Are You Up For The 7 Day Porn Diet Challenge?

Is porn bad for you?  Of course it is.  Is porn good you? You bet.

Huh, what gives man?

How can something be good and bad at the same time? I hear you ask.

I’ll get to that in a moment, but first let’s have a look at the mechanics of the 7 day porn diet.

I got the idea from reading Mark Manson’s book, Models; Attract Women Through Honesty.

Some argue watching too much porn weakens one’s sexual prowess. When sexy time comes around you’re either:

(a) unable to get or sustain an erection because you have desensitized your old fella from jerking off too much;

(b) experience delayed ejaculation;

(c)  become overly sensitive and cum too soon.

The lads over at high existence go deeper suggesting the negative impacts of jerking off over porn makes us desire ‘real’ women less, experience irrational anxieties when we think about sex and (gulp) find porn more interesting than having sex with another human being.

Confession: I masturbate over porn at least once a week, occasionally more, and have never found it more interesting than having sex with a woman, or desired ‘real’ women less, or had irrational anxieties thinking about sex.

If anything, it has increased my arousal with a woman more than not and I have learned many tricks of the trade from watching porn.

That said I have had trouble getting it up in the past – the question remains, though, was that because of porn or because the woman I was fucking at the time a complete and utter sociopath?

So how is porn good and bad for you at the same time?

Well, first of all, let’s look at masturbation.  Having a ‘toss’ is natural and normal -don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

According to the journal, Better Health masturbation:

  • is a safer form of sex that carries no risk of sexually transmissible infection or unplanned pregnancy
  • helps us better communicate our wants and needs to our partner
  • releases sexual tension
  • is a mode of sexual therapy or treatment for sexual dysfunction.

 

Therefore, one could safely deduce that masturbating over porn is a positive, pleasant, normal experience with many benefits.

The problem hardens (pun intended) when we become addicted.  What constitutes porn addiction is anyone’s guess but the general consensus is when it consumes your life. Here’s three examples:

  • you prefer masturbating over porn than being intimate with a real person;
  • you are managing anxiety or stress rather than dealing with it;
  • you masturbate at work, in public, or other ‘inappropriate’ places often

Anyhow, I’m neither a psychologist nor sexual therapist, I am just expressing my view-point on the topic of whether porn, or more specifically masturbating over porn, is good or bad for you.

As stated, I think it is both.

If you feel you have a porn addiction it is advisable you consult your physician.

So back to the 7 day porn diet and why I’m doing it.

I don’t have a porn addiction, however, as I’m currently in between sexual partners, I am finding myself obliterating my willy over porn more than normal.

Mark Manson says when you hit this point masturbating once in a 7 day period is the cure.

And when you do masturbate, he says, you must do so on a particular day over a ‘real’ woman and not porn.

As I consider myself the ‘curious scientist’ I’m up for the experiment.

I have chosen Wednesday because it is my deload day…literally!

I have never had a problem with getting and sustaining an erection, however, my sexual partners have told me I cum too soon.

Let’s see if the porn diet helps.

If nothing else it’s another way of investing in myself through testing my will power and mental toughness, and therefore, being my best version.
