Age 19 – Just got my first kiss thanks to NoFap!

Just a little back story, im a 19 year old guy that’s a freshman in college. I have never had a girlfriend or anything close due to the fact that I was addicted to porn pretty bad for all of high school. This led to a lot of social awkwardness and depression, (thinking im not good enough to deserve a girl.) BUT NOT ANYMORE!

Age 26 – Feel like an alpha, brain fog gone, impressive academic performance

My life now takes a course of simplicity. I push everything unnecessary out of my life. I don't use a smartphone anymore, it just complicates my life, it might make some situation a little easier but it is a fact that it complicates my life. I also don't watch movies, I have watched so many I had enough. I want to make my own story now.

Age 30 - Married 5 years: ED for 3.5 years (couldn't make love even w/Viagra). PIED is now cured.

Day 45, and I can say this – I am extremely happy with my progress. Some background on my story: Have been married for 5 years – trust me I have had ED issues for 3.5 years, YES in a relation with ED for 3.5 years. I don’t think we ever made love in these 3.5 years.

Age 23 - Completed 1 year of No-PMO! CGPA increased from 2.31 to 2.91

Back Then: Back in the days, especially during 2015/2016, I was heavily involved in watching porn, and masturbating excessively. It felt like the easy way out as doing PMO allowed me to experience few seconds of ultimate happiness, and helped me forget about my responsibilities.

DE cured, one of the best orgasms ever

Before I was beating my dick 7 times a week. Sometimes more. My dick wasn’t fully erect during sex. I could not orgasm during it. It all just felt so boring. After 12 days, me and my gf had sex and I busted ALL KINDS OF NUTS. It was one of the best orgasms I’ve had and I dont think I’ve ever came that much. It felt like I could’ve filled a whole coke can.

Age 20 - My fetish is losing its grip over me

(Most) Fetishes are created and procured with porn. I'm living proof. I, like many of you, developed sick fetishes with porn. Immediately after ejaculation I would regret and HATE myself for the fetishes I was embracing just moments before. The fetish made its way into my dreams regularly, due to the fact that porn was usually the last thing on my mind right before falling asleep every night.

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 16 - The sharp thinking I had years ago is back. The results in school are through the roof. Feel calmer & happier

I finally reached the goal of 90 days! During those 90 days, I was working out a lot, meeting my friends more often than before, and me and my girlfriend have been together for 5 months - it has been probably the best time of my life!

PIED cured - Consistent sex with girlfriend with no issues. I spent money on doctors for them to just tell me nothing was physically wrong

Well today I am starting day 1 again of none of this PMO or anything. I don’t have PIED again, but after experiencing it, I never want it again. It was scary as fuck and I spent money on doctors and a urologist for them to just tell me nothing was physically wrong.

Age 31 – DE healed. Holy shit, the sex!

I'm 31, married and one kid. I started NoFap about six months ago when I thought I had a pretty good life. Good job, would wake up early to workout, got along with the wife, had sex about once a week, had goals, etc. I found NoFap and thought maybe it could help with my Delayed Ejaculation (took 45-60 minutes of intense sex with fantasy to possibly finish).

4-year NoFap report, relationship story

At 8 months I could control my adrenaline at will and it feels like your body is making its own cocaine, all through the day. I didn’t need to smoke weed anymore, moderate caffeine usage, cold showers (like you just walk in them and wish they were colder), at least 100 push ups, and 100 sit ups, 6am cardio (you just need to get your heart rate up in the AM, use the College gym), confidence, confidence, confidence, a peaceful since of self (meditation, headspace), and I did, no hesitation, dreams are no longer dreams,

Age 26 - Failed often before hitting my goal, 420 folk...quit that first

I think the benefits I’ve seen are deeper voice, easy eye contact, desire to be more social. Another big benefit though is that you’re clearly able to see what you're missing in life to be the best version of you. Personally I didn’t see HUGE super powers and I didn’t magically become someone amazing

Age 18 - PIED gone, for the first time and things worked like normal

Over the weekend my girlfriend and I hung out. We got a little frisky as usual, and long story short, I ended up coming during sex for the first time. It was truly a magical moment for me as my PIED went away for the first time and things worked like normal.

"Correcting Misunderstandings About Neuroscience and Problematic Sexual Behaviors"

In recent years, neuroscience discoveries about the reward system and human sexuality have shed new light on both problematic and healthy sexual behavior.

As can be expected with any new paradigm, however, some doubtful neuroscience claims have also appeared in the media. As a neurosurgeon and the author of several papers on problematic sexual behavior and the appetite/reward mechanisms of the brain, I sometimes help to correct these misunderstandings. Here are a few examples that might be of interest to our readers.
