Why A Growing Community Of Men & Women Are Abstaining From Porn & Masturbation

A growing number of men and women have quit masturbating to porn and are reporting incredible life-altering shifts in their physical and emotional wellbeing.

Published

They are known as “fapstronauts,” and they are part of a growing community of hundreds of thousands of men and women who are abstaining from masturbation to internet pornography.

Their community is called “NoFap,” and its founder, Alexander Rhodes, is a man on a mission to educate and inspire the world about the damaging effects of masturbating to porn.

What could possibly be wrong with harmless masturbation, you might wonder? Aren’t we meant to enjoy the simple pleasure centres of our bodies?

According to Rhodes, masturbating to porn isn’t harmless at all. In fact, it is a silent epidemic of disastrous proportion.

“The emergence of internet pornography has changed the landscape of sexual development and relationships in a way never-before-seen in human history,” he said during his speech at the Out of the Shadows national press conference. “As a result, countless people are having their sexual tastes shaped by porn producers rather than real, human, experiences. These days, exposure to pornography seems to be a virtual certainty and young men [and women] are therefore automatically ‘opted-in’ to potential addiction, relational difficulty, porn-induced erectile dysfunction, and more,” he continued.

During his speech, Rhodes discusses the idea that porn is a relatively new variable in human evolution, and we are only beginning to see the repercussions of its use arise in the current generation of men and women.

He says exposure to porn is so rampant that it is practically mandatory for children to come into contact with some image or video before puberty. He quotes an Australian study which asked 258 male participants about their exposure to porn. Only one reported they’d never been exposed. Even more concerning, the median age of first exposure was 13 for males and 16 for females.

In this way, Rhodes says, kids are learning about sexuality through porn before their first kiss.

Frequent masturbation to porn is causing erectile dysfunction in a generation of men.

Today, a large community of “fapstronauts” is coming forward to talk about the impact this exposure has had on their lives. They report heavy reliance on porn and masturbation is manifesting in disturbing ways­ — erectile dysfunction (ED) and anorgasmia, the inability to orgasm during partnered sex, being a few of them.

According to a Kinsey report, in 1948 less than 1% of men under 30 had ED. In 2012, Swiss researchers found this number at 30%.

And the effects of watching porn span far beyond the physical, says Rhodes.

“Different studies on porn users are showing associations with sexual dysfunction, brain hypofrontality, desensitization, sensitization to porn cues, increased stress, less motivation, relationship problems, decreased sexual satisfaction, and other life-altering detriments.”
(For an extensive list of research articles on the effects of porn, click here.)

Numerous scientific studies have found that excessive porn use has biological and behavioural ramifications.

Rhodes also stresses that he and the NoFap community are in no way ‘sex negative’:

Being skeptical of pornography is not the same thing as being sex negative – there’s a huge difference between pornography and sex. In porn, the viewer is a voyeur, rather than a participant. It is on a screen. It is available in virtually endless amounts and pirated all over porn tube sites without monetary cost. It is always accessible, just a tap or click away. To our brain’s reward system, this can be an especially enticing quick and repeatable path to an orgasm, compared to partnered sex. In fact, many people who are quitting porn are doing so in the pursuit of better sex. Quitting porn is sex positive.

He notes many NoFap community members are there to improve their interpersonal relationships, whether it be for a marriage, a relationship, or single life. For others, it is simply a challenge of willpower — to seize control of your sexuality and turn it into superpowers.

“There are many, many different reasons to join but we’re all on NoFap with one goal – to help each other abstain from PMO (porn/masturbation/orgasm).”

Men And Women Report Incredible Life Shifts After Quitting Porn and Masturbation

Within the many pages of the NoFap forums, whether directly on the NoFap website or within the large and fast-growing Reddit community, it is easy to see the profound shifts taking place for people who’ve succeeded in the NoFap challenge, which consists of setting an intention to abstain from masturbation and watching porn for a certain amount of time and then riding it out.

The NoFap community is growing at a rapid pace.

