TIPS for porn recovery 4

If you are feeling unhappy with the way you use Internet pornography and are finding it difficult to gain control of your usage, here is the fourth of Porn Recovery UK’s tips to help.

How about replacing pictures with words? One of the difficulties with Internet pornography is the way it can interfere with your own inner sexual conversation. Users often don’t even notice the way they stop using healthy, creative sexual fantasy and begin to become passive recipients of pornography. It becomes part of the desensitization process; porn really is the junk food of the sexual world. Once you use just pictures and become a passive online porn user, masturbation can begin to take a long time – it often has to because users spend so much time ‘holding off’ while they look for ‘just the right clip’. But many users of porn who grew up when magazine formats were the main media found the letters pages exciting. Reading erotic materials, even in works of the great writers of fiction, can be a good way to refocus on the inner personal sexual conversation; creating the pictures in your mind begins to put you back in charge of your sexual world.
