    I've taken a step back and really just observed myself for the past few days because recently I realized that the amount of porn I have been consuming has been increasing and I keep having thoughts that I know aren't true but whenever I watch porn, they're always there. Now, the degree that I may be addicted it would be less severe than majority of other people on this website mainly because it's really only one thing that bothers me whenever I watch pornography.

    Despite being a straight male who finds women emotionally and sexually attractive, whenever I watch porn, I feel like wanting to do sexual things with men. Whenever I look outside and see a random man, or a male in general in a shopping center or in a restaraunt, I feel absolutely nothing. No excitement, no attraction. Now, I also have this reaction towards women I don't necessarily find attractive as well, but no matter what man it is, no matter how physically built or attractive he may look to other girls/gay guys, I feel absolutely nothing.

    I don't use porn to medicate my moods, my libido actually disappears if I feel anxious, moody, sad and whatnot, it's literally the last thing I want to see. I also do not believe in semen retention but I do believe that porn addiction is real and that abstaining from masturbation/porn for a while can heal and make things much better.

    I was just wondering if these thoughts I was having just some sort of sexuality-warping caused by porn or if it's just latent desire. I haven't developed any kinks/fetishes or anything of that kind, I only ever consume vanilla content and can not watch anything that remotely even involves smacking, but I feel like I may have developed an addiction and realized earlier rather than later.

    I do plan to keep masturbating as I can still achieve erections, but I feel like abstaining temporarily and trying to reboot first would be a much better option.
