    The word "edging" is being used with 2 (or more) vastly different meanings.

    The first one I ever saw is the one in the NoFap Glossary: "Masturbation without orgasm". Specifically, masturbating to porn and intentionally omitting orgasm, in a misguided attempt to avoid the harm of PMO.

    I have also seen it used to mean masturbating to porn and delaying orgasm to increase the pleasure of PMO.

    But many people are now using it to mean any use of anything that might be a P-sub - including things such as looking at the legs of newscasters during newscasts.

    I don't know what the solution to this is (if there is one); the Glossary entry for PSUB actually seems to cover that last use-case fairly well.

    Perhaps what is needed is a verb form: "P-subbing" or "Malingering" or "Lingering" or "Loitering" or "Being in a bad neighborhood" - I don't know.

    I'm not sure what the solution is. I just know that I come into some threads, and for a minute or 2 it's very weird, until I see what people are actually talking about.

    The former is the true meaning.

    For me edging means masturbating and delaying ejaculation for as long as possible, whether followed ejaculation or not.

    I agree I've seen people use it in the context of Psubs and honestly, it doesn't make any sense to me.

  5. EDGING is masturbating up to the edge of orgasm, then stopping to cool things down, then revving up again.

    EDGING is a sexual technique which involves the maintenance of a high level of sexual arousal for an extended period of time without reaching climax. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orgasm_control

    Those are the two definitions that sum up what is, in effect, orgasm control. The first reference goes on to explain why it is so harmful to recovery from porn addiction. It has nothing whatever to do with p/subs. That is a total misunderstanding.

    Yes. But I've seen numerous people mis-use the word in that fashion - hence my post.
