    Hello fellas, i m a bit ashamed, i feel like a fraud. My last post was about how i am healed and stuff, but i have to confess in the past few days i watched some porn. Dont know why, really ...it was so intoxicating. I did not masturbate tho... but it got me v excited.

    So old patterns comming back dont know if it has any connection with some Ca-Mg-Zn supplement that i also started to take a few days ago.

    I remember myself that i got far and i should never fall again to that pity behavior of pmo.

    I read zink can increase sperm volume and testosterone, so maybe you had slightly stronger urges these days.
    But such a supplement may have benefits, if you feel good with it and can control urges now, then fine.

    Try some licorice root extract or tea. It reduces your libido, but you should not use too much. It can cause health problems.

    Another one is chaste tree extract. I have some that I have not tried yet. The problem with chaste tree is that it can reduce your sperm count and even shrink your testicles. I lost my nerve after I read about shrunken testicles LOL. (I guess I shouldn't care since I'm not likely to ever have children, but still...)

    But licorice root is pretty safe and mildly reduces libido.

    I think semen contains a lot of zinc, so the zinc you take is used to produce semen and makes you horny?

    Yes zinc definitely increases urges and upregulates male hormones.

    Not necessarily a bad thing but i am 100% sure it has an impact.

    My advice from personal experience is to take zinc and deal with the urges. It's cheap, easy to get and men need it for good overall sexual health, especially as they get older. Don't overdo on the dosage though.
