I’ve talked before about porn before, and occasionally come down hard on nofap but later said there was some legitimacy to it.
Porn I truly believe is an absolutely crushing addiction that affects likely over 90% of men and unknown amount of women. I was passing through a city where I started seeing signs about ‘65% of christian men struggle with porn’. There is undoubtedly low because they would have to either A: answer yes, or B: use it and decide they ‘struggle’ with it.
Regardless (((big money))) is interested in promoting the following:
Porn is normal/healthy
toys/degenerate sex is ok
More masturbation = good
Its ‘modern’ to explore new tastes
The problem with all of this is there is a lot of evidence that the more porn someone watches, the more they start to accept behaviors they once thought degenerate, namely gay sex is the biggest one.
It is actually not that big of a surprise, as porn tastes intensify, it starts with vanilla then within months can be gangbangs, anal, multiple insertions, cuckold, race mix (always white girl/black guy) then you turn into the typical numale redditor who wants his GF railed while you watch.
The whole nofap movement has its heart in the right place, but the ‘spree’ system encourages binges and not progress. You make it 30 days, now time to do it for 3x a day before you get so angry you do another 30. It encourages the addiction cycle. Further I think the REAL damage is porn, and quite frankly I’d rather see a guy jack off 1/week and never look at porn than do ’90 days no fap’ only to relapse into porn.
The real best way is to simply reduce your usage of porn. Go for something like 5x a month and go down from there.
