Porn Experiement

I have been curious as to whether porn was as bad as everyone says, or if it’s because of people having addictive personalities. People claim ED from getting too desensitized from watching is too much. I never watch porn so I figured I would be a great test dummy.

My EQ is down the drain anyways because I am currently cutting down to single digit body fat. I am also pumping for the majority of my routine, so the erections from porn will help out considerably.

I will be taking note of how my erections feels, how well my brain feels, how my social skills are affected, and if I can’t get hard without it. I will be taking notes down every workout. I do not have an addictive personality so I can quit cold turkey if things take a turn for the worst. I will start off by going this week. If nothing changes, I’ll go the whole month.

Not something I would play around with.

It’s all about dopamine in the brain. There are enough studies out there already.

I wouldn’t. Just have more sex instead. If you’re concerned about the EQ and what women will think, just tell them that you’re having EQ issues because of the cut. They’ll help you out.

Exactly. It sounds as if he’s thinking about images on the screen and not the actual impact of constant stimulation and orgasm.

I understand and appreciate the concern. I figured I would be the best guinea pig because it won’t affect me as harsh. If I get ED from it, I won’t get hurt too bad because I’m already cutting. I can also quit cold turkey. When I watch porn it is strictly pumping and I will not be ejaculating to it. I don’t need my brain being accustomed to cumming to images on a computer screen.

After the first day my EQ and libido seems to be way better. It’s easier for me to look at an attractive woman in person and get a hard on. Communication skills have not gotten any worse. I feel a mild headache at the very top-center of my brain sometimes if I think of porn outside of watching. Maybe imagining porn is worse?

First of all sorry about my English its far from being my native language.

Well I’m the opposite side of the equation.

I had many problems in my life and its push me into porn in very young age.

I ain’t sure if its genetic or progressive overload but my maximum times of cumming is around 25 times in 1 day. [after 2-3 times the sperm is transparent but you keep feeling the dopamine boost of Cumming] and around 10-15 times daily.

I didn’t knew it special until I told friend about it at age of 19 and he told me that normally peoples can’t do it more then 3-4 times a day.

Well the problem about me is that my social skills and fapping problems started in the same time so its hard to tell which 1 to blame. I would say both but who knows.

You’re probably right on both. But it has been cited countless times that excessive porn and fapping can contribute to social anxiety in young men especially with women. This can take years to be identified, if ever. Because it is pleasure driven, you don’t realize that it’s a problem until it has impacted some other aspect of your life. For many young people passing the day fapping to porn may not appear to be a big deal. Years later, you realize that some social skills are not fully developed and then your reflect back…and oh, “when I would have been learning how to interact with girls outside of sex, I was busy”.

Let’s put it this way. Even if it is strictly for pumping, lets assume you go to a porn site, see whats available and you chose one. FIRST RED FLAG. By choosing, you are already stimulating your brain. That dopamine is pumping. Now, would you watch exactly the same clip over and over and over? No. Perhaps you could watch it twice, 3 times, but then you know in the back of your mind that there are thousands of other videos. You will naturally next time chose a different one. That is your second red flag. You might be able to stop it there. Perfect. But that is the way it works. Average people innocently keep watching more and more, and more variety, then average sex is not enough so they move onto orgies, gang bangs, and every single sub category that exists out there. Suddenly, they find themselves having all the pleasure they need and crave just by staying watching porn and masturbating.

I believe is natural behavior. The problem is not the people, the problem is that porn is evil and is easily available for everybody. It is very hard to voluntarily stay away from it. Of course is possible. Many do it. But is hard.

That’s why I’m doing this experiment myself. All of the research done is anecdotal, not empirical. This is an anecdotal experiment, but it’s going outside of the “nofap/pornfree” echo chamber that many are afraid to step out of. I’m still talking to women at work to help myself keep track of social interactions and social anxiety.

So far I have noticed that edging makes me want to talk to women more. Edging also contributes to dopamine release the same as porn. In fact, research states it’s worse than watching porn because dopamine levels stay elevated when edging without orgasm. So far I have not noticed any negative effects but it’s far too soon to tell.

