Human psychology is very much more complicated than just sex urges. Unlike r9k population would like to believe, living in celibacy doesn't ensure higher productive output in the slightest. It may help you from being distracted but the drive itself usually comes from deeper complexes that can be revealed among other things through confrontation with your fetishes. Freud is outdated now, but he is famous exactly because he was the one to openly address this connection between sexual desires and inner psychological issues, if you are interest in the subject i suggest you start reading there instead of reading fucking self-help author who is talking out of his ass.

Also Leonardo Da Vinci was convicted of participating in sodomy and Einstin was an adulterer. Your cherrypicked examples of devout Christian scientists prove nothing.

Anonymous 16549

And you believe that the r9k population doesn't masturbate?
First of all this idea is not from some self help author it is a very old fundamental idea from western occultism as well as Hindu beliefs.

And as for Freud he himself was a practised celibate.
“Freud held the opinion (based on personal experience and observation) that sexual activity was incompatible with the accomplishing of any great work. Since he felt that the great work of creating and establishing psychotherapy was his destiny, he told his wife that they could no longer engage in sexual relations. Indeed from about the age of forty until his death Freud was absolutely celibate "in order to sublimate the libido for creative purposes," according to his biographer Ernest Jones.”
Source: https://web.archive.org/web/20160203165235/http://www.wien-vienna.com/freud.php

It was an accusation. There is no evidence it actually happened. There are always political enemies you know, all charges were dropped, someone may have wanted him dead. "In the (((20th century biographers))) made explicit reference to a probability that Leonardo was homosexual though others concluded that for much of his life he was celibate."

One of the few references that Leonardo made to sexuality in his notebooks states: "The act of procreation and anything that has any relation to it is so disgusting that human beings would soon die out if there were no pretty faces and sensuous dispositions."

Yeah no.

I'm very sure Einstein wasn't fapping or inside someone when he came up with his special theory of relativity. He preferred to be alone most of the time and was known to engage in very long periods of solitude. Also Einstein was hardly the greatest of geniuses and his well known theory isn't very original.
His accomplishments are always overly hyped by his community.

i'm alone in my room, crying at 2am because my life is a mess. i met a guy on the internet 2 years ago, we started dating and he was being nice to me but then turned into an obnixious human-being. i really fell in love with him, i don't know why. i wasted the best years of my life. i was 16 when i first met him, and i decided to leave all of my friends behind, i only wanted to spend time with him. he told me he was depressed and didn't wanna go outside. which made sense, because i never really liked going outside either. i didn't like being social. this year was horrible. he would change his profile pic to a random cute girl, i think he was only doing that to make me jealous. but i didn't get jealous. i just felt really ugly. so i told him that he should stop doing that because we're in a relationship. (he knows i have self-esteem issues) he said i'm overreacting. then i said "yeah maybe you're right, after all it's just a profile picture" but then he did the same thing again. i felt like i was being used. then i found out that he talks about "cute girls" with his friends. which pissed me off. and i asked him why he was doing that, he said he loves me and not other girls. he was just talking about how "cute" they are. he said "cute girls exist too, you know" then i told him that if he does it again, i'll break up with him. but of course, he didn't give a fuck. he said he would change. (he didn't) the thing that pissed me off the most was when we were talking about religions, (i don't believe in god or anything, and he doesn't either) he said i would enjoy it if "muslim men" touched me. -i broke up with him after he said that- then we got back together because he apologised and said he didn't mean it, he was just "joking". whenever he gets mad he calls me bad names. last week, i was talking about the new hoop earrings i bought. he called me a whore and said "i can date multiple men if i want" because hoop earrings are for hoes. i fucking hate him so much. he told me he's sorry and that he's going to change. but i don't believe him. he said he's going to kill himself soon because he has no purpose in life. and he doesn't want to lose me. i feel so confused and i don't know what to do. i blocked him on discord and telegram. what else can i do? i just want to forget him but i can't. he was completely different when i met him. he would make me so happy, i remember feeling "butterflies" in my stomach, i thought he was the one. i guess i was wrong. my heart hurtsPost too long.

i get falling for someone online, a lot of people do that and if you don't have experience you can fall hopelessly in love with someone online.. but still, you sure did pick a braindead jerk. i'm almost impressed. this guy does care about you.. he cares about you just enough so that you'll waste your free time talking with him, so that you'll just take it when he picks on you, and so that he can sleep with you when you finally meet up (you don't even want to know how much pressure and degeneracy he will put on you in regards to this if you actually lived together). He does not love you, he may think he does but you walking away is him losing someone he can have some control over and he is finding that very upsetting. he's saying awful things to you and throwing all these sexual interests (that are not you) at your face, showing clearly that his values are shit and he doesn't care about your feelings. in his mind you are temporary, there's a girl he's chatting to somewhere that he'd rather be with, and if there's not, then he has the abstract idea of this girl (and her personality isn't part of it) and if she was around he'd drop you to go for her if she gave him the chance

Why do boys believe this is a good answer? I fucking see it everywhere, and it irritates the hell out of me.

