    Two of the biggest side-effects of PMO are (in my own personal opinon):

    -It destroys your brain, mind (both the conscious and subconscious mind) and soul. Hence, it gives you all kinds of difficulties in life, especially when it comes to focus, drive, motivation, anger-management, social skills and self-control. You literally become a slave as soon as this poison enters your body and mind.

    -It destroys your confidence, self-esteem and self-love and makes you feel absolute crap about yourself. You literally wander around like a sensitive, hyper-reactive, anxious, worried, lust-obsessed robot who can't think clearly and who feel he is stuck in life and who thinks nothing is going to change to the better.

    And these are just the two biggest side-effects. It has several side-effects detrimental to your overall health (including your physical health) which is why abstaining from PMO altogether is recommended. I know what I am talking about because I have been there myself and know what these negative impacts do to you and your quality of life.

    Some of the side effects that are related to social behaviour:

    1. Lying and guilt, for example when my mother or father asked me what I have done today, and I answer "nothing special". ALthough i have been had many hours of femdom sessions and porn edging. I am so glad i dont have to lie anymore.
    2. I had short temper and outburst, which I thought was a part of me. But now after many days away from pmo i realize my bad temper was related to being an addict in general, but also specially when my fapping sessions was threatened. For example being asked by my parents: "shall you go home already?". (to go home and fap).
    3. Creepiness. Porn-view point on women.

    The best way to experience the side-effects for yourself is to notice how different your feelings and behavior are when you don't use PMO. In my experience it has a big effect on :
    - brain fog / ability to think clearly
    - motivation for social interaction
    - motivation for daily routine activities (work, cleaning, groceries, cooking...)
    - awkwardness around others
    - general mood regulation
    - feeling present, peaceful with yourself
    Abstinence alone is fine but only offers limited benefits. It can kickstart an upward spiral of positive changes when coupled with other beneficial activities.

    Pornography viewing really does indeed have a tendency of escalating towards more extreme, weird and humiliating content the longer you have been watching it. I remember back in my PMO-days when I used to think that bukakes and gang-bangs (with multiple men) were completely normal and probably something that most women secretly fantasized about.
    Nothing could be more wrong in reality (as you know, women are more emotional beings than men in general) but my wicked and PMO-destroyed brain, mind and soul made it think it was all completely normal.

    hi im new to this community but not alien to the side effects of PMO. When you masturbate your brain releases oxytocin and other hormones responsible for your sense of well-being. You can get those chemicals by doing other things, like working out, having sex or generally doing what you enjoy. However most activities require dedication and effort, while masturbating offers instant pleasure while requiring no effort, just like drugs. When you do it regularly your brain gets used to the increased level of happiness hormones and you desire even more
    In the end you start feeling emotionless and plain dead inside. You need PMO just to not feel bad. Because you can get the reward(oxytocin) without pursuing any goal, you lack motivation
