Drop It

Porn is something I would highly recommend dropping from your life. It is one of the key habits to get rid of in The Primer. It can keep you from ever having success with women because it functions as a cheap replacement. You deserve to have the sex life of your dreams. You do not have to settle for anything in this life. We live in a world of abundance, we always have and we always will. But we must go and take it, nothing comes to those who sit around.

One thing I will say is that if you are not having a good sex life it’s going to be hard to quit porn. And since watching porn generally keeps you from having a good sex life you can get stuck in a nasty cycle. Most people who try to help others quit porn and unaware of this. Hence you have guys who quit porn and become weird zen monkish types. This is unhealthy just in the opposite extreme. Your sexuality is good, enjoying sex with beautiful women is good and natural. Porn is a cheap substitute for the real thing. Like the difference between pink slime “chicken” nuggets and a freshly kill cooked over a fire. Both are meat, yet one is great and the other is not.

Another thing I will say is that the loudest porn opposition comes from Judeo-Chrisitans (mainstream churches) and Feminists. Two groups of people that are unhealthy in their own ways. Now I’m saying religion or Christianity is bad simple that the mainstream church is whether it leftist or rightest. Wanting, desiring, and above all having sex with beautiful women is one of the funnest things in this life. You should desire women sexually there is nothing wrong with that. That is not the reason porn is bad. The reason porn is bad is because it isn’t this, but a cheap replacement. Christians and Feminist think its bad because men shouldn’t have any sexuality (unless it homosexuality and yes many churches are pro-homosexuality).

Embrace your masculine sexuality and give the middle finger to those who would shame you for it or corrupt it. Whether it is Judeo-Christians, Feminists, or porn itself.

Below are some great resources to help you on your journey to escape from porn.
