Rape and types of porn viewed

(1/1)

MustardSeedFaith:
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.

Not sure if you still looking for an answer. But there are two things going on.

Either Stockholm syndrome, or simple rape fantasy. Which dosent mean that you want to be raped. This is a common fantasy in women who simply want to be desired and ravished by their lover.

There's another psychology theory that says people who've experienced such trauma will often put themselves in (or in this case; watch) similar situations to subconsciously attempt to change the outcome.  Unfortunately, what usually happens is they just repeat/relive it instead.
