public places so I don’t associate being alone at home with using the internet.

Masturbation drains our comic energy and physical energy as well,watching porn is very harmful for brain because addicated to porn makes you less interested in real sex and controlling that is really hard for a young boy but this is first day ,hope i’ll work out. :)

Everyone has to control their sexual energy but sometimes I think men shouldn’t masturbate but women should. Sorry. Haha it makes us softer and less bitchy, more feminine which is more comfortable to be around I think if you’re a man. Whereas men need the extra energy for power ups and focus, women need to diffuse and and can’t have all this tension making them too hardened. Else they can’t really be receptive to men and everything is fucked up. Ideally people would just have someone to love and fuck always, but in the meantime I think it would help men not to masturbate but for women it would help more to masturbate. Who knows really.

But porn can do a lot of damage from expecting women to be pornstars.

But more women should act like pornstars sometimes. But only for love.

Not every porn star is the same. It’s like having a favorite song. For healthy relationships men and women watch porn together without blaming each other or seeding guilt what’s right or what isn’t when everyone has different preferences and the only way to know them is through communication. It’s not damaging to make love when you’re experienced. It’s actually fucking awesome.

I believe a person has to be a fool to believe he’ll produce anything with no energy. Few things guilt does: Depletes energy and desire, crushes confidence, increases stress levels and if it leads to mental blockage it asks for a release. This whole thread is a sham and dangerous if not taken with a grain of salt. The whole problem comes from focusing on sexual relations rather than all the reasons for connecting with whom we select and attract.

I love discussing porn with my female friends without ego jerking. The sexual tension or frustration sometimes creates dysfunction for both genders. Thing is, if you’re actually a kind and respectful mature person you wouldn’t show any sign of desperation, bitchiness or lack of focus. Guilt, despair and stress lead to problems with our whole well-being, not just our sexual experiences.

You’re saying a kind and respectful person never ever shows signs of those things? I think its healthy to watch porn together but it’s not necessary for a healthy relationship or to figure out preferences. I think porn can be damaging to people’s ideas but experience does change misconceptions.

It damages morality if it’s publicized, but when it’s personal, private, consciously between you and the person you’re exploring your sexuality with it’s when it’s a better connection. Actually healing.

Porn Kills love and respect,
you support human trafficking, child kidnapping ,rape,humiliation and violence when watching porn.Nobody wants to become a pornstar but they are forced or somehow pushed to it.

do I?
I don’t even watch porn. I watched a lot of porn when I was eight though because I found it and it was entrancing. Does that mean I was supporting human trafficking? Not all porn is a result of pressure, but yea people do a lot of things as a result of being detached from love and respect. I think porn supports detachment but it doesn’t create it.

I think his/her message was intended for me. I don’t know what to say, though. Porn isn’t evil or shameful. As a matter of fact a lot of ADULT couples prefer even connecting and greeting the brave sexy couples on what they do, because it helps other couples to make them feel sexy, horny, confident and comfortable with themselves. It definitely matters what you use it for, but there aren’t many mature discussions about it, are there? There are giggling fools and it touches our insecurities.

I think people just have really fucked up value systems. The age restrictions the world has agreed to put upon watching porn isn’t something coincidental. I’m 26 years old, but if I was 15-16 and came to this thread looking for experience I’d learn nothing from it. In fact, if I was 15-16 I would have hated that on the next Valentine’s day, the movie 50 Shades of Grey will probably break world records in the box office. :) Now, though. I love how it pisses people off that millions of women (a lot less men) love the franchise. You just have to grow up first from being an exited bomb of horniness to know how to love and respect. No one is to be blamed they need something interesting in their life and if the most important thing for everyone is to be happy. I think everyone has the right to be and search for it wherever they can as long it benefits people’s health and overall well-being. I mean, shit. Pop music is way more degrading than porn. Where’s the beauty in it? I guess there’s a difference between a popular artist’s nude paintings depicting femininity and animalistic mindlessness.

Now I love the haters of 50 Shades of Grey as well as their hardcore fans. If everyone agreed that their sexual health is actually of importance and that it starts from the mind, everyone would feel glad they’re responsible for their own actions.

