Age 25 - I finally lost my virginity.

I'll share what I find necessary. I target this message to other virgins, but everyone else may benefit from the read.

'I'm 31 and a virgin because I'm addicted to porn' (BBC)

Jim is 31 and a recovering porn "addict" who says porn has stopped him functioning "normally".

He's been telling Newsbeat about the devastating effect it's had on him after he began searching for more explicit material online. "The internet gives you this private space that nobody knows about," he says. "You can try things with a complete absence of consequence."

For many porn is part of a happy sex life but for those like Jim (not his real name) it can become an obsession that ruins relationships, friendships and jobs.

Age 25 - Porn-induced ED pretty much cured. I stopped watching porn 1.5 years ago.

Here is the short version of my story: 25 years old. 5 years into porn with bad habits such as fapping inside my pants without erection. PIED and PE. Not weird tastes. I stopped watching porn 1.5 years ago. I made my 90 days of nofap and then masturbating on and off without fantasizing.

Age 29 - I now handle life with strength and charisma

I realize as I look back at this 2 year journey how important it was to see other reports and know it can get better.... I'm 29, single and fighting for a career... And it is all happening, one step at a time.

Age 33 - PIED cured after 15 years! Bizarre fetishes gone. Wonderful sex.

I'm 33 years old with severe pied and I began the NoFap journey over 2 years ago, and I completed 90 days today, and i want to share my ideas about this wonderful experience

  • This is a very strong addiction, but once you get it around 2 months you're not addicted anymore, You relapse because you're just bored.

Age 30 - REAL life and REAL sex and REAL intimacy is a million times better

I can't believe I've gone almost a year without fapping. I'll be honest. I had a few peaks at porn and was close to relapsing but I just stopped myself and said "NO DO NOT DO IT!" and I turned it off and walked away from my computer.

Holy shit guys....I actually love myself!

I'm at 160+ days right now, and I'm starting to actually love myself. Not the "I love myself if I do this". This love is "I love myself regardless of who I am or who am I becoming". During the years of masturbating and watching porn, I hated myself and I wanted to kill myself, but now there's hope for me and a better future of myself.

Age 27 - Slow progress with a porn-hooked boyfriend

I have been with my boyfriend for 14 months and I love him deeply. However we have always had issues in the bedroom. It is rare that he can maintain a full erection for the duration of our sessions. Often he will stop, re-arouse himself and then carry on to climax.

Age 21 - YOU are the cure for your life

After 4 years of trying to beat this addiction I am proud to say that I finally made it to 90 days [hardmode]. I have been trying and trying for 4 years (since the 12th grade) and nothing has worked!

Age 30 - Extreme porn addict. Now, no more urges

I'm a 30 year old guy and I'd consider myself an extreme PMO addict. As soon as the alarm went off, I couldn't get out of my bed without watching a bit of porn or GIFs on my mobile and I jerked-off at least twice a day.

Easy access to online porn is 'damaging' men's health, says NHS therapist (BBC)

[Also watch related video]

A top psychosexual therapist is warning about a surge in the number of young men suffering sexual health problems because of online pornography.

Angela Gregory says more and more men in their late teens and early 20s are suffering from erectile dysfunction. She puts the blame on people becoming addicted to watching online porn. There are no official figures but she says a lot of the time it is via smartphones and laptops.

"What I've seen over the last 16 years, particularly the last five years, is an increase in the amount of younger men being referred," she said. "Our experience is that historically men that were referred to our clinic with problems with erectile dysfunction were older men whose issues were related to diabetes, MS, cardio vascular disease. These younger men do not have organic disease, they've already been tested by their GP and everything is fine.

"So one of the first assessment questions I'd always ask now is about pornography and masturbatory habit because that can be the cause of their issues about maintaining an erection with a partner."

Age 25 - No way on earth I'd ever wanna go back to that shit hole again

There are countless benefits I've experienced over the last 70 days. Here are some of the most important ones :

  • - Confidence is skyrocketing
  • - More mental clarity, no more brain fog.
  • - Mind is much much more calm
  • - Feel extremely good about myself.

My social anxiety is completely gone - Thank fuck I found NoFap

I'm not counting the days anymore because this is something I've decided I'm doing for the rest of my life. Anyways, my social anxiety is completely gone. I used to be that guy who was quiet as fuck all the time, never smiled, was boring as hell and always always always worried about my looks and what people thought of me.

Age 19 - I don't have that 'must not fap' mentality anymore and it feels great

I am finally free from porn, masturbation, and NOFAP and this may be my last post. I've been on nofap since early 17, and I am now 19, and I think you know when you are done relapsing when you forget about doing it and not doing it.
