    I personally think it would be better if I give up both as a whole. From experience, 'pornless masturbation' only triggered that temptation to watch porn in the following session, which may be explained from the slight rise in dopamine levels with each session.
    Are you saying you chain-masturbate? If that is the case then, consistent with what I've already said, fapstinence may be a good idea, though I think professional help is likely to be more effective.

    I haven't. I think the idea is as ridiculous as healthy drinkers attending Alcoholics' Anonymous.

    :curious:

    The idea isn't ridiculous if you want more confidence in pulling girls, it also shows a massive willpower.

    Trust me it takes a lot of effort to abstain :rolleyes:

    There's no credible evidence that it enhances your confidence.

    I'm sure it does take willpower, but then this isn't a good reason to do it unless you have something to prove to yourself or others.

    No... how would I be able to chain-masturbate when I experience deep remorse following each session? Regardless, I'd never seek professional help on this topic anyway, when fapstinence may as well just solve all my problems.

    Alright, I know you're not a science guy so I'll try explain in layman terms. You don't need credible evidence that it enhances confidence, the science behind this fact is actually quite simple.

    As you know a mans body is full of the hormone testosterone which is responsible for loads of things including sex drive and libido and muscle growth etc. anyway if you abstain from masturbating for at least 6 days your hormone level spikes increasing sex drive and libido.

    Now imagine a young male craving for sex with high levels of testosterone pumping in his body at a club, and a guy whos just jacked off 5 hours before going to the club. Who do you think is more likely to approach the girl?

    Now I'm saying that one person will be more confident than the other guy but abstaining definitely will increase your desire to talk to woman and to try and bed them :yep:

    Have you gone for a week without masturbation from a lifestyle of masturbating every other day? The extra horniness makes me soooo much more confident around women. Although confidence maybe the incorrect word.

    If you don't have the willpower to masturbate without porn how are you going to muster the willpower to go without both?

    The fact that I am not studying a science subject at university is not reason to believe I do not have a strong understanding. If you are a 'science man' yourself I would have thought you'd appreciate the important of empirical evidence before jumping to such conclusions.

    I understand the argument. I do not accept that it is credible when it does not have any evidence to support itself. Increased levels of testosterone =/= increased confidence, and even if it did, it would be incredibly pathetic to have to feel you needed to go to such lengths to be summon the courage to talk to a member of the opposite sex.

    I can masturbate without porn with ease but it's just not as pleasuring and so I don't see the point. I believe going without one is the same as going without both.
