For me, "JAV saved my life" is not just a meme. Years ago I was hospitalised close to death, at the lowest point doctors expected I'd die within the day. But, my last fap had not been to JAV (it was gravure) and my wish for one last fap to JAV gave me the strength to survive. Of course this was not the only reason, but I would be dead without JAV. As for /jav/, you sirs have posted and recommended some of the best JAV. This thread has been educational for ways to find more great JAV too. It really has been like a watering hole.
It has taken many years, but now I can say, I'm close to gathering a sufficient JAV collection. I have almost all I'll ever need. Even less than 50 titles remain to download: every day my JAV to need decrease, most from downloading and some from not finding and accepting I won't get them. By the end of this month I should be done. Of course new JAV are released, so maybe I'll download one or two every month. In any case, fapping to JAV will continue even if I'll post on /jav/ less because keeping up with the JAV posted about in every thread is impossible and spending too much time at a watering hole isn't healthy.
JAV is a wonderful artform and yes, after all it is only fap material, that isn't a reason to assign it any shameful or negative connotations or such that some of you may associate with your own sexuality, or perception of societal issues, even if you're miserable. When you learn to see all aspects of JAV for all that it is, your level of fkn enjoying expands. If you also learn the ability to conceptualise all things as they could relate to JAV, this makes you see the complexity of every individual piece in the production of JAV and appreciate it more. You will see the oceans of JAV are almost endless and it can be a long voyage. Or, you can build a house at the shore and every day swim and fish in the same spot. However, to understand the depth and breadth of the oceans of JAV is like understanding the depth and breadth of the world's oceans. No man will ever truly grasp the full extent of the oceans, and with JAV it's just like this. Maybe you think, then it's pointless in the first place even to set sail, if you'll always be only one insignificant person compared to the vastness. But, this isn't the case. It isn't pointless. The deeper you go, your appreciation of that vastness grows deeper and you also fkn enjoy more.
But, with this the danger of being lost at sea is real. You can drown in the sheer volume of JAV, crushed by the pressure to download everything, or you can shipwreck on a desert island losing even the will to fkn enjoy. So, it is important to maintain a healthy balance regarding JAV, as most things. We can let go and sail the oceans of JAV, but let's not chase mermaids or get pulled under the waves by giant squids. A healthy outlook and self-awareness about your own JAV habits and acceptance of the reality of what JAV is, is all we need to be free to fkn enjoy all the JAV we want as much as we want. For some, sadly it may be impossible to accept that it isn't "real", that it's performed. Even that the actresses and actors are full human beings outside JAV too, and many fkn enjoy doing JAV, even fetishes. If you don't understand that, this is buying the fantasy even outside of its fantasy context. When fapping to JAV, it's normal to suspend disbelief but, after you coom and stop being horny, your chinpo goes to rest, let's remember that we fkn enjoyed a fantasy. If not, we risk a fate like sailors going mad at sea.
The power of JAV in bringing fantasies to life is very impressive, and it's important to appreciate that effort and talent of actresses, actors and directors and cameramen and every individual involved in the finished product. It's easy to fall into a trap to think it's real, such as with fetishes. "I wouldn't want to do that, so her/his suffering was real", that type of thought. It isn't true. Remember they are actresses and actors performing. Involving even fetishes and its purpose being to be fapped, doesn't change that. Besides, for masochists the "suffering" is fkn enjoying, and as common as being S is, being M is as common, even for women. Yes, when we fap, we will suspend disbelief as if it's real whether it's wholesome dating or torture rape, but in both cases it isn't real. It isn't different from suspended disbelief when watching a drama or romcom or horror film. With these everybody expects the ability to separate reality from entertainment, and really JAV is the same. Also, if hoarding has negative effects on life, it's worth considering priorities.
Without JAV my eyes would never have opened that sexuality is so vast. I probably would be dead if I didn't want one last JAV fap so strongly. Since then I've had thousands of JAV faps, as part of a healthier lifestyle. Occasionally I still fap to gravure, but it alone can't open your eyes to the depths of fkn enjoying.
Did JAV unironically save any other sir's life?
