    I don't beleive in God so I don't beleive that masturbation is wrong. My issues is that in my youth I was mastubating to my imagination. In my mid 20s I started watching porn with an ex. This started to spiral out of control.

    The positives

    It's made me feel more in charge of my sexual interactions and more open sexually.

    The negatives

    I despise this industry. The women in porn are barely women at all. Even with mainstream porn sites there is a worrying interest in teens. I do not want to fund such an exploitative industry.

    It's so objectifying and detached from emotion that I completely seperate sex from emotion now. It's become a fetishistic and mechanical act.

    I can't orgasm without thinking about porn or watching it. I want to immerse myself in the experience with the person I'm with and I want my imagination back.

    The Stuggle

    Watching porn feels compulsive. I'm using it to manage emotional issues and I want to find better ways, but I'm a poor self soother. It's consuming all my time now, I don't do anything else, I want my life back. After a short period I can't achieve orgasm at all, I know I'm going to have to reboot, but I find that frustrating.

    I'd love yo know if anyone else is having these kinds of issues? Seems quite religious on here.

    Antoher atheist here!
    I decided to refrain temporarily from masturbation. It might make getting rid of compulsive behavior little bit easier. I'm unable to masturbate without thinking all about all degrading shit I have seen. That kind of masturbation is not healthy (it uses same neural paths as PMO)

    People in here might seem a bit "anti masturbation", but that is just something we have to do, so that in some day we have even chance of healthy life.
    Religious thinking condemns behavior that we try to get rid of. For some people, it may make this little bit easier.

    Welcome!
    Good to see you here ready to rid yourself of this addiction. Stay strong, stay focused :)
     
  4. Agree with you. My reasons are that I believe PMO gave me chronic pelvic pain and sexual misfunction. That is the reason I need to reboot, moral considerations aside. Hope you succeed.
