Porn ruining attraction to real women

[Q]

I’ve been watching Porn for over 8 years now , nearly daily !! I’ve gone through deeply depressions and even a bipolar disorder has been diagnosed 4 years ago…Well I never have thought that Porn consumption and masturbation could have been a reason for those things…I mean, when I was smaller I had been bullied and I always thought, my depressions developped because of that …

Well now I’m 20 years old…I had no depression for 2 years now even with porn consumption. BUT now I got on “yourbrainonporn.com” and your page and : It makes 5 days now I haven’t masturbated and watched any porn !! Its the first time in my life I stopped it . Now I begin to see clearer the main problem of my past troubles…well of course the bullies had an influence on me but I think I got lost in porn and masturbation and used this as an outlet !!

It feels fantastic stopping porn and masturbation. My skin is getting clearer, I’m more sociable and I enjoy life more than before… But there is a thing what scares me a lot…. I’ve always loved women , since I was born…but with porn consume , I think my brain got bored by women. That scares me as hell because I’m not gay at all .

But I miss the fascination for women like I had it when I was smaller , when I didn’t use women or girls as objects to jizz … I couldn’t even think normal about girls … They had to be perfect , big titted and perverted , so I could appreciate then, like in the porn movies…Now Its like a paranoia , I don’t want to turn gay, I want to be just the person I was before Porn :-( It makes me soo sad.

If I would have known the consequences of porn I would have stopped it immidiately like now….but I wasn’t aware of the consequences… Have you already heard that from people ?? That they are loosing the interest on women because of porn ?? I know I m not gay…but I miss the passion for women like in the beginning of porn consume … I’m only in the beginning of Rebooting my brain on porn but I hope I get normal again soon …Please help me with that issue !! I’m really hopeless and desperate !!!

It sounds like you’ve been through a lot with all of this. I can imagine how difficult it must be to feel as if your sexual orientation is being threatened. I really want to congratulate you on being able to recognize porn as the source of your problem and start facing it head on! A loss of interest in real women is a very common thing to have happen when it comes to a porn addiction.

What happens is that the brain gets wired to associate sex with a computer screen and the artificial reality of pornography. Your brain gets good at whatever you practice. So if you practice PMO enough, eventually that’s what your brain thinks is sex. So because of this, the attraction to real women decreases.

The good news is that all of these things will likely go away if you complete your reboot, so if you just stay on track then I have great faith that you will see much improvement!
