Hello gents, I have a surprise for you:

I am on 237 days, and I've not been with a woman in that time either.

I'm sure you have lots of questions.

Have you made an effort to go out and chase pussy? I for one can not go a week without making at least a handful of approaches at night and distributing my sexual energy.

I think combining nofap with 2-3 nights out a week and at least decent game, the results can be substantial.

That's a definite no. All of my flirting is done at work, with both colleagues and customers. I ended up giving my number to a customer around day 170, which led to a non-physical relationship (just ended). I got interest from a girl earlier in my streak, but she turned out to be a flake.

As for chasing pussy outside of work;

I'm not a fan of the club scene, and the average "talent" in said scene isn't exactly up to par. So drunk, easy 4/10 girls are out of the window.

I haven't tried day-game yet, but I always tell myself I don't have the skill-set for it.

All of my spare time/energy is spent on extra curricular pursuits in the form of personal development instead.

That's a long time amigo. You should bang out a 4 to gain some momentum.

If you jerk off now, you'll blow a load so big the state you live in might tip over

I had a "cold spell" of 6 years, up until last year. I was still masturbating the whole time. So it goes without saying I'm used to lack of sex...I just don't have masturbation as a crutch any more.

And if not having that crutch is worth killing myself over, my issues go beyond addiction.

I used to spend a lot of my time playing video games, mainly an MMORPG. I used to work out quite a lot, read books (PUA material for example) and study to be a personal trainer before I discovered that MMO I refer to.

Doing nofap has given me the strength to quit that MMO, and video-gaming in general. I haven't played a game for 37 days now. I'm back to lifting&cardio, reading and keyboard practise.

I dunno man, I've only had two sexual partners, they were both in LTR's. And they were 7+/10's as far as I was concerned while going out with them, I'm worried I'll lose any respect I have left if I fuck girls I don't consider attractive.

What's a state? I kid, I'm a UK resident.

And I don't plan on jerking off any time soon. I like to think I'm done with fapping, for the rest of my life.

Hey buddy,

I think it's good you stopped the gaming for now. At the very least until you get this side of your life running the way you want it to.

You have to want it, badly. You have to go out consistently and use that built up desire to make you approach. Nofap will not get you laid; going out with motivation to will.

I suggest going out at least 3 nights a week. Pick a night during the regular week that has potential for you, for me that is Wednesdays. Go out Friday and Saturday, and during those nights, be heavily direct.

Many people are against direct game like this. Girls are used to getting hit on, so why be another one of those guys? It's all in the delivery. I have a couple buddies who can pull regularly, and their game is aggressive and direct. They softly grab and pull in girls that walk by them, with a smile. They see a girl they want, they intrude in on their group and pull them towards them. What you say doesn't matter, it's how you say it. Their eye contact is extreme, dominant, and sexual. If you are thinking about isolation, cockblocking etc, that should not matter. The goal here is to get her so in the moment with you she tells her friends to leave her alone for a minute. Or you grab her and pull her in and yell to her friends 'she is mine! You can't cockblock this blossoming romance.'

This is something I've seen my buddies do to pull. I say 1/5 girls they 'pull in' they can get some serious attraction going. From there it is just about working out logistics, which is the harder part. Basically, get her so aroused with you she won't give a shit about her friends at that moment.

This game takes a lot to pull off though, it's all in body language and delivery. I'm still working on making it a part of my techniques.

Also, day game. There are many great threads here on day game you should search up.

Closing in on my first legit 90 days with no porn.. I even stopped looking at things like the "what do you consider a 10" thread on here. I think the biggest difference it makes in your energy an desire to go out is in the earlier stages when you stop, like the frist few weeks or month. Ofcourse im in a LTR an get head an arse constantly so im sure that makes things different then if i was single an sex starved.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - _DC_ - 03-28-2013 07:27 PM

I know the YBOP site has been discussed often but this particular page, and accompanying comments are absolutely ridiculous. I don't think Ive ever seen such strong anecdotal evidence for anything (including strong medication) in my life.

http://www.yourbrainonporn.com/is-porn-making-my-social-anxiety-worse

They only have a loose scientific understanding (porn is an unnatural and incredibly dopamine hijacking activity) but all you need to read is some of these experiences. Ive abstained myself several times but think 6 days is honestly the longest Ive gone. Most people seem to see the biggest changes 1-2 weeks in.

Im sick of getting IOIs out of the walls and just not being motivated enough. After going 4-5 days, I see the results above. Id say there is a 500% increase in people opening me in conversation or girls flat out complementing me. Id imagine this strong physical and mental change is reflected outwardly. I think the #1 difference between getting laid in my early 20s vs upper 20s is that wolfish desire.

My balls are aching right now on day 5 and Im at least going two weeks for the first time ever. There are plenty of anecdotes to dismiss (virgins and people worrying about "objectifying women") but most are overwhelming evidence for increase in energy and motvation, better social skills, and wolfish desire to impregnate girls.

Hey guys, first post here. Regards from Brazil!

My dry spell is on the third month, I am frustrated and I will give this program a shot.