Participants report diverse and overwhelmingly positive results from their efforts, like increased confidence, reduced anxiety, improved focus and memory, increased concentration, improved social skills, deeper sleeps, enhanced abilities to feel emotions, less brain fog, and even seemingly being more attractive to females.

While some might say these are rather normal powers, fapstronauts say that after years of feeling depressed, scattered. and unmotivated, the onset of these new changes feel as incredible as real ‘ superpowers‘ would.

One user, “borninthenorthwest,” said committing to NoFap altered his attitudes toward sex and women entirely:

My relationship with porn began at the age of 13 with nude Playboy photos of Pamela Anderson and Jenny McCarthy. This was in the days of dial-up Internet, and I was initiated by my childhood best friend at the time. Although this did not seem pornographic, relative to what my peers were beginning to look at, I now see that this was the beginning. It began a cycle where every woman I met was judged by these photogenic standards, and felt no real attraction towards most girls in high school, despite being popular and well-liked for my prowess on the guitar.

He explained his warped attitude toward women posed issues in his sex life.

“None of the girls I met in college could compare to the standards in my own mind. What few girls I was attracted to, I felt incapable of asking out for a date, and often would simply fantasize about them instead.”

He admits he developed an addiction to porn, and at 31 he discovered the NoFap community.

“Since then my relationship with both pornography and far more innocent triggers is vastly different. I no longer use porn at all, and no longer place the celebrity notion of beauty on the pedestal either, and am interested in real life and real people, slowly but surely engaging in reality.”

“Fapstronauts” claim that abstaining from porn and masturbation improves their overall confidence and sex lives.

Here is what a few other fapstronauts had to say.

Thesexymountainman:

“Went to a dance last night and asked a bunch of girls to dance. Felt like a boss. A few months ago I would have been sweating and shaking doing that. I would’ve been looking at the floor with my head down like a whipped puppy trying to ask a girl to dance. Stay strong everybody! There’s life after PMO, and it’s awesome af!”

Amadadado:

“Today I am walking around with random erections all day long, like a teenager. I am in my 40s, so this feels strange.”

IronWide:

“Life is amazing and it’s only been two weeks! I have found out how much more confident I am in public, and how much more secure I feel about myself.”

TheGaurdian97:

“I finished a 300 page book in one sitting today. Before I would fall asleep or procrastinate and play on my phone. Now I can read and actually remember what I read.” 

The Most Important Takeaway

Today, Rhode’s mission is to get the message out to parents so that healthy conversations can start happening at an early age.

Educating children about sexuality and the effects of watching porn is a crucial component in preventing porn addiction and porn related side effects.

“Families need to educate their children about pornography – and they need to do so before the porn producers do, since right now minors are getting hooked on porn long before they are made aware of the potential negative effects.”

And for the ones currently suffering from porn related side effects, he offers that the treatment to these symptoms simply comes down to one thing— removing porn from their lives:

We simply want people to ask themselves the question, how is porn impacting my life and relationships? And if they do not know how porn is impacting them, they can simply take a quick break, changing one variable in a self experiment, to see what impact it might have on their lives and their relationships. Already, thousands have made the personal decision to leave porn in the past, and have gone on to live more fulfilling lives with improved interpersonal relationships. It’s time we think about and openly discuss our heavy usage of pornography. In the meantime more and more people around the world will continue to declare their autonomy and reclaim their sexualities from the porn production companies.

If you are struggling with porn addiction, or are simply curious about what others are reporting from abstaining from masturbation, join the NoFap communities through their website or on Reddit. NoFap offers many resources as well as a global support network to help you transition away from the addictive influence of porn.

Is Wayfair Really Trafficking Humans?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Allegations that Wayfair is trafficking humans hit the internet over the past few days as the company was selling utility cabinets, and other items, with human names for upwards of $14,000. Wayfair claims the listings were a mistake.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it our duty as citizens to not simply accept a company's denial of something? Is it important we look past the limited research of fact checkers and ask deeper questions? Where are these realizations leading us?

