So, I made it. And I feel great, but like so many others say, the 90 days just feel like the beginning of my true journey, I feel like I'm climbing a massive mountain; the biggest mountain ever, bigger than any earthly mountain, and I've just now passed the clouds. When I was under the clouds I was just climbing up and trying to reach the clouds, but now that I have passed them I see how big and beautiful the mountain really is, and I'm going to climb it to the freaking top!
The short answer to the question posed in the subject of this article is, “Yes, porn is probably making you bad in bed.”
For about 7 years now I’ve been thinking that the sex apocalypse is coming. And it seems like I’m not the only one who has noticed.

I won’t reiterate much of what I previously wrote [below], but in a nutshell, I was taking the wrong turns in my life for the longest time ever.

It's easy to understand why internet porn poses a significant risk of addiction: it induces a state of hyper-stimulation, provides constant novelty, is highly accessible, costs nothing, and can be used in the privacy of one's home.
