Same for me. :/ The thread title is "Turns out masturbation does cause social anxiety." (Emphasis mine.) No clarifications stating that it causes it only for SOME people, or that there might be other causes, etc.

So I again ask only half facetiously, what are those of us who don't masturbate, yet still have social anxiety, supposed to do to remedy the situation, if the thread title is correct...?

There's nothing more annoying than a misleading thread title. :/

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

I've been this way for years. I've been shy and nervous for most of my life. I just don't believe it.

I agree, not to mention all the people here that have had social anxiety from a very young age.

the problem lies when viewing highly stimulating material, is when it rewires dopamine circulatory systems in some individuals.. Other then that keep fappin! But it should only be when in need to release sexual tension. (of course) If there is no need to, then you dont have to do it.

One interesting aspect is when you stop the pornagraphy you naturally masterbate less.. Giving time for testosterone to build up and dopa to better regulate to find possible mates... After all, we are only human. Right?

I think we should have group masturbation as a form of therapy for SA. Lol

I am currently reposed on a stratum of my own pure abstract awesomeness(cubed)...

Diphenidine and ethylphenidate FTW!

Social anxiety can bite my arse...

There have been a few studies to show that abstaining from orgasm increases testosterone with peak affects after a weak, so the increase may make you more confident outgoing resulting in a reduction of anxiety.

Keep in mind that most people masturbate, and most of them don't have SA.

It's all bull**** and there have already been 30+ page threads about it, it's just beating a dead horse at this point.

Anyway, I'm not from the USA but I want to ask what happened to Ron Paul?

Ron Paul seems to be the only one who has a brain.

Start masturbating and then stop maybe?

This. Yes, masturbating all the time is not a good idea. Masturbating in general is as natural as eating. Wank it when you feel like it, but not just because it's there.

If you choose to shut yourself in to masturbate rather than go out and socialize (if that's what stopping you), then maybe it's related in a vague way. Also, if you feel bad or "perverted" for masturbating, then that probably doesn't help your self-esteem. But obviously there are those who do not masturbate and have social anxiety, and those who masturbate that have no social anxiety whatsoever. Show me the studies and the p-values and maybe I'll modify my opinion.

YES

Therapist: 'Charlie Work'? What's 'Charlie Work'? Fill me in.
Charlie: Oh, right. You don't know 'Charlie Work'. Well, 'Charlie Work' is like basement stuff, cleaning urinals, blood stuff, your basic slimes, your sludges, anything dead or decaying, I'm on it, I'm dealing with it.
Therapist: And you dislike it?
Charlie: Oh, no. I love it. I love the dark. I love slippery things. I love being naked... in the sewer. Bleach smells good, it tastes good...

Its not jerking it that causes social anxiety, its the addiction to porn that does it.

I've been relgiously masturbating since i was 12. I was in another forum and someone told me i would reap some benefits sometime during the 90th day.

I have pretty much nothing to loose. I'm terribly afraid of interacting with women i find attractive, I have terribly high social anxiety around them. Even my life aspects, I, wasted my years missing out on job opportunities from laziness, self-image, self-confidence issues and such. My youth years have been spent on nothing but gaming and watch others succeed in front of me.

Might as well give this thing a shot, Day 1 for me started yesterday.

March, 2012: 300lbs(All Time highest 313lbs)
June, 2012: 287lbs
August : 279lbs
October 31 :255lbs

Goal #1 - Get to 190 pounds.
Goal #2 - Lose my virginity before 30 years old
Goal #3- Get a job and break free of SA from women.
Goal #4 - Never Return to these forums again

I've been masturbating since I was about 13. I've stopped for a month or so a couple of times. It hasn't helped me when I've stopped but somebody else it might. I would look at myself and think yuck what girl is going to want somebody that's as fat as you are. I've lost a lot of weight but I wish I would've lost the weight years ago.

Have you ever seen the "Your Brain On Porn" youtube video?
