yeah

The Great Porn Expirement video was the one I was talking about. Someone linked me that video in another forum, and it really got me thinking.

We can rationalize about it all we want, but until you haven't completed it for yourself, how can we be 100% certain?

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 didn't watch any porn at all until I was in my early 20's and I didn't watch that much of it. It's been the last few years that I've been watching more porn but especially the last few months I've been watching almost every day.

Bawhahahahahahahaha dude ur for sure young, u have a lot to learn...beating off does not cause anxiety/depression/blurred vision (LOL), blindness or hairy palms. In ur head. Shaking hands with ben franklin improves sperm quality and allows u to be a better lover as u learn how to control urself and what turns u on. Some of yall are too funny, u take life WAY too seriously

I've been this way before I stated masturbating. I did have friends before I started masturbating, they were the ones that showed me magazines with naked women. Afterwards I haven't had any friends so who knows.

No.

There is no link.

Kudos to you though.

You should be more relaxed so it should help you, unless you'll be so relaxed you'll be slacking off....

I think this is a case of just correlation rather than causation.

first of all I find your life goals to be rather narcissistic. Secondly, the "yourbrainonporn" site is BS. I looked at it ages ago when it was mentioned in another thread about masturbation. All of the scientific papers mentioned are about the breading habits of rats and a few about dopamine receptors but NOTHING about masturbation and SA. On top of that I've suffered from SA my whole life and only recently have I began to grow out of it and masturbation has F*% all to do with it.

Aaaaaaaaaaagh. This is just religious BS. Take it away and come back when you have some f*%ing empirical data to back this up(which will be NEVER cos it's BS)!

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

Diphenidine and ethylphenidate FTW!

Social anxiety can bite my arse...

I don't have to rationalize it.

I can tell you from personal weeks of abstaining that it's a crock of sh!t.

A steaming, smelly, somewhat unsightly crock of sh!t.

You know what works BEST and I mean 100% foolproof?

Exposure. Not sitting around wondering if jerking off today will break my confidence.

Think about that for a while.

I've been this way since I was a kid even before I masturbated.

I think yes and no, I think you might feel better if you don't masturbate, but having said that I think you might not feel that great either

I don't know if there's a direct link, but I do feel less "worthy" when I masturbate. I usually do it in the shower if I do it. I shower in the mornings and when I get to work or school, I think in my head "I wonder if these people know this guy just masturbated 30 minutes ago". People think I am a good kid and even though you can say there is nothing wrong with masturbation, it just feels wrong somehow. It makes me feel less of a man sometimes.

all you guys getting defensive are just mad you have no self-control to follow through with trying this.

i'm on nearly 2 weeks of nofap and my social anxiety and confidence and depression are soooo much better. Also there's a noticable physiological effect to my libido. It's gone. I have very very low libido despite going from masturbating at least once every day to stopping for almost 2 weeks. You can't explain that unless it means that masturbation and porn caused changes to the chemicals in my brain and they are now going through a withdrawal effect and being reversed.

There is no connection between masturbating and social anxiety. Stop with this bull****.

then how come my social anxiety is going away after i stopped masturbating? you can't explain that.

i just find it funny so many guys here are reacting so angrily, like they dont want to give up their fapping and wont admit they have a problem.
