    "The greatest feeling you can get in a gym, or the most satisfying feeling you can get in the gym is... The Pump. Let's say you train your biceps. Blood is rushing into your muscles and that's what we call The Pump. You muscles get a really tight feeling, like your skin is going to explode any minute, and it's really tight - it's like somebody blowing air into it, into your muscle. It just blows up, and it feels really different. It feels fantastic.
    It's as satisfying to me as, uh..."

    YBOP does have studies directly about porn. And more and more research directly about porn has been coming out the last couple years that YBOP has added to their site.

    If the flat Earth website had a website that didn't have ads, and all proceeds went to charity for funding a flat Earth research, it would still be just as stupid.

    So why should this be any different?
    That's a fair point lol. Thing is... I doubt there's any flat earth site that get's anywhere near the traffic of YBOP that doesn't have any revenue building aspect.

    YBOP not having ads and donating all their book sale profit just makes it more trustworthy.


    Regardless of whether or not Gary is a good person, his platform is silly, and so are you. Doesn't make you bad people, just kind of dumb.
    There have been a bunch of people in this thread who have said quitting porn has benefited their life. I have probably gotten over a thousand comments on my videos from people likewise.

    There is SO MUCH DUMB **** in this world, and you call me and Gary dumb when we are legit helping tons of people?

    The large majority of the population does not have an addiction to internet porn, but a small minority (yourself included) has VERY catastrophic issues with their own addictive personality.
    Pornhub is the 7th most viewed website in America. (source: https://www.similarweb.com/top-websites/united-states) Porn addicts is not a small majority.

    Also, people who aren't addicted who quit say they experience benefits too.

    Like I said previously in this thread, everyone who I've heard of who takes a 60 day+ break from porn say life is better without it. Stronger erections, better sex-life, more attraction to mates, more energy, better focus, more drive (dopamine related stuff, etc.)

    This isn't just about addiction.


    The basis of the website is such that PORN is bad for you, when all the studies on the website are discussing ADDICTION.
    Why are you spreading misinformation? There are lots of studies directly about porn on YBOP.

    Also, this is still relatively new to the scientific community. More and more studies will be coming I'm sure. It took awhile for the science on cigarettes to come out.

    I honestly don't see how anyone can deny that fapping and porn are bad for you.. Maybe once a week isn't bad but everyday is probably robbing you of your full potential as a man srs.. I don't need studies or science to tell me any of this chit, just try any strenuous exercise after 1 month of no fap and try it again after fapping everyday for a while.. There is 100% a huge difference, too big to be placebo.

    bro i like you but when you finally get a gf how are you going to explain to her that you spent your 20s making masturbation videos?

    you're good looking by the way. you are wasting your life with this ****. you could easily live a normal life but instead you waste it. you have admitted in the past that you've never had a gf, a job, and are depressed. pull yourself together bro before it's too late. it's sad to watch because you obvisly have potential

    I've been married 20 years and I know a single couple that actually have a sex life. Why arent they having sex? They arent having sex because they are desperate for it and its unattractive or they are with someone that is with them for secondary means (example gold diggers). The reality is that sex CONTROLS almost 100% of men. Men must transcend it...

    I dont believe I truly became a man until I was able to rise above the only thing that really controlled me which was sex. I am no longer manipulated by it and this brings clarity and peace that I've never had.

    ...and lets be real tea, my wife is pretty cool chick. She wasnt controlling me with sex in many instances. She never really used it as a bargaining tool. In many instances I was controlling myself and the decisions I made with sex based upon my own preconceived notions. "If I do this for her, I will get this"...A lot of my decisions were disingenuous and I was living a lie.

    No more...I am the master of my ship. Having sex or not having sex no longer play into the equation. I've learned that no matter what you do it doesnt drive real sexual attraction. The only thing that drives true sexual attraction is a person being genuinely attracted to who you are. If they dont find you as a person attractive they are faking it as a means to seek money, notoriety, excitement. Its better that you be yourself and they LEAVE as a response than to focus on this vanity....

    But men will keep hustling, they will keep try to please women, they will continue to make poor decisions all in the name of sex. They will drag themselves down to doom because they are weak and flawed. They will allow a biological urge to be their master and make them a slave.

    Exactly, another instant gratification tool in a World over flowing with them. All these instant gratification tools (porn, smoking, drinking, binge eating) are sympathetic fixes. They reroute you away from the underlying issue and create a quick fix, or what feels like a quick fix - until it begins spiralling out of control.

    Of course everyone's threshold is different - biological differences are a given. But I will retort that the majority of people who I know who have cultivated a sense of 'awareness' have gone through the fires and have given up or are working towards shunning most quick fixes in our society. This isn't a hard and fast rule, just something that seems to well up more often than not. But again, everyone's capacity for awareness is different and I do my best to place as little judgement as possible alongside this fact.

