– – relationships
– – etc.
– The criminality of the porn industry
– Benefits of quitting
– How to quit
Porn is one of the greatest, but most overlooked, problems of the modern world. It is impossible to overstate how big of an issue pornography is. It is evil, and so are the people responsible for creating this industry. If you’re in doubt, keep reading.
SOME BASIC STATS:
25% of all daily web searches are pornographic.
The average age that most people first see pornography is 11 years old.
As of 2017, children under the age of 10 make up 22% of online porn consumption for under 18s.
Remember those statistics, because you’re gonna learn how much regular pornography usage can damage an adult’s mind, let alone the developing mind of a child.
How do you know if you’re addicted?
If you tell yourself things like “I can quit any time I just don’t want to,” or if you try to quit and fail after 2 or 3 days, or if you can’t go longer than 1 or 2 weeks without watching porn/fapping. The internet (and MSM) will tell you that you are only addicted if you watch porn in situations like at work or in public. Bullshit. That’s EXTREME addiction.
Go by this measure instead: If you can’t even go 3 weeks without watching porn or fapping then you are an addict.
Porn addicts regularly suffer from anxiety, depression, social awkwardness, lack of motivation, lack of energy, headaches, poor memory, foggy brain, inability to talk to women, erectile dysfunction, sexual dysfunction in general, self-loathing, etc.
Not everyone will be affected in the same way, but the above problems are very common in porn addicts.
Excessive pornography/masturbation has a huge array of negative psychological (and physiological) side effects.
This is partially because you are destroying the normal functionality of your endocrine system, which regulates your body’s hormones, which in turn regulate how your body and mind function. (Healthy body, healthy mind). More on this later.
Below are a few studies on the negative effects of porn. There are a lot more out there, but this selection should be enough to demonstrate that the negative effects mentioned above have been verified scientifically/medically.
Burned out dopamine receptors
High prolactin (kills motivation)
Hypofrontality (kills memory and associated with ADHD, bipolar, depression)
Measurable brain damage (loss of gray matter)
Stronger cravings than drug users (meth)
You can easily find more studies online.
It takes 7 days for testosterone (T) levels to recover from one fap. After 7 days, your T begins to stabilize at its “normal” level. However, if you fap regularly, your “normal” level of T may be bottomed out, but you can increase it: archive.vn/gWfFM
“Regularly” is anything more frequent than once every 1 to 2 weeks (as this means your T-levels are never fully recovering). According to most statistics, 50% of young people masturbate 1-7 times per week. The average is 3 times per week, once every two days.
There is a bad counter-argument that “fapping doesn’t lower test but abstaining from fapping does increase test.” Of course abstaining increases testosterone when everyone is running on empty 24/7. Anyone making this argument is an idiot. Fapping kills gains.
(If you are a regular masturbator, all of your other hormones will be out of whack too, due to your fucked up endocrine system. This also applies to women, I’m just using testosterone as an example).
Men today have less testosterone than men of the same age of the previous generation – porn is a large contributor to this (alongside endocrine-disrupting chemicals, such as birth control). It seems to be an approximate 20% drop per generation. It’s probably more with zoomers.
You may have heard that “regular masturbation is good because it de-stresses you!”
To be blunt, this is extremely harmful bullshit propaganda. Yes, dopamine (which is released during masturbation) can reduce stress hormones (e.g. Cortisol), however…
Excessive dopamine release causes the body to become much *more* stressed than usual. A simplified explanation is that the chemical imbalance in your body forces your you into a constant state of “fight-or-flight,” generating far more stress hormones in the process.
Is it any wonder that this harmful myth is propagated by people like Planned Parenthood? It’s also in the interest of governments and corporations’ to promote harmful myths like this. Keeping the population in a state of stress leads to more consumption, less action, more fear.
Porn destroys relationships. Porn is a contributing factor in 60% of divorce cases, half of which was due to excessive porn usage.
If you use all of your coom power on egirl foot pics, and your brain is hooked on fucked up porn, you are going to lose connection to your gf/bf. This isn’t rocket science. Don’t let dopamine-harvesting eg*rl demons drain your vital energy, save it for your bf/gf.
Your perception of male/female attractiveness is destroyed when you watch a lot of porn (or fap a lot).
You are, essentially, hacking your brain into only being attracted to the finest human specimens in existence (who are out of the league of 95% of people reading this).
Don’t masturbate for 4 weeks and watch those 7/10s become 10/10s as your perception of the opposite sex slowly returns to normal. The longer you abstain, the more you will be attracted to “normal” members of the opposite sex (i.e.: people in your own league)
That should be obvious. It’s worse than bad, its a weapon.
Isra*lis broadcast pornography on Palestinian TV in 2000s.
Did they do it to be nice to the Palestinians? Just being good neighbors, showing porn to the kids?
