I wanted to make a thread where you could post philsophical or moral reasons to quit fapping, because in some situations that were the only reasons that could hold me back. I was raised liberal and atheist, I was never restricted in my sexuality (first contact with porn at the age of 10, first masturbation to orgasm at the age of 16, which may be a bit late). But I still have this strong feeling about PMO being a wrong thing, which, to me, says that the refusal of PMO is as much a natural drive for some of us as the thing itself. So, before finding this forum I found many answers like: Its a natural thing, everyone does it, you have to get rid of your bad feelings about it. But that argument "everyone does it" (90 percent or so) had a reversed effect on me: I was disgusted by this image. Imagine all the people fapping today. Politicians, professors, judges, policemen, actors, brothers, fathers... all the respectable persons in the world. And the moral now is: if youre digusted by the imagination of them fapping, make a start and quit yourself. You could say: I harm noone by fapping, but as shown, thats not true. All these people harm me, because they disgust me. And surely not only me. And if I fap, Im part of the problem. The only way to tackle the problem are individual decisions. Everytime you want to fap, ask yourself: Is that, what I want for me right now something I want for everybody, even my greatest idols? If no, you have the choice: Either be a morally consequent person, or not. So, this was my first thought. If someone is interested, others will follow. Now Im interested in your thoughts. Post them.