Ooooooooooooooooooh.

P.S. Mind stimulation is sometimes preferable.

I think different times of life call for different distributions of sexual energy. There isn’t just one way to have a healthy relationship with it.

(Have to comment on a woman named Jelica saying in her comment below: “Men shouldn’t masturbate”. Really, Jelica? Who asked you? Get a grip! Pun intended!!! LOL).
On Day 10 now. Really had to control myself this morning – had to rub my balls a little ’cause they ached. But didn’t rub to the point of an erection (if I was 17 it’d have gotten me hard, but not at age 45!). Realizing how much I love stroking it and how many hours I “wasted” edging over the course of my life, and especially the last 3 yrs. since living alone with porn available 24hrs.!
I don’t miss the porn much, but I miss stroking, a lot. But I also feel much, much more motivated to find a sex partner. And, I feel like giving women a try again, even though I think American women are very “difficult,” lol. I sure would settle for a blow job from any guy or girl right now!

As I continue this conversation with myself (?), (and, as I wonder why “Tony’s” post above from 2 yrs. and 7 months ago continues to always to be the header of this chat), I am reporting to anyone trying this with me that I fell off the horse, and grabbed my own horse in the wee hours after midnight this morning, under a raging blood-moon eclipse. I was soooo horny, and since it was day 11, I rationalized that the NO PORN for 30 days was more important, to me, than no stroking for 30 days. I’m rewiring my brain to not be addicted to the internet and porn, especially. My dick missed me. 11 days was probably a record for me. So, I’m on day 11 enjoying no porn, and back to day one of no wanking. I figure one wank every week to ten days is probably a healthy goal. How U doing?

Lol broooo!!! Loving the absolutely brutal honesty. You gangster.

Anyway. Back to the business of the ragin hard ons.

Can I ask your goal in all of this?
What is it that you wanna achieve by not spanking the monkey??

I personally am doing ok.. I think MAINLY because I have lost the war of the future.
I am currently focusing on being balanced and PRESENT in the now.. That tends to keep me feeling balanced and not get too over worked.

I do however, in the next couple days wanna masturbate.. Not sure why.. Do you know what, I’ve just cracked it.
I was speaking in the future, and I wasn’t speaking in the present.
That’s the key…. It’s an ego thing…

Like cats or dogs. If you watch them, they don’t wank. They have penises etc, but they just go about their daily business!!
When the time comes, yeah, they fuck like crazy.. But they don’t get caught up in unnecessary desires.

It’s an ego addiction that we’re talking about here. Not porn addiction or sex addiction.
Get out your minddd mann its a prison!!!

I noticed the other day, all this talking about shit is so unnecessary man.
It’s like.. Super unnecessary.
I don’t know why… It just seems unexplainable.

I think there’s a balance between sharing info, how tos and all that, and then just going with the flow and being present..
There’s my mistake though.. I thought. I think about this shit.
I’m pretty much always wrong lol!!

Fuck thinking lool.

Nah but seriously.. When you get involved in all this sexual energy cultivation/balance etc or the perfect spiritual life, you end up with all these breathing practices, all these meditations for each chakra and shit..

When in reality, what you’re looking for is ONE thing that’s gonna give you peace internally. There’s no point having a massive routine everyday of meditations and stuff, it’s gonna get boring and a chore pretty soon.

So if you find one thing, which I have personally, in disidentifying with the ego.. It seems to do all these things at once..
Balances me out, brings synchronicities, calms all the sexual stuff, spreads out energy all over my body, I instinctively heal myself.. Dunno how.. I’m aware of my emotions, so everything just gets dissolved..

It’s like I’m actually conscious, and all those things I previously used to get hung up on are like fuel for the flames of my new fresh way of seeing life!

Jokes.

That’s how I see it anyway. My field of vision.

I’m not trying to quit jacking off as much as I’m trying to quit porn, as well as a general addiction to the internet. Porn addiction has my brain all wrong – so I’m trying to re-boot my brain to the healthier place I was before I got hooked on internet porn.
I’m doing it for my mental health, to reboot my libido, and to happier, in general.
I appreciate your chat ;o)
