There's No Such Thing As Porn Addiction, Says New Research

I'm not entirely shocked but I am disgusted and the more I uncover the more the history of therapy in america is largely a case of bad therapy and that's truly sad.
I really almost would like to talk to a therapist about this and just be like we've had a history of theraputic abuse as a nation by "professionals" who were phony experts etc.

I mean honestly this whole thing has prayed upon gay and bisexual men's SELF REPORTED porn addiction and I mean those guys are ALREADY suffering from stigma and social unaccceptablity they're probably pretty hungry for it and enjoying porn isn't exactly helpful.

I have a very gay friend and one of the up sides to George is just that he was often one of the few men I could talk to openly about how I felt about girls because Straight boys just often didn't understand it was a sensitive issue they often were NOT as senseitive.

So yeah I had very sensitive gay male friend and we've not conected for awhile but yeah...

so yeah I guess rather reluctantly I'll own that I enjoy watching it but I don't tend to talk about it often simply because honestly I spend more time dreaming of my partner teaching me french and traveling the world with her than I do about our sexy time together....

I am trying in a huge way to control the perception of myself and I know I cannot but I am pleading so so intensely for you understand that while I am of positive sentiments towards sexuality my interest in the opposite sex is NOT merely sex and faced with a girl that only ever wnated to hookup I think I'd opt for friendship.

It's honestly why I am a vocal opponent of the nice guy complex, because it's not the worst thing that could ever happen, she COULD be sleeping with you but ONLY want sex from you and that's even worse.

I'm one of the few who feels that way but it's the truth.

But One of the BIG things I did want to invite you to talk to me about and Open up a discussion about is the whole topic of theraputic abuse.

Dr phil is an abusive psychotherapist.

There's more though, Tough love rarely ever actually solves problems it's a national tragedy that so many of you have resorted to it and further from that it's a source of rage beause it falls on a POET rather than a Therapist to tell you the truth.

its abuse to pretend it does. They're mining your grief for money.

Well now. Wasn't that a lot to take in?? LOL.

Maybe this can help.
I'm 54 years old and have seen a lot of life.
One thing I have finally realized that most people will refute is that sex is a large part of life.
1/3 actually. It was a big thing when we were cavemen and it still is.
You can't NOT think about it and / or do it.
Yes. Sex addiction was the stupidest thing I have ever heard. How can you be addicted to something that encompasses as much of your life as securing financial stability??

Did I wander off base??

Dr.Phil disgust me. I almost tossed my cookies at his blatant exploitation of Shelly Duvall who's rapid decline mentally and the onset of dementia cannot be reversed through some kind of half assed "Intervention center"

As far as the porn. As a gay man, I can take it or leave it and mostly leave it as watching others having fun leaves me rather flaccid.
