Porn is boring

Discussion in 'Porn Addiction' started by Deleted Account, Jul 25, 2020.

  1. It used to be exciting. And to some extent it still passes the time. But its boring. I keep defaulting to porn but its boring. I am always just looking for the next video. Endlessly searching. Moments of fixation on any one particular image or video are fewer and farther between than ever. I just settle in for good enough for tonight after an hour or more of wasted time. That is all.
     
  2. Its the same as any other drug. It wears off and gets weaker by the day. And sometimes people start going into the illegal territories for their missing high!

    Stay safe folks! Don't listen to the lies!

    Yeah, after you've seen everything that Internet can offer (which, however, is a lot) porn becomes incredibly boring... and that's can help you recover from the compulsive use of porn itself!

  4. Yes. I often find myself relapsing to videos that I first saw years ago. I've stopped being excited while browsing through videos, and instead I mostly feel bored. I know how it's going to end, I know how shitty it feels after I relapse, yet I still do it out of sheer habit. There's nothing new or exciting about it.

  6. Yeah it's like a pathological dependency. We know it's boring to watch the same videos every night, but we keep doing it like a dog sucking its mother's teet. (can I say that mods?)

  7. We can't find our way because we don't have something better. Just not looking is not enough. We need to find better ways to feed (mentally and emotionally) and better sources of food.

    Never been my problem... For me the curse of internet porn is the endless variety of women. As long as there's a new face out there, I never get bored, and I could never see them all. I wish it bored me.

    Porn is boring. I'll add that to the list of reasons I have to avoid PMO.

    The problem is that there is a never ending influx of new channels, fetishes and videos. Porn gets boring quickly, but soon you have a replacement. They cycle never ends.

    Yes. I don't even know why I load it up. I'm gonna lose interest a couple seconds into the video and get on my phone.

    Yea once you get bored with one porn there is always a new one too get you excited again. Then you get bored with that one and then there is another one. It always gets boring faster then you want but there's always another scenario or another girl to go to, right at the next tab. Now I'm just plain bored with it.
     
  13. I've been looking at porn for twenty five years. Maybe I am just getting older. Check back when you are in your mid to late thirties?
     
  14. That's true, the cycle never ends. But you don't have to be part of it. And neither do I.

    It’s boring because it’s the same routine over and over again with a different girl to the point where they all start to look, sound, and act the same.

    I think it could mean two things: 1) You are just tired for the moment due to consuming too much, masturbation etc. And it will simply take you switching categories or renergising for a day or more to get back to routine. 2) It could be because you are getting cured, normally after a long streak e.g. minimum 30 days. You usually feel like the interest is waning but if not careful relapse is easy.

  19. Let us take the opportunity to really fix in our head(s) how boring, futile, unsatisfying and utterly useless it is. It will come to your aid later on.

    «The Blessed One said, "Monks, before my self-awakening, when I was still just an unawakened Bodhisatta, the thought occurred to me: 'Why don't I keep dividing my thinking into two sorts?' So I made thinking imbued with sensuality, thinking imbued with ill will, & thinking imbued with harmfulness one sort, and thinking imbued with renunciation, thinking imbued with non-ill will, & thinking imbued with harmlessness another sort.

    "And as I remained thus heedful, ardent, & resolute, thinking imbued with sensuality arose in me. I discerned that thinking imbued with sensuality has arisen in me; and that leads to my own affliction or to the affliction of others or to the affliction of both. It obstructs discernment, promotes vexation...'

    "As I noticed that it leads to my own affliction and that of others, it subsided. (...)Whatever a monk keeps pursuing with his thinking & pondering, that becomes the inclination of his awareness."»

    Gotama Buddha, in Dvedhavitakka Sutta: Two Sorts of Thinking.

    We should take into account not only how boring et. al. it is but all of the negative consequences it brings to our lives. If we think about this enough, letting go will be easy.

    It's obviously boring, but this has nothing to do with it being addictive or not. And for me I never underestimate its power. I relapsed after very long streaks (one was 10 months). Streaks long enough to make me think there is no way I can relapse because I could see how "boring" and empty it all is.

    Never underestimate your addictions! Do you think there is anything particularly interesting in smoking the same cigarette over and over again or doing drugs?
    It's dopamine addiction that we are after, and some people are more prone to addiction for a variety of reasons. I learned that P is a drug that I should never underestimate its power.