Good luck my friend. And true about edging. I have been big in edging my whole life. I agree, it makes you more prone to interact with women, I notice more focus and energy at the gym too.

This is an interesting concept. My uneducated guess is that orgasm either releases more dopamine or such a rush of it, that there’s a different effect. Edging without release keeps me horny too. I never thought of it as much more than I’ve gotten myself horny. Even if I don’t edge, but go a few days, I get the same feeling.

I think porn does desensitize men and make them less likely to get out there and get a real person. I know a guy, 38 years old, who was likely inflicted with porn early, maybe 12 or 13 years old, and he’s never even kissed a girl or went on a date because he felt like his cock was too small. So he developed serious, serious dick size anxiety when he actually had no idea if anyone real thought it was big or small. He’s an obsessive PE’er and pumper and has pumped himself to injury several times trying to grow. He can’t cum unless he’s looking at intense porn, stuff I can’t stand to look at its so intense and over the top. He absolutely cannot cut out the porn even though I encourage him to just give it a try for even just a week. This is the kind of stuff I fear effects lots of guys out there.

My situation is different but recently I’ve been wondering if porn is normalizing the way I get hard and get off. My wife is in menopause and she’s had a hard time getting treatment for vaginal issues. Last year Covid fucked up her chances to get medicine and treatment adequately but she did manage to get some and it helped a little bit. But after not having intercourse at all for about 6 months and then to suddenly do it again was a revelation and it was a LOT to deal with all of a sudden. I still feared I’d hurt her with my cock; I’m not enormous but my cock is quite large going into her quite tiny vagina. So we were unable to have real, comfy sex from about November 2019 until August 2020. We did it three times last August and then not again until this January (she had problems with medication for vaginal dryness and atrophy and it took a long long time for her to get things back in shape again). While not having sex I masturbated, a lot. I always have but masturbation was literally my only outlet to get off. She can’t suck me off like she used to due to oral cancer in the past and permanent dry mouth and a rebuilt tongue from surgery, and her libido was completely gone so she wasn’t compelled to get me off like had in years past (we’ve been together and intimate for 23 years).

My masturbation ALWAYS involved me sitting at a computer looking at porn and edging for 30-50 or so minutes and then blowing a load. I refuse to look at any stuff that involves spitting, slapping, choking, etc.. Mainly girls getting themselves off is what I love to watch. So over the last two months she’s gotten back on the saddle and wants me to get on and ride and she feels great and there’s no pain at all and lubrication is decent now. Only I can’t perform for her :( My heart races and pounds so hard when I need to get hard that I can’t at all. In fact my cock doesn’t even feel like anything in my hand or in her mouth when trying to get simulation going to achieve an erection. I wake up every morning because my morning wood is so intense and strong. I can get hard in seconds anytime of the day I want to, with no external stimuli at all. I can make myself cum 2-4 times a day, sometimes in a few minutes, sometimes I’ll play for over an hour. Physically I’m perfectly fine. Mentally I’m a fucking train wreck.

It got to the point where just thinking about trying to have sex with my wife was making me panic during the day and I obsessed over if I’d be able to get hard for her. Intimacy was stressful and honestly I didn’t even feel like getting off at all most nights. It was just all too stressful. Then I started to not be able to get hard to just make myself cum while masturbating?! And that’s when, last week, I realized I don’t need porn. I tried to masturbate and cum without porn on at home last week and I’d go from hard to soft to hard to soft while actively fucking a good Fleshlight. I thought about if I needed porn while I was doing it. This was all bad!! I need a change!

