The NoPorn / NoFap Thread - For Those Who're Serious

Hey Peeps,

There have been several threads about the effects of porn and quitting porn over the last few days. I'm current on Day 8 of no porn, no masturbation. The goal is to build real desire for women, to project more sexuality and to see women more three dimentionally.

There are a lot of different people who get different things from a challenge like this. I highly recommend reading through some of the 60 day and 90 day reports (linked to below) to see what kind of effect it can have on your life. If you're interested in game, the effects of quitting porn and/or masturbation can be huge on your life.

If you're interested in doing the 30, 60 or 90 day challenge and you're serious about it, I'm forming a Google group. The purpose for the group is to create a support network - Much like quitting any other addiction.

You can use the group to:

1) Get to know other people's challenges and how they're resolving it.
2) Send the group a message to vent or ask for support if you're going through a particularly hard time.
3) Know you're not alone and feel a sense of brotherhood as we all tackle an extremely difficult task.
4) Share your ideas, discoveries and breakthroughs as you have them.

If you're interested, drop me a line with your email and I'll send you the invite.

I've quit watching porn and masturbating since the 1st of January of 2012 and I'm still going strong. Women that I've had hooked up before with, have multiple times pointed out that they feel that I have a more animalistic way of having sex with them... it's definitely helping a lot.

After 1 week of not busting a nut, you start to approach anything you see just to get that release.

This group is a great idea

There should be a sub-forum for all of this masturbation and porn talk.

I'll abstain, seems like it can only help.

You make no sense right now. Why would you go out and score girls if you're not horny? I don't see asexual guys going out and trying to get laid. They just stay home and fap. I wonder why. Who, that is not horny, would stay out until 6am talking to random girls unless he's not horny? If I just had sex or masturbated, I couldn't be bothered about going out just to approach chicks.. I'd rather focus time on my business.

I guess it depends on everyone.I know a couple of friends who are always horny, no matter how much they fap. It's not the case with me so I abstain... and it's working like a charm. I notice it also when playing sports or working out.. I seem to be able to get the best out of myself whenever the last time I busted a nut or had sex is longer than 3 days ago. I just seem to have that little bit more of performance in me. I can't really explain it.

Cheers

I have been trying to cut back and its scarily harder than I thought. I have grown up with internet porn and realised that I could not go a few days without landing on one of the million sof porn sites at my finger tips.
The reason I want to quit and the reason I cant is because if Im clean for 3 or 4 days I feel completely energised. The wind blows and I get a boner... the prospect of sex makes me feel alive and happy. However its frustrating and my mind becomes completely focused on Pussy and nothing else!!! Porn is a quick release and brings me back down to a normal level. See Im not sure if this is a product of porn addiction or if I use it as a tool to calm down ; /
Anyway... I continue my battle.

I'd join the group just to share my collection of porn sites with you guys. Cmon, no wanking without porn is not a challenge. Watching some good stuff and NOT wanking, now that's what REAL MEN do!
 
I don't even know what a Google group is. Why can't we just talk about it in here? Day 1 for me starting now...

I'm naturally a very horny guy and I notice I get even crazier after a few days. I feel like a high school student all over except I can actually talk to girls now. This is probably something I would recommend to a newbie since you feel so much hornier as the days pass.

Why do dudes get so heated about guys wanting to abstain from porn? Insecure about their own porn use?

I agree that their doesn't need to be so many threads about it, but if you're not interested in quitting yourself then why do you post on the thread? You aren't going to convince anyone to not stop, and I don't think anyone here is interested in convincing you to stop using porn if you haven't decided that yourself.

Would you feel better if you convinced someone to continue using porn? What is the point?

Because we know that here in America it will end up with a bunch of guys telling each other how long they didn't even touch their dicks when they pee and how much their lives improved, and most if not all of them would still be wanking once in a while.

Unfortunately that's the way of doing things here in US.

i just jerked off to porn. it was great.

I tried the whole porn abstinence deal, its over rated. If you jerking off every single day to porn, and get to the point where you cant sleep unless you do it, then it becomes a problem.

Once every few days or once a week is perfectly fine and isn't going to harm you.

No porn crusade is just as bad as the no carb diet.
 
according to some of those links, it's the porn, not the tuggin' causing the problems. addiction rewiring your brain and all, and giving you the novelty of new partners when in fact you're just fucking yourself. literally.

that leads to more questions:
-is tuggin' it alright if there's no visual aid involved?
-what about using naughty photos/videos sent to you by girls you've banged?

i have a friend who actually tried this for a while...may still be on the train, and he speaks volumes about it. I remain skeptical, but it is certainly a hypothesis worth disproving. i have no desire to know the frequency of other forums members' self-gratification, but I am curious to see if, placebo or otherwise, there is a tangible effect.

most surprising in those articles: the LACK of a link between jerking off and testosterone in the blood stream. I especially try to refrain before any sort of athletic competition (as many do, I am told), but I always thought it was effective because I wasn't depleting my precious T.

i do wish people would stop shitting on those trying this experiment. let them experiment without judgment, and we might all learn something. seriously, isn't that what this forum's about? trying new things to see if it helps us get results?

The only time I ever gave this a go was when I decided I needed to fuck my ex again (because I was young and stupid and had no other prospects). I promised myself the next nut I got would be inside her. cold-called her out of nowhere and got mine within 7 days. so, maybe there IS some validity to these hypotheses?

Who is we?

Quit being so dramatic. This isn't reddit, this is the RVF.

You still didn't explain why you care about other guys abstaining from porn. Clearly, you have some issues with your own porn use, so you come here to preach that it is impossible and/or pointless to quit.
 
If you want to abstain from porn, keep it to yourself. Quit trying to promote your agenda on a gaming forum. Otherwise, I'm going to suspect that you're a MORMON TROLL.
