Ex-porn users reveal 'blueprint' out of smut maze

Recommended Posts

Pornography used to be those “dirty” magazines guys bought surreptitiously from a store on the edge of town and hid in their basement.

 

Not anymore.

 

Now, thanks to the digital world, it’s everywhere, including being filmed by students in the stairwells of their schools.

 

Allegedly, it’s found in possession of elementary school teachers, it’s found in the possession of Hollywood stars, it’s blamed for contributing to drivers having fatal car crashes, it’s been called a public health crisis.

 

Playboy has given up publishing nude images because it can’t compete.

 

It even has taken over some parts of the Marvel family of superheroes, with the newest film featuring the character Deadpool being described in a review published in WND as “pornography.”

 

Reviewer Drew Zahn wrote that the makers of the movie, “instead of depicting a character with a filthy mind and filthy mouth in a filthy business, they decided to show the audience the filth. And that’s where the wheels fall off the bus.”

He wondered, “What does the movie really gain from full frontal nudity, both male and female, stripper bars and extended sex scenes with nudity, thrusting, moaning and the depiction of anal sex? … Marvel should be ashamed for luring children into their peep show.”

 

Which all suggests strongly that the presence of pornography remains a problem for many.

 

But there are ways out, says a new survey of 2,000 ex-porn users.

 

That’s according to officials with the StopProcrastinatingApp.com, who said their combination website blocker and productivity tool can be used to fight the “compulsive porn viewing” of those addicted.

 

The organization reports, “More than 70 percent of the men who responded to the survey said the key reason for attempting to give up was the realization that watching porn was having a negative impact on their lives by damaging relationships, their health, and as well as reducing their concentration and memory. The men also complained of symptoms of depression, anxiety, and even erectile dysfunction.

 

“The survey also found that these problems are increasing as more men are becoming addicted to porn,” the organization revealed.

 

The corrosive nature of pornography was documented, the organization reported, by the Max Planck Institute in Berlin, which found “the part of the brain controlling motivation and reward, shrinks and works less efficiently in people who use porn.”

 

The result, even from using porn only a few hours a week, is that people were “less able to make decisions, less able to enjoy sex and were likely to be less motivated in their lives generally.”

 

Estimates suggest the pornography industry is worth just short of $100 billion worldwide, and more than two-thirds of men watch pornography at least once a week.

 

“The respondents to the Stop Procrastinating survey said that having constant and easy access to the Internet enabled their viewing of porn to become addictive,” the organization told WND.

 

Its survey found that an application that is effective at blocking pornography from a user’s computer is significant, as is the realization that pornography causes damage and the decision that they could quit.

 

The result of the survey was a “blueprint” on how to drop pornography.

 

“The ideas and solutions have been tried-and-tested in the real world by real men. In other words, they have been shown to work conclusively,” the organization said.

 

The group has released a comprehensive guide that offers a specific plan to accomplish that, as well as an infographic that details the strategy.

 

“The survey also found that 72 percent of men said the benefits of giving up porn had improved their lives. They now have more confidence, better health and even a real meaningful relationship with a real woman,” the group said.

The results reveal that nearly one-fifth used group discussions to help remove porn from their lives, one-third joined an online forum to be accountable, more than half filled their time with other activities, some took up exercise or learned a new skill, or volunteered. A percentage even said they took up a form of dancing.

 

The strategy includes practical advice such as deleting stashes of images or video from your computer to the theoretical, including rebooting one’s brain to diminish the compulsion.

 

Here’s an outline of the concept:
