Age 19 - Sexual confidence back, NoFap definitely works.

NoFap Benefits After 2 Years: What Has Changed?! By RSDMax

NoFap Benefits After 2 Years: What Has Changed?! (THE TRUTH)

By - RSDMax

Age 21 - From a mumbling, stuttering outcast to someone people are glad to have around

WOOO THE HYPE IS REAL LETS GOOOO. I went from being the third wheel/ the outcast, hating myself to Day 90 full of energy. People are glad to have me around. My eyes went from dull to beautiful, full of life. My hair went from sick-looking brown to high detail looking blackish. I am blonde btw just very dirty blond.

Age 23 - PIED about cured: Morning wood is consistent, I am more relaxed, my anxiety is very low, and I overall feel more confident

My experience with porn began when I was young like many of you, and I masturbated aggressively for many years starting around age 10. At that age I suspect I was too young for it to affect me badly, and I had no knowledge of PIED or anything of that nature. ED was not something I was at all concerned about. Around age 18-19 I was having very successful sex with more than one partner, even though I did use porn fairly regularly.

Age 15 - Increased confidence, easier to be myself

I'm 15 and when I got really into PMO I started to jack off to trans porn and eventually got into gay porn. That was the breaking point which made me realize that I have to be serious about Nofap. I also noticed that I acted really strange around girls and I just had a creepy vibe.

The Dual Control Model - The Role Of Sexual Inhibition & Excitation In Sexual Arousal And Behavior (2007)

COMMENTS: A recent re-discovery. The first paper to report porn-induced ED and porn-induced low libido. In an experiment employing video porn, 50% of the young men couldn't become aroused or achieve erections with porn (average age was 29). The shocked researchers discovered that the men's erectile dysfunction was "related to high levels of exposure to and experience with sexually explicit materials." The limp men had spent a whole of lot of time in bars and bathhouses where porn was "omnipresent," and continuously playing. The men explained that "high exposure to erotica seemed to have resulted in a lower responsivity to "vanilla sex" erotica and an increased need for novelty and variation.

Age 29 - Married, PIED all but gone, best sex ever

I'm 29, and I've known about NoFap for a few years. But I didn't have any real negative effects from PMO for years, but around a year or so ago performance anxiety  about sex crept in, and for a long while I had ED. It was hell for my wife and I. After speaking to a therapist i realised the issue and worked to resolve it. So far so good!

Fantastic benefits, but nasty withdrawal still haunting me

I'm 167 days into this thing and I want people who are similar to me to know the reality of their situation. I started very early on in my life, escalating to fetishes by the middle of high school. I continued on like that until sometime during my freshman year of college, when I discovered this site. Then I spent the next 5 years trying to quit the damn habit.
