Most of the people's whose lives would improve from not watching porn or masturbating are porn addicts who spend entirely too much time browsing pornography on the web, so of course their life improves but that doesn't at all mean not masturbating is actually the cause of the improvement.
Masturbation is healthy and important, just don't watch porn religiously, some people recommend not to watch it at all but YourBrainonPorn website is trash and NoFap is just stupid/a placebo
I think it began as a meme, but then people joined thinking it was for real, and now it has achieved this near religious status. Any improvements are pure placebo though, things you could achieve without no-fap if you had a decent self-control or whatever.
I'm not saying it will or won't but for me it kind of drove me crazy last year when I tried it. When I wasn't masturbating I started to obsess over porn and masturbation. Like I became so overwhelmed I couldn't focus on anything and then I got really bad intrusive thoughts about sex.
Honestly i'd say go for it unless you have OCD or anxiety.
Odd how there seems to be a correlation between redditors/4chan users and having to perform stupid rituals just to get laid. Chad isn't abstaining from busting a nut to attract women, but fedoras have to discipline themselves in hopes women will notice them?
That shit doesn't matter, at least by working out or actually do something you stand more of a chance of being noticed
too high of a life quality will spoil you as a person. plenty of fatass junk food eating high school dropouts have a fantastic life quality if we're judging by who avoids the greatest amount of difficulty.
>>26225210 >Jerking off daily ties into a lack of self control and an addiction to instant gratification Nah, the most alpha guy I knows wife says he jerks off multiple times in a given day. If you're a loser touching or not touching yourself isn't going to have an impact
>>26225241 pavlovian conditioning is real. you are preparing yourself to get off, in front of your computer, with your own hand, exclusively, and when a real female shows up you won't know what to do, so you'll blame it on her when she reads that you're entirely clammed up and not really interested in sleeping on her.
>>26225253 >Am more comfortable around those of the opposite sex. In a way, it seems to radiate off of me onto them. Without trying, I think I make girls horny. at least half of the girls I walk by start to A) play with their hair or B) look down to the ground. A) means they are sexually attracted, B) means they are nervous and are thinking of something to say, but can't. There are girls with boyfriends i've talked to who talk to me like they don't have a boyfriend. I find this especially funny, mainly because i'm only 21, have never had sex... I haven't even had a first kiss. They probably would think otherwise if I asked... I'm not mad though, in due time I guess.
>>26225407 >the cure for mental illness is stop jerking off I think you over estimate how many people on this board are genuinely mentally ill to begin with but the discussion is about NoFap which is recommended as a cure all for everyone and their momma.
Since my lust didn't had an outlet it kept swirling inside and giving me all kinds of conflicting emotions. I thought I fell in love with a trashy single mother (I was about to pay for her kids). I started to get all emotional and bitchy. I was procrastinating a lot thinking all the time about getting a gf.
Then I saw pic related and I felt like a dumbass. Fapped and went back to being to my usual less naive self.
>>26225486 There's a difference between having a woman allow you to mess with her vagina, touching it or fucking it or whatever, and a girl who /wants/ you to fuck her.
You can live your whole life in your room, faggot. Why not become a work-at-home network administrator ordering groceries and weed to your door while making sure sunlight doesn't touch 80% of the inside? Why not take the easy way out?
The answer is that people here aren't interested in just getting pussy as a physical sensation. We've all orgasmed 1000s of times. Pussy is warm, wet and snug around it, feels natural. The sensation is nothing like the experience, like the victory of taking a legitimate normal girl who's into you home to have sex.
No one cares if a whore lets you rent her out, you tool. It's bigger than that.
That's the key. To finally make you desperate enough to conquer your fear and JUST ASK. What's better is that it's internal. You didn't need a stacy or a chad to give you a condescending smile while building you up, you solved your shit internally and now you're hitting on girls.
>>26225604 Stay mad, pissbaby. The desperation works, you actually do go for your own age. Shocking, I know. Maybe you should conquer your own weird complex and stop projecting your worthlessness on other Robots.
>>26225543 Same feelings, once did no-fap for ten days, on the tenth day I saw a girl with a really hot body in skimpy clothes and almost wanted to just walk up to her and do the deed. I panicked and quickly went home, jerked it off to the thought and afterwards everything was fine.
I try to maintain a routine of roughly ~four days without fapping and then once or twice, feels way better than doing it every day and I can easily hold out for a few days too.
