New here - abbreviations defined please
« on: July 05, 2016, 11:21:02 PM »
Hi - I'm really happy to have found this sites and just ordered "Your Brain on Porn" from Amazon. May be I am just missing it, but where can I find what all of the abbreviations mean? I've looked everywhere and people just seem to know and I'm clueless. MO and PMO seem to be the most often used. I know PIED already. Once I know these, I'd like to share my story as I just started my reboot a few days ago. Thanks in advance for the support.

Welcome to the site and good luck with your recovery. I have just now surpassed 90 days without PMO (watching Porn and Masterbating to Orgasm). I believe there is a post by Gabe Deem that explains most abbreviations but here are a few for you to get started...
PA Porn Addict
M Masterbate
SO Significant Other
PSubs Porn Substitutes (Facebook profiles of hotties, dating sites or any other pixel you may get off on or trigger you to fantacy)
P Porn
YBOP Your Brain On Porn
ED Erectile Disfuntion
DE Delayed Edjaculation

There are probably a few more but these are the most common ones. Feel free to ask any question on here and tell us your story and what brings you here. Tell us what you want out of this reboot experience.

The best thing you can do is look up yourbrainonporn.com and educate yourself. Be ready to make a healthy lifestyle change which may or may not include excercise, prayer and meditation, journaling, healthy eating habits. Moderate or stop drinking alcohol or drugs including weed. The more healthier habits you can start on your reboot the better it will be for you.

Good luck! And feel free as I say to ask anything or share anything but be respectful in your comments.
RJ

Here is all the abbreviations and definitions you will need:

*Reboot Nation Vocabulary*
Accountability Partners: Accountability partners are pairs who hold each other responsible for their sexual habits
Chaser Effect:The strong desire to masturbate and/or watch porn, that sometimes hits 1-3 days after sexual acts. Especially powerful early on in a reboot
Death Grip: The tight-fisted grip on the penis many men develop by masturbating. Because it is much more constricted than the grip of an actual vagina, the death grip overstimulates the penis, reduces pleasure in the long run, and can make it difficult or impossible to orgasm with a woman.
DE: Delayed ejaculation – can include inability to orgasm during intercourse (if severe enough)
ED: Erectile dysfunction – inability to maintain an erection during intercourse
Edging: Masturbating without orgasm.
Fapping: The act of masturbation, usually in conjunction with pornography
Flatlining: Many Rebooters report one or more periods of zero libido during their streak, especially in the 2-6 week period. Transitioning from an overexcited, always-eager libido to none at all can be disconcerting and even scary for the experienced rebooter, but many rebooters report that it is only a phase in the recovery process and will pass.
NRB: No Reason Boner. When a man gets an erection for no reason. Common among teenagers... who are not desensitized by porn.
NSFW: Not safe for work. This label is affixed to potentially-triggering content and should be viewed with caution
PA: Performance Anxiety. When a guy is so anxious about sex he looses his erection. If a guy can get an erection to porn but not his own hand when masturbating, then it is porn induced and not anxiety. If he cannot get an erection to porn either it may be severe porn induced ED or something else. When in doubt see a good doctor.
PE: Premature ejaculation
PIV: Penis in vagina (sexual intercourse)
PMO: Watching porn while masturbating to orgasm. Porn/Masturbation/Orgasm. Most guys today think about all three and assume you mean all three when you talk about them individually.
PVO: Porn / Vibrator / Orgasm
P-Subs: Porn substitutes. Any artificial material that isn't necessarily sexual, but is used by a rebooter instead of porn. Examples include searching social media for pictures of people one finds attractive, viewing booty shaking (twerking) videos on YouTube, etc.
Reboot: Complete rest of artificial sexual stimulation (a time away from porn). Everyone's recovery is different in what it looks like and how long it will take. However, there are many similarities in certain age groups.
Refractory Period:Time it takes a man to get another erection after ejaculating.
Relapse: On Reboot Nation this would mean intentionally watching porn during the reboot.
Wet Dream:Ejaculating in your sleep. Scientific term is a nocturnal emission.
YBOP: www.YourBrainOnPorn.com
YBR: YourBrainRebalanced.com. A forum similar to RebootNation.
YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary. Good words to remember, because no two reboots are exactly alike.

RJ - wow, thank you so much for all the info, very helpful. I'll post my full story tomorrow. I'm either 7 or 8 days in as I don't remember the last actual date I PMO'd. I'm not finding it that difficult but I worry that my ED is actually from porn and not something else. Like everyone I'm sure, I have my own unique story. I'll start it in a new post but thanks again for the info!

No problem, I just copy and pasted the post from Gabe.

Ya its normal to question these things. For me it's definately a tough pill to swallow having ED, wether it's PIED or PA (performance anxiety) it's still sucks that my manhood is broken. I can tell you that although having seen significant improvement, I still have this thing. Patience and resolve to change is key my friend.

Look forward to hearing your story.
RJ

I'm kind of new at this, too.  The site has been so helpful and the shared experience is so validating.  What is "PIED"?  Porn Induced Erectile Dysfunction? 

I have not PMO'd in a few days and now that I figured out how to add a counter, I am almost enjoying the challenge!  I am, however, MOing and using the encyclopedia of porn in my brain. 

Managing without the pixels has not been as difficult as the thoughts.......any suggestions on how to manage the thoughts?  I thought that by weening off the pixels and then gradually reducing MO, I could best manage my reboot but I ultimately want to be able to MO without the thoughts and to be "in the room" instead of "in my head".  Better to keep MO'ing and exercising/reducing the thoughts or better to cease MO altogether?
