I've been doing this (NoFap) for a few years now and I can say that sex scenes in books usually do nothing for me. "She slips off her shirt, revealing her hard pink nipples" or "and then he thrusts into her", blah blah blah. Sex scenes in movies get me more often, but still less than half the time. Often, if I'm watching with my gf, I just feel guilty for not being more sexual with her or worry that she's going to want it later. But, back to books. Recently I was reading a thriller and came upon a portion where the woman described Spoiler: Trigger Warning going to frat parties to get nailed, some part of her feeling like she needed to do something shameful, and feeling like she'd really used the frat boys / jocks when they surely thought they'd seduced her. All this while she was normally a girl who attracted and dated more sensitive guys" and, soon after, she describes making love with her boyfriend who focuses on her needs and communicates well, but at the time she finds herself just Spoiler: Trigger Warning craving a good pounding . This got me all hot and bothered and I ended up having cuck fantasies that evening, imagining that more women crave rough, casual, meaningless sex with such males more than they admit. Felt sure that I would have a wet dream that night if I even managed to fall asleep before the arousal from the fantasies peaked and sent me over the edge. Ok, yeah, that happened. Here's the catch - I know that it's playing with fire . . . but I find myself tempted to read more books by the same author (even though I'm still only half way through it and still not a huge fan overall) It's not porn. It's not even erotica. It's just someone throwing some sex to spice up a thriller (It's a female author, btw), but it's still a slippery slope. One more thing that I could get hooked on.
