Age 19 – No longer a kissless virgin

 If I was to go back to the beginning of the summer and tell myself that by the end of it I would no longer be a kissless beta virgin who is dating the girl he has been dreaming of for the past 2 years, I would never in a million years believe it, but that is the reality I am living right now and it's because of NoFap.

Age 24 - PIED cured after 90 days - But I've since relapsed and am having PIED again.

Like many of you, I found this subreddit after experiencing the embarrassing feeling of not being able to "get it up" at a young age. Erectile dysfunction sucks - simple as that. However, I have great news: Porn Induced Erectile Dysfunction is 100% curable. On Reddit, we hear about new breakthroughs in science to help cure or treat diseases of all kinds. We don't need to wait for any new breakthroughs; the treatment and cure already exists. Don't look at porn, and your PIED will get better.

Age 16 – Social anxiety gone, I wake up feeling excited for the day, no longer depressed

I'll be at 180 days soon, very soon. It's crazy to think about actually, seems like just recently I was getting excited about getting close to 90. I know what most of you are thinking: "Wow you have a nice streak." "What superpowers did you get." "Have you gotten laid?" "What's different?"

"Porn and the Threat to Virility" (TIME)

In case you missed this TIME cover story about porn-induced sexual dysfunctions, it is no longer behind a paywall. Read it here.


Mom, don't watch this please. NoFap is amazing! I know it.

Age 26 - Had PIED, now I'm fucking like it is a sport in the Olympics

I started nofap this time around with the intention of totally obliterating PMO from my life. Admittedly, I have fapped 4 times in the past 75 days, but it seems as if I have conquered my ED problem...because all of the desire I had for porn has shifted to the girl I am intimate with currently.

Age 19 - I started Nofap as a sceptic, 10 days in no longer doubted I had a problem and now at 50 am so thankful I found nofap.

19 male PMO daily+ for 4 years ish. Day 50 urges subsided barely on my mind except for one big attempt by my brain every few days to get me to relapse. Productivity steadily increased. Now keep a time journal which I write in every few hours detail in what I've done want to do since last entry and before next.

Is excessive sexual behaviour an addictive disorder? (2017)

Volume 4, No. 9, p663–664, September 2017


Marc N Potenza, Mateusz Gola, Valerie Voon, Ariel Kor, Shane W Kraus

In their Comment in The Lancet Psychiatry, John B Saunders and colleagues1 aptly described current debates regarding the consideration and classification of gambling and gaming disorders as addictive disorders, which occurred during the generation of DSM-52 and in anticipation of ICD-11.3 Compulsive sexual behaviour disorder is being proposed as an impulse-control disorder for ICD-11.3 However, we believe the logic applied by Saunders and colleagues1 might also apply to compulsive sexual behaviour disorder.

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 23 - I actually enjoy most social interactions now

Honestly couldn't be more excited about this. I have grown a lot and never entertain the idea watching porn with anything more than a passing thought. Life feels a bit better knowing I am already succeeding at something in the background of it all.

Age 18 – A great boost of confidence, self-esteem and much, much more

Before Nofap, I was miserable. I was PMOing like 2 times a day (which was crazy and gross when I'm thinking about it). My confidence and self-esteem was shit. I had social anxiety, I was unmotivated to do stuff and I never even had a GF.

Age 27 - No longer foggy, unproductive and without the energy to face life

I am a 27 year old dude, self employed, continuously trying to work on myself, with better results just lately as you've seen! Just wanted to let everything out, don't  know if anyone reads such a long babble but I needed to do this! Cheers to all of you.

Age 17 - Confidence, energy, desire to speak with new people

It's been a long journey that had its ups and downs. I found out about no PMO from some friends who claimed it gave you a ton of extra energy but never mentioned this Sub, went 3 days and dismissed it for several months. I knew in the back of my mind PMO was bad for a while as a night before a big test at school I would refuse to do it as I thought it would harm me.

Age 14 - From depressed, weak and sad to busy with all kinds of things

I can do much more workout now than I could before, next year I'm going to a shaolin kungfu temple in china to train, I will be training all day hardcore from 4 am to 10 pm, and semen retention will give me the power to do it. Finding out about nofap is the most important thing that has happened to me.
