      I learned something today… and I’m not better off for having learned it. What a dumb ass virtue signal to use on something.

        Thanks for your feedback. On the website I just added clarification of the purpose of promoting it so it’s less likely to seem like virtue signaling.

          Honestly, it should be more freedom from addiction. Porn isn’t harmful until it becomes addicting. Drugs can boost creativity until you become dependent (although admittedly these can have a greater chance of harm, caffiene included). TV binging, scrolling the internet, all these can result in inspiration until it becomes a required habit

          Maybe rework the message so Freedom From Porn is symbolic of Freedom From Addiction, and the ability to generate ideas without needing to nut first, or take drugs, or scroll endlessly through videos and stories, or playing non stop games, etc.

            Yeah, I never understood the point of these nofap movements if you just substitute it with some other addiction like binge watching or doomscrolling social media. It seems like treating a symptom instead of a disease. If you fill your life with fulfilling interactions with people, hobbies and passions, you won’t even have the time for harmful addictions.

              If you fill your life with fulfilling interactions with people, hobbies and passions, you won’t even have the time for harmful addictions.

              Those things would be part of a positive feedback loop, and it might not be able to be the first part. The ability to enjoy them is reduced until the brain is fully healed from the addiction.

      Well, apparently freeing yourself from porn enables you to make even more silly memes. Probably better to keep doing porn then.
