    Default Do you have approach anxiety? Try this..

    All of you should load a website called yourbrainonporn and read an article called The Great Porn Experiment (search it on Google). The science is pretty solid as far as I can tell and the testimonial evidence, although not exactly the foundation of scientific rigour, is pretty convincing.

    The basic concept is about giving up porn and how it can readjust our dopamine levels etc to put us in an ideal state for living an anxiety free life. Try it! I've experimented with no porn and it has led me to having a fair few days of complete confidence and sociability. I've now blocked pornography completely on my laptop and I'm going to try to follow the advice on this link to the word for a few weeks to test it out.

    I know Mystery already suggested giving up masturbation in order to become more productive, but I think this article really hammers home the scientific basis for his reasoning and acts as a good source of motivation.

    They continuously talk about 'addicts' but how does it affect regular users when they stop? I tried the no-fab thing I came across on that site half a year ago, but didn't make it for two weeks lol. I think I could get further if I'd try again.

    Are we talking about people who masturbate every once in a while only when we say 'regular' here? I think they use the term addicts to make it sounds more scientific if anything and that they aren't trying to call every guy who likes to take things into his own hands once in a while an addict Of course, without a doubt it's healthy to masturbate now and again to avoid health risks like cancer whatever these studies say I just think that this article was a bit strongly worded. There's another good post on a blog that I read related to this (it's more neutral) but I unfortunately can't post the link as I haven't posted enough on this forum yet.

    Out of curiosity, how did your attempts at abstinence affect your confidence and ability to pick up women? I'm interested in hearing from people who aren't trying to sell me the idea so that I can get a more objective idea of its effects (: The idea that frequent porn usage makes you numb to a lot of women in real life (day-to-day and not just sarging) and thus you don't attempt to approach them interests me a lot.

    Default Re: Do you have approach anxiety? Try this..

    It's in the link in my previous post, 2nd or 3rd page is where I posted the results. That was before I started approaching though, so I can't tell you how it affected PUA abilities.

    In the meanwhile I have gone on streaks lasting a week without even thinking about masturbating, though. Not as a challenge, but just because I didn't feel the need to. It's pretty easy when you have other things to focus on that fill your day. I just didn't even think about masturbating for days at times.
