    So in 2 days im going to be 30 days PMO free, so taking advantage of this, i will do an "experiment" where im going to PMO once per month (during 3 months) and in the last month im going to put the results here. Probably you're gonna ask to me: "Why the hell you are doing this you idiot".

    Well my brother, cousins and a lot of people i know, use porn in a moderate way, and they have a normal life and they don't have any problems like most of us do, even there is a lot of articles and studies that say that porn is healthy in moderation. Maybe that is the key to use porn?, in a moderate way?. That is what i'm going to check if it's true or not.

    In 2 days it will my first month in this experiment.

    Wish me luck... Remind my sacrifice for the science!.

    PS: im crazy lolo
    PS.2: Im sorry for my bad english hah

    Yeah? Really? Where?

    Pretty sure no one says P is good. Some people say MOing is good, but that's different.

    I would not do it! Maybe you will last some month but not any longer. Just my opinion!

    The problem with internet is that whatever you seek you will find. For example you search for "sugar is bad". You will get alot of articles that state sugar is bad displayed. If you search for "sugar is healthy" you will get alot of articles which contradicts your previous search. So whatever you type in is always true.

    Conclusion: Don't believe everything what you read! Make your own opinion.

    Fair enough you have at least some people which are doing the same!

    But still I think it will not work.

    There are sex researchers out there claiming porn can be healthy.

    The question that really needs to get sorted out: is porn like alcohol (okay in moderation for some, completely addictive for others) or like meth (destructive for all).

    I’m generally concerned that even if porn is okay in moderation, the methods for producing porn and the inherent degradation women tend to be treated with inside of mainstream porn is not healthy for the individual or society.

    My personal answer is this is not a good idea. Using the principle of Pascal’s Wager, you have little upside, and a lot of downside.

    At the end of the day though, people can post all sorts of data, but only you can choose to accept it or challenge it. Good luck.

  7. I think if that's what you want to do, then go right ahead. Just make sure that it doesn't spiral out of control, as it easily could. ;)

    I'm inclined to believe that porn is a lot like alcohol in that it can be used in moderation by some people, but others just find it to be addicting. If you use it in an irresponsible way, much like alcohol, it can cause a lot of issues. I think what needs to happen is greater awareness and education on what porn can actually do to you if you don't use it responsibly. I think it should be treated the same way alcohol should be, responsibly and with respect to its potential dangers.

    As long as you feel that you have the self-control to carry out this experiment, then I think it could be interesting to see how it actually turns out.

    I wish you the best of luck! Be careful, and stay strong! :D

    There is no moderating porn once you open the floodgates; dopamine is too powerful.

  10. That may be true for those of us that are actively addicted. But I'm willing to bet there's people out there that just don't get addicted to it, and that really can use it in moderation. I know that's hard to understand from our point of view because we've been addicted to it.

    But think about it in the sense of alcohol, some people get heavily addicted, but others don't. But to an alcoholic, it would be hard to understand how someone else could have alcohol on occasion without being addicted, it wouldn't make sense from their perspective. o_O

    With that being said, having already been addicted to porn, to try to use it in moderation might be possible, but it's definitely playing with fire. :eek:
