I've been researching alot of info on the subject matter for the past several hours but can't seem to find anything conclusive. I want to know if it's possible to overcome fetishes you've had your entire life. a little bit of background, i'm currently an 18 year old male and suffer from a femdom fetish. it is highly destructive to my life and i can see myself heading down a dark path, sacrificing social relationships and forsaking my freedom. this fetish has already hindered many relationships in the past. i've had the fetish for as long as i can remember. i believe it has something to do with my upbringing but am not certain. my father has always been extremely dominant, commanding, and controlling. my mother has always been extremely submissive to him. this is the type of relationship i've found sexually enticing(with me being in mother's position). i first noticed the link between femdom and my upbringing when i looked at the type of girls i've been attracted to. they have all shared a million qualities with my father and almost none with my mother. i had tried to reboot before a month ago and it worked for 4 days but then i gave in. i felt great and libido was extremely high. but i kept doubting whether it would work and whether i would be hurting my body. those doubts lead me to give in. i couldnt find enough evidence specifically for someone in my case who has had the fetish addiction my entire life, and thought it might be impossible to overcome. all the journals of those in similiar circumstances which i've read had been 70+ days into reboot and still never completely kicked the fetish. i am really scared of having to live with this over my shoulder for my entire life. in addition i'd read that alot of reboots made people sex crazed and it was impossible for them to concentrate on anything but sex. i'm also afraid of that happening to me. what would happen if i reboot and somehow lose the fetish and then go back to occasionally masterbating? would the fetish be gone or re-emerge? i don't know what to think or believe with this because nothing seems certain, i just want to improve my life and stop this before it consumes me. i know at times i go back to thinking that this is what i really want and that there is no other way, i can never even imagine anything else being attractive (i literally have never once been turned on by a females body, just the idea of them dominating me), but i know that objectively keeping the fetish isn't good for me. can anyone give me any advice or point me in the right direction? i'd really appreciate it. i'm just hoping that creating this account and talking to you guys will help me be more committed.
