Porn addiction can impact anyone, regardless of gender identity.

Problems related to problematic porn use are often presented as an issue that only men deal with. This couldn’t be further from reality. The recovery community consists of people from a wide variety of gender identities, including trans, nonbinary, gender-fluid, gender-neutral, and agender individuals.

NoFap is a website that provides resources and peer support to people who struggle with excessive porn use. NoFap was created for porn addicts, made by recovering porn addicts. While anyone pursuing healthier sexual habits are welcome to utilize any part of NoFap, we also have set up specific subcommunities which are available for our LGBTQ+ community members.

Not acknowledging the diversity of recovering porn addicts can lead to problems.

Falsely framing problematic porn use, excessive porn use, porn addiction, and porn-related problems as issues that only impact men can lead to unnecessary feelings of isolation and shame for the many non-men who struggle with them.

Recovery is Possible

Rather than feeling like your sexual habits are negatively impacting your life, you can find a healthy balance with them. Hundreds of thousands of people from various walks of life have made significant strides towards reining in out-of-control porn use and improving their lives as a result. You can too!

I started the journey of recovery to discover my true sexuality and through that journey also came to realize that I don’t have accept the labels people put on and try to live up to their expectations of how I should act. I can just be me. That’s when I came out as nonbinary. […] I will be forever grateful for NoFap and all the wonderful people on this platform who have encouraged me and rooted for me on this path of recovery. I have discovered so many things about myself since I started rebooting.

Tips and Resources

Consider joining our forums for peer support. If you prefer to connect with others who are like-minded or who are of the same or similar gender identity, consider joining the peer-organized “LGTBQ Fapstronaut Alliance” or the “Genderqueer Community”. You can also perform a search or post a thread to find other members of the same gender identity. Once you have an account set up, you will be able to read the many stories posted by LGBTQ+ community members. Please consider anonymously sharing your own story as well.

Let us know your pronouns! A long time ago, NoFap added the ability to choose your pronouns on its forum. Please feel free to set your pronouns to let others know how to refer to you. Please be respectful of other people’s pronouns and don’t make any assumptions about the gender of the person you are communicating with. Consider using gender-inclusive language in your communications, such as posting “hello Fapstronauts” instead of “hello Brothers.”

NoFap vigorously keeps hate off of its platforms. We have established numerous policies that adopt and go above and beyond the Southern Poverty Law Center’s terms of service recommendations.

Consider finding a gender-affirming therapist who is well-versed in problematic porn use. We have published a guide on finding a porn addiction therapist – and there are resources online for finding LGBTQ-friendly therapists in your area.

Consider joining our live peer support network. Our live support community includes many LGBTQ+ people, including trans and nonbinary people. We have additional calls available to provide a safe space to discuss LGBTQ-related topics or just hang out with other LGBTQ+ people and allies.

Remember, you are not alone.

If you are somebody who struggles with excessive porn use, NoFap is a safe place for you to get support from others going through similar experiences. And you have a place within the recovery community. Porn addiction, problematic porn use, and porn-related issues can impact anyone, regardless of gender identity. We hope that you join NoFap today and get started with your journey towards healthier sexual habits.

Quitting porn has been instrumental for me in order to understand my true nature. […] Now that I’m free for several months, I am much more confident in my genderqueer identity. I know who I am.