Of course not.
They did it because pornography is extremely damaging and addictive, and it ruins peoples’ lives.
Pornography websites are rife with human trafficking, pedophilia, rape, sex slavery, bestiality, etc. These websites are filled with abusive and inhuman videos.
With regards to P*rnhub hosting child pornography, their community manager “Katie” said that P*rnhub users shouldn’t report the videos to the police, FBI, etc., but to simply flag them with P*rnhub’s internal report system. Can’t have PedoHub getting busted for hosting CP, right?
There are masses of these stories out there.
These porn companies are EVIL.
Porn companies also intentionally promote the most fucked up and degenerate shit possible. The purpose is to subliminally hack your brain while you are in hornt mode. You take in all of the degenerate peripheries while using their websites.
Studies have proven that porn addicts constantly require more & more extreme pornography to satisfy themselves: archive.vn/BMNof
To keep users hooked, porn producers make more and more extreme content, though there is likely a malevolent ulterior motive.
There are also various reports from tr*nsg*nd*r people stating that porn addiction may have been a causal factor in them questioning their “g*nder identity.” Remember, porn is being consumed en masse by children and designed to be more and more addictive the longer it is used.
WHO IS BEHIND PORN?
The same people who are behind degenerate hook-up apps, the degenerate music industry, the degenerate film industry, and every other source of poz imaginable.
I’m gonna go with “check the CEOs ‘Early Life’ sections on Wiki” for optics purposes.
Here are the important points covered so far:
– 25% of all web searches are pornographic
– The average age people first see porn is 11 years old
– Children under the age of 10 make up 22% online porn consumption among under 18s
– If you can’t go 3 weeks without porn you are an addict
– Most people watch porn 3 times per week (every 2 days)
– It takes 7 days for your body’s hormones to normalize after one fap
– Porn addiction is likely causing your “depression and anxiety” – Porn literally gives you brain damage
– Porn is more addictive than drugs
– Porn destroys your hormonal system
– Porn destroys muscle gains in men
– Men have considerably less testosterone than last generation
– Porn INCREASES stress (not degreases) – Porn contributes to 60% of all divorces
– Porn destroys your perception of the opposite sex
– Porn is designed to make you sexually dysfunctional
– Porn companies (such as P*rnHub) enable and host: sex trafficking, bestiality, pedophilia, rape, sex slavery, etc. – Porn was used as a weapon to inflict psychological terror during war
AN ACT OF GENOCIDE
I think it should be pretty obvious by this point that pornography is evil and literally a psychological weapon. It clearly violates the UN’s genocide conventions too:
NOFAP. STOP WATCHING PORN:
Many genius men through history have advocated nofap, such as Nietzsche, who was an insanely prolific author.
Interestingly, “精” in both Chinese and Japanese means ‘spirit, energy, vigor, vital essence,’ but also to ‘semen:’ https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/精%23Japanese
Aside from the fact that you won’t be supporting PedoHub and evil pornographers and giving yourself quantifiable brain damage, here’s a selection of benefits to nofap. (From this vid)
The point of stopping watching porn isn’t just to counter the harmful physical and psychological effects, but to undo the damage that those effects have had upon your lifestyle. This could be a lack of confidence, physical activity, girlfriend, drive to create and succeed, etc.
To stop watching porn you need to quit cold turkey. That means NO stalking egirls on Instagram and Tiktok, NO hentai, NO foot pics! I know what you degenerates are up to, always RTing smut onto the TL.
You have to quit for an ABSOLUTE MINIMUM of 3 weeks. If you’re badly addicted you will need around 3 months of nofap to allow your fucked up brain and endocrine system to repair themselves. You may even need more time than that. Go for as long as possible.
Due to the high levels of dopamine released via excessive masturbation, you will have a dopamine addiction. You need to ween yourself off this by replacing the dopamine rush of cooming with something else.
Because the coom rush is big, you need lots of little things to compensate: fix your diet, start exercising every day, lift 3 times a week, do some dynamic stretches (I like Bodhidharma’s Thousand Luohan Hands), take up creative hobbies, join sport clubs, and things like that.
It’s very important to keep busy. I know that’s hard under quarantine with constant temptation and internet access, which is why I made this thread
THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP YOURSELF DURING NOFAP:
– Deleting all porn and lewds on your HD.
– Put a calendar on your wall to manually track progress (this will also get you into a goal-orientated mindset).
– Create a list of life goals to work towards.
– Create weekly list of goals to achieve.
– Install a web plugin (or something) that blocks porn websites.
– Keep up a good, consistent routine (always go to bed and wake up at the same time, eat at the same time, etc.)
– Turn off your PC / phone / etc. in the evening.
