Men have become so much desensitized by porn that prostitutes now promote NoFap to attract more regular customers.

A friend of mine was a 25 years old virgin who decided have sex with a callgirl on his birthday (I know this is a bad decision, but it's his life and that's a whole another theme). So obviously he had some erection problems in the beginning of the act when putting the condom and the callgirl (which was a high paid escort) told him to stop watching porn and abstain from masturbation for a long period of time. This friend is a shy guy with social difficulties and he watches a lot of porn. He told me what happened, because i have always tried to make him start NoFap and what the callgirl told him was really interesting.

I am not trying to promote going to prostitutes. I am actually strongly against it. Just wanted to share this interesting story with you guys.
