Nate, don't make a mountain out of a molehill... Masturbation is not bad, it's good! Relieves all sorts of stress, takes your mind off your problems for awhile, lets you experience sex while staying completely in control, and you don't have to get dressed and go home in the cold afterwards... LOL

Anyone who tells you they've never looked at porn and never j/o'ed to it is lying through their teeth. The only time there is a problem is when you have a partner who is attractive to you and is available for sex, and you avoid hin/her in preference to your solitary activities. That is anti-social, and hurtful to your partner. That could cause problems.

Our bodies are an integral part of who we are, and they do rule us in many ways. We all have needs. If your body was telling you that you need to take a shit, and you need to read the newspaper in order to do that, would that be a bad thing? No! Don't feel bad because you had to get all the way to the classifieds.... You didn't hurt anyone, and you feel better afterwards, right? What could be wrong with that?

Relax and enjoy yourself, man! We've got bigger fish to fry than that...

I totally identify. It is the way I act out .... porn and j/o... guilt... etc... As I have progressed in this healing path, I recognize the drawing to the porn and then the j/o sessions to the need to emotionally connect with a male.. The csa screwed up my wiring and reenacting the abuse is the poor substitute for connecting.

As I connect emotionally, learn to trust guys and learn appropriate and healthy boundaries, the drawing to porn I have experienced for decades, dissipates.

I don't consider myself gay, but the csa coupled with a profound need for approval and emotional connection with men drove me to gay porn.... The more gay porn, gay chat and video chat I indulged in, the more isolated and withdrawn I became... It is a vicious circle.

When I feel drawn to men or porn I now recognize it as a symptom of abuse and can deal with it in emotionally healthy ways.

Hope this helps,

I hope that you all understand this is Peter's point of view that CSA has drawn him to gay porn. That may not be the case with everyone. I was drawn to gay porn and it had nothing to do with my abuse....actually the abuse made it harder to watch gay porn.

In my case I do "label" myself as gay. That is not a result of my was how i was made and it took me YEARS to accept myself for who I am.

Accept that this is how you deal with things and there is nothing wrong with it at all. To be honest I would rather you be at home watching porn and JO then going out and acting out. This much safer.

Just my two cents...

Peace and Tranquility all depends on your frame of reference.

The old timers at this site can tell you I have posted a'lot on this subject, I am going to repost some of it now.


Masturbation is a biological issue, not a moral one. Unless itís causing carpal tunnel, getting you arrested or kicked off the bus it should not be an issue at all. But there are those who believe that stay at home poll vaulting (#751) is wrong and immoral mostly because of passages from the bible taken out of context. People masturbate, itís just a fact of life. Some more then others.

Masturbation is not just a guy thing, it's a human thing. It's something you are going to do at some point. I am willing to say that a compulsive need for porn is not healthy, but I think the occasional extended weneewash in the shower is not unhealthy.

Yes, porn desensitizes us, we need more and more to become stimulated. But at some point you need to draw the line between drowning in porn and normal masturbation. 100 years ago women did not even exspose there ankles. Men still 'loped the mule.' We can hind many was to feel bad about it, but not a real alternative to it. We make up silly euphemisms for it, as even if the word it's self was to shameful to mention. Do we really need 500+ ways to not say masturbation?

I giggled as I wrote this, as if I was doing something naughty. But was I? I was just talking about it but this pointless hardwired shame kick in. After all I am an adult, and am free to do what I want in the privacy of my own home. But we give so much power to this very simple act that we have very little power to control. At some point I'm going to engage in that act, I'm not going to feel guilty over it. At some point I'm going to use a silly euphemisms and giggle like I was back in JR High School. The problem is not masturbation, the problem is thinking we have to be ashamed of something that is not our fault.
You can mix almost any combination of verb and noun and come up with a euphemism for masturbation. Try it!

Buttering the bread
Folding the laundry
Programming the VCR
Defragging the hard drive

And so on.

It's that ubiquitous.

Ok 2nd part.

As for the more... active names we give our little habit, look at the mechanics of the sex act in general. Un less you're in a pornographic movie one person is doing all the work, and we know who that is. So it stands to reason that we would use... more colorful euphemisms.

Now, if you will excuse me I'm going to go let the cat out (see what I mean.)

yeah nate, I can't really say what is right or wrong for you. But jerking off is a natural thing that men do. Whether you have been abused or not. And I don't no one man, gay or straight, that doesn't partake in watching porn to some degree. You can abuse anything, whether it is porn, alcohal, moderation, I personally see nothing wrong with maturbation.

Now if it triggers you, that is another quit beating your self up, my friend...jake

My reply:
Everyone's case is different. But I think that my case may be similar to Peter. I didn't watch porn until the year after my abuse was over. I was 1st year in university when I watched my first porn. That was also around the time when I watched gay porn for the first time. Deep within, I was looking to connect with other males because of a deep longing that my abuser left in me. And due to my SA, I thought that sexual acting out with the person that I care for is the deepest intimacy/connection one can have with another person. In fact, that's what my abuser told me repeatedly during the abuse, that the reason he was doing this to me was because he loved me... to a certain extend, I still believe that to be true. =( When I did watch porn, I felt disguised with myself that I would allow myself to be abused all over again. In my therapy session, my T told me that M is often a way for survivors to have a sense of regained control since the controlling power was taken away from us during the abuse. In a sense I would say that I agree with my T because a lot of times I would change the scenerio to how I want it when I j/o. Anyway, not sure if this helps. But just know that you are not alone.
