Day Fourteen - Getting Easier


Not sure if it is a symptom or a cause, but the longer I go without masturbating, the easier it seems to get.

I'm sure the fact that I am steering clear of most pornography is helping. No visual stimulation means fewer overpowering urges.

But, more than that, it seems that the longer I stay away, the fewer and farther between the sexual urges tend to arise (pardon the pun).

Is it like any other addictive behavior? Liquor, chocolate, carbs, money? The more you have, the more you want?

Or, is it like working out? The further out of shape you get, the harder it is to get into shape?

Am I getting healthier about sex, or simply letting my sex drive atrophy?

What an interesting project. I too have wondered whether daily masturbation and pronography is the cause of wanting it so much.

One interesting fact comes from studying London taxi drivers. These guys have to learn the layout of the city's streets by heart. Brain imaging has shown that the brain mass of a rookie driver is augmented by 3% as he absorbs all the information and practises it daily.

The point being: practises it daily. Habits lay down neural pathways, so it is likely that daily masturbation pushes one to think more along those lines.
