    Sign me up! I'm a girl, but the fenale thread is...lacking to say the least. I'm aiming to abstain because I have a feeling watching porn recently has had a negative effect on me and also want to focus my energies on other things, get a boyfriend etc.

    I wonder how many wet dreams this is going to result in?


    Actually- one of the rules was no ejaculation, so does a wet dream count as failure?
    It's a test of willpower, so involuntary ejaculation is OK.

    I'll quit Porn which I have been needing to do for a while, but masturbation? I don't want to explode the next time a female touches me, plus it helps prevent prostate cancer.

    Re-Start - 06/01/2013 01:31 (Is it possible to re-start?)

    I am going to say that I think I have an addiction and is the reason why I signed up to this. It has been going on now for the last couple of years at least. The first I told someone about this was when I went to a counsellor to seek help last summer and I thought I had got better, however it was temporary. This was whilst I was abroad and was due to go to another country for work, although my counsellor felt I was getting better as well and so stopped the sessions.

    My problem is that I am now using masturbation as a drug to fall asleep whenever I have difficulty. When this happens, I feel as though I have no control over myself. It is most probably in my mind though. Then I spend the rest of the day tired, depressed, sleeping during the day and not wanting to do any work and I am currently risking the final year of my degree. I really want to focus my energies towards other activities and will hopefully be able to with the support of this thread.

    My plan is to use this thread as a support network, although I know it is in the Chat forum and not Health or something similar. Any tips and suggestions welcome. Thanks.

    I can somewhat sympathise, thought not as serious. I did fap every night before I went to sleep and it seemed to help me sleep, but honestly it's worse waking up in the morning after ****ing than not... Also sometimes it ruins my exam performance depending on when I do it.

    It's hardly helping the guys, you talking about doing that. Surely with this many guys now signed up to overcoming masturbation for a year you can do the same? Us girls are lagging way behind!
    As said in previous comment theres no way I could/want to do it, and the whole point was to make it 'hard' for the guys.

    What are the rules for wet dreams? Surely I can't be blamed for dreaming about having a threesome with Rachel and Monica?


    This was posted from The Student Room's iPhone/iPad App
    Wet dreams are involuntary, so it clearly does not mean a failure. However, voluntary ejaculation is clearly a failure!

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    If you say try you've already said you may not be able to do it and are setting yourself up for a fall.

    You really are a moron, aren't you? You asked for evidence of the good effects of not masturbating and then refuse to actually recognise it because of my taste in comedy. And I'll have you know I'm predicted 5 As in my AS levels. :pierre:
    You can link to an article if you like. I'm just not going to watch a 15 minute TED talk when i've been directed there by a Miranda fan. It's just a principle. I can see how watching her is conducive to not masturbating though. And 5 As in your AS levels? Holy crap!!! lol....
