@Red Eagle 1. The reason why I stayed away from NoFap.com for a time is because of religious lunatics like you who think masturbation is a practice of the devil or something. A. Where did he say something like that? B. Did you consider the possibility that maybe someone is trying harder and for longer period than you do, therefore they do know more about the topic? 2. Nobody gets hurt, one person feels pleasure and relaxed after the act. You get hurt... (energy drops, anti-social, not-concentrated, weak) 3. While I agree that overmasturbation is unhealthy I don't see the damage in doing it now and then. So how much is okay and how much is too much... 4. M won't turn you gay. Being gay is completely natural and there is nothing wrong with it. How is it supposed to turn a teen gay anyway? Well, masturbation with porn can actually turn you gay (or at least gay curious, Coolidge effect remember?) 5. And even if it was right, we should then encourage teens to masturbate, so they will turn gay so we can stop the over population problem. Overpopulation? Well, I can see that the native population in Germany is decreasing... 6. I'm really thinking of leaving the NoFap forums behind. NoFap seems to attract to many extremists in many ways. Extremists? Pretty cool that everyone with different opinion is an Extremist... You sound almost like Angela... (Daughter of Christian Priest btw) // Dude, I gave you honest answers... On the other hand, you seem like a good guy just trying to communicate your opinion in a good faith so that it will be helpful to others... Let me do the same... 7. Check for Matt Fradd or Jason Evert on Youtube. (I understand that you are not religious, but hey, I took a time to read your comment so I think it would be a good courtesy to do the same;-)) Watch one of those 1 hour videos on Porn Addiction & Recovery. (give it 10 min and watch further if you like it...) Those guys are funny and it is also very informational indeed. Maybe it will show you a different point of view on the issue. Good Luck and God Bless!
