I was wondering if other people recognize my behavior: On the one hand I think sex is healthy and a normal part of human nature and good for your well-being. On the other hand, I have a high sex drive and I used porn and masturbation twice a day to reduce my libido, to limit the time I would think about sex and to prevent me from having (too many) casual sexual encounters. Although this approach was somehow effective, it also drained me of the positive effects of high levels (masculine) energy in daily life. I deleted the dating apps first and now I see the benefits of no PM (higher energy and motivation), which is really nice. But I also see an increase in distracting thoughts about sex, which actually make me less productive. I want to keep the energy and motivation, but focus it towards goals I want to achieve (instead of thinking about sex or looking for casual hook-ups). How do you cope with this the best way? Do other people recognize this?
