Thank you but it was mainly a gang of boys that called me ugly and bullied me for being ugly.

Well it is kind of adultery in my eyes. If you need to look to someone else to get sexual pleasure. I would not think it to be cool if I had a partner that watched porn while in a relationship. I know people have very different opinions on this though.

I agree with you that looking at porn while in a relationship is adultery. I happen to think my x husband looked at it at least once. I know men are more sexual in general than women. I know if I ever caught my husband looking at porn I’d want to hurt him. It just makes me angry. Am I not enough?

But if you have an addiction I guess it’s different. I have food issues so I understand addiction.

Well…I suspect if I was in a realtionship my world would turn around and I wouldn’t even consider looking at it. And I don’t really do it for pleasure. I know that I am hurting myself. I think it is underestimated that a lot of men probably do this as self-harm, while women maybe tend more to cut themselves on the wrists and make themselves hurt physically, men make their brains hurt.

It’s ruining my life, but I’m really trying to stop. I’m trying to tell myself that I deserve to be happy and to find someone to love. I realise that I have been my own worst enemy for a long time.

I wouldn’t say watching porn is equivalent to self harming.

My gf doesn’t care. She said porn is the lesser of the evils and is fine with it. You know how the male brain works lol it thinks with the little head :joy:
I had a problem with going to parlours before I started dating. I tend to get hypersexuality at times and porn is a good alternative to wearing out the gf lol
But i do understand people have different perspectives on it for sure

There’s a good video on YouTube called “The dopamine detox, how to make your brain do hard things” which is very interesting. It makes the point that your brain becomes desensitised towards dopamine, because it receives such a rush of it from the pornography and other distractions.

Because they are distractions. I use to have a few bad habits and have stopped masturbation, I never looked at porn but found that masturbation made me nervous and incapable of achieving anything the day after I did it. So I stopped about 3 weeks ago and haven’t done it since. I feel better already and I’m already making progress on some online courses. I wasted from 20 to 32 (my current age) not knowing how much harm this was doing and despite what people in this forum say, including the moderators, I feel it does immense damage. It depletes the body of zinc and other minerals. I do not consider it a moral issue, but do feel that my life has become better since I dropped the habit. I no longer feel a lack of energy of feel nervous about completing tasks. About the pornography, just avoid the habits that lead to you watching it, unfollow profiles on Twitter or wherever else that share such content, unsubscribe from emails etc.

I don’t think watching porn while in a relationship is adultery. To me that’s like saying reading a romance novel is cheating.

However it is important to discuss with your partner what you’re comfortable with.

As for men being more sexual that’s not really true either it’s actually a pretty harmful stereotype.

Also your reaction shouldn’t be wanting to hurt your husband for something like that. Being sexual and having urges isn’t something to hurt someone over.

Most of the time people watch porn for the fantasy of it. So it’s not really a question of being enough… In the occasions I …indulge… I actually normally imagine doing the things I see with my partner.
