thanks for the very informative video!

I actually made a bet with a few friends a few months ago, about who could abstain from porn for a longer period of time... Well, all of them (including me) went back to watching porn, afer the bet was over (about 4 weeks or so), but it somehow stuck with us that one is better of without it... still we all had relapses but overall I reduced it from 3-5time daily to 1-2weekly and it seems like it is getting easier over time to watch less and less of it, but the urge is still really strong, especially if the last time I got laid is a time back...

does anybody maybe have some tips on how to control the urge (especially when drunk/high, depressed or really, really horny?)

And does anybody know if masturbating (using one's phantasy) is bad too? I mean it obviously would have an effect on the brain, but will it strengthen "porn-independent" erections by strenghtening "neural erotic phantasy circuits" or make it hard to sustain an erection with a female (because one is used to masturbating)?

btw I do rarely have problems with sustaining an erection (unless really drunk/etc), but I had it happen two or three times (I'm in my early twenties btw) and it scared the shit out of me...

Check out the site and read the articles.. Even fantasizing in your head about it can lead to the same effect.. Some people fantasize about porn to get off even when they are with their real life girl friend.. You don't need to be a scientist to know that can be problematic...

Yeah I've noticed that porn is a problem for me when I get off on it without any woman involved.

Your brain becomes detached and has an effect on how your body reacts to being naked or receiving any pleasure. You need to un-wire the shit porn did to your head.

So um are there any articles that are peer reviewed on the site? Or even any that aren't by the admin of the site? Or any that have been submitted to any reputable publication?

C'mon man.


I could start a website and only submit "articles" by me espousing my position. Do you think conclusions that are factual could be drawn from that site?

Anyone who thinks porn is healthy or that it does not or can not become an ENORMOUS problem or addiction on par with any drug is dangerously misinformed.

The science and thousands, probably more like millions of case studies say otherwise. It is extremely unhealthy.

Why not look for yourself, if you are actually interested in anything other than naysaying. Do you have an argument with the science, or is this just the standard internet fare. NOT PEER REVIEWED *SQWAWK!* Thosands upon thousands of guys on the forums using the information on that site and finding help and relief from a horrible addiction is not enough for me to acknowledge someone might be on to something because THE PEER REVEIWS*SQWAK!*

The porn issue is certainly debatable; however that site is bad science or not really science.

I know this is not going to get a lot of support on this site, but the way porn affects the brain, no, is NOT healthy.

Have a look at the site before launching into knee-jerk reactions. I'm not interested in engaging folks that just want to shit all over something that have not taken a lick of time to look into.

Not saying that's you, imhungry, I can just see what's coming.

Genuinely curious here. Because if you'll read the forums, you will discover a LOT of people with the exact problem the site addresses, and a LOT of people who are cured of this problem by following the recommendations laid out on that self-same site.

I looked. I saw no content by anyone other than the site host and personal anecdotes.
Horrible addiction to what? Orgasms?

Let me do a personal case study. When I was in high school I could get hard when the wind blew. After years and years of sex and masturbation well it takes more than the wind but dammit I can still get hard. Thus porn has not hurt me. Thus its not bad.

Is that science? If I get a thousand similar anecdotes does it make it fact?

I'd say that its attributing causality when there is nothing but dubious correlation. Since the site uses evolution in the subtitle we were evolved with the intention of fucking as much as possible. So perhaps its something else that is wrong that is lowering their sex drive or ability. If the nixxing porn helps them to eliminate their ED great. Probably some test shots would do the trick too.

Let's speak plainly. Let's say there are not a thousand, but THOUSANDS upon thousands of guys with these symptoms: erectile dysfunction that typically occurs only after the initiation of sex, who cannot achieve orgasm with another human without extraordinary stimulation, who cannot achieve orgasm through vaginal sex at all, who quickly lose erection after initiation of sex, who masturbate for literally HOURS on end day after day, or for multiple times, whose addiction to porn/masturbation/sex has begun to negatively affect their lives, who have literally lost their families because of this addiction, who have altogether lost interest in sex with real living humans because porn is so much more stimulating and they have become so hyperstimulated that real sex has lost any effect it once had upon them. Who are becoming ever more disassociated from humanity.

And then you give them an answer. You show this LARGE group of mostly (but not all) males that ceasing looking at porn and masturbating can cure them of this problem, give them their lives back, and vastly improve the quality of their self-esteem along with all of the relationships in their lives.

But the science is bad. So fuck all that.

Do I have that right?
