Internet Porn Addiction


For some of you, this site is internet porn; it certainly was for me. I feel the responsibility to say something in this regard, in that I started this site years ago.

When I quit moderating the site, I had the choice to discontinue it entirely, or hand it over to some fine folks to moderate in my stead. The primary reason I quit was so that I would no longer waste my time and energy on searching for internet porn. This didn't go so well. But I haven't given up.

Some of the side effects/symptoms of an internet porn addiction are loneliness, feelings of worthlessness, losing relationships, thoughts of suicide, depression, problems getting an erection, 'graduating' to different, bizarre and harder forms of porn, etc. etc. For me, it is a soul-sucking experience that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, much less you fine folks.

If this sounds like you in some way, you may have to reach some rock bottom point before you do something about it. There is more help available online for this problem, along with a groundswell of awareness of what a porn addiction can do to you after years of abuse. It couldn't hurt to check out some sites if what I'm saying is ringing a little bell in your head:

https://www.yourbrainonporn.com/
https://www.nofap.com/forum/index.php

It might seem odd to have such a post here, in such a place. But the kind Mods have seen fit to allow the post to remain, for at least a while. I thank them and thank you for your time.

I wish you the best.

Bob

Re: Internet Porn Addiction


I can't help being curious enough to wonder if you believe any of the content on this site constitutes porn. The moderators seem to be vigilant about removing anything blatantly sexual.

Re:


I guess that's why I indicated "for some of you".

What is sexual for some might not be for others. But if you find yourself orgasming from pix and vids from this site, it's porn in my book.

Re: Internet Porn Addiction


I think the people who run the CW & Sci-Fi Channels, among others, might disagree with you. Probably more accurate to describe this as a sexual addiction rather than using porn as a grab-bag term.

I was having trouble trying to describe this. Check out this video, in which a porn addict councelor describes why the activities of some who visit here constitute porn addiction, and not sex addiction.

Technically, you may be correct. I believe the addicts describe the material found here as "porn substitutes", or Psubs. This is a distinction without a difference.

The important thing to note here is that there are folks with a real problem. The idea is for someone with such a problem to see that there are others, and there may be a way out.

Thanks for your interest.

Re: Internet Porn Addiction


Point taken. If I had thought about it for another moment, I'd have realized that sexual addiction is simply an addiction to having sex. Probably the terms fetish or paraphilia are more appropriate. Regardless, if it's something that consumes your life in a detrimental way, it needs to be dealt with.