– Don’t do anything that lowers your self-control, such as drinking alcohol, SMOKING WEED (quit that shit already, doofus), taking drugs, and so on. If you do any of this, you will fail. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
You will fail at some point. Don’t be too mad at yourself if you do. The most important thing is to avoid reverting back into your old habits (whatever they were) and start going with nofap again immediately.
What to expect & when.
– Day 2-3: You are most likely to fail
– Week 1: You’ll think about porn 24/7
– Day 7: Strong urges to fap, when testosterone is peaking
– Week 2: You may suffer from insomnia and other side effects, such as irritability, mood swings, etc. You may also suffer a total loss of any sexual energies/urges at all (don’t worry if that does happen, they will return).
– After 2-3 weeks: Your hormones and mood begin to stabilize and general vitality returns.
– 1-2 months: You’ll see the most notable spike of improvement in psyche and general health.
– After month 2: You’ll barely think about porn at all (huge change from every 5 minutes in week 1).
– Month 3: Your brain finally starts to fully ‘reset’, but some people need longer.
– No, you cant just replace porn with something else (photos, anime girls, your imagination) & keep fapping. Yes, that is better than porn but you’re still programming yourself for negative sexual behaviors and your endocrine system won’t repair itself if you keep cooming.
– Yes, watching porn all the time is bad for women too. Stop it.
– “How often should I watch porn?” Never.
“How often should I masturbate?” Never, ideally, definitely never be more than once every 2-3 weeks, since your testosterone only normalizes 7 days after you coom.
– Yes, nofap will help you “get gf/bf” if you are “tfw no gf/bf,” but that shouldn’t be your sole aim. Your aim should be to improve yourself, your life, fitness, health, motivation etc. When you do that, you will improve your ability to talk to men/women and from there you will find what you’re looking for. If you are driven purely by lust for women, instead of the drive for self-overcoming, then you are still in the coomer mindset and have a higher chance of relapsing back into your old degenerate ways.
– Yes, you can still have sex with your bf or gf (SP says NO to promiscuous sex, you’re just replacing porn with th*ts), but just be aware that you will probably get strong urges to watch porn the following day. If your aim is to end porn/fapping addiction, it may be best to abstain from sex for a few weeks. I’m not saying that you should blueballs your partner though. I’m saying that you aren’t allowed to coom. They are allowed (unless they’re addicted to fapping and porn too, in which case you should help them quit).
– “Haha I’m still gonna watch porn you dumb weeb”
Okay. Enjoy your fucked up endocrine system and psychological defects and ruined relationships because you can’t stop yourself from being a cuckold creeper and watching other people have sex through your computer screen.
Reblogged this on Muunyayo.
Eric, I miss your ‘Calculus of Decay’ articles on wordpress. Perhaps you could try substack (??). Or let us know where can still find you excellent compilation of ‘Literature’.

Yes agree with this. Did a post at https://dchealthtrendsandevidence.com/index.php/2020/05/24/how-porn-is-wrecking-our-sex-lives-and-more-current-evidence/ concerning the research on this…astounding and people need to wake up to this!
Donavan, I really enjoyed your article. I’m sorry for the overwhelming negative comments that caused you to shut off your comments. I wanted to leave a comment thanking you for the article.
Keep fighting the good fight and putting information out there.

How Porn Changes The Brain: https://fightthenewdrug.org/how-porn-changes-the-brain/
Pro-porn propagandist often cite a 2nd Taylor Kohut study to support their assertion that porn use leads to greater “egalitarianism” & less sexist views. Yet, most other studies say otherwise. YBOP reveals how Taylor Kohut produced his outlier results:
Reality check on porn use and actual egalitarianism.
The summary from this 2016 meta-analysis: “Media and Sexualization: State of Empirical Research, 1995–2015.” https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00224499.2016.1142496?journalCode=hjsr20
a good article to read on the subject:
Nullsci/Francis Black (use to work alt hype and made the debunking to vaush/rose wrist’s research document)
however, recently he has been writing a thesis on pornography, and well his conclusions are a bit different.
note: he hasn’t published everything yet.
the average age of discovering porn could be 15 and studies give different results.
that “distress caused by moral issues” may cause a number of the issues with porn.
“Porn consumption was positively associated with depression, but this effect was stronger for people who were morally against porn but continued to watch porn anyways:”
that among r/NoFap and r/Pornfree users, porn is used as a way of coping, used to feel “powerful” through escapism, is seen as harming one’s masculinity since it’s not them having real sex which leads to distress.
and that new research is showing the dopamine receptor thing to be questionable (although this one seems to have a small sample size).
Since you allow criticism I’m curious what you think about this?
although this might count as a “wall of text”.
I think it’s pretty sus that someone would go to such lengths to defend something that is already sufficiently defended by our enemies and is blatantly being used as a weapon to destroy our civilization and societies. what’s next, defending teachers who tell little kids about sodomy and dildos?
