Wait, wait, wait: Before you light your Internet on fire, we don't mean we are anti actual masturbation. No one loves you quite like yourself, of course. But we do think that there is an interesting point to be examined in the "anti-masturbation movement," which is currently being discussed by websites such as Reddit or Andrew Sullivan.

Pornography in relationships, the good, the bad, the nasty. Our guests, Gary Wilson, of Your Brain on Porn and Great Porn Experiment TEDx Talk, and Kenya K. Stevens, of JuJu Mama Academy share great info. No one, from grandchildren to grandparents should miss this show!
... Reading this and watching this riveting Tedx talk on the impact of online porn on young male brains – essentially numbing them to actual sex with real human beings and creating an epidemic of young men with floppy dicks (I refuse to use the term “erectile dysfunction” when simpler English can do) – has woken me up a bit.
I have been participating in nofap for a while now and I believe it is time to unleash my story to you all in the hope that you will continue to support me and perhaps shed some light on my past. I should say initially that I am now doing extremely well, have a girlfriend, lost weight, got better grades and have pretty much turned my life around.
2012-01-11 - Okay, where do I begin? I first came across yourbrainonporn.com last July. Reading through many of the posts, I realized that many of the things I feared personally seem to be related to the problem of excessive porn use. I often felt I had problems with women, and felt I was unable to connect with them.
December 26, 2012 -I've been looking at porn as long as I can remember. I've been feeling guilty about it just as long. I felt shitty about it at first because of religious reasons, but as porn started to affect other parts of my life, I started to feel shitty about it all-around.
I am proud to say that I have completed the journey of the 90 day reboot. Through this journey, the success stories posted here have aided me in my battle against this cursed addiction. Therefore, I feel it is only right that I provide and contribute my experience as well. I hope my story can help those of you struggling to rid yourselves of this addiction and finally sever the chains of PMO.
I feel I've got everything nofap has to offer. I find no reason to carry on the nofap challenge, as the main issue for me has always been the porn, not the masturbation itself. So, I masturbated yesterday. I didn't watch porn, didn't think of porn while doing it, and I will never start jerking off to porn again.