    Porn is not a friend. It is not a monster for many, but there are too many examples of people being tarnished by it to not think of it as something more than a low-level disturbance.

    So sad how backwards our society is.

    However, I seriously think humanity is due for a new "sexual revolution".

    There is hope. I honestly think through the internet more and more people will wake up to what's healthy and fulfilling.

    Karezza, tantra practices, meditation, etc.

    Lots of people are starting to wake up.

    I have a heart condition right now that the specialists only want to address with pills . Unfortunately I have ED and couldn’t do anything with a sloot if I wanted to , and to make things worse , viagra and the other two options have a conflict with my heart medication which would most likely kill me according to the specialist.
    So imo there’s not much of a point having a sloot if you can’t fk her.

    I was socially awkward and still scored back in the day . But things have really changed for the young guys now .
    The Chads are doing most of the screwing , and nowadays sloots would sooner share a Chad than date a Timmy .
    Timmies can get married however,but the sloot will divorce rape him as soon as she has the opportunity, and then seek Chad and Tyrone .
    Also one thing I’ve noticed about sloots, they’d sooner be beat to death than bored to death.
    That’s why studies are showing sloots prefer men with psychopathic personality’s . I knew this all along, but apparently their just figuring this chit out now

    I stopped jacking to porn the day i realized the truth. The day the truth slapped me across the face. Its the most cucked thing in the entire world.....theres nothing more cucked than watching a video of a guy fuking a girl and your jacking off by imagining yourself in his role....When i stopped jacking off due to that realization of how pathetic it is my life has improved tenfold. I realized when i was watching it i couldnt even get off with just women videos. There has to be a man fuking for me to get hard. Just really sad and pathetic but everyone watches it so its ok.

    Anyway, I feel better about myself bc i no longer crave watching stepmom videos or stepsister...I now get off seeing my girlfriend orgasm and squirt like crazy and seeing her eyes go chaotic...that sht, that real sht gets me harder and turned on than any fuking degenerate sick ass video ever did. I used to nut watching porn just dripping it out like a pathetic loser...now when i bust nuts i literally go for distance. I aim for her tits and it goes over her head like a cannon. Theres nothing better, feels completely natural and i feel a lot better about myself. Didnt truly realize how bad porn was ruining my self esteem.

    Like I said previously in this thread, everyone who I've heard of who takes a 60 day+ break from porn say life is better without it. Stronger erections, better sex-life, more attraction to mates, more energy, better focus, more drive (dopamine related stuff, etc.)

    This isn't just about addiction.




    Why are you spreading misinformation? There are lots of studies directly about porn on YBOP.

    Also, this is still relatively new to the scientific community. More and more studies will be coming I'm sure. It took awhile for the science on cigarettes to come out.
    Again, I'm not trying to be a dik, but you generally are spreading misinformation. The reason why I called you and Gary dumb has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not your intentions are good. It's actually not an insult to the kindness of your heart (and you don't seem like a bad dude).

    The large majority (if not all) YBOP's studies are about addiction, sexual addiction, and porn addiction. None of them are based on average adult males or females who view porn sparingly, and thusly, the outcomes and results of the studies would have little to no real effect on those of us who aren't sex addicts, porn addicts, or have addictive personalities.

    That's the point.

    I watch porn, and I have a very high sex drive. Not only do I have a very high sex drive, but I am very motivated as a person. I spend A LOT of time on activities that are specifically geared toward self-improvement and obtaining new skills. Further, I'm probably one of the more prolific members of this forum spreading positivity where I can.

    However, I am a HUGE STICKLER for misguided advice, like yours, so I am going to call you out.

    I didn't need to stop watching porn to start making improvements to my life. Theoretically, the amount of time porn should consume in your life is the following:

    -The time it takes you to find a video
    -The time it takes to finish


    No longer than this.

    And if you are spending upward of 15 minutes making any of this happen, perhaps you're spending too much time on it.

    But with that being said:

    There are DOZENS of hours that you may waste on THOUSANDS of things that are SIGNIFICANTLY more detrimental to your life.

    I would argue that if your room is messy, and you do ANYTHING ELSE but clean your room... You are using your time inadequately.

    And that's just a VERY small, and VERY apparent example of how we do these things to ourselves. Here is what I mean;

    If you want to improve your life; instead of cutting out a minor activity, cut out the major ones that take a big chunk of your time but lead to nothing. You're playing video games, but you haven't done any of your wash? You're working on getting a certificate for your next licensure at work, but you're not setting aside time to study after work? You're in a disagreement with a loved one, but you're doing things other than addressing it?

    It's all bull**** like that, but we fuk around and miss out on it.

