Key things about the author of the topic that differentiates him from the usual porn escalation and HOCD: - He had the attraction to men before watching pornography - His friends had girls and he thought he should too (maybe if he did not want to really) - While watching straight porn he saw attractive men and quickly escalated towards gay porn.(Not for many years everyday fap activity and standard gradual escalation in search of dopamine by watching different things as long as they are taboo) - He stopped being interested in women (not due to depression or loss of libido as it sometimes happens in HOCD standard stories) - His sexual preferences surprised him and he mistook it for HOCD which about he read on the internet and thought he had it, even the some symptoms were different. - It does not look like phobias as in the case of others where for example they want to be straight and they like it and men only see it as a threat that can take away your identity. - Despite his initial pleasure, he did not fully find happiness in the heterosexual relationship and broke up. - Without porn or sex with girl, instead of getting involved with another girl or stop having sex and go to a specialist (a psychologist or sexologist) he consciously joined a man and looks that he likes it (There is no remorse and depression on the contrary). - He did not write that he had compulsions, a unwanted groinal response or intrusive thoughts like in standard cases of people with some kind of OCD. I hope I have comforted everyone with HOCD who felt uncomfortable ( That maybe they are someone who they do not want to be) after reading this story.