Edit: Phenomenal, I just pulled that out of thin air but they’re literally defending teachers who tell little kids about sodomy and dildos :
yeah I don’t think this person can be trusted.
Where the fuck did you find this person?
Quite obvious that this person is some sort of weird pervert.
Yeah he’s taken a bit of a weird turn although i don’t think he’s gone full shitlib, he’s Francis Black someone who use to work with the “alt hype” (Ryan Faulk and Sean last) he use to mostly post and HBD type stuff and criminology (articles arguing poverty doesn’t cause crime, blacks are shot proportionally to the crimes they commit and the missing white woman syndrome is exaggerated.) but has been talking about porn a lot recently .
i always found his articles to be informative
ngl looks like a plain old libtard to me now, regardless of past works
Recap of what you did here:
1) You lied about what he was defending
2) You made statements about what you believe his political beliefs to be
3) You then claim “he can’t be trusted” and that “he’s a pervert”
You did not actually engage with any of the research or conclusions he put forth. Pathetic.
why would I engage with the “research” and “conclusions” of some weird leftist pervert?
Hey Thuletide, do you think that exercise or smoking during this 7 days period of recovery speed up the process of returning your Testosterone to baseline levels?
Also wanted to know your thoughts easypeasymethod.org and if you’ve heard about it at all,, as it’s a proven method of quitting pornography once and for all and helped me immensely.
its been a while since I read any stuff about hormones but iirc exercise gives a temporary boost to testosterone, but overall inceasing your health, muscle mass etc gives a permanent boost. so yes exercise will help. smoking iirc reduces testosterone so dont do that.
never read the easypeasymethod because it’s way too long
You know, I’m not so sure about the public consensus on anti-smoking. Why would the triple parenthesis’ be so against the idea of White people smoking if the supposed outcome is that those who did would get lung cancer? Not to mention that they themselves are chimneys. Surely if smoking caused lung cancer, they would be quick to jump on the chance and promote it to the White man as much as possible, right? There’s a rather lengthy article going over some of these findings: https://www.sott.net/article/338885-A-comprehensive-review-of-the-many-health-benefits-of-smoking-Tobacco?fbclid=IwAR2LLEtePN7Vz1-POXwe8a6dXYESNLgcg-yW59sd9WJ8kTjKal7NuA_NGhQ
Now when it comes to how you consume Nicotine, then I can understand the bias. Cigarettes aren’t a great way to consume Nicotine due to all the additives and the fact that you inhale the smoke into your lungs; whereas with cigars and pipes, the smoke doesn’t go beyond your throat.
Hope to hear back from you, and sorry for the late reply.
Will nofap help me get gf even if I am extremely socially inept?
It will help increase your confidence and stabilize your moods and stuff, making you less anxious, but you will need to do things that make you more socially capable as well. Do basic stuff like help your parents, go to social clubs with friends (like the gym, or a sports club, or hiking), or bars and stuff. Find something that you can tolerate and the more time you spend with people the more socially capable you will become.
Advocating no ejaculation is bullshit.
There is 0 evidence than abstinence from sex raises your testosterone. T levels go up only first 3 to 7 day of abstaining, then they go down. Men who do not ejaculate have on average lower T levels than those who do and this is common knowledge.
There is no such thing as semen reabsorbtion!! Abstaining from ejaculation for longer than two weeks is harmful for male reproductive health and will cause problems like congestive prostatitis. Use it or lose it.
People, be aware!!!
P.S. porn is still bad. Don’t watch.
“this is common knowledge.”
No it isn’t.
“There is no such thing as semen reabsorbtion”
Yes there is.
“Abstaining from ejaculation for longer than two weeks is harmful for male reproductive health and will cause problems like congestive prostatitis.”
Post some citations.
From what you’ve written it’s very clear that you are not an urologist, also you have no idea about testosterone metabolic curve. It’s unclear to me why you decide that you are sophisticated enough to give advice on those topics.
Whenever a question of type “Should I practice X?” is asked the correct answer is always “It depends” and ejaculation abstinence is NOT an exemption.
>No it isn’t.
Don’t pretend to be an idiot, Thuletide, because I know that you are not one. EVERYONE knows that a male who has regular sexual life will have higher male hormone level than a celibate male. Plenty of studies prove this, too. I will not link them, they are easy to find.
>Yes there is.
Right. It exists in minds of NoFap cargo cultists. And in the segments of internet which they inhabit. Dead sperm is broken down and removed from body via normal ways of waste disposal. If you believe that such waste can be reused by body then you might as well start drinking your pee. Also, if it was real, then vasectomy would be a great thing to do.
With next comment I’ll attach a list of links to studies regarding sex abstinence that I’ve collected.
Regarding health conditions that make sex abstinence a bad idea I can only tell you this much: it’s complicated. If you want to learn more you should probably contact your urologist.
