No More Porn For Me

Looks like you have a strong libido and need more sex. What is wrong with masturbation anyway?

But since late October, my libido has been skyrocketed. During my abstinence period, I was wearing vacADS so I couldn’t get hard or else it would get hurt! But since I am taking a break from hanging and ADS, I have so much time.

Well, for the last 10 days, I have jacked off once a day almost. I don’t need porn.. I have a very visual mind that will get stimulated so easily.

One thing I found is that after a month of no porn, my penis has become EXTREMELY sensitive. I can cum so easily now.. it’s not even funny! Before with too much masturbation, I could barely cum by getting sucked off… but now it is so easy.. it’s magical!

Ever since I stopped multiple orgasms per day, my sleep has been poor. I now take magnesium and velarian as natural supplement to calm my nerves. I literally will wake up by 4-5am with a raging boner.. it’s been a while since I have a straight 7+ hour sleep.

Well.. I am still shooting for less masturbation and orgasm. Perhaps no more than once a week.

Captain Winky:
Yes, my masturbation habit was developed out of boredom. I am a very active and visual person. So Internet porn has provided my body’s need for quick dopamine fix. Darn.. I need to change that. It’s so addicting.

I tend to think that looking at pictures of naked women (sans penetration) isn’t as bad as the hardcore stuff.

Is it like cocaine vs crack or nicotine vs crack?

Thoughts?

Exactly right. The more hardcore gonzo stuff definitely causes more elevated dopamine levels, which is more addictive. Other things that increase dopamine levels are novelty, the idea of how wrong something is, shame, use of aids such as toys and practices such as autoerotic asphyxiation etc.

This also explains why guys who are addicted to porn keep looking for more and more “out there” stuff to get the same feeling of release. It might also explain why some guys end up looking at child porn, because of the same/wrong factor.

Nothing is wrong with masturbation. This is not an anti-masturbation thread. All things in moderation. I personally go for a less is more approach to masturbation and try and keep it down to a minimum.


100% Porn Free From 06/07/2010

Ever since I did the two week no porn/masturbation, I have been back to masturbation once 1-2 days, and edging almost everyday. Even though I am getting a lot of stimulation down there, I find that I have less urge to look for sex. I just enjoy pleasuring myself.

I think PE actually has helped me with this. I believe that masturbation hinder gains, so I don’t want to have too much sex :-P It’s a strange reinforcement.. but good motivation!


Notorious "Hardgainer". No Gain in 4 Years! Check out my "Blog" under Profile.

(starting: Jun 2007) 5.75" BPEL x 5" EG / (Sept 11, 2011) 6.375" BPEL x 5.125" EG / (July 1st, 2014) 6.25" BPEL x 5.125" EG (lost a bit of size)

I guess I’ll toss my name in the hat to swear off porn.

My longest streak was close to 7 months and during that time my mind was so clear and focused. It seemed like the relationships with my friends were better too. I could also do my PE routines pretty easily without porn.

I’ve been hanging out with this girl lately that’s really into me and last Saturday we fooled around and my dick would NOT cooperate. Luckily she really likes me and didn’t mind when I said, “I think this can wait, we have plenty of time later for sex”. I’ve been without porn for close a week now and my sex drive is nonexistent. I used it for my PE sessions but I have a habit of ejaculating at the end of my workouts. So I’m giving up all stimulation (PE and masturbation) through thanksgiving and I probably won’t see her again till the end of the month so hopefully my sex drive and erections start to come back to me.

I’m committed this time around to rid porn from my life for good. Everyone here has made some really good points and it’s nice to know everyone else has had some EQ and libido difficulties shortly after going cold turkey. I’m not sure I crave porn like some of you guys but I use it frequently enough for PE that it’s affected me in the same way.

I still really want to continue PE as well. I only need 1/4” in length and girth to reach my goal size. The way I see it I’ll use this next month and a half as a deconditioning break and if I feel ready I’ll add stretching back into my routine at the beginning of January.

I simply can’t resist masterbation with porn, it is way stronger than me and I think that I’m exaggerating. I do it three or more times a day, some days less, some days more, there are rare days with no masterbation, about five in a month.

I have regular sex with a gf, at least twice a week, and on those days I masterbate even more (imagining previous sex with her).

I know that I have to slow down, but it has became an addiction and it is very hard to resist. I think I masterbate even more now than back then in my early 20’s (I’m 30). My greatest concerns regarding this habit are fertility, penis tissue health and ED in later life, I’m not sure whether a lot of masterbation might have an relation with this things.


Start 5,9" (15cm) NBPEL 5,1" (13cm) EG

1.11.2010. 6,3" (16cm) NBPEL 5,2" (13,2) EG

Goal: ~7" (18cm) NBPEL ~6" (15cm) EG

I lost control doing this in 3 weeks end up watching porn 3x times a day, I think masturbating was my downfall so I’m not doing it anymore. Now I’m back on this 2 weeks, my libido feels so down that I didn’t even feel like doing PE until today. I hope I can get past a month.

Current: 7.4 inch BPEL 5.4 inch MSEG 5.75 inch BSEG (Oct 24 2009)

Goal: 7 inch NBPEL 5.5 inch EG=> New Goal: 7.75 inch BPEL 5.75 MSEG

Here’s what I’ve been doing. Don’t worry about fertility or any of that :D
The worst problem of this is the energy depletion. As you get older it takes a lot of resources in the body to create sperm. At least with me that is the case. Couple that with only 5 hours of sleep a night, work, working out, it’s getting to the point at 39 where it takes me 5 days to really get up a good load and libido.

