Women / Rape and types of porn viewed
« on: November 07, 2019, 02:54:45 AM »
I thought I had read somewhere that if you were sexually abused, had trauma surrounding sex or were raped that that could affect what types of porn you view.  As a woman who has been raped, I have found that I have gotten to watching non consensual looking videos even tho I will not watch any rape that is similar to what I experienced because it is a trigger for me.  Does anyone know why sexual abuse or rape makes us view similar things?  And if you deal with the sexual trauma you experienced, will this help reduce porn usage? It is very disturbing to me, and very guilt ridden and I a curious as to why these 2 things are connected.

Women / How to distract yourself when you are tempted?
« on: March 30, 2019, 05:12:09 PM »
Looking for ideas in how to distract myself when I am tempted.  Tried reading certain bible versus, playing video game, and staying away from electronic devices.  Feeling like I need more ideas for nights when it is worse.

Porn Addiction / Triggers, some unknown
« on: February 27, 2019, 01:03:49 AM »
New here. I have told myself so many times that I would stop, but finding it difficult to. Trying to figure out my triggers. Some are easy, like seeing an ad for a game that is erotic and gets me wanting to look up porn or masturbate (which 90% of the time leads to porn). Other times I have trouble figuring out WHY I went for porn.  Has anyone ever been able to figure out the more spontaneous times..what is causing it?  Sometimes I don’t even feel turned on, but I stop what I am doing and look up stuff that leads to it. An almost innocent idea leads to it. Is it boredom? Frustration?  Avoidance of life?  My body feeling low and just needing that “fix”?  I am happy to say that I am working in my known triggers and paying attention is helping me to avoid them. It’s the unknown triggers or more spontaneous times that I am struggling to identify a cause. How can I avoid it if I don’t know what IT is?

Porn Addiction / Rebooting when you have other addictions
« on: February 26, 2019, 03:06:26 PM »
So for me, porn is by far my worst addicition. It affects me the worst. It makes me feel the worst. It is the one I am most ashamed of. But I am also dealing with some other addictions (video games, internet and possibly a slight problem with food). So, how do I go about handling the porn addiction without making the others worse?  I’m afraid if I tackle all if them at once that I will fail at all of them.  Some of the work I do on the porn addiction will roll over onto the others. So if I work on processing my emotions, I will be less likely to overeat when I am not hungry.  Has anyone had a few addictions at once and how did you deal with the ?
