    Yes it's me.but not you. I would say anyone who watch porn and agrees to watch other women being treated like objects is the sickest person on earth.

    Unproven.

    Or does the guy who views women as objects watch porn? I mostly agree on this point

    I'm not even sure where you get this.
    It can but I don't think most guys progress to fetishes etc.

    Yeah, I could watch porn again but I'm choosing not to for now.

    Is there someone who has experienced the "woman attraction" and can proove it's not a placebo in some way?

    *Logs onto NoFap, sees this thread, sees that its 8 pages long, wonders how I managed to miss this thread, assume it must have been going on a while...

    ... sees it was only started on Tuesday.

    Sounds like a sound result. I agree that it may be a placebo effect cause 99% of this shit is mental.

    Sorry, i didn't mean to offend 21 yers old, there is a guy with the same age on the thread that is actually very smart. I was just intending to pinch that guy because he offended me several times with no reason, he vas actually banned for some days for that.
    More than the mic he was dropping childish unstable behaviour.

    not pulling this out of my ass but not fapping or having sex or rather, no orgasm actually makes the brain more "receptive" to testosterone and other androgens. in other words, the androgen receptors in our brains become more sensitive. once again, this isn't bro-science, it's a fact.

    Ok, so, after opening the thread i masturbated two days ago and today, to some pic of a dating app and to some softcore images of girls.

    At the momenti i don't feel any different, maybe i feel even better, more at ease, more relaxed. In this two days at the gym i was even better than monday and the last week.
    I have not seen any difference in how people treat me or things like that.
    The only issue is that i'm sure that my back pain will come back if i continue doing this.

    For the rest, i'm sure woman attraction is total bullcrap, is made up by people who need to sell products an promote youtube channels.
    I still think porn is bad, i didn't watch it from the last year and for now i don't want to.

    So, my final judgement on nofap is that the advantages are way overstimated, there is no such thing as woman attraction or bullcrap like that.
    Nofap is good only to help you remove hard porn addiction at first
    , but when you are over it, for what i experienced and learnt not fapping is not good and not useful at all, it will not make you better socially or with girls, if something, it makes you even worst, nervous and agitated.

    Not that i fapped to some softcore i will try to do another month in hard mode, to see if i notice any difference again, but for now nofap has totally deluded me and it's way overstimated.

    I am not going to read through all the posts in this thread, and I am sure someone has said something about Testosterone boost after each day of NoFap...capping out around 10 days...so there is a reason to not be an addict right there!

    ..and before I get the you only have two days thing or whatever...ive been in this for years. I have put in streaks, not quite like yours, but each streak is beneficial in its own way. If someone can not see a positive change in their lives after a streak of any length then they are probably not looking at things the right way...

    So the way I see it is that you are not fully understanding the advantages. What time of day did you fap? What did you miss out on while you were fapping? Could you have met a women...probably. Would you have been attracted to that women? Who knows but after a week of nofap, or not having any of your sperm wasted, then your testosterone will be doubled and you probably would have been twice as likely to be attracted to the women that you did not even give you self a chance to see, let alone meet.

    as for being more social, see the above paragraph and question reasoning again^^
    if keeping your hand off of your dick makes you worse with girls then you should let me know how? why?
    Just because you nut too quick? have you tried going for round 2? or maybe just stopping before you nut and doing stuff to her..either way as long as the women gets what she wants you should not be worried. Maybe that is it, are they not?

    Just curious, sorry if it seems harsh but you literally just said nofap does pretty much nothing when there is a lot of scientific evidence to prove the latter. Also just a lot of common sense evidence like the situation I posed in the paragraph above. I bet you have done that once or twice on a weekend night probably even..I mean haven't we all. Wonder what beautiful women we have missed out on getting the chance to talk to, share a drink or meal with, or maybe even get to start relationships sexually with?

    Not touching yourself is not a problem solver. You are not going to get physically stronger, or attract more women, or survive a shotgun blast to the head just because NoFap. I haven't relapsed since I started, I am 150+ days into this, and even when I do feel better about myself compared to when I started, it has nothing to do with NoFap.

    I still do it because it is a matter of dignity for me, to not pleasure yourself by watching women you will never see in your life. And for hardcore pornography addicts, it is about self-control and building a strong will.

    Do not expect superpowers.

    I haven't read the rest of the topic ahead, but where is the data for that affirmation?
    In other words, prove what you're saying from a reliable source.

    I don't think I've came across that argument before, and I see it repeated a few times in this topic....

    Doing this from phone is not easy, and can't understand if I did it right before.

    Back this up with proven evidence. Show where is your source for this affirmation, otherwise you won't be taken seriously.

    Its possible you never had a problem with porn to begin with once porn affects your brain and starts affecting your life thats when you need to start fighting back and getting on nofap.

    The testosterone spikes in 10-15 days, after that it gets back to normal.
    So this is another proof that there is no advantage on staying on nofap.

    Actually there is no scientific proof on nothing.
    The only scientific proof, which i agree with, are about porn being harmful.

    There is zero scientific proof about nofap making you better with woman or socially better.
