No porn...better relationship

    I've ditched porn for almost a month now and I'm seeing some changes in my behaviour. My partner gets me aroused faster and I catch myself staring at him more often than before.

    My self image also seems to be improving, no more hotties to compete with in my head.

    Anyone had the same experience?

    A conscious decision to ditch porn?

    I'd probably only ditch porn for a month if I was dead or in a coma.

    Whenever I've given up porn, I've found that for about a week my libido goes crazy, but then, after that I kinda forget about it. But this isn't exactly a good thing seeing as I'm a single, closeted guy with no other way to vent until I move out in September. But you've got a partner, so that's not a problem for you.

    As for self-esteem, definitely agree. If I'm in a bad/lonely mood, sometimes porn just makes me wanna go live in a hole.

    Yes it's a concious decision. Got tired of all the muscle, the grunting, slapping, moaning etc... I truely believe that in real life, sex doesn't work that way. So I stopped feeding my mind unrealistic expectations.

    See that's what Ive been thinking for a while now.For me porn creates a dual reality for us, how things aught to be. TRY GETTING A HARD ON WITHOUT WATCHING PORN- almost impossible.

    Since Ive stopped watching porn, Ive become less self obsessed and even started complimenting myself.
