Short version: No superpowers, some more confidence, far better sex, some more focus. Tell your SO, probably does not harm, could improve your relationship.
I would sincerely like to thank the both of you from the bottom of my heart. You have both changed my life in ways that I just cannot describe. I would probably not be alive right now if I didn't stumble upon both of your writings nearly a year ago.

I'm a 22 year old male and I started watching porn when I was about 12 or 13. When I was younger I used to watch porn and masturbate several times a day, every day.
