The Daily Man-Up

Masturbation and porn does more harm than good.

What’s worse is that women sense it, too—overall, you’re less attracted to them because you’ve been satisfied without them, and in turn they’re less attracted to you which ultimately leads to a spiral of more masturbation and porn and more social anxiety since  you have less drive to pursue women in the real world.

Do I have your attention? It’s really important you are reading this because the above stated: the more you masturbate to porn the less likely you are to get laid.

In Phillip Zimbardo’s TED talk, “The Demise of Guys?”, Zimbardo asserts that the average boy watches 50 porn clips a week. For every movie made in Hollywood, there are 11,000 porn movies. Brains are being rewired to expect constant novelty and constant arousal, which is out of sync with the reality of real women and real relationships. In fact, the demand that men have for new porn stars cannot keep up with the supply. This trend will only continue as long as men consume more and more pornography.

This causes everyday pleasures to be less exciting than porn activity. This is same for other addicts, but it’s true for porn addicts as well. Few things can cause the kind of dopamine spike that an orgasm can, and healthy activities are steadily phased out. This causes a dullness in the life of man. There is no gusto. No drive to succeed in business, relationships and life. Men won’t be pursuing women in real life. They will go to work, joke around with guys, come home, eat, get online, jerk off to porn, and repeat.

In Psychology Today, Marnia Robinson stated that when people “abstain from porn and cut way back on masturbation, their desire to connect with others surges. So does their confidence, their ability to look others in the eye, their sense of humor, their perception of their ‘manliness,’ their concentration, charisma, their optimism, their judgment, their attractiveness to potential mates, and so forth.

Even those formerly suffering from social anxiety are more often than not emboldened to explore new avenues for social contact: smiling and joking with work colleagues, online dating, meditation groups, nightspots, and so forth. In some cases it takes months, but often the shift is so rapid that it catches them by surprise.”
