Porn is a bad habit. Like any habit it can be eliminated. To be fair, I didn’t have an upbringing like most guys in this generation. My household was always lagging from a technology standpoint. I rarely played video games.
An early fixation with pornography can damage teenagers’ lives for years to come, experts say
Teenagers were ogling breasts long before the internet was created. But there are now so many images to be gawped at – many of them much more accessible than ever before – that graphic pornography is becoming a normal part of life for children as young as 11.
I created this reddit account two years ago today in order join nofap. Back then we were almost to the 5000 fapstronauts mark. Since then I've watched this sub grow to almost 120,000 people. That is incredible. More incredible, to me, is the growth I've accomplished in these two years.
Virtual reality sex and sex simulators are upcoming technology that may be readily available for consumers in the near future. Pretty crazy. In this episode of the YBR show, the gang talks about these advancements in technology and how things like simulators and virtual reality devices may be even more detrimental and negative for its users.
I started watching porn around the age of 10 and fapping around the age of 14. It got up to 2-3 times a day for the last 4 years until I found this sub and decided to quit. When I first found Nofap in early Feb I thought this could be the cause of all my problems. I failed the first 3-4 times until Feb 20th the last time I fapped or watched porn.
COMMENTS: Published in JAMA Psychiatry (May, 2014), this was the first brain-scan study on porn users. Researchers found several brain changes, and those changes were correlated with the amount of porn was consumed. The subjects were moderate porn users, not classified as addicted. In this study, experts at Germany's Max Planck Institute found:
Well it's been a long road like 2.5 years. I started young probably around 11 or 12 and used to watch and masturbate to porn at least twice a day for a long time. I didn't experience any ED tho until college.
It's been a year since I did the dirty. Stopping was fiendish. Six years of daily dipping into the naughtybox, it was like being unplugged from the matrix - everything was shattered and I found myself raw, naked, shocked and covered in white sticky crap. It took months for my brain to recover. I felt like shit.
I'm a 39 year old male, and have been on and off the NoFap train for about a year. Longest streak 55 days. But also had some weeks/months where I'd completely relapsed. Currently at 40 days, though this time (thankfully and unapologetically) it hasn't been on hard mode.
I spent about two yrs in denial before this streak. I lost my v-card on day 70. Suffered from PIED since I could remember (I'm 23 M). What was worse than the PIED is the desensitization to the world. I found it hard at time to enjoy anything.
I was facing horrible social anxiety, terrible fear, weak when I was PMO' ing. Plus I was getting addicted to shemale porn. Now after 6months of nopmo with several relapses I thing gay porn is not my taste.. I feel as strong as sun.. STAY STRONG bros...