    Cutting out porn isn't some magical thing that's gonna teach you how to address life's problems... Actually addressing them is.

    So you can preach your "cut out porn watch your depression clear up!" rah rah bull****, or you can address the root of the problem.

    But until you address the root of them problem and actually make an effort to work on the REAL problems in your life...

    You're just talking about bull****.


    For most people it's not porn that is the problem, it's them, and the life they have built for themselves.

    -If I have $10,000 in debt, don't advise me to stop watching porn, teach me how to be financially intelligent.
    -If I have anger issues, bring me to counseling so I can learn more effective ways to deal with my anger.
    -If I have no friends, show me how to connect with strangers so that I can make friends.
    -If I am depressed, show me techniques to channel my depression or direct me to counseling.
    -If I am not performing well at work, help me establish goals for myself both inside and outside of work so I can proceed with renewed vigor and actually perform better.

    ^Porn is not the root cause of any of these things, nor will stopping the use of it solve any of those problems.

    Thanks for coming to my TED talk. Like I said, I'm not trying to disparage you, and I'm not calling you a bad person. Just trying to let you know that your whole premise is mired in psuedo-science, misrepresentation of studies, and a general lack of information.

The reality is that sex CONTROLS almost 100% of men. Men must transcend it...

    I dont believe I truly became a man until I was able to rise above the only thing that really controlled me which was sex. I am no longer manipulated by it and this brings clarity and peace that I've never had.

    ...and lets be real tea, my wife is pretty cool chick. She wasnt controlling me with sex in many instances. She never really used it as a bargaining tool. In many instances I was controlling myself and the decisions I made with sex based upon my own preconceived notions. "If I do this for her, I will get this"...A lot of my decisions were disingenuous and I was living a lie.

    No more...I am the master of my ship. Having sex or not having sex no longer play into the equation. I've learned that no matter what you do it doesnt drive real sexual attraction. The only thing that drives true sexual attraction is a person being genuinely attracted to who you are. If they dont find you as a person attractive they are faking it as a means to seek money, notoriety, excitement. Its better that you be yourself and they LEAVE as a response than to focus on this vanity....

    But men will keep hustling, they will keep try to please women, they will continue to make poor decisions all in the name of sex. They will drag themselves down to doom because they are weak and flawed. They will allow a biological urge to be their master and make them a slave.
    Nicely said: Most men are controlled by the pussy...

    Quitting porn and taking control of one's dick is very empowering. If a guy can't stay away from a computer screen of virtual girls... imagine when he's in a relationship with a real women. He'll probably get desperate for sex rather than having control and self-discipline.

    Quitting porn is a foundation for a guy to take back control over his dick. A man with sexual discipline is powerful.

    Of course everyone's threshold is different - biological differences are a given. But I will retort that the majority of people who I know who have cultivated a sense of 'awareness' have gone through the fires and have given up or are working towards shunning most quick fixes in our society. This isn't a hard and fast rule, just something that seems to well up more often than not. But again, everyone's capacity for awareness is different and I do my best to place as little judgement as possible alongside this fact.

    Porn is not a friend. It is not a monster for many, but there are too many examples of people being tarnished by it to not think of it as something more than a low-level disturbance.
    Extremely well said. Thumbs up. Repped.

    Being on our smartphones, internet surfing, youtube, netflix, tv... so many distractions everywhere.

    We live in a world where businesses are trying to get our attention. They do whatever they can to get us hooked. And then they make bank with ad money.

    So much of modern society is us being cucks to big businesses.

    Pretty sure humanity will survive. Just live your life how you want OP and stop worrying about humanity. Trust me, it’s learned to take care of itself long before you or I
    Yes, agreed. I'm not sharing from a place of need. I enjoy talking about this topic. And it gives me fulfillment.

    However, would you say the same to MLK, or any person who has tried to create positive change in the world? "Don't worry MLK, the world will take care of itself."

    The reason the world and humanity has kept going is because good people have tried to share their perspectives and have worked hard for what's right and good. (that being said some people believe they are "doing good work" but are actually ignorant and causing harm, so always gotta be careful)

I used to nut watching porn just dripping it out like a pathetic loser...now when i bust nuts i literally go for distance. I aim for her tits and it goes over her head like a cannon. Theres nothing better, feels completely natural and i feel a lot better about myself. Didnt truly realize how bad porn was ruining my self esteem.
    Respect for quitting porn. Watching porn is like hiding in a closet and fapping to a couple having sex while spying on them. It's extremely odd when you start to think about it.

    Have you ever gone 90 days without porn Nirvash? Yes porn effects everyone to different intensities. I am probably on the more extreme end and you're probably on the more mild end. But I bet if you went 90 days without porn with a truly open mind (not a I'm going to try this just to prove the pornfree people wrong), you would experience benefits and would have a better life.

