Abstract

The NoFap community are a support group for those, mainly men, who want to abstain from the 'addictive cycle' of pornography, masturbation and orgasm (PMO). The main questions to be asked of this study are: 1) How many NoFappers adapted to lockdown? 2) Is lockdown associated with relapses or reboots? 3) How has the community supported its members?
