Hi, new here and curious to explore the NoFap culture. I have thought that porn was great in the past, teaching me all kinds of sex moves and so on, without really questioning what it was implicitly teaching me about women, what all this rough sex was really saying about the role of women in relationships. A big reason for me giving up porn, and then masturbation, was the kind of neediness it encourages. For example, I am not feeling great in this moment, so, instead of working through that feeling, meditating perhaps or going for a run, I need pornographic images of women to give me that hit, like a junky, leaving me feeling empty afterwards. Women are widely presented as sexual objects in the media, from advertisements to films, without pornography reinforcing that message. I don't think this helps create fulfilling relationships. For us to treat women as sex objects it is the same as when a gold digging woman treats a man as a 'success object', it is a hollow relationship. So, there are other health related reasons why I am NoFap, but I am also hoping to encourage in myself a healthier way to relate to women and the female form!
