What if I masturbate or watch porn without orgasm

Some persons undergoing the rebooting process believe that as long as they avoid ejaculation, they are successfully rebooting. This leads them to start an unhelpful practice called edging. It is masturbating up to the edge of orgasm, then revving up again.

Three common versions of edging:

  • Watching porn without masturbating
  • Masturbating with viewing of porn, no ejaculation
  • Masturbating without porn and no ejaculation.

Since a reboot by definition doesn’t involve porn or porn substitutes, 1 & 2 make no sense. For those trying to quit porn, edging while viewing porn is worse than having an orgasm.

If you are edging to porn : Edging can keep dopamine levels high for hours. These high dopamine levels push a reward circuit to repeat it again and again. It conditions your sexual arousal to everything related to porn use. dopamine increases when something is better than expected but drops when expectations are not met. When real sex doesn’t match porn, dopamine drops along with your excitement and erections.

If you are edging without porn: this is not similar to being with a partner. Sex means wiring your sexual response to another person. It is important to know that sexual stimulation is the highest level of naturally produced dopamine. It is at a peak while you edge. At orgasm, prolactin rises, which decreases the dopamine to lower levels and hampers its release.

Some urologists also suggest not to edge because it can cause pain in the testicles and cause many problems in the prostate. Conclusion: edging is not the correct way to recover. It just increases your dopamine and slows down the recovery. It is not a good practice and won’t help you to stop fapping . Installing a porn blocker app will help in staying away from porn.
