Here is a controversial subject to cover.

So many polarising thoughts about the use of porn, the effects of porn, the dangers of porn, the type of porn.

I make no judgement of it as a means of amusement, passing the time, numbing in or out, avoiding intimacy, getting a thrill, objectifying another, comparing oneself…..

so many reasons why one or several of you or any of us might use, watch, make own, peddle, fear, loathe, be unable to live without, need when high, masturbate to, have sex to, rage against…..

It is a big subject, and if you are part of the religious or moral majority there is no discussion, it is easy to hate, reject, fear, quietly use, condemn…..

And if you are lonely, unable to connect, want to rub one out quickly, had too much coke, need a quick fix, it is a good route.

And it can be hard to put down, it can affect your arousal cycle, it can affect your relationship, it can enhance all of the above, and it is not going to go away.

Sometimes it is a good idea to put it down for a while. See what changes if you don’t use it. Talk to a therapist or sex therapist if you find that is really hard to do.

If you are looking at it for illegal thrills, then get in touch with STOPSO. Stop Sexual Offending. http://www.stopso.org.uk

On the MAP training we look at “sex addiction” in all it’s forms, and part of this is looking at what is being replaced by the use of porn if it is hard to stop.

Again, no judgement.
