    I've decided to keep my iPhone downstairs and ban it from the bedroom. I was watching some good NoFap videos on YouTube then some "Go Ahead, Fap Away" videos came up in the search, next thing I'm watching a bikini modelling photoshoot and my streak is over in a few seconds!!!!

    Technically not porn, but I've simply replaced porn with kinki videos on YouTube with girls making out, swim models and bouncing boobies!

    Is this what everyone is referring to as Edging? I have filters which block the porn but I get just as aroused from watching the stuff on YouTube which I have now way of blocking.

    PMO counter reset and iPhone banned!

    Hi Climb,

    I personally refer to edging as the act of masturbating until you nearly reach orgasm but then don't finish it. What you did in my opinion is simple substitution - of course you have to decide, what passes and what doesn't since it's your challenge. Of course Bikini-Models can turn one on, but also can a hot woman in a nice dress which cannot be blocked by filters.

    The only way you can outsmart yourself is by being harsh and using the media only where you feel observed. therefore the chance of you abstaining from it may increase. Eventually you however will have to find your solution. I have the exact same problem with my phone - and you are right there are no real blockers out there/ except some Parental control apps that ban youtube, facebook etc on your phone. These might be a solution for you. For me they are not because I dont like my search history and private data shared on a cloud based system.

    The best thing is to fight yourself in the proces. At the instant you feel sucked in these nice vids break your concentration with something and then leave the room, do some quick push ups to refocus and/or drink something. This can help as first aid.

    keep it up. Everybody fails but gets better by time.

    Sir Vincent said it right, recover and learn from this. Also try and not look up anything pertaining to females. One wrong click or press BOOM relapse Females man Females.

    In the early stage of my reboot I tried to make sure I always had a huge book on the go or really interesting things to do and never accessed the internet unless I had a good legitimate reason. So no random browsing, no time off just freewheeling. Instead keeping busy, focused and doing things I like and enjoy. Then the craving gets crowding out by better stuff I prefer to do anyway. Hope that helps.
