    Am I the only one who notices that a period of abstinence from masturbation makes the face look more alert, masculine and cleaner? After binging, it seems to look drab, pathetic, weak.

    Why and how does this happen?

    It's just because you feel guilt or shame after binging which makes you look generally ill or tired.

    It's probably happiness and confidence.

    A smile is always noticed :). It emphasises your best facial features.

    A frown is droopy and ugly :(. It covers up your best facial features.

    You even notice it on the emojees.

    Totally agree. Even family members noticed that.
    I'd say Veritech's explanation is good for the differences how other people perceive you.
    More alert and especially cleaner face can also be due to hormones. Don't know if the study is true, but your testosterone levels should be higher after 1-2 weeks of no (P)MO.
     
  7. I snapped pictures of my face while going through a period of no masturbation, and also after masturbating. The skin in my face looked tighter and my face looked noticeably younger during the no masturbation period than it did after I masturbated.

    Hormones, androgens, nutrients , mental state, it's a combination of factors.

    Yes I have noticed I am maturing now that I limit my ejaculation frequency

    Best luck on your journey

    Day 14 and my face does appear slightly more youthful. I am 25, hard to tell.

    My face felt clammy and oily during Pmo, I hope this is true and my skin starts to look better down the road.

    Honestly within 7-10 days my dry skin was gone and my face felt smooth and my facial hair grew thicker I felt. Good luck. Stick with it.

    I'm a religious person, and I honestly believe that there is a light in people that you can visibly see when they are living good lives, and when you binge on something like pornography, that light is diminished, and it's noticeable in the face, especially in the eyes. My family has noticed it many times, and often ask me what is wrong the day after i relapse, even though they have no idea i'm going through this.

    I hope you are right because my skin just feels so gross during PMO, honestly I look like a bum during my addiction just tired looking and unenthusiastic all the time.

    I think it's because sex, like violence uses similar paths of conciousness. Watching hard core porn is like watching accidents on a road. It's a trauma event.

    It's the same with me and one of the reasons I came to this group-forum. I had had enough.

    Running a business from home does not help and niether does a historic predisposition to sex that has been counterproductive and negative. Now being in front of a monitor can be akin to a child being given free-reign in a sweet shop. All about opportunity and not responsibility.

    Chronic and prolonged pornography and the inevitable masturbation made me feel ill. Notwithstanding the urge to seek more explicit and extreme porn to get the same thrill.

    I felt I'll, un-human, cheap and nasty...and the effects were not just mental, the effects of debilitation and fatigue were quite real...

    Trouble is, one way sex is not rewarding in the end, it's pointless and we are here because gratification is much more than having the occasional wank now and again. It is disruptive and it's got to stop. I don't see that having the odd wank now and again is such a big deal, just like having the odd social drink, or party.

    However, I had become the sexual masturbatory equivelant of an alcoholic. and boy, did I look rough!

    I actually was think about this this morning and I think there is a difference, it may be something to do with nutrients in your seed that aren't supposed to be wasted?
