    Very interesting post.

    I've never been "addicted" to porn, and I feel like it is a good stress release (if not abused!). I think wacking off too much will desensitive you and make you unable to perform with a "normal" girl, if you will. However, if you're not getting laid, I think the occasional jerk is good as a stress reliever. I actively think about this if I'm ever super horny, and won't wack off 2-3 days before a Friday night when I need to be oozing libido. haha.

    I think a lot of guys can relate and this topic should be talked about freely amongst men.

    apparently, the period where your dick goes limp and you lose all your libido when quitting porn is called a flatline period. I wonder what percentage of finasteride users who experienced side effects are actually people who lost their libido due to porn but didnt realize it until they started taking finasteride

    its more frustrating that ive tried this before to abstain and i failed so this is the longest ive ever gone so far. but i
    because its been hit and miss with my erections i need to cure myself to find out if fin is having an effect with my libido and theres no telling how long it takes to become "sensitised" to sex again. your right this issue needs to be talked about more, maybe effects of propecia are mind induced or im in denial to blame pornography and serial mastubation. i shouldnt be on this on my laptop knowing all i have to do is type in a site and im off the wagon again!!

    well said ppx. some guys mighnt have high libido and then take fin and put it down to that but i dont want to generalise, there are some who have suffered when before it was fine.

    WHOA.. i find this intriguing and must ask more, since you've apparently done research. Does the "flatline" period end?

    Yeah, I've decided I'm quitting porn. I'm starting fin as soon as my package arrives and I want to be sure that I don't mistake one cause for another. I have already had problems getting hard with my ex in the past. Even though she was a 7.5, she didn't really compare to the girls in porn. I think a lot of men these days are having this problem.

    yes but its different for everyone, usually lasts from 2-8 weeks I guess.

    the flatline period is basically your dick going cold turkey. as in when your 4 weeks straight without watching or masturbation of any kind, its like a reboot for you brain to re-sensitize you. i was worried reading it but it said that this is normal, im currently 18 days into it now and to be honest my libido is kicking in hard, but maybe if i last the 4-5 weeks it will go down altogether before it "reboots" again. im going to give it 7/8 weeks max, i hope to see different results then.

    i must state though that this " therapy" includes a void on anything sex related, no touching,masturbating(obviously), no porn at any level, and no fantasizing if you can.

    I remember there was a True Life on MTV about a guy addicted to porn. I was probably 16 or 17, and it literally scared me into limiting my porn use.

    Power to you guys. I hope you reward yourself by picking up a dime piece on campus or at the bars when you're back to full charge!
