No Fap November?

No Shave November is a well-known and understood tradition...

i'm copying this from another forum i frequent.

Quote:
Young men in their 20s apparently have no groove in bed and it's all because they're addicted to pornography, according to a report in Psychology Today. But the problem is much more serious than simply either being good or bad in the sack, it's a physiological issue causing a new generation of men to lose their libidos 30 years sooner than expected.
How did this happen?
According to the report, overexposure to sexually explicit images and video have caused men to lose interest in ordinary sexual encounters including experiences with a real woman:
Today's users can force [their] release by watching porn in multiple windows, searching endlessly, fast-forwarding to the bits they find hottest, switching to live sex chat, viewing constant novelty, firing up their mirror neurons with video action and cam-2-cam, or escalating to extreme genres and anxiety-producing material. It's all free, easy to access, available within seconds, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
After a period of time, excessive porn watchers overstimulate a neurochemical in their bodies called dopamine the drive behind every "want" and "desire" that humans feel we need to "overcome." But with your libido in constant drive mode, your dopamine reaction will become numb and, eventually, you won't be aroused by the same experiences as before.
This occurrence is similar to veteran drug-users describing their need for stronger mind-inducing chemicals in order to receive the same "high" they once had. In the same way, porn-addicted men will need more extreme sexual experiences to feel the same kind of arousal.
It's an endless cycle and if you think Viagra will help, you're wrong.
Sexual-enhancement drugs work by breaking down a blood vessel dilator called cGMP and this is what causes an erection. If your libido is over worked, the drugs can only cause a physical erection, but a pleasurable sensation cannot be achieved.
The only cure is to avoid internet erotica at all costs, but this will be "one of the most difficult things you've ever done," says the study.
In order to have "normal" sex again, a "reboot" period six to 12 weeks is needed by completely letting go of your pornographic nature. Addicts can experience a temporary loss of libido altogether as well as "insomnia, irritability, panic, despair, concentration problems, and even flu-like symptoms."

Your link doesn't work...

What qualifies one as a porn-addict?
Once a week? Multiple times a week? Once a day? a million times a day?

The article recommends 6 - 12 weeks though. That's November, December, and January.

A long time to go with no fapping!

no self-stimulation. if the whole point is to improve your sex life, how would forbidding sex acts performed by others make sense? i'd say no hand-jobs, but those are for 16 year olds anyway.

Nonsense, if and only if you find that in some marathon fap session you have rubbed yourself raw so to speak, is the only time for a self imposed fap stoppage

This is potentially TMI but...

Almost two years ago I used to not be able to get off during sex. I was so used to the daily fap routine that I just didn't get the same levels of stimulation from the real thing. At first I thought it was a gift; I'm guaranteed to get her off and I'm fucking like a porn star. Nope, turns out that there is such a thing as lasting too long. Eventually the girl thinks it's her fault that she's not turning you on. Getting me off started becoming the focus/worry every time we had sex. Also, the girl was shit at sex. Didn't do a thing. Prob contributed.

Fast forward to now (plus the past few months) and I noticed I had the same issue again, despite the fact that my current gf is ten times better at sex plus way better looking. I could get off easier, but it still took longer than normal. Decided not to fap at ALL for two months straight. Limited it to just sex. Now I can get off in ten mins and I'm actually happy that it's so much quicker.

TL;DR - Quick fapping and you'll have more fun in bed. Lasting more than 30-45 mins is not a plus contrary to what porn might have you think.

This is an awesome thread... no, really. A topic all of us can relate to (Cept you skinny and sarah)

Probably more TMI on my behalf..


Obviously the study conducted is pretty much the truth.. looking at porn makes most girls look really really shitty. I try to avoid it all together.. Doug's fap thread is my substitute when needed.


As far as self stimulation w/o porn:

There is a happy median here... I personally don't really advocate not jerking off for 12 weeks. At that rate, you'd be a fucking cannon in the bedroom (within the first 5 mins).

Moderated masturbation is a known tool to aid you in the bedroom, specifically with longevity. As you said, years end (pretty much nailed it on the head), too much can make you a walking fuck machine. Thats all fine and gravy till you give you girl anxiety and make your dick raw with every session of sex.

I guess finding that particular #/week is obviously different on an individual basis. Finding that number, however, takes practice.... lolllllllll

i think you guys are getting it wrong, it say no porn for 6-12 weeks. No fapping would cause the rate of murders, road rage, etc to go up exponentially