Anon, I'm sorry all this happened to you. He definitely doesn't deserve the love you gave him, especially after his refusal to change and the way he treated you. Maybe one day he'll realize how poorly he acted, but it doesn't seem like anytime soon.

Anonymous 16620


NGL he sounds like a sociopath, no offense. You lost me on the Muslim bit, that's just multiple levels of problematic. Don't get roped into the apology shit. I'm 99% sure he's saying these things to get a rise out of you. You already blocked him on shit so I think you're on the home stretch. It's going to be hard but the longer you subject yourself to that kinda emotional abuse the longer you'll be unhappy. Don't waste any more time then you have to on someone like that.

Any wound produced by a razor is a red line… a wound isn't a scar.

Scars can form whether someone tries to leave one or cuts without thinking about scars in mind. They weren't contradictory statements.

What are you trying to do here? Pwn the attention whore for personal intellectual points?

Anonymous 16602


I did it once when I was like 13, I was going through a weemo stage at the time (wanted to be a scene gamer girl but didn't know how hence 'wannabe emo'). My friends at the time used to SH and they'd talk about it a lot despite claiming not to do it if you asked them. I did it to try and fit in with them but also for attention, don't know why but I thought I'd be like a tragic heroine and all the boys would want me. Nobody found out because I only did it once but I never talked about it with my friends probably because deep down I knew it was just for attention.

Anonymous 16606

I self harm. Sometimes I feel so numb that cutting myself is the only thing That makes me feel alive. When I finish cutting myself I usually come out of my “episode” and immediately regret cutting. I have scars (that nobody seems to notice) I really wish somebody would notice and ask me if everything is okay but the one time somebody asked me if I was okay I pushed them away and yelled at them. On the inside I’m screaming for help but at this point it seems like I’m run on auto pilot.

I know the general advice is to carry something but please don't carry anything illegal. In my country, carrying a weapon (even pepper spray) would get you into way more trouble than someone attacking you would get into. Look up the laws and don't risk it. It's much more important to be aware, to be able to de-escalate situations, to build up your physical strength and to be prepared than it is to carry a weapon that you might not even have time to take out. A lot of people feel safe with a weapon (and that's great if you do) but if you're untrained and have less strength than your attacker, it's going to be incredibly easy for them to take it off you and use it against you. Plus, like >>1393 said, we know most of our attackers and they prey on the fact that you know/trust them so they know damn well you're not going to pull out a weapon on them.

Ask yourself:
>Do I know what a dangerous situation looks like? If a guy had me on the ground with my legs spread open, would I know how to escape? If a guy was choking me, would I know how to remove his hands from my throat? If a guy had me in a headlock, how would I protect my larynx? Where are a man's most vulnerable parts (there are more than just the genitalia!)? Am I prepared to do anything to escape from a bad situation? How would my body react in a bad situation, would it freeze or would I know automatically what to do?

If you said no to any of the above, you need self-defense training. If someone grabs your throat, you won't have time to think about what to do while you're passing out. You need to have an immediate reaction and you can only achieve that through muscle memory. Go to a class with a bunch of friends, it's a real bonding experience. You can practice the moves together long after you've finished the class, to keep it fresh in your memory. I have gained so much confidence thanks to self defense classes and I recommend them to every woman I talk to. It's skills you'll have for life and while I can't carry a weapon in my country and I'm not some huge body-builder, I'm still confident that I can escape some of the most common grabs and I have no fear of a guy being on top of me because it's the most stupid and vulnerable position he could be in and I'm ready to cause him some pain :)

Anonymous 16497

Awareness is first and most important. Doesn't matter what kind of training or weaponry you have if you're not aware of the danger. (Horror movies always have the heavily armed would be hero who is killed when taken by surprise)
Be properly trained and armed. If it is legal in your location get a concealed firearm and train with it regularly. If unavailable get a chemical defense spray (there are legal UK variants) and train with it regularly. Take self defense courses and train your skills regularly.
Find a quality tactical flashlight. At least 300 lumens is required to disorient a person in daylight conditions.
Get a personal alarm app. Several apps will send your location to the police/emergency contact(s) with the quick press of a button.
This is just a quick blurb if you want more info contact me.

learn a martial art like bjj, if you're not a woman of bigger stature and don't work out as much, you want to go for that especially, since it's the art of striking judo, judo being the passive practice of jujitsu which uses a bigger target's weight against them. Always remember you can go for weakspots like the jugular or the balls if things get serious, and run away if there's more than a few attackers. >>1389 this is the right idea here if you can manage it in your state, but it always helps to know you can bust out combat if you don't have a weapon.
if the person is someone you know, more the reason to know how to physically strike and go for the weakspots since you're less likely to have weapons on you.

Do straight guys ever act nice to girls when they’re NOT trying to get laid (or get something else from them, but usually it’s sex)? I even mean just being friendly, but especially when they’re being seriously helpful, kind, chatty, understanding etc. Can you have male friends who aren’t just looking for sex?

Conversely, have you ever been nice to someone (to whatever extent) just because you thought they were attractive? Is your personality different when dealing with attractive people?

