I have self control, but I forget things very easily. By tomorrow I'll be fapping with good conscience, not remembering this.
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.
"These data demonstrate that acute abstinence does not change the neuroendocrine response to orgasm but does produce elevated levels of testosterone in males"
"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."
I feel like this is true to an extent. I beat off a lot, and when I'm actually with a girl it's difficult to stay hard th entire time. Or I have to go HAM to actually get off.
My hand still needs less gifts than a girlfriend would demand.
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.
Switch to your left hand once in a while. Feels like a different vagina.
dont trust a ginger
I actually think this is kinda true... Fuck.
Notice how title says "fapping to porn". So does it mean fapping to something else is ok?
Haven't that been established long time ago already?
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.
Fap once a week, it'll feel amazing and is the healthiest.
Sadly, I already have erectile dysfunction.
I wish I would have never read this
I mean, sociologists and psychologists would eat that sort of shit up, if it's true there has to be scholarly sources on it.
I wasn't trying to present you evidence, just offer my opinion on it
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.
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.
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.
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.