You have likely heard about it by now, allegations that Wayfair was selling everything from industrial cabinets, desks, pillows and shower curtains at extremely high prices, when in reality they were selling humans. It began as a Reddit thread, where a user who noticed extremely high priced utility cabinets on Wayfair asked if anyone else thought it was weird that there were female names in front of the descriptions of the items.

“Is it possible Wayfair involved in Human trafficking with their WFX Utility collection? Or are these just extremely overpriced cabinets? (Note the names of the cabinets) this makes me sick to my stomach if it’s true,” one Redditor user named PrincessPeach1987 posted.

This sparked a string of discussion into whether or not Wayfair was selling these items as a cover for trafficking humans. Over a couple of days, it blew up into a huge collective research project on the internet, rife full of great questions and at times false information. Nonetheless, any investigative journalist would tell you there is something here that has not yet been explained, and further investigation is a must because these allegations may very well be true.

A screengrab of Wayfair’s alleged website posting cabinets with human names being sold for upwards of $12,000 each.

Oddly, Wayfair’s product names match some children found to be recently missing in the US.

 

Although Wayfair has come out denying allegations of human trafficking and claimed the products were a mistake. Wayfair removed the product images from its website and said it plans to rename the products. The products were named Neriah, Yaritza, Samiyah and Alyvia ranging in price between $12,699.99 and $14,499.99.

“Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point,” Susan Frechette, a Wayfair spokeswoman.

It’s important to note that fact checkers have claimed this story is false, but their position is only based on Wayfair’s statement that it wasn’t true, not actual research and critical thinking. As per usual, no authentic and thorough research was done by fact checkers when it comes to this story.

Here at CE we asked some very critical questions and did a bit of deep diving of our own on this story. Our research is nowhere near done, but we have put some early parts of it into a segment of a show we have on CETV called The Takeaway. You can watch the segment below.

81% of Clinical Trial Volunteers Suffer Reactions to CanSino Biologics’ COVID-19 Vaccine

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines have shown severe reactions within 10 days after taking the vaccine.

  • Reflect On:

    Should we think twice about taking a rushed vaccine? Is it even necessary given the remarkably low death rate?

What Happened: COVID-19 vaccines have been in production for several months now, and clinical trials have been underway in various countries. One experimental vaccine being developed by CanSino Biologics, Inc. of Tianjin, China, has completed phase 1 of human clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccine (adenovirus type-5 Ad5-nCoV) and involved 108 volunteers, ranging in age from 45–60 years old.

Participants were given various levels of dosing, from low to high. 87 (or 81%) of the 108 participants experienced at least one adverse reaction within seven days after receiving the vaccination. Of the 87 who had reactions, 30 were in the low dose group, 30 were in the middle dose group, and 27 were in the high dose group. Overall, 10 of the participants (just under 10%) experienced Grade 3 adverse reactions, most were in the high dose group.

According to researchers conducting the study on the Phase 1 clinical trial for the Ad5-nCoV vaccine:

The most common injection site adverse reaction was pain, which was reported in 58 (54%) vaccine recipients. Pain was reported in 17 (47%) participants in the low dose group, 20 (56%) participants in the middle dose group, and 21 (58%) participants in the high dose group. The most commonly reported systematic adverse reactions overall were fever (50 [46%]), fatigue (47 [44%]), headache (42 [39%]), and muscle pain (18 [17%]). Fever was reported in 15 (42%) participants in the low dose group, 15 (42%) participants in the middle dose group, and 20 (56%) participants in the high dose group. Headache was reported in 14 (39%) participants in the low dose group, 11 (31%) participants in the middle dose group, and 17 (47%) participants in the high dose group. Muscle pain was reported in seven (19%) participants in the low dose group, three (8%) participants in the middle dose group, and eight (22%) participants in the high dose group.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) describes a Grade 3 adverse event as “severe or medically significant but not immediately life-threatening; hospitalization or prolongation of hospitalization indicated; disabling; limiting self care” such as “bathing, dressing and undressing, feeding self, using the toilet, taking medications.”

