This is not a good argument. Charles Manson also claimed The Beatles' music led him to murder, specifically their 1968 self-titled double album ("The White Album").

Dan White, the guy who murdered San Francisco Mayor Harvey Milk in 1979, blamed his actions on junk food -- specifically Hostess Twinkies. His testimony became known as "The Twinkie Defense."

The fact is that homicidal maniacs are not right in the head and will blame their actions on ANYTHING in order to shirk responsibility. We wouldn't trust these guys to give us directions to the 7-Eleven; why trust them when it comes to talking about their motives?

Anyway, think about it: If The Beatles, pornography, and junk food really did drive men to kill, the murder rate would be sky-high. Especially back in the 1990s, when we all waited in lines outside Best Buy to get the new "Anthology" CDs (anyone remember those days?).

RE: How porn screws up your brain
I went on a 90 day no-fap no-porn trek. I still fap on occasion, not nearly like I used to. The most important thing is I can't really get off to porn anymore. I've watched one or two since then, and it's like watching any other movie. No physical reaction though, really. On the other hand, my biggest inclination to fap comes when I receive nudes from girls I'm banging/going to bang.

Porn definitely rewires the brain.

RE: How porn screws up your brain
My problem with porn is it's sort of like watching someone else play a videogame. I have things I want to do to the girl I'm seeing and most often the guy isn't doing it the way I would do it and it bothers me. This is especially bad because things like anal and other gonzo shit are so commonplace anymore. I also am incredibly tired of facials and that's 90% of the clips out there. I also don't like the scenarios in most porn because they are so damn...NEGATIVE. It's usually some sort of hate-fuck or power-trip situation. Surprise-creampies where the girl freaks out afterwards. Being "punished" for shoplifting. Fake taxi with the sleaziest looking chicks imaginable. Guys wrapped up in plastic getting their orgasms "ruined". Various faked incest situations. Prositution scenes where the guy throws a wad of cash on her after he blows his wad and walks out with her sobbing in tears. A gaggle of clothed girls demeaning some guy. First-timers who get mechanically fucked in a hotel-room and the guy always delivers an oh-so-romantic line "it wasn't so bad was it?" Is that the selling point for women? It's not so bad?

I miss the 80s and 90s porn that had playful or humorous situations where it didn't seem like men and women were hopelessly locked in mutual contempt.

Then you add in how tatted up and pierced the girls are these days and it takes more time to find something acceptable than it's worth.

RE: How porn screws up your brain
I have been doing nofap for more than a year, i started nofap because i had trouble getting hard for real girls and most of all approaching girls, since i have stop, my approaching has gone up way more, i talk to at least one girl everyday, my only requirement is that she passes the boner test. It became even more crazy when I decided to do semen retention, which is having sex without ejaculation although it is hard to do so(increase penis sensitivity, and you have to have the will to actually not ejaculate ) it gives me the asshole confidence vibe, i can't wait to be on my way out to talk to some girls nd get new pussy, because you get easily bored with the ones you already had

Dafuck??

I agree with your post though. I haven't gone completely no fap but have cut back to jerking off to porn maybe once every two weeks, down from about 4-5x a week. When I do indulge I prefer the amateur stuff, preferably POV (although I also do like the Fake Taxi and casting couch stuff...a lot of the latter is POV too though). Definitely noticed an improvement in my sex drive, erection quality, and performance--although to be fair I made a number of other positive and t-boosting life changes around the same time so how much of this is attributable to cutting back on porn I'm not sure.

I got my Magnum condoms, I got my wad of hundreds, I'm ready to plow!

It's called "cocooning", an extreme form of tease and denial. If you chase new highs, you pursue sicker and sicker stuff.

That being said, PoV is not the worst.

I'd rank them in this order.
  1. Masturbating without porn
  2. Stills of a current GF
  3. Solo of current GF
  4. PoV of a current GF
  5. Stills of conventionally attractive women without any fetish component.
  6. Solo vids of a woman
  7. Hetro POV with a woman
  8. Video of you and your current GF

Stuff with other men or from different perspectives will send you on the path to cuckdom. Stuff with a past GF would make you miss her and trap you in the past. The worst is "Lesbian" porn designed for straight males, One theory is that substituting yourself for one of the women would give you gender confusion.

Here's an example of something I'd consider safe but slightly NSFW.

RE: How porn screws up your brain
Porn hasn't much screwed up my brain, not yet anyway. I still enjoy sex with my GF.

What HAS screwed up my brain, however, is working for women! It's turned me from a nice, normal, well-adjusted guy to a psychopath who has fantasies about ...well I can't say, they might arrest me!

Don't work for women, guys. Don't do it. It isn't right. It isn't NATURAL. It's a societal disorder that disturbs the essential movements of the planet...

I think porn is pretty harmful and support no porn no fap..... but your statement is absolutely asinine. It's up there with telling kids they will go blind or get hairy palms if they masturbate.

