I've been on nofap for about two years now and I like to think of myself as sort of a veteran. I've done a little experimenting with all three of these "modes" and I wanted to share my experiences with them.
I'm 19 years old. I've struggled with porn addiction since I was about 14. Thankfully, my family didn't have internet access until I was 16 and my father had stringent blocking services in place so it wasn't until quite recently that it got out of hand.
Comments: Men who become attracted to transgender (colloquially, shemale) porn/partners are typically heterosexual in their identification and arousal patterns--that is, typically not homosexual or even bisexual.
I was told about this community over a year ago by a friend; about all the benefits both physically and mentally but although I read a little bit on the subject I didn’t seriously commit to Nofap. Fast forward to 3 months ago
Comments: Here's another case study showing that the drug Naltrexone helps porn addicts control their porn use (as a last resort). For a thorough, and brilliant, discussion of Naltrexone and porn addiction see this earlier case study.
Comments: This paper (abstract below) contains two longitudinal studies examining the effects of Internet porn on "delay discounting." Delay discounting happens when people choose ten dollars right now rather than 20 dollars in a week. It's the inability to delay immediate gratification for a more valuable reward in the future.
I'm in Sydney Australia at the moment, sharing a flat with this 57 year old dude. He's fat, depressed, never goes out, doesn't have any friends, and the only sex he gets is with asian hookers at massage shops.
