Has anyone else noticed their porn tastes becoming more extreme over time?

I’ve read a few books on Porn addiction, and read a couple of articles and seen some YouTube videos. One thing I’ve noticed with myself and others is that over time, porn fetishes become more extreme as they continue to watch.

For example, some people who are heterosexual may start viewing homosexual or even transgender pornography. Others turn to child porn etc.

Has anyone noticed extremities in their personal lives, and why does this happen in your opinion?

It’s a pretty “normal” behavior probably everyone here knows.
You don’t start your first porn as a violent, rape porn
but after a certain time your brain gets accustomed to a certain category of porn (which at the beginning typically is softcore) and you don’t get the amount of dopamine you need from that anymore. So, you have to go to more extreme and weird porn just to get the high dopamine level back.

You’re very correct. I ask because I actually have a theory: What if the extreme fetishes we gravitate towards are deliberate? In other words, what if there are some unresolved issues in our past that we use porn to act out. For instance, what if someone who watches child porn was a victim of sexual abuse as a child? It sounds Freudian I know, but I can’t seem to shake that suspicion.

If a person watches a certain type of extreme genre, I think it’s very calculated based on the person, even though we may not be consciously aware of it.

Porn is like a blackhole all is needed a little push leave it rest to manage gravity then person will go deeper & deeper.

So we’ve all learned the hard way. I noticed it in my own life, and that’s why I decided to join this forum.

Yeah bro what’s your highest & current streak?

Try not to laugh: 6 days. Just shy of a week. However, last year, I went for 30 days, but then I relapsed a day later.

Do you need practical tips for longer streaks?

Definitely! I’ll take whatever I can get!

Do not allow yourself privacy & just try to dont ever touch genitals for 3 days. If you had porn addition dont you eletronics devices for 3 days.

Well, I guess that’s easy enough. I’ve actually tried going without my computer for a few days. I guess I now have a reason to at this point. :smile:

Im also using this method. I deleted instagram and twitter which was main source and i dont really open facebook unless necessary. Finally i got to day 7. Before that i relapses after every 3 or 4 days.

I agree with everything said on here. My longest no fap is also 6 days man other than that I’ve non stop fapped all my life.
