Yay, terror attack :(

I wonder whether our moron didn't know the difference between Zeeland (the Dutch province) and New Zealand (the country in the Pacific which is indeed named after the province).

I am worried that I may have a severe porn addiction in terms of not only spending too much time on the computer watching it but also because I watch it frequently, the prospect of having sex now bores me since nothing shocks me anymore since I first discovered it all those years ago.

Just try to step away from it for a while. Your brain'll recover; also, real sex has more to offer than just what you see - smell, feel, taste.... the weird feeling of trusting another person (lel)

Robersora is right. Having sex is a much more sensory experience than simply masturbating to porn, so that is one thing to keep in mind.

Do you currently have a girlfriend/boyfriend or a FWB-type situation where you can safely and freely satisfy your sexual urges? If not, then watching porn to make up for that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We’re all sexual creatures by nature. But then again, I don’t know how much porn-watching is “severe” by your standards.

If you genuinely feel that your porn-viewing habits are significantly affecting the rest of your life in a negative way, then you should probably seek a therapist to help with your situation.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Nope, not even when I was younger and had plenty of options in school but I was too busy whining about being bullied to notice.

Therefore, I have yet to experience the act of making love with anybody be it woman or man. I do consider myself bisexual since both genders have gotten me curious and would be down to experiment. Just remember to always use a condom.

I know this is going to sound trite, but your situation is probably more common than you think, and the only way that you can seek to solve that is by putting yourself out there and partaking in social activities. As something of an introvert myself, I know how hard that sounds, but it doesn’t prevent it from being true.

Join a local club, volunteer somewhere, make it a point to try to put yourself in situations where you’re socializing with more people to possibly develop some kind of relationship with them ( be it simple acquaintance, friend, or possibly a romantic partner).

Or you could try dating apps if you felt comfortable with that.


I’ll also reiterate what I said in my previous post because this is very important: if you genuinely feel that your porn consumption is negatively affecting the rest of your life, seek a therapist. Speak to someone who is qualified to handle these types of issues.

This. But don't take up an activity simply to try to find someone; take it up to do something you'll enjoy (or think you will). If you're involved with an activity, you will naturally come into contact with others, and your being interested in the same thing already starts to provide a link, and increases your value as a friend - or more, but that may come later so don't push it.

Or you could try dating apps if you felt comfortable with that.

I have seen these lead to two happy marriages (one my daughter). But in both cases they already had experience of relationships and of how they can go wrong, so they were less likely to be fooled into a bad situation than someone without that experience. Think tool, not panacea.
