10 Reasons to Quit Porn Now

 

 

I love it when Men’s Mag’s discuss the issue of pornography from a masculine perspective. We don’t have to get into the is it good, is it bad, the moral debate, free speech, censorship – what we can do is look in the mirror and ask ourselves is porn enhancing our lives, our masculinity, our relationships . . or not . . . is it brining more love into our lives . . . or less . . .

GQ, a popular men’s magazine recently tackled this issue. In this video I’m going to share with you GQ’s 10 reasons to stop watching porn.

A recent survey of a Reddit community called NoFap, which is committed to abstaining from porn and masturbation, has helped researchers open the door to a better understanding of the effects of pornography on our lives.

 

While none of the results are conclusive, there are certainly some statistics that should give a moment’s pause. Here are some of the highlights of why it may be a good idea to stick to Netflix next time you open up your laptop:

 

1. For those addicted to porn, arousal actually declined with the same mate, while those who regularly found different mates were able to continual their arousal. It’s known as the Coolidge Effect, or novelty-seeking behavior. Porn, after all, trains the viewer to expect constant newness.

 

2. One in five people who regularly watch porn admitted to feeling controlled by their own sexual desires.

 

3. 12 percent of NoFappers report watching 5 or more hours of Internet porn every week. 59 percent report watching between 4 and 15(!!) hours of porn every week.

 

4. Almost 50 percent of those on NoFap have never had sex in their lives, meaning their only experience with intimacy is purely digital.

 

5. 42 percent of male college students report visiting porn sites regularly.

 

6. 53 percent of the NoFappers developed a regular porn habit between the ages of 12 and 14. An alarming 16 percent said they started watching before they were 12.

 

7. 64 percent report that their tastes in porn have become more extreme or deviant.

 

8. Among 27-31 year olds on NoFap: 19 percent suffer from premature ejaculation, 25 percent are disinterested in sex with their partner, 31 percent have difficulty reaching orgasm, and 34 percent experience erectile dysfunction.

 

9. After committing to no masturbation/porn, 60 percent of those on NoFap felt that their sexual functions had improved.

 

10. And 67 percent had an increase in energy levels as well as productivity.
