DISCLAIMER - I do not want to make this about MEN V WOMEN or an equality thing. its simply an observation and id welcome comments from the females on this site. Lately ive been very sexually active with numerous women - this in and of itself is nothing wrong in my books. ive always had very healthy amounts of sexual energy and feel that my recent efforts towards breaking PMO are paying off in many directions (not just sex off course). i do not say this lightly and am more than aware of how HARD one needs to fight EVERY friggen day. what im finding however is that there seems to be a general feeling of loneliness, malaise and detachment out there in the community when it comes to SEX and intimacy. WOMEN are not excluded here. they have sex but dont really care about taking it further. some ive slept with actually SOUND LIKE THE ARE IN A PORN STUDIO. ooh, yeah, f**k me harder, etc...with all the passion of a carrot. what is more interesting is that this is after they actually sounded pretty cool and interesting to talk to. some dont want the hassle of a relationship or feel its simply too hard. some women seem resigned to the fact that the guy is there one day and gone the next. other dont seem to care either way. theres always another fitter, more energetic, better looking, bigger dicked dude after me. it seems booty calls, one night stands and for the moment titillation reign supreme in my city. whats the f*** is going on here? again nothing specifically wrong with casual encounters however what ive seen seems to go beyond. its shining a totally different light on my addiction and the act of masturbation itself. i cant help the feeling that society in general seems to be feeding rather than helping the PMO issue and then simply say 'its not right. it objectifies women, blah blah, etc...'. its clear to me that WE ARE ALL ADDICTED in some way shape or form. i feel that a considerable part of the population out there are MORE fake and empty than the characters we see and beat off to on the screen. they are simply actors - we are the real world here. This in part makes me say 'to hell with it!'- if they are just as fake out there as they are in here then technically theres nothing wrong with PMO. But another more quieter voice in my head says: 'keep going. you are doing well. Why should this makes you lose hope? what you have seen simply proves that you are part of the problem LouMan. Make of it what you will.'
