Thoughts on porn?
« on: March 04, 2019, 01:21:58 PM »
What are your thoughts on porn and how it affects your POIS?

I'm undecided if porn has any influence on my POIS intensity, but it does leave me feeling irritable and anhedonic for the day.

I don't think porn itself is a problem by itself. But a lot of times people watch it as an addict, or to turn a trauma into something pleasurable. Depending on your life experiences and psychological state I think it can release hormones/neurotransmitters in a combination and dose that becomes comorbid with POIS.

It can be overstimulating, leading to dopamine down regulation and lower mood. I would limit but don't beat yourself up too much if you relapse.

porn addiction will make you more horny and lead you to masturbate more and make cutting down impossible. As with any addiction the more you feed it the worse it grows. I was on a cycle with porn for a while where I had to masturbate every 3rd day because I would get so horny.
