Do you get turned on with your own naked reflection?

    Watching yourself in the mirror naked, does that become a temptation for yourself?

    It's something that I've noticed about myself after a shower because I'm trying to work out more and I'm seeing some small results showing on my body. Maybe I'm admiring myself too much or haven't seen a naked body in a while.
     
  2. Nah, not for me.

    In my opinion, this just stems from the mindset of masturbation. Masturbation is about self, self gratification, self indulgence. The lust for and towards self. This will fade away more and more as you continue to reboot.

    I get turned on by both the guys and girls, so I think that be another reason why would get turned on with my reflection.

    However, do other straight or non-straight guys feel this way about their own reflection?

    Yeah I get turned on a bit when I see myself naked. I think it's just because we associate nudity with sex. It's kind of a trigger in that way. Where's the only other place you see penis? Porn - so we probably relate it to that in some way.

    Yes!, i'm very self-conscious about my narcissism, and having a look at myself at the mirror having a pump after the gym naked about to enter the shower kind of turn me on.

    However it is not a stimulus so powerful to get me watching P or M, just a little obnoxious thing.

    I'm straight but it is still stimulating for me. The only times I see myself nude are before taking a shower and this used to be a big problem for me, however, I now take icy cold showers. Not a problem anymore haha. Even today I edged a little before my shower after coming home from the gym, but Once I actually stepped in the shower, five minutes of cold water did the trick.

    Wow interesting thread. I always get turned on when I look at myself. This is something that also developed over time - maybe due to the lack of self esteem when I was younger. I can easily get stimulated by looking at men or women - but I don't consider this too unusual given what I read. I swim 4-5 days week and am in pretty good shape so I am not sure if this adds to the hyper stimulation - particularly win higher Testosterone.

    i used to think getting turned on by my own nakedness was a result of puberty, but this didnt go away with age. then i thought i was turned on by the male body, again i was wrong. so after i knew i wasnt gay, i stopped trying to figure on it, so today as a man in his forties, im still struggling with this..
