Just because something cannot be proved causally, doesn't mean that empirical analysis don't have any force with them.
With sexual activities considered taboo, some of the only things that could be studied in these regards was how PMO would change the lives of people today.
Gary's brilliance is evident in Your Brain on Porn. I highly recommend each and every male to read it.
Gary continues to live on within us!
Rest in peace king! Thank you for showing us that we are entrapped in a vicious cycle, and explained it to us. You helped me personally.
Gary Wilson, God rest his soul had a greatly positive impact on the lives of thousands of people. As far as I can tell he was the first to shine a light on the dangers and downsides of pornography and not only that he did it in a comprehensive study as well. The man was not afraid to take a stand because he knew was doing the right thing! May he rest in peace, Legend!
For 20 years I've been trying to stop the cycle of pornography in my life. A couple of years ago, I had finally resided within myself that it was just a part of my life. After years and years of failed attempts to overcome the cycle, what else was there than to live a life with porn as a part of it even with all of its negative impacts!? Then, one day in a passing conversation with a new friend, YBOP came up. I had not heard of the book or the author. I picked up Gary Wilson's book a little over a year ago, and for the first time in over 20 years, I finally feel as though just possibly I will one day break - no, reshape - my life without porn as a part of it. Wilson's work has more than inspired me, it has given me great hope. I'm very much still on the "re-booting" journey, but it's with the mindset that "this" WILL HAPPEN. Thank you, Gary. Thank you.
I remember when he took time to personally answer questions through email regarding addiction a couple of years ago.
Gary, your work is not being forgotten. It has helped so many of us, thank you.
Thank you for your help. You have changed many people's lives.
Thank Gary for opening our eyes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
A great man who has helped so many with all that he could give will always be remembered. So sorry that Mr. Wilson is no longer with us. His great work and spirit live on. I send my deepest condolences to his wife and son.
I was broken and now I feel alive. A true hero. You will be sadly missed.
Thank you for helping me open my eyes to reality!
Rest in peace
Thank you very much Mr. Gary for doing what you did which no one else ever did.
Your words moved people like me to see the bigger picture ,to take the right decisions for themselves, the knowledge you imparted in your book will be cherished by millions of people like me forever for the rest of our life.
Rest In Peace My friend you've done your part.
God Bless Mr. Gary's soul.
Eu sou brasileiro e comecei a ver suas palestras no ano de 2021, tudo oque ele falou sobre pornografia é verdade este é o mal desse século, grande escritor e palestrante sentiremos sua falta,obrigado por seu trabalho vá com Deus e um dia nós nós encontraremos novamente.
You were the first person who saved my life few months ago and i didn't know you since i saw your videos. I wish i could buy your precious book but i live in a country that amazon won't support it😞
I love you Gary , for saving me from the darkness , you're missed by me and all those people you saved❤
I will continue your way to save young people who are victim of these toxic videos and habits as much as i can.
I have forever been touched by Gary's work and his book. He gave me hope in the bleakest of times, and his love and generosity will keep on shining. Rest in peace, Gary, and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
What Gary did for me is just beyond. Back when I was stuck in a rut and very little content was available for my addiction, watching Gary Wilson's video over and over again made me feel that what I was feeling was not because of an internal defect but rather what the consumption around me had sunken me into. I know Gary is in a better place because he truly helped humankind and did right by so many including strangers like myself. Rest In Power!
Thank You Gary for helping myself, and countless others, open our eyes to the destructive reality of internet pornography.
Back in 2013 I was a wreck, filled with anxiety and in a very dark place mentally. After seeing your Ted talk and reading through YBOP I realised my "healthy habit" was actually an incredibly damaging addiction. Since then I've rebuilt my confidence, entered into healthy relationships and got to enjoy my 20's as any young man should. It's an ongoing battle but one I can more easily fight with heroes like yourself on my side.
Your work will continue to educate and save generations of young men and women who will no doubt fall victim to this awful drug. So I say again, Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
May you Rest in Peace.
I don't know how I first came across Gary and his work, but all I can say is that I am incredibly indebted to this great man's tireless work to help millions of men who are struggling with the one of the most underreported addictions - porn addiction.
Not only did his book help me a great deal, but his interviews always gave me strength that I could get better, and even though I still haven't fully conquered this addiction, I have had amazing periods of abstinence which made me feel born again and truly happy. So I know that I can conquer this, and it's all because of you Gary.
Thanks for everything you have done, and I'll do my part to spread your work to my friends and family.
Condolences to the family.
Gary was instrumental in helping to change my life, as well as millions of others as well. I am very thankful for having been able to receive his help through his work, which he selflessly carried out to assist those who needed it the most. There is no doubt in my mind that Wilson's contributions towards the greater good will be felt for many generations to come. Gary has planted the seed, and so he leaves it up to us to honor his work by contributing to a future that we could all be proud of. My heartfelt condolences goes out to his family and loved ones.
Gary only recently touched my life, I am so sad to hear of his passing. I hoped to draw on his wisdom for years to come (I still will). My heart goes out to you Marnia especially, my personal relationship with my partner has been so enriched by your approach and techniques, and I can't imagine the gap left from losing Gary. So, small as it may be, I feel the tears rising for you all who are left behind, and may the changes and awareness he has brought about allow some part of him to live on.
