The Daily Man-Up

Porn essentially comes to replace natural, healthy sex…

In a relationship or even a one-night stand, you can expect flirting, touching, smells, pheromones, emotional connection, intimacy, penetration, and eventually, orgasm.

Masturbation skips all of these in favor of quickly triggering orgasm in a more direct way.

We’re tribal, pair-bonding creatures, and as such our brains need close contact for good mental health throughout our lives.

When we masturbate too frequently, our brains may replace these basic human needs with ever-increasing desire and more frequent orgasms, without the health-giving touch that actual intercourse provides.

This may modify the brain and its physiology, keeping us from feeling satisfied with actual healthy real-life relationships.

According to Cyberpsychology Behavior (2/9/2006),

Of all activities on the Internet, porn has the most potential to become addictive.” Here’s why: The reward circuit drives humans towards natural rewards. Naked beautiful women give us too much dopamine, which overrides our natural satiation mechanisms.

For the first time in human history, you’re able to completely binge on fake sex, and the effect on brain chemistry is like any other drug: excessive chronic consumption causes dopamine surges, which triggers the binge mechanism (delta fosB accumulates), which in turn triggers cravings for more.

It’s dangerously quick and easy to satisfy that craving again, and the cycle repeats itself.

So, instead of turning your natural sex drive into energy that fuels you in meeting and keeping women, you satiate that desire with video and move on with your day—at least until a few hours later, when the craving hits again.

You’re getting momentary gratification, and this reduces your drive (and ability) to secure a long-term, healthy solution.

And the detrimental effects of porn aren’t limited to your sex life.

You lose your confidence and drive, productivity, and adventurousness.

You can push a button and have an orgasm.

It’s free and it’s addicting. You watch some television. You do it again. Play some video games – get frustrated then do it again.

Go out and have a few beers to look forward to coming home to quick session then pass out.

It’s depressing, isn’t it?

So it’s time to step up.

Quit masturbating and take control of your life.
