@Summer Son Hi Summer, I will attempt to explain. In this place, it is easy to lose sight of the tree for the forest, so to speak. Many people think of porn as an extension of their sexuality, and, therefore, conceive of what type of porn they are watching as a reflection of their sexuality. Porn, actually, has little or nothing to do with one's actual sexuality. We may need to develop a better, more accurate, vocabulary when discussing these things. It is both helpful, and entirely accurate, to conceived as porn as a "tool". We did not invent High Speed Internet Porn as a vehicle to efficiently achieve a dopamine high, but when we figured out we could use it that way, we did. At the beginning of the widespread use of HSIP the neuroscience had not sufficiently developed to call the addiction what it really is, and, frankly, literally calling the addiction what it really is would required a neurologist, which I am not, but the addiction is, literally, and addiction to a neurological reward that comes from thinking about sex, having sex, watching porn (because porn makes us think about sex), and orgasm, either through sex or PMO. My point it that regardless of the category you prefer (i.e., the category you choose to obtain your dopamine high from), the category itself is irrelevant to understanding the addiction. The addiction actually highjacks a preexisting neurological brain reward event that encourages sexuality and reproduction, but the reward starts with THINKING of sex. Sexual thoughts alone are sufficient to generate a dopamine rush, and, draw that out with a PMO session, and that high can become addictive. Porn categories exist as a result of a few things, but sensitization, desensitization, and escalation are key concepts. If just one porn picture, one porn vid, one porn category consistently produced the dopamine high we get the first few times, we would develop no other categories than those, but, they do not. Over time we desensitize to whatever category we initially started with, which feels a bit like becoming bored with it, and we have to on to other categories to achieve the same thrill. That happens in nature, even without porn, which is why sex the first time, if it is very good, becomes, with the same partner, over time, less thrilling. I don't believe that once an addict, always an addict, for this, particular addiction, which is not recognized as an addiction by the mainline psyc community. This addiction begins first with conditioning the brain to produce a dopamine high to a specific stimulation. The stimulation is not actually porn, but, rather, sexual thoughts. That is not the brain malfunctioning, but, rather, sort of like putting jet fuel in your walking mower. It still will work, not as designed, but, but it will work. The cure is simply conditioning your brain not to miss the dopamine high you can use porn to achieve. That takes time, but, owing to brain plasticity, it can be done. It is Pavlovian, as simple as teaching a dog a new trick, but, just because it is simple does not mean it is easy, especially when it is you conditioning yourself. There is a turning point in quitting, and that is when you quit wanting. For me, by 5 months, I had quit wanting. That made it easy. That was when it became doable, then easy. Hopes this helps. W.
