My problem is, I've now had two sex dreams twice in a row... I could feel the difference though. I felt like I had to go out and find poon more.

After a second episode, i am now 100% convinced that the No Porn aspect is as important if not more important than the No Fap. Edging absolutely kills the built up energy. After 4-5 days, I'm horny as a dog, and will edge. I used to think this would help psych me up for the bars, but it has the opposite effect.

I don't know how some of you can go stone cold noporn/nofap so easily. The only two times I actually made it a whole week without both a hooked up with girls. One was a friend! LOL.

I NEED TO DO IT AGAIN THIS WEEK.

I've have been doing no fap for quite a while. I still watch a little porn 1-2 a week but I'm trying to cut that out also.

The results have been great. I feel much more aggressive and motivated, not only to approach, but to approach in a dominating and escalating way.

Although I get sex most weeks, on those occasions that I don't, I find that usually on days 6-11 I'm on sort of a testosterone high, really focused, aggressive and confident with an elevated mood. But even on days 2-5 I feel better also.

Believe me, when your balls are full and aching for release, and you know the only way you are going to get relief is by coming in or on a girl, it sharpens your game considerably

It all depends on your current sex drive. If you have a high sex drive and not getting laid then you will need to. If you have a low sex drive then you certainly want to stay away from porn and jacking off.

Like everything else the problem is too much masturbation or porn. If you have a normal sex drive then masturbating once or twice a week is enough to give that release to help you be calm and more focused. If you have a high sex drive and don't have constant sex then not masturbating at all will make you nervous and too aggressive. Women will think that sex is ALL you want. They will smell the sexually desperation on you and probably run. The point is striking a balance. You want to be aggressive BUT not too aggressive. (After you are banging a girl you can be more aggressive.) Also if you are thinking about sex all the time you may not be able to focus on your work or other activities. You may also find that not masturbating at all and also not having sex can actually decrease your sex drive as in use it or lose it. You body gets use to not have any kind of sex and just adapts.

Other factors such as your current stress level, physical and mental condition (depression) also plays a part. Many of us use masturbation and porn as stress relief. So it's not a simple yes or no answer... The trick is finding a balance that allows you to perform well in your work and regular activities yet leaves enough motivation to go and get women.

Why are sex dreams a problem?

Because I jizzed during those dreams.

Can't imagine it having much of any impact on your overall sex drive. Just letting off some stream.

Day 6 and my nuts are already itching for a release. Is it just porn one needs to abstain from or masturbation as well?


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Ubietza - 07-16-2012 01:15 PM

Day 30 for me. Life changer.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Nomad77 - 07-16-2012 01:15 PM

Porn is worse than masturbating. It creates unrealistic standards in your mind that most real women can't meet. So when you try to get excited about a real women you can't because you are comparing her to porn stars.

Maybe you can tell us how it has changed your life to provide some motivation for others Smile

So, I'm doing this experiment because I want to see how I do without it. Basically, I've chronically masturbated and looked at pornography since I was 11. In order to reroute my brain chemistry, should I just go cold turkey for a while or can I still do it, say once a week or so? I'm afraid that if I decide to do it then I'm going to give in and keep doing it more than once a week.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - NuMbEr7 - 07-16-2012 01:26 PM

Day 6 for me. 14 days is my current goal


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Nomad77 - 07-16-2012 01:30 PM

Your ability to actually quit depends on how things are going in your life. For example, is there a girl you can bang - this helps a lot. Are you stressed out from work - doesn't help. You need the other factors in your life to be working for you not against you.

Personally, I just quit cold. Delete all the porn and all sites. Don't make it easy to access it. Do whatever you need to go get out instead of being in front of a computer. Exercise more. Limit your masturbating to about one or twice a week IF you are not banging anyone. Whenever you feel the need to masturbate go and try to get a girl. Refocus that urge on women and gaming.

If you still wank and look at porn once a week your recovery will be slower. If you absolutely have to masturbate just try not to fantasise or have realistic fantasies. There's an article about this kind of thing on your brain on porn, I remember it but I couldn't find it.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Pinch - 07-16-2012 03:59 PM

Yeah I haven't watched porn in quite a while, my friend showed me yourbrainonporn.com . . I usually go a week without beating it but you do definitely feel better when you don't -- i.e standing behind some chick in line who's got a fine ass and you're getting these huge waves of desire, even when riding a bike and passing by, it's that intense . I used to not even feel that when I was younger and jerkin it to porn every night . I would have to be sitting next to a girl flirting to get a hard on, but now, for the better and worse it's happening anywhere I go, you look into a girls eyes when you're talking to them and all that's on your mind is how you'd want to fuck them, the words you're saying is just autopilot . . It's good energy as well .

Good group, I'm in . I'm already on day 4 without masturbation but probably day months and months without porn . Be careful of that "what do you guys consider a 10 " thread . It'll tempt you .


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Pinch - 07-16-2012 04:00 PM

Oh yeah, and the last time I stopped masturbating for long periods of time (like 3 weeks) I had two wet dreams within 1 week . That shit will happen a lot.

Touché, I'll give that a shot.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Some guy - 07-16-2012 04:27 PM

I once felt like my penis was going to explode and I ended up just lying in bed for hours, not getting any sleep. I was determined to not touch myself. I think you have to get through the difficult period where you feel like you're going to explode by not giving in and wanking. In fact I had one week where I went one night with no sleep, the next night with one hour, then three hours etc. Until I got back to normal. After that week I haven't really gotten any withdrawal problems. I think I'll go out solo sometime soon, I'm definitely feeling more confident...


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Some guy - 07-16-2012 04:30 PM

Oh and for the record, I started trying to quit near the end of December, the last time I viewed porn was sometime in february, the last time I masturbated was at the end of march. I now only have realistic fantasies and I feel pretty good.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - NewGamer - 07-16-2012 10:18 PM

Controlled the urge for the past two days.Gave in today without the porn though.That's some progress in my book.


RE: NoPorn / NoFap Google Group - For Those Who're Serious - Screwston - 07-16-2012 10:51 PM

4 days here. I've been on a pussy drought and started calling some girls in my phone tonight who I haven't talked to in a minute. I feel the beast coming out.
