I Think The Day Counter Options Aren't So Correct

Do you agree with my idea/purposal for the Day Counter options?

  1. Yes, definitely it's a good idea, awesome!

  2. No, I think it will make things worse. Bad idea.

    NoFap's websites provides three options for users to set their day counter, which are
    1. porn only,
    2. porn & masturbation only and
    3. porn & masturbation & orgasm.

    I don't think these three options aren't quite appropriate. It think it should be vice versa instead, because if we set it to abstain from porn only, it means we are allowed to masturbate and orgasm without porn, and if we set it to abstain from porn & masturbation only, it means we are allowed to orgasm (ejaculate) which doesn't sound quite right.

    Shouldn't it be like this instead?:
    1. orgasm only
    2. masturbation and orgasm only @ masturbation only (as abstain from masturbation = confirmed no orgasm
    3. porn, masturbation and orgasm (those who 100% want to fully quit this thing will set them to abstain from porn too)

    This way, people can set goals to they can masturbate without ejaculating (orgasm), without having to reset their counter, especially those who are new/just starting to do NoFap and still bad in controlling their urges, as well as those trying to train themselves. I think this is one of the best benefits if the day counter is as like what I have purposed. Then, after they are good in avoiding orgasm/ejaculation, they can set their goals to abstain from both the act of masturbating and orgasm.

    Let me know what do you think about this idea and correct me if I am wrong. You can explain to me how and why are the current options available for day counter correct/appropriate if I'm wrong. I'm new here as I joined a few weeks ago. If what I'm saying about this website is true, looks like no one realized about this problem in this NoFap platform.

    Did anyone of you face this problem or realize about this before?

    So essentially we'd be advocating edging, which we very much do not: https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/what-if-i-use-porn-without-orgasm

    You can do what you want but it's very much not what we encourage. Also, the day counter is just a way of showing a number. I'm pretty sure that one of the options is "Meeting My Goals" (IDK, I've never used it but I'm sure that I've seen members with that in their day counter) and even though the Day Counter says a particular goal, it doesn't mean that you can't have a different goal yourself.

    No, they seem right to me. The one I'm on, no porn and no masturbation, means that I can still have an orgasm as part of sex with my wife. That seems right. In fact there are four options, there is a check-box underneath the slider titled "custom goals".

  5. What you describe is known as 'edging'. I think this may explain why NoFap uses this method on the counter.


    However, you could always use the "Using Own Goals" option.

    My Day counter seems to not be working it showing the wrong days said 109 thought it said that 2 days ago.

    I am using the counter myself for accountability, not sure whether its a good idea or not.
    I am sure allot of research went into the pros and cons.
  8. I read it as Porn and Masturbation only to mean that I can have sex with my wife.
    Porn, Masturbation and Orgasm would be hard mode.

    I kind of like it the way it is, that being no-porn-oriented for the goals. I think that porn addiction is what this board is all about. I'm pretty sure that masturbating without porn and masturbating without orgasm are rare, although I do see it in posts from time to time. I therefore voted for leaving things as they are.

    The moderation team does not allow for crossposting threads, in order to keep the forums orderly. We will remove duplicate threads and request that you do not create duplicate threads in the future.

    I understand your perspective on the Day Counter options, but the options that are given now would fit with the goals of the majority of Fapstronauts. If you wish to have other goals, you can use the "Custom Goals" option to exactly define your reboot parameters.