    I challenge you to that experiment if you've never done so.

    I think every person I've talked to who defends porn hasn't even tried to abstain for a period...

    I have. There's legitimately a reason why I'm opposing your point;

    Not watching porn does not solve your problems.

    Solving your problems solves your problems.

    -Show me a man with $10,000+ in debt, who stopped watching porn, and found his debt mysteriously vanished.
    -Show me a man who was having familial issues, and stopped watching porn, and immediately found that he and his family we ready to bury the hatchet.

    If you want to argue that not watching porn will give you more time to solve your problems, fine, I'll concede--if you stop watching porn you might magically find 15 extra minutes in your day.

    A few years back, I had an SO who believed that watching porn was basically cheating. While I didn't agree with the notion, I did concede to it because I understood where she was coming from. I figured I'd be no worse off, and no better off for it. I spent two years not watching it. In the end, I was no better off, and no more motivated. During that time, I slacked off more than ever (I was already a big slacker), and actually dropped out of college. I also noticed a drop in my sex drive, as I had begun to masturbate less frequently.

    I had actual problems, but I spent zero time addressing them. Coincidentally, not watching porn (and not masturbating by effect) did absolutely nothing to change my situation.

    My point is as follows; if you want to do real good in the world, advise brahs how to actually solve their problems. Advise brahs how to stop putting women on pedestals. Advise brahs how to be financially intelligent. Advise brahs how to craft interesting and well rounded lives.

    All of that would serve them much better.

    Amazing that people defend porn. I always though jerking it to porn is like smoking. You do it knowing it's bad for you, but defending it makes you look like a moron.

    Guess the Coomer meme is real.

    Was never really into 'pro' porn. I mainly just go to reddit /ass /gonewild , it's mainly just nudes and rear glute spreads, and no, they're not landwhales.

    millions of years of evolution have conditioned women to seek dominant violent men to mate with so they have strong offpring. only in the last few hundred years has marriage been a thing. Women have always snuck off to shag caveman Chad in the dark of night, before DNA no one knew whos babie it was, so tribes would group raise all children together.... ladies would throw miscers a bone occasionally so they would think they may possibly be the father. If in doubt, everyone has an interest in raising kid.

    Almost everyones grandmother had a gangbang. Hard to grasp, but its true. All women are sloots, since dawn of time.

    It seems more and more young men are openly against porn, which is great. Not to sound anti-semitic but I don't think porn is healthy, I cut it out when I felt I had a mild addiction.

    Solving your problems solves your problems.

    -Show me a man with $10,000+ in debt, who stopped watching porn, and found his debt mysteriously vanished.
    -Show me a man who was having familial issues, and stopped watching porn, and immediately found that he and his family we ready to bury the hatchet.

    If you want to argue that not watching porn will give you more time to solve your problems, fine, I'll concede--if you stop watching porn you might magically find 15 extra minutes in your day.

    A few years back, I had an SO who believed that watching porn was basically cheating. While I didn't agree with the notion, I did concede to it because I understood where she was coming from. I figured I'd be no worse off, and no better off for it. I spent two years not watching it. In the end, I was no better off, and no more motivated. During that time, I slacked off more than ever (I was already a big slacker), and actually dropped out of college. I also noticed a drop in my sex drive, as I had begun to masturbate less frequently.

    I had actual problems, but I spent zero time addressing them. Coincidentally, not watching porn (and not masturbating by effect) did absolutely nothing to change my situation.

    My point is as follows; if you want to do real good in the world, advise brahs how to actually solve their problems. Advise brahs how to stop putting women on pedestals. Advise brahs how to be financially intelligent. Advise brahs how to craft interesting and well rounded lives.

    All of that would serve them much better.
    There are tens of thousands of reports of guys on reddit nofap, reddit pornfree, and various other websites and forums (including a bunch of posts in this thread) that when people stop watching porn... they experience tons of benefits. More attraction from women, more energy to put into their goals, more focus, less depression, less brain fog, etc. etc.

    For some, simply quitting porn changes their life quite a bit.

    It's yin and yang. Ideally someone quits porn AND directly confronts their problems obviously. Both at the same time. So I agree with you. But you are completely disregarding the benefits of not looking at porn.

    This is not just about extra time, but having a more healthy brain.

    I'm guessing when you took a break from porn you were in a bad relationship at that time (or something else bad in your life), and the negatives of that relationship were more than the benefits of not looking at porn for you. Like I said, porn effects everyone to different extremes. It sounds like it effects you more mildly than 95% of guys. But just because you're an outlier to that extreme doesn't mean you should disregard the benefits that HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of guys are talking about from abstaining.

    Porn creates changes in the dopamine system and prefrontal cortex.
