Hello, I had porn addiction for approximately 15 years but quit about 1 year ago after reading this site.
I did not find porn was that difficult to give up but masturbation was another matter (although my frequency decreased from about 2x per day to 2-4x per month).
Last October I was able to abstain for about three months but it ended in a gay encounter which I feel very guilty about now (I am not gay, before or since). Also I became very obsessed with sex and preoccupied with my penis during those months to the point that it was seriously interfering with my work life.
Since then I have been masturbate around ~1x per week and no more gay encounters or any desire to do so (since the tension is released before it builds up so much).
Anyway I wonder if anyone has experienced this or found a better way to deal with hyperactive sex drive. Also I am 34 so my sex drive is still big, but not huge like when I was 18.
