Technical Inquiry

This might seem like a dumb question but I’m new here. Is it cheating to jerk off to nudes your girlfriend sends you or is porn like the main issue in this program?

:joy: Technical Inquiry… . I’d say it clearly is BUT it’s not a relapse to feel bad about.

A lot of people here say: a relapse is that what makes you question the legitimacy of your streak.

I came to a similar conclusion. Since I started to also count peeking as a relapse I made much better progress. It’s more about the intention than about the deed in the end.

It depends on your goals. Are you doing hard mode? If so, I would say yes because you masturbated and looked at porn even though it was your girlfriend. It just depends on what you want out of NoFap

Personally, I would count it as a relapse if you really want to kick this habit. If you plan on PMOing in the future but just less frequently, then it’s probably not a problem. But if you never want to PMO again, then it’s best to call that a relapse so you establish boundaries for yourself, because that will definitely not help you quit.

Hope that answers your question :slight_smile:
