    i'm talking about novels you can find on xxx sites ;) because if its novel it doesn't stimulate your brain so much like video porn

    Are you reading it for sexual stimulation/gratification?

    If yes, then yes.

    Duh! Obviously; you don't need anyone to tel you the answer. You are smart enough to figure it - YES!

    Don't be let down. Hold your vision high and keep your spirit high. This is not rocket science. Don't negotiate your inner devils and they won't be able to scheme anything on you in return. Don't play at the casino, the house has a guaranteed margin and is sure to win - ALWAYS.

    It's just another way of overstimulating the brain. Please stay away from it

    As stated in the "what are you reading" thread, I randomly started "The Kiss Quotient", which turned out to be a very descriptive chick flick.

    Does not mix well with NoFap, so no, I would steer clear!

    Believe it or not, even your own imagination if you just let it go wild is probably not good for you either !
    No erotic books, over sexual music videos , oversexual movies or TV , yoga videos , workout videos , dance videos. Female wrestling. All of this stuff can be triggering and will eventually lead to relapse if you are stuck in it

  8. You can find novels on xxx sites????
    That should answer your question right there. ;)

    Personally I have chosen to avoid all types of erotic novels and stories. In reality, they'd probably just let me down anyway because I would be seeking extreme porn levels of arousal and wouldn't find it. I think it would just be a let down.
    That said, I read a lot of fiction and a few times have been incredibly triggered or aroused by certain (shameful and unhealthy) bits and pieces of an otherwise "normal" novel. Graphic descriptions of two people making love does nothing for me. :rolleyes:

    this is what would be described as a porn substitute or p-sub. check the glossary if you haven't already.
