What about operant conditioning?

Another helpful bit of cottage cheese from the self-help industry is the efficacy of operant conditioning. Today, it’s been reduced to its marketable forms: the app the shocks you, or the app that donates $200 to the person you most despise. Would you wash you car before Monday if you knew that Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, or Paul Ryan would receive your $200?

There’s a better way to self-train: simply put your masturbatory (and other temporary total satisfaction practices) on hold.
