I want to talk about the chaser effect, and I think it's relevant as some people want to have sex during the reboot and they might fall into its trap. According to the definition of this website "Chaser Effect is The super-charged desire to fap that sometimes hits 1-3 days after sexual acts. Especially powerful early on in a reboot". I wondered why this happens and here are my thoughts. When having sex, the male, you, needs to be horny to have an erection so that he can enjoy sex. The problem arises that once a couple finishes having sex, the arousal state in the male still persists, sometimes hours or even days after the sex. This is can happen sometimes, and is quite normal. The problem is that this state of sexual arousal causes brain fog, and the capacity to be rational decreases. Rationalizations and excuses happen in this state that lead to relapse. You must remember that more aroused you are the less the rational mind works. Rationalization works in this state because the rational mind doesn't see the flaws in the excuses that you are making. In a normal state of mind you would see that the rationalizations are flawed from a rational point of view, but in the aroused state you fail to notice how wrong they are. After the chance of sex is gone, the brain will start to look for other ways to O, and the only way to do it is MO or PMO. This must be my poorest post ever. So to sum up, arousal state persists long after the sexual encounter, and the male will try to find other ways to O, leading to MO or PMO. I had also witnessed the full power of the chaser effect. I had sex with my girlfriend and after 15 minutes, while she was sleeping, I was in the bathroom PMOing. I am not proud of that moment, but I learned my lesson of why that happened. In the future, just being aware of what might happen was enough to prevent it from happening again. The key is awareness. There is no need to do anything to protect ourselves from it, except getting educated, aka reading this post and understanding it. This should be enough. The thing is that after sex we let our guards down, and when we do that we get knocked out.
