I read a few of the replies and they all may be light to your situation, and if I could be any help to the circumstance to ANYONE with curiosities in this subject I hope I am with what I am about to share. Without getting into heavy detail and running on (if anyone has any questions after I’ll gladly answer) I am a male, and I use to watch porn frequently. Now to society I wouldn’t of been classified as having a problem, maybe even noted as healthy it wasn’t hurting nobody and it was my choice. As I thought. Until I got into a relationship with someone that sex drive was out of control and by any means I do not mean that in a good way. We’re no longer together, I personally think she has an issue (almost being a sex addict) that runs VERY DEEP emotionally and spiritually. What I am getting at is, instead of examining her ways or questioning her, I started questioning my actions, and how do I end up in these same situations that seem to be getting worse? So I started observing myself and this is what I came up with from studies and knowledge I have acquired on the subject:
It is said that the “eyes are the windows to the soul” I truly believe in this statement. From watching tv, choosing what you read, to WATCHING PORN. I thought it was entertaining, and I enjoyed it. Now that I look back it was counterproductive and helped me develop many insecurities and fears that I was bringing to life without even knowing it. Also I noticed it was linked to a time where I would be down about things, unhappy about something, or anxious. As studies show that sex releases similar chemicals as dope. Now who would say I was an “addict” I watched it once a week, maybe 3 times a month, but it was a symptom to an underlying problem I had that needed to be addressed to seek change.
Likes attract likes, so if I could give you any advice, ask yourself is this his problem or your problem? And truly observe yourself to see if you need to change.
Feel free to ask any questions, I hope this helps. 🙂 Have a great day!
