Has anyone with a life-long fetish (meaning not caused my porno) been able to get rid of it?

    Or anyone ever hear of any cases where a person with a "true fetish" (meaning they've ONLY been aroused by their fetish their entire life and nothing else) was able to be cured through NoFap (or some variant of it)?

    I have a true fetish (being physically dominated by women through i.e. wrestling, fighting, or even just by seeing attractive women lift more weight than me in the gym)... it started when I was very young (so way before I ever even knew about porn) and I have no idea why (never had any traumatic experiences and actually had a very good childhood). Also, I didn't first ejaculate until I was 18 years old, so I wasn't "conditioned" to my fetish either. So yes, the first 18 years of my life I didn't masturbate a single time (or have any other sexual experiences)... So anyone know if it's possible to cure a "true fetish"? Anyone else stuck in a situation like this?

    Whether or not you can get rid of it... no idea. I'm guessing in your case "no" since it pre-dated your porn use. It will become far more manageable. For me, when looking at porn the fetish stuff was often the only stuff that interested me. I'd say it still exists post porn, but in a barely recognizable way. In fact, if I lived the way I do now my whole life, I don't think it would ever occur to me to call it a "fetish", because it isn't really sexual. It is just a point of interest/curiosity. It certainly doesn't make me think I need to rush home and play with myself. This seems reasonable to me, as if you look at a pre-internet porn world, everyone seemed far less fetishized, and for those who did have fetishes, it doesn't seem like they had much control over their lives because it wasn't being fed constantly.

    I hear you on not knowing the origins. Who knows? Maybe you had an older sister/cousin or baby sitter that wrestled you a bit at a young age, all in good fun (that is, no "trauma" technically speaking) but still left an imprint. I wish there was more research on the matter, but if we can manage stuff and keep it tame by eliminating porn, maybe we don't need to know either.