It's impossible to repair distrust with words. So it's up to you whether to believe what I have to say, these may sound like excuses but I want to try and reaffirm my honesty.

> conflating self improvement with my agenda

> without that to fuel your crap you pretty much got nothing
In my mind, degeneration is the opposite of improvement.
If you are avoiding degenerate activity you are improving yourself.
I believe that sex for any purpose other than procreation is degenerate.

> you don't care if it is [true]. It just happens to be

That interpretation was not what I intended to get across. But I really do care about the truth, I dislike lies.
Keeping silent when it suits me is another matter.
I was really just trying to avoid explaining my position on autogynephiliacs and just leave it at what I believe to be the root cause of most gender dysphoria in males.

pretty much, also there's so much naivety in thinking that men are going to post exactly how they feel to a female only board, they're going to act nice so they come off as likeable, etc, if I wanted to see them in their purest state I could go no further than 4chan to see the kind of filth that comes out of them when they're not trying to impress anyone.


Typical boy troubles Anonymous 16343[Reply]

So there’s this guy that I really like because we are kinda like “two peas in a pod” (god that’s cringey but I can’t think of any other way to say that) We say the same jokes or he says whatever I was thinking and I just love talking to him and I talk with him 24/7. I think he may have feelings for me but in the past I’ve really messed up friendships by dating and I don’t want to push him out of my life. One of my best friends seems to have feelings for him and I’m worried that if I don’t make a move or something she’ll end up dating him. I feel kinda selfish for not wanting her to date him when I won’t but I can’t help but feel jealous when she flirts with him. Also, I don’t just want to boldly assume that he has feelings for me. Any advice? Should I just stick with being his friend?

Try being direct, tell him you want him, but that you're afraid if you move things up a notch you'll ruin what you already have. Do it one on one and not with your friends otherwise it'll seem less sincere and if the other friend is around it might even seem like a personal attack on her.

If he doesn't feel for you that way and you decide not to take things more seriously, then nothing changes, and if you find yourself not feeling the same way then it'll turn out his love or perceived love was really important to the situation and you were being dishonest with yourself.

None of it is really bad in the end, but you'll never get anywhere if you don't act.

Anonymous 16563

Asking guys out, or telling them that you like them ends in rejection or a date. I have friends who do this and it works out well for them occasionally, their current bf she got like this and has been with him for several years.

Besides she's friends with this guy, right? So it won't end as awkwardly as you think it would with a rando.

Anonymous 16566

Asking people out is just better either way.

Anonymous 16570

Be honest about your feelings and tell him how you feel.
If you want to be more then friends with him because you want to be close to him genuinely then you shouldn't let the opportunity go to waste by just staying friends. You shouldn't let the fear of losing someone stop you from trying because thats how it went in the past. Its possible he's mature enough to continue being your friend even if he doesn't like you back.

Anonymous 16571

As long as you're not telling them you love them and more something like "I've really liked you for a long time" it'll get teh same result.

>Where do you even meet hot guys? Where do hot guys go?
As someone who tends to not to go outside often, I'm pretty much forced to meet guys in either school or tinder. There have yet to pique my interest in school so most of the time tinder is my go to.
Hot guys can be anywhere, so I think it's hard to say where they go. Also it would depend on your region as it does affect how many people you would meet. I go to school nearby a city and I met more guys there then in my small hometown.

>What do you miners do when you see a really attractive man?

With a man who is really attractive, I will act how I usually act towards others. Just basically live my life and do what I have to do.
However, if it is a man I find really attractive (pretty man or unconventionally attractive) I would often try to find a way to have a normal face to face conversation with them. So then we can get to know each other over time. If I exchanged numbers or on social media with them, I would still not message them unless if someone asks me to. It's pretty good since I'm not much of a good texter anyways.

I may be getting married soon Anonymous 13747[Reply]

I'm 28 years old. Recently my long-term boyfriend (of seven years) has been talking seriously about marriage. I'm really happy. I want to get married and have children and, Fuck it, I honestly with all my heart want a cute family with 2.5 children, a dog, and a picket fence.

We are both from different countries, and have been talking about where we want to have the religious ceremony. I have absolutely no friends to invite. I have one friend from high school whom I'd invite often ceremony was in my country, but she didn't invite me to her own wedding afew years ago (we fell out of touch, completely my own fault).

I'm drunk, but… I'm not the only one, right? There's even a movie or guys about this.

Also, I didn't get a proposition or anything (We've even lived together most if the time we've dated, but I think he's waiting to "ask" my dad. Both my parents live him as nf want us to get married and make babies so I know it won't be a problem).

Honestly, I guess I just want to share my excitement with someone–But like I said, I don't have any friends.

Particularly those who AREN’T that way because of religious reasons.
Or are all men sexual beasts who act on their constant urges?

I’ve reached goals this year, apart from my fitness goals. I had a lame time with pneumonia. I won’t be fully ok until about February but I’m gonna go to the doctor this week and see if there’s anything I can do at the gym as I feel like a slug but my main thing is running; obviously my lungs and chest have had a bit of a beating so I don’t want to push it.

Otherwise everything else is already done or on track! Roll on next year~*