My wife is a skinny little mid-40s cutie and is hot as fuck. I pop wood just looking at her most days anytime of the day. I can caress one of her boobs and my cock swells in my pants. She’s hot enough for me and always has been. Sunday I was out of town for work and decided to cum that night. I used porn. I got hard, it felt good. I went into the bathroom to continue and it was like panic ensued and I didn’t know why: the sheer thought of cumming made me freak out and I got too excited and lost wood. I had edged for about 20 minutes prior. WTF? I went back to my bedroom and put porn on again and got hard and came in 3 minutes. The next night I didn’t watch porn at all and got a raging hard on, made myself get turned on my by own pleasure, and then erupted. The following night I was in the bathtub enjoying the warm water and a soak and didn’t even want to get hard but did and from just using a little saliva I coaxed a very pleasurable boner and made myself cum in like 1 minute and I never make myself do that!

I’ve been off porn since Monday and I can tell the difference. I did a 10 day porn break last year and it was spectacular. I find myself just looking at it like the news: what’s new out there? Any new leads? What’s the hot breaking story? Will I follow it tomorrow? I’m kind of done wanting to look at it. I love the hot women and there is stuff online now that is so sexy I don’t know of a time when there’s been such insanely hot sexy stuff online. But I want and need my wife more now than ever before. She beat cancer twice in two years and is suffering from chemotherapy-induced menopause that is affecting her very hard earlier than it should be. Over the years we used to have sex 20-25 times a month like clockwork. Just sex of all kinds all the time. We talk about sex a lot and always have and we’re trying to get through this road bump. She’s patient with me thank god! I’m losing my fear of being with her for real again. Its weird: its like when I was still ready and hard and wanting to fuck she couldn’t do it at all, while now she’s finally hot and ready for me but I’m not ready. I’ve managed to put my flaccid in her to start and then get hard while in her (which is a really neat and pleasurable feeling for both of us!!!) but I want to be hard and insert myself into her, that’s what she wants to feel too.

This has made me want to lose interest in porn. Growing up I had no erotic imagery of any kind to use and I came my teenage brains out every day and night all the time. Here’s to no porn and the healing we can all do and pleasure we can all attain by avoiding it!!!


Starting length, Spring 2003: bpel 6 3/8", bpfsl ~6 1/2", flaccid ~3-4" (never measured flaccid stretched or hanging flaccid; starting girth was probably ~5"-5 1/4")

Summer 2004: bpel 7 7/8", bpfsl 8 1/8", flaccid ~4", erect girth 5.3"

Spring 2018: bpel 7 1/4", bpfsl 7 5/8", erect girth 5 1/8"; Spring 2020: bpel 7 3/4", bpfsl 8", erect girth 5 3/8". Current - August 2021: bpel 7 3/4", bpfsl 8", erect girth 5 1/4"

I agree, edging can be good for energy levels but I wouldn’t keep looking at porn as an experiment. Whatever you do, don’t surf porn excessively and do not, I repeat do not start collecting porn. That’s where some real trouble begins.

Imagine seeing all of the things that are “top notch” things to you, and becoming desensitized. Try getting a boner to the average girl in a hookup after your brain has become unimpressed with normal looking things. The pleasure zones in the mind can become obsessed. Not a good place to be.

Honestly from the outside, it seems like you want to find out that porn is not bad for you and that you can “handle it” better than others. That sounds like the potential for an addiction while thinking you’re in control and not addicted.

Im not trying to point the finger at all bro, that’s just what it sounds like to me. I’ve been there.

Just because you haven’t had addictive trouble with drugs or alcohol or whatever doesn’t mean a porn addiction and the issues that accompany it can’t creep up and grab ahold of you. I’d be careful assuming that your exempt if I were you.

I have a bad addictive personality and quite often found myself thinking those sorts of thoughts while battling various addictions. Growing up and letting go of toxic things has been very hard for me. It can take some serious dedication and mental fortitude to beat addictions. It can make you feel like a weak ass turd. Not good for self esteem for sure.

Whatever you choose to do, be careful and quit while you can if you notice any issues. There’s already plenty of data out there from legit studies and the only one who’s at risk of damage is you in this case.

You could always watch your brain on porn videos on YouTube to get an idea rather than experimenting on your self but it sounds like you just want to look at some porn, which is obviously fine if you want to have a look but just know you may be playing with fire

To put it into perspective let me say I don’t want to experiment with heroin to prove its not as dangerous as people make it out to be