Masturbation is like a drug. Do it more and more and you feel less and less. Same idea.

What I’ve been doing that is absolutely mind bending. I’ve been restoring foreskin. I am 1.5 months in and I got 3/4 flacid coverage which is good. But by keeping the glans covered it’s increasing sensitivity a lot. Now this plus no porn / hands off policy and I’m a raging madman after 4 days or so. I’ve been having spiritual like orgasms with wife. All from keeping my hands off myself and staying away from porn. I’ve also been doing more kegels than I’ve ever done before in my life.

I’m the same way. I see a set of nice tits and I have to beat off. BUT. If you can get yourself to do something else immediately, after 5 minutes the urge goes away. Do some deep breathing and imagine drawing that sexual energy up your spine to your head.

By watching porn and beating off constantly, your limiting your experience. Doing the same thing over and over. Most of us don’t even realize the libido levels we can experience by having a 1 load a week policy.


Since you are my property, the contents of your mind are also my property, and you will give them to me when I ask.

I’ve recently discovered that porn is really damaging to my libido and EQ with real women (well, woman, since I’m married). It was never an issue before PE, but with the additional hours of porn during my PE routines, I’m becoming desensitized. I think it wouldn’t be so bad if I wasn’t watching hardcore depraved stuff. Do I really need to see a woman taking two massive dicks in her ass, one in her pussy, one in her mouth, and then licking the cum that dripped out of her ass off of a plate. Seriously, there’s a lot of nasty stuff out there that shouldn’t be hot but somehow is.

My new solution (as of a couple of days ago) is that I’ll only watch softcore porn for PE — strip tease kind of stuff — and limit masturbation to a few times a week. I’ve already noticed an increase in horniness and EQ, so I think this may be the right balance for me.


Starting (May 2010): BPEL:6" EG: 4 7/8". Current (April 2011): BPEL: 6 3/4" EG: 5 1/4".

Short Term Goal: BPEL: 7" EG: 5.25" Long Term Goal: When my wife makes me stop or 8"x6" (whichever comes first)

Bump. Been off my usual 2-3 hour porn binge before bed each night for 4 days. Getting semis walking around shopping malls, waking up with morning wood horny as. For me personally this really does make a big difference, fingers crossed I can keep at it.

In my other thread a comment was raised about going on a porn fast. To recap, I am really conscious of EQ to make sure I’m not over training. I was noticing with porn I’d get super rock hard but on my own not so much. I read the link provided and the idea of a porn fast really fascinated me. It warned of potential drop in libido and it could take 30-60 days for that to correct. I guess that must be for some serious porn addicts because it hasn’t turned out that way for me. I’m one week in. I haven’t watched any porn (used to JO to porn a few times a week) and haven’t JO’d either. I was really waiting for this drop in libido, but the opposite has happened. My libido is through the roof. The interesting thing is the morning hardon. The last two days I have been woken up in the middle of the night with a raging hardon that will not go down for hours. Not being able to do anything about it I just have to suck it up which the more I think about it the more it causes it to pulse and get even harder. The really interesting thing was that it happened yesterday morning, which was a day after a really intense PE work out. Usually the next morning after one of those it really doesn’t want to go full up. It prefers like 24 hours of recovery (hence the day off thing). However despite being the second day of a 2-day workout schedule and going pretty hard on it I could not get my wood to go down. That was a first for me and enjoying it.

I think it’s a combo of added EQ from the PE and the fasting. I wonder what i’ll be like at the end of this 30 day fast :) . Abstaining from porn is pretty easy. Abstaining from masturbating is another matter entirely.

How old are you AvgGuy? That probably has a lot to do with it. I too have never experienced any loss in libido during port fasts but I’m still under 30.

I’m 35. The people in the story was my age.

I generally use porn to get my PE sessions started, and, on the days I’m pumping, I use it to “keep things going” mentally during a pumping set. I have found that if I’m short on time, in a hurry, and/or just not into it mentally, thinking about mundane things like my to-do list at work, etc., I can actually lose a hard-on, or at least have the EQ diminish, even while in the tube, so the mental aspect is important to me. However, I have to agree with the wasted time assessment, because there have been many times that what should have been a 30-45 minute PE session has turned into an hour and a half or more. Isn’t the Internet an amazing place?

I think there is some merit to the points mentioned in the original post, but, on the other hand, the use of porn helped me de-personalize infidelity by a woman I was dating. She gave me the female version of the “she didn’t mean anything to me” speech. She said, “he was just a portable dick.” So I gave it some thought, watched a lot of porn, and decided that women in general could fall into the category of just being portable pussy, so why get all bent out of shape over how many people are using it, right? This may seem cynical to some, and definitely doesn’t help in the pursuit of improved intimacy, but it helped me deal with that situation, and has left me perhaps a little more jaded, but less vulnerable to emotional hurt in any future situations of that type that might arise.

I just wanted to contribute to this thread because recently I have came to the conclusion that I am addicted to porn. Whenever I’m bored or feeling down I tend to watch it. I also realize that it’s different from being addicted to masturbation b/c I don’t even jerk off to it. I just watch and it becomes hard to stop watching it.

So, I’ve been trying to stop completely and I can’t. I told myself recently I would stop for 1 week. Not watch anything. I think I made it through 3 days.lol

I have reduced my watching to only when I kegel which brings me to the question, does any1 watch porn or anything while they kegel? If not maybe I should stop there too.
