    Hello people of NoFap, I am here to convey a sexual problem that I currently have. What's funny is that I can't get off to watching porn, but instead I would MO to profile picture of friends, especially if it's a close up of their face. I don't know why, I think it's a fetish. Either that, or there is something going on inside my mind that is messed up. For a short background: I first MOed to a close up picture of my friend, an instagram picture to be exact.

    So the question now is:
    1. How dangerous is this destructive habit? If possible, please add some scientific explanations too! That would really help me understand
    2. Any tips on how to stop? Just a short tip on what would you do if you were in my shoes

    I don't have this particular fetish but did have a social media addiction. I blocked facebook from my computer which helped. Still have messenger on my phone though.

    I have done that in the past a few times too, not proud of It. Its definitely a weird habbit but i dont think its particularly worst than using porn, nor i think its dangerous.

    I dont think theres much of a risk in doing that. Well theres is a risk other people may find out and that might hurt your social Life, and also addictions are never healthy, so It definitely would be better to leave that behind, but I dont think its dangerous per se.

    I see two main problems with this behaviour.
    1. On one side, i dont think those people like the fact that you masturbate to pictures of them, and they'd probably feel very uncomfortable if they knew. I think out of respect to those people its best not to do It.
    2. On the other hand, I'm guessing you feel guilty about this habbit and that can undermine your selfsteam, and thats definitely not gonna help you get through the addiction.
    How long have you been doing this? I'm guessing doing a no PMO is out of the picture at the moment, but if not definitely try It.
    I would recomend you trying to MO without pictures at all if posible. If not posible, try doing It with pictures of people you dont know, so at least you dont have feelings of affections towards those poeple. Because when I did It i remember i felt hornier because i knew the girls, so I imagined possible some realization of my fantasíes.

    Well, for one thing, you have to think about how your friend would feel if she found out you were doing it. Wouldn't you be grossed out if someone you looked at as just a friend was masturbating to your profile picture? In general, if you have to keep it a secret, you should think about whether you should be doing it at all. Would you be proud to announce to your friends that you're masturbating to them? I mean, seriously, how do you look your friends in the eye?

    As for the second question, if it's causing you that much distress that you have to masturbate, then avoid social media. It sounds extreme but quitting masturbation is one of the best things you can do. You'll feel better about yourself and start showing women the respect they deserve - especially your friends.

    Hey man. I have got the same fetish, been doing this for over 6 years now i think?

    My phone’s album is filled with pictures who are deleted on the web already. It makes it extra hard to delete the pics of my phone for me...

    It always made me so much more hot than P did. Im doing pmo (include the fetish in p), stopped for 3 days now.

    I think the hardest things are: the triggers we’ll constantly see when they post new pictures on social media. And deleting the albums. What do you think about this?

  6. I found that I struggled to delete pics that girls sent me. It was like they were family.

    I re-contextualized then by saying: I don’t want any pic to control me. I would delete the ugliest ones ( meaning the ones where there was a blemish) first. Then work my way down until I got to the most delicious.

    I would pitch one pic against the other until I had just one.

    This sounds hilarious as I write about it haha but it’s so sad.

    Eventually I ended with one that I liked. I would practice deleting it but tell myself if I REALLY wanted I could get it again. Eventually I deleted all.

    Really helpfull!
     
  8. Haha well it’s still sad. Obviously the addiction has a “hoarders” element to it. Haha we could be in a tv show.

    Cue the dr.phill voice-over :

    “So this loser has 1,000 pics on his iPhone he can’t delete.” And this guy over here has 2,000 photos he can’t delete.”

    What’s going on folks !?

    my ocd started from a masturbation with a female shoe, of this I was about to abuse lately seeing that porn wasn't enough for me anymore.

    I threw away women's shoes, which I used as a fetish to masturbate.
    only real sex now. I don't want to know more about porn or anything, it ruined me completely, including my tastes.

    I've done this before. Whenever I do it changes the way I view that friend. I would not recommend it and if you are doing it you should stop.
