    The last week I kind of lost interest in porn and I don't know why. I usually utilize it at least like 75% of the time id say but I realized i haven't looked at any in a week and i really have no explanation for it.

    What's goin on?

    Perhaps you've reached a phase of life where you find that pornography isn't stimulating. OK, now that I've stated the obvious...

    I wouldn't presume to know exactly what is happening for you. I don't think there's anything wrong with losing interest in pornography.

    I've gone long stretches in my life where I've not looked at pornography because I've lost interest. Actually I don't own any pornography. I know that many people would find that odd in this day and age that a man wouldn't own any pornography.

    For me, I have known people in the porn business. I'm a psychotherapist intern. I work with people who suffer from sexual compulsion. I work with people who have been sexually abused. I've had friends who were exploited sexually for the profit of others. I've had friends who have prostituted themselves to get by. In my opinion the porn industry isn't a pretty business. It exploits the people who are in the images created. So many of the actors and actresses were abused sexually as children. Many are sexually compulsive. Many are drug addicts who believe they don't have any other way to make enough money for their next high.

    So, when I think of all of this stuff, I can get disgusted with porn. There are times where I find it hot though, sort of a forbidden fruit. During those times I'd like to believe that the actors and actresses are doing this because they truly want to do it and are well-adjusted people who aren't being exploited. I'm a guy and I'm turned on by imagery and I have hormones.

    So, I guess I have a love/hate relationship with porn.

    Is your interest in sex still the same? Any loss of libido? Are you masturbating as frequently?

    Porn for me comes and goes too. Sometimes it's great, other times even the stuff I ordinarily find very hot does nothing for me.

    simcha, that is well put. You can see the depravity in the eyes sometimes which not the same as the spark of two who are genuinely attracted to each other and wanting to share rather than simply dominate or be passive. The visual part is in our nature as you noted. I read once that voyeurism and exhibitionism are both symptoms of the same illness. Personally, the less I want to be seen as a sexual attractive "object" the less I feel I want to see others this same way. Erotic imagery is really a false contrived type of intimacy, but the urge for fantasy can be very strong somtimes.

    Hardguard, thanks. I was wondering what you felt about having so many of your cock pics in the gallery here. I guess it would make you a sexual object. I know when I've looked at your pics I'm turned on. Does that make you feel objectified?

    I feel glad to know you are enjoying the pics I post, thanks. As far as feeling objectified, that is a matter of what I allow myself to feel. Since the premise here is large penis objectification and since I am aware this is only a small (some might say not so small) representation of only a part of me, then, no, generally I do not let myself feel objectified or used. I have other concerns such as is this the best possible use of my time or is it time to take the pics down and move on. Having a large cock and having fun sharing images is what this place is about for many, and in the end, it is what each of us make of this experience. I'm pretty sure I'd feel objectified if for some reason the pics were here against my will. But they are not, so I hope you will continue to appreciate them, thanks. btw: If you are turned on, then you know how I feel when I am hard and taking the pics!