CanSino’s Ad5-n-CoV vaccine uses a chimpanzee adenovirus vector that uses the HEK293 cell lines derived from the tissue of an aborted fetus. The HEK293 human fetal cell line, which was designed, developed and is licensed by Canada’s National Research Council (NRC), is also being used to produce the AZD1222 COVID-19 vaccine developed by the University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute.

Why It Matters: COVID-19 vaccines are being rushed to market, and vaccines that are rushed to market never ave a good safety record. Given that even Moderna’s COVID vaccine also showed negative reactions, people should think twice about opting in for the vaccine, especially given COVID-19 is continuing to prove it is not as dangerous or life-threatening as mainstream media has been making it sound.

While the introduction of a vaccine will mean huge dollars for pharmaceutical companies, like the seasonal flu vaccine, it seems unnecessary and potentially can cause more harm than the good it could do. Vaccines for illnesses similar to COVID-19 often don’t protect high percentages of takers from the illness it attempts to prevent.

The Takeaway: There has been a great deal of discussion regarding the introduction of a vaccine, ID card and mandating medicine in one final push towards deep authoritarian control by members of the societal and financial elite. This includes people like Bill Gates. Is this the big push for total control that has long been talked about and built up to ever since 9/11? Is the promise of contact tracing and ID cards “to keep the world safe” really what this is about? Or does the track record on measures like this prove that it’s never about ‘the virus’ and more so about the control that comes as a result of the measures that stick around long after the virus is gone?

Given millions are asking these very questions, people are awakening to truths that they never would have prior to major events like this taking place. In that sense, COVID-19 and the deceit and lies that have gone along with it have been a catalyst for further collective awakening. An awakening that can push us to re-imagine our world completely, and create one where we can truly thrive.

Official: Feds Feared Ghislaine Maxwell Might Kill Herself In Prison

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Federal prosecutors took specific action to avoid having Jeffrey Epstein connected Ghislaine Maxwell kill herself while is custody. This comes after Epstein allegedly killed himself in prison last summer.

  • Reflect On:

    Would high profile people involved with Maxwell and Epstein, like potentially the Clinton's, Trump and Bill Gates, be motivated to want to 'get rid' of them both? This time, are we going to see more names named to encourage the masses to awaken?

What Happened: Associated Press was told in an interview that federal authorities were so worried about Ghislaine Maxwell trying to kill herself while in custody that they took her clothes and bedsheets away and provided her paper attire to wear instead. Maxwell will be locked up in federal jail in New York City pending trial for charges related to Jeffrey Epstein and their dealings with underage sex trafficking.

The Justice Department has added extra security precautions this time around and has brought in federal officials to guard the Bureau of Prisons in charge of ensuring there is adequate protection for Maxwell so other inmates cannot harm Maxwell.

The concerns come partly due to the fact that Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself in a federal jail in Manhattan last summer while in custody on sex trafficking charges Maxwell was also involved in.

No new details have emerged regarding the ongoing investigation against Maxwell.

Why It Matters:

Maxwell is heavily connected to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who operated a sex/pedophile ring that tailored to high profile individuals, business people, entertainers and politicians.

Her arrest may be important in helping to bring light to more people connected to Epstein’s dealings which include Hillary and Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Bill gates and other high profile names.

The Takeaway:

It is more than likely that Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself in prison. If this is the case, and he was killed, then the same fate may be coming to Maxwell in order to keep ‘powerful’ people protected. However, we are in a time where immense amounts of truth are coming to the surface and humanity is awakening to the reality of the world we truly live in. This is a process we call ‘Breaking The Illusion.’ This is a big step in our collective awakening that inspires change in our world we all know is truly possible.

Is it time for humanity to learn who is truly behind the mass trafficking of children including ritual? Is it time we understand we begin to step out from under the parent-child relationship wee have with politicians and government? All of it is connected, and it’s all part of a greater process of inner expansion we are going through collectively. I spoke about this in great detail here.
