    Hi.
    First of all I'm so glad I've found this website. It is an inspiration and great to see so many people who want to turn away from the unrealistic trash on the internet.
    Anyway, do you think that most men have a pmo problem? Not just those of us here but all those who have not joined this site???

    I've got some friends in real life who don't- I mean we talk about everything, and they really don't. But they are the exception to an epidemic I firmly believe. They tend to be guys that appear to be the most virile and strong- but this makes sense in that they don't pour out all their testosterone.

    Interesting question. I suspect the number is much higher than we think. Expecting much more coverage and discussion on this issue in the future!

    I know from talking with guys I know, it seems most struggle with it. Or they are fine with their lifestyle but still PMO

    Interesting question...I find myself wondering every time I am in a gathering of men...which is every day... who is hiding what, who is hurting, who is struggling with this... Surely I'm not the only one in the room. But at the same time...they are ALL VERY RESPECTABLE men. And I think...certainly NONE OF THEM can be struggling like me. But...I also am VERY RESPECTABLE too...so the other guys may be looking at me thinking...no...surely not him.... I wonder what we respectable men are hiding and struggling with.

    Some do abstain, but I do believe a majority of men have a problem with it. To be honest, it's more of a confidence and a laziness problem, which fapping only contributes to.

    To a large extent Jim, respectability is a perception on the part of others. It is generally related to how we come across to others, rather than a reflection of what we do 'behind closed doors'.

    I think just about every human male will experiment with masturbation (usually during puberty). Not all will do so regularly and even less will become addicted to it.

    In this day and age, anyone that is addicted to masturbation is almost certainly going to be addicted to pornography. These days, I believe they are two sides of the same coin.

    I agree with IGY. Basically half of the people I consider my best friends definitely suffer from an addiction to masturbation like myself. Whether it is severe or not, I do not know. But it's definitely a common theme in our society and I suspect it won't stagnate until the right information is out there for the public to see.

    Regarding these friends in real life with whom you talk about "everything", Earnest Lee. Have you told them that you are addicted to masturbation and pornography? If not, you are being deceitful, hiding your true self from them. So, how do you know that they are being truthful with you?

    I think most guys have struggled with it or done it in the past. I don't think all guys get addicted to the degree we have though. I think a lot of men do it when they are single but then once they get a partner they are able to stop relatively easily. And there are a lot of men out there doing it, addicted, who don't even see it as a problem.

    His is what I believe. A huge amount of men are probably blind to the problem.

    Most men dont really care about NoFap...Its only a small percentage of 1% that do and are willing to do something about it....Couple that with third wave feminism and the atrocious American dating scene, men will resort to porn and fap....

    A masterbation problem is sort of like alcoholism. Either you can drink moderately or you shouldn't ever drink.

    You would probably be surprised at who is struggling.I would say most men are. This is a very powerful addiction that doesn't pick and choose prisoners!

    I have no idea if most guys do.

    All guys here do. And there are many more who also do but are not on here. I choose to focus on myself and getting better in this way. I don't really worry about other guys anymore.

    It's interesting to think about but I don't worry about competition from other guys anymore now that I've made huge gains from nofap. I don't see myself as a lowly worthless human being nearly as much as I used to.

    I wish I would have known years ago. Ignorance is not bliss.
