    @Adavize... Welcome to the community, my friend. I'm sorry to hear about your porn addiction, but I'm happy you're reaching out for help.

    I would definitely recommend seeing an addiction specialist or a therapist so you could talk about your issue with them. I know it may be an embarrassing subject to broach with them, but trust me: porn addiction is super common these days. You are NOT alone.

    Also, there's a website out there that was created by someone who had and overcame a porn addiction. I've heard great things about it from a lot of people. You might want to check it out. Here's the link:

    https://www.nofap.com

    I'd also be interested in hearing more about your background. If you ever feel like sharing more about your story, please feel free to do so. We are excellent listeners and will support and help you however we can.

    Thank you,

    I dont know if its abuse, but I remember touching a lady as early back as 6 or 7 (I won't lie, it was an exhilarating experience for me, and I began to look forward to these trysts.)

    We were neighbours, one thing I do still remember is the smell, they weren't the most hygienic, there were two of them.

    I dont know if it has an impact on my current state, coz I had pretty normal teen years, a little porn here and there, sex inside of my mom's mazda (final uni year), heck I didnt even discover masturbation till my 3rd year in uni.

    It has been hard pulling out, I dont know if its the ease of accessibility, but I think about sex a lot.

    There was a time I quit, then I relapsed, I've had stints of abstinence, maybe during a fast, or a special time I'm praying to God (makes me sound selfish, I know) but then I relapse, and try to get a fix, either with women I'd chase and push away after, paid service or the internet.

    I get home and I want to log in to xvideos, as I type this, the idea is running in my head.

    Wow, that's a lot. . just tot I'd write something back maybe it might help. Anyway, thanks for the encouragement.

    use protection with women like this. i really want to keep this convo as clean as possible but i feel a need to tell you that "pulling out" is not what you should be most concerned about. man, that's not healthy practice you can catch something ajax won't get rid of.
    and this is coming from a long time IV drug user. but i never shared a needle and i never had unsafe sex. except for one time....now i have a wonderful 9 year old son. have respect for yourself so that one short lived mistake doesn't cost you your life. you are worth it to do this for yourself.

    Hello there are many kinds of addictions. All of them harmful. Some like food you need to live and many don't want to go without sex but you need to learn to enjoy it in a healthy way. I would reach out to a counselor who specializes in this. I do know there are rehabs for this as well. Google it in your area

    Hi! My name is Dale, and I am addicted to porn, sex, and masturbation. I think that many people now enjoy watching porno or having sex than drinking or smoking. Sex and porno include emotions and a lot of pleasure. And btw now, I enjoy watching porn more than having sex. Maybe because I don't have a girlfriend, lol. But I have found on https://glavmatures.com/ such amazing porn videos with mature women. I am amazed at how good and provocating looks women aged 30+, better than 20-year-old girls. Now mature porn excites me the most. Who else is addicted to porn, and what do you think of mature porn?

    If you've become addicted to it, you can try your hand at the opposite side and not only watch porn but also create it. Make quality videos, fantasize. There must be variety in everything, clothes, location, angles, and poses. You can shoot POV. You can shoot from a fixed angle. Always try to vary the video. No one will watch you on the same couch doing your dirty deeds in every video. And do not think you're the only one. My friend and I used to hang out at https://watchlivesex.com/ and think we were addicted to pornography. But we just love it all.
