    Hey! So yes I have OCD and my OCD is not more of germs but of thoughts. I'm kinda religious too and when trying to abstain from porn and masturbation I read a lot of religion stuff and now my problem is even though I am on day 3 after 1-2 weeks of relapses and this is my third try. I'm not having erection nor long morning wood like before hopping on a NoFap journey. And every time I see a woman on TV, YT or IG or anywhere. I just train my brain this is nothing and you should not be attracted to the breast or something which is sexually arousing and this is too bad to my brain too because even if I successfully complete the journey of 90days I think I'm going to not be attracted to women or their touch or anything because I'm also simultaneously training my head not to get aroused and I think I would develop ED. This theory (I think) has already been mentioned somewhere that if we think if something is not attractive, harmful or something, then we would eventually lose our senses to that. Currently, on day 3 I'm having a limp penis it's flat and no erection or any stronger, it seems like its very tired and this all bothers me. I know the flat line is a thing and I can cope but I'm more worried about the other stuff. I'm a virgin and never touched anyone and so I even don't know if touching them will make me horny or them touching me. As I said I'm religious and do not commit to doing this act before a wedding.

    I just fear this habit of finding women unattractive will cause ED!

    Please help!

    ALSO I JOINE 118 DAYS AGO AND THIS ACCOUNT WAS NOT USED SO DONT MIND THE STREAK!!

    Meeting and interacting with real people should help with that. In the meantime, keep going!

    I can more or less relate to your problem brother. I have OCD of checking again and again. And I am also kinda religious.
    I really liked your strategy of setting your brain to find women unattractive and even I am gonna follow this myself.
    And as for your concern, I suggest that if you can train your brain one way so u can retrain it some other ways also. Trust neuroplasticity
    Best of luck

    If I train to find women unattractive then would I not cause myself ED?? Because then I would just find them as another being and when engaging with an actual spouse my thing would not work, don't you think this could be the case?

    Brother based upon my experience, when we refrain from p and m for a good time , we get aroused even with a kissing scene on tv.

    Instead of trying not to be attracted to a beautiful woman, try to distract yourself. The best way to do this is to remember that the woman you are looking at isn't just a pair of breasts, etc. Say to yourself "She is a daughter of God, who loves her. She is a real person with friends, family, goals, dreams, hopes and fears. She deserves my respect."

    If you do this it will help. You won't deaden your natural attraction to the female body, but redirect it in a way that will make it easier to control your thoughts about random women while making any attraction you feel in a romantic relationship even stronger.

    If that's the case then I would abstain. I just don't want PIED by thinking these sensual points for men are not sensual anymore just to avoid one disease but give birth to another. Also how long you think it would take time for the thing from watching kissing scenes to work?
