Stripped My Entire Porn Collection Down to 10%


Hello SAS,

I am pleased to say that without a shadow of a doubt I was finally successful in cleaning out my entire porn collection by deleting all the images and videos I did not care for, and as a result it now currently stands at about 10% of what it once amounted to. I had about 30 or so GB of porn, but now I have just 2 GB.

I was personally inspired by this user to start this thread. I'm really happy for him! Maybe it was my poll thread over deleting porn if you had found a decent lover that got him to go cold turkey? If so, glad to have helped!

I used to have a porn addiction; spending about a dozen hours per week downloading porn was nothing to me. Although eventually I lost much interest for it and it's been sitting there, barely touched whenever I would feel aroused. And now, amazingly so, my porn collection has been reduced to shreds. So many images and videos trashed away forever in exchange for extra hard drive space and a better self-esteem in life.

I am making changes in my life (for the better), and by narrowing down my porn stash I feel like a more sane, decent guy than before. It truly is a breath of fresh air to realize this myself. I actually held no regrets whatsoever for the files I was deleting!

You watch porn? Ewwww.
I never ever understood why people watch porn. DISGUSTING.
No dignity.
No humanity.
Just EW!

I am (sadly) the 0.01%.


But good luck on your side! A brave step!!

this just means that you gave yourself more space for more porn.

Watching porn isn't a disgusting thing, it's only a problem if it becomes an addiction or something to rely on. If you don't enjoy it, fair enough.. but let others appreciate it! I enjoy porn, always will.

Well done though MetalRacer, good job

No, it's the final straw for me. I already have all the images and videos that I like. It's just that I'd rather not bother wasting precious time of my life downloading more useless crap. I've been going out more and socializing with women. That, to me, is more "erotic" than watching porn itself and now I have spare time for other activities to keep my mind busy and away from lusting after women I'll likely never have.

Thanks to those who complimented me so far.

I agree with sonofanarchy; that sort of bigotry was uncalled for.

It's good to finally have friends and family inside my house without feeling shame. I'm not 100% yet but my life is no longer wasting away with that trash. The porn I seek now is something real and not necessarily sexual.

If you want to make it stick find a constructive hobby or other activity that you can focus on. And if you don't already have a girlfriend it might be a good idea to try harder in finding one. One other tip I might give you that works for me is if you normally browse porn on one computer get in the habit of using another computer such as a laptop.

Remember anti-porn is not anti-sex. Good luck.

That's nice, are you going to delete the internet too? With thousands of gigabytes at your streaming disposal, its rather easy to quickly indulge yourself with just a few clicks.

Dude, your post sucks.

Since when did deleting things I do not have any use for equate to wanting to delete the Internet? I'm just cleaning out lots of space for more useful things to be stored in as opposed to having a billion porn images/videos that I won't care for much, while still having a good enough amount of porn to go around.

I am done with Social Anxiety Support.

Now quickly change your internet to dial-up so you can't download more.

Ridiculous isn't it?

People suggesting that he'll just be able to download more blah blah.. the point is he took the step and got rid of things he already had, it's not about giving up completely but restricting and narrowing it down. There is always going to be urges and temptations, same as giving up anything. The whole point is he's made a big step and is clear about where he wants to be in life. I think it's a brilliant effort.

Well done MetalRacer, really.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
People are just people, they shouldn't make you nervous

Not the kind of reply you would expect on this forum.

I deleted all of my movies too. It's fake, dirty and has nothing to do with reality.

Congrats on being a giant d**khead! MetalRacer posts a triumph and you go trying (and failing) to be all cool and edgy and call him a loser, on a SA forum.

Grow up.

@ MetalRacer

Good one mate, don't let the haters/doubters bring you down. That was a rather excessive collection you had there and like most things porn is only good in moderation. Good luck getting the real thing btw, YOU CAN DO IT!

What's the purpose in downloading porn and storing it on your computer? It's all out there and free to see. I'm not saying I watch a lot of it or watch it often, but there is the odd occasion that I feel like watching something and do so without having to store the crap on my computer. I would also like to add, just to cure anyone's judgments or curiosity, no I do not sit there and fap to what I'm watching and no I'm not a pervert nor a pedo or any other weird creepy thing you may be thinking.

You watch porn but you don't masturbate to it?

Why watch it then?

I honestly don't have an answer for this.
Because we are all sexual beings interested in sex whether we like to admit it or not?
