Today is my 6th day, and so far everything is going okey. However, I don’t think I can be qualified as a heavy porn watcher and/or heavy ‘masturbator’ when I read that some people used to masturbate multiple times a day.

I think I have been watching porn since I was 13 (I am 23 at the moment) and after discovering highexistence and YBOP 5 days ago, I can’t believe that I have never seen myself as being addicted to porn, even though it was so obvious! I never masturbated without watching porn, only on holidays where I had no acces to my own laptop/computer..

All other addictions which I have experienced (cigarets, drugs) were so obvious (I quit smoking cigarets in August 2010 after smoking a package or more per day in the last 5 years), but it never came into my mind that I could be addicted to porn! Once I found out about YBOP and after reading some articles and watching some video’s, I immediately decided that porn will be banned from my live FOREVER!

However, in the last 6 days, while being conscious of it, I noticed how often I think about porn, how often I SEE porn in things which aren’t porn and how much I am brainwashed by this addiction… For example: today I had a massage, and all I could think of was the massage porn video’s I have been watching throughout the years… How crazy is that? While I know that what I see in movies on the television is fiction, I have convinced myself, unconsciously, that what I have seen in porn could be happening to me in real life as well…
SO even though I used to masturbate approximately 4 or 5 times a week, and sometimes even weeks that I didn’t masturbate at all when I was very busy, I think that my porn addiction is as strong as the people who used to masturbate multiple times a day… 10 years of porn, unbelievable…

So during the last 6 days I have had many (conscious) stimuli which built the urge to masturbate or just have a look on the world wide pornweb to see what new is going on, and to what I could masturbate this time.. Fortunately I know that it’s ALL IN THE BRAIN (!) and therefore I could control myself… I quit smoking, so I can’t quit PORN?? Who am I kidding?

I don’t say that I am quitting masturbating, definitely not, but porn for sure. HOwever, I won’t masturbate for 30 days (so 24) for sure, and after that we will see…

I haven’t experienced any morning erections yet, and I only noticed that I haven’t had them, since I watched that I actually haven’t had them… I haven’t had a wet dream in many years, but I used to have massive morning erections every morning, so I hope that they will start coming back in the next 24 days, but we will see…

For the people who use excuses of why they can’t stop watching porn, or why they can’t stop masturbating or whatever, I got one piece of advice: you got everything in your own hand, YOU are responsible for YOUR decisions and NOBODY else…. Remember this, YOU CHOOSE LIFE! Whether you think you have to masturbate because you are ill or because your boyfriend/girlfriend will cheat on you, or whatever the reason may be: it’s not important, it is an excuse… We always use excuses when a big, difficult change is coming ahead, and it’s logical! I Don’t blame anybody, been there, done that, just reminding you guys that you are the boss of your life, nobody else…. You choose happiness, you choose to watch porn, you choose to masturbate, you choose to smoke, you choose to use drugs, you choose life……

That’s it, I will be keeping you guys posted, because I think I have a long way to go (10 years of porn isn’t something that will ‘get out of my mind’ in 30 days) but I am faithful and I will definitely not quit…

Good luck to everybody who is currently in the way of, and to the people who will be :)

Ok so this is my day 12
All of you that can’t help looking at porn on the internet READ THIS!
When I started this I installed a parental control app. on my computer :) It sounds funny but it really helps. Yes I am the one with the password for it…but everytime I type in a porn site or similar..the app blocks it. I could just type in my password and still go watch porn but I don’t because it is a good reminder not to do it.

good luck to everyone

Ugh, day 7 already. The weekend went by pretty fast, but the week is slowing me down again, which just makes things harder. I’ve been reading a lot, but I don’t really know how I’m gonna go three more weeks of this shit. But my goal is not only to go 30 days but to go 30 days with no restarts. It’s so difficult not to give in.

Why would you not want to masturbate?

Yesterday was prob the toughest day for this, but also had an anazing experience for the balance.
Went for a workout to kill the urge, met a nice girl started talking , conversations were good,always have confidence , exhanged numbers.
Later i gave her a call, we talked and talked and suddenly one thing lead to another and we ended up having , some nasty phone sex.
Some great discoveries from it were that, no porn was involved in this, i did not ejaculate , but i guess inejaculated where i felt refreshed, energized rather than the usual effect after ejaculation, of feeling empty.
The most interesting thing was i never wanted to ejaculate during all of it.
But i bet she ended up having multiple O”s. Lol

You feel empty after masturbation? I feel like I stumbled into some Christian support group for dirty sinners who do the one handed tango.

How have you honestly convinced yourself that ejaculation is a bad thing?