Day #1 Good luck for us. Smile


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - DriftWood - 04-06-2013 02:24 PM

Almost third week here, benefits have been amazing. Confidence has skyrocketed, and I'm way more unreactive around girls. I just move through the world like it belongs to me. Eye contact is immovable. Have been getting approached by girls and getting signals galore everywhere I go. Deeper voice, I think this is actually due just to being a lot more relaxed. Man, what have I been doing too myself all these years...

This may be of interest to some of you guys.

Pornographic Picture Processing Interferes with Working Memory Performance

Quote:Abstract
Some individuals report problems during and after Internet sex engagement, such as missing sleep and forgetting appointments, which are associated with negative life consequences. One mechanism potentially leading to these kinds of problems is that sexual arousal during Internet sex might interfere with working memory (WM) capacity, resulting in a neglect of relevant environmental information and therefore disadvantageous decision making. In this study, 28 healthy individuals performed 4 experimental manipulations of a pictorial 4-back WM task with neutral, negative, positive, or pornographic stimuli. Participants also rated 100 pornographic pictures with respect to sexual arousal and indicated masturbation urges previous to and following pornographic picture presentation. Results revealed worse WM performance in the pornographic picture condition of the 4-back task compared with the three remaining picture conditions. Furthermore, hierarchical regression analysis indicated an explanation of variance of the sensitivity in the pornographic picture condition by the subjective rating of the pornographic pictures as well as by a moderation effect of masturbation urges. Results contribute to the view that indicators of sexual arousal due to pornographic picture processing interfere with WM performance. Findings are discussed with respect to Internet sex addiction because WM interference by addiction-related cues is well known from substance dependencies.

Update here. I am more or less done with 'nofap'. Didn't really see the benefit of continuing, after 83 days. I was never really addicted to begin with and that is what the whole 'nofap' practice is intended to fix.

As long as you keep fapping to a minimum, say 1-2x a week max, you are good. Also, no porn, that is what I believe is detrimental.

In moderation, masturbation will allow you to still sap into your sexual nature without being counter-intuitive. Too much and you will release too much of that energy and lose drive to bang and meet new women.

During this run I banged 3 new women, and that is not because of going on a long streak. It's because whenever I had the thought of fapping, say on a Tuesday, I'd tell myself to reconsider it after I went out on Wednesday through Saturday. And normally the times I did pull off 3-4 nights a week, I did very well either by getting a ONS or several makeouts and prospects. Makeouts on their own I find are good because they allow you to release some of that sexual energy by sharing it with another woman. The more attractive she is, the stronger that release. Although the strongest and most powerful release is during sex, of course.

To sum up what I have learned:
- Nofap isn't that big of a deal. A lot of affects you hear about (energy, confidence etc) might just be placebo, unless you are a chronic fapper and you suddenly stop (not my case, so can't attest). I think when a lot of people say they are more social, giving more eye contact and such on nofap, are under a confirmation bias of some sort. They force themselves to be more social subconsciously so they can confirm that nofap is working. Social psychology states we want to be consistent, and obviously not put in work for nothing; we want things to work. You say girls are checking you out more and giving you more eye contact? Maybe its because you have chosen to look at girls more and you have started to notice what they have been doing all along.
- Nofap on its own won't end dry spells, instead will increase your motivation to go out there and pull. More motivation=more effort=higher chances=more results
- Porn is what should be cut down. Accept you have a sexual nature and fap in moderation, and you are set.

That concludes my nofap experiment. Might try again in the future. Would be great to hear some other experiences.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Amigoish - 04-11-2013 01:30 PM

Fapped twice in the afternoon and had an ONS at night. Fucked her twice and couldn't nut, it was frustrating. So my issue is tha it gets too much time to nut, i get tired and she does as well i don't have lack of motivation issue. So i'll go no fap during the weekends and around days chicks come over.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - bacan - 04-13-2013 11:02 PM

I'm starting this up again.. Day 1


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - bionicman - 04-14-2013 10:12 AM

Hopping on the no-fap train as well. Making this post so I can look back at it and know how long I've managed to not fap. DAY 1. (okay i fapped earlier today so technically its day 0, but fuck it.)

Gonna make it a habit to just do a bunch of push-ups everytime I get the urge to beat my dick like it owes me money.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Roadrunner - 04-15-2013 09:11 PM

I have failed before but never again. I am committing to not tapping/no porn.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Cr33pin - 04-16-2013 08:56 AM

Watched some porn yesterday out of boredum.... Did not fap tho

I remember watching porn on a lap top while doing p90x back in the day an working out harder. The internet says that watching porn releases testosterone. Only thing is like 45 mins after my work out I would be so horned up Id try (successfully) to bang the neighbors goat.... it was baaaaaaaad


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - presidentcarter - 04-16-2013 09:14 AM

Starting this. On day 2.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - RCron - 04-16-2013 04:10 PM

Just discovered this thread. I'm on day 14 today with no fapping or sex. Going to be meeting up with a FB tonight so I'm dreading the chaser effect tomorrow.
