    Anyone have issues with this? When I feel I have nothing else I'll just sit and watch porn all day. And usually pretty intense stuff like all the fetish sites.
    Or I'll go on craigslist looking for strangers to fool around with.
    I've been feeling extremely suicidal the past couple days, and so I've been watching tons of porn. It is a coping mechanism. It's easier to think, I'm gonna go home and have a fun night of watching porn all night than nothing at all. And it becomes very addicting. I'll start having strange fantasies all day and feel like I have to watch porn when I get home. Or I'll start talking about it on the phone with some girl and always want to have phone sex. Masturbating often for release anywhere I can find it.
    Anyone else have these kind of addictions?

    I'm getting that way. Lately all i ever wanna do is come home and pleasure myself. And whilst i am not so addicted to porn, i do enjoy going on all the fetish porn sites. :hug: I totally understand where you are coming from Spence.

    A little porn is ok, just like how a little masturbation is ok. It's only when it starts consuming your daily life that it becomes a problem. I like watching a little porn at night before going to bed and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I don't have sex, so I like watching other people doing it.

    I'm a girl and thinking about sex all the time is becoming a bit of a problem for me. I'm always frustrated as I'm single...

    Well if it's an addiction, of course it's an issue. Any kind of addiction is not good, since the definition of being addicted is the state of being "physically or mentally dependent on a particular substance, and unable to stop taking it without incurring adverse effects."

    Well if that describes your need for porn, then that should be a problem. If that is not, then, you are not addicted.

    Masturbation is a great stress relief for me whenever I start to become depressed, as the depression tumbles down the rabbit hole though, I become impotent. As to porn, why not if you don't have a partner or don't want to use your brain to fantasize.

    I can spend hours on porn if I haven't anything to do or if I'm suffering from an anxiety attack that keeps me from leaving the house. I'm not sure if it's a problem as I don't stay in the house to look at porn,also, monkeys and primates at the zoo masturbate all the time. Like throwing feces, if monkeys do it then it's fine!

    I'd like to say there is no such thing but I'm with everyone who's already posted.

    It's just kind of hard when you're alone to not get consumed with something that makes you feel REALLY good. For me masturbation feels good, but afterwards you just feel lonely. :sad:

    An addiction to porn and sex?
    I don't think it's unhealthy if you're being safe.
    But if you start to lose control and let the lust devour you then you should limit the urge.
    And between us fetish stuff is more then just sex.... It's odd obscenity... like licking feet.

    Just do what helps you cope.
    I'm a silly hypocrite for judging you.

    Fetishism is merely the final product of linking the human experience with sexuality. Nobody can fairly judge one's fetish without knowing that person's experience. Catholic Schoolgirl thing: maybe growing up a person felt intimidated and rejected by his classmates. So s/he finds it extra arousing to experience a totem of that rejection and overcome it.

    Finding people of a certain body type or skin tone is just as much a fetish as licking feet.

    My fetishes aren't normal. I've been to every porn website out there. There's nothing I haven't seen and gotten off on. It's more than school girl outfits.

    W00t, I'm the same way. I've even developed a few ones beyond anything I've seen in porn... and there's a girl here who's much the same. :)

    heh lucky.
    I've met a couple girls like that.
    But more often than not after I've been with a girl for a while she just ends up doing whatever I like hehe.
