How to Become a Sex God | Gregor Schmidinger | TEDxDonauinsel

5461 ratings | 592181 views
Gregor suffered from one of the worst nightmares of a 20-something guy, erectile dysfunction. Once he knew the cause, he decided to not only reverse his ED but he also wanted to make up for all the lost years by becoming a Sex God. Little did he know, that he first had to completely revise his definition of a Sex God with the help of the Greek philosopher Plato. Gregor Schmidinger is a filmmaker living in Vienna, Austria. He studied screenwriting at the University of California Los Angeles and is currently working on his debut feature film Nevrland, that artistically explores the themes of sexuality and pornography. In 2012, he started his blog the Sex God Project, where he wrote about his personal experiences with porn-induced erectile dysfunction and quitting porn. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

I started watching porn when I was 8 years old, today I AM a sex God. If you know how to use your brain correctly there will be no problem, I'm not a pedophile or a rapist. I love women and sex and my sexual activity remains at the top always getting better. And I still watch porn 💪

You learn to do the dishes, you make your own honey do list because you can read her mind, you do the honey do list, hang on her every word for real, you remain a challenge as it is important to be a vampire, werewolf, billionaire, or Doctor. (Just kidding)Protect her from harm, make her feel safe from the body shaming, show her she is the only one you have eyes for...you go for the record and see how many orgasms you can give her. Once you take the focus off yourself you will realize what it is like to be ONE. Mind, body, and spirit. Gotta go I have to go do the dishes...

I don't mean to minimize or negate the struggle he was dealing with but I do believe that a different kind of porn could have been just as helpful in his recovery as the type of porn that caused the issues in the first place. Something that demonstrated the type of sexual relationships he was trying to create

There's nothing wrong with porn and it will NOT cause erectile dysfunction. ED has a host of psychological causes that cannot be reversed by PLATO, but by competent professional help and finding and treating the root cause. Praying to a potted plant or swearing off wanking your crank won't do it!!

His method of weening himself off of the porn addiction via the use of awareness and willpower rather than guilt and shame could probably help with many compulsions and addictions. Guilt and shame really only feed the cycle by causing you to swing from extremes without correcting the core issues. Suppression breeds tension and relapse.

There's merit to aspects of what he's saying. I can't relate to ANYTHING he's saying. Has anyone else naturally navigated around these "negativities" by having always had a thousand times more "awareness" than this geeky simpleton? I mean may he enjoy his kingdom, just think a little deeper than this if you wan't to be of any value to others. He's describing a passive lack of awareness. I don't give a fuck what you're doing but, I have this natural disgust, and rage that someone could possibly get erectile disfunction from being psychologically desensitized by porn. I personally hope the government kills everyone who doesn't develop their own imagination, and ability to visualize, sense, and intuit, but that's none of my business. That's such an individual thing. No one is arguing against moderation. A lot of the so called problems associated with this general idea of "PORN" (whatever that could even mean) root from the person being a completely absent minded moron to begin with, having terrible taste, ZERO introspection, irrational guilt, lack of experience, lack of moderation, a lack of etiquette, a lack of appreciation of beauty, biology, TOUCH, anatomy... Things that SHOULD be common sense, but just aren't to these MUGGLES. I mean take your current knowledge and fucking revaluate the way you communicate this fucking story. Some people are born smarter than others. This guy was not born on a very high frequency. I didn't hear him say the cliche "it made me see women as objects" that is truly a pathetic argument. Very revealing.

Currently on the NoFap journey, I recommend not watching porn or masturbating for at least 90 days (though it depends on the person) so that you can "reboot" your brain. This essentially means that you allow your brain time to rewire itself to how it was before you started watching porn, allowing it to redevelop the proper amount/size of dopamine receptors that the abundance of porn has effected. After your reboot, however, feel free to go nutz (hehe) with both sex and none porn-induced masturbation, you'll likely find that you don't need it as much and that you views about life and sexuality have changed significantly for the better.

I don't understand porn addictions. I watch porn like once a week, tops, and I never have any kind of craving for it, it's just something I'll do when the house is open and I have the proper opportunity. I don't get how people get hooked on it, like it's not even that much better than just using your imagination

Mia Vida (2 years ago)
Mid-30s, thanks to sexual revolution speaker mentioned, along with feminist advances and American freedom, feel fortunate to not be one of the something like 1 in 3 women who have suffered sexual violence, and indeed to have always had a healthy positive view of sex and enjoyment of my own sexuality, no shame or guilt. I remember finding my Dad's Playboy, I was 5 or 6, boobs! And my mom's book "My Secret Garden" about common female fantasies, so I didn't judge what turns me or others on. But he mentioned in the talk, the difference between a few still pictures that teased the imagination, and the gluttonous image overload avail thru the internet, and the passive consumption of one vs an active creative engagement of the true source of desire and potent chemicals, the mind and imagination. Today, I still watch porn, the way some folks enjoy a glass of wine with dinner or a few beers at a BBQ. But I know perfectly well the absolute devstating reality, the soul crushing sickness, of alcoholism. As for porn ... It used to be, intellectually I knew to separate it from real life, to see and disregard the misogyny, and it was a quick fix if I was too lazy to indulge a favorite fantasy and too single to produce a handy partner to push my buttons. But the three stimulants are not equal. The speaker's final definition still skipped the definition of sex that includes giving pleasure to someone else and experiencing emotional bonding, sadly. He seems ignorant of the existsnce of the kind of deep love that brings forth such intimate generousity. Oh. The cave. Mainstream porn, if that is your sole source of education, omg that is so sad! Because porn is not meant to be educational, only provocative. And it rarely or never factors in any emotion besides lust. Love? Profit. "Porn kills love. Fight for love." Now, I am not anti-porn. I just got sick of it, sick of the extremes with pain and scat, of images I didn't ever ask for being seared onto my mind, if gay sex or tentacles

VansSkully (2 years ago)
Wow this video totally just opened my eyes on this whole PIED recovery process. His story is the exact same as mine...although he gave up porn completely he tried to project what he used to watch into his real sex which is what I tried to do as well. That being said I think that we as a society should educate kids at a young age the negative affects of viewing pornography, it is simply not worth the problems you will face later on in life because of it.
Robert JJacobs (1 year ago)
Sounds to good to be true, sure your not schizophrenic. Just joking, if you got em smoke em. I'm sixty years old and never in my life have I experienced such low performance. I have had cement hard erections permanently for my entire life since age 5yrs. And my multiple orgasms have turned into one giant non-stop orgasm. In fact, I'm having one right now. Got to go!
Richard Hayward (1 year ago)
I was the same way man...rock hard erections and loving every minute of it...hot hot women, endless situations. When it hits you, you will be like WTF?????!!!. When you see porn for what it REALLY is, you start the journey to heal. Go ahead, say 'that will never happen to me'...that's what I said too. When you get to that point, goto 'yourbrainonporn' site.

It's not simply the porn itself, it's how you feel about it. Better than "banning" pornography, is to try to change the mindset of young individuals so that they don't get addicted to pornography.

A repulsive, gay, non-functional miscreant should NEVER be allowed to give a TED talk. TED talks used to be given by knowledgable people. Educated, worthwhile human beings. Not by miscreants. Next we will have the creatures from the deep, dark web being given center stage as model citizens of the Human race. I reject this trash absolutely, completely, permanently.
