Internet porn is evil

Posted: July 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

No, I haven’t lost my mind and become a feminist. Allow me to explain.

I think masturbating is very harmful to a PUA. Back in the old days of game, many people on the FastSeduction forum realised that there seemed to be a strong link between not masturbating and how easily they could approach women without being stopped by anxiety. This observation has since been validated by science.

This study has revealed that masturbating too much may cause increased social anxiety:

Dopamine surges during sexual arousal and drops after climax. It may be that people who masturbate so frequently that their reward circuitry is unable to return to homeostasis between orgasms often suffer from chronically low dopamine (or low response to dopamine)—making social anxiety more likely (and cravings for more orgasm unusually intense when relevant cues trigger sudden spikes of dopamine). In fact, social anxiety has been associated with low dopamine

There also seems to be some evidence that frequent masturbation to pornography, as opposed to sex with women, can cause a man’s testosterone levels to drop:

The Ask Men website published an article that advises against frequent masturbation. According to the article, men who masturbate frequently or look forward to masturbating alone on a daily basis may be less likely to engage in sexual activity with a partner. The article suggests that solo masturbation or masturbating with pornography regularly may reduce testosterone levels and reduce sexual partner-seeking behavior due to lower levels of testosterone.

Despite what some idiots have claimed, testosterone is not some evil hormone that causes global financial crisis. It’s the man hormone. It’s the stuff that put a man on the moon. It brought down the Nazis. It drives you to approach women, and act confidently. I’d wager real cash money on there being a strong link between how high a man’s testosterone level is and how alpha his behavior is. So more testosterone (within reason) will help you approach and escalate on more women. So less wanking means more approaching. I myself have noticed that I get much less approach anxiety if I haven’t masturbated earlier in the day before a sarge.

I mention internet porn in the title as it is internet porn that provides us with an endless supply of pornography for free, making it all the more tempting to choke the chicken. I also think that internet porn helps train our brain not to approach women. You see, our animal brain evolved to it’s current state well before digital images were available on the internet. So our animal brain does not fully realise that when we look at a picture of a hot naked women online, that she is not actually there with us. Our brain just sees the beauty, thinks that proximity to the beauty indicates that we might get laid, and so rewards us with positive emotions. If we’re constantly being rewarded for being sat at home looking at internet porn, this trains our brain to want to stay at home. The fact that we’re getting this reward without having to approach women, makes approach anxiety that much harder to over come. Our brains just see online porn as the path of least resistance towards fulfilling one of our two primary objectives, in this case reproduction.

Of course, somewhere along the line our animal brain seems to figure out that we aren’t actually sticking our dick in any women, and it punishes us for this with negative emotions, like the feeling of loneliness.

I mentioned in a post about my bad habits that I was cutting down on masturbation. Since writing that post I’ve managed to cut the weekly number of monkey spanking sessions in half. I think I need to be more drastic. I’ve got my 100 sets to do this month, and I’m really fucking intent on achieving this. To this end I’m not going to masturbate at all this week. Let’s see what effect this has on approaching. This will be hard work, mentally. This could be carnage.

  1. I knew it! Some of the most intense (real) sexual experiences I’ve ever had were when I’d refrained from porn, masturbation, and most importantly, ejaculation prior.

      It can make a big difference.

      The hard part comes in abstaining for the best part of a week before a sarge, which if you’re sarging every weekend means never masturbating. Sex has the same effect on the willingness to approach, and my ‘trouble’ at the moment is that I’m regularly fucking a girl.