Chris mate, empty in more ways than one where for me it always used to be an incomplete feeling of not having sex but just tiggering the pleasure centers of the brain with stimulation to release it in the form of ejaculation,
Prob just like when u eat lots of junk the pleasure centers light up for a bit due to overstimulation, thats how i feel when i look back now.
Ejaculation is not bad at all, in fact it is considered the essence or life force , which i feel now should not be wasted over unproductive stimulus and best left to beautiful real life experiences.
Hope that helps

I can intellectually understand what your saying, but I can’t agree with it.

I think its a very productive stimuli, great for relaxation, relieving stress, and it just feels good.

What is sex besides mutual masturbation? Especially if your NOT trying to get someone preggers. Is it not real life if you use a condom?

Not disagreeing with your prohibition. Just trying to tear apart your reasoning so we both can have a better understanding of it.

Excellent thoughts chris, i used to feel the same way its crazy how the brain will always revolt anything that gives it pleasure.
Sex is amazing and prob sexual energy is the most powerful amongst us all, but the whole point is experimenting and not getting stuck to just one thought or belief, i have been bating and kumming since i was 11, where i started ejaculating at 12, so all these years when i look back now there many ways you can harnes that sexual energy ejaculation can be one way, but orgasm and ejaculation are not the same thing, you mention mutual masterbation it can be great but not necessary always should result it ejaculation, am enjoying the process of inejaculation where i divert tge energy inside me rather than outside, the same during mutual masterbation you and the partner can feel as single unit and flow that sexual energy.
Its all about trying and conquering your beliefs mate, you gotta give it a go experience the whole feeling and then form opinions i think

I completely disagree. Energy from fusion beats the few hundred calories burned during sex any day.

I would try giving up masturbation monk, however for me I experience the exact opposite of what you experience. I don’t feel empty, I fill complete. Like making a good meal, lifting weights, finishing a long walk, or taking a good shit.

Diverting sexual energies internally is something I do when I have a hard on in socially inappropriate situations. It seems more like repressing your natural urges rather than expressing them.

It feels like this is just one of those things Ill never be able to grasp. Ill wank one out for all of your behalf. Keep up the good work!

Chris, I think you are missing the point here.. It’s about addictions, whether it’s porn addiction or cigarette addiction: an addiction is something bad….

I don’t plan on quitting masturbating at all, I just want to experience how it is to be abstinent from masturbating for 30 straight days, for once in my life since more than 10 years!

Furthermore, I think the main issue here is the porn addiction and not the masturbating per se. It’s the connection between masturbating and porn, and the fact that a lot of us can’t or don’t masturbate without porn at all..

I totally agree with you that masturbating (or having sex) is a healthy way of relieving your (sexual) energy, and I don’t think there is something bad with those, in contrary! I think we, as human beings, are gifted with the fact that we have hands with which we can masturbate, in contrary to animals who can’t…

Hope you do get my point and have a great day

Thanks Filip;

If your referring to porn addiction I do understand why you’d give it up for 30 days. I’ve actually known of a few people who ended up with a…problem.

Personally I think the best porn site is your imagination. In fact, I think I’m gonna log off HE for the night and go on a date with Jessica Alba.

Night all.

You just hit on the major problem for myself, and I can only assume from a number of posts that other folks agree, being that porn has become so attached to masturbation that the imagination just does not cut it anymore. I personally require porn to get myself off, and the feeling of remorse after is something that should not be attached to what is supposed to be a pleasurable experience.

Hence, just like various other 7-day, 30-day experiments floating around on here, why not just see what changes when you eliminate something that has been an unquestioned part of your life for years (20 years for myself)?

While I agree that masturbation per se is not “bad”, one cannot have a 20 year addiction/obsession without there being some bad elements that become attached to it. So its time to tear it down and re-examine the entire situation.

i managed to hold it for 10 days. 10th day/today really really challanged me i mean usually when i come back to home after college i usually get sleepy and nap for an hour or two. but today the urge to do it was incredible i mean it was like riding a bull, i tried push ups it delayed it, tried (completely) cold showering for 3-4mins for twice! it delayed the effects but i couldnt do push ups or cold showers any and i did it twice. But my usual routine was 2-3days so its still a big improvement. And strangely i am not demotivated it is a real tough challenge so i failed but will fail better. And i think doing this helps on social anxiety. And one of the other thing is people started to say your voice got ‘bolder’/bassy

And i think if we somehow improve and tame our ‘selves’ to manage this horniness/energy/this temper of the bull; we can direct it into something we want to achieve like an energy we need. that is just a guess though

Yourbrain on porn was prob, picked up by the MUltibillion dollar porno industry and blocked to R.I.P even the recession could not dare to touch the porno industry
what could a mere educational website do.
