Beware! "Fitness" just means "soft-core porn" these days

Discussion in 'Pornography Addiction' started by Knight of Freedom, Apr 11, 2017.

  1. So you're struggling to find ways to fill the time you used to spend PMOing with something positive and decide on improving your body by working out.

    Maybe you're not familiar with it and start to Google around for workout routines and fitness motivation to get you pumped.

    And that's when you become bombarded with images of hot, hawty, hot sexy ladies that just want to show you the form of a Romanian deadlift. They're totally not wearing those skin tight yoga pants to get clicks on their workout videos.

    Long story short: The "fitness" industry has been pornified. Been that way for a while now. If you trying to change your life with exercise (and I highly recommend it) please be careful of the many many triggers that you will be exposed to looking for fitness information on the internet.

    I agree. Even when I'm looking up things like running stretches for an injury, I get videos or images of some hot girl wearing skin tight clothes doing the exercises and it's a trigger of course. This isn't always the case in what I find but often enough.
    I stay away from all social media as it is. Instagram, FB, Twitter....etc. I never go near them. And it's quite nice!

    I deleted my Facebook account 3 years Ago and dont go on jnstagran iTs asking for relapse seriously

    Only thing that sucks is that I cant go on dating sites to meet woman

    I have a Fairly muscular / agressive look so a woman never talks to me at first move I always have to make first steps and iT sucks to be rejected

    Also I suck at understanding hints from women

    I was on match.com in the past. It didn't trigger me at all.

    i didnt talk about triggering anything

    any time you see a new previously unseen women , dont care if she wears clothes or not, you spike your dopamine

    even a tiny bit

    my personal opinion is that if match.com doesnt "trigger you" your a long way from being cured and are still used to the high stimuls that P gives.

    if i would go looking for women at match./com or any site my heart would start pounding in my chest and i would litterly feel the dopamine rush surging

    I disagree. My heart didn't pound at all when I was searching for women on Match.com Why? Because I wasn't searching to satisfy withdrawal pangs from porn. Nor was I seeking a dopamine rush. My activity and actions on Match.com were value based and not emotionally based (ie PMO). I was actually seeking a healthy relationship with a woman, not just sex. Sure sex would come down the road if the relationship flourished but that was hardly my main motivation. I never tried for sex when I met these woman. Most of the first date or dates was getting to know each other. I didn't look at these woman as objects but as people. The whole thing for me was as the complete opposite of PMO. But that was me.

    You can obviously use match.com or any dating site in an unhealthy manner too if you choose. You could see every woman as sexual conquest and have sex be your main goal. Just another outlet to satisfy or you dopamine/orgasm addiction.

    Where my heart would pound and I would get very triggered was when I used to search for prostitutes online and browse the women's sites. Or when I'd hire a women myself off an ad I would put out and then exchange emails with them.

    I'd usually masturbate before I even met them and then didn't want to meet them b/c I was already spent. Why did this get my heart pounding? Because it fed into my agenda? Get my dopamine/sex/orgasm fix. They were objects to me who could satisfy the craving as did the hunting/searching online for them. It all fed into. Objectivity and a quick fix. Dating sites to me were not a quick fix and the women were not objectified by me.

    Nobody is saying it is. But if you look at it long enough to get your dopamine flooding in, it can head that direction.

    This is true: A lot of times I've been on a good streak, and started to get drawn into the cycle of a relapse by looking up fitness info. Even legitimate sites are inundated with softcore images.

    If you want to continue looking up information on working out without getting triggered, I'd advise you to look into the ImageBlock program. I have it installed on my Firefox browser. Basically, it's just a button on the top right corner of the browser allows you to block all images and just see text. It's very useful for avoiding triggers. Adblock Plus is also a good program.
