Watching porn is one of the most popular sexual activities for many people. It’s simply a way to get intimate with yourself by watching other people do it. We have powerful neurons in our body that are designed to fire in unison with those of other people- and this is why watching porn can make us feel like we’re having sex ourselves. That being said – watching porn has its bad side. It’s so good that it can get very bad. Namely, many people are getting addicted to watching porn – and many of them aren’t even aware of it.
The first thing that you would need to do is admit to yourself that you’re addicted to porn. This is not something that you should be ashamed of to admit – it can literally happen to anyone. And the way to know whether you’re addicted to porn is pretty straightforward. If you have come to reach a level when watching people have sex is much more pleasurable for you than having sex yourself – then this is a red flag. If you watch porn every day for multiple hours per day – then this too is a red flag.
Next, it’s time to talk with your closest friends and family. Beware of the people that you will put in this circle (this is a subject for another article). If you’re not careful, then information about the fact that you’re addicted to porn may see the light of day and many people may get to know this. As we all know, not all people are benevolent towards others – some may try to make fun of you. If you have high mental fortitude then this won’t be a problem for you – but we believe that we speak for most people when we say that it can be rather embarrassing if everyone knows that you’re addicted to porn.
The point of talking to your closest friends is that they will have some advice to give to you. You will also get to frame your addiction in your own words and give it structure. It won’t be chaotic any longer. The more you know about yourself and the more you turn the things you feel into a structure – the better off you will be prepared to master yourself.
If you believe that things have gotten way out of hand – then we suggest that you consult with a professional. Addiction to porn – while not life-threatening – can still be a serious thing that hinders your progress and growth in life. And this is why it’s recommended that you handle this sexual problem as soon as possible.
That being said, it’s also important not to over diagnose yourself. If you enjoy watching porn sporadically – then, by all means, knock yourself out (no pun intended). Porn can even teach you some things about new sex positions and ways in which you can make sex more pleasurable for yourself and your sexual partner. It’s only when things get out of hand that you need to start taking it seriously and start fixing your porn addiction problem.
