Status A close call yesterday. I got my sperm cloth out (I know that's yucky) and was almost masturbating before I decided that I didn't want to ruin my 1 week streak and have to explain to you guys that I just wasn't trying. I think it was the closest I've come to masturbating while turning it down for the past few years. I wanted to masturbate for the release and pleasure of it, but one of the reasons I stopped is that I've noticed that masturbation does not give me much release or pleasure, so there's not much point in doing it anyway. I think it's what Your Brain on Porn says about porn addiction, "frequent masturbation, little satisfaction". I viewed a slightly sexy small, still picture of a woman in a modest bathing suit yesterday or the day before. I think things that are ever so slightly sexy and don't give me the impulse to masturbate might actually be good for me and help me reboot. To-do Continue to avoid gratuitously sexy movies, pictures and music videos. And I think I need to reward myself for going a week no P/FMO, though maybe a cake is too much. I'm not sure what.
