    So guys, I had a bit of a realization just now, I'd like to see your views on it.
    Here's what I'm proposing; just as porn is bad because it conditions you to expect these insane sexual acts that are not things you experience in real sex, erotica does the same, just to a much greater extent. When you read erotica, you imagine everything happening exactly as you read it, and this conditions you to expect such things from your sex life. For example, several people here seem to have issues with hardcore BDSM. But assuming that they only watched porn, there's only so much that can actually be done without irreversible physical harms being inflicted on a person. But when you read BDSM erotica, things can go any way the writer imagines, and that's a lot further than even hardcore porn can go.
    In light of this, I think a discussion highlighting how to stay away from much more easily accessible erotica, would be of much help to people, including myself. Thanks

  2. I see your point, and completely agree that we addicts absolutely need to completely steer clear of erotica, because its obviously a P-sub. But with addicts, you can't really say that one form of porn (P-subs included!) is worse than another. We all have specific weaknesses and vulnerable things within our addiction that are harder to resist temptation from. So one person might be extremely tempted and triggered by softcore porn and playboy videos while not having much problem at all with temptation from hardcore stuff or femdom fetishes, and vice versa.

    But I absolutely agree that P-subs and erotic literature are both absolute porn, hands down, and that we addicts need to steer VERY clear of any and all of it!

    You said it buddy, I´ve been an addict for 14 years now and it´s to softcore porn of solo performance of females. I´ve never had the desire to escalate more from there but from experience and what I´ve read on the forum, it´s equally as damaging as most other porn.

    ure 100% right. dont let ur dopamine deficinent brain fool u. u have to replace every kind of pornographic content, whether its video, audio, text, pictures, phone or whatever. it has the same addictive effect. replacing porn with erotica is just as dumb as replacing drug injections with tablet..
