    Right now there are 4 options:
    1. "Without Porn"
    2. "Without Porn, Mastubation"
    3. "Without Porn, Masturbation, Orgasm"
    4. "Meeting My Goals"
    I would like to recommend adding option 5:

    "Without Porn, Masturbation, Sex"

    Because there are many people who are doing their reboot on full celibacy mode - they are staying away from porn, masturbation and sex. But we can not always avoid orgasm, even if we avoid sex.

    Sometimes we can have accidental orgasm during night - wet dream. There are also things like spontaneous orgasms. These are rare, but basically your body can decide to orgasm any moment during a day if tension has build up high. These are unwanted and unintentional orgasms.

    I for example would be "___ Days Without Porn, Masturbation, Orgasm" and then I had wet dream and I would be forced to change my counter to "___ Days Without Porn, Masturbation" because of that. Either that or reset my counter to zero, because now I had orgasm.

    You could say: "Just use Meeting My Goals custom option" but that does not work for me. Because I need my goals to be clearly defined and visual reminder, makes it more likely that I will not fail.

    Please consider, thank you.

    It would also be cool if more single tracking options would be introduced. For example an option to track only no masturbation (like we can track no porn - ""____ Days Without Porn"). Currently we can not track only masturbation ("____ Days Without Mastubation"), if we want to track it we also are forced to track porn along with it - "____ Days Without Porn, Mastubation".

    The reason for this is that for many people their no-PMO and no-MO counters do not match when it comes to day count. Also many people might be abstaining only from masturbation and not porn; different people have different goals. So it would be nice to have these options.
     
  3. "Orgasm" means sex here(wet dreams don't count), moreover NoFap is about quitting Porn Addiction contrary to what many people believe it's not primary about Masturbation("Fapping"). Everything is as it should be. If you want to quit masturbation but still watch porn then this site is not for you.

    Well, I'm sure you could find some forum on internet where in their community they like to call apples bananas, so when they say "a banana" they actually mean "an apple". But why redefine meanings of words, or create some type of double meanings? All it does is creates unnecessary confusion...

    I have no idea what "orgasm" means in somebody else's head, all I know is what it means according to English dictionary and last time I checked it's not synonym to the word "sex".
    Well, if the word "orgasm" doesn't actually mean orgasm and actually means "sex", then obviously wet dreams don't count... because wet dream is not sex, it is an orgasm (usually anyways, emission can happen without orgasm, but you know what I mean...). But for me to know this I have to be familiar with culture of this forum and I am not sure whether this is even stated anywhere on the website. And of it is it's still unnecessary confusion for new members to dig it up.
    Yes, it's primary about porn addiction. But have you ever wondered about the irony of a website literally called "NoMasturbation.com" (cos fapping is a slang term for masturbation) not being about not masturbating? Ha! But yes, I get that it's just better branding and the brand of NoFap officially advertises itself as not being anti masturbation but only against porn addiction. That's fine.

    However there is difference between NoFap as a registered brand name and nofap as a practice. The practice is what people choose to use if for. Some are practicing nofap not because they are addicted to porn but simply as a way for personal development, some for religious reasons, some people here are using it as a help to get rid of sex addiction or masturbation addiction and never had any problems with porn to begin with. So saying that nofap is only about this one thing isn't entirely correct, cos community is diverse with different beliefs and goals.
    I don't think so. Like I said different people have different goals here. While I am against porn I've seen people on this forum who are not. But they still practice nofap for their own reasons. I think that's perfectly fine, different people have different goals.
    Thank you for taking your time to reply. That's fine if you feel that way. But what bothers me personally is lack of options and unnecessary confusion. I'm generally a type of person who like to order things in such a way that they make sense. And redefining words and meanings does accomplish the opposite in my opinion.

    As a pedant, I agree with how you see things. But in practice, I think @S1M0NK is right.

    There is very little confusion about this on the site from what I have observed, and I have been here quite a while.

    IDK, it seems like the same thing although I have heard people get orgasms from watching Star Trek.
