I'm just getting started, but what exactly should I do? I'm not considering quitting O because it would put a huge damper on the sex life I have with my gf. I've been off P for a couple weeks now, which is nothing I haven't done before. I define P pretty broadly... any sexual content that I dwell on (including social media pics, etc). But I guess I'm debating whether I should quit M for a while, too. My goal, at least right now, is just to not want porn anymore, and not think about it as much as I do. I don't want not watching porn to be a fight forever. So, should I quit M too? My reservations: I don't think my masturbation habits, in and of themselves, are unhealthy or unnatural. I think they become unhealthy and unnatural when combined with P It also essentially means that my gf is totally in control of when I have orgasms. There's nothing I'd change about our sex life, and it is extremely rare for her to turn down sex, but something about not having control over my own body bothers me I don't want to add unnecessary difficulty to something, especially when I don't see how it specifically helps me meet my goals But I'm not dead-set against it. Based on your knowledge/experience, and what my goals are, do you think quitting M would be helpful? If so, why?
