The truth is porn is great. So the problem is well ... it's great.

    I wanted to share some wisdom from a called Jordan Peterson's Drinking song. And by looking at addiction through this lenses I helped me quite a bit.

    So here is a truth. Porn is powerful, effective, fun and free. That is why its so common, thats why there are so many websites with it. That is why we need an entire website dedicated to dealing with it.

    Its powerful because it convenient exactly when you are weak. It is effective because it fools the brain when you are at a point where you want ur brain to be fooled especially when reality isnt going well.

    So if you want to quit porn u need something better than that. And porn is pretty good so thats hard. Like if you asked someone who watches porn why they watch porn ... its like that is a stupid question ... Why do people drink after work? Why do people buy junk food?

    So that is the wrong question. The right question is how come we dont eat junk food , drink and watch porn all the time?

    And its because there are more meaningful worthwhile things that need to be done. Things that impact the world or the very least improve our lives.

    So lets go back to it. Is porn great? Well its great in that moment but u do stupid and fiendish things.

    You look at fetishes that make u feel ashamed.
    You fap yourself stupid and raw.
    You waste your time.
    You end up hording porn and saving links.
    You lose energy
    You lose motivation
    You lose charisma/manliness/confidence.
    You feel weak (minded and physically)
    You miss out on opporunities
    You scare away potential mates
    You have to lie about it.

    And many more consequences. So no doubt its fun in that moment but it leaves u picking up the pieces. And so its not free at all is it? And its not that great. I mean its still pretty great but you are greater and u can have better by sacrificing that.
    The idea isnt to be afraid of naked women or men. Its to be brave to face everything else in ur life so u dont have to go in ur room, turn off the light and fap.


    Face what u have to in life to make u strong. Face the women in ur life. They might reject u or they might not. But u will get strong and more attractive and find someone.

    Better isnt just being straight and using all ur will power not to peek. You need an adventure. You need something in your life worth sacrificing that vice for.

    So porn is great but the problem is ... there are CONSEQUENCES.

  2. This is a good point, but the consequences and the meaning behind pornography are what make it so bad. As human beings, we try to justify it as "oh this is just one time then I'll stop forever", but the industry makes it look attractive when it's really just a big misconception. We are naturally designed to love. And by love, I mean find that special someone who you bond so well with that you couldn't live without. But pornography destroys this love. It may seem like fun and games, but when you are looking upon another person with the intention of self pleasure, that is not love. It is lust.

    Furthermore, I watched an interesting video the other day that talked about the truth of the pornography industry and it said something along the lines of "you don't know how many people are being forced into pornography. Most people you see in those videos are being forced to do it (whether it be for money or not). That is called rape." He continues by saying the reason he stopped watching is "You could literally be watching someone get raped and get excited about it."

    That hit me. As soon as that was said, my heart sunk. Pornography is not great by any means. It may seem attractive in the moment, but the motive behind it is an enemy to true love and can ruin people's lives.

    Porn is fun like a clown who makes you laugh so hard it literally hurts and then, whilst you're not looking, slips roofies in your drink and proceeds to rape you in your sleep. And even though we wake up with a sore backside we still keep going back because goddamnit the clown is so damn funny.

    I would like to add that, just because something feels great, doesn't mean it is great.

  5. You have come to the right conclusion. It is not free and it has negative consequences. It ruins your capability to enjoy natural sex which is much better. You mentioned that you need something worth sacrificing that vice for. I sacrificed it for a more fulfilling relationship with God. Not sure where you are on your spiritual journey? But if your interested in this relationship message me.

    Its like those guys on the forum who quit porn only to get addicted to prostitutes. Fun until u realize she left u an std and took extra money out ur wallet xD.


    Thats a good sacrifice.

    its great like getting super drunk all the time and destroying ur liver is great. Great like crack cocaine. Great riding a rollercoaster after eating too much and then puking ur guts out lol.
