There is more to pornography addiction than simply loading up a website of images or streamed movies starring the world’s biggest adult movie stars, getting to grips with it and then moving onto another activity.In order to understand the problem in more detail, I contacted some of the users of the Reddit group No Fap to get some first-hand accounts of their experiences.

However, the dark side has emerged and bedeviled the world.Yes/No; Free basic profile members can still see photos, edit profiles, search, use discussion board.Paid members can freely message, start discussion thread, no daily limit of disucssion board entries. Members only see intersection of what they are looking for and what other members are looking for. Free messaging and status posting for undergraduates (5 messages/day limit).Sadly, recognition and discussion doesn’t do much to help the potential millions that are locked into this way of life.Fortunately, there is a growing network of support for the Fapstronauts, members of the Reddit channel No Fap (“fap” is Internet slang to describe a “solo act”).Dedicated to verified college students and alumni (via education database). Alumni cannot initiate or respond to contact or post status updates.
