TED presentation on negative effects of pornography




Basically, it saying that what the Eastern philosophies have maintained- that jerking it "drains" your masculine essence turning you into a big pansy.

Stop jerking it to other people and you'll increase the "masculine" ie- confidence, aggression, motivation, logical planning, ambition, etc.

I like how he emphasizes "interaction with a real person."

Are guys who watch porn the problem, or are fat women with bad skin and worse personalities what's driving men to watch porn?

RE: TED presentation on negative effects of pornography
Very interesting presentation, and I agree with its findings.

Last time I hit a slump, I got rid of porn/jerking for a month to help kick-start my way out of it. It worked and I've never gone back to the same level of use because I recognize how destructive it can be.

That wasn't even the first time I tried this experiment. Back before when I knew fuck all about women and game I would try to go without for a month or so and every time I ended up dating and banging a pretty hot chick.

I think quitting works on a lot of different levels. Increased motivation, increased social awareness, increased horniness, etc.

Wow, powerful video. I guess I've never been that heavily into porn, but I did stop looking at it about a year ago and my life is much better for it.

RE: TED presentation on negative effects of pornography
I can never get past five days. I've honestly tried a bunch of times.

Around day 4-5 I see significant differences. Its like women can just sense the raging hormones inside of you. Its all sub-communicated through body-language I'm sure.

Days 7-10 are supposed to be the craziest. My lack of motivation and lack of physical escalation could improve even more if I held out for at least a week. I'm finally going to make it a week this week!

Results to come in a future post.

Meh.

I jerk it twice a day (usually only once with porn-my imagination is good enough to get by without it if I want). I just don't feel so many of these dramatic side effects I keep hearing about regarding masturbation and "no-fap" philosophy. I've had periods where I've not been able to jerk off for anywhere from several days to a couple of weeks, and I honestly do not feel that much better than any other time.

Perhaps this is just because I have particularly high testosterone levels-I have no problem maintaining an attraction and a desire to pursue women I come across even with two ejaculations a day. It isn't doing any noticeable harm to my relationships.

Maybe this is because I don't watch a lot of the fantasized/mainstream porn. I do not pay much mind to name-brand pornstars from big companies and movies that consist of fake girls on designed movie sets with absurd amounts of makeup and a whole lot of faked/angled positions and moans designed for the camera. I look occasionally if I really am into the particular pornstar, but I just can't get off on the lack of authenticity very often, so I avoid it. 90% of the videos I look at are amateur or non-western (usually has a more amateur feel than mainstream Euro/American porn).

It isn't hard to maintain attraction for real girls you see everyday when the porn you're watching largely consists of real girls. Maybe that would help some guys having trouble with that.

Regardless, I hope whatever you guys decide on helps. I just can't empathize too much having not seen this problem myself, and I'm honestly a touch skeptical of it, but to each their own.

RE: TED presentation on negative effects of pornography
I think I might be addicted to the internet... Not to porn necessarily. I am thinking of giving up porn completely.

I have noticed that too much porn kills my drive to go out and seek women or push for sex when it's not a sure thing and it also makes sex less satisfying... At the moment I try to only watch porn shortly after having sex because I don't want to it to stop my drive for or pleasure in actually achieving sex.

I remember the most caveman I ever went in a sexual interaction (including literally picking a girl up and walking her to the cab.. getting to her house.. doing an unintentional freezeout before I knew the move had a name.. and having sex with her) and one of the most satisfying orgasms I had ever had.. was after going many many days of making out and dancing with girls with no closing .. no access to porn or privacy to jack it due to traveling in hostels.. The girl was chubbier than girls I would hit on today due to my higher standards that I now have and it gives me no ego boost to think that I got with her but very often I recollect on how amazing that sex was, how powerful that orgasm was... Man, fuck, now I am having sex too often to simulate that "blue ball, wanting it so bad and finally, finally getting it" feeling... I am worried my libido has dropped and I am not even old.

I am going to see how long I can go without jacking off (to porn or to anything else) starting today. Maybe I'll see if I can go 60 days and then re-evaluate once I'm there.. Does watching porn but not jerking it have a negative effect? I wonder.

It will be interesting to see the effects of this. On one hand, my stamina might go down. Or I might have a higher sex drive that I put into fucking more girls, more often and harder/better..

I just failed a couple of days ago on Day 8. I've got to say, it is pretty crazy. I don't even really consider myself addicted, but it's amazing how weird your body will get if you try to break a comfort zone.

Obviously I'm going to try again. It is like taking drugs and getting weird effects without getting the drugs. Awesome.

Good luck with making it a week. You can do it.

I went 8.5 weeks on no-fap challenge. No exaggeration. I beat that game.

Everyone else is going on about when they last jacked off, how long its been since they've jacked off, etc, etc. Who cares? We're all being honest.

RE: TED presentation on negative effects of pornography
in my experience, if i haven't had sex for a while, say a week or two, i start getting massive urges and the next girl that get's it, get's it GOOD. i fuck her like a madman and she fucking loves it.

this is specifically sex, jerking doesn't affect it.

This comes from Taoist practice. Unfortunately for this guy and those of you who believed him, Taoists maintain that ANY ejaculation leads to the loss of life power. It doesn't matter if you come in your hand or in someone's vagina.

So using it as something against masturbation is moronic at best. But at least he didn't say it would make you blind or that baby jesus in the sky cries every time you touch your penis. For a puritan America this is a significant progress already.

When you say you didn't jerk off 8 1/2 weeks, that means you were still banging girls during this time right?

If one gets too backed up, girls can sense it, and its a turn off to them. Too much porn is bad, just like too much tv, or too many video games, because its a fantasy world.

RE: TED presentation on negative effects of pornography
Usually I stop jerking it about 2 weeks to a month before my next trip. I have found that when I do this my game is tighter the moment I get on the plane. Also, that "first fuck" of the trip is tons better.

RE: TED presentation on negative effects of pornography
I have a girl I can call at any time as well. In fact, I kinda blamed her for "ruining" my experiment last weekend because I was only on day 3 and we banged.

The funny thing is the last time I actually got to the horny-zone, day 4-5+ was when I banged her for the first time. She had been a friend for a few years and I just woke up next to her. This is the shit that happens when your sperm is looking for a way out.

Also, I'm currently about 2.5 days in. I'm making it to 7 days. I'd like to try for 8-10 days, which I hear can get real interesting. The only way I'll puss out now is if a hot girls poon gets in the way.

RE: TED presentation on negative effects of pornography
I scaled my fap time way back since I get sex regularly, but I would still occasionally masturbate to porn. Not anymore. All my bookmarks are gone and I refuse to visit the free sites anymore. I'm going to record myself deleting my enormous external drive porn stash (it has movies too) and post it on my blog soon. No need.

That said, I wonder if it counts if the porn is homemade with someone you are (or were previously) banging? Because I have some footage.
