There are several studies showing how porn surfing fucks your brain up. And it's not that doing it at all is wrong or bad for you, but rather with high speed internet the ability to view multiple different scenarios/women in real time (think 15 tabs open in your incognito browser) has the phenomena of fucking your dopamine receptors. Each time you open and are excited by one of those, your brain releases dopamine because it is associating the event with having sex with a new woman, which is an evolutionary trait that releases dopamine. So for the guy mentioning that ancient Greeks looked at porn and jerked off, you're not wrong, but it is a completely different scenario. You fuck your brain up by looking through different videos for an hour, and it's pretty well documented.

If anything, just pick one and stick to it I guess. Or do whatever the fuck you want, but as a fellow OG brethren I would suggest you at least look into what I'm saying, because science is backing it and I found it to be true even before learning about the science behind it.

How is this different than checking a thread you created for responses? Or likes on a post of Facebook or Instagram? Or karma on reddit?

Because your brain considers watching porn to be engaging in Sex from a chemical perspective. The others are compulsive behavior, and probably not healthy, but its not the same thing chemically.

Sexual stimuli is the most "rewarding" thing your brain can experience naturally (in other words, releases the most dopamine). By looking at clip after clip, you're fucking your brains baseline of healthy chemicals, and weakining the receptors associated with those chemicals.

Again, I'm not saying porn is bad, or that I'm opposed to it morally. What is objectively bad for you is watching clip after clip in the same session. If it didn't fuck up the way I feel then I would have never stopped.

Whatever anyone thinks about the subject, there are enough scientific studies to show that is bad for your brain. What do you stand to lose by quitting for one week and trying to make an honest assesment of how you feel after that? It's made a world of difference in my life, I only post this because it might help someone else, I'm not just trying to be right for internet points.

100%. My friend was telling me he had some ED issues and low sex drive. He cut out p0rn/no fap. 30 days later he said he had morning wood every morning again, 90 days later sex drive was back to how he was when he was in his teens. Guy is only in his late 30s, maybe early 40s now. Its called Porn Induced ED. Look it up

Sprawl'n'Stall - Anyone older than 30 recall watching porn for the first on his computer or phone?

It felt extra weird and awkward to me. Forced. Now it's the only way I do it - computer mostly in my case. I still fap in my bed with no "visual aid", but rarely to completion and not nearly as much as I used to. I "need" porn in that sense.


I watch porn maybe 2-3times a day and I can still jack it without porn.

 

I just remember some good sex I had with a chick in the past.

 

Porn does not effect my sex drive at all. If anything it keeps me loyal to my GF as she cant change who she is. Shes a nicely shaped black chick. If I'm horny for a white girl I'll watch porn of a white chick or remember a white girl I fucked.

Keeps me from going out and trying to find a white girl to fuck.

I think it only matters when it becomes a problem of performance. ED, low libdo etc.

looked it up and it seems like they are grasping at straws for the reason they have ED.

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/317117.php

"The research on porn-induced erectile dysfunction is mixed, with some studies supporting this connection and others arguing that pornography might actually help with ED"

"Other studies that find a link between pornography and erectile dysfunction uncover only a weak connection.

Well apparently we should view jerking off like how we view drugs at this point. Some people can do it sometimes and enjoy it, and those people don't start sucking dick for it and start blaming other people. Then we have people that can't control themselves. Do all the heroine. Watch all the incest scat pr0n. They start to define it as a disease. Instead of you just accepting they're being a weak idiot and SOMETIMES you should put the cheeseburger down.
