I masturbated without using porn? any thoughts?
« on: April 28, 2014, 02:51:21 PM »
I started about last Monday, made it until Sunday before i decided to masturbate. During my short reboot, if you can call it that, i got maybe 2 morning woods within the first couple of days after that. Aside from that my stomach generally hurt and i thought it was because my body was producing sperm? Im not sure, but regardless of that i started thinking about a girl ive been talking to and im sure you can piece it together. I didn't get hard from thinking about it alone i had to use my hand until i was erect. Sorry for all the details but im just trying to be clear, would this be considered an inhibitor to my reboot? I've been alot wittier and more concerned about actual connection rather than sex, but after masturbating I felt relaxed but significantly more lazy, so my guess is my body was looking for the dopamine shot rather than those thoughts triggering my actual libido? Im not sure so if anyone can give insight its much appreciated. :-\

When you said "I didn't get hard from thinking about it alone..." What is "it?"

If you were thinking about sex - as in a porn fantasy - then that's bad. Masturbation is discouraged by some and there's some information out there to suggest that any orgasm is to be avoided for some time, but masturbating/edging to porn or porn fantasy is exactly what you're trying to stop. 

But I wouldn't worry too much about not making any mistakes along the way. There's no such thing as the perfect reboot. As long as it didn't lead to a porn relapse, I'd say take it and move on. I wouldn't be trying it regularly, but once isn't gonna be a killer.

I was thinking about having sex with the girl im talking to, or fantasizing i guess. I was imagining just missionary sex with her and her on top. i had to physically stimulate myself because just thinking about it wasnt getting me erect. Thats why i was concerned though because i was thinking more about orgasm than watching porn for an orgasm. It didnt lead to porn use so i kindve justified it in my head. Ive grown less interested in the porn and it continues getting stronger. I just wasnt sure if fantasizing about girls i know in real life( as creepy as it may sound..) was equivalent to porn fantasy. I will continue to hold my ground and try to refrain from orgasm all together so i can see better results.