I've watched porn my whole life and I'm in no way shape or form down to be a cuck, quite the opposite.

Again I'm all for dudes getting off porn and fapping an do think its long term harmful. But stop with that "porn's gonna make you a gay lefty cuck" shit

RE: How porn screws up your brain
I have been off porn for the better part of a month now, and I don't really see myself going back. There is something about watching other people that just makes me feel not good inside, I also feel like a piece of shit after watching pornography. I have noticed that I feel so much more confident, can speak to people so much more easily, and have a consistent feeling of levelness without it.

I believe that there's definitely something sinister about porn. Something meant to control and ruin potential. I also know that there is definitely a tendency towards addiction in it, seeing that it fulfills a desire in most men (to be a stud and get multiple women, even if they are only virtual).

When VR porn becomes a normality, I think you will see men completely bow out of society, what's the point in chasing real women when you have thousands at your finger tips?

Always go the hard route, gentlemen. Jerking off is easy. Becoming a social beast is not.

RE: How porn screws up your brain
Here's my take on it:

1) Knowing You Can Whack it to Good Porn is a Cop Out from Gaming

How many times have you heard people say they'd rather jerk off? That's affecting you on a subliminal level and can reduce your value for sex with a real girl. Just wait until sex robots come out.

2) It Breeds Self-Doubt

Comparing yourself to someone who is taller, more ripped, and packing longer heat isn't good.

3) Watching Porn is so Compelling Because You Get to Bang the Girl Vicariously

For this reason, it's obviously enjoyable, but what's really happening is that you're wishing you were the other guy the whole time. You're seeing him as more valuable than yourself. Not healthy.

4) It Stays in Your Mind Whether You Want it to or Not

Dirty stuff will start to pop into your head randomly if you watch it too much. It's voyeurism which is unnatural and disruptive to normal everyday thoughts.

SOLUTION:
Only watch videos where it's just the girl with no dude. You will notice a difference in the way you think after only a couple of weeks of cutting dick porn out of your life.

Training a generation of curious young men and women to be only sexually aroused by giant dongs, homosexuality, massive breasts, inter-racial, incest, cuckoldry and all sorts of depraved shit.

What could possibly go wrong.

RE: How porn screws up your brain
It screws up your brain, but in those rare moments when you're restless and pining for it, it seems like the best thing since sliced bread. Just being honest.

I usually get 5 days or a week up of 'sobriety' and barely think about it...then it creeps back in, as it did last night.

It's like a rush of dopamine to the primal lizard brain part of a man's mind that wants unlimited procreation.. it literally is like a drug that stimulates (and then crashes) your lizard brain.

Very hard to completely be free from, in a sterile and asexual society.

I thought about making a new thread for this, but I don't have anything to add to it:

Dr. Evan Goldstein, one of the top rectal surgeons in the world (and a homosexual himself), just appeared on the Pornhub podcast with Asa Akira to discuss the finer points of anal sex.

So you see, even a trusted surgeon endorses anal sex and the porn industry. So it's totally good for you.

^Good for him for being a doctor, but being a rectal surgeon sounds like one of the most awful jobs on the planet. God damn that's disgusting. Mike Rowe should do a Dirty Jobs episode for that.

RE: How porn screws up your brain
My problem with porn is the escalation it causes. The stuff I was watching as a 14 year old compared to what's out there for young teenage lads is worlds apart. The most risque thing you'd see in the late 90s was maybe a 'spit roast' or something similar, not these extreme 'facefucking' scenes where the girl is quite literally overwhelmed and in genuine tears. That stuff is legitimately misogynistic and incredibly coercive, the fact it's so popular proves the point of this thread to be correct. I do believe, however, that guys have an ability to compartmentalise and while they might like watching 'blah blah DESTROYED in blah blah" they don't actually view real girls in that manner.

I haven't watched porn for 3 months and it was the easiest decision ever once I realized three things
1) It is indeed psychological warfare
Think all the nasty shit they are pushing. Incest, cheating, cuckolding, sodomy. Who's funding it and why.

2) It messes up your brain's rewarding system


3) It trains you to be a cuckold
How can any man with self respect admit to jerking off watching other guys bang women they like?
It's the definition of a cuckold. Then there's the argument "b-but I'm imagining I'm doing the lovemaking" . Oh please.

The wonder/novelty of life wears off over time no matter what. If you go back far enough in time towns were largely isolated. Travel was long and hard. So most people were stuck in their home town. There weren't any videos or photos so you had a very limited perspective of what was outside of your own walkable neighborhood. So just going to the next town was an experience, let alone another state or country.

It's important to not single out porn. We live in an era in which we are saturated with media. If I want to see what any part of the world looks like I can find it within seconds via Google. I can also see just about everything from sex to girl fights to ISIS executions. It's all out there to be vicariously experienced---instantly.

The human animal is really not well adapted to this sort of information overload.
