    Rest in peace, Gary. Your work made me realize my addiction and I have improved so much since I saw your TED talk many years ago. Thank you for everything.

    Gary was a friend of mine from our time together in Ashland, Oregon. He was a sensitive, kind, giving, and most intelligent human being. He helped me with my physical issues and did so out of the goodness of his heart. He is so sorely missed.

    As a woman who was addicted to porn, I mourn the loss of such a courageous man, Gary, who fought against the massive porn industry. Eternal rest, O Lord, grant unto, Gary, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him!

    Gary's courage and perseverance in the face of adversity, tireless dedication to the pursuit of the truth, and generosity in keeping us informed, alert and prepared, have had a profound impact on myself and countless others. His legacy will be a continuous source of strength, courage, and hope.

    Gary Wilson was a giant in this field, giving the rest of us courage to do what we do.

    Sending my love to Marina, Gary's son and their loved ones.

    I watched Gary's TedX talk when I was at the lowest point in my life having been kicked out of graduate program I had worked so hard to get into. Luckily the school offered a re-admission and I started working getting back to earning my degree.
    Implementing Gary's ideas on quitting porn - PMO was THE DETERMINING FACTOR in me quitting PMO and getting back into the graduate program and finishing my Master's degree. Thank you for helping so many young men like me. You lifted the veil off the propaganda about porn. Condolences to his family - they should be immensely proud of the work he did.

    Thank you for giving me a perspective on that subtle & unhealthy habit of mine at the age of 21. Although I never lost myself in this addiction, those past 3 years of consequent abstinence did wonders to my mental health, ability to socialise as well as generally appreciating the small things in life (which often tun out to be the big things).
    Without your [email protected], I may have never found the answers I was looking for.
    May you find peace.

    Truly a gifted, spirited and beautiful teacher. Gary's teachings have had a profound effect on my life and will continue to do so.

    So much love and respect for you Father Gary. What a legacy which will live on forever.

    Just heard about Gary's death and I am very sad and shocked. What a loss - in human terms for family and friends; in professional terms for Gary's colleagues and allies. My heartfelt condolences to the relatives, also on behalf of my life partner! We will always remember him as a strong fighter and, especially, a wonderful person.

    Time seems to have flown so quickly looking back now. I will most miss hearing Gary say Marnia’s name, and I will miss Marnia saying “Hey Wils” or “Wilson!!”. Good vole. My heart goes out to Marnia and Arion; his love for you both was clear and present in every conversation. Thanks for sharing him. xo

    It's taken me a few days to wrap my head around this tremendous loss. First, many blessings to his loved ones and to all whom were deeply touched by his public service & generous spirit.

    Gary wore many hats throughout his life, but all lead him down the path of service to others. I was fortunate to have him as an instructor at the Ashland Institute of Massage in 2006 and a mentor thereafter. His dry wit & no-bs attitude hooked me in immediately (along with yelling "Fascia!" at various moments). He taught me how to study in a way that I wish I had known as a child! Alas, the more I got to know Gary, I was deeply touched by his unending kindness, integrity, and unrelenting drive for truth. I'm aware of the adversity he faced over the last few years and yet he soldiered on. He was a warrior for justice & peace, through & through.

    I would not be the practitioner I am today without Gary's gifted insight and impact. I'm not surprised that Gary affected so many people during his brief time on Earth. May his work continue to nurture future generations and foster healthy relationships with one other.

    I'm not ready to say goodbye, so I'll just say "See you soon!" Rest easy, dear friend.

    I'm having a hard time holding back tears as I write this. Although I never personally knew Gary, he had a profound impact on my life. When I was in my early twenties I struggled with a pornography addiction and I didn't know where to turn. I felt depressed, confused, and lost. When I saw Gary's famous TED Talk I finally felt like someone understood what I was going through. I realized I wasn't alone. Since then I've found support online and I've experienced tremendous growth. Without Gary, I'm not sure I would have ever fully understood what I was going through. RIP Gary. You will live on through the tremendous work you have done.

    I couldn't more thankful to Gary. I watched the TedEX video in 2017, and since then I'm following NoFAP, and It's been so amazing. You'll be missed greatly. Thanks Gary for showing right directions to many people like me.

    You are a legend and your Footprint/influence on this Earth will be like a Petrosomatoglyph on a stone.

    Living an examined life would not be the same without a cogent, rational voice like Gary's. His work has had a profound impact on me, as I remember reading YBOP during a critical period where I was feeling stuck, but on the road to asking better questions.

    A sincere thanks seems to always admit the 'thank you' is not enough.

    As a total stranger, and someone who knew Gary only through books, interviews, and lectures, I pass it along anyway.

    Thank you.
