    once went about 7 weeks without porn or fapping and you feel awesome, much more confident and such, and believe me its not a placebo.

    btw that graph showing that testosterone increase over 7 days and then it drops rapidly is bullshit so stop posting it. This whole thing is related to dopamine, not testosterone, and theres no "7 day cycle" either.

    To add on:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1...ubmed_RVDocSum
    "These data demonstrate that acute abstinence does not change the neuroendocrine response to orgasm but does produce elevated levels of testosterone in males"

    http://www.springerlink.com/content/ex81g84768642505/
    "The authors found that the fluctuations of testosterone levels from the 2nd to 5th day of abstinence were minimal. On the 7th day of abstinence, however, a clear peak of serum testosterone appeared, reaching 145.7% of the baseline (P<0.01). No regular fluctuation was observed following continuous abstinence after the peak."

    Not to mention that masturbating all the time really limits your sexual desire. Takes a full week to recover the jizz you blow in one load.

    This, actually, is true. I'm quite a regular wanker and I get my fair share of sex once in a while, and, well, fapping has created several problems.

    If your girlfriend requires constant gifting then you have a bad girlfriend. That kinda implies you're exchanging items for sex. Might as well hire a hooker then.

    Haven't that been established long time ago already?

    Notice how title says "fapping to porn". So does it mean fapping to something else is ok?
    Watching a lot of porn desensitizes you just like watching lots of gore movies or similar.
    So to actually get properly aroused, you'll have to experience something more "sexy" than what you're used to.
    If you watch softcore porn all day long for example, a sight of a naked girl might not arouse you anymore but anything more "extreme" will.

    In the nutshell, it's all about moderation, really.

    Is there any evidence for that? I mean, it isn't like someone starts out wanking to playboy pictures and eventually moves on to watching hardcore BDSM.

    It's the case for many people. You get used to it, and it turn it doesn't turn you on as much.

    You can't just say "It's the case for many people". Yea, it might happen sometimes, it might not. Is it an actual phenomena that's been documented?

    I mean, sociologists and psychologists would eat that sort of shit up, if it's true there has to be scholarly sources on it.

    That was the exact reason I worded it like that. I've read many people complaining about it, but I don't know if there is anything specifying the reason or any of that shit. I just tell what I have experienced.

    I wasn't trying to present you evidence, just offer my opinion on it

    It isn't? Are you sure about that? Have you ever known a porn addict?

    Is there any evidence for that?
    Countless scientific studies have been done on this topic, but I believe the best evidence for this is the way porn industry have evolved year after year.
    All big porn companies state every year that they're going to produce movies with even more extreme content to satisfy their customers.
    It's because the said customers get desensitized over time and require more stimulating imagery to get aroused.
    I think the gore comparison is very fitting in this case. If you ever seen a picture of a mutilated corpse, it will probably shock and/or disgust you but if you see pictures like that often and a lot, they will cease shocking you. If you know someone who visits 4chan a lot, ask them about that. I have a friend who visit 4chan a lot and he confirmed that.

    "Desensitizing" is a real thing, look it up.

    Yes. You can fap to your imagination. Unless you have a ridiculously short attention span, you will probably imagine one fantasy.

    The video is just saying you shouldn't scroll through a tab of 500 images of tits, because your dopamine is jacking up every time you get to the next one, which means it will start to decrease faster. If it decreases faster, without binging on images or women, you will lose your sexual excitement faster with a single sexual partner.

    Desensitizing is a real thing, but you haven't provided any evidence that it correlates with sexuality at all. Getting used to seeing a dead body is different than getting used to seeing hardcore rape scenes.

    You can't just say "Science has been done on this"

    Because then I can say "Well science has proven that the moon is made of cheese". Saying there is evidence is not the same as providing it.

    And btw if you want anecdotal evidence then I disprove your hypothesis. I've watched porn for years and never got into anything hardcore. I watch the same porn I watched when I was 13.

    Desensitizing also includes porn.
    it includes EVERYTHING, since when you get "satisfied" by masturbating (example), the brain releases rewarding chemicals.
    But the erotic content needs to be more and more extreme (so to say) to trigger it.
    Just like how hardcore drug addicts needs a bigger and/or stronger dose after the last one.

    Google around, there's actually a couple of articles on the Internet about it, and i'd like you to debunk it.

    And btw if you want anecdotal evidence then I disprove your hypothesis. I've watched porn for years and never got into anything hardcore. I watch the same porn I watched when I was 13.

    Your experience =/= everybody else's experience
    Just like how some people gets easier addicted to things than others.
    Same can be said about how often they'd have to ramp up the dose in order to get the desired amount of satisfaction.

    It kinda makes sense, if you get bored of something you go looking for something that excites you.
    That's only relevant if something gets boring to you obviously.
